Before I left on my trip recently, I was really worried about my little vegetable container garden. I try to take really good care of these little guys and I was going to be leaving them at a crucial time. Tomatoes were really taking off and loads of strawberries were blooming. My son volunteered to take care of the garden for me but was confused about when to water each plant so I whipped up some plant care labels to make the job easier for him.

Here’s a cute last minute printable for you. If you have little ones and you’re planning on leaving carrots for the Easter bunny, print out this Dear Easter Bunny card that I created. I miss the days when my son would leave the Easter Bunny a card and some carrots. Every year after he went to bed, I’d take bites out of the carrots as “proof” the bunny had actually stopped by.

If you make handmade items or have a handmade shop, I have a fun printable for you today. I created this cute “cross stitch” Handmade By cards. They can be used as tags for homemade or handmade gifts or in your packages from your shop. Aren’t they fun?

I’ve been using a menu planner / grocery list system for years. Long before I started this blog, I created a little half sheet so I could plan out the family meals for the week and jot down my groceries. I decided to update my planner and share my new version with all of you.

Yesterday I shared my new recycled pasta sauce spice jars. I just love how they turned out and I feel like I’ve made another small step toward organizing and decluttering. I know that there’s no shortage of spice jar labels out there but I still wanted to share the ones that I made with you.

For the fifth straight year, I’m so pleased to be able to share with you the free customizable Owl Lovers Calendar. I love this calendar and I’m so happy that Shivani of My Owl Barn has continued this wonderful collaboration. This year 46 artists from around the world have contributed to the calendar.

A few weeks ago I created some free printable Birch Gift Tags and they were quite popular. Yay! In honor of Thanksgiving, I created a matching set of Birch Thank You cards. I’m so thankful for all of you and wanted to share these with you on this day of thanksgiving. The link to download the free printable is at the end of the post.
I made a version with a nice serif font.

Guess what I’m going to be making for Christmas gifts? Lots and lots of pretty spiral bound notebooks. And it’s super easy now that I have a Cinch by We R Memory Keepers. The Cinch is basically like a comb binder but with nifty features that make it easy to create pretty notebooks.

It’s November everyone. Time to get real about the holidays. I know it seems early but I made these pretty birch gift tags and I wanted to share them with you so we can all get a head start on our holiday prep. The free printable is at the bottom of this post.

It’s so fun receiving real snail mail and even more fun when it’s something enticing like a pretty envelope. I made several fun envelopes and they were so easy to create. I may never use a plain white envelope again.

I’m trying to be organized this year and get ahead with some unique and handmade gift ideas for the holidays. I thought these letterpress and die cut recipe cards using my Lifestyle Crafts Evolution would be perfect.

As part of the Lifestyle Crafts Studio Team, I also get to use the We R Memory Keepers line of products. So for this month’s project, I went back to basics and created a fun paper project. To make this U.S.A. Pin Map, I really went old school and only used a pair of trimming scissors, craft knife and cutting board. No fancy tools necessary for this project.

The hardest part about being on the Lifestyle Crafts Studio Design Team is deciding what to make. Not because I can’t think of something but because there are so many goodies to share with you. This month, I made something super easy but still fun and cheerful.

Uh oh… guess what day it is? It’s National Scrapbook Day. Did you know? I didn’t either but luckily I’m part of the Lifestyle Crafts Studio Design Team and they keep me up to date on all these things. Once I found out, I couldn’t wait to celebrate and what better way then participating in a blog hop.

If you’re a scrapbooker or paper crafter, you probably know what ephemera is. They’re bits of paper typically used in paper crafting. The actual definition is: things that are important or useful for only a short time: items that were not meant to have lasting value: paper items (as posters, broadsides, and tickets) that were originally meant to be discarded after use but have since become collectibles. I love these pretty little bits of book pages and other tidbits.
