Wrapping Paper from Zazzle

Wrap it up! Under my tree this holiday season…

Hello, my name is Danielle, and I hoard wrapping paper.Wrapping Paper from Zazzle

I bet you thought I was going to say FABRIC! Well, that too, but I really love wrapping paper almost as much. All things paper, really. The colors, the designs, the way you can make something that is blah look so beautiful with something as simple as paper…

You know how much I love gifting and wrapping presents, so Christmas presents (see what I did there?) a wonderful opportunity for me to get my creative on every year. This year in particular is going to be sweet because of the greatest find ever — wrapping paper on ZAZZLE!

Oh yeah – my favorite customization shoppe has an enormous collection of designs, some you can even personalize before you order! And we are talking all kinds of color here, not just your everyday normal red and green (though they have that too!). The quality is great, it’s very easy to fold. You can get rolls in different sizes, and you can select a matte or glossy option (I myself am a matte girl).

Here are some of my favorites — I went with some non-traditional color schemes and designs.

I’m really loving all things Navy right now, especially with white and gold…. Wrapping Paper from Zazzle

Be Cool for School with Zazzle

Be Cool for School with Zazzle

Be Cool for School with ZazzleIt’s that time of year when everyone scrambles to get their supplies and clothes and hair-dos just right for going back to school. I love it! Even though I’m not in school anymore (HA! Been a LONG time), I still honor the annual tradition of buying new clothes in the fall — much to my husband’s delight, as you can imagine. πŸ™‚

But now that I have my own kiddos and nephews and nieces, I get to relive the Back to School traditions through them — and you KNOW I have to make sure they have all the cool stuff, right? Right.

That’s where Zazzle comes in to play. So much cool stuff. And the best part is a lot of it can be completely customized and personalized, so your little one will never mistake someone else’s lunchbox for his own, and your eldest won’t lose his gym bag amongst the piles of others in the locker room.

zazzle back to schoolAnd the clothes — who knew Zazzle had such a cool collection of duds for the school set to dress and impress! Here are a few products I wanted to share with you so that your kids can be cool for school, too – just click on the image to get to my Back to School favorites!

Be sure to take advantage of the SALES by going to Zazzle’s offer page and grabbing yourself a coupon code before you shop!

I love the idea of personalized Binders and Notebooks — they are cool AND you know their yours, right? Since everyone shows up with the same ones from the same local stores, your kids should stand out with their own unique supplies!

Cool Dude Binder

This binder can be customized with any text, so you can put a name on it, or a subject and have different ones for each class… AND you can pick from several colors!

pinkbinder

I also made one with a girly font – because I’m just girly like that and I think there are others like me out there..

Chalkboard Notebook

Same with this notebook – it’s a good size for taking notes and can be customized in the same manner with any name or subject! You can find the less girly one here.

And now for some #rad and #awesome back to school shirts!

These dudes are ROCKING their Zazzle shirts – are they not totally #rad and #awesome?

The 3/4 sleeve raglan is my favorite shirt for fall, and comes in a variety of sleeve colors.

Boys especially love their T-Shirts and this one in particular will go over well with all the dudes out there. It comes in a variety of colors as well.

sports gym bag

Sports are always in style – and your kids will be too, with these custom gym bags I designed featuring a variety of sports balls, and an athletic font that can be customized with any name. The bag comes in several colors!

Dry Erase Letter Practice Board

For the little little ones, I created this letter practice wipe-off board for hours and hours of quiet time fun. My little one loves to practice his writing, and marvels at the concept of a dry erase board. Hey – he’s only 3!

lunchbox

I ADORE these lunch boxes – there are so many cute designs available, and I love the little containers inside. Perfect for little ones and big ones alike!

Technology is just a fact of life these days — and kids are surpassing their parents’ knowledge at a very young age! Keep their tablets protected with a super cool case like this one here!

Gifts for Dad – The Grill Master

Bye Bye, May and Hello June! Summer is coming and so is Father’s Day, which means it’s time to start looking for some great gifts for Dad. What better gifts to give YOUR Grill Master than these personalized BBQ accessories I found on Zazzle — which, by the way, are on SALE, RIGHT NOW!

My husband, the father of my children, believes himself to be an expert when it comes to the art of grilling, and has therefore dubbed himself The Grill Master. Well, a Grill Master needs an apron like a King needs a crown – it’s a necessity. I love the style of this one, very bold but still classy, and you can put whatever name you want at the top.

Gifts for Dad - BBQ Apron from Zazzle

It is very well made – a nice thick canvas fabric to hold up to his grilling shenanigans.. which usually involves the dog jumping on him at some point, and at least one shout of, “FIRE IN THE HOLE!”

