Free printable Friday: 5 free art prints for little girls’ rooms

free art prints for little girls

As you know, I love to update the art work in my girls’ rooms, as well as in the rest of the house. Purchasing artwork is often expensive, but it’s surprisingly easy to create your own. Today, I am sharing some free art prints that I made using Canva (www.canva.com). Please feel free to download, print them off, and enjoy them!

  1. Esther- Perhaps this is the moment for which you were created.

What better role model exists for your young girl than Queen Esther in the Bible? Her story is all about taking risks, taking chances, trusting God, and having big things happen as a result.

Created.

2. Esther 4:14 with a floral design

the moment

3. Inspiring our girls is important. This art print is positive and encouraging, and sure to remind your girl to be everything she can be.  I love this one so much I printed it and put it on my desk at work.

she believed she could, so she did.

4.  When we are children of God, we sometimes need to be reminded “He’s got this” when things get rough. This sign is a perfect reminder for little girls and old girls, too.

I am a child of God

5.  “For you are fearfully and wonderfully made.”

I found a print very similar to this at Hobby Lobby, but I wasn’t going to pay $26 for it. I decided to make it myself for free! I love the vibrant colors and the floral wreath, and I hope you will, too.

For you are fearfully and wonderfully made

To download, simply right click on your desired print and save it to your device. For best results, I like to send mine to Staples to have them printed.

I hope you have enjoyed these printables! Oh, and PS: You don’t have to have a little girl to download and print them. You can enjoy them anywhere  in your home or office 🙂

5 Easter Basket Ideas that Don’t Involve Candy

5 Easter Basket Ideas that Don’t Involve Candy

easter basket ideas

Each year, I struggle with what to get my children for Valentine’s Day and Easter. Those two holidays come with a lot of merchandise, but sadly, a lot of that merchandise includes sugary treats. Almost every year, I’ve been able to find a small gift that my girls loved and didn’t cause tooth decay.

Today’s Pinterest roundup includes all sorts of cute Easter ideas your kiddos are sure to love.

  1. All Natural Easter Basket

This basket contains plush animals, dried fruit and popcorn instead of mass-produced sugary treats. So much healthier and so much prettier.

2. Baking Basket

If your little kiddo loves to bake, why not surprise him or her with a basket filled with measuring spoons, cupcake wraps, and other baking goodies? My oldest daughter would love this.

3. Art Supply Basket

I hope you have gotten some great ideas for Easter! Have a wonderful weekend.

Life as a Lumber: what we’ve been up to!

Hi, all! After a short, busy summer, we are now (mostly) back on a regular blogging schedule. We’ve been a bit quiet here on the blogging front as we are trying to establish our farm and spend time together as a family.

If you follow me on Instagram or TiKToK, you already have seen some of this.

1. On the farm front

We have grown our backyard flock to five chickens. I definitely want more of them- I have developed a liking to silkie chickens. Look at those little fluffy butts! They’re too cute for words.

Our squash is done, our lettuce is done, and our corn and cucumbers never did a thing! We are still getting some delicious watermelons, banana peppers and tomatoes. We already have started seeds for our fall garden and greenhouse.

We are also adding some raised bed gardens to our farm…look for more on that this week.

On the home front

Our sweet family finally got to take a vacation to the beach. We had a blast: sand, sunburn and all.
It was lots of fun and I’m glad we got to go.

Back to school

These little stinkers start back to school and dance this week!

I hope you all are having a wonderful weekend! We will see you this week for the following posts:

New Uses for Old Things: herb plant pots

Back to school photo shoot tips

Lumber in my Minivan: repurposed raised beds

Have a wonderful weekend!

Weekend Projects: The cutest little playhouse EVER!

We spent the weekend building this super cute little playhouse from a kit.

Kidkraft Country Vista Playhouse $594

The directions were fantastic and they were easy to follow. We started by putting together the sides and frame.

The roof was by far the hardest to put together.

Once I finally figured out what I was doing wrong, the roof went on easily.

And lastly, I put the doors on. This part was hard, but once I figured out the hinges, they went on perfectly.

And then for funzies, I added a solar gooseneck light and an iron bell “doorbell.”

We are also going to dress it up with a paver sidewalk and some flowers. The girls are loving the little playhouse.

You should totally buy one for your kids!

Easy Spring Kids’ Crafts: “feet birds”

Quarantine isn’t as strict these days as it has been, but most of us are still spending more time at home where we are safest. Staying at home can mean it’s a lot harder to entertain the littles, so throughout March and April, I’ll be sharing a few spring kids’ crafts with you.

I know you must be wondering: what is a foot bird anyway? It’s exactly what it sounds like.

Paint the bottom of your child’s foot with your choice of washable paint. Then, simply freehand a roundish belly at the arch of the foot. Add little feet, an eye and a beak. You can add a little crest to the top of the bird’s head if you want.

These feet birds make a cute keepsake so you can remember when your littles were small, or you can give them to the grandparents.

…or frame them and decorate with them every spring.

Have a wonderful week! We will show you a great reuse and repurpose idea on Wednesday.
