Fourth of July Free Printable {Set of 3}

Ready for some Fourth of July printable fun?!

I told you I'd be back with some :)
We're leaving for the beach next week so there's lot of laundry and list-making going on here. 
Plus I finish my last day of grad school tomorrow which is the most exciting thing ever. 
I've been in school for over six years now...and it's all coming to an end.

Onto the fun patriotic printables! 
I wanted some that were fun & colorful...
but oozed some American love :) 

Check them out: 

Cute, huh?
I think they'd be super cute on a gallery wall or even printed as cute tags for a 4th of July BBQ.

{Fourth of July Mantel Decor}

We are in countdown mode around here...
only a week until we are lounging beachside, listening to the waves & soaking up the sunshine!!

I only have a week left of grad school and I'm so incredibly excited to be wrapping it all up. 

But before we leave for the beach, I wanted to share our Fourth of July decor that we have around the house so far. 
I didn't go all out for it but I made a few changes on the mantel that made all the difference. 

If you remember my spring mantel I shared a few months ago, you can see that a lot of it stuck around to make up the bulk of the mantel. 
I just added a few pieces to make it sing a little more red, white & blue. 

I whipped up a quick 'In God We Trust' sign from old pallet wood and a few burlap & fabric stars. 
It was a quick & easy project but I love the rustic americana it brings. 

The blue 'freedom' block was from my 4th of July centerpiece I put together last year. 
And my little mason jar got a little star love too with some fabric stars I attached to wooden dowels. 

The flag was a fun distressed piece I made. I just can't get enough of distressed signs :) 

The 'home of the brave, land of the free' was a free printable I shared a couple years ago.
You can get your own here

Lastly, I added a 'freedom' banner I made from linen & twine. The same fabric stars from my pallet sign were used on the banner too. 

How are you liking my fourth decor? 
I"m loving having a little bit of patriotic flair around. 

Are you decorating a bit for the holiday? 

Hope you guys are having a great week, check back tomorrow for some fun & colorful fourth of July printables you can use in your own decor!!

Father's Day Free Printable {The Original Superman}

Looking for a last minute Father's Day gift idea? 
Or just needing something cute to have out for decor?

I've got you covered :) 

Little man loved a random Father's Day commercial we saw the other day (can't remember what it was actually for though) and this print was inspired by their catch phrase that dad was the 'original superman'.
Love it!

Plus, Superman comes out this weekend so it's perfect timing :)

Cuz dads are definitely superheroes. 

If you have a superhero daddy in your life, these are perfect to share the love a little.
Just print, frame & enjoy :) 

Super awesome, huh? 

And they are in three colors!
So you can pick your fave to use :)

{Father's Day GIft Idea} 'Daddy' Handprint Sign

Father's day is, what? 
Four days out? 

If you're anything like me,
I'm always racking my creative little brain to figure out something for Father's Day. 
It's just not as easy to get something fun & easy for those dads in your life as it is for a momma.
They don't appreciate the 'cute-ness' of things as much as we do :) 

This Father's day, I wanted something that the kids helped with but also something that would stick around a little longer than a drawn picture or a handprint on a mug. 
Though those are always a hit :) 

I decided to make something with...handprints...
Yep, I'm original.
But with a little spin on it. 

Just hold on... check it out...

It's a handprint sign :) 
How cute is it?
And the kids had so much fun helping me get it done. 

Instead of the tried-and-true painted handprints, I decided to utilize my little dremel and make some handprints right into the wood. 

I started with these scrap pieces of wood I pulled from the garage: 

They were given a thick coat of bright white & then I hand-stenciled the letters for both 'daddy' and 'poppy'. 
The fun part is to customize them with your guy's favorite color or to go with your decor :) 
I love bright, hand-painted signs. 

To make the handprints, I traced both the kids hands on either side of the board. 
Little miss was on the right & little man went on the left.

After I traced them in pen, I went over them with the wood-carving tip that came with my dremel. 
Putting my  gift to good use :) 

I love, love, love how easy it is to use. 
I have another fun & way easy project to share using my dremel soon!! 

If you don't have access to a dremel, you can trace over the prints with a paint pen or even grab a wood-burning kit from Micheals to get a similar effect.

I love the dremel tip because it carves right into the wood and is super easy to control. 
Now, we have a permanent reminder of their little six-year old hands :) 

If you're doing multiple prints, be sure to mark on the back which side is which kid.
I think it'd be super cute to do a longer board & have handprints lined up along the side. 

After carving the handprints, I went over the whole sign with my sander to give a distressed look. 

Poppy has already been given his and it was a hit.
I think mimi was a little jealous so I'm keeping it in my back-pocket as next year's mother's day gift.
It'd be super cute to have a matching 'mimi' and 'poppy' sign, huh? 

Daddy is going to love seeing his kid's hands too :) 

What do you think?
It's traditional with a twist, which is right up my alley :) 
Hope this helped give some quick inspiration for you to get ready for Father's day!! 

Happy Wednesday everyone...halfway through the week- woot!!

Candy Shoppe Sixth Birthday Party

It has been way. too. long.

*hangs head in shame*
I have no excuses...
other than just keeping up with life.

More on that later though. 
Today I'm DYING to share little man's last birthday party with you. 
Cuz it's cute. And boy-ish. And fun :)
And has printables for you coming up too...what's better than that?? 

I wanted something fun & colorful.
And coming up with boy parties can be tricky.
He made the final decision and decided he wanted a candy birthday. 
Which got my wheels spinning :)
