It was so fun seeing people get so
For years I’ve loved the simple goodness of kraft paper packages and have used it to wrap holiday presents as well as birthday gifts and other goodies over the years. This holiday I’ve decided to experiment with some interesting ways to make my simple packages snazzy and festive with a handmade touch. With just a few supplies from your craft stash you can try
So let’s talk about lettering now. Gosh, I have so much to say…but I’m going to try to dish up a couple of good nuggets and lots of inspiration in each entry of this series of posts. So be sure and subscribe via Blog Lovin’ if you want to stay in the loop. My favorite lettering is elegant pointed pen modern calligraphy and brush calligraphy.
Today I have a fun project to share! Easy assembly just print the file, cut out the cards and punch holes in the corners to tie up with string or ribbon. A great project to do with the kids!

V day is in just two more days…are you ready? Well, with my crazy schedule, I'm readier than I would normally be at this time, usually, I'm helping the kids with their love notes the night before. And we almost always make them, of course! Sara and Cash made this fun heart with legos…Cash added his name this morning. So I made a quick Lego
It's that time of year again, time to do something sweet for your child's teacher. We do lots of personalized goodies at the store, stationery, acrylic cups, totes and so many fun things. So here's a little card you can add to your gift. I used these a couple of years ago and make packs of 10 or 20 personalized with Abby's teacher's names on
