Menu Planning Printables

I created these at the beginning of the year and have been using them and loving them all year...only problem is I thought I had shared these before but apparently had not!

Home Organizer Cover Page

I have really neglected my duties in regards to linking up my Home Organization/Family Planner binder pages. I will try and catch up! Here are 2 options for a 8.5x11 (jpeg) binder cover that you can print at home.

Pallet Sign Tutorial Part 2 {stencil}

 Hey Ya'll, I am back with a little update on my pallet wood sign tutorial. I have had a lot of questions sent to me and so I thought I would address them all at once. :)
As I mentioned, I made a stencil with cardstock on my 12x12 mat with my silhouette. (I am going to attempt to share a link to my silhouette stencil file I made...but no guarantees it will work!) It was a little tedious figuring out the sizes, not to mention I am NOT a wiz at this silhouette thing. I have really only used it here and there. Anyways, I want to share with you how I went about making my stencil. I know there are probably much better ways to do this...but this is how I went about it. :)

Pallet Wood Sign

I have been dying to make a pallet wood sign for a while but I wanted the perfect saying. Something that would be positive and mean something to our family as we walked past it each day. I was perusing the wood connection blog  (I used their cute frames for my gallery wall) and they did a wood sign project with this saying and it struck me like a ton of bricks. It was
PERFECT!  Exactly what I was looking for. So I got busy and went to work.

Simple Gallery Wall

I have had a blank wall behind our couch for over a year now. It's been driving me crazy but I just haven't been able to decide what to do with it. Finally I decided to do a gallery wall. With loads of inspiration from pinterest, I went shopping.

Family Sign {handpainted}

Those of you who are following me over on facebook already saw a sneak peak of my gallery wall. I am almost finished up and can't wait to post the reveal. I have been working on it all summer! I tend to have trouble making decisions. Anyways, in the middle of the pictures I wanted a family saying. Here is what I came up with. {Together we make a FAMILY}. I first painted my wood board (I have this routered edged board for a while) a flat white paint. Then I cut out a stencil with my sillouette on cardstock.
