It is that time of year again! Kids are headed back to school. Some are excited about it, others, not so much.  I have some of each in my house. I am excited for them though. It’s fun to think of the new things they will learn and the friends they will make.

Here is a fun printable for you to enjoy! Click here back to school to download the pdf. Just select it, save to your computer and then send to your favorite printer. You can also click the photo below and save it to your computer. I have found that sometimes the pdf prints better, but not all printers will print a pdf version. Either should be fine.

I love decorating for each season but it can be expensive. Having a frame that you change out with printables for each season and fun event during the year is a thrifty, fun way to add some seasonal flair to your home, office, classroom, etc.

I think it would be cute with some fun school supplies for a beginning of the year teacher gift also. Print it small and make it into a card, throw in a gift card or something else your teacher will love and you have a thrifty gift in almost no time at all.

So now that it is back to school, it’s time to get back to a routine and order. I am looking forward to that aspect of it, even if the thought of getting up at six in the morning every day isn’t my favorite thing LOL. So good luck and I hope this is your best year yet!

DIY Emoji party invitations, teen or tween party idea

Looking for a fun party theme for your teen or tween, DIY Emoji party invitations, teen or tween party idea

DIY Emoji party invitations, teen or tween party idea

I love making invitations for my kid’s birthday parties, but don’t want to take forever or spend a lot of money.

My daughter had a birthday and it was time to come up with something fitting for her.

You will need

Yellow cardstock or construction paper

markers, vinyl or paper in black, white, red

markers to write the party details on the back

scissors or a circle template cutter

I cut my circles in 4 inches and they seem to be perfect for a party invitation.

Begin by cutting your yellow cardstock into circles. I love this Martha Stewart circle cutter that I have had for years. You do need a self healing mat if you are going to use a cutter like this though.

Once you have your circles cut it is time to decorate them. Scraps of vinyl were used and I have the faces used if you are interested in them. I created them myself, so I don’t mind sharing. They were made on my trusty silhouette, so they are in that format, so shoot me a message or post in the comments if you are interested.

Just write your party information on the back and you are done. This would also be cute as a party banner, party coasters, so many options and they are so cute!

Thanks to Smart Spending Spot  for this money saving  recipe for patriotic strawberries!  This recipe is rather simple but makes a huge statement for the 4th!  Easy food recipes that look fancy at my favorite!

To make this recipe you will need:

  • fresh strawberries, cleaned and dried
  • white chocolate chips or discs
  • colored sugar
  • wax paper
  • baking sheet
  • glass bowl for melting

Clean and dry the strawberries. I chose to cut off the green tops, but it’s up to you.It probably would have been easier to dip if I had left them on.
Spread out on cookie sheet and put in refrigerator for 30-40 minutes, or freezer for 15-20. You want them cold so that the chocolate takes to them right away, but not frozen.
Put chocolate chips in bowl and microwave. Start at one minute, then stop every 30 seconds after that. You don’t want your chocolate to overheat and seize up on you. If it does, a few drops of milk or vegetable oil will fix it.
Dip strawberries in 2/3 of the way, leave the top third just plain red (for the red portion of your red, white and blue). Then dip the bottom third of the strawberry(or roll it) in your sugar. I had to play with this a bit. If you put the strawberry on the cookie sheet and the white chocolate is touching the paper, it will stick. You need the sugar to help it not stick. I also tried a paper plate and a small dish (with depth) for my sugar.
Place on cookie sheet until it takes/dries/hardens, whatever you want to call it. It’s really warm here today and we don’t have the ac on, so I actually stuck mine back in the freezer for ten minutes.
