Giant Paper Bead Garland

by Ashley Page Norton 

I love making simple necklaces out of beads (evidence here) and often have my crafty friends over to work on jewelry projects. This garland would be perfect decor for a jewelry crafternoon but it’s so bright and graphic it could work for just about anything. These mega versions of my favorite seed beads come together quickly using whatever paper you have on hand. If you love stringing beads together this will be right up your alley!

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.

Cards for My Collection

I always keep a nice stock of cards in a box ready to send out snail-mail-style. Nothing better than finding a handwritten envelope mixed in with all your bills! Here are some new cards I want to add to my collection. Do you still send out real cards? For me the secret to sending out cards is having stamps on hand since going to the post office < death.
