Monday Made It and Meet Me Link Up

I am linking up with two great blogs today for their summer link ups!  Up first is Tara for her weekly Monday Made It!

My first Monday Made It is my Rock Star Theme Pack that I just completed last night!  It is loaded with decor for a rock star themed classroom.  I have included editable labels, binder insert, and banner as well!  I think it turned out really cute and I love the bright colors.

My second Monday Made It is hair bows!   I made hair bows for my girls.  I also glued Swarovski Crystals on the bows to give them a little bling!

My next link up is with Teaching Tribune.  This week they are featuring, "Meet Me" again, but this time we have to tell 3 things that we are thankful for.

Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek.  I {heart} comments and followers!

A New Product and A Chance to Win

I haven't sat down and written a blog post in a few weeks because I have been busy enjoying my summer.  I have linked up here and there, but not really sat down and caught up on my blogging.

My in-laws have been in the past week visiting from North Carolina! The girls were really excited to see them since we do not get to visit them as much!  We took them on a little day trip over to Jefferson, Texas and did a little antique shopping.  I have been on a mad search for old wooden salt and pepper shakers.  I saw the cutest idea on Pinterest where old shakers were sanded, chalked painted, distressed, and then had a final wax paint finish on them.  It was super cute and I am convinced that I could make it.  Now if I could only find old wooden salt and pepper shakers.  We went in what seemed like a ton of antique shops, but no such luck on the salt and pepper shakers.  I guess the search is still on!!!

I have also been busy with my oldest daughter the past couple of weeks.  She has had dance camps and today she finally had tryouts for her performing group!   I am relived to say that she made it!  So we will be traveling and performing a lot again this upcoming year.   She really works hard at dance.  She loves to dance so much, but it does not come natural for her like it does for others {she probably gets this from me, I basically have two left feet}.  She has to put in a lot of work, time, and effort to make it look as good as the other girls!  But this is her sport and passion and she does not seem to mind putting in the effort!

I also wanted to share with you my newest product I made.  I made a Back to School Pack that is loaded with a lot of print-and-go activities to keep you busy those first few days of schools.   Below is just a peek of some of the things that are included in the pack.  There are 20 different printables!

If you would like a chance to win this pack!   Just leave a comment below telling me how you have been staying busy this summer and I will pick one lucky winner to receive this back to school pack.  Don't forget to also leave your email address!!  I can't wait to hear from you!

Father's Day Ideas and A Small Freebie

With Father's Day fast approaching and not really knowing what to get the hubs this year I did a little Pinterest idea shopping a found some really cute ideas that the girls and I could whip up and make at home this year!   My husband loves Reese's Pieces and I found this great idea.  Check out the picture below for my version.

I scooped up a mason jar, made my own label, and tied it up with cute ribbon in guy colors and viola a yummy snack for Daddy!  But wait, we didn't stop there,  since I have two daughters they informed me they each needed to give him a treat, so back to Pinterest we went and we found a great idea using Peanut M&M's {another favorite snack of his}!  So, once again we stuffed a mason jar, made our own version of the label, and tied it up with ribbon.  The girls really loved helping make this easy craft.   I know it is so simple, but I like that they enjoy making things.  I can see that they are going to be crafters just like their mama!   

If you would like my freebie version of the tags that I made, click on either of the pictures of the tags below to have a down loadable version just for you.  Be sure when printing that your printer is scaled to 100% so the tag will print the correct size!   I put a distressed look on the digital paper to give it a more rustic look, I hope you like it!!!

I also found the cutest freebie on Pinterest,  a website called Kiki & Company that allows you to print out free small notes to stick around the house just for dad.  We decided to make ours into a mini notepad instead {the girls came up with this idea}.   This website also had a printable version for grandpa too!  Kiki & Company had several other ideas that could be used for Father's day.   Be sure to stop by and check out all her great printables!!

I know that my kiddos are super excited about giving their daddy their homemade gifts.   We are also going to attach a gift card to Home Depot to one of our gifts since he is frequent visitor!  Do you think dad's love homemade gifts as much as mom's do??  What great ideas have you found for Father's Day? I would love to hear from you!   Thanks for stopping by!!
