Are you pro New Years Resolutions or against them? Either way, this printable was created with YOU in mind! You can use it for setting self-improvement goals or perhaps you’d like to treat it as more of a bucket list for the year! Different strokes for different folks. Whatever your personality is, we can all commit to making 2019 an awesome year.
We revamped our book art illustrated by Libby VanderPloeg (which you guys went CRAZY over) to create this printable in hopes that you’ll set some super resolutions for next year. I wrote mine down for your viewing pleasure, so show me yours! Tag @houselarsbuilt on Instagram and include #LivingLargeWithLars. What are your hopes, dreams, aspirations, for the new year? As you know, we’re all about making dreams come true at Lars 😉

Can you believe it’s halfway through October, readers? Has Bram Stoker’s Dracula put a bit of classic spookiness into your fall season? 🙂 We’ve got a few questions for you below, as well as some other classic creepy stories you might want to add to your list of October reads! This month’s amazing artwork was illustrated by Yas Imamura of Quill & Fox. It’s a little bit dark and spooky and I love it! If you’re unfamiliar with her work, be sure to check her out!
The moment I found out I was pregnant I started searching for a place to create a baby registry. Ha! How’s that for wasting no time! Clearly, I was pretty stoked. For me, a registry was less about asking friends for gifts (because how uncomfortable is that?!) and more about gathering all the products for baby in one central location in order to provide friends and family a quick and easy way to locate helpful gifts. These days I’m all about saving time for everyone! Time efficiency is my love language.
After doing some snooping around on the webs, I realized that I didn’t want a registry from just one shop because it’s too limiting and I didn’t like the idea of registering at many shops (“the new mom is registered at so and so, and so and so, and so and so”, so awkward!) plus I knew I wouldn’t be able to keep track of it all. In my searching, I came across Babylist, which advertised as a one-stop baby registry from anywhere on the web. That’s PRECISELY what I was looking for…and I didn’t even know it!
I used Babylist throughout my pregnancy and beyond. In fact, I still use it to gather items together (and I’ll tell you why below). I even forced my sister to go and sign up right away too when she announced she was pregnant over Christmas. It’s never too early to start! I have a tendency to forget items that I said I would always remember once it’s finally time to note them down. Does that ever happen to you?
Anyway, I loved the service so much that I reached out to them to see if they’d want to partner and I’m so thrilled that it’s worked out so I can offer you painless registry experience solution with a heartfelt endorsement! SCORE!
Not only that! No, no, along with my encouragement to sign up for Babylist (do yourself a favor!), I’m also offering a FREE PRINTABLE baby shower invitation. We created it for my sister’s baby shower that we threw in June and I LOVE how it turned out. We had an Alexander Girard theme complete with a baby block accordion invitations and they are SOOOO cute.
Birthdays are one of our favorite things to celebrate and we celebrate an awful lot of them during the summer! No complaints here. A member of the Lars team had a great idea to seek out some of her friend’s favorite things so she could add them to her own bucket list! She wanted to know their favorite book, Netflix show, flower, restaurant, etc.. so she could try them out within the next year. What a sweet idea, right?! So we made a printable template that you can use to hand or send to friends to fill out and return. You’ll end up with loads of new suggestions, plenty to keep you busy with for the next 12 months! What a wonderful birthday present, right? We’re thinking of making this a tradition! Just alter the questions, (or keep them the same) and send them out year after year.
