“Sleeping Like the Dead” – Dead and Breakfast Door Hangers

Welcome, foolish mortals, to the Lawrence Dead & Breakfast Inn, where you can rest in peace… if it weren’t for those pesky ghosts.

We are bringing our Dead and Breakfast theme back to life with a few clever decorations. Have you seen the Dead and Breakfast sign? What about the room keys?

Now we’re rounding out this year’s projects by laying you to rest – literally.

You’ve Been Booed

October is here and that means it’s time for boo-ing!

If you’re thinking, “What the heck is this?” Don’t worry… I’ll explain.

Booing is anonymously dropping off buckets of treats to neighbors in the spirit of the season. The goal is to not get caught delivering your gift, so it’s a fun combination of ding-dong ditch and Secret Santa.

Booing people is one of my favorite activities of the Halloween season. I’ve even taken it a step forward and started booing coworkers as well!

Earth Day Succulent Gift Tags

“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?

Why succulents?

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.

Halloween Spellbook Scrapbook

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 »
