Let the Halloween posts continue…

I love Avery. They make things so simple if I ever need labels. And because I love handwriting my own labels, it’s basically a match made in heaven. I was excited to see that Avery had Printable Bag Toppers with Bags, and I immediately thought it would make great for Halloween (yup, for more treats…I have a serious sweet tooth problem). And this pack made it easy as pie, because it actually came with the bags.

You can quickly and simply download the Avery template for these bag toppers (Microsoft Word, Adobe Illustrator, Adobe Photoshop, or with Adobe InDesign) and create your own design…

OR

You can download these printable bag toppers that I’ve created right here. Something super simple yet fun, right? Simply purchase the Printable Bag Toppers with Bags (#22801) online or at any office supply store (i.e. Staples, etc.) and download + print these already-made designs right on the supplied sticky labels!

Ok, so it just so happened that I have two Halloween posts in a row going up around the Interwebs. Whoops. I didn’t plan it, but don’t things always end up working out like that? Don’t kill me. If you haven’t already noticed, “Trick-or-treat” is my Halloween motto. Maybe because I haven’t done actual trick-or-treating in years (the kid in me certainly misses it), but isn’t it just a fun Halloween phrase? I basically go around greeting everyone I know with “Trick-or-treat!” on Halloween, whether I get candy out of it or not. I guess it also sounds better than yelling “Boo!” at them.

Ramblings aside, are you hosting a Halloween party/gathering/dinner/trick-or-treat-fest this year? If so, tell all your friends about it with these printable invites I’ve created over at West Elm’s blog, Front + Main! I’ve also created this desktop wallpaper to get your workspace and/or phone in the spirit of this cavity-filled holiday.

All downloads available on Front + Main!

Yay! Let’s make our Tech-y stuff happy! Audrey and I introduced our “Happy Tech” series last month, and we’re excited to continue on this lovely wallpaper makeover journey. Audrey created the beautiful floral wreath, and seriously…how amazing?!

The longer I’ve been part of this online creative community, the more I want and need to stay true to myself. It’s hard not to compare yourself to others, especially when there are so many other talented designers and creatives who specialize in the very thing you do. And believe me, it’s brought discouragement to me on more than one occasion. But the best thing you can do is to stay true to what you love and not only what you do, but how you do it. You are amazing! Be inspired by others and make it your own.

“Be yourself. Everyone else is taken.”
