Gift Idea: Family Tree

Monday, April 28th, 2014

I’ve mentioned before that we have A LOT of people to cover when it comes to gift-giving. Being one of 8 children, we’re always going back and forth as to whether we should still get everyone gift. As Christmas is only once a year, we all say let the madness continue, and we’ll least cover Christmas!

I’ve started the tradition of making my gifts, and this last year I decided to keep it in the family and make these family trees. They were a HUGE success (yesssssss!) what’ s not to love with something so simple and personal?

These were actually really simple and even cheap to make (giving out all my secrets here!) about $5 each!

I bought the frames at Target on sale at 70% off. There is ALWAYS frames for sale there, so always good to stock up on for a later date. If you need frames immediately go to Ikea for the bargains.

Next I simply printed out the tree from Martha Stewart (found HERE).

Then because I didn’t like the way she did the names I simply typed and printed them out and cut as little flags (see above), and ta dah you’re done.

Tip: When I need something printed ‘nicely’ I go to Staples or Office Depot with my own card stock. They only charge about 10 cents a sheet, and it looks lovely!

Pretty good for just $5 and about an hour of work, huh?!

Sarah’s Organization Project: Birthday Cards

Monday, February 11th, 2013

My organization project was really just for the house, but I’ve really caught the bug and nowhere is off limits. :)

Being part of a big family, we have LOTS of birthdays and they are so hard to keep track of. I use THIS system Em blogged about a few years back. But also found having a list somewhere I see daily helps me pop them in the post on time.

Over at The Project Girl, she has a great free printable (see HERE).

I also emailed my family a copy…now there’s no excuse!


New Year Header

Tuesday, January 1st, 2013

Good morning Everyone! I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and a very happy New Year!

Yesterday I shared this project over at Lil Luna, but thought I’d post it here too, in case you missed it!

It’s a cute little project to share to kick-start the new year: this free printable New Year’s stationery:

Simply download the design HERE, and print on regular cardstock.

I always love a fresh start, and New Year’s is a perfect time to set goals and visualize my future. By having my goals written down in a place I can see them, it’s easier to keep them fresh on my mind, and therefore easier to complete. Personally, I like to set only three or four goals, so completing them is actually doable!

What are your tips on goal making? We’d love to hear!


Pink + Gray

Monday, January 16th, 2012

I’m usually not a huge fan of pink, but with the month of love fast approaching, I’m quickly changing my mind.

These few images have me convinced that pink can be sophisticated and all grown up, especially when paired with a neutral so versatile as gray.

Wouldn’t this dresser be a great DIY project? I just love the subtle hues.

What do you think about pink? Are you in love or still on the fence?
