“One of the first conditions of happiness is that the link between man and nature shall not be broken.” – Leo Tolstoy
I never miss an Earth Day. While I try to serve the earth as best I can throughout the year, I love having a day dedicated to spreading nature love. What better way to spread a little love than to make succulent gifts for your friends and family?
Did you know succulents have the same air purifying properties as most houseplants but are way easier to keep alive? Which is good news for any plants that make their way into my home. Between my black thumb and living in the desert, I struggle to find plants I can keep alive – except succulents. These little succ-ers have become my favorite plant companions and I’m sharing the love with everyone this year!
Added bonus – I got to be extra punny with this project! I mean really… life would succ without plants. See what I did there?! Funny, right?! I knew y’all would be on board with this.
You too can make these adorable gifts with my printable gift tags (link below). Keep reading for a few tips on how to make these adorable gifts in under 15 minutes.
I’m not a fan of scrapbooking. In my post about our wedding scrapbook, I described scrapbooking as “condensed hoarding”. I find the entire process to be overwhelming – collecting the pictures and stickers, thinking of clever layouts and designs, and ugh! the time it takes to put everything together! However, occasionally, I come up with an idea that is too much fun to resist.
I’ve always wanted to make a spellbook for Halloween decorations, but I couldn’t see putting in all the effort for something that would just sit on a shelf and never be looked at. No matter how many fake potions or spells I put into the book, it would never be looked at. So what purpose could it serve? Why, a scrapbook, of course! Read More »
Ah – the wedding dinner menu. Some people have them, some people skip them. Those who have them either print cards for the place settings or have a board up with the food options written out. The option brides and grooms chose depends heavily on how their food is being served. For our wedding, we served food family-style (large platters of food served to each table) so we decided a family-style menu would work just fine!Read More »
Tis the season for gift giving! I love picking out the perfect gift and carefully wrapping it in beautiful paper and bows. This year, instead of doing a full Christmas theme (we have a wedding on the front burner), we picked a holiday character instead. PENGUINS!
All of our paper either has penguins on it or is red, black and white, with bows and ribbons to match. Of course, I had to design matching penguin gift tags.
Aren’t they too cute?! The graphics are from ClipArtopia on Etsy.
