Party Kits- Not Just for Parties

Have you been looking at our adorable printable party kits and thinking, "those are great, but I do not have a party coming up"?  Well, all of that cuteness is not reserved for just parties!  The kits have many elements that could be fun any day!  Coloring pages and paper-toys and dolls are perfect for play-time.  Little boxes and bags make great carries for "just because"" gifts.  Candy wrappers make any day a great day for something sweet, carry a few with you and practice random acts of sweetness!  Banners can add cheerfulness as room decor and draped over a window they can make a gray day more colorful.  Appetizer flags make cute oencil decorations, and thank you notes are good to have on hand because there are always things-to be grateful for.

All of this and since you own a digital copy, you have the whole kit ready when you do have a party!

Comfort and Joy!

What are two great gifts to give this holiday season?  Why, comfort and joy of course!

In honor of those two fabulous gifts, we have created two gifts for you.  First for comfort these "comfort and joy tags" - use a standard single hole punch and ribbon to tie one to a bottle of wine (comfort and joy, and for great wine gift ideas, ask Bobbie) a container of hot cocoa-mix, or perhaps something warm and comforting like a hand-knit scarf or mittens.  To help create joy, these 1 inch mint-candy circles- punch them out with a one inch punch (need one?  You can get one at a craft store like Micheal's, or you can order one here) you can even cut them out with scissors if you  like.  Scatter these little bit of joy everywhere, hang them from your tree, make a garland, toss them in the air like confetti, we do not mind, do whatever you wish, as long as it brings joy!

Some of you may be looking at these thinking...hey that is the Peppermint and Spearmint collection, and you would be right!  Bobbie an I are working on your fantastic party set as I type (Okay Bobbie is, I am typing).  We still do not have a winning theme set chosen, so if you have not voted yet, please do (click here for a quick trip to the choices), and get a FREE gift for voting!

To get your Comfort and Joy set, our gift to you, write to us at Want to talk to Bobbie or myself personally?  You can write to us at or

Let's make this blog-a-zine fun and interactive, share a post here about something that brings you comfort or joy or both!

Thank You
