by M.E. Russell

The Envelope Game | A New Years Printable

Usually at the end of the year, I'm left thinking: "Holy cow - that was fast! How has another year gone by already??" That's not the case this year, which is rare. These past twelve months have felt pretty long, and I'm totally ready to switch gears and hop into 2018 mode. I'm looking forward to welcoming in another new year, and to celebrate, I'm sharing with you this New Years printable game called The Envelope Game. It's great for parties where everyone might not know each other, or if you're celebrating with a bunch of introverts (shout out to my people) who might need a little party-participation push.

No Tag? No Problem! Print These DIY Holiday Gift Tags

by M.E. Russell

Free printable gift tags for your holiday wrapping needs!

I literally never remember to purchase gift tags at Christmastime - and I'm not using the term "literally" for extra drama here. I actually cannot recall a single time I've ever picked up gift tags at the store, put them in my shopping basket, and taken them to the register to check out. What usually ends up happening when I'm wrapping presents is I realize my mistake, try to find a nice-enough piece scrap of paper, scribble the recipient's...

Make This: DIY Paper Wishbone Garland for Thanksgiving

by M.E. Russell

Thanksgiving decoration done on the cheap: Paper Chain Wishbone Garland

I've been a vegetarian for over 13 years now, and there aren't many meat-eating rituals that I feel like I'm missing out on. I don't crave hamburgers, I don't really care for barbecuing, and carving a turkey isn't my style either. Free wishes, though...that's something I could use more of! This quick Thanksgiving decoration is as close to a wishbone as I'm getting, and after the holiday I'll be ripping a few in half so I can make a wish anyway.

Print These! Minimal Bathroom Wall Art

by M.E. Russell

Printable bathroom wall art: Scrub-a-dub

Decorating a bathroom can be tricky business. Not only is wall mostly space occupied by unmovable objects (like towel racks, shelving, or the tub) making the space tricky to decorate, but the washroom is also the most humid room in the house! When it comes to hanging wall art, you have to find pieces that are either moisture-resistant (like metal or acrylic), or pieces that don't need to stand up to the test of time. This is where printable bathroom wall art comes in. Talk about non-committal decor! Here are two, free designs to choose from, or to hang as a pair.

DIY This: Planetary Mobile for a Minimal Nursery

by M.E. Russell

Minimal Nursery decor: Make this planetary mobile

As nursery trends change, the traditional pinks and blues are slowly being pushed out in favor of current, updated looks. Parents are experimenting more and more with bolder hues, playful patterns, or simply less of it all. It's easy to see why the minimal nursery look is gaining in popularity. There are fewer elements to worry about, there aren't any color-related gender-indicators (which makes styling ahead of time a breeze), and the color palette is almost non-existent. If you're looking to decorate a minimal nursery or want to give a gift to a no-fuss parent-to-be, you can craft this sweet planetary mobile quickly and easily.

Free Printable Recipe Cards + How to turn them into a key ring booklet

While I don't consider myself much of a chef, I do have a few tried and true recipes that I need to hold on to. Previously, I was using the scraps-of-scribbed-paper-stuffed-in-a-cookbook method of organization (most of these scraps of paper were covered in various unidentifiable spills too - yikes!). Now, though, using these free printable recipe cards has definitely simplified life in the kitchen for me. All my recipes are in one place, the key ring makes them easy to rearrange and organize, and the plastic sleeves protect them from my clumsiness.

Wedding activity pages | Free printable!

Weddings can be exciting, emotional, and/or stressful times for everybody involved - except for the younger guests. For them, the majority of the day is dull, dull, and duller. Sure, it's awesome when the cake gets cut, but little Johnny couldn't care less about the best man's speech. If you're planning an upcoming wedding and want to give the kids something extra to do during the quiet times, gather up some crayons and print a few off a few...
