20 Heartwarming Photos Of Kids Playing With Their Cats

Published by:

Cats are cute. Kids are cute. But when cats and kids get together to play, they are cuter than the sum of their parts. These photos that we collected (and, hopefully, the ones that you guys will submit as well) of children playing with cats are a perfect storm of cuteness.

Playing is important for both the cat’s development and the child’s, but it’s often good to supervise them – for both the child’s and the cat’s sake. Cats are used to playing with their claws and teeth bared. This may not be a problem when a kitten does it, but if not dissuaded, this behavior can continue into adulthood, when it becomes dangerous. Children, for their part, can often get excited and underestimate their own strength, either hurting the cat or provoking it to defend itself.

If you’ve got any cute pictures of kids playing with their cats, please add them to this list!

Artist Uses Home Sewing Machine To Capture Nature’s Most Delicate Forms With Embroidery

Published by:

Embroidery art often seeks to mimic nature, but Australian visual artist Meredith Woolnough has a special technique we’ve never seen before. By using water-soluble fabric, her beautiful embroidery, which is inspired by nature’s most graceful forms, gains a new dimension of lightness and delicacy.

First, she traces a natural form onto her water-soluble fabric. Then, once she has embroidered her art onto the fabric and dissolved it, she mounts the resulting artwork on a piece of paper, a wall, or whatever other format the artwork demands. Some are even suspended in clear resin or framed. And she does it all with a regular domestic sewing machine!

Check out Wollnough’s blog, which has more of her art as well as tips and tricks for people looking to embroider their own nature art.

I thought I had seen it all when it comes to type posters with inspiring quotes so when I stumbled upon a series of type posters inspired by Disney quotes I had to share. That’s the inspiration behind Nikita Gill’s posters referencing movies like The Princess and the Frog, Cinderella, Peter Pan and many others.

Nikita is a typography and branding designer, part time ukulele lover, and full time special needs researcher. She loves photography, painting and poetry. For more information visit https://www.behance.net/nikitagill
