Free Halloween Printables

While preparing for the kids Halloween party, I decided to find some cute printables to help with the decoration. There are so many out there, it's hard to chose one. Here are my top 8!



Spells and Potions Halloween: Creepy Jars & Candy Labels {Free Printables}

"You are the balm" Lip Balm Labels from www.thirtyhandmadedays.com

Halloween Printables: Spellbound Sweets

This last one is the one I chose for the kids party because the color matched perfectly with the goody bags and favors I found at Walmart. I'm saving the other for next year. 

Autumn Time

Our family is now fully in Fall gear. We are drinking cider, eating candy-corn, planting mums and cooking and decorating everything with pumpkins. The kids had a blast helping me get some fall supplies.

Fall is by far my favorite season- pretty colors, cozy sweaters, yummy food and warm drinks.
Any one else loving this time of year? what is your favorite thing about fall.

Pretty Marietta

We have been loving our new little town. Awesome sunsets and pretty views everywhere you look. I wanted to share the beauty with you lovelies. So here are a few of the things that I've been seeing.   

I did want to put a little disclaimer here- I am not a photographer. I just snaps pictures whenever I see something pretty. Believe me, my photos do not do justice to the real view. But I wanted to share it anyway.

We Love Make Believe

Our little Peanut loves playing make believe. She wear some sort of costume or crazy-get-up at least once a week. Tiaras, wings, hats and full on costumes are part of her everyday. I love her imagination, her individuality and her sense of style. 

I don't always take pictures, though I probably should. But here are just a few of her make believe days from the summer. 

Any princesses in you life?

Teacher Gifts

I know this is a little late for this school year, but maybe it will inspiration for the next teacher appreciation occasion. This little gift was super cute a cheap to put together as well.

I got plastic pencil cases from Walmart for 97 cents each.

Free Printable

I printed this adorable quote from the Balancing Home blog. I found the cutest tissues from Walmart, also for 97 cents. They had the picture of a screaming teacher and said "The students are coming!!" Which worked out great since the kids dropped the kids off to the teachers a week before school started, when they went to visit their new class.

I added some candy and this adorable printables from Thirsty Hand Made Days Blog. The printable had some information about the kids and a second card for the teacher to complete and return to me with some ideas to help me put together her next gifts.

I really wanted to fill up the pencil case so I got a few more things (to make it look full). I added a bookmark made by Salvation Army women in Papua New Guinea. I got these adorable miniature journals for 25 cents each at Walmart. When I went to the dollar store I got 3 note pats for a dollar and 3 pretty pens for a dollar as well. The apple sticky notes I got for 25 cents each, last year from a discount bend long after school had started.

We made 3 gift boxes, one for Truett's teacher and the other two for Charisma's teacher and assistant teacher. The kids loved picking out the goods for their teachers and the teachers seemed to really enjoy the thought they we put into it.
I'm supper exited to put together teacher gifts for all the coming holidays. How about you?

First Day of School

We're taking a break from homeschooling for the year because of my work. But the kids are in no way upset about it. The little troopers were super excited about their new adventure. 

The adorable signs are from a back to school bundle I purchased from IHeart Organizing blog. It had all kinds of cute things- it was money well spend. 

The teachers were did such a good job at making them feel welcome. And their first day was a success.
Oh, by the way the cute tags with their pictures are from Thirty Hand Made Days blog.
