Things We Love To Do

PRINTABLES

We MOVED! all of a sudden these are coming to my attention :) … I wonder why.

A journaling page all about food this is fun, it gives suggestions for things to write about, or notes to make. One of those things you REALLY wanted to remember in 5 years … now you can.

Another printable journal page this one weighs on the humorous side. Kinda like the list you make in your head and then the voice that talks back to it.

BEAUTIFUL free printable art Um, yes. I cannot wait to print and frame some of these for the new house. My favorite is “I like people who smile when it’s raining”.

It’s that time of year, CAN SOMETHING and have a party to do so. Bring the wine, the host will love you … well, she already does because you got this invitation in the mail. Post Mail. Awhhhh Yeeeeaah. Snap.

Nature Scavenger Hunt this is on our Summer Jar list … a treasure hunt I called it. But still! I love that the work is done for me and we’re guaranteed an afternoon of the outdoors and adventure.

Castle Peeps Book Plates I would love to start a tradition of buying a brand new book and then letting my daughter write her own name in the book plate … I have very few books from my childhood and I don’t think any of them have my penmanship in them. I just love the nostalgia of it.

Ice Cream Sundae PASSPORT Genius. What a great idea! And no matter that we’ve already been to a few ice cream shops this year, we’ll HAVE to go again because the passport needs it’s STAMP!! (Another Summer Jar item? Or maybe just a weekly outing?) I love this idea.

Recipe card so lovely. A great way to make a personal and inexpensive gift feel very expensive and very thoughtful.

MAKE STUFF

Felted roast chicken I’m not usually a fan of the felted toys. Just not my thing, I guess … but this one tickled me. Maybe because I could see myself using it more as decoration or a prop of some kind than my kids actually playing with it. For instance. A great “take along” to a pot luck, they just said a dish to pass, am I right? Or how about forgetting that it was 5:30 and dinner should be ready soon … throw the fake chicken on the table with a side of canned corn. THEY’LL NEVER KNOW.

Turn an old tin into a magnet so easy, so affordable, so cute.

Super simple wind scarf Not sure when I would actually wear this, but I like the idea of it. Maybe for that one time a summer we ride a boat? Or maybe this will inspire me to make reservations on that boat-dinner-cruise. Could be very classy.

Fabric Pup tent oh yes. I would like this just so I can take this photo, only it’d be my kids inside. Such a great idea. And a great addition to any child’s imagination.

What’s all the fuss about finger painting? Right. This. Don’t have kids but still want some do-it-yourself art … this is a great application. Or maybe you have furbabies? Get their paws in on this one.

Living masterpiece I’d like to see an entire town get in on this one … a garden tour turned museumesque exhibit? Or the local arts council get behind this and there’s ticket sales for the show. I know my daughter would FREAK OUT if she were part of an exhibit that people came to see because of her.

Zigzag accordion book HOW TO. These are fun and an easy addition to a gift with a dollar limit. Trading names for the holidays? Or on a tight gift budget for showers and birthdays? The recipient always loves something that will continue to give after the first initial unwrapping.

Speaking of gifts, be the envy of everyone there wrap it with extraordinary detail.

Crochet a necklace circa 1937. Classic.

I’m all about the braids my daughter finally has hair that will tame itself into a french braid … really anything other than a baby clip and I’ve been having a blast playing with it. This is such an original way to do it. Can’t wait to give it a go.

Rose wreath I want to make this RIGHT NOW.

You’re not allowed to be afraid of something that is so pretty. Get over the jitters and do yourself a favor. Get to know your insects.

Simple bias tape purse a great beginner project.

Make beautiful things … if they have to sit around they might as well be pretty to look at. Stop using the faux glass plastic coasters that look like it just rained. No really. I’ve been meaning to tell you how bad they look … so has everyone else who has to use them because you’re varnished coffee table is “getting you through til you can afford the new living room set”.
