Mother’s Day Printable

DSC_0065 copy

Mother’s Day is right around the corner! As a mom I adore the sweet little gifts I receive from my kiddos. I have had many breakfasts in bed that I would have to say were very interesting… but endearing. These past few weeks, I have been brainstorming with my good friend Holly, and we came up with this fun Mother’s Day Printable. It not only gives “Mom” an option of what food she likes and where she would like to eat her breakfast. But, also a 2nd Mother’s Day printable that is all about “Mom” and the kinds of things she likes and enjoys. Such a great way for kids and or hubby to get to know you better! These printables could be used for a very fun Mother’s Day morning full of memories and love. To all you GREAT Moms out there. I applaud you! Its a a lot of HARD work but so very rewarding! Happy Mother’s Day to [Read More…]

DIY Photo Mat and Free Easter Printable

featuredimage

I love a good holiday printable…who doesn’t? It’s such an easy way to add holiday decor into your home. This super easy DIY photo mat and Easter printable was perfect for my entryway. Here’s what I did… First, I needed a frame. I found a simple black one at the dollar store and spray painted it gold. To make the mat I used a piece of regular cardboard. You’ll want to make sure that whatever you use won’t be too thick to fit back into your frame when it’s all done. You might need to use something that’s not quite so thick, like a gift box, cereal box, or even a piece of cardstock. I used a plain photo mat that I already had as a stencil.  I traced it onto the cardboard and cut it out using a razor knife. I used scrapbook paper to cover mine. Wrapping paper would work great, too! I would have used Mod Podge to [Read More…]
