donut_party_4

I have been having a whole heaps of fun designing and creating using Avery – Celebrate with Avery printables. I have created a donut party from the printable invitations, circle stickers to use as seals, on milk bottles and even to stick on the wall*, and lolly bag labels. These are my fav as they come with the cello bag and all you have to do is peel and stick and it looks so professional! ha! You can purchase this whole set as files over at my Etsy store here $20AUD will get you double sides DIY invitations , with 3 different sprinkle backs, a sticker set with 3 different donut designs, 3 sprinkle designs and a mixed donut design, and a set of 4 different coloured sprinkle lolly bags (pink, choc, mint & lavender).
I am giving away free here a version of those lolly bags as a printable in just pink and choc.

The great thing with printables is that you can print as many as you like and they dont need to be used just for parties, use them as gifts as decorations, endless possibilities!

So get baking and give out some treats! Download your free printable here MuskaElvis_Donut_PartyBag_FreePrintable

MERRY CHRISTMAS FROM MUSKA & ELVIS

24 Dec

WOW! This year has flown by, I really have no idea where it went! I’m sorry that I haven’t posted much this year, to be honest Muska & Elvis got really busy in the past 6 months and I’ve been really trying to balance everything out, and unfortunately here got left a little behind. Although I aim to get back on it next year with lots of goodness, in the meantime you can always find me on my Instagram & Facebook account.

I hope that you all have a Fab Christmas, and a brilliant New Year ahead! Take it e-e-easy and take care!

Printable Christmas Cookie/Candy Labels & Gift Tags towards the Salvation Army Christmas Appeal

25 Nov

Let your giving go that little bit further this year. Do you remember my HO HO HO Christmas cookie bag labels I designed last year, that I used to package small gifts of choc dipped pretzels with sprinkles? Well they are now a printable and available in my Etsy store for $5.00AUD along with matching gift tags. You can print as many as you like and 100% of purchases will be donated to the Australian NSW Salvation Army Christmas Appeal. These are perfect for that little home baked gift to give out to friends and family and also make the perfect teacher gift, school or kindy gift, that the kids can get in on to help make. Doesn’t have to be pretzels, I’m thinking Gingerbread or Biscotti again this year…..

The link to the listing is here, and to find out more about the Christmas appeal and how you can get involved even more, click here xx

Ps. I bought these awesome polka dot cello bags from the dollar store $2 for 20, you can find lots of different ones to add even more fun to your gift!

Pps. In the download there are guides where to punch to thread the ribbon, but there is also a template without guides for those of you who want to use label only and no ribbon.

Santa is coming to town!

24 Nov

WOW! I am so sorry for my lack of posts! I have to say that Muska & Elvis has been very busy and keeping me on my toes, as well as trying to find a balance looking after and spending time with my tiny’s, the Mister and friends and family, and just your everyday everything, it.is.challenging. So unfortunately to keep up my blog has suffered, but to make it up to you I have some fab FREE Christmas downloads available over the next few weeks. To start I have these super fun Santa letters! You know Santa likes the finer things in life too, and he likes to receive something cool everything now and then too. So I have designed 4 different designs to cater for every child (I hope) traditional, the non-traditional, and the ever so popular monochromatic child, and incase you have 4 or more children, they can all choose their own letter! I have made them super easy, no bleed, just easy to use crop guides for you to cut. There are 2 letters per A4 sheet. Print borderless A4 if you can from your printer (no problem if you can’t print border less it will still fit. Print at 100% scale, landscape orientation. You can print off as many as these babies as you like.

Keep your eyes out, I will have some gift tag downloads coming soon! xx

Letters to my children

21 May

Hero

Especially now that I have children of my own, my parents are constantly telling me stories about how I was when I was younger, and what they used to think and do, and how they felt during certain moments in my life. When Lil M was born I had so much to tell her, there was so much I wanted her to know right there and then, but she won’t ever know or understand what I am saying. I knew there would be so much I would want to share with her and I wanted her to know my feelings of her in real time. So I designed a letterhead just for her and kept an empty letter in an envelope in my hospital bag, so I could write her a letter telling her exactly how it felt to meet her, no details missing to my memory. Then I realised I would always have so much to say, so I printed out more, and every now and then I sit down to pen a letter to my little darling. Of course I have continued this with the birth of Mr Lil M. I put each one in an envelope and date them and keep them in a box along with all the cards and notes we have given her so far, even Christmas tags from her first Christmas.

I tell her how much she amazes us with her curiosity and determination to learn and to soak up the world around her, how much of a little adrenaline seeker she is, which I love, but scares me at the same time, but I know I have to let her explore, and that she will get her own bumps and scratches along the way, that she is such a funny little entertainer, with such a huge personality, always trying to make us laugh, and that she loves to dance (love is an understatement, especially if Pharrell’s Happy comes on) and how kind and nurturing she is (her toys get the most kisses in the house), I also tell her how she can also be so naughty, but that at the same time it can be so funny when she chucks a tanty and that she is so brilliant at ‘fake’ crying and peeking through her hands to see if we are watching (how does a 2 year old know how to do these things?!), and that we have to hide or turn around to hide our laughter. Or that time I had to carry her under my arm to the car whilst kicking and screaming, whilst pushing Mr Lil M in the pram to the car, because she didn’t want to leave and wanted to hang out with a weird and freaky looking doll (from my point of view, any real life looking baby doll freaks me out!) from a playgroup. Or how recently she has heard me say the ‘F’ word once which I rarely ever say, and now she has been using it in a Monster voice tone whenever she drops something, and now I’m in damage control to get her back to saying Oh no! (it’s slowly working if you are interested, and I’m constantly ‘dropping’ things in her presence saying ‘Oh no!’)

Mr Lil M, so far only has one letter, but his next one I’ll be sure to tell him that he doesn’t give me much sleep lately, but that on the upside it means I get sneaky warm cuddles while everyone is sleeping, that when he smiles my heart absolutely melts, and that I wonder whoever else’s heart he may melt in the future, and that he loves really long ‘chats’ with Daddy, and that his sister absolutely well and truly adores him and thinks it’s the funniest when he ‘does big fart’ or ‘big burp’.

To be honest I had not opened the box for a while properly, I’ve only put things in it, until this morning to take some pictures for his post, and so many gorgeous moments came flooding back to me, even just my eye catching Lil M’s hospital band when she was born made me feel so elated, I am so happy to have this box not just for my children (who I will give them their boxes and contents at a very later stage to keep, in the mean time I can’t wait to read them the letters or let them read them, once they are much older, enough to understand and to appreciate the moments shared – maybe when they are 18 or 21? Who knows, I’ll know when) but also for me and the Mister to go back in time a little, as time is moving far too quickly for our liking.

Don’t think that it is too late to start either, I think that any memory you can hold onto is one to be cherished. x

I actually picked this box up at one of my fav secondhand markets straight of the bat, it’s part of 3 that nest together, as Lil M’s collection grew I needed a bigger box and this was perfect and now I also have another the same for Mr Lil M.
