Christmas table styling | shop the look

09/12/2018

In a recent post, we created a set of printable stationery for your Christmas gifts and table settings and to photograph the items, we set up a festive tablescape in my dining room. We really enjoyed the process and loved the outcome, so we thought it would be nice to share some of images with ideas for decorating the table…

Printable Christmas Stationery Set 2018

04/12/2018

Designing a set of free printable Christmas gift tags for you, our lovely readers and social media followers, has become somewhat of a tradition around here. With the exception of last year (and I’m not even sure what happened there), I have put out a set from the very beginning in 2013 through 2014, 2015 and 2016. It’s quite interesting to look…

Monoshop: DIY Calendar

02/04/2017

I have for some time now been a fan of Monoshop, a South Africa based, Scandinavian style online store selling a small but beautiful collection of furniture and homewares. I have raved about them here on the blog before (see here), but this time around, it’s a more personal scenario. Petro at Monoshop recently reached out to me to ask if I…

DIY Father’s Day snack pack

04/06/2016

I’m surprisingly well prepared for Father’s Day this year. I’m not entirely sure how that came about, since I’ve been feeling particularly frantic lately, but then who am I to question such a formidable show of diligence (LOL!) – let’s just roll with it. Truth be told, I’ve seen a bunch of cute stuff for Father’s Day on Pinterest in the past…

Printable Christmas Gift Tags 2015

24/11/2015

Don’t you love a free printable? I sure do. I remember when I first started reading blogs, many of my favourite design blogs were found as a result of searching for free printables. I’m particularly fond of gift tags, so now that I have a blog, for the past two years I have designed a set of Christmas gift tags to offer as a free download for my own readers….

Printable Christmas gift tags 2014

13/11/2014

The silly season is fast approaching. Again. Can you believe that? Are you making plans and starting to prepare for the holidays? I’m slowing moving in that direction. Last year I designed some Christmas gift tags which I made available for free download on the blog. Since they were really popular, I thought I’d do the same again this year. This year’s…

DIY reward jar

08/05/2014

I don’t know about your household but there is a fair amount of bribery that goes down in ours. In fact, I like to think of it less as bribery and more as an apropriate reward system. The kind that keeps things running smoothly around here (sound convincing?) And whilst I am quite strict when it comes to my kids’ consumption of sweets, I…
