“So proud to have these wonderful books to dip into for a bit of nostalgia…All my children’s artwork from when they started nursery beautifully photographed and put in their own special book” JOOLS OLIVER

Hands up who’s been caught red handed by your kids stuffing precious bits of artwork into  the recycling bin hidden in a Cornflakes box? Totally guilty! We feign surprise, blame Daddy or the dog for the obviously accidental error. Our fridges are home to dog eared masterpieces, our drawers are crammed full of it and it just keeps coming. We love our kids creativity, really we do but there is sooo much of it, especially if you multiply it by two, three or four kids. We’re drowning in collages, beautiful paintings, 3D space rockets which we swore we would always treasure. That’s why we love Doodle Nest, the bespoke and stylish solution to manage the little Picassos in your household.

Doodle Nest was set up by two mums from Notting Hill who were overwhelmed with the sheer volume of artwork they had stashed away around their houses. Doodle Nest transforms children’s artwork into beautiful, bespoke, premium quality coffee table books which you have forever. Jools Oliver is a massive fan and so are we!

HOW IT WORKS

First you need to order a ‘Feed me artwork’  box from Doodle Nest. it’s massive!  You pay a £30 deposit which is then deducted from the cost of your book.

Gather your artwork and pop in the box. It can be collages, drawings, cards, 3D objects and then send it back to Doodle Nest. You can specify the order of the images or have a dedication or captions on the artwork.

Doodle nest then professionally photograph, edit each piece and layout the book. They will  send a proof for approval before it’s printed.

The lead time is 4-5 weeks. This is a testament to the amount of time and effort involved versus the standard books you can get printed virtually overnight.  Your artwork is all sent back to you so if you want it can be stored  in the attic for posterity.

Artbooks cost from £175 for up to 35 pieces of artwork. Not cheap we know but who knows how much that will be worth when your child becomes the next Matisse! The great news is that Doodle Nest are offering Morello readers 10% off their order if they order the box before the end of May. See below for more details.

It’s a one of a kind gift for children, parents, grandparents or God children which can be treasured forever.  And although you think the dates of each creation will always be etched in your memory, the sad truth is that it’s hard to keep track of which one of your kids drew which painting, let alone the dates. So why not create a coffee table book of their cute stick men pictures, fluffy sheep drawings or even the little notes they wrote for the tooth fairy!
