new matching games in shop {and a sale}

Our custom matching game continues to be one of burlap+blue’s bestselling items, and I love, love, love all the cool ways you all have used this over the years–everything from a school auction item (featuring all the kids in the class), to a birthday gift for a grandparent (it was a double-sized game with all the grandkids featured so they could play when together). To celebrate this fun wooden toy, we’ve recently added a few new variations to the shop! Take a peek at what we’ve been up to, and take $5 off any matching game with code “fiveoff” through midnight!

We have several limited edition games available for purchase–these feature fun, colorful backings and are limited in number…

free printable {good enough is the new perfect}

Today’s free printable is also the title of a I-can’t-wait-to-read book by Becky Gillespie, and reminds us that perfection is over-rated, and, to paraphrase one of my favorite mantras-”don’t let perfect be the enemy of good.” Sometimes, good enough is more than enough, and this printable is a good reminder of that…enjoy!

7 simple fall mantles

My thoughts lately have been turning to my (much neglected) mantle, and I’ve been on the lookout for inspiration for gussying it up for Fall. Personally, I’m over over-decorated, complex mantle decor….that’s just not going to work for me at this stage of life (read: young kids and little free time). Instead, I’m leaning towards simple, layered mantles that aren’t too fussy. I’ve gathered a few of my favorite simple mantles that have inspired me lately (hopefully they’ll inspire you, too).
