Weeds & Wildflowers Calendar – August & September 2022

August and September 2022 calendar pages by Lellobird

Celebrate resilience with plants that thrive in vacant lots, sidewalk crevices and neglected corners of the garden. This calendar grew out of my 100 Day Project exploring the wild plants that grow in my neighborhood.

The finished calendar page is 5.5″ wide x 8.5″ tall and can be displayed in a frame, on a corkboard, in a stand, washi-taped to your wall, on the fridge or however it makes you happy. Just print the PDF below on letter-size (8.5″ x 11″) cardstock and cut it in half. If you want to be really fancy, round the corners with a paper punch.

Each page is laid out so that after the month is over, you can cut the artwork into a 5×7″ piece without the calendar part and use it as a postcard or framed art.

Caterpillar Printable

My street has a lot of fennel (or is it anise? I’m never sure) growing wild on the median, and every year it’s a home to anise swallowtail caterpillars. Because I have wonderful neighbors who pull weeds and pick up trash and prune street plants, I made a little sign this year so no one accidentally demolishes the butterfly habitat while the caterpillars are there. (Did you know that in their tiniest stages, swallowtail caterpillars are camouflaged as bird poop? Nature is so cool. They can be hard to spot if you don’t know what you’re looking for!)

In case you have a similar situation and want to lend the pollinators a hand, I made a printable version of the sign you can download (and color, if you like).

Sugar scrub labels

Free printable labels for sugar scrubs, by Lellobird

I recently hosted a pedicure party as a fundraiser for our local school, and I thought it would be fun to give the participants a little treat to take home.  After a little research (hooray, Pinterest!), I made sugar scrubs for everyone and designed some custom labels for them.  I thought you might like to have a printable version of the labels, too – they’d be perfect for goodies at a spa day or bridal shower, or as a quick gift for a friend.

I tried two different recipes I found online.  My favorite (and the most popular one at the party) was the Brown Sugar-Vanilla Body Scrub from Fiber Artsy & Craftsy.  It smells good enough to eat (like cookie dough!) and contains just four ingredients, which you probably already have on hand.  I added an extra cup of white sugar beyond what the recipe called for, because it seemed too moist at first.  The recipe filled five of the 8-oz jars.

I also made the Lemon Sugar Scrub from Hey Wanderer.  With just three ingredients, this recipe is super-easy, too.  The finished product didn’t seem quite lemony enough to me, so if I did it again I might use lemon essential oil instead of lemon extract.  It made enough to fill six 8-oz jars.

Overall I probably spent about $10 on ingredients making scrubs for 10 people – and I have sugar and olive oil left over.

And I found these cute wide-mouth half-pint jars at Target for just over $1 per jar: Ball Wide-Mouth Half-Pint (8 oz) Jars with Lids.  So at just over $2 per person, that’s a pretty easy and inexpensive give-away — and one that everyone seemed happy to get.

I made two different versions of the labels for you (right click to save PDF).  They’ll print six per page on letter-size (8.5 x 11″) cardstock:

With ingredients listed

Without ingredients listed, in case you want to use your own recipe or add a personal note
Sugar scrub labels by Lellobird, without ingredients

NB – Since all the ingredients are technically food, these scrubs are pretty safe – but, of course, you are the best judge of what you should put on your skin, so use common sense.  And do be careful with glass in the bathroom, for heaven’s sake.

These labels are free for your personal, non-commercial use.
