So is your December flying by like mine is? Craziness.
I’ve been busy with Christmas goodies – making lots of custom orders from my Etsy shop, in between fun crafts with the kids.
I loved what Jeannett had to say today about relishing her imperfect but oh so meaningful tree, covered with sweet family treasures.
Yep. That’s my kind of tree. Cozy and real. Charlie Brown’ish.
Anyway, back to the crafts. While I’m not particularly crafty, I do love a simple cut-out project :)
I aspire to be more craft-like. Really I do. Right now I just need a few more hours in the day … and maybe to live closer to my friend, Jesse, the crafting queen.
In the meantime, here’s a little round-up of some free printables I’ve come across this week.
First, these adorable gift tags from Ginger & George – super cute.
And then these understated and elegant tags from Jones Design Company (another Emily!)
For these fun ornaments, we just printed them on heavy white card stock, cut out (they even had dotted lines for us and everything), hole punched and hung on the tree (the Charlie Brown’ish one) with rustic twine.
I told you – I like easy ;)
Here’s one of the birdies in her new home
And to wrap it up – not exactly Christmas-y, but getting a jump on the new year – I found this customizable calendar from My Owl Barn.
All owls. All the time. And you can pick the pictures you want, where you want them.
Fun is not a big enough word ;)
Apologies for the not so award winning photos. I can’t find the battery charger for my real camera.
Better work on that before Christmas.
Which reminds me … I’m a little behind in the Christmas card department. Just finished ours today.
Here’s hoping I have them in the mail by Monday …
Meanwhile, let me know if you come across any other great printables!
I’m working on a few ideas of my own – these have all gotten me so inspired.
I’ll keep you posted :)
