Hello friends. Friday is here. I hope you’re as excited about it as I am.

Today, in honour of Father’s Day (this Sunday for our international friends – not Australia) I’m sharing my favourite Dad’s day cards. There are even a few digital downloads in the list for anyone who is still cardless. Enjoy and have a great weekend!

Pretty Paper Things for Dads

Yay it’s Friday! How has your week been? Mine has been ok – too much cleaning (rent inspection -blurrrgghh) and not enough working. It’s getting colder too, which reminds me, I really need to drag out my heater from wherever I shoved it at the start of summer. Chilly mornings are not fun!

So…I shared my first Father’s Day round-up of cards for our international friends the other day. This got me thinking, I wonder what pretty paper related things Dads might like?

1. Glass Knot Paperweights from West Elm.
2. Porsche Design Aluminum Ballpoint Pen – Anthracite from Notemaker.
3. The Mini Black Book by Russell & Hazel.
4. Dad Memory Book and Case by kikki.K.
5. Defy Bags Aesthetic Leather Mini iPad Mini Sleeve from Notemaker.

(btw Australia, New Zealand, Fiji and Papua New Guinea celebrate Father’s Day the first Sunday in September so be prepared for more Dad celebrating later on in the year!)

Time for an Easter Egg hunt!

Guys I am so excited to be hosting this year’s Easter Egg hunt. I’ve been scoping out potential hiding spots in the garden and let me tell you my nieces are going to be searching forever (they’ve had it too easy with the hunt being at my sisters for years. They know all the good hiding spots!) It’s going to be so much fun.

What are you doing for Easter? Do you have a hunt planned?

1. Tiny Tiara Party Shop.
2. Celebration Shoppe.

4. Festiva Party Design.
5. Amandas Parties To Go.
