My Packaging Corner + Artifact Uprising

I’ve been slowly rearranging my studio space. It had gotten stale and I wanted to freshen it up a bit. In my home, the last thing to ever go up is wall art. My husband is the protector of our walls. Unless I’m absolutely 100% sure that I’m going to like any particular of wall art to hang in any particular place for more than a brief moment, then he’ll let me put a hole in the wall. If you artsy folks out there are anything like me, constantly shifting things, then you’ll say my husband is one smart man. I currently have 16 holes in my studio walls because I changed my mind and now I get my husband. Staring at those holes makes me cringe. The effort of having to spackle, texturize, prime, and paint sure is tedious. Good thing a set of fun prints from Artifact Uprising and some washi tape are easy to go up (zero stress here).

I teamed up with Artifact Uprising to bring you this post. And guess what? You can get your own set of 25 square prints FREE! Find out how at the bottom of this post!

Packaging things up, from Shop orders to gifts, is one of my all-time favorite things. There’s just something about paper that makes me happy. My packaging corner was looking rather shabby until Artifact Uprising sent me these prints. I quickly taped each square up on the wall with a random mix of washi tape for a quick feature wall that I find myself glancing over at a little too much. Is it okay to love your own IG photos that much? (insert one big sheepish grin)

I’ve decided to start a new hashtag project.

If you follow me over on Instagram, you most likely already know about this. I have a huge heart for gift wrap and everything that it entails, so to both inspire both you and myself, this project is going to come in handy. If you’ve been inspired by one of my gift wrap posts on my blog and wrapped something pretty as a result, or if you’re just proud of your latest gift wrap that’s not necessarily inspired by one of my posts, tag your photo #wrapitproject over on Instagram for a chance to get reposted on my Instagram account. Who here loves paper as much as I do (or maybe even more)?!

Moving Forward.

This week I’ve spent putting together lots of new items to put into the shop. I’m pretty excited about them! Some of them will be those long-promised items that I think I was planning on having available before Henry was born (it’s never too late, right?) and I can’t wait to show you. I just need to snap some photos of them and get them listed. Henry is turning one soon and is getting more and more independent. I’ve been waiting and waiting for the time when he’s more than happy to play without me so I could use that time to get more things done with the Shop and blog. I think that time has finally arrived! Let’s see how this goes!


On a personal note, remember when I mentioned Henry going through some major teething pain? Well, it turns out it was much more than that. The poor guy had a case of Roseola and a cold/flu following — all on top of his teething aches and pains. Knowing all this, I have a much higher appreciation for my little guy. Through all the suffering, he certainly was cranky, but not as cranky as one would expect. I know I certainly would have been much more cranky than him if I had all that tumble upon me at once. I’m happy to say that he’s been super chipper for a week now. Love seeing him back to his old self.
