It's been a busy couple of weeks with the SNAP Conference and then the Breathing Space Retreat. Thought I would share my business cards and roommate gifts for a little inspiration. They all had a little something to make them special.
I had standard business cards printed, but wanted something to make them pop. I decided it would be fun to do a clip that people could pull off to use as a bookmark. I found the talking bubble paper clips and they were perfect. Add a tiny ribbon and I had a card that was a little more me.
As for roommate gift, this was the first time I had done them. I was introduced to this concept just a few days before the conference so I had to put something together quick. I decided a conference survival kit would be great.
I put together all the things that are nice to have, but are often forgotten on the packing list: notebook, pen, mints, chapstick, and designer band-aids (for those rubbing shoes). Tie them up with baker's twine and you have a pretty cute gift.
The best part was one roommate mentioned she forgot her notebook, one said it would be nice to have mints, and one needed band-aids for her shoes! Yay for success!
Aren't these band-aids super cute?!
For the Breathing Space Blogger Retreat I wanted a roommate gift that went along with the theme of taking time for yourself and relaxing. I was thrilled to see a Lemon Sugar Scrub recipe on The Idea Room and knew it would be perfect! I used coconut oil instead of almond so it turns solid at 76 degrees and liquid at 77 degrees. Kinda fun!
I loved Amy's packaging, but I have a ton of baby food jars saved up for occasions like this so I spray painted the lids and stamped a little tag that says "When life gives you lemons.." I thought it was a fun play on words for lemon or shall we call it lemonade sugar scrub.
So that's all for now folks, but stay tuned for some tips and ideas I learned at Breathing Space! If you follow me on Instagram you got a preview of one already. ;)
