FREE Holiday Greeting Tag and Pocket | December 03, 2012

I know the incessant carolling can be mind-numbing, the overly crowded shops are tear-your-hair-out frustrating and the tinsel is overwhelming but I love this season. Probably because it gives me an excuse to go details crazy. And we all know how much I love my details. Wrapping, baking, decorating... oh my!

With this holiday freebie, I decided to go for a little more of a traditional vibe... because the classics can be fun too!

It's a kind of tag/card hybrid to adorn your gifts or send in the mail- and it's available in 2 designs. I have also included a cute red and blue plaid pocket to tuck the tag into. The recipient can put the tag on display, much like a greeting card, except it can be tied to the Christmas tree or a hook, or decorative branches...

Oh, and the little toothpick signs that you see in some of these photos are part of freebie set that I will make available soon, so stay tuned!

FREE Patterned Holiday Gift Tags | December 02, 2012

Firstly, I want to send out big hugs to all those who sent sweet comments and tweets regarding my new site- it makes me so happy to receive such positive feedback!  It's always a little nerve-wracking when you make such a major change so it's been wonderfully encouraging. You guys rock- Thank-you so much!! xo

Now, onto some holiday goodness...

Down here in Oz we usually celebrate our Christmas in the scorching heat. Our festive season is a flurry of barbecues, pool and beach parties, picnics and warm sunshine... not exactly the typical motifs associated with the holiday season.

So I thought I'd create a series of patterned gift tags in bright colours to reflect a more modern and summery feel for your holiday gifts! If you're interested in trying a slightly less traditional look for your gifts this year, these tags may be for you!

FREE Printable 'Let's Do Cocktails' Cards | October 03, 2012

As promised, here's the final installment in the "Let's Do" series. Go forth and make cocktail dates with your friends!

EDIT OCT 5th: Ok, so here's the thing. Turns out I accidently used an older version of the card in the photo shoot which is why the lettering is different in this photo as compared to the PDF artwork. Whoops! Anyway, I've now included both versions for you to download. Apologies!

FREE Printable "Let's Do Coffee" Cards | September 03, 2012

Ahhh... coffee. I gave up caffeine a number of years ago because I found that it did strange things to both my mood and my stomach. When I say 'strange', I don't mean in a good way.

I deeply miss coffee.  Especially that first cup in the morning that provides you with the all-important ability to function as a normal human being. In truth, I find the ritual of it more compelling than the actual taste. Also the social aspect-  sharing a cup of coffee over a deep and meaningful (and oftentimes, not so deep and meaningful!) with a friend.

So, for all you lucky coffee drinkers out there, (as envious as I am of you all), I've designed these "Let's do Coffee" cards that you can use to make coffee dates with friends. They are business card size which means that you can carry them around in your wallet. 

Furthermore, I was inspired to create a series of "Let's Do" cards. Above is a sneak peek.... I will be releasing the other two soon!

FREEBIE: 'Bon Appetit' cutlery tags { Part One } | July 27, 2012

As you probably have figured out, I love details. I'm a consummate 'details' nerd.

Some might say that attaching a tag to your dinner party guest's cutlery that wishes them 'bon appetit'  is gratuitous nonsense. I, on the other hand, live for this stuff.

You know you do too.

Valentine's Day (Oldies but) Goodies | February 03, 2012

With Valentine's Day just around the corner, I thought I'd revisit some of my old Valentine's Day DIY projects from previous years...just in case you missed it, or simply felt like taking another peek!  Most contain free stationery printables to help you re-create the project for yourself.

DIY 'Je t'aime' coffee cup wrappers - Wouldn't it be cute to surprise a loved one on Valentine's morning with a cup of coffee for the road that literally says 'I love you'?  With this concept in mind I designed these love-themed wrappers that can be used to dress up a disposable coffee cup. The perfect romantic gesture for the caffeine obsessed!

DIY 'Je t'aime' mini card sets - I really enjoyed creating the design for the 'Je t'aime' coffee cup wrappers' so I thought I'd also transform them into mini cards with polka dot lined envelopes.

DIY Valentine Post-it Love Notes - To elicit a smile or two from your loved one on Valentines's day, try writing sweet little messages on post-its and leave them in unexpected locations for your partner to find.

DIY Origami Heart Love Note - Create an origami paper heart and write a private message to a loved one inside.

DIY Valentine Popcorn Invitation ( for a cosy night in ) - Instead of splurging on dinner at a fancy restaurant, have a cosy night in on the couch. A couch 'picnic' of sorts. Snuggle under a blanket, order take-out, indulge in champagne, popcorn and candy in front of your favourite romantic movie. Download the bits n' pieces to re-create this 'popcorn' invitation to give to your loved one.

Free Holiday Knit Gift Tags | December 15, 2011

So, what has everyone got planned for the holiday break? On the very top of my list are activities that involve minimal thinking and couch appreciation.

We're also looking forward to Sukie's very first trip to the beach and enjoying other dog-friendly excursions. I'm certain there will also be much merriment over various BBQs with friends, regular meltings in the summer heat and excessive chocolate consumption. (I've come to the conclusion that it is impossible to avoid sugar overload during the holidays so this year I'm not even going to try.)

But before I get ahead of myself, there is still much to be done. As usual, I have left everything to the absolute last minute. Next week will be a flurry of gift making, packaging and shopping- oh my.

Anyway, please enjoy these gift tags that I've designed for you- Hope they help you with your last minute gift projects.
