FREE Graduation Printable!!

Can you believe school is over...or almost over? The year has gone super fast!! Well, with moving and switching schools for the kids right at the beginning of the 4th quarter it has seemed to go even faster than normal. It is tough to switch schools and curriculum at the end of the year but my kids were rock stars and they made it work. We told them to focus on getting to know some friends, the teachers and routines. We wanted them to do their best but we made sure they knew we weren't too worried about their grades. 

I made a printable for the graduate in your life. It would be appropriate for a high school or college graduate. Use it as wrapping paper or frame it as their gift. And even if you already gave them their gift, this is FREE and a good encouragement for those who are starting new journeys!! We all love a little real MAIL don't we? So send your graduate some mail with this inside!! The download link is under the photo.


Download the printable HERE


I also have a couple of printables over on my blog. Feel free to go check them out and download them as well!

Easy Paper Straw Mini Easels

Miss P turns five TOMORROW! How can that be?
We had her art party on Sunday with her friends and I actually didn't make my normal amount of decor for her party as I usually do but I did make these cute little easels to hold mini canvases as name tags.


These are quick and easy and only require a few supplies. 

Here's how you can make some for yourself.

 Supplies:
-Scissors
-Paper Straws
-Hot Glue Gun
-Mini Canvases (bought these at Wal-Mart)


 You will use two straws per easel.
Begin by cutting the straws so you have two 4 in. pieces, and then two 3 1/2 to 3 3/4 in. 

Glue the 4 in. pieces at the end so they create an upside down V.

Next, glue one of the shorter pieces on top of the V pieces and now it looks like the letter A.
This piece will be what the canvas sits on.

Lastly, glue the last short piece to the back of the V where the other two piece meet. Center it right in the center of those two pieces.
You easel should lean back slightly so your canvas doesn't slip off the little ledge.

And that's it!! 

Perfect mini easels for fun mini paintings!! 

Stay tuned next week for a full party recap post! :)
