Christmas Mailing Labels and Gifted Magazine

Have you had a chance to check out Ez of Creature Comforts holiday magazine, Gifted, yet? I enjoyed every single page from cover to cover and even did a little happy dance when I saw the gorgeous free printables Ez has sprinkled throughout.

I loved the wrapping set from Paola Zakimi with her sweet christmasy illustrations so much that I used the christmas wrap to make some whimsical mailing labels for my holiday cards. What do you think, sweet right?

They were really easy if you would like to make some yourself. Just open the wrapping paper file (on page 71-72) in an editor like Photoshop and cut out a space for the address to go. Voila, you have added mailing labels to Paola's gorgeous wrapping suite.

You can have a flick through Gifted Magazine right here...

Have a lovely day everyone.

psst... I have free christmas mailing labels for you to print here!

Printable Christmas Lists in the New Toffee Magazine

I have some exciting news to share! These printable lists I designed have been published in the new online magazine Toffee.

Back in September, Nancy Alice Wood of Wolf and Willow contacted me to see if I would be interested in contributing to the Christmas printable section she was compiling for Toffee.

Believe it or not I already had christmas projects on the brain so I jumped at the chance and submitted 4 printable lists for holiday organisation. 8 weeks later, and here I am pictured as a contributer to the brand new Toffee Magazine!

Yep thats me, third on the right :)

If you download the magazine you will be able to print my lists for managing To-Do's, Shopping Lists, Christmas Cards and Gift Planning as many times as you like!

Toffee Magazine is just $2.99 which is really reasonable considering you get 102 pages packed with great interviews, crafty book reviews, recipes, crafts, printables, a whole bunch of ideas for making your own beauty lotions and potions and more. You will also receive a selection of patterned digital papers for scrapbooking and craft projects which are gorgeous.

You Can Buy Issue 1 of Toffee Magazine Here!

Speak to you soon friends!

Free Printable Minimega Advent Calendar

As the 1st November is here I thought it might be a good time to start thinking about all those christmas projects we've been promising ourselves we will get round to this year.

To kick things off I though it would be great to start work on an advent calendar so come December we will be ready to start counting down the days to Christmas! I have had this Minimega printable bookmarked for months so I am really happy I can finally share it with you here now.

Aren't these polar bears the sweetest, I love that they all have different coloured cheeks :D

The best thing about this printable is that it's really versatile so you can make your advent calendar as simple or as elaborate as you wish. I am thinking of stringing them all up to make a chain of polar bears and taping chocolate coins to the backs, but seriously, the possibilities are endless so get your thinking cap on.

Why not use the advent bears to decorate the free Minimega paper cups and fill with treats or you could
cut 12 small envelopes in half and stick them to a large sheet of card to create 24 pockets. Stick your advent bears to each pocket and leave notes, pictures, jokes, activities or treats in each one.

I would love to hear your ideas too so add them in the comments section below. Have a lovely day friends!
