New Neighbor Welcome Gift

New Neighbor Welcome Gift

Hi! I am back after a mini-break from blogging. All of the packing, moving, unpacking, rearranging, organizing, and generally try to keep life together while I can't find socks has kept me busy the past couple of weeks but it's back to blogging as usual now. 

I can't tell you how much I love this new house - because I don't think there are words. After living in an apartment for SIX years it's like a brand new world living in a house again. This is the first time in 11 years I haven't lived in an apartment. There is a big back yard, an office, a big kitchen, and a fireplace. Do you want to see a home tour? There are a lot of things I want to change but I can do an before & after. 

First things first - I pinterested REALLY hard to say hello to our new neighbors. This idea wasn't mine... Mrs. Happy from HappyAsWeKnowIt.com shared it earlier this spring. So, I took her downloadable template and then just edited to make the second sheet. 


I mean - how could you not think I was a great neighbor if you saw something so cute. 

Let's hope that my neighbors don't expect something this cute every holiday or occasion. That's a lot to live up to.


On the second page I just said who we were, which house was ours, and included our numbers. It's good to know your neighbors, for better or for worse they are who will be living beside you for a long period of time. Also, if they see something that looks fishy, I'd like for them to know who to call to ask.



I went to Walmart to grab these bags for $0.33! The popcorn was about 12 bags to a box for a few dollars. After buying some white ribbon this project was about $15. 


Two bags of popcorn per sack. 



Just one hole punch at the top of the bag. 


Tie the hello pages with some white ribbon at the top! 


Done! This was such an easy and cute Pinterest find! 

Now, the question is... did they work? They did! Since deliverying them last week I've met four of my neighbors. One set of neighbors brought some cookies, one came over to talk about the neighborhood and one brought me a puppy. 

Well, someone had lost a puppy so she thought it was mine and brought it over so it wasn't technically a gift of a puppy...


For $15 and about an hour or two of time (depending on delivery) it was totally worth it!

Stay tuned for more house updates!
