This post is sponsored by HERSHEY'S KISSES but all opinions, designs, and images are all my own.  The holiday season is upon us and now it's time to find small ways to show people that we care.  I love putting together small simple gifts that I can hand out for fun or as a party favor for holiday guests.  It also helps if I can find a way to get my girls helping so they can see that making things for others is fun and rewarding. These “MERRY KISSMAS” treat bags are a simple way to spread holiday cheer amongst family and friends during the Christmas season. And the bonus is that my girls love to fill these little bags with their favorite HERSHEY’S KISSES Brand Milk Chocolates and give them to their friends at school before winter break starts. This is a super easy project kids can help with. Start by downloading the file and print 1 color copy of the “MERRY KISSMAS” Gift Tag Printable onto white cardstock paper. Cut your tags out either with scissors or paper cutter.  Each … [Read more...]

Santa Sack Printables


Today I am over on Tater Tots and Jello sharing our new Christmas tradition-- The Santa Sack. I don't know about you, but it seems like each year we accumulate more and more toys.  I thought this would be the perfect solution to our problem and hopefully it will help your family out too. Each year when our elf Peter comes, he will bring this sack with him and the cute little printable attached.  I will probably work out some kind of Family Home Evening lesson to go with it so that the girls know that we have plenty and need to worry about helping others by giving what we have excess of to those who don't have much or any.  If I do anything formal I'll make sure I share it here. ;) So head over to Tater Tots and Jello to get my tutorial for making the bag, and if you are coming here from there, then here's your chance to download the printable. For the Red Printable For the Green Printable All printables and downloads designed by The Crafting Chicks are for PERSONAL … [Read more...]

Strength Of My Love For You Printable


You might remember seeing this quote from my girls room re-do and the colorful frame wall I did.  I have loved this quote since I first pinned it. I think it's because getting, and staying pregnant, was so hard for me that once it finally happened I savored the sound of each heartbeat.  It brings me a bit of joy to think that each of my girls knows what my heart sounds like from the inside!   I used 3 different backgrounds and printed each of them because I wasn't sure which one I wanted to use.  That is good news for you cause now you have choices.  Strength Of My Love---Once you download you will need to unzip the file in order to print. This pink one worked best for my room, but I almost went with the polka dots.  And who can say no to the chevron stripes?  Each of the backgrounds is a part of Crystal Wilkerson's Color Combo 4 paper line.  Crystal has some amazing things so make sure you stop by her site. These are large format prints since I needed mine to … [Read more...]

Don’t Burst My Bubble Valentine


I was walking through Target and happened upon a box of bubbles.  I just knew they would make a great Valentine! It was a box of 24 bubbles for just over $3.00 at Target, but here are some on Amazon as well if you wanted a larger quantity.  Go look in the party supplies and you can throw this together in no time. All you need is this printable, the bubbles, and some twine (or glue).  I love how cute they are and every kid loves bubbles.
