Emilie Guelpa is a French author, based in Paris. During her pregnancy with her daughter, Louise, she became inspired to decorate Louise's room with handmade items, realising how much she could achieve with her hands and the materials she had in the house. Once Louise arrived, Emilie continued her crafting endeavours to make soft animals, sensory toys and clothes that Louise would treasure forever. Emilie hopes that this book will inspire readers to do the same for their own babies, grandchildren or friends' babies. She is also a photographer and runs a travel and food blog.
