We are getting dec’d out in our home for 4th of July… sort of. I’ve always been a slacker at decorations during the holidays, not because I don’t want them. I blame the hubby, and the fact that sometimes I like to spend money on other things that last all year long. But, as we get further into our marriage, I hope to have a bazillion decorations set up for every holiday.
But, this banner is helping our home look more festive, and it’s perfect for the upcoming Olympics this August! You can keep this baby up for another month!
I have received many requests over the summer for a 2016 calendar printable, and I am finally ready to share next year’s calendar. I cannot believe how quickly this year has gone and in 4 short month’s we’ll already be bringing in another year!
We are excited to be spending the next year in Washington… JD cannot contain himself with his excitement about the big move. Just the other day, someone said “hi” to him and asked him how he was doing. He proceeded to tell him his current situation of how his Dad is gone (for military training), and that we’ll be moving to Washington soon. The kid has no filter and will pretty much tell you his life story.
The 2015 Calendar Printable has been a huge hit and I’m so glad so many of you have downloaded your printable and love it. For the 2016 Calendar, I have created a few new designs that I hope you’ll like! I wanted to keep the same feel of the last calendar, but with a few new fun and fresh designs to help keep you somewhat calm during some of your busiest months. You’re going to have fun staying organized with this cute 2016 Calendar!
*UPDATE* I’ve also included a landscape version of the printable! The only problem, I somehow could not squeeze the entire year onto my document, so it’s been split up into two downloads. So don’t forget to download both parts for the Landscape version only!
I have been wanting to make one of these Birthday Calendars for a long time, and I’ve finally done it! I had seen so many cute ideas on Pinterest, but was always worried I’d mess it up. You see, when it comes to painting on wood, I find a way to screw it up and then I’m done with that project. I never want to see it again basically. Although, I remembered something my super talented SIL and friend (Tammy & Liz) did last year and I absolutely loved it!
I wanted to create something just like that, but didn’t want to have to deal with a painting fiasco. So, I came up with a solution and a printable that you can use too. It is extremely easy and all you need is:
1. Print out your background from the following options below.
2. On a separate sheet of paper, print out the “birthday cake” and cut those pieces out. (I’ve tried printing on glitter paper, and it did not work out well, so DON’T do it!)
3. Trace the “birthday cake” onto the back of the glitter paper and cut those pieces out.
4. Glue the glitter “birthday cake” pieces onto the background you printed out.
5. While you’re waiting for the glue to dry, hot glue your drawer knob at the bottom (center) of your picture frame.
6. Once everything is dry, stick the Birthday Cake Background into the frame and hang up your family & friend’s birthdays that you’ve written on the chalkboard tags onto the drawer knob and you’re done!
Easy, right? I’ve created 3 different backgrounds in 12 different colors. So pick your favorite and have fun creating you’re own Birthday Calendar!
It’s that time of year again – baseball season has begun. It’s the start of a brand new year, and the hope that your team will do better than the last. It’s a brand new team that has been given a clean slate. In my home, Opening Day is considered a Holiday, and we are die hard Oakland Athletics fans (I married into it). I was never a baseball fan, or a sport fan in general, and yet after 5+ years of marriage it has slowly grown on me. My husband grew up going to A’s games, and now that we have a family of our own, it’s turned into a family event. I can now say I enjoy going to baseball games, especially since both our boys love it.
I’ve slowly been turning our boy’s room into a Baseball/Oakland A’s bedroom, and I’ve finally gotten around to making some wall art for their room. If you’re family is as big a fan of baseball as we are, then you’re going to love these Baseball Printables. I’ve created two versions of the quote “Baseball isn’t just a game, it’s Life,” and “Let’s Play Ball” with a few different colors to match your favorite teams. Hope you’re enjoying the beginning of baseball season as much as we are!
Let’s go Oakland!

Gold Foil is such a popular thing these days, I figured it was time to join the club. I don’t have a fancy silhouette, so I thought it would be fun to make a gold foil-looking printable. This print is a great reminder that you are beautiful for just being you, and to never change who you are.
The frame I used on the left was done by my talented friend Dominique, who is amazing at turning old things into beautiful home decor. She has a cute little shop on Etsy, and sells lots of upcycled and Shabby Chic frames and other decor at Birdie Go Go. You have to check her out!
I’ve made 2 different types of Gold Foil Prints to choose from, one with a normal Gold Foil look and the other with a Glitter Gold. If you aren’t feeling the gold but like the print, I’ve made a print with a black font.
Need to spruce up your craft room with some new art? This simple and fun “Create” Printable is just what you need. I’ve created this printable in 6 different colors to help you add some color to your room, or to fill that empty spot on your wall. It’s just the thing to help inspire you on your next project if you’re in a rut.
I finally took down our St. Patrick’s Day decorations over the weekend and I’m finally starting to decorate for Easter. I’m excited to be sharing this Easter Bunny Printable with you in 4 different colors! Hopefully this gets your family excited about Easter as much as mine!
As promised from my previous post (Patricia Holland – Printable Quote) I’m sharing the rest of the quotes that I’ve created for our upcoming Relief Society Birthday Dinner at the end of the month. I love these quotes because they remind us of what the Savior wants us to be. I can’t wait to hear what the Prophet and the rest of these amazing brothers and sisters have to say to us in the upcoming General Conference next month to help us remember our purpose here on earth.
Are you still adjusting to Daylight Savings time? I might be the only one, but I actually get excited about Daylight Savings time whether it’s “springing forward” or “falling back.” I’m a huge fan of having longer days so that we can have family walks after dinner or go to the playground if my kids are going crazy at the end of the day.
As Daylight Savings beings, that just means we’re that much closer to Spring! With that being said, I created these “Hello Beautiful Spring” printables in 3 different sizes for each color. Hope you love them as much as I do!
