Beat the HEAT

Wow it has been sooooo hot here (and I live at the beach) so what’s the best solution? Air conditioning of course.  So we usually head to our favorite cool movie theater.  It has food, beer, stadium seating in those awesome loungers, candy, flavored popcorn and did I mention draft beer?  LOL Anyhow, I was thinking it would be a great idea to give the gift of cool movie time to others.  Just pop in a movie theater ticket (you can buy them online or in any store; grocery, target, etc) in my cute popcorn box greeting card and you have the best birthday, anniversary, end of summer, back to school gift ever.  It’s the perfect gift for that hard to buy for relative. A great thank-you to your summer carpool friend who dragged your kids to the beach with hers. And the best gift for that dog – cat -house sitter while you were on vacation friend. Check it out in my Etsy shop.

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.
