Celebrate the Peanut Baby Shower Invite

Wednesday, January 4th, 2012

2011 was such a big year for our group of friends. Lots of babies entered our little crowd and it was lovely to spend this New Year’s Eve with little ones in tow.

In the fall of 201o, Emi and I threw a shower for the first baby of our clan, Greta. I posted the invitations we designed on my personal blog (see HERE). We’re still surprised to receive emails and comments about this little project, so we thought we’d post it here on Boxwood Clippings with a Free Printable PDF for all those wanting to replicate it.

The boxes were found at GYGI in Salt Lake.

Simply Click HERE for the Front PDF, and HERE for the Back that you can customize and print.

Good luck, and don’t forget to shoot us a picture we’d love to see how yours turns out.

Happy New Year’s Eve everyone! I’m really excited for 2012, how about you guys?

This year I have lots of little goals, (such as reading 2 books a month), which if I didn’t write down I’m likely to forget. Therefore, I thought I’d update last year’s letterhead (seen HERE) for 2012. Please feel free to DOWNLOAD IT HERE and print IT for yourself, and lets make this year a rich and productive one!

Also, don’t forget about this other little free printable. Perfect for sending out a festive thank you for all the little treasures you received this season. See original post HERE.

See you in 2012!

Father’s Day Gift Ideas

Friday, June 3rd, 2011

Father’s Day is just around the corner so it’s time to start thinking about what to get the men in our lives. I have the hardest time shopping for men, as all the stores recommend the same old things like: tools + ties, but come on how many of those do they really need?

Here are a couple of ideas from the two of us that we’ve found to be great hits, we hope you find them useful:

NO.1 Bucky Balls are a great gift for any kid-at-heart; it’s crazy how entertaining making all sorts of different formations can be!  But watch out, they’re incredibly addicting.

No.2 A gift basket can be a great solution for any gift dilemma. My dad loves cheese, so I’ve used this theme for a yummy basket a couple of times before. But any idea for a basket can work great, for father’s day I’m thinking: football, games, favorite snacks, great condiments & sauces.

This cheeseboard basket pictured below is from World Market, and is currently on sale for $29.99.

No. 3 I really really like DIY projects, I think it adds a ton thought and a great personal touch. Martha has some great ideas and free printables HERE, to get your creative juices flowing.

and now over to Em…

I love backyard campfires.  I think this fire pit would make a wonderful Father’s Day gift.  You can’t beat gathering friends and family in the yard without the hassle of camping and the gross bugs.  This one is on sale at Target this week for $49.

You could also make a s’more kit to go along with it…how cute and yummy.

Next, is a total classic; grill stuff.  I think I could buy Brad a new grill utensil for any birthday or occasion and he would we thrilled.  Check out these great deals at Amazon.

I found this fun thing at Crate and Barrel.  A 3 in 1 grill cleaning contraption ($7.95).  Yes, I think it might trick him with it’s funky and mannish appearance and be oh so enticing to use ;)

I am all about these spice rubs for only $4.95.  They look so delicious, and would be a great pressy for any guy.

Have you thought of any great Father’s Day gifts for this year?  Please share!!
