IN MY TOOLBOX / DYMO LABEL MAKER

I love office supplies and I really miss perusing the aisles of our local office supply stores back in the States. So many of my essential craft supplies are actually office supplies, like my beloved Dymo label makers. Did you know Dymo introduced their personal and office label makers back in 1958? In the 1990s the company invented electronic label makers and the rest is history.

I had a electronic label maker for years and used it religiously to label all sorts of things in my studio. But before our move to Korea almost two years ago I make a drastic purge of my studio and our home. I realized I hadn't used the electronic label maker in years and decided to give it to my friend who is a teacher. But I did pack our two trusty Dymo label makers since the boys and I love to use them. Once we moved to Korea I added a third Dymo label maker to our collection (the font is slightly different, which of course was my justification for the purchase).

THE TWELVE DAYS OF HOLIDAY PACKAGES NO.1 

I had so much fun designing packaging ideas for The Twelve Days of Holiday Packages. I hope you find some inspiration and incorporate some of the ideas in to your own holiday packaging. Package No.1 was inspired by a walk I took with my boys. We found a sidewalk sprinkled with gold gingko leaves and my boys wanted to collect leaves and dry and press them at home. After several days underneath some of my heaviest books we had beautiful flat gingko leaves in the perfect shade of yellow. For this packaging project you can incorporate any type of leaf, just take a walk around the block and see what you find!

THE TWELVE DAYS OF HOLIDAY PACKAGES

I adore packaging gifts and since it is officially the month of gift-giving I thought I would share some gift wrapping ideas and projects. The Twelve Days of Holiday Packages will provide you with inspiration to create your own handmade packages. I will also be sharing some of my favorite sources for packaging supplies. Stay tuned for the first packaging project tomorrow. In the meantime see more of my packaging projects here.

[MAKE] THANKSGIVING MINI CARDS

 

Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays because it is all about family and food, some of my favorite things in life. And although we are celebrating Thanksgiving here in Busan, where it is a regular day for most of the country, it still feels like a special day. I love that Thanksgiving is about gratitude and reflecting on the many things we are thankful for in our lives.

As we raise our boys Appah and I want them to have hearts of gratitude. Three years ago we made a "Thanksgiving tree" and even though I no longer have the tree, I still have the "leaves". It is fun to look back on the things they were grateful for when they were 5 and 7 years old. 

This year I thought it would be nice to jot down things we are thankful for so I designed some mini cards which you can slip inside a mini envelope and give it to a family member or friend. You can also clip them together or place them in an album to remember the things you were grateful for in 2013.

Most of all I think jotting down what we are thankful for is a wonderful exercise in experiencing gratitude. I hope you and your loved ones have a gratitude-filled Thanksgiving (and may it also involve lots of turkey and pie)!
