Getting hot in here

Monday, January 27, 2014

Last Valentines Day, I shared a fun simple craft I made with matchboxes.

I coated them in chalkboard paint, replaced the matches with redhots and wrote love notes with chalk. 


This year, I came across yet another matchbook idea from the talented Kimi of the stationary company A Printable Press, which was shared on the blog A Practical Wedding


She designed these vintage style matchbooks which are free downloads!! Inside are really sweet 'matches' that you can turn into coupons, ask your sweetie out on a date, or just profess your feelings! They are totally customizable. 

{wouldn't this be a cute way to ask your sweetheart to marry you???} 

To get the directions and the downloadable PDF to make these for yourself, visit A Perfect Wedding

Favorite gift tag printables

Wednesday, December 12, 2012

I love free printables! Many gracious bloggers are offering up their talents in the form of gift tags, cards and advent labels. All of these are available for us to download and use for free! These are my favorites from across the web.

Mapping it out

Tuesday, September 11, 2012

What better day to feature a great USA project than on a day full of reflection and remembering. I spied this fun activity over at Seleta's and thought this was such a creative tool to help our 'visual learners' to learn the states of our great country. 


This free large size printable can be downloaded, printed and mounted to cardboard.{I wonder if you couldn't also mount it to thin cork or magnetic sheets?!} After it's cut out, it, becomes a great puzzle.


The little flags allow the whole family to mark their special places--birthtowns, vacation spots, places yet to discover.


I love the colors and the little 'stitching' details. Wouldn't this be great simply framed and hung on the wall of a nursery or playroom??!  Download it here and let me know how you plan to use it!


Laundry Art

Wednesday, January 25, 2012

I have admitted before that I have a hoarders size collection of design magazines. I love going back through them because I always find something that may not have appealed to me when it first arrived in the mail, but, may now provide inspiration for a new project.


Such is the case when I was perusing back through my Better Homes and Gardens: 100 Decorating Ideas under $100. {Spring 2010}


 Designer Wendy Musgrave first discovered these 4 Laundry tips in a 1961 BH &G Sewing Book. She framed the vintage illustrations and they became great free artwork in her laundry room.

Now, I am fairly certain this is not the color scheme I would use in my own laundry, but they could easily be framed in a different color frame. But, the best part is that the pen and ink illustrations are available to be downloaded.  

 If you want to add some whimsy to your laundry room, go here to download all 4 illustrations. Think of them as constant 'Mom Reminders' {or Grandma Reminders for all you young'uns} and certainly we can all use those.
