Grilling Card

Ok, guys, Father’s Day is right around the corner. And maybe last week’s World’s Greatest Pop card isn’t your thing. So here’s another option.

I made this last year for Hubs when I gave him some nice grilling supplies. And as a side note, this card is in no way Father’s Day specific, so you can use it for a birthday or whatever as well.

This card is fairly simple, and looks more impressive than it is. So let’s get to it, shall we?

World’s Greatest Pop {Father’s Day Card}

Father’s Day is just around the corner, so I’m going to show you how to make an easy card for the pun-loving father in your life.

I made this for my Father-in-law last year, but I forgot to take any in-process shots. However, the concept is really simple, so I’ll tell you about what I did and I’m sure you can recreate it easily!

Chubby Little Snowman

It’s winter.

It’s cold.

I have a toddler.

Needless to say, we’re running out of indoor activities. If you’re having a similar experience, I have a little fun project for you.

Little Man goes to an ECFE music class every week, and this is something the teacher has done a few times and LM thinks it’s awesome, so we decided to re-create it at home and share it with you. Plus this is simple enough a toddler can help make it. Continue reading

Gift Tag Idea

Hey, I’m just putting up a super quick idea that I’m using for gifts this year. I know that there are some of you out there who have all of your gifts already wrapped, so you can just tuck this idea away for next year. I also know there are just as many of you that have not wrapped a single present, and who maybe even haven’t finished (or started!) buying them.

I like to make my gifts look lovely all wrapped up, but I’m also all about saving myself some time. Last year I told you I’d started using craft paper instead of Christmas wrapping paper, and I still love doing that, since it saves me money & headaches. Last year I bought some really cute gift tags for each gift. This year I didn’t have enough tags and I was not excited about having to make yet another trip to yet another store, so I decided to use stamps.

I just used the first initial of the recipient’s name, since we don’t really have any repeats in our family. You could do whole names or initials if you do. This way I’m not writing up lots of tags & tying them on, or making little flaps out of paper to stick on. I just have a few stamps and stamp them right on. I’ll still use tags for the presents from Little Man, since he loves to try to write his name, and that way they’ll be easier to tell who they’re from. But for the ones from Hubs & I, just initials. It makes my life easier and I think it’s super cute.

Try it!
