I am a multi-tasker! My mom has always said that I am most content when my calendar is full and I have a million things to do. I like being able to cross things off my list and I can easily get bored (and lazy) if there isn’t something “to do”. I am always the one asking “what’s the plan” for the evening, weekend, or the holiday that is weeks away.


To say that my plate has been full lately would be an understatement!

You're One Smart Cookie Graduation Party

This cookie themed party would be perfect for celebrating the graduate who is a smart cookie or use this printable to make cookie jars to congratulate the graduate by saying: "you're one smart cookie!"  #StaterSnacks #ad #CollectiveBias
I decided to go to college seven years ago and this year I will finally (finally!) have my bachelor’s degree in Public Relations. It hasn’t been an easy road and my sweet husband has dealt with more tears and emotional breakdowns than I would like to admit, but I cannot wait to hold that precious (and expensive) piece of paper in my hands. I can't wait to celebrate never having to read another textbook or take a final exam - let's be clear, it is never too late to go to college, but it is a whole lot harder in your 30's if you do decide to go back. I will be throwing a graduation celebration after the commencement ceremony which will be followed by a weekend-long nap and a much anticipated EPIC crafting session.

I may have 14 weeks to go but young people all over the States are gearing up for graduation season. Kindergarten, middle school, high school, and college students will be getting ready to wear a cap and gown and hold their certificate or diploma. I think it is important to celebrate educational victories and accomplishments on any level and I asked Houston to whip up a cute "you're one smart cookie" printable for me.

Moms Like You Hold The Pieces Together

Do you remember being in elementary school and making presents for your parents in class? My parents had an endless supply of macaroni necklaces, clay sculptures, and countless drawings on paper plates. (I blame elementary school for my obsession with glue and glitter - they hooked me at an early age).

Well, Mother's Day is this weekend and I am in the crafting mood once again, but I figured I would have to come up with something new, since I am sure there is already a shoe box full of macaroni art and necklaces somewhere at my parent's house, and I turned to my graphic-designing-husband for some help.

Houston helped me turn our most popular printable from "Bosses like you hold the pieces together" to "MOMs like you hold the pieces together".

If you need a quick and easy Mother's Day gift, this printable is the perfect way to tell your mom that "Moms like you hold the pieces together"
