Happy Friday Friends!

This past week I have been focusing on this principle with my girls… Be Kind.

bekind

They seem to get at each others throat quite often these days… and I am having to emphasize that they need to be kind. So.. I have issued them a kindness challenge. They wrote it down on a piece of paper and it is their goal to do something kind for someone this week.

It is now Friday and I need to follow-up with them to see how the challenge went. I am hoping that they noticed a difference. As a mom… I am hoping… Pleasseee Pleaassse …Be kind to each other.

And since it is Friday  (I usually in the past wink-wink) have a Friday Font Love for you… and it is your lucky day… I have such a cute free printable for you.

  1. thoughts of her.
  2. chipotle.
  3. Heavitas.
  4.  Photographs.

I am so loving these new fonts… and really can’t wait to use them often… especially the Heavitas and Photographs font.

And… do you know that I LOVE that you can download these fonts onto your iPhone. I am loving that!

Here is a quick tutorial… if you don’t know already!

How to download a font to your iPhone through Phonto:

  1. Download the Phonto app.
  2. Go to your browser and type in Dafont or any other free font site.
  3. Push the download button and a screen should pop up that says open in… or open in Phonto. Click on the Open in Phonto Button.
  4. Once in Phonto go to fonts and under my fonts you should see the downloaded new font.
  5. Thats it… you did it.

 

Phonto is by far my favorite app. You can do so much in that app. It is not just a text app.. but you can adjust your size of photo’s, create photo’s, and so much more.

YES… I LOVe this App!

STEP 1: Get the app

FullSizeRender

STEP 6: Create whatever your heart desires… with the new amazing free font. Simply add the text and save the image.

Six simple steps that are FREE! I love several other sites that have such great combinations… but usually they are not free… this is something that I could choose whatever font I LOVE and have it right on my phone!

Sweet and Salty Holiday Chex Mix

Sweet and Salty Holiday Chex Mix

Hello Sweet Friends!

I know it has been a long time… I am sorry. No excuses… but I am excited to be back and share some holiday cheer with you today!

I am in charge of making a trail mix for our church sisters and this was the recipe that I found several months ago and have been saving it for the Christmas season. I spent yesterday buying all the ingredients and baking it in the kitchen. It smelled like Christmas. It tasted like heaven.

Today… I printed up the tags and bagged them up. This Sweet and Salty Chex Mix can be mixed up and you can add whatever else to it you prefer. I chose to leave out the raisins and or cranberries, but that would be good in it as well. Any dried fruit or chocolate would make it even better.

This is a good recipe for a salty treat.

This recipe is a great salty one. Grab a handful and munch down. It really is good to balance out all those sweets. I only added sweet to the title… because of the addition of the chocolate to it! You don’t have to add the chocolate. You could just keep it like the original recipe…but we all need chocolate this time of year right?!!

sweet and salty holiday chex mix

My favorite part…. the butter snaps pretzels with the baked salty sauce over it! The combination of the chex mix and other ingredients make it scrumptious!

Like I mentioned… I packaged them up in some bags, tied a scripture found in book of  Matthew around it with jute twine and cute red and green string. I think they turned out great!

mix

I put about three cups of the mixture into the bag and added some regular m&m’s, peppermint m&m’s, and some mint m&m’s. I just mixed them up by shaking the bag. Tied them up and there you have it… a great Sweet and Salty Holiday Chex Mix… aka my trail mix.

You could totally make this gluten-free as well…. if need be. Just buy gluten-free pretzels and don’t add the Wheat Chex mix or Chocolate Chex Mix. Just use regular Rice Chex. Add dried fruit and or other items that you prefer. { I want to make it that soon. }

mix-7

Here is the scripture if you want to print it off. I just printed it off on some cute Christmas paper on the back side. scripture

Holidays are not the same without some type of Chex Mix included!

Hope your holiday is sweet and salty!

Monster Trace Me Free Printable

I am trying really hard to do little activities with my two-year old. Today… we sat down with some new ultra fine point expo dry erase markers and had some fun tracing monsters. She loved it!  Which by the way… I am totally HAPPY for the new ultra fine point expo markers. They are amazing! This was a fantastic activity for her. She grabbed the markers and started tracing away. This will help her develop her hand eye coordination and fine motor skills.

Fast forward several hours later … and her sisters arrive home from school. They wanted to trace right away. In fact they couldn’t wait until I made one for them. They started tracing on the same one. It was rather hilarious!

monster trace me free printable

I think my girls sat down for like 1/2 hour or so and traced all the cute little monsters. It was so fun!

monster trace me free printable Here is the easy cute tutorial…

Monster Trac

By Carrie Perrins

  • free printable
  • clear transparent contact paper
  • expo markers
  • scissors and or paper cutter
  • paper towels

Print out free printable [ below ].  Then on a stable surface lay your picture right side up.  Measure and cut and 8 x 11 sheet of contact paper and lay over top. Starting at the top… peel off the backing really slow and lay over the top of the printable. Peel back evenly. Do small sections at a time, if needed.  Apply the contact paper to the top of the monster free printable. Press all the way down to the bottom. With scissors, trim the outside extra contact paper. PLEASE follow the directions on the contact paper… as it is very sticky and it must be put on very carefully… because as I found out the hard way… it does not come off. It will take ink and picture off. But…. trust me it is easy if you have used contact paper before. JUST GO SLOW.

free printable

To print just right-click on the above image and save it to your computer.

I have also included a pdf download… here monsterpdf.

I used contact paper because I found that it is easier to wipe of the dry erase markers. But… I am sure you could laminate it as well. Either way… tracing for hours. Be prepared.

I did notice that the black expo marker was the hardest to wipe off. I had to rub hard. But the rest of the colors wiped off really easy with a paper towel. Don’t you just love my two-year old’s tracing. She just scribbles!!

My girls loved this Monster Trace Me Free Printable.
