Screen Free Week Printable

In Freebies, Mommyhood

I’m ready!  I have a full list of fun things we can do for our screen free week and I know we’re going to have fun.  I also know that this will be quite a challenge and there will be down time.  But learning that down time is actually a positive thing is a good lesson for Gav to learn.  I’m not saying that he’ll get it right away, he is only 4 after all, but maybe after this week he can start to realize that it’s good for him.  You’ll be able to see how we’re doing through the week on Instagram! (I said that it would be *mostly* screen free for me and I promise to only ‘Gram when it’s quiet time or I’m in the bathroom or something.)   CLICK HERE TO DOWNLOAD You can see what’s on our list of fun activities for next week in the first pic!  What would you put on your list?

What are you Thankful For? + A Freebie

In Freebies

It’s November!  What?! Well I hope that this post finds you happy and well rested from your extra hour of sleep!  But if you’re like me your night comprised of your toddler hyped up on the high of Halloween and some sugar, your congested 6 week old not sleeping well (which basically means just more than usual), and then everyone still got up at 6:30, you may be just as thankful as I am for caffeine!  Glorious, beautiful, delicious caffeine! Today I’m sharing this fun print over on Style at Home Mom! Coffee definitely tops off my mommyhood thankful list, you know, behind my children, of course!  Coffee is a gift from heaven and proof that God’s wants us to be happy (and to function). But, let’s be real, there really is so much to be thankful for and each Sunday this month I plan to share one of those things.  Some may be a little silly and some will be a bit closer to the heart, but I’m very blessed and thankful nonetheless!   DOWNLOAD HERE Thank you for being you, coffee! And Also a big thank you to Rachel from Style at Home Mom! So tell me…what are…

DIY // Hanging Clip Frames

In Uncategorized

Need a last minute Mother’s Day gift?  What you make something for that special teacher?  I think these frames make the perfect DIY gift!  These are easy to make and can be personalized however you like. I made this one for my mom since I wanted to give her something this year to incorporate our new edition.  This is also special because, as a mother of only one, my mom is getting a second grandchild!  She is beside herself excited! DOWNLOAD HERE This DIY also comes with a FREEBIE!  Don’t see your special grandparent name?  Let me know and I’ll be happy to whip one up just for you! Can’t wait to give this to my mama and see it in her classroom!  Also, I wish we had a name to put on here instead of “Baby”, but we’ll find out the gender the DAY AFTER Mother’s day.  It’ll serve as a fun memory for when we found out what our second bundle of love is!

Our Spring Bucket List

In Uncategorized

Happy First Day of Spring!  It may not actually look like spring at the moment in my neck of the woods but we’ve had some spring days mixed in here and there and it was so wonderful! We’re so ready for warmer weather and sunshine to stick around for a little longer than a day or two and I know Mr. G is ready to get his park/playground on!  And oddly enough, I am too!  I’ve never been an outdoor person until I had Gavin and now I look forward to it.  Here’s our bucket list for the sunny times ahead! Mr. G love’s making “collections” and it’s the perfect way to work in a good walk for me too!  Making your own nature collection?  Check out THIS activity we did last year that Mr. G absolutely loved.  Plus, you can keep all of the nature stuff in one place! I think I’m most excited about the zoo!  At three years old, Mr. G has never been.  *GASP!*  I know, i know!  He’s also never been to the aquarium and that’s on our list for later in the year. I really wanted to wait for him to really enjoy the…

In Uncategorized

UPDATED VERSION HERE! If you’re like me, school supplies and planners are just wonderful to you!  I’m always looking for the “perfect planner” and while I’m pretty sure that’s an Erin Condren Life Planner, I don’t have to funds to shell out for one for the time being.  That being said, I found a solution to my constant planner purchasing.  I narrowed down what I really need one for the most and created exactly that.  For now, what I need is something simple to plan out blog posts for a week or two.  Weekly planner it is! This fun and simple layout was doodled by yours truly and is all yours for free! (For personal use only please!) DOWNLOAD JPG FILE DOWNLOAD PNG FILE You can use the .jpg file to print the clean and simple white paper version or, using the .png file and print on fun and colorful paper.  The possibilities are endless if you just take a turn down the scrapbook paper aisle! Happy Planning!

DIY // School Artwork Binder

In DIY, Mommyhood

I had a hard time finding the right title for this post.  Honestly it should read,”My son is my most precious little baby and I can’t believe he is in preschool and all of the little tiny pieces of artwork he does must be saved and treasured and I will never ever get rid of them!  EVER!”  But I wanted you to actually read this post, so I went with a DIY. But in all honesty, these first little art projects are so precious and special that I really do want to keep them to look through, not only at the end of the year but when he graduates from high school and even when has kids of his own.  What he does with them after that is his deal but for now, these are my memories and I love love love looking at them!  I could have scanned them in and made them into little cards for my Project Life (which has sadly been neglected for months but that’s for another day) like I did HERE.  But I wanted to do something different for all of these piece from his school days. What You’ll Need: Binder with Clear Cover,…

Weekend Freebie // The “Mommy Motto”

In Uncategorized

It’s been a rough couple of days.  Mr. G has been sick, like sick sick, but he’s been to the doctor and gotten some meds and I think (praying, knocking on wood, etc) he’s on the mend! Today I bring you my motto for dealing with these very situations…Eat, Sleep, and Drink More Coffee! Honestly, this could just be the “Mommy Motto”and can be translated as such: Eat (all the feelings), Sleep (what is that?), and Drink More (and more and more) Coffee! DOWNLOAD HERE: YELLOW CORAL BLUE CHALKBOARD ENJOY! (and try not to pull your hair out, just drink more coffee!)

Saw It, Pinned It, Tried It // Post-it Printing

In Uncategorized

Have you seen this?!  If you haven’t, it’s going to be your new favorite thing.  I was fairly skeptical at first thinking that for sure, when I went to do this, the post-its would get caught in the printer.  Paper jam, big mess, both Hubs and me upset because I just ruined our really nice printer. This just didn’t seem like something I wanted to risk for the sake of DIY.  Believe me, it was tempting, but I decided to pass.  Then I saw The Paper Mama‘s tutorial doing the same thing (along with a pretty fabulous printout of her own) and I thought that maybe I could try it.  If so many people were trying it, with who knows how many different printers, it must be ok to do. There is a catch!  You need to know how you paper feeds into the printer.  We have a crazy laser jet and it took me a hot minute to figure it out but it’s totally worth it now! Here are a few fabulous templates I’ve found. 1 // 2 // 3 Other great ideas I’ve seen are printing Instagram pics, party banners, teacher’s notes, and a chore chart. So what…
