Cinderella Quote Printable

     Hi there! Can you believe that July is coming to a close already? Crazy how time flies. My husband told me that when he was little, he understood the idea that "time flies when you're having fun" and that it drags on when you're not. Because of this, when he would see other kids having a good time when he wasn't, he would think, "Man, they're so lucky. It's probably already tomorrow for them." I thought that was cute!
     Today's printable also fits into the "cute" category (and the "time flying" category for that matter): a quote by Cinderella, "A dream is a wish your heart makes." One of my dreams is to make blogging my profession. I know that seems silly to most people, but that's my dream. My husband's dream is to do stand-up comedy full time—that seems even sillier to a lot of people, but that's his dream. I don't know where life will take us, but if we don't chase our dreams now, then we'll never know what could have been.
     As I've become more acquainted with the blogging community, I've come to find that I am not the only Disney-lover, so I hope you'll enjoy this design, and that it brings back fun memories of your Disney experiences! It's a fun printable you can use for a child's bedroom, as a party gift, or maybe even your own room (hey, there's nothing wrong with that). Wherever you decide to put it, I hope it encourages everyone who reads it to chase their dreams!

Origami Heart {With A Surprise}

     It's the weekend, YAY! Now that I'm working full-time, weekends are especially wonderful. It's so nice to be home with my husband and my little sweetie pie ^_^
     I'm going to get right to it today—was that a sigh of relief I heard?
     So, I've always LOVED origami! When I was younger my mom would buy me those fun origami books, and I would try to do all the patterns (and succeed at maybe three of them). To this day I'm still no pro, but it's still fun to try and create beautiful things using only paper and folding. For our fist anniversary, I decorated our living room with a whole bunch of origami butterflies, cranes, and flowers for my husband. Do you know why? Because your first anniversary is you PAPER year. Didn't know that? It's ok, neither did I until I looked it up online. This year is our COTTON year...still don't know how I'm going to spice that one up haha.
     As you've probably guessed by now, today's printable involves ORIGAMI! But if you aren't an origami master, never fear, this is a really simple pattern, and I've included step-by-step instructions.
     This origami heart is one that I learned how to make in middle school. My friend Anna and I would wright notes to each other (we didn't have cell phones) and fold them into these paper hearts. When I was thinking about this the other day, I thought it would make a fun printable. And I've included a surprise note inside for whomever you decide to give your heart to ( sweet).
     There are three different designs, so pick out the one with the saying you like best, print it off, follow the folding instructions bellow, and present it to your friend, loved one, or cat (although, if you give it to your cat you'll probably have to help them open know, lack of opposable thumbs and whatnot).
Happy folding!

Easy DIY Cherry Blossom Decor

     Why hello there. So glad to see you! I hope that life is treating you well.
     Last Saturday we went swimming with out little Davian. This is his third time swimming, and I'm always surprised at how content he is in the water! Even when he gets splashed in the face he just doesn't mind. He even sneezed a couple of times while we were swimming and his whole face went in the water as he jerked forward: he bounced right back and was totally fine. What a trooper!
     But, onto the good stuff. I am super excited to share my DIY project with you today: cherry blossom branches for your home decor! I've always loved using found-objects in crafts. I didn't have a lot of supplies for craft projects when I was a kids, so I was forced to make use out of whatever I could find, and with this project I feel like I am reconnecting with my childhood-self.
     This was something I just kind of dreamed up in a moment of spontaneous creativity, and I had no idea how it would turn out. I must say though, I am pleased with the results. This is such a simple craft! All you need are:

  • My Cherry Blossom Printable
  • Scissors
  • Some Branches
  • Hot Glue

Simply print off the design, cut out the flowers, and glue them onto some tree branches—that's it, easy peasy. 
     As simple as this is, I think it's a lovely addition to your home decor!
     Happy Crafting!

Bohemian Bookmarks

     Hello there! Hope you are having an awesome week. A couple days ago, we had my Summer work party: it was a blast! There was good food, lots of treats, a soft serve ice cream machine, and they even rented an outdoor screen to play a movie. But the best part was probably the fireworks! It was a surprise for everyone: they had us all go to one end of the park and all of the sudden, there was a fantastic fireworks display.  It was really cool. I love my new job!
     Alright, now, todays printable probably isn't going to be quite as exciting as a surprise personal fireworks display, but I still think you'll love it: Bohemian Bookmarks. Simple, chic, and incredibly practical, these bookmarks are such a cute way to keep your place while doing some Summer reading!
     I love to read, but I do have a knack for losing my good bookmarks. So, then I end up using whatever I can find to mark my place wether it be the receipt that came with the book, a playing card, a scrap of a candy wrapper, or a bobby pin from my hair (yes, I really have used all of these things as "bookmarks" before). But, I've decided that as a proud DIYer (is that a real term?), I should probably step it up in the page-marking department. So, I hope you like my bohemian-style designs, and you'll use these fun bookmarks as you tackle your Summer reading list!
     Happy reading!

{Editable} Recipe Cards

     It's the weekend, yay! I hope you are all doing something fun, but if not, get ready to have some fun right HERE, because today I have a new printable for you :D
     This printable goes right along with my series of "food-related"printables I've been working on. So far I have done a grocery list, a meal planner, and today I present to you: RECIPE CARDS! Who doesn't enjoy having cute cards to write down their yummy recipes? But wait, there's more (this is that moment in the infomercial where you are about to hear the part that is about to blow your mind and totally seal the deal): not only are these recipe cards positively darling, but they are EDITABLE too!
     I was talking to my mom the other day (she's a big fan of my printables), and I told her that I was planning on designing some recipe cards. Her response was, "That would be great! But could you make it so that I can type on them. I hate having to write them by hand, and then if they get ruined, you have to write them again. It would be nice to just print off a new one."
     What she said was absolutely right, and so I promised her that I would do just that. (Of course, if you like writing recipe out the old fashioned way, you still can: just print these out like you normally would.) I think these would make a fun Bridal Shower gift, or you could possibly print off a few of your favorite recipes and give them out to your neighbors, family, or for visiting teaching.
     This is my first time making an editable printable, but, if you like it, let me know and I will be sure to make more in the future! 
     Are there any ideas you have for an editable design? Comment below, and you may see it in one of my next blog posts!
                            Printable Grocery List                                       Printable Meal Planner

P.S. I had a hard time getting the line spacing right, so you'll have to write each line one at a time.

Lovely Floral Garland

     How's it going everyone? I hope your week is going splendidly :) This week is a BIG one for me; why? Because I got a new job! I really did love my last job: the people I worked with were awesome, and I loved the subject-matter, but it was time to move on. I'm super excited for my new job, and I start TODAY! It is my first full time career-type job, which makes me nervous, but I can tell that the people are nice and it's a fun atmosphere, so I'm sure that it will be a good transition. Wish me luck (I'm gonna need it)!!!
     On to today's freebie.
     So, I've been on this big "floral" kick lately. It seems like all of my most recent designs have flowers incorporated in some way or another. There are just so many pretty flowers blooming right now—I just can't help it. So, today's printable involves, you guessed it, FLOWERS!
     Use this pretty floral garland as decor for a party, your craft room, or any space that could use a touch of blossoming prettiness. Or, if a garland isn't your thing, you can use this flower template for cup cake picks, scrapbook pages, or a fun little embellishment for straws. Whatever you do, it is sure to be beautiful!
     Happy Crafting!
