Every Halloween my kids always ask to bring “treats” for their class, but the complication is that they often can’t bring in food. (Or at least need to bring in peanut-free candy). So a few years back, I came up with these personalized printable tags that you can DIY print and insert a few glow sticks in them. They work perfectly, and make kids (and adults + teachers) happy.
Every October in our house, I sit down with my kiddos and we make them together for all their classmates. It’s such a great craft for kids to do with a parent. You can find the printable glow stick tags here which includes super simple instructions. Easy peasy. And have I mentioned, that they also make GREAT favors for Halloween birthday parties?!

And for all those little boy pumpkins, there’s a full party package designed in the most beautiful blue, orange, and brown color scheme. Full of everything you would ever need to plan the perfect party, including a little pumpkin chalkboard poster with all the important first year milestones!
Fall is quickly approaching, and what a sweet way to celebrate a lil’ pumpkin on the way with cozy fall pumpkin theme! We’re so excited to introduce our new fall collection full of sweet pumpkin baby shower invitations, fill-in-the-blank dear baby wish cards, coordinating gift lists (for the ubber-organized), and adorable matching “books for the baby” insert cards. And for even more party inspiration, check out our Pinterest page that has a whole board on the cutest pumpkin shower ideas.
If your family is anything like ours, we get a LOT of gifts every holiday. Those two lucky boys of ours receive more gifts than they know what to do with. And so after Christmas, I sit down to begin the task of writing a ton of thank you notes to family, friends, neighbors … the list goes on. You know the drill.
Of course, I am a bit picky with my thank you cards. (It goes with the territory). And in the holiday spirit of complete honesty, every one in our household has their own personal stationery. Well, almost everyone… everyone except my husband. He could care less. And let’s be honest, I’m writing most of his thank you notes anyway.
This year, though, we tried something a little different. We went for the personalized family photo stationery. And I gotta say, I LOVE it! I might be just a tad bias, but here’s why… 1) it can be used for anyone in the fam. So the kids don’t have to each write a thank you note separately. Or at least I don’t feel like they should. 2) It matches our Christmas card this year. (Yay! I can’t help it, but matching makes me happy), and I had them printed along with our Christmas cards. (Another win for being prepared way ahead of time)! 3) I used the exact same photo from our Christmas card. It pulled double duty. That’s a win-win. 4) And .. finally… come on! Look at those cute little faces! They make me smile everytime I pull a card out to write a note. That, my friend, is the ultimate win/win!
Oh how December always sneaks up on us… it’s freezing cold in Chicago, there’s a bit of snow on the ground, our Christmas tree is twinkling and the kids are bouncing off the walls on constant sugar highs. It’s by far my favorite time of year!
Wishing all of you a very Merry Christmas and Happy HOWLidays from our family to yours. May you have a blessed holiday season and a 2018 filled with healthy, joy, and lots of cheer!
We love the 4th of July over here! Not only is summer the best season in Chicago, but I’m particularly in love with some great fireworks and bbq’s. So, in honor of the 4th, you can find this adorable free download stars + stripes banner. We whipped this up for the kids to cut out, string together, and use to decorate for our July 4th party. (So.. yep, these photos aren’t perfection… they are just our everyday… which is perfection to me).
Happy 4th and happy decorating! (And if you want more free printable 4th of July decorations, you can find some cupcake toppers over at this Oodles and Doodles post).
