The Best Wedding Gift: A Wedding Time Capsule

The Best Wedding Gift: A Time Capsule that you can purchase or get the printable files and create it yourself! The couple answers 40 questions each and seals it for their 5 year anniversary. Such a cute and thoughtful wedding gift!

Wedding season has arrived and it reminded me that I had this special project I wanted to share with you guys! In my opinion, this is one of the best wedding gifts you can give to someone, but it was not a gift we received. Rather, this Wedding Time Capsule was a little project we did ourselves.

5 years ago we started planning our month-long trip to Thailand, and as soon as we knew we’d be taking it, I decided to make a time capsule that we’d seal for 5 years and then open on our trip. We took 100 notecards, wrote down 50 questions each, and then spent a few nights sipping cocktails and answering all the questions.

When we were done, we sealed the box up tightly with washi tape and stored the Wedding Time Capsule for 5 years. It came with us to Thailand and we had so much fun reading the cards throughout our trip! Rather than rushing through them at once, we’d just grab a few each night. It led to great conversation, lots of memories, and a good deal of laughter. When we finally got to the end of the trip we decided we needed to take the time to put together an “anniversary set” so we’d have another time capsule to open on our 10 year anniversary.

This simple wedding time capsule project brought us so much joy, and yet wasn’t expensive and wasn’t difficult to do. I realized that it’s a gift that every married couple should have, and so I set out to put it into a printable form that you could make yourself. It doesn’t have to be a gift, you could make it for yourself, and it doesn’t have to be for your 5 and 10 year anniversary. Adjust it to your timeline or whatever works for where you are at in your marriage or relationship right now. The files are not gender specific, because love is love and this gift is for couples of any size, shape or orientation.

Below you’ll find a link to a ready-made set that you can purchase in my Etsy Shop for $35 and get shipped direct to you…or directions and all the files you’ll need to Do It Yourself are below! I hope this brings you as much joy and happiness as it brought us!

Visualize an Incredible Day

Take Time to Visualize an Incredible Day | free printable file from Thyme is Honey

Lately I’ve been starting my mornings with the HEALERS podcast from Beauty Bets. She has one of the best “podcast voices” I’ve heard (I could probably listen to her discuss socks) but I also love her podcast because she dives into topics you probably aren’t thinking or talking about. Last week I listed to one about colonics. I’ve listened to one about her favorite psychic medium. There’s a great one about astrology. Definitely not my usual scene.

But spending an hour each day listening to these woo-woo topics on life and love has opened me up a bit to the potential benefits of living a life that is more intentional and more focused on the type of energy you are putting out into the universe. Does the energy we put out come back to us? Does it influence our lives? The book, The Secret (which I just started this weekend), would argue that indeed, what we are putting out there matters.

And so with that I say: take a moment this morning to visualize an incredible day. Take a moment to think about what you want to materialize over the next 24 hours. Think happy thoughts, my friends, and if you need a constant reminder for this practice you can get this print to hang in your home or office.

Don’t Be Fooled by the Calendar

Free printable design! "Don't Be Fooled by the Calendar. There are only as many days in the year as you make use of." | Thyme is Honey

Yesterday on Instagram I announced that this spring I’ll be collaborating with The Mint Academy to launch an online course! I’ve been totally flattered by the success of my in-person classes and am excited to be able to offer an online option for those of you who aren’t local! We’ll be taping it next week and the course will launch later this spring. More info coming soon!

Prepping for the course along with a lot of exciting life developments (announcements coming soon!), and exciting client projects (did you see W3LL PEOPLE launched with Target!?) has had me working long days and long weeks. Making the most of each day has been vital as of late, and I love having this print hanging in my office as a reminder to prioritize, plan and enjoy.

Want one for yourself? Just enter your info below and the next page will have the pdf file which you can instantly download!

Printable Valentine’s Day Cards

Free Printable Valentine's Day Card 2017 | get one for your husband, wife, mom. dad, brother, sister etc.

Well Valentine’s Day sure did sneak right up on us! I love to hook you up with free printables, and this year’s version has a bit of political snark, which I think should help get your Valentine’s Day off to a romantic start, eh? Nothing says let’s get it on quite like a little foreign policy and national divide!

The inside is blank, but I recommend adding a sexy little love note. Perhaps something along the lines of:

“My love for you is so yuuuge! I’ve donated $10 (or $25, $50 or $1000) to ________________________ in your honor!”

Fill in the blank with a charity of your choice. Some of my suggestions would be the ACLU, She Should Run, The Hot Bread Kitchen or Fetch Wisconsin Rescue (the rescue group I volunteer with)!

I’ve created versions for your husband, wife, boyfriend, girlfriend, daughter, son, mom, dad, grandma, grandpa, sister, brother, aunt, uncle, mother-in-law, father-in-law, partner, step-mom, step-dad, co-worker, partner, boss and best friend! Simply enter your information into the form below and the next page will give you access to all the available designs! Happy Valentine’s Day, happy printing, happy resisting!

Not Everyone is Living

"Everyone is dying, but not Everyone is Living." - Free Printable Download Design by Thyme is Honey

Last week I gave my office a little facelift. Wasn’t any major overhaul, I was just feeling like I needed some fresh elements to keep me inspired. I had recently purchased a cool green vintage chair that I wanted to add to my office, so I bought this cute accent table from Target to go with it, then replaced the prints in all the frames in my office as well as hung up my 2017 Printable Calendar (get yours right here). I had been writing down quotes that I wanted framed in my office to help inspire me every day, so I finally made time to design prints for each one and I’ll be sharing them here in the coming weeks.

Everyone is dying, but not everyone is living is something I try to keep in mind each day. What are the things that truly make you feel alive and make you grateful for your time here on planet earth? I try to keep those things in mind throughout my day as a reminder of why I do what I do.
