7 Sep
Chevron Halloween Eye Chart Pillow
You may know this about me —
I am a Halloween fanatic.
I get so excited when Fall hits!!!halloween eye chart printable chevron

I have loved seeing eye chart projects lately and I thought it would be so fun to make one for Halloween!! I made a Halloween Eye Chart Pillow for this spooky season, and then, just for fun I made a printable to share with YOU!

{and.. scroll down to the end to get the FREE **Printable** Eye Chart Files!!}
To make the pillow, this is what I did: 

5 steps
  1. I created the eye chart in my Silhouette Studio program.
  2. I flipped the lettering so that it was backward.
  3. I printed out the lettering on Heat Transfer Paper.
  4. I ironed the lettering onto white canvas.
  5. I cut out the chevron material – 1 inch longer in width and length than the pillow form.
  6. I pinned the lettered fabric to the chevron front panel and used a zig zag stitch to sew the pillow together.

Now I have a fun little pillow for this Spooky Season!!
And — I made a printable version to share with you!
All you need to do is click on the download button and you can print off a copy for your home.
And I included a little chevron just for fun!!  
You can choose between Orange or Grey.

Here’s the orange version:

And here’s the grey version:

PLUS, I have also included a way to print these off BIG!!
Here is a link to the .JPEG files — so you can send these down to Costco or similar and get them printed out in a BIG size!!

The one I printed fits PERFECTLY in an Ikea 19 3/4 x 15  1/2 frame (IKEA Ribba (200.783.33)). You can send the file down to Costco and they can print it up THE SAME DAY. It cost $6 to print!!!


Here’s the full collection of PDF printables, hosted on Scribd.
  Just click the download button to download the PDF. If you’re going to print these at Costco or some other photo processing shop, you might prefer to use the .JPG or .PNG files, linked below the Scribd files.

 Note that there are five (5!) versions. The first is a “fancy” version that includes all of the classic eye chart numbers and frippery.

The two 8.5 x 11 ones are above, and here’s the PDF version of the “fancy” one in 8.5 x 11. After that I’ve linked all the sizes in PDF, JPG and PNG.

If you don’t want to use the scribd links above, you can download the PDF versions to print at home using these links:
8.5×11 “Fancy” Orange PDF
8.5×11 Orange PDF
8.5×11 Gray PDF
(Bigger sizes won’t work for PDF)

 If you’re planning to print these at Costco or another photo printing place, I recommend you use these JPG files. Warning: they’re huge files, especially the ones for the large frames.
8.5×11 “Fancy” Orange JPG
8.5×11 Orange JPG
8.5×11 Gray JPG
Big Frame Orange JPG
Big Frame Gray JPG

 And if the JPG files aren’t working for you, you can also use these PNG file links instead. Warning: they’re fairly large files, especially the ones for the large frames.
8.5×11 “Fancy” Orange PNG
8.5×11 Orange PNG
8.5×11 Gray PNG
Big Frame Orange PNG

"Summer Social" Guest Project — Ideas to keep your kids busy this summer {and printables too}!

16 Jun
Hi Tatertots and Jello friends! I’m Mique from 30days. 
 I am a stay at home momma to three. 
I share creative ideas and tutorials on 30days and I co-own the Queen Bee  Market, a handmade market in San Diego with my talented sister.  
I absolutely adore Jen and am happy she let me share some ideas today.  

Summer has started at our house!  

Which means sleeping in (not), no schedules and a whole lotta time.  Without fail my kids are bored by the end of day one.  So I have a couple of ideas to have fun and keep some sort of structure.

I started doing a theme per week a couple of years ago. 

Before school gets out, I ask the kids what they would like to learn about.  In the past we’ve done: circus, animals, artists, our country, and everything in between.  I then plan activities, books, and worksheets around that theme. 
This year I made a simple printable and laminated it, added magnets on the back and stuck in on the fridge. Easy peasy.  

Last year I had a more elaborate activity board (that sadly was broken by our painters mid summer). 

Download your own Weekly Theme PDF
For personal use only please.

For example this week we’re focusing on Dads:
I print out age appropriate worksheets for my 3 kids:

My favorite free worksheet sites:

We then put all the worksheets into this little sorter:

 

It’s not all worksheets all the time. We have fun doing art, cooking and baking and going on outings around the theme too. 😉

 This year we’re also trying something new. 
I saw the idea to do mom bucks (idea originally from Diary of a Wimpy Kid) and created
family bucks. 

I used pretend money templates and added pictures of Josh and I to the dollars in Photoshop (you could use any editing program you want). 
After my kids complete their chores, they will have opportunities to earn a Mom Buck ($1) or a Dad Bucks ($5). 
I plan on catching them doing nice things (ie playing with their sibling nicely on their own) as well as asking them to do things to earn bucks.  The family bucks can be traded in for real money.  They can then use it for treats or whatever they choose (within reason). 

Hope you have a happy (peaceful) summer!

What great ideas, Mique!
I love the idea of having a theme each week with my kids this summer!! 
I just adore Mique and love her ideas – she makes adorable printables!!

{Cute as a Button Teacher Printable}

{I can’t decide which of her Rule The World printables I like best… They are all awesome!}

{And even more!}

{And print off a few of Mique’s bookmarks for your kids to use this summer!}

Be sure to follow 30 Days for amazing projects, tutorials and printables!
You will be glad you did!! 
xoxo
