Weekly Wrap

Parchment Paper Flowers

My paper flower obsession continues to grow with every awesome idea that I find (there are SO many great ones out there!), and this clean, modern parchment paper flower packaging from Carolyn’s Homework makes me want to grab my oven parchment from the kitchen and start making my own pretty posies. The hand-fringed ribbon and fabric leaf are great finishing touches, too!

Head on over to Carolyn’s Homework to find out how she created this no-gift-wrap-needed package, just the thing for warm weather gifting.

Psst … before I head off for the weekend, I have to askĀ  if you’ve entered the awesome Felt & Wire giveaway yet? I’ll be taking entries through Sunday night, so let me know your favorite Momglish product, and you’ll be entered to win!

Letterpress Hello Notes

Well, hi there, lovely hello notes. These letterpress printed note cards from Bespoke Press would make a wonderful addition to any correspondence stash, and they’d be just the thing to give as a gift to a friend who loves pretty paper goods. The notes feature scalloped corners and a hand-lettered “hello” in vintage red and cornflower blue, and they come with handmade vintage map envelopes – sourced from Australia, the UK, and France – with sweet scalloped flaps. So pretty!

Printable Mother’s Day Set from JHill Design

Printable Mother's Day Card

Unfortunately, I think that most of us said or did some regrettable things to our mothers when we were younger. I’d like to think that I wasn’t too bad, but I did have a bit of a rebellious phase in my teenage years, and I’m sure that I was not as nice as I could’ve been to my mom during those times. I’m feeling guilty just thinking about it. Sorry, mom!

Jennifer Hill became a mom to cute little Charley three months ago (congratulations, Jennifer!), and during the past three months she’s found out just how HARD it is to be a mom (middle of the night baby screams, anyone?). As a result of this realization, she was inspired to create this Mother’s Day card/apology so all of us can assuage at least a little of our “mom guilt”. The set, which includes both a printable card and an e-card for any procrastinators out there, is available for free to anyone who joins the JHill mailing list, or for just $2.00 if you purchase from the shop.
