this is wof and num! two characters we made last night that we instantly have bonded with.

num (pronounced “noom”) is character hen had been wanting to make for a while now, based off stories he grew up with about the raven and the sun and several about thunderbirds. and as always we love having matching characters so hen helped me make wof (literally just “woof”.) it acts exactly like a dog and is very protective of num, who is very mischievous and is always up to something.

fitted crib sheet in berry kilim print by iviebaby

expecting, or know someone that is? well, be a pal and point them (or yourself!) in the direction of iviebaby on etsy. this shop features nursery bedding and accessories like boppy covers that are so super chic, you’ll want some for yourself in adult-size. srsly. kilims and arrows and elephants and ikat and oh so much more!!

I made a lasagna! The noodles are flat sheets of “pasta” made from egg, cream cheese, and psyllium husk powder. Grain free, and surprisingly effective. I found half a block of cream cheese in my fridge. Not enough to make cheesecake, but enough for weird fake noodles!

Also pictured, how ridiculously uneven my oven is, with one side nearly burnt and the other not quite done. The little apartment oven that (almost) could.


Lucie THOMAS (zim&zou)


Lucie Thomas is half of the duo Zim&Zou. They studied graphic design (design, publishing, advertising) during three years. The duo decided to focus on installations using handcrafted objects made out of tangible materials such as paper, wood, thread, etc… rolling away from computer design. Anchored in craftsmanship, they create all the elements composing their installations by hand, from drawing to cutting and assembling.Their favorite material is the paper they’re manipulating to give rise to intricate and colorful sculptures. Paper inspires them for its versatility, infinite range of colors and unique textures. The flat paper sheets turned into volume are giving an installation the poetry of ephemeral material.
