It’s crazy to think that holiday season is right around the corner. I still can’t even accept the fact that Summer passed in the blink of an eye. (It must be a tell-tale sign of getting old). As October hits and our schedules start getting busier and busier, we have less time to think about gift ideas. With endless events, parties, birthdays, and holidays, they can sneak up on us and leave us scrambling. But, with a little prep work, or a saved pin on your pinterest board for later, you can store ideas away and be prepared well in advance this year! Today’s recipe works for just about any gift idea, and honestly, you can just keep it on hand at home, ready to pour when you have house guests stop by. This limoncello recipe is easier than pie, but it does take some patience and a little bit of time before it’s ready to sip.

I’m a huge animal lover. Always have been and always will be. I’ve had cats, fish, reptiles, and even a chinchilla, but nothing has come close to the relationship I have with my sweet little pug pups, Oscar and Sophie.
Inspired by them, today I’m sharing a fun and easy printable that you can use for the perfect gift to give to the dog owner in your life! These printable dog gift tags are so cute and add the perfect touch to your gift bag!

Barbecues, pool parties, camp outs, outdoor movie nights, and more! All fun summer activities to do with friends and family and all of them also involve snacks! My specialty! (No, really…I have “snack time” as a nickname, guys. I’m a legit snacker). I don’t mess around when it comes to snacks. They can make or break a party and it can be hard to pick options that appeal to a crowd. Whatever your favorites happen to be, these printable summer treat bag toppers will take your party snacks to another level!

Celebrate the mom in your life with these free printable mother’s day notecards, complete with matching envelope liners! So easy!
I hate to admit it, but as I get older, it’s inevitable. Almost everything that your mom told you when you were growing up is actually correct. I know…I don’t like admitting it either. But it’s kinda true. We like to pretend we have all the answers, but our moms actually do. At least, most of the time. (But I still don’t like to admit it when I’m around her).
So it’s only fair that for Mother’s Day, we shower the all-knowing ladies in our lives with a little bit of admiration and maaaaybe even admit that she’s always been right. (And if that’s the route you want to go, I have a notecard for that 😉 )
Today, I’m sharing these free printable mother’s day notecards with you guys. They are fun, pretty, and even come with mismatched envelope liners, which I love almost as much as the cards!
Today is Valentine’s Day! How many of you are still un-prepared? Raise your hands. It’s ok, you don’t need to hide. I’m sure there are a lot more of you than you realize. My dad famously ran to the grocery store one year and bought my mom a blow dryer because he forgot. So, it could be worse. (TIP: Don’t buy your significant other a blow dryer. It did not go over well).
And don’t worry…I’ve got something that can help to add a fun little touch to an existing gift you already have or to make your Valentine’s day table pop that much more. Plus, it doesn’t get much easier than these printable Valentine fold out cards!
Not only are they easy, but they involve food puns. Yep, FOOD puns. Pretty much my favorite thing ever. I mean, I’d probably be happy with just the card, if I was gifted one of these little guys. They are just too cute!
These Valentine fold out cards have endless possibilities. Not only would they make adorable gift tags to attach onto your Valentine’s Day gifts, but they also make really fun placecards for a Valentine’s Day dinner, brunch, or galentine’s day celebration too! And because all they require is a printer and some scissors, you still have time to add them to your tablescape this year! Win/win! [Read more…]
This 2017 free printable snack calendar is a perfect (and delicious) way to ring in the new year and enjoy all of the coming months! There’s no shame in my snack game.
Wow. I can’t believe it. After almost a year of taking a break from the blog, I’m officially back (and with an adorable first post, if I might add. This 2017 free printable snack calendar is seriously my life).
The beginning of a new year seems to have a magical effect, doesn’t it? Like you can totally transform into a different person. You can put the past year behind you and move forward with an entirely new outlook, regardless of what the last year had in store for you. That’s exactly how I feel about this new year. It’s a fresh start. Not just for me alone, but for the blog too. It was the perfect time for me to get back into my groove and get me excited again. The blog is my creative outlet where I get to share the things I’m passionate about with all of you guys and I definitely didn’t want to force it when I wasn’t feeling it!
There are a lot of things I want to do in 2016 and a lot of goals I want to meet. Whether or not you are someone that sets “resolutions” or goals for a new year, I still think it’s important to challenge yourself to try new things, break bad habits, or to make improvements to your daily lives, regardless of it being the beginning of a new year or not.
One of the things that I always try to do is to create little highlights in other people’s days. It can be as simple as sending a little note or putting together a care package, just because, to send their way. I’ve found that it can really cheer someone up when they’re having a bad day or when they just need a little pick me up. Plus, it couldn’t be more simple to do!
This year, one of the ways I’m going to go this is to send a birthday card to my friends and family in the mail. Yes, the ACTUAL mail. Not a birthday message on Facebook, not a text message, an actual card that is sent by way of USPS. Crazy, right? (Yes, that is sarcasm at it’s finest).
The days of sending sail mail are definitely behind us and I don’t want to lose out on the highlights that an actual piece of mail can bring. When our mailboxes are usually stuffed with ads, bills, and catalogs, it’s nice to get something else in the mail that you actually want to receive.
I’ve partnered up with Tiny Prints and we’d love to challenge you guys to do the same with the ‘Birthday Card Initiative’ this year for the people in your lives too!
It’s definitely an easy thing to do and I’m making it even easier for you to track all of your upcoming birthdays with a free birthday calendar printable that you can download and print too!
