The countdown to Halloween has begun! One of my favorite things to do around Halloween is watch Hocus Pocus. It’s my absolute favorite Halloween movie. Yes, I prefer the funny movies to the scary movies. I can do a little bit of scary but nothing too creepy. There’s this thing called sleep that I don’t get enough of and would prefer not to fill it with anything scary. My daughter’s five, I don’t know if she is quite ready yet for Hocus Pocus or would be interested in it but you better believe I will do my best to show her the ways of the Sanderson sisters. Hocus Pocus is really a great movie for any age(in my opinion). These fun Hocus Pocus party printables are perfect for a Halloween movie night with friends or kids. I made toppers and signs that you can get the free printables for below. I also made decorations that can be used for banners, centerpieces or hanging up. Get the printables below.
Thanksgiving is a great time to get together with all of your crazy family. That is why I made these funny free Thanksgiving printable wine labels and food tents. I think all families are a little crazy in their own special way. I say that as a term of endearment! I made some wine labels to bring to your crazy family because Thanksgiving is a time to drink wine with the family that makes you drink. I also made some fun food labels. It seems like everyone is into some food trend of eating gluten free, low fat, and tofurkey(I just like to say tofurkey). Thanksgiving is a time to put those eating habits aside. Eat all the fat, gluten, sugar and turkey that your heart desires. It is also a time to eat mom, grandma, dad, or grandpa’s famous food that you have been waiting all year to eat. No one makes food quite like family I know my mom and grandma’s food are my absolute favorite things to eat, it’s comfort food and I can’t wait to eat all of the food on Thanksgiving.
Being a mom can be really hard sometimes. Usually when I put my daughter in time out we both need a little time out. I love her more than anything but sometimes I need a time out! It’s funny how time out to kids is a punishment but as an adult a little time to just sit in the corner in peace sounds fantastic! That is why I thought it would be fun to make a little mom’s time out bag. Mom’s deserve a little “time out” break to just relax and take care of themselves. You can put whatever your mom or mom friends like in their time out bag. Little spa/beauty things, nail polish, wine, tea, chocolate, coloring pages and anything a mom might like for her “time out”. You can have a bunch of little bags at a mothers day party to give to a group of moms.
Today I have really easy bunny cupcake with printable ears for you! The printable ears are a little bit smaller than these since these ones were about as big as the cupcakes. These little funny bunnies are adorable and very simple to make for anyone. Perfect for Easter. All I have left to figure out is an Easter basket. I made these cupcakes as simple as possible because I know how busy everyone gets with Easter egg hunts, making food and everything else for Easter. The fun thing with the printable ears is you can use them for other crafts! Use them with pom pom craft balls and googly eyes(yes, I always have to suggest googly eyes). You could also put them in an apple or any fruit to get your kids to eat some fruit! The possibilities are endless.
I know Easter is still a ways away but I’m getting ready for it. I saw all of the cute decorations in the dollar section at Target and decided I have to start getting ready. I thought it would be fun if leading up to Easter I put some cute Easter things in my daughters lunch. I sometimes like to make little drawings and I’m sure I will do something cute with fruit(that she wont eat). Don’t worry I’m not the mom that makes cute things every day for lunch. I typically make a regular peanut butter sandwich and call it a day. I’m not making Keira’s food into masterpieces on a daily basis, who has time for that. I thought these free printable bunny drink sleeves would be an easy and cute touch to add to milks or juices. I’m definitely going to use them for lunches and for Easter. They are just so cute to put on drinks.
I’m definitely a fan of the ugly sweater craze and these ugly sweater koozies are perfect for an ugly sweater party. A lot of them I don’t even think are ugly just very festive and fun. About 5 years ago I could not find ugly sweaters anywhere for a party and had to make my own. I can’t sew at all so I think I glued some Christmas patches on a plain red sweater, gluing I can do. Now ugly sweaters are everywhere and a ton of people are having ugly sweater parties! I love that because adults need to dress silly and have fun more often. I made these little ugly sweater koozies with felt. Okay they are more just decorative sweaters but if you add some pants or felt around the bottom of the bottle they are koozies. Sometimes beer gets cold and needs a little sweater. You can also use the same template to make an ugly sweater garland using felt or Christmas color card stock paper!

If you’ve seen any of my Thanksgiving posts you know I can’t cook Thanksgiving food. I can make desserts and cute decorations that’s more my thing. This year I am making a side dish and even that intimidates me! I cannot tell you how many times I have ruined mashed potatoes. We are also doing Thanksgiving a little early to work with the families schedule so I really need to start figuring out what I can make. I did figure out how to make these cute turkey treat bags with free printable tags and that’s important too ;). These little turkey bags are really easy! You can stuff them with candy or non-candy options, whichever you prefer. Stickers, crayons or bubbles could be fun too. You can hand them out to kids in class. I think I will make some stuffed with fun little toys and crayons for the kids table at Thanksgiving. It is hard to get kids to sit through a big meal and activities always help :).
Fall is such a lovely time isn’t it?! It is a time for all things pumpkin. I love love all of the pumpkin stuff. I load up on all things pumpkin. Pumpkin bread, lattes, spice, and pies. Then by the end of pumpkin season I feel like I never want to see anything pumpkin ever again. By the time fall comes around the next year I am ready for it again! I made some fall printables to show my love for fall. Pumpkin spice and everything nice! I also made a Hello, Fall one and you can grab them down below. Whichever one tickles your fancy. I know not everyone is into the pumpkin spice. I personally have come around to love it, but that wasn’t always the case. When I first tried a pumpkin spice latte I wasn’t a fan. Now I can’t get enough. It’s like when you hear a song and think what is this terrible assault on my ears. Then after the tenth time you are humming along. After the twentieth time you are full on car dancing and loving it! It only took me about twenty pumpkin spice lattes to really fall in love. I’m kidding it was really only about five.
How fun is this glow in the dark Halloween printable?! I’m getting so excited for Halloween! Every year we go trick or treating on Halloween like many of you with kids do(or the ones without kids, why can’t adults get candy too?!). I may not be a kid anymore(just at heart) but I get really in to Halloween and love to dress up. Last year my daughter wanted to be a ghost and I got her the cutest ghost costume from Etsy. I thought it would be fun for her dad and I to dress up like Ghost Busters with our little ghost. By the way her dad and I aren’t together but we still dressed up together for Halloween with our daughter because we all love Halloween. We are either really weird or doing a good job at the co-parenting thing(most of the time).
Having a kid makes me very nostalgic. I love watching the older Disney movies with my daughter that I loved when I was a kid. I also love all of the music. My daughter Keira could do without me singing along to all of the songs but I can’t help it! A dream is a wish your heart makes is my favorite song from Cinderella. The words still ring true as an adult. Adults don’t listen to their dreams and hearts as much as children. I definitely have been working on recapturing some of myself and childlike spirit. My daughter has brought that out in me a lot and it really is the best to re-experience some of the joys of childhood through your child. OK enough of the cheesiness, I told you I get nostalgic! This Cinderella printable is great for a bedroom decoration or a Cinderella party. Maybe next to the pretty Cinderella slipper cupcakes ;), if you haven’t seen them yet check them out so much sparkly goodness! I put one of these printables in my room and in my daughters room. I have not seen the new Cinderella movie but it is on my list to see. I absolutely love the dress with all the butterflies, my daughter got a new Cinderella dress. This is her third Cinderella dress that is how much she loves the character. The first Halloween that Keira got to choose her own costume she dressed up as Cinderella.
