As soon as the sonographer told us we were expecting our second baby girl (or third if you throw our canine daughter into the equation), I immediately began thinking about her nursery! Okay, maybe not “immediately”, as I was first and foremost overcome with excitement and joy to think of getting to be a mommy to yet another precious baby girl (I LOVE raising little ladies, a.k.a. “best friends”). With that said, I would be lying if I said I wasn’t pinning ideas into my baby girl’s nursery board by the end of that very same evening!
More times than not, moving is an emotional time. You are leaving behind a home that often times has many memories tied to physical objects. Within those walls you may have brought your child home from the hospital. On that staircase, your teenager may have posed for their high school dance portraits. In that backyard you may have celebrated your retirement party. Whatever the association, the physical appearance of the front of that home may forever hold a special place in your heart. Or at least I knew this was the case for my family…
This year for the holidays I knew I wanted to craft a special gift for my daughters and nieces. A gift that could be considered a game or toy, but that could also be considered a quieter activity (what parent doesn’t love some quiet time… am I right?!). I brainstormed for a while but kept being drawn to the idea of a game. It may just be the occupational therapist in me, but I am all about visual learning and fine motor activities that can be incorporated into play time. This is when I decided to create a personalized memory game!
January is almost here! (How is that even possible?!) Do you have your calendar printed and ready for your most organized year yet? If not, do not fear because I have created FREE monthly calendar printables for you to enjoy! This year I have designed two sets of calendars– black & white and watercolor themed.
