{Free Printable} Sweet Valentines Box

Valentines is coming up! I'd like to share something with all of you who decided to follow me - I am very grateful and appreciative! So, here is my gift to you - something sweet for all you sweeties!

 It's a printable Valentines Day box that you put candy inside. It could be a great craft for you and your child(ren) to do together and give to his or her or their classmates. Heck! You could give it to who ever you want.

Scroll down below and pass these pictures to get this printable.

Materials Needed:
  • Printer
  • Scissors
  • Tape or Glue.... 
  • Candy or what ever treats you would like to put inside!.... That's it!
 Here it is printed out...

Oh, and you need something to write with... pen or pencil to fill this part in. I know it would be more sentimental if your name was in there somewhere.

Start cutting away, edges only!

It should end up like this...

Now, start folding away...then assemble the paper into a box shape. It should be pretty easy for you to figure it out.

Tape or glue where ever is necessary to hold the box together.

I wrapped the candy in some left over wrapping paper. It worked great!

Dump it in...

Here it is again, so cute right!?

One more thing, the file you will be allowed to receive is a bit different from what you are seeing here because I made a few changes after I took these photos. Can you guess what the difference is?

Ok, one more thing... I am giving you TWO to choose from.

This one works great for giving to classmates, and friends.
This one is best for loved ones.

 Thank you,
-Beca, Mrs. Madam

Why am I giving these for free you ask?
The answer is simple. I love creating digital art and would hate not having any purpose or reason for making them. I want to give what I can.

Is there anything I want in return?
Yes, I would love to see pictures of how you used them. Really do. It will make my day.
Also, if you post it on your blog I would appreciate it if you let your readers know where you got them.

Thanks again,

    {Free Printables} Colon Cancer Awareness

    (Includes: Cupcake Tags, Thank You Cards at 4.5 x 3.5 , Fill-in food labels at 4.5 x 3.5, and cupcake wrappers)

    I was asked by this lovely lady to make a colon cancer awareness printable - similar to my breast cancer awareness design. I was very happy to do so and wished I thought of it sooner. So, further down the road I hope to create all the other cancer awareness's into party ready printables!

    Surprise a loved one who has Colon Cancer by perhaps baking them some cookies which include these cute tags. Remind them how wonderful they are to you!

    Oh! and I would love to feature or see your pictures of how you used them!

    P.S If you need these in some other way, i.e printable flags, colon cancer invitation, etc... don't hesitate to ask!

    Get them here!

    {Free Printables} New Years Printables - My first contribution to Operation Shower!

    I finally got around to finishing my first set of printables to a wonderful organization called Operation Shower! 

    As a proud military wife myself I greatly appreciate such an organization! You can head on over to their website to find out more in detail what it is all about, but to sum it up for you here is a quote from their site, "OPERATION SHOWER is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that honors the sacrifices military families make by producing and coordinating unit-wide baby showers and "showers in a box" for pregnant or expecting military families in a deployment or high stress situation".

    It such a great way to give back to military mommies right!

    To download these FREE printables click ME!

    As I hope to help this organization grow I expect that my Free New Year Printables would be able to assist! Please help me get the word out and share my printables so people could become aware of Operation Shower.

    Here is how you could help support and make Operation Shower an even greater success!
    1. Make a donation! 
    2. Or you can volunteer!
    3. Tell EVERYONE you know about Operation Shower, it's a great conversation starter.
    4. Blog about it, have it as your Facebook status, Tweet it, or use some other means where you can tell all about it!
      You may use these links to link your followers:

        Let us help make military families feel like they are right at home!

    {DIY} Child name in Candy Cane

    I wanted to break away from the traditional candy cane "shape" and at the same time I wanted it to be memorable for my daughters. I came across this site which contributed to the idea! I have included instructions below...

    The process is quite simple, but I highly recommend using some kind of glove to protect your fingers as you shape the heated canes. Luckily, I bake and have burned my fingers numerous of times, so I think they have built up some kind of resistance to the heat.

     Here is the finished product. I had to heat two candy canes at a time to get one or two letters done. It is better to do that way because they harden fast!!

    Hhmm, now if only my daughters knew how to spell their names. Well, the eldest kinda does - she's only 3 years old so you can imagine what I mean! LOL. If you don't the other two are ages 2yrs and 1yr. Enjoy, and I'd love to see pictures!

    1 - 2 boxes of candy canes, any color ( depending on the number of names needed).
    Parchment Paper
    Knife, if necessary
    Cookie Sheet

    1. Preheat oven to 250 degrees.
    2. Remove the candy from its plastic!
    3. Break Candy Canes into pieces or you can leave it as is. However, cutting into them is no fun after its been heated. The more you do it - the more you will learn which method works best for you!
    4.  Place onto parchment paper on a cookie sheet.
    5. Pop it into the oven for 10 minutes.
    6. Pull them out and shape accordingly.
      That's it, simple right?!

    Ella's Garden Fairy Birthday

    Our second daughter, Ella, turned two! So, this is a late post! Her party was a huge success - SO ENCHANTING! I wanted an unusual party, something that will definitely express that it was for her to enjoy. Despite her young age and the possibility that she won't have memories of it we can rely on the photos for her to admire. Here is our fairy biting into white chocolate from the cake her Nina Laura got for her!

    We would like to thank those who helped by setting up the decorations, those who brought food (very unexpected), and everyone who shared this special moment with us. Also, the few who phoned us to let us know that you weren't able to attend and to give the birthday girl a hug for you, thank you and thank you!

    I designed this dessert bar with the idea that every dessert had to have a speck of pink. I am happy with the turnout. I am even more pleased with the cupcake stand my husband was so willing to make for me! Isn't it just lovely. Oh, that toadstool looking thing is the cake I made for the birthday girl. I would love to make it again and again!! I was also the photographer, not a professional, but definitely working at becoming one since I am a mom who loves to take pictures!

    Here is a better picture ... BTW, I didn't realize that the antenna's of the worm on top of the toadstool had slid downward. I am assuming that it is because of the Guam heat! Ggr. Also, you can't really notice from this image, but a few things on the cake sparkled - kinda like pixie dust. Lovely. =D

    I made the wands and tutu's....very fun!
    Altogether, the little girls went home with

    * fairy wings
    * a tutu
    * fairy dust
    * fairy pail
    * wand

    I ordered these wings at Halo Heaven, their website gives you the opportunity to mention what date you need your items by! I love this feature.

    I love the look of the fairy dust. It applies like body glitter! Everyone had fun applying it to each other!

    We did have little boys at the party, so I made little elf hats out of felt for them because I was sure their parents would not agree with them dressing up in tutu's. They also received little pails with random favors. Here's is my nephew modeling the hat for us!

    Here are the girls on their treasure hunt game and the pinata! They had to find and pick up the daisies!!

    And here are the three fairies who are the inspiration for this blog! The sun was a little harsh on their eyes
