I just came across Kim Welling's awesome etsy shop, Kim's Little Monsters! She's an illustrator and all round creative person from the Netherlands. How rad are these Instant Comfort Pocket Boxes?! I was awestruck.
"Some days... you just need a little bit of consolation. So pull this little handmade treasure out of your pocket and you'll instantly feel better! Or give this box to a friend to cheer him or her up!"
Little boxes with 3D illustrations and words of comfort inside:
Or how about these wooden portrait brooches, each with its own personality story:
"Megan, the illustrator: Megan is addicted to blogging and knits in her spare time."
Plus other goodies like these cups and saucers:
Such great ideas, and more on her blog as well, I couldn't possibly post it all! Go have a look :)
