A Garden of Friendship – FREE Printable!

garden of friendship - a free printable tag with adorable poem about friendship! attach to a bouquet of flowers and deliver to a friend! love this!.jpg

I love to leave small surprises on my friends’ doorsteps – a happy reminder when they come home that they matter and are loved.

Here is my latest little doorstep blessing and it has a FREE Printable too {{knuckle bumps}}!

garden of friendship 1.jpgI scored these adorable plush and bendable flowers at The Dollar Tree.

garden of friendship 2.jpgThen I printed the above tag (see below for download) and wrote a short note of encouragement to a friend on the back.

garden of friendship 3.jpgI wrapped the flower around that special friend’s doorknob and my mission was accomplished.

This would also work well with a bouquet of real flowers – I just happen to like fake ones because they don’t require any watering.

:-)

Love it?

How To Not Hear “I’m Bored” This Summer – FREE Printable!

FREE Printable BORED sign for summer!You know it’s coming.

That moment when you’ve taken the kids to 13 trillion different water parks and play dates and ice cream parlors and libraries and malls and movies and bowling and after all that one of them is going to have the nerve to throw himself across the couch and say with an exasperated sigh, “I’m soooooo bored.”

When my hubby was little, if he ever, EVER dared to utter that phrase in his house, he was immediately issued a chore.

So he learned real quick how to keep himself entertained – especially during the summer months.

Another way to inspire your kids to not use the ‘b-word’ (although I am personally in favor of serving up housework – you will probably have the cleanest house ever this summer) is to use this fun FREE Printable.

Post it on your fridge as a handy, inspirational reference!BORED poster 1BORED poster 3

I think it’s time to clean my fridge. ;-)

Advent Paper Chain Countdown – FREE Printable

advent paper chain 1Y’all know I am passionate about Advent Calendars.

And you know that I have a wonderful FREE Printable for you to countdown to Jesus’ birth using Christmas Scripture verses each day (find it HERE).

This year, however, I wanted to try something different.

advent chain1I created a cute FREE Printable of a fun poem to attach to a paper chain.

I found an amazing FREE Printable paper chain over at Spell Outloud that shares 25 names of Jesus – one for each day of December.  I printed it out on red and green paper.

I am especially clinging to His names of Prince of Peace and Good Shepherd this season.  How lovely to spend the days leading up to our Lord’s birthday dwelling on who He is.

On all that God gifted to us through His son’s coming.

We made one for each of my 2-year-olds to take home and do with their families.  I posted about it on Instagram and someone emailed me and asked if I would share the tag I used here on the blog.

It’s not too late to start counting down.

To a Special Mum – FREE Printable!

This is SOOO adorable! Buy a mum (just a few bucks at Lowe's), attach adorable free printable tag and give to a mom in your world who you would like to bless!

As a mom, I am constantly thinking about how much I NEED my mom friends.

I called one up this afternoon and we each took a minute to share the day’s trials (like how one child has now decided that taking off his diaper and painting a carpeted room with his poo is perfectly acceptable and other child is having some trouble in school) and simply lament together how hard this whole mom thing is!

It was completely therapeutic.  She oohed and ahhed over just the right things and she affirmed me with these 5 powerful words:

“You are an awesome mom.”

By the end of the conversation I wanted to reach through to the other side of the phone and give my friend a giant hug.

Doesn’t it feel good to hear that little bit of encouragement when you are in the mommyhood trenches?

Doesn’t it feel good to be noticed?

Well, here is an easy way to give the gift of hope and life to a mom in your world who is roughing it with poo and meal-planning and budgeting and diapering.

mum 2First, pick up an inexpensive mum plant.

You can find adorable little pots at Lowe’s for just a few dollars.MUM TAG

mum 1Then attach my FREE Printable tag.

Next, drop it off on a mom’s doorstep for an extra special Fall-themed surprise.

And that’s all there is to it!

A Fall Checklist – FREE Printable!

October is my favorite month.

South Florida living is not very conducive to enjoying a genuine autumn experience, so I have to be super intentional about creating fall in our Happy Home.

A few year’s ago I made a little checklist to help keep our family on track.

You’ll find all of your favorite fall activities on this list (I think mine would have to be going to the pumpkin patch – hopefully this year’s trek will prove to be more successful than last year’s).

I hope you will print one off for your own Happy Home to check off together.
