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 #30

This week in The Loop the kids flex their critical and creative muscles as they get ready to take part in Anorak Magazine's Little Editors Scheme, we covet the colourful furniture project by Muller Van Severen and our penchant for a Lego brick gets a boost with Dutch design workshop Brikkon. It's a good 'un!

The Loop #29

This week in The Loop we get excited about the Institute of Imagination's first ever Live Lab event (it sounds GREAT!), we smile at Zenji Funabashi's wooden sculptures and we warm up at Sunny Side Up - an exhibition all about the colour yellow, by Josef Albers.  

The Loop #28

In our first post of 2017 we learn about the heartbeat simulating wearable that helps regulate mood and banish the January blues, we find out about G.F Smith's mission to find out the world's favourite colour and we get excited about a trip to The Magical Lantern Festival in Chiswick. To inspire some good habits for the new year, we leave you with Five Minutes of Bullet Journal! Enjoy.
