Cthulhu Decorations

After a discussion wishing we could hold a Cthulhu-themed party, a friend of mine came up with the idea of posting party planning ideas online, and as I design the odd party invitation it seemed like the perfect thing to do here. So, if you’re looking for unusual party ideas, geeky party decorations, or game ideas, hopefully the Parties page will give you a few ideas!

In honour of the original discussion, the first one is for Cthulhu. Whether you want to invoke the dread creature himself, celebrate Lovecraft’s life and work, or jump on the cute-cthulhu bandwagon, click here for our Lovecraft Party page so far.

Mother’s Day Coupons

Happy Mother’s Day to british mums! Having spent the day cooking and washing up for my mum, I started wondering how you could turn helping out into a proper gift that might encorage the rest of the family to help out a bit. I’ve created coupons and tokens for other things on Zazzle, so this seemed the obvious next step!

Give your mum a set of customizable coupons: just write a series of chores in the blank space, and give them to your mum to redeem at her leisure. Personal and useful.

You could add: doing the washing up for a day, hoovering the whole house, breakfast in bed, mowing the lawn, taking the trash out, doing the shopping, cleaning the car, cooking the evening meal…  and anything else you can think of.

Because it’ll be Mother’s day in the USA before the UK one comes around again, here’s one for american moms:

And finally, we all know dads have plenty of chores too- so here’s the dad version, and a couple of others:
