Planning on a DIY Christmas?

One of my favorite blogs – a daily read, for sure – Twig & Thistle posted a link to an online holiday mag called Gifted Magazine, and I am totally smitten! It is chock full of fun diy projects and links to lots of awesome crafty vendors for gift ideas. I definitely recommend checking it out if you’re ready for Christmas-y  content already.

One of the vendor links was to RiflePaperCo.com – a totally cute stationery & art print store that I’ve noticed around the wedding blogs for amazingly creative invitations and programs. Looks like they also have a beautiful holiday line too! I am in love with their personalized cards:

How adorable! I love their illustration style. Now, if only I had the money to splurge on such awesome cards with M and my little faces drawn on them! But it gets my mind whirring on drawing up my own self-illustrated Christmas cards. Heck, if we could DIY our wedding save-the-dates and invitations, why not Christmas cards?

Fun with Felt – Gift Bows!

One of my favorite daily indulgences is checking out the hugely inspirational blog at Twig & Thistle. There are just too many creative things that pop up there all the time, and I love it.

This week they are doing a really fun daily feature on felt crafts and Monday’s was such a perfect example of an idea so simple and inspired, it’s sheer genius.

With Christmas just around the corner, I know I will be scrambling to get all my gifts wrapped and adorned with care. I believe it’s the extra step with the wrapping that makes the recipient know how special they are! With the tutorial from T&T, you can make beautiful packaging bows that not only adorn the gift, but could be used over and over again, or even used as festive jewelry!

So thanks Twig & Thistle, for this inspired innovation! I’ll be pulling out my felt scraps for a few of these, to be sure! 🙂
