Printable Housewarming Invitations & Moving Announcements

by Michaela Egger

We’re in the middle of renovating our new home, packing up our old flat and moving. So, for my project this month the idea of a little DIY printable housewarming invitation came naturally. For me one of the best things about moving is having people over for the first time! These little invitations are fun and really quick to whip up. Once I had finished the printable housewarming party invitations, I wanted to make more! So, I came up with a little bonus for you peeps: pocket-sized moving announcements. These mini babies are great to carry in your purse and hand out to friends, neighbours, business partners.

Iron-On Veggie Bags

by Alix Sorrell

Did you know yesterday was National Eat Your Vegetables Day?! I don’t usually need an excuse to eat more than my fair share of vegetables but if you do perhaps these easy to make iron-on bags will inspire you to eat more. These bags are great for the farmers market or to store your veggies in the fridge!
