I Love You Cards

I wanted to share a really fun activity that we did as a family last year on Valentine’s Day.

My husband and I were looking for a way for our girls express more love to each other. So I sat at my computer and made these cards that say “I love you,” and then printed enough so that each of us would be able to write a personal note to every other member of the family. (For our family of five, that meant printing a total of 20 cards.)

Free Valentine’s Day Bingo

Valentine’s Day is a big day for my kids.

Sure, Christmas is bigger and better, but at my kids’ school, it’s all about Valentine’s Day and Halloween. In fact, I don’t think they did anything special for Christmas except watch a movie (but don’t worry, we more than made up for it at home ☺).

Because I know how kids love Valentine’s day, I wanted to give you a Bingo game that is colorful, fun, free, and not too hard on your paper and ink supply.

Free Valentine’s Day Sewing Cards

I loved to feel like I was “sewing” when I was kid.  I enjoyed cross-stitch and I tried to hand-sew pieces of fabric together to make little bags.

I am sad to admit that I never developed a talent or love for sewing. Like, real adult sewing. You know, with a sewing machine. I wish I could do big, awesome sewing projects, like making my own curtains or sewing all my kids matching Easter dresses. Alas, I more of a button-sewer and that’s about it.

“Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? …

“For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come,

“Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord” (Romans 8:35, 38–39).

Love Quote Printables

I only share the printables that I love. And honestly, I have a folder of printables on my desktop that may never see the light of day. It’s not uncommon for me to start a project and then walk away if I am not satisfied with the design or where it’s going. But these love printables are another story!

I am always inspired by love, and love is in the air! ♥

Free Valentine’s Day Matching Game

Valentine’s Day is one of my favorite holidays. It’s such a bright and colorful holiday in an otherwise dreary season. It’s already been a long winter here in Utah, so Valentine’s Day is a welcome splash of color and fun.

Like all holidays, Valentine’s Day is a magical time for kids. There are pretty treats, fun games, and cute cards. I love the abundance of good chocolate on the shelves and beautiful flowers in every grocery store. It’s a lovely thing!

Free Valentine’s Day Coloring Pages

I have always loved coloring.  When I was a kid, opening a new box of crayons or markers was the best feeling on earth. It felt like a world of possibilities and fresh starts. I could create anything and make it however I wanted. I see that same love in my kids and all the kids around me. There is something so special and energizing about the creative process and creative freedom.

Free I Spy Valentines Printable Game

Valentines’s Day is such a fun holiday!

I remember being in elementary school and meticulously decorating my valentine box.  I wrote my valentines with great care and I loved crossing every name off my class list as I finished their valentine. I remember the excitement and anticipation of our class party and running home to show my mom all the treats I got. Now I see my girls getting just as excited for Valentines’ Day, and I love it.

Free Jane Austen Quote Printables

I have vivid memories of the first time I was introduced to the works of Jane Austen.

I was a freshmen in college, and I was really homesick. My sweet Aunt Leah and Uncle Mike invited me to spend a long weekend with them in a neighboring state. They picked me up, drove me the four hours to their lovely apartment, and spoiled me with microwave caramel popcorn and the BBC version of Pride and Prejudice.

That night I fell in love. I fell in love with the movie, with Mr. Darcy, and the whole storyline. It was so romantic and witty. It was everything that a romance should be. And let’s be serious, Colin Firth had that whole brooding hero thing down pat.

Easy & Delicious Cheese Ball

Cheese balls are very important to my husband. Whenever I want to make his day (or his month), I make him a cheese ball.

He grew up eating them, especially during the holidays. Whenever we get together with his family for Christmas or New Years Eve, there is always a cheese ball sitting on the counter. It’s a lovely tradition, don’t you think?

Free Christmas Bingo Printable Game

Bingo is definitely a family favorite around here.

I love it because it’s fun, easy, and doesn’t require a lot of mental work on my part. I am sad to say that games that require a lot of mental strategy or exertion are not really my cup of tea right now. (I’m looking at you, chess!) I save all my mental strength for dinner and my 3rd-grader’s homework. Sigh. Such is life, right?

Cookie Cutter Fudge Gift (+ Free Tags)

I first heard about the idea of gifting fudge in a cookie cutter several years ago from my Aunt Jeannie. She told my mom that she loved to put fudge in a cookie cutter, and then give it to her friends as gifts during the holidays.

This is brilliant for so many reasons. First of all, the fudge. Fudge is such a great gift. It’s totally delicious and decadent. You can make it large batches and it’s pretty easy to make. It’s awesome.
