Spring is almost here

So it has been my experience that Spring Cleaning is really all about getting all that clutter that has accumulated since the holidays put away AND getting all the pollen out of the house (we have allergies).  And since we all do better with a list to remind us how to be more effective, I have extended my handy dandy dry erase boards (check out previous posts for my first batch).  A handy way to remember each month’s birthdays, or write down those “bucket list plans” when chatting with family, or let’s get the whole family involved and make some personalized chore lists.  Check out all these magnetic dry erase boards and more at my Etsy Shop ~ Everyday Holiday Shop



New Year List Making

Ok so most of you probably think of making new resolutions about dieting, exercising, and other painful thoughts. But I am here to help you with all those lists your making to get more organized. These magnetic dry erase boards will not only help you get your act together, they make great gifts too.

I especially am fond of the “Honey Do” board – lol. And everyone needs a place to jot “peanut butter” when the jar is empty.  Hello – February is right around the corner, and this board is PERFECT for letting them know just why they are wonderful.

Oh did I mention you can have have them personalized for you, your spouse, or other family or friend.  Check them all out at my etsy shop 

Easy Christmas Shopping!

Get your holiday list handy cuz I have just what you need to check it off. These four gift card holder cards will match everyone on your list. First for the coffee/tea drinkers I have my coffee shop gift card holders that mimic a coffee cup; second a handy tape measure one for that super handy guy/gal on your list; a sweet purse for that talented shopper (just need to think of her favorite store); and finally a family gift – movie passes. Check them all at my Everyday Holiday Shop.


Reading ‘Riting ‘Rithmatic

Of the three “R’s” we think of as back to school, I have to say writing is my favorite.  Lord knows it isn’t math. And by writing I mean making endless lists – – grocery, shopping, tasks, chores, etc.  So you can understand why I am excited to offer these super cute and very handy journals. The come in four yummy colors and are great for him or her.

Get a journal just for keeping your lists all in order, or maybe for keeping your secret passwords handy, or for jotting down all those great thoughts that come in the night. Food journal? Exercise log? Budget? well I think you get the idea.

I can personalize them with your fav phrase or you can choose one I have already designed.  Check them out at my Etsy shop today! Oh and did I mention they can fit nicely in someone’s holiday stocking?



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.
