Links I'm Loving: Peter Rabbit birthday party, DIY Minnie Mouse tag toys, and more!

Hi everyone! I’m hoping that your back-to-school chaos is getting under control and that you’re ready to settle into fall! I’m a summer girl through-and-through, but I love fall too – especially the Halloween costumes, pretty leaves, and having everything on the internet turn to pumpkin. ; ) Until that happens, though, I’m hanging onto every last shred of summer that I can get!

A little shop news: I got on a little water label kick and listed lots of new designs: madras whalepink whale, sunshine party, balloons, camping, shark, and rubber ducky. I also shared a little peek at my office on Instagram (and my dog was only semi-reluctant to pose in the picture). And, here are the DIY projects, recipes, and other fun things that I’d like to share this week:

Shown above…
