I’m Back! with New Fall Printables

After a long, hard summer with moving halfway across the country, I am back to designing some new printable artwork and hopefully starting up some new shopping posts.

Here are my latest 8″x 10″ printable posters. Each come as digital files in both .jpg and .pdf with crop marks. They will be a special addition to all your fall decor!

This first poster says “Strength for today and bright hope for tomorrow”–taken from the hymn Great is Thy Faithfulness. I designed this poster for a dear lady who is going through some difficult cancer treatments. I hope it encourages you, too! Get it at the SHOP.

Another print that is fun for fall . . . “hello fall.” Available HERE.

I hope you’re having a great start to the school year. We are appreciating getting back to a schedule and routine. And I love the onset of fall so you’ll be seeing more posts about that soon.

Let me know if you’d like any particular theme or saying on a poster. I love requests!

FabFitFun Spring Box + Discount

This box is what dreams are made of! 

Have your tried FabFitFun boxes? Each season they come out with a new box that has all kinds of goodies. Not just samples but full sizes of health, beauty, and fitness items!

I haven’t tried a box myself but have heard and seen all sorts of great things about it. The thing I’m interested in is they have unique items that you don’t just find everywhere and it’s always a surprise as to which particular items you’ll receive.

This month’s box, for example, contains a Gypsy 05 Roundie and a really cute makeup bag! The Roundie (not an affiliate link) alone costs $50 so it’s like you’re getting all the other items for free! You can use the Roundie as a blanket, shawl, tablecover, and more. But read on . . . I’ve got a discount code for you to use!

How to Organize Messy Drawers

Organizing Messy Drawers

About a year ago, I had had it with my drawers. I’m always a little OCD when it comes to folding things–shirts, towels, sheets–but I just didn’t have the right technique for folding my shirts so that 1.) I know what shirts I have and 2.) they don’t all come unfolded when I take out one from the bottom of the stack.

I’m not sure where I found this technique (probably Pinterest!); if I find the source I’ll post it here. This has been a life saver for me! And my kids can actually keep their drawers pretty organized for a while, too–which is saying a lot! 🙂

So here’s how I do it:

Hoppy Spring Printable Poster is Now at Etsy!

I love spring and all the newness of the season! Snow ends, flowers and trees begin to bloom, robins and bunnies begin to dance around. What better way to celebrate spring and Easter than with an update to your decor. I designed this Hoppy Spring printable poster in a standard 8″ x 10″ size so that you can print, frame, and feel fresh and new. It’s a rustic style with white cutout of a rabbit on a wood background, but can be dressed up in glitzy gold or whatever else to match your own style. Hang it on your wall or create a fun vignette of favorite items.

Visit my Etsy shop to get your copy of Hoppy Spring and see my other seasonal printable items, too!

Shopping: St. Patrick’s Day at Target

St. Patrick’s Day is almost here! I’m part Irish and if there’s one tradition we stick to–even more than wearing green–we always have corned beef and boiled potatoes on St. Patrick’s Day. My kids actually love it and look forward to it. I also like to try to do something in green–decorations or a dessert. I’m not sure what I’m doing yet, but I found some fun inspiration at Target.

  1. Artificial potted succulent plants (in the Target Spot)
  2. Lexar Jumpdrive Storage in green ($8.99; I couldn’t find green on the website. Maybe it’s just a seasonal thing.)
  3. Green gardening boots ($29.99; in the seasonal area with other gardening items)
  4. Lemongrass & thyme candle by Archaeology ($14.99)
  5. Light & dark green bath towels ($4.99)
  6. Cute Smith & Hawken ceramic toadstool/mushroom perfect to hide leprechauns from the rain (on sale this week for $14.44; regular $16.99)
  7. Pillowfort lime bowls ($.79 in Housewares)
  8. Couldn’t resist this lovely white jersey rose ruffle pillow by Xhilaration (on sale for $15.99; regular $19.99)
  9. Lime vase filler by Threshold ($9.99)
