Friday Freebie: Blank Floral Invitation

My sister is getting married next month and I'm throwing her bridal shower. I put together these darling little invitations for the shower and wanted to share the blank version so you can add text for any occasion, a quote, whatever floats your boat.

Here is an example of what a bridal shower invitation would look like.


And here is the blank 5x7 file for personal use only. Watercolor floral images can be found at Angie Makes.

Polka Dot Facebook Cover Photos

Social media world can be a pretty negative place, but it doesn't have to be that way. I've been trying to create a positive social media presence and one thing I love doing is sharing some of my favorite uplifting quotes in my Facebook cover space. It's easy, quick, but I know it has the potential to share positivity with someone and that makes me feel good. And who doesn't like to feel good?

Share away!

Polka Dot Background

My baby boy is turning one in a couple weeks. I've never been a big fan of themed parties for little kids because they don't know what's going on anyway, so I usually stick with a few colors I like and keep it simple.

I put together this little polka dotted background and added text and font on top for the invite. I thought I'd provide the background for free and show an example of what you can do with it.

Happy partying!

Monthly Memorization: June

We just started a new tradition in our home - which I stole from my parents.

Every month when I was at home (and especially when I was homeschooled) we memorized a scripture and a quote of some kind. As we got older the verses got longer and the quotes turned into poems and passages. I didn't see the value in it when I was younger but now I realize that those memorization exercises were less about memorizing and more about teaching truth to our young hearts.

So, I wanted to start now as I focus on my little ones (3 and 1) and help them to have hearts that are soft and kind, and able to feel for others as well as themselves. And there's no better way to do that than by repeating often phrases and verses that will strengthen each member of our family and help us become better together.

Our command center has two clipboards for this purpose - I plan on changing them out every month as we work on different quotes and scripture verses. Feel free to join us!
