It’s beginning to look a lot like… oh goodness, it IS Christmas!!

Saturday, December 21, 2013

Tis’ the season for massive amounts of gift wrapping and if you are like me you have waited until the very last minute to do it.  I remember my Dad teasing me because every Christmas Eve I would be doing all, and I do mean ALL, of my Christmas wrapping.  Though I do the bulk of my wrapping throughout December,  I always save a few presents to do on Christmas Eve because now it is just a tradition.
So, if you are a procrastinating traditionalist like myself then these last minute printable gift tags are for you!
Step 1:  Print off and then cut.
You can simply cut them into squares or you can round the edges like I did to this one.
After this tag I felt like I was overachieving a bit, so plain squares it was for the rest of them!
Step 2:  Gather gift wrapping supplies.
This step had me questioning my children multiple times asking them where they hid various items.
“Where did you put the tape?”
“Were you playing with Mommy’s string again?!”
I found out every single time that it was me that misplaced every single thing…
not my proudest Mom moment.
Step 3: Wrap present.
I’m not the best wrapper, so instead I will show you the finished product.  Ta-d… oh man, there’s a crease!!
Step 4:  Attach gift tag.
I tried to cover that darn crease, I really did.

P.S. If you would like to try designing some yourself,
you should definitely try out PicMonkey!

Baby Shower Game Printables

Thursday, November 7, 2013

I have a confession.  I’ve been having a pity party for the past couple of days… and not even a good one.  It was celebrating basic everyday things like how I have a cold, how the kids have colds, how none of them have been sleeping through the night, how I haven’t been sleeping through the night, etc.  There wasn’t even Ben & Jerry’s, and it’s just not a good pity party if Ben and Jerry aren’t there.

Anyways, I’ve been so self-involved that I haven’t even visited my little blog for a couple of days. So, I’m finally cancelling the party (it was a stinker anyways) and I’m going to post about something I love.  Something that always makes me happy…


(cause honestly, who doesn’t love babies?  and free printables?  It’s really a win-win.)

I had the pleasure of attending a baby shower a couple of weeks ago.  Like I said, I love baby showers!  The clothes alone are enough to send me into a fit of OOoooh’s  and AAaaaww’s.  Might I insert here that boy clothes have gotten SO much cuter since I had my boys.

For this shower I was asked to prepare a couple of games.   I found this game from the blog PINK TEA that I absolutely loved.  I thought it was so creative and would be a fun game for the party. Since this shower was for a baby boy, I wanted to create a printable that had boyish colors… and then I designed one that was a little more girly just for fun :).

(The answers for this game are as follows: 1. Green Eggs and Ham 2. Goodnight Moon 3. Velveteen Rabbit 4. Three Little Pigs 5. Sleeping Beauty 6. The Ugly Duckling 7. Are You My Mother? 8.  Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See?  9.  Where the Sidewalk Ends 10. Go Dog, Go 11. The Very Hungry Catepillar 12. The Cat in the Hat 13. Where the Wild Things Are… there is also a 14th question that I couldn’t fit in, so go check out the Pink Tea blog to find out what it is!)

The next game I came up with was a game I like to call:

“Can You Guess, More or Less?”

For this game you will need to buy some baby items (Make sure to keep the receipt, you will need it for later!)  I bought eight items and I tried to keep them roughly around the same price, within one or two dollars.   Then, calculate the average cost for all the items.  Mine came out to $3.74.

At the shower each person gets an arrow paddle, with the arrow pointing up on one side and down on the other.

Take out one item at a time and ask them to raise an up arrow if they think the item’s price is MORE than the average price or a down arrow if the item’s price is LESS than the average price.

The person with the most correct answers gets a prize!

To make the paddles, simply print out the arrows
*I print two images per page*

Once you have your images cut out, gather some jumbo crafty popsicle sticks and glue.
*I used peel and stick glue dots because the are just so darn easy to use.*

Now just fold your cutout arrow image in half.

Next, glue the popsicle stick in the middle…

and you’re done!

Seriously, baby showers are just the best :).  Now I’m off to locate some Ben and Jerry’s. My pity party may be over, but my craving for delicious ice cream is eternal.

Happy Crafting!!

Hey Readers!

**I’m not entirely how many of you are still checking in, but if you are thanks for being awesome :D**
I’ve decided to give the old blog some much needed updating.   I’m slowly learning all the fun (or not so fun) technical stuff that goes along with that, and it is turning into quite the process….one that sometimes takes longer when I have three wonderful kiddos that often need my attention. We’ve had enough poop painting and toilet tea parties this week **My children are very talented,  I just wish they would start using different outlets for said talents** to make me realize that updating might take awhile.  My goal is to be done by the middle of November, so if you see things changing on here it’s just me tinkering away.  Thanks again for stopping by… Awesome Awards for all!

Printable Halloween Treat Labels

Friday, October 25, 2013


My children are getting quite excited for Halloween.  They have been counting down since September, so you can imagine the sheer joy they expressed when I told them it was less than a week a way.  My ears are still ringing from the shrieking… literally.
I’ve always been somewhat of a procrastinator… in all honesty I probably should omit the word “somewhat”.  Since we are less than a week out, I thought I would make some fun printables for those (ME) that are doing any last minute projects (Again, ME. But, hopefully through this I can find some people that procrastinate as much as me and maybe we can be procrastinating buddies… … …Anyone?).
So, here it is:
Feel free to download this HERE.
I used these for two different projects.
 For the first I made treat jars to hand out to some of our neighbors.  I printed out 2 of the image per page ( 8 circles total) so that they would be smaller.  I then cut them out and glued them to a scalloped circle, and then onto a folded paper rosette (for which I used this tutorial.  Seriously, make some right now.  They are so fun!)
I had so much fun making the rosettes, I decided to make some larger ones to hang on a wall in our home that was needing some holiday decoration love.  This time I just printed out 1 image per page because I wanted them larger for this project.
I cut out the shapes and glued them on some scalloped circles (my husband just got me a Sizzix, thus the many scalloped circles… I may have a problem.)

Then I glued them on the folded paper rosettes…

and hung them on wall.  I love them, but I love not having a bare wall even better!
Happy Halloween!
P.S.  Here’s one more printable, just for fun.  Enjoy!

Julia Child is my favorite…

Sunday, October 20, 2013
Whenever I peruse around Pinterest I always gravitate towards Julia Child’s quotes.  I love them all and have yet to come across one I didn’t. So, when that time of night rolled around where the kids were in bed and I had a little time to myself, I decided to play around on PicMonkey for a little bit and have fun designing one of her quotes that is my absolute favorite.

Couldn’t have worded it better myself, Julia.
