We bring you a regular little round up of cool things we've seen on the internet we think you might like. You know, just to keep you in the loop...

Well, first of all, may we congratulate you all for making it to the end of January in one piece! Well done, everyone. Soon we'll be precisely half way through winter and before long Spring will be on its way - but in the meantime, enjoy some warmth, sunshine and super-sweet Candyland loveliness with this series of photographs. Taken by Munich based photographer Nick Frank, Ricard Bofill's La Muralla Rojo never looked so beautiful. See more of the Candyland project here on Nick's website. Now. Can we go to Alicante please?

You might remember we introduced you to BleepBleeps favourite Morag Myerscough way back in the very first edition of The Loop? Well, today we're sending big high fives her way. Look at the brilliant bursts of colour she's added to the new wing of Sheffield Childrens Hospital. Super-cool, right? Find out more about the project here.    

Now, glo-sticks at the ready please because Big Fish Little Fish Family Rave Techno Special is coming to a town near you! If you thought your clubbing days were over, think again. Big Fish Little Fish is a grassroots music and events crew hosting mini themed music events especially for families with young children. With bubble machines, glitter cannon, fancy dress themes, fun inflatables and areas to play, make, learn and chill out (there really is a 'babies only' chill out space complete with soft play mats, ball pit and comfy bean bags!), the whole family is bound to have a blast. To find out more and to book tickets, visit the Big Fish Little Fish website

And to maximise those cosy colourful vibes we can all benefit from at this time of year, we're leaving you with five minutes of yarn courtesy of textile artist Elizabeth Pawle. Elizabeth lives in Suffolk with her young family and creates these colourful, freeform embroideries and weavings that have become highly coveted by art lovers all over the world. Find out more on Elizabeth's website or follow her Instagram account for 'work in progress' peeks at her process. Dreamy!

The Loop #50

This week in The Loop we marvel at Melissa Kaseman's gorgeous photography project, Preschool Pocket Treasure, in which she documents the contents of her three year old son's pockets. We also step back and appreciate KITRA's excellent large scale murals and environmental installations and we contemplate following Handmade Charlotte's instructions on how to make a DIY 'Off The Grid' play house!

The Loop #49

This week in The Loop we take a virtual trip to The Color Factory in San Francisco, give the thumbs up to a toolkit that helps kids establish good habits and positive relationships with food and we thank designer Tsuyoshi Miyazaki for making such joyful playthings!
