Gifts for All the People in Your Life and How to Wrap Them

Can anyone tell that we are really in the Christmas spirit already? CAN IT JUST BE CHRISTMAS YET?! Okay, actually, no not really because that would mean I would need to be done with the one thousand things on my very long very extensive checklist, however, thanks to Tuesday Morning that checklist has become noticeably shorter. A few weeks back I found myself feeling that holiday rush, yes, I know a bit premature but this is what happens when you work in a field where you start every season 6-8 weeks early! Feeling the pressure I found myself wandering into Tuesday Morning for what I can only describe as the happiest shopping experiences.  (Click HERE to find the closes Tuesday Morning store to you!)

Amanda Jane Jones joins the Lars Print Shop!

We couldn’t be more thrilled to welcome graphic designer and author, Amanda Jane Jones to the Lars Print Shop! A few months back, Amanda was looking for a home for her new collection of prints that are inspired by her new book co-authored by her husband, Cree, Yum, Yummy, Yuck. I didn’t have to think twice about it. I knew that we wanted, no needed those beautiful prints of Amanda’s in our shop. So I reached out and awaited her response with butterflies in the tum tum. She got back to me, and as you may be able to tell the response was “Yes!” and so we set her shop in motion!

This is Amanda’s first line of illustrative prints and she is “over the moon excited with how they turned out” as are we! The pieces were designed with versatility in mind, they are fun and bright enough to be in a child’s room, but also bold and graphic enough to be on the mantle in your living room. They are the perfect pop of color for any room in the house! From children to adults these are fitting for everyone! Read on →

Printable Thanksgiving Table Activities

Happy hearts and full bellies is what we’re shooting for this Thanksgiving season. And man-o-man we think we have nailed it this year. Well, at least the happy hearts part that is (I’m relying on Paul for my family’s full bellies.)  Anyway, since I’m not contributing to the cooking (or ever will), I wanted to contribute to the festivities. So, we’ve come up with a set of table games to keep everyone occupied, from bored children, to hangry teens, to the honored elderly we think there is a little something for everyone in this line up to keep all satisfied until that tryptophan kicks in!

New in the shop: Christmas decorations

You may have seen our recent line of wrapping paper but have you have you seen our ornaments and holiday decor yet?! In case you can’t tell we are in the Christmas mindset here at Lars, sugar plums dancing in our heads and everything. So, it only made sense to embrace the Christmas feels instead of suppress them. And embrace we did! Starting with wrapping paper and leading up to so much more! Including these ornaments that we have decided would look lovely on each and every one of your Christmas trees (especially with that Lars wrapping paper underneath *wink* *wink*).

Christmas Home Advent Calendar

‘Twas the night before Christmas…Okay no not really, I know it’s not Christmas yet, but we are getting very excited for the Christmas season. The lights, the colors, the crafts what’s not to love?! However, one of the things I love most about Christmas is the spirit of excitement, glee, and giving that floats in the air. As we near the day that it becomes socially acceptable to countdown to Christmas the Lars team decided that we could use a little reminder to keep that true Christmas spirit around and help us not get caught in the snare of a commercialized Christmas. And thus 2019’s advent calendar was born. Read on →
