wrapping with lace

A wonderful someone emailed me asking a few questions about my post "bridal shower gift: wine glasses and a wine basket" and mentioned it would be for her daughter's wedding favors.  She wants to wrap the favors similarly to the way I wrapped the boxes.  Assuming the favors would be much smaller I decided to do some research to show her examples of smaller lace-wrapped boxes and wanted to share my findings.

Blogger: Such Pretty Things has a wonderful tidbit on Paper Lace Favors - and the textured paper she uses adds such a delicate detail to the presentation.

I also found one of the greatest inventions to add to a gift-wrappers arsenal- Lace Tape - WHHAAATT?!  Yes I said it, tape with a lace design on it!!  And most are decently priced!!

This one is like a sticker- found on Amazon.com

This one is actual lace- found on Etsy - ships from South Korea

Pen & Paper Flowers has a fantastic use of scotch Duct Tape- lace design

Oh my!!  Such a wonderful find and I wouldn't have known about it had it not been for my emailer Maria!  The uses for these are endless!!

cheap and easy [temporary] privacy window covering

Who would have knew how many uses there were for GLAD Press'n Seal??  I've never actually purchased or used this before, but decided to copy a neighbor and use it as a temporary privacy window covering.  We ordered shutters and lucky for us, our order lands over two major holidays (Thanksgiving and Christmas) which gets our installation date in early January.  We've got windows EVERYWHERE in our new house and our next door neighbor can see into our living room window, as can the neighbors from the street...

Our shutter company, unfortunately, didn't give us those temporary accordion shades, but some plastic that purely acts as a privacy covering- it prevents people from seeing through however doesn't do much with regards to blocking the sun from shining in.  They only provided them for the bathrooms and master bedrooms [boo].  So much for the other 16 windows in the house...

In comes Press'n Seal!  It's sticky on one side and it easily sticks to the window…

our back yard project

We've always wanted to have a small house party, but felt overwhelmed with just 5 people in the living room.  In comes MY back yard project because I was tired of dust blowing into the house and staring at that ugly cinder block wall...not to mention that project that the previous owners started and never finished (see lower right hand corner of photo below).  Eric took ownership of wanting to decorate and 'spruce up' our living room, making it feel really homey and welcoming.  So MY project was the yard and my vision to make it less drab.  Our yard is teeny-tiny and fits right in with our 3 bedroom, 1200 sq. ft. house.  

Our friend had a landscaper do their back yard and he came highly recommended, so we went with them without question.  I wanted pavers, artificial grass and two trees/plants.  The landscaper recommended plants that crawl on the wall in effort to sooth my Issue with the cinder blocks...  I wasn't satisfied...  So I hunted and surfed the web for a week…
Guess what!?  I am about 2 weeks away from launching the Ultimate Instant Pot Beginner Handout!!  I am so excited to share this with you!!  It has taken me a little longer than I would have wanted, but there is so much love jam-packed into 10 pages with tons of helpful tidbits!! 

There are so many moving parts and pieces that need to be in place before it goes live on Etsy and I am working hard to make it all happen!  I have also decided to offer a printed version and a gift version so you can kick back and relax and I'll have it shipped directly to you and your loved ones!

Honestly this has been such a fun journey so far and I eagerly await to hear your feedback once you get your hands on one!
