Kleenex Teacher Gift Idea with Printable Tag

printable-tags-for-teachers

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Huggies and Kleenex for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine. I don’t know about you, but it seems like I can never have enough Kleenex© Ultra Soft around my house. As a mother of 3 little girls, it seems like someone is always sniffling or sneezing especially when school starts and the germs start to circulate. The Kleenex Ultra Soft Facial Tissues are the best because they are super soft for those sensetive noses.   I love to give Kleenex Ultra Soft to our new school teachers each year too, since they are dealing with a lot more sniffles and sneezes then I am on a daily basis. That’s another reason I buy a big pack of Kleenex© Ultra Soft from Sam’s Club. Then I can still have a stockpile at my house and be fine with gifting these. Another time saver is that Sam’s Club offers FREE online Order Pickup so you [Read More...]

10 Tips to Awesome PHONE Photos (PLUS a free ebook!)

IG1

I know, I know…here I am, a professional photographer, encouraging you how to use your phone camera. Let me explain myself…I love using my digital SLR camera to capture stunning, gorgeous, breathtaking images. SLR cameras are an amazing tool and I get mine out at least weekly, if not daily. However, if I’m being truthful I find my SLR to be big, clunky, and kind of a pain to carry around with me everywhere I go. I use to carry my cumbersome SLR with me at all times capturing almost every single moment of our lives. Until about a year and a half ago. Until I got an iPhone 5. All of a sudden my life changed. I had a super portable camera that I carried with me at all times AND I could edit my photos AND I could publish them pretty much instantaneously. Wow. Do I think my phone camera can completely replace my SLR camera? Heavens no. [Read More...]

Strength Of My Love For You Printable

Strenght-of-my-love-prints

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 [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.
