Thank Card Freebie

IMG_5647

I have some thank you’s to catch up on since my “birf”day was not too long ago. I didn’t have anything lying around that I haven’t used a million times already or that was a bit more sophisticated than a kids thank you note. Sooooo, after a fun day trip to Edison, WA with girlfriends, a trip to Colorado and an oh-so fun and much needed girls-night-in last night, I was finally able to sit down to create a new thank you card.

I’m a lucky lady to have such thoughtful friends in my life. I am always blown away at the care my friends put in to their gifts. Of course I always love the gifts I am given, but it is thoughtfulness that gets me every time. Truly – one hundred percent – feeling the love – how did I end up with such extraordinary ladies in my life?

And to share that love with you all, you can download this free thank you card right here. I hope everyone has friends in their lives that know just the right little something to make you feel special.  For me, it’s an awesome marble cheese board and a circle picnic blanket with a concert ticket (yippee!!). Such a difficult person to please 😉

 

Free Nature Scavenger Hunt Printable

IMG_5356

I was out with my girls yesterday and we found some local trails to explore. Normally, my seven year old is gung-ho to explore and my five year old is “too tired” to walk anywhere. However, to my surprise, they were both willing to see where the said trail led and we were off on a little unexpected adventure. It was a breath of fresh air (literally) to be outside in nature enjoying ever turn and corner with my two little ones. No one complained or whined and we kept going to see what we would discover. Even my five year old said she wants to do more trail walks…what?! OK!! To help keep interests alive, we made it an adventure to see how many different things we could find. We saw bunnies, a blue heron, ducks, flowers, creeks, bugs, etc. I think it’s so important for young ones to get out and see what is past their backyard. Fortunately in the Northwest, we are so lucky to have woodlands and forested areas just minutes outside any given neighborhood.

During our excursion yesterday I was inspired to make my own version of a nature scavenger hunt card. I was kid free this afternoon and had fun creating little illustrations for the printable. I rarely get several hours at a time to myself to create something fun just because. And here it is to share with you all…for free! Click here your free download and I hope you have many adventures this summer exploring your local trails with the little ones!

Mother’s Day Card Free Printable

IMG_4611Mother’s Day seems early this year and it’s the same week as teacher appreciation week so I’m a little behind the eight ball (what’s new?). But in the knick of time, I whipped this card up for my Mom to pop in the mail today.

As a Mom for seven years now, I always feel like there are those moments when you are dealing with one issue or another with your kids and lightbulbs go off in your head. You realize you did the exact same thing as a kid and how frustrated your mom must have been with you! So to all those Mother’s out there that have put in their time, I say sorry for holding my breath until I was blue. Sorry for arguing with my brother about who has more room in the backseat of the car. Sorry for not going to the bathroom before we left the house. Sorry for waking you up at night just because I thought I heard something. Sorry for throwing up in the grocery store checkout. Sorry for complaining about what’s for dinner. Sorry for my messy room and leaving a trail of stuff where ever I went. Sorry wearing hideous outfits…shall I go on? I could, but it would take all day. To tell your mom sorry, just click here to download your free PDF. Happy Mother’s Day to all you amazing Mom’s out there and thank you!

Free Printable Teacher Thank You Card – Phew!

IMG_4599Did teacher appreciation week sneak up on anyone else like it did me?! If it did, rest easy, I have a free printable teacher thank you card for you! Our teachers do a wonderful service in teaching and guiding our children to be prepared for adulthood. And nothing is more valuable then a teacher who cares about and works hard for our children. So regardless of our hectic lives and stuff we have going on, I at least want to give them a card – after all, our kiddos spend more time with their teachers than they do their parents during the school year (sniff, sniff). Just click here and print on white card stock and you are good-to-go to say “thank you” to that special teacher in your children’s lives.

Also, check out the free recipe cards I posted last week. I had my girls tell me their favorite recipe and then I typed them on the cards, printed them and am pairing them with these mini measuring spoons for a simple, yet sweet personalized gift for their teachers.

Mother’s Day Editable Recipe Card Freebie!

IMG_4535Happy Monday! I tried getting this recipe card ready for you last week, but was sidetracked with other duties throughout the week. Boo! BUT, I plowed through and got the last bits of it together this morning. Yahoo! Sharing recipes have long been a way of bringing families and communities together. An expression of love through food. No matter how we communicate recipes, whether it be online or cookbooks, sharing food we love will always be relevant to the human spirit.

The recipe cards on my Etsy shop are one of my biggest sellers. They are easy to work with, you don’t have to hand write a recipe (I loath writing a recipe!), and you can use them over and over just by saving a new copy. Who can argue with that?!

Recipe cards make a great personalized gift for your mom, sister or friends and are great for showers. And It’s close to wedding season folks! I’ve paired some of my favorite recipes on cute cards with some tea towels and kitchen gadgets from the brides registry for a sweet and personalized gift. So until Mother’s Day you can download this 4×6 editable and printable recipe card right here…for free! Hope you enjoy!

Easter Art Print: Freebie!!

IMG_4313Here is a little free a Easter art print! Easter has not been much on my mind like everyone else because we celebrate Greaster (Greek Easter) and it’s not until May 1st this year…way far away!! But I didn’t grow up in a greek family so there is a part of me that still wants to celebrate this week with you all and so I got my Easter pants on and made a freebie printable art print to celebrate the occasion 🙂 And I will for sure be making some hot cross buns for Good Friday! One of my favorite Easter traditions my mom always did.

Click here for the PDF print.  …can you tell I’ve been in to watercolor lately?!

Valentine Class Bookmark Cards – Free Download!!!

IMG_4015With sick kids, half days and a multitude of other unplanned stuff in our schedule, it’s been taking me longer than I would have liked to get these valentine bookmarks finished and shared for a valentine freebie! But, alas, I finished {sigh}.

I really try to limit the trinket quota in our house, but it always seems to be a loosing battle. However, I trudge on and hope someday my house will be a trinket free zone (wishful thinking, right?). That said, for valentine’s day, it’s a mecca of trinkets and so in the past I’ve just done some simple valentine cards (see my Etsy Shop) with a lollipop taped to the back. For fear my kids will get bored with my noncreative valentine efforts (however, I thought their cards were pretty cute, but kids could care less about the design…it was for me 🙂 ), I decided to create some valentine bookmarks. Not as exciting as candy, but my mom conscience feels much better about it! So here you have it…they are a free download for the next week and then they will be available on my Etsy Shop for purchase after that.  Just print (on card stock), trim and write on the back and you are finished! Enjoy 🙂
