I’m back! For now that is, until (special announcement) baby #3 makes her debut sometime next month! It has been busy these past few months. I decided to go back to work full time in February, and between taking care of my family and attempting to get ready for baby #3, I haven’t been able to keep up with blogging. Last Friday was my last day of work, and I’m happy to be back to blogging and being home with my crazy, but adorable kids!
With that being said, here is today’s printable! I’m sharing these fun and colorful note cards! If you are pressed for time, or can’t make it to the store and need to let someone know you’re thinking about them, these are easy to print out on the fly, or save them for when you really need it most. Your friends and family will appreciate the cute and colorful gesture! 🙂
It has been crazy these past few months. We moved into our new home, I worked full time for the holiday season, and celebrated our youngest’s 2nd birthday. Now it’s time to get back to working on this little blog of mine.
We’re getting pretty excited for Valentine’s Day at our house. So yesterday, I decided to do something fun with my kids while dad was out of the house. These mini Valentine’s Day donuts are so easy to put together, my kids understood what to do pretty quickly, and they’re 5 (almost) and 2. The best part, you only need 3 ingredients!
Package of Glazed (or plain) Mini Donuts – like Hostess or Little Debbie’s
Candy Melts – feel free to choose your favorite Valentine’s colors
Valentine’s Day Sprinkles
Dip your donut into a bowl of melted candy chocolate.
2. Let any extra candy melts drizzle off of your donut and set on a cooling rack.
3. Grab your favorite sprinkles (look how cute those hands are! I know this picture is pretty much unnecessary but it was too cute not to share).
4. Sprinkle your hearts desire on your donut.
5. Let your donuts sit and dry off for a little bit until the chocolate has hardened. And you’re all done!
Super easy and great to do with your kids. The only downside is the clean up. Like I predicted, the sprinkles got everywhere, but it was totally worth having them do something that didn’t involve sitting in front of the TV or iPad!
What a perfect gift to give away for Valentine’s Day too!
My husband is leaving for four months for Army training tomorrow and we are all so sad about it. I wanted to make something so he’d remember how much he means to us and wanted my kids to take part in it. He loved it, and before he opens a piece of chocolate he gets to see a reminder of why he is the World’s Greatest Dad!
This is such a fun little project to do with your kids and to let their Dad know how much he means to them. All you need is a mason jar and some Hershey’s Nuggets to wrap these printables around. For the Hershey’s Nugget wrappers, I’m sharing the one we did for my husband and you can pick and choose whatever best fits your Dad (or Grandpa) or have fun coming up with your own reasons of why your Dad is the World’s Greatest Dad. It’s the perfect “sentimental” gift to give for Father’s Day and a “Sweet Reminder” of why he’s awesome!
I was asked by the Relief Society in my ward to make a tag to attach to these awesome “bow tied” sweet treats for Father’s day. I was totally in love with this idea, and wanted these gift tags to fit the theme of the candy. These gift tags go perfect with any gift, and I’ve created them in four different colors to match any candy or gift wrap to give to Dad this weekend. What will you use these gift tags for?
Ever since I started this blog, I’ve bought more holiday candy than normal. It’s not necessarily a bad thing, but it’s not always a good thing since I lack self control when it comes to sweets. Luckily, I’ve made these cute little Easter Gift Tags to send this candy on it’s way out the door, if my family and I don’t eat it all before then (no promises). If you’re self control is better than ours, here are some cute Easter Gift Tags to use.
This time of year is the busiest for our family as we celebrate birthdays. With March and April combined, we have a total of 8 birthdays (April being the busiest)! With these upcoming birthdays in mind, I wanted get a head start on these Cupcake Gift Tags.
These Cupcake Gift Tags are so easy to put together and look so cute on top of a birthday present. You can make these ahead of time, store them and use when a birthday has snuck up on you. My favorite thing about these Cupcake Gift Tags is you can use any type of scrapbook paper to make them gender friendly, or go perfectly with your wrapping paper! The possibilities are endless and you’re birthday boy or girl will love them (and your gift)!
Step 2: Print the Cupcake Tops & Cupcake Liner printables on the back of your scrapbook paper. If your scrapbook paper doesn’t fit in your printer, you can always trace the printables onto the back of your scrapbook paper.
Step 3: Cut out your cupcakes and match the cupcake tops with the cupcake liners.
Step 4: Use a small amount of Mod Podge or glue on the very top of the cupcake liner and stick it onto the very bottom of the cupcake top (the curvy part of the cupcake top). When the glue is dry, punch a hole at the top and insert a piece of string, and you’re done! To really go with the theme, use some matching bakers twine instead of string.
I loved Valentine’s Day as a kid in elementary school because of all the candy you got. I could care less about the cards that came without candy, and let’s be honest who doesn’t love a little something sweet on Valentine’s Day? Because I’m a lover of candy, and all things chocolate, I’ve created a printable Valentine’s Day card that you can print out quickly and stick a chocolate heart onto. Your kids will love helping you put the chocolate hearts on, and they’ll feel like they’ve taken part of making a Valentine’s Day Card for their friends!
Over the next couple of weeks I’ll be sharing some Valentine’s printables as we get excited for the upcoming holiday! Today I’m sharing a cute little Valentine’s printable that can be used as both a decoration in your home, or attach to a gift bag of candy to pass out to friends and loved ones.
Who doesn’t love candy? I’ve created 3 Candy Gift Tags for this Christmas occasion that will make a sweet last minute gift! Put candy in a jar and wrap the tag around it, or wrap them in some clear wrap and attach the tag along with it. These tags go great with M&M’s, Reese’s Pieces and Hershey Kisses. This is perfect gift for friends, neighbors, co-workers, or even your child’s classmates.
If you haven’t wrapped your gifts yet (like me) and are in need of some gift tags, I’m sharing 6 gifts tags that I created for you to download. Use these Christmas gift tags for candy gifts, gifts in a jar, presents and more! Hope you’re enjoying your holiday season!