Does your Grill Master have a secret sauce? Mine does – or so he says! It IS a bit of a mystery, I’ve never actually watched him to see what he puts in it, but it usually tastes pretty darn good. It could very well be just a regular jar of BBQ sauce. But I like it, the kids like it, and that’s all that really matters.

Gifts for Dad - BBQ Sauce Bowl from Zazzle

I thought a special bowl just for his top secret sauce would make him smile, so I designed this one with him in mind. This is customizable too, you can change “Dad” to any name! It’s actually a chili bowl, but I thought it would be better than a regular bowl since it has the cool little finger handle. πŸ™‚

Every time MY husband gets his grill on he comes running in to the house in a panic at some point, saying “I NEED A PLATE!” and I scramble to find him one that he can’t destroy. Paper plates are too flimsy and I’m terrified he’ll break one of my ceramic plates — not that losing the plate is a big deal, it’s the shards all over the ground for a blind dog and a 1 year old to walk on that scare me..

Gifts for Dad - BBQ Plate from Zazzle

…well now he can have his very own plate, and a towel to match. A very classy design on both with his initials; the plate is melamine so it can take a beating (no shards!)…

Gifts for Dad - BBQ Towel from Zazzle

..and the towel is absorbent enough to handle his messes! I like the black towel, it will hide any stains that are sure to come from his secret sauce, and it looks great on the grill.

Our Grill Master just got a new grill, so I think these gifts will be a big hit! Don’t tell him I used it as a prop for my photo shoot.Β  πŸ˜‰

Forever Young - Bob Dylan Lyrics - Free Printable

Forever Young by Bob Dylan – Free Printable!

Forever Young Lyrics - Free PrintableI’ve been sitting on this post  for a while – – I meant to post this a loooong time ago! My super cool cousin-in-law contacted me last year about making some nursery art for our other cousin-in-law who was pregnant with her first child.

They love Bob Dylan (baby was aptly named Dylan, by the way), and this song in particular, so she thought it would be a great idea to print out the lyrics for their nursery. I agreed! I thought it was so great, in fact, that I did the same for Vaughn’s nursery…which I haven’t shown you yet… because it’s still in progress… because I’m lazy  I’ve been busy.

Forever Young Lyrics - Free Printable

The lyrics speak to everyone, especially little boys and girls and they totally make me tear up every time I read them. The song itself is beautiful too, you can hear it here. There is another more recent version that is awesome too, by Rhiannon Giddens and Iron & Wine (love), which you can listen to here.

Forever Young Lyrics - Free Printable

While we thought this would be great for a nursery, its perfect for any little’s bedroom or playroom, or heck, put it in the family room!

Children's Art Gallery

Children’s Art Gallery

Children's Art GalleryYour child brings home an amazing work of art, so of course you need to hang it up — put it on display for everyone to ooooh and ahhhh at, and to show everyone how proud you are of your little Picasso (and it gives your little ones all the feels). So on the fridge it goes…. but really, your little artiste deserves so much more! So why not create a gallery just for the kiddos?

This is a super simple project for even the not-so-handy, and of course you can personalize or change it up however you want — I’m just giving you the basic idea to get started if you want to make your own.

I chose a wall in the kids’ playroom to do this, where I had the space and where the pieces of art would fit right in with the “decor.”

I found a banner that was double sided, with some funky colors and patterns on one side, and a chalkboard surface on the other.Β It came with some great twine, but you can always find your own in any color. Children's Art Gallery

You could also make your own bunting using scrapbook paper, use or not use the chalk feature, purchase or print letters on your own, etc. The sky is the limit on this one. Children's Art GalleryI wrote “A”, “R”, and “T” out on the three of the pennants, and strung the twine through the holes. (If you’re using scrapbook paper, you’ll need a hole punch).Children's Art Gallery

To hang up the banner I just used push pins. πŸ™‚pushpins

For the artwork hangers, I found a bag of these cool chalkboard clothespins and decided to take the extra pennants from the banner I wasn’t using and cut out a shape to stick them to. clothespins3

I used my good old standby, the sticky dots. Children's Art Gallery

On the back of that stack I used a mounting square and stuck it to the wall. They come off easily, and leave no marks. πŸ˜‰ wallmounts3

Cute, right?Children's Art Gallery

My son’s Montessori school does the most beautiful art projects and he is always SO excited to bring a new one home and hang it up in the gallery. When it’s time to retire one, I take a picture of it with my phone and upload it to artkive — this great app that lets you create hardcover books of your kid’s artwork!

The Stickel Art Gallery… featuring the works of Logan G. Stickel.

Children's Art Gallery

Do you have an art gallery or wall for your kiddo’s masterpieces? I would love for you to share them with me!

Until next time!

xoxo, D
