Keep Calm & Watch Conference!


Hello, dear friends!!  

It's finally April and time for the Spring Sessions of LDS General Conference!  This session... I've decided to delay the release of the quotes I design.  Since I've been doing these collections, Easter and Conference haven't coincided together like they do today.  Last night, stress overcame me greatly as I tried to focus on prepping our holiday traditions (cooking, eggs, baskets + Conference)... yet looming in the background like a crash to my party was also the stressful desire to work on quotes.  Oh, if there were only 50 hours in a day!  So, I made a decision last night to give this weekend to my family.  Designing a complete set of quotes as I've done in the past is a 12 hour project and I just couldn't rob my family of that time on such a special day, a day meant for personal reflection of our Savior and his Resurrection.

I will get to them though... please know that my note taking certainly won't cease and my notebook is already full of amazing quotes and powerful reminders.  I have several outside commitments in the coming weeks - so my goal will be to have them out within the next month or so.  It's my hope that when I do put them out, they'll be a sweet reminder of the things you learned and felt this weekend.  For updates and to watch for them to be released, be sure to follow on FB or Instagram... then check back here as well.  

For past Conference Quote posts on my blog, click {HERE}.


Much love...

A New Print + POTTER PACKS!


I love, love, love collaborating with other awesome bloggers!!  This time I was asked to design a print for Staci Potter's April Potter Packs!  What's a Potter Pack you ask?  It's a fun monthly package filled with gift/craft items hand picked by Staci!  If you live in Utah, you probably know Staci from her monthly craft segments on Studio 5 with Brooke Walker.  Her ideas are original and fun... and she has a great eye for detail and color!  Then this past November, she started pouring that creativity into these monthly packs.  Her packages are always a surprise, but typically include a printable, a seasonal item, a yummy treat, a small craft and a cute something to wear (like earrings or a necklace, socks or scarf).  You can grab a pack for yourself - or order one as a gift and she'll ship it to your friend (great birthday idea, by the way)!!  She usually doesn't sneak peak any of the contents, but made an exception with my print since the quote was inspired for Autism Awareness Month.  To grab a pack and follow Staci's fun crafting ideas... all of her links are below:


If you'd like to buy her cute Potter Pack for April (which includes this 8x10 print), visit THIS POST on her blog to order.  Then... be sure to follow her on IG or watch the hashtag #POTTERPACK so you can see customer photos as they open their boxes to reveal all of the other contents!  Fun, huh!! One last point to mention... she only makes a LIMITED number of packs each month - once they are gone, they are gone - so don't hesitate if you want to give it a try!  I already ordered mine!! ♥


Of course, this print is now also available in my shop.  I made it up in a bunch of sizes, perfect for many ocassions.  I love this quote - it's an uplifting reminder that although we all face storms, there are rainbows among the clouds!  A perfect sentiment for someone you want to show care, support and encouragement.


Have a great day!

EASTER M&M Legend - Free Printable!




My most popular and most downloaded printable of all time is my M&M Nativity Legend Poem and so I decided to create and write a new one for Easter!!  Simply print, trim and give with Easter colored M&M's.  Put them in a special bag or just attach a "fun size" bag of M&M's to the tag.  It'll make a perfect Easter Basket treat, Church handout or Easter favor for friends and family.

The first verse and original concept of the poem was written by Pam Ridenour... however, the rest of the poem (the following 6 verses) were written by yours truly. :)

NEW Easter Bottle Cap Images!!



This super-cute collection was inspired not only by my new Easter KISS Printables - but by many of you who immediately requested bottle cap images after you saw the kisses!  I love it!!  I'm Bottle-Cap-Crazy, so it wasn't like you had to twist my arm. ;)  Personal tidbit... since we are raising chicks at our house, the chickie necklace is my FAVE!!


If you haven't tried making these yet - you REALLY should!!  They are super easy, very fast and you can put one together in less than a minute!  I buy my bottle caps and epoxy stickers from Fizzy Pops - best quality around... and I like to buy in bulk, not only to save - but so I have a nice stash of bottle cap supplies on hand for whenever I need a quick gift. You can print your 4x6 as a photo at a photo lab - or I typically print mine using glossy photo paper that I buy at the Dollar Store and make sure my printer is set to it's BEST quality print setting.

Here's what you'll need... 

1) BOTTLE CAPS {I keep a box of zipper pulls, key chains and necklace on hand}  
2) EPOXY STICKERS {In case you are wondering, I have hundreds of these joyful dots}
3) E6000 GLUE {I prefer the tiny tubes... but that's just me}
4) 1" ROUND CRAFT PUNCH {Find them at any craft store, online or on Amazon}
5) IMAGES {From my shop, of course! Check HERE}

NEW EASTER IMAGES: HERE


Of course, if you are up for a bigger project... adding beads is a fun way to go.  I recently did a bead tutorial on my blog - if you are interested in learning how or would like some basic tips... take a peak HERE.  However you decide to make them - they'll make a very cute Easter treat!

Have a great day!
