Paper Crafts, Dessert, and Thursday Favorite Things #403

Welcome to another Thursday Favorite Things Link Party.  I'm so glad you've joined us.

You know that saying, "Life is hard--Eat dessert first" ?   Well, let's just say I've eaten more than my fair share of desserts this week. Without going into detail, it's been a hard week, and my heart is sore, so I'm glad to be here today in this happy place to see what you have to share with us.

Just a reminder, please leave a comment with your link number, and please pin from the original sources. Thanks!

Here are my features from last week's party:


When I first saw this paper cut leaf from Simple Joys, I thought it was a die cut. No, it's cut by hand!  Beautiful.


Canon Ivy Mini-Printer Review

I take a lot of pictures with my phone. (Well, I guess almost everyone takes a lot of pictures with their phones.)  Occasionally, I upload those to my desktop. (But honestly, I don't do that very often.)

Given my current obsession with traveler's notebooks and journaling, a mini photo printer seemed like a no-brainer for me.  I wanted to be able to print off a quick little picture to stick in my journal, without the uploading, the resizing, etc. Just a speedy little photo.

So, when I saw all of the cute mini-printers on the market, and I had a little gifted cash, I was ready to shop.

This post contains affiliate links, which means I will earn a small commission if you purchase through them, at no extra cost to you.

I bought this one, the Canon Ivy Mini Photo Printer.  (Mine is the rose gold, but they have mint green and slate gray too.)  The photos are 2x3, with a peel and stick backing.

I'm so happy with it!




Thursday Favorite Things #402

Welcome to another Thursday Favorite Things link party!

I want to thank so many of you for the kind words of support for our Sunny dog (who we recently found out is in kidney failure.)  I have to say, Sunny wears kidney failure well, as she is as lively as a puppy and is now showing no signs of illness.  Our vet said that some dogs with kidney failure go downhill quickly, while some live for quite some time. We're counting on the second scenario!

(I have two crochet featuers this week. Can you tell I want to pick this hobby up again?  Somehow, I need to work that into my life!)


Isn't this card, from Linda at Paper Seedlings, beautiful?  Who wouldn't love receiving this in the mail?



Thursday Favorite Things #401

I'm so glad you're here for another Thursday Favorite Things link party!

Schools are starting, and we're into the second week of August, and I have no idea how that happened.  I have no little ones going back to school, but I still do my share of "back to school" shopping, snagging the bargains on the binders, pens, etc.  Do you do that?

Here are my features from last week's party:


Look at this tiny beach house watercolor from Mel at Decor Craft Design!  This is my dream. If I could choose anywhere to live, it would be right there in that little beach house by the sea.


Make a Journal from Half a Composition Notebook

I have a project for you that might make a nice gift (for you or someone else!)

You know those composition notebooks that are everywhere at back to school time?  (They always have them at the dollar store too, but during back to school they are cheap at the discount stores.)

Years ago, I discovered that you can have them cut in half at most office supplies stores, for next to nothing.  You then have two notebooks for the price of one. Plus, they're such a cute size.

When decorated, these make really cute gifts.  I think a tween or teen would love this fun gratitude journal.

These would also make great planners, list books, recipe books, travel journals, baby journals, etc. (For example, you could use a vintage map or map scrapbook paper to make a travel journal, fun cooking related paper to make a recipe book, etc.  Or use plain cardstock -kraft colored, black, white, etc.-, and stamp the designs, handletter, etc.)

Welcome to the Thursday Favorite Things link party.  I can't wait to see what you have to share today!

I've been a bit "sickish" over the last few days, so I'm sorry to say I have no features today from last week's party.  So be sure to head over to the other co-hostesses' blogs today and see what features they chose!  I'm sure I'll be up to speed next week.

After you link today, please remember to leave a comment with your link number. Also, please pin from the original blogs.  Thanks!
