Free Art: Campers | The Handmade Home
Nothin’ like some free art y’all! I have a bit of an obsession with campers. I think it’s the fact that I like miniature versions of things, and you can’t get more of a miniature version of a house than a camper. And it beats sleeping in a tent! So I would love to pay homage to my love by using these art pieces as super sweet thank you notes, sharing the camper joy!

Award Ribbon Tutorial | Pugly Pixel
This is a great tutorial on how to make your own award ribbons in Photoshop, perfect for adding to photos in your blog. One of the best things is you can grab everything you need from the Pugly Pixel website, including the deco tape, the medallions and there are even links to get the (free!) fonts used in the tutorial! I love when a plan comes together. Though I know a lot of people (like meeee!) don’t actually have Photoshop so just for y’all Pugly Pixel has also provided pre-done ribbons for y’all!

Free Download: Once Upon A Baby Shower Invites | Martha Stewart
That’s right, the second baby themed post in two days! To be honest, the reason why I featured this is because the invites are designed by Rifle Paper Co. who I will definetly be going to for my wedding invites! It’s such a sweet themed party. I’ve heard of people having book themed showers before. Everyone brings a book (or books plural!) for the baby. Which I think is a great idea, especially for a first time mother, because you can guarantee that they will have everything they need within about a month of announcing she’s pregnant! Well, that’s what happened with my sister. Anyway, a child can never have enough books, and along with the beautiful book plates included in the download, it’s a special gift that they will always have.

Free Gift Tags, Bottle Markers, Cards & Gift Card Sleeves | Ex Boyfriend

There are so many cool free downloads at the Ex Boyfriend website, but I particularly love the beer labels that come in Cute Critters, Kawaii and Little Monster themes. Also the gift card sleeves are great for dressing up an otherwise visually unappealing gift!

Personal Library Kit (with free downloads) | Twig & Thistle
I am terrible at returning books. I’m pretty sure I still have my cousin’s copy of Tomorrow When The War Began (sorry Laura! Great series though, you should read it!) So instead of making this kit for myself, I feel like I need to make these up and give them to my friends and family so they can hassle me to return their books!

Mother’s Day Herb Garden Kit | Martha Stewart
This is meant to be for Mother’s Day but I personally would love to give/receive this any day of the year! I would love to be one of those people who use fresh herbs in their cooking (er, and actually be one of those people who cook!) If you got a pretty enough container, you could even have this on your kitchen window sill for quick herb-harvesting! I think I might do something like this for my sister for Christmas, I think she would love it!

Hand Drawn Cross Stitch | The Odessa May Society
This is such a good idea - and reminds me of that giant wall cross stitch I featured before. For those of you who love the look of cross stitch but have two left hands (the clumsy version of sewing?!) this is so easy and still gives the same effect. If you can draw crosses, you can make a hand drawn cross stitch! You could even use puffy paint to give the raised effect. I really want to try doing a large wall cross stitch, I think this feather would look great don’t you think?
