Back To School Photo Idea

So sometimes kids are not thrilled about returning to school in the fall, so getting a happy face for that photo can be hard. Or sometimes they are super excited and can’t be bothered to stand still long enough to get that pic.

I crafted this handy reusable photo prop for both situations.  Its a real chalkboard with vinyl sections. And it can be erased and used over and over (multiple students? new events? yearly?).

Just fill in the categories with chalk and have your student hold the sign.  Giving them something to hold usually fixes the “I don’t know how to pose” problem.  And they love filling in the all important information.  Check it out at my Etsy shop.

Back to the GRIND

Some of my grandchildren live in Georgia where they start back to school in less that two weeks!  This got me to thinking about all the teachers, school bus drivers, car poolers, and moms that are busy getting ready to go back to the grind.

Check out my fun way to help them ease into it with my coffee shop gift card holder. It is a sweet coffee pun that will make them smile, especially when you add their favorite coffee shop gift card.

Display some Parent LOVE

Mother’s Day is May 14! And Father’s Day is June 18.  Want to know how to celebrate both with one click of the button.  Check out my Etsy Shop for this cute tribute to your parental units.  Set on the mantle, bring to the party, display on bookshelf, or give as a gift.

I can customize the “Mom”  to suit your needs: mommy, nana, auntie, mema, etc.  And just think of the fun it will be when you get to “flip” it around for “DAD” (or papa, bumpa, uncle, etc.).  These sweet lil three blocks are reversible so you have it covered for both May and June. Awesome!

Pet LOVE

It’s beautiful weather here at the beach, just the time we like to take our pets out for some fresh air.  And what better way to show some pet love that with a new name tag.  I made these cute lightweight (and quiet) acrylic tags in several shapes.  And you get to chose color and font.  Check them out at my Etsy shop.  Oh and did I mention you can use them for zipper pulls on your pet carrier? or on your keychain?  gift for pet lover?

No pet you say, well since I produce the blanks myself, just let me know if you want a special shape.  Baby rattle with name for that new mom. Maybe your child’s favorite animal? Giraffe perhaps?  LOL

A Wee Bit of GREEN

Rumor in our family is that my mom was a wee bit of Irish (however, there is some questionable ancestry involving circus performers-lol).  Anyhow as long as I can remember, I was told I’m half Irish.  And on St. Patrick’s Day isn’t everyone? So here to help you are some items from my Etsy shop.

Shoot your family wearing some green. Use these awesome St. Patrick’s Day party props to update your Instagram or Facebook page. Bring to work on the 17th and make them smile. And for those family and friends far away, let them know you love them ‘a latte ‘with these St. Patrick’s Day coffee shop cards.  Just pop in a Starbucks green gift card and mail.

Never Late

It is a joke in my family on how I NEVER can stand to be late. Not for meeting folks late, not for getting to theater late, and definately not getting to a restaurant late.  LOL

But I realize we are not all me (thank goodness) and for those who might have let the pending Valentine’s day count down sneak up on you, I have the perfect gift idea.

You have till 2/7 to order, receive in mail, pop in gift card and get it mailed out to your sweethearts. Or if you are just handing them the card, you can even stall till 2/9. So you now have no excuse to be late with-gift-cardgetting the perfect gift!
