Five Creative School Valentines

Before we leave Valentine’s Day in the dust and start hopping down the bunny trail, I wanted to show you the fun Valentines I came up with for my kids (and me) to hand out this year. This was the first time in many years, that their faces weren’t plastered all over their valentines, but […]

Sparkling New Year Printable 2013

I posted this printable label last year for New Years. I decided to update it to say 2013, so you could use it this year if you would like. It could make a fun New Year’s Eve party invitation if you wanted to write the party details on the back of the tag. Or maybe […]

I thought I was managing my emotions about the Connecticut tragedy pretty well. There has been so much to do–I just keep pressing forward.

Valentine’s Snack Gift Basket with Printable Poem

I’ve been a little reluctant (and preoccupied) to jump into Valentine’s Day too quickly, but have you flipped your calendar, yet? It’s February! Time to get serious about all things Love-related! I made this fun gift for BSB last-minute, last year, but didn’t have a chance to get it blog ready then. I recreated it […]
