Canning Party Printables

Canning Party Printables

I’m so excited to finally be able to share with you these free canning party printables that I’ve been working on for Cottage Industrialist! I’ve been canning for a couple of years now, and I can’t believe that I didn’t start sooner. Homemade strawberry jam all year long? Yes, please!

In addition to the mason jar-themed printables, which include canning party invitations, envelope liners, recipe cards, jar labels and tags, you can find plenty of resources for getting set up to have your own canning party in my guest post over at Cottage Industrialist. Check it out!

Hygge Greeting Cards

Wow! These Hygge greeting cards at Lagom (UK) have just shot straight to the top of my wishlist. Hygge is a Danish word that, translated means “coziness” and “tranquility”, and that’s exactly what I’m feeling when I look at these. The tonal blue and white palette is perfect, reminiscent of Delftware, which I also love. I guess my blue obsession does, indeed, go beyond navy. Lagom ships worldwide, and I may be picking up several of these cards not only to give, but also to frame and hang on the wall.

Weekly Wrap #32 : Summer Lovin’

Weekly Wrap

Gingham Ribbon Gift Box Carolyn Roehm

This gift packaging idea from Carolyn Roehm is the perfect wrap for summertime gifts and favors, don’t you think? The baby blue and white gingham bow is the cherry on top, and the white silk flower and white on white patterned gift box are light, sunny, and beautiful.

You can purchase the favor size boxes from Carolyn Roehm (half off, too!), but if you need a custom size or something a little larger you could also use embossed scrapbooking/craft paper or even the embossed, paintable wallpaper adhered to cardstock to create your own gift and favor boxes.

INK + WIT Birch Wood Print

I think that we all struggle from time to time with negative, chaotic emotions and internal chatter that can bring us down and define us if we’re not careful, which is why I love this “Pull Your Weeds Plant Good Seeds” birch wood print by INK + WIT. The print is a reminder that we need to constantly be pulling those weeds (i.e., negative thoughts and emotions) and, in their place, “planting” emotions like hope and compassion.

Read more about the inspiration behind this print at the INK + WIT blog.

Little Otsu Notepads

I’m a big time list maker, which means that I’m always on the lookout for stylish notepads where I can jot down to do lists, grocery lists, and general need-to-remember kinds of things. Little Otsu has got it going on with several cutie patootie notepads, including absolutely adorable illustrated cat and dog notepads by Gemma Correll, Things to Remember notepads by Keri Smith, and lovely Clouds & Trees notepads by Martine Workman. All of the notepads are printed using soy inks on 100% post consumer waste recycled paper, so they’re eco-friendly, too!
