Hello Spring! Who else is sooo happy for this season? For our family it means it’s time to start getting the garden ready, clean out all the Winter layers from the closets, and enjoy more time outside. It’s also the time of year where all the pretty flowers are starting to make an appearance (I’m watching my lilac tree like a hawk waiting for it to bloom) and whenever possible, bring them home to enjoy indoors in amazing-smelling bouquets. I love that this season brings a bright and refreshing vibe after all the coziness of Winter, so to celebrate this beautiful time of year I’ve created two free printables to welcome Spring.
Welcome the season with a pretty Spring Printable!
Pick from two colour options for this Spring printable to suit your mood and home: grey for a more new neutral look and watercolour blush for a pop of colour. All you have to do is click, print + enjoy! Scroll to the end of this post to download the PDF of the colour you want to print and choose a pretty frame to display it in. Does it get any easier than that?
Tip: To save on ink, instead of printing at home, order these as an 8″*10″ photo print from your favourite local store (Staples, London Drugs, etc). You can also scale these down to fit smaller frames, just adjust the size when you go to print/ order prints.

Put the finishing touch on your holiday gifting with these cute printable Christmas cards!
Whether you’re at the end of your Christmas to-do list or just getting started, these printable Christmas cards are a sweet addition that you can print right at home! Pick your favourite set or print both, they’re perfect to give to family, friends, teachers… everyone who’s on your nice list this year! Add some fun and cheer to any gift, or insert a gift card (or some cash) for sweet all-in-one gifting.
It’s as easy as click, print + trim!
Each set contains four festive designs plus inserts if you want to add a little extra detail to the inside (or use as envelope labels). Tip: if you want to print multiple sets, upload the PDF file to Staples or another print centre website to save you from using up all your printer ink. I printed mine on a mid-weight paper, but opt for cardstock if you want something a little more sturdy.

Get into the spooky spirit with this easy Halloween DIY!
T minus 1 week until Halloween and if your house is anything like ours, the kids have been counting down the days for weeks. It’s safe to say we’re all looking forward to October 31 and we’ve had some fun decorating around the inside and outside of our house plus enjoying some Fall/ Halloween activities, including making a few DIY Halloween decorations (check out this DIY Ghost Garland from last year). We avoid the scary stuff since the kids are still young, but we load up on pumpkins, bats, and spider webs and this year we added this DIY Halloween decoration using a branch and some spray paint.
All you need are 3 materials to make this creepy DIY Halloween decoration that’s great for inside or outside
black spray paint
twigs or branches with leaves trimmed off
optional: crows, spiders, or other creepy creatures
1.Start by trimming your branch of excess leaves, etc and brushing off any loose bark and dirt.
2.Give branch 2- 3 coats of black spray paint, allowing to dry between coats. If you prefer, you can skip adding in creepy creatures and keep the branches unadorned.
3.When dry add in any creepy creatures that you like. I found some fake crows at our local dollar store and perched them on the branches, wiring them on. Easy! A glue gun or black pipe cleaners would also work.
I only made one of these for outside our front door, but love the idea of creating a mini-forest in our front yard along our walkway or making smaller ones for a Halloween party table.
Tip: Secure your branch(es) in a pot or other container to hold upright (sand, soil, or gravel work well). If you’re making a smaller, tabletop version, place branches in vases for a party table backdrop or centerpiece.

Ok, we all know Easter baskets are the classic when it comes to holding all those Easter treats (see this post for more Easter gifting ideas), but how cute are these little bunny bags as a twist on the classic for Easter parties? If you need a last minute idea for when the Easter Bunny comes or want to hand out treats for Easter, these little bunnies take minutes to make and are perfect for popping in all those Easter egg hunt finds or giving away fully loaded with Easter treats.

Say Happy Valentine’s Day with these cute candy heart printables! Inspired by the cute sweets, these hearts make cute Valentine’s cards to give out at school, or you can use them for decorations. I’ve created two versions that you can choose from or mix-and-match: one set with words and one without/plain, so you can leave them blank or personalize yourself. All you have to do is click, print & cut out! Hand these out by themselves or pair with some sweet treats.
Tip: Print on cardstock instead of regular paper to use as Valentine’s cards. I sent mine to Staples to print and they cost less than a set of kid’s Valentine’s from the store
