Free Printable: Patch Earned Certificate

Happy Freebie Friday!!!
Here is a new certificate I just created for patches earned.  They are 8.5x11" PDF format and you can simply download, print, fill out the info, and tape the patch to the certificate for a special way to recognize the girls as they earn their patches!  Tip: removable glue dots work great on the back of the patch since she will want to remove it to iron it to her sash or vest. :)




Don't forget....I design custom certificates for sale in my Etsy shop! If you have a troop activity, school function, business event, volunteer appreciation, special recognition, sports banquet, etc., I'm happy to work with you to design something especially for your needs in a digital format that you print yourself!  Visit my shop and request a custom order!

My year of makeup and skin care purchases!

So I'm dyyyyyyyying to know how other women compare when it comes to cosmetic and skin care purchases!!!  The following pics, my friends, show the empty boxes from all my skin care and cosmetic purchases from the entire year of 2014. It does not include hair care (I'm lucky to have a sis who is a talented and generous hair stylist, so I get most all of my hair services and products for free!).

Wow, it looks like a lot to see it all in a big pile, doesn't it?!!!  
Luckily I get all of it at a huge discount  (one of the many benefits of selling the product!)! Also, I wear makeup and skin care each and every day.  There were maybe 2-3 days in the whole year that I didn't due to illness or a bad snow storm which kept me from leaving the house.  So this helps explain the volume...hopefully!!

And then I did a little sorting so I could record everything for tax purposes.  And I totaled the cost...yes, with an actual (GULP) dollar amount........   

The suggested retail cost of everything was
$1,208.50!!
I'm very thankful for my discount and my customers....without either of them, I may not be able to justify that heaping pile;)

Do you have a cosmetic brand that you are loyal to?

Is this a "normal" amount of makeup for one woman to use in a one year?

How often do you use skin care?

How often do you put on makeup?

The Not-So-Fashionable Mom

Valentine's Day, snow days, dances, Girl Scout cookies.....gosh, I had forgotten how crazy the month of February is!!!!  Here is what my family and I have been up to the past few weeks:


Mya's Valentines: Microwave Popcorn attached to cards I made:


Mason's Valentines:  A Thomas & Friends "Gordon" card with little candy trains (We only had to make 11, so I was willing to go overboard with his treats!!)

Valentine Gifts for the Kids:

Mya got socks, gel pens, notebook, stickers, and marshmallow pop:

Mason got gum, marshmallow pop, and some Chuggington trains: 

And this is my kitchen in the chaos of Valentine's Day (and pretty much how it looks at some point every day!!!):

Daddy/Daughter Dance!! (of course Mister had to get in one of the pictures!!)

Jim and I got to enjoy a nice dinner out on the day before Valentine's Day while my sister hosted her annual Cousins' Sleepover with the kids!! I forgot to snap a pic of us until we were outside leaving the restaurant!
Daddy and Mya with all her Girl Scout cookies!!!


Enjoy your weekend, my friends! Stay warm and safe out there!!! :)Jamie

Free Printable: Popcorn Valentine

It figures that I wait until the week of Valentine's Day to figure out what we're doing for the kids' Valentines!!!  The kids don't seem to really care (yet!) so I try to come up with something unique and personalized that's inexpensive. They usually go right along with my idea!  So after about an hour on Pinterest and Google, I settled on the microwave popcorn idea.  Mya's look like this, with each child's name personalized, and then I upload them to Walgreens Photo, use the 40% coupon code, and in about an hour they are printed for about $3.50!!  There is space at the bottom for her to write a message and her name.  Then we'll attach a bag of microwave popcorn.

Of course I have the printable image to share with you!!!;) 

Supplies needed: microwave popcorn, ribbon and bows, glue dots, and print the Valentine here

What are your kids doing for their Valentines this year???

Free Printable: Brain Unload!

I'm guessing I'm not the only one whose brain is cluttered with to-dos, tasks, projects, cleaning, cooking....etc...etc.?!!!!!!  Sometimes we need to just unload it all! It helps us to sleep better and worry less when we have everything on paper and not cluttering up our brains!  I originally titled this printable "Brain Dump," but it sounded too ugly, so here is a Brain Unload document! (Now if only we could have a document to magically do these tasks for us;))
