Hi! This is Sharon from Lemon Squeezy. The free download I made this month makes a great birthday or Christmas gift for any child in your life. My daughter and I were talking recently about difficult things in life and how they still can be done, even though they are hard. She then told me that her teacher last year had a sign over their board that said “I can do hard things” as a reminder to the students that they can, in fact, complete things and overcome obstacles they face. It was really inspiring to me, especially since my daughter remembered it from last year so it must have affected her. Check out what I made as a result of our talk:
This is Sharon again from Lemon Squeezy, and this month I water-colored a quote that I love. Duke Fergerson is a retired professional football player and said this during an interview back in 1988, which was originally advice from his mother. I’m going to put this inspirational quote up where my kids will see it a lot and hopefully it will be something they always remember.
Hi! It’s Sharon from Lemon Squeezy again, and this month I have a free desktop wallpaper download. I love clutter-free and simple computer wallpapers (it helps me see all the files and folders in a more organized fashion), and I love mid-century modern. There’s nothing better than having a fresh desktop staring back at you, especially when your email inbox is the exact opposite.
This is Sharon from Lemon Squeezy, and today’s download is more of an Easter craft with a side of download. This is a really simple activity that both my 4 year old and my 10 year old love to do.
If you’re in the habit of reading, then you’ll probably appreciate the free printable I created to share with you today. It’s not only useful, but it’d also make a great gift for any book-lovers you know.
Hi all! It’s Sharon back again for another fun year with ‘Or so she says…’ I’m looking forward to visiting with you all each month and sharing ideas I hope you’ll be able to put to use in your own home, family and life.
I’ve had this on-going goal of compiling a list of questions and answers from my kids around each of their birthdays so I could remember all the cute little quirks they have. Well now that I have three birthdays to remember…this never happens. So to solve my little problem, I decided that just once a year I would ask them questions, and this way I’m much more likely to remember to do it. So, starting this year, every January I’m going to fill out this year in review printable I created for each of my kids. I tried to make almost all the questions apply to most ages, it works for my 10, 4, and 1 year old twins.
Hi everyone, Sharon here again from Lemon Squeezey. I’m happy to be visiting ‘Or so she says…’ today with a free printable thank you card that you can download for personal use.
I drew this ‘Thank You’ card just this week and am really happy with the whimsical style. For best results, print it on card stock and use a 3.5″ x 5″ envelope and you’ll have a perfect thank you card. I created two different color schemes to choose from- a pink/blue combo or a green/blue combo.
My daughter somehow got a hold of a doorknob hanger from a hotel that says “I need some me time,” and she has had it on her doorknob for the past month and loved it. Of course I decided it is time to make my own doorknob hangers for my little kids!
This printable has two sides; one for when your kids are sleeping, and one for when they’re just hanging out in their rooms. This can be printed on cardstock or even regular paper if it’s all you have on hand.
Hi! It’s Sharon from Lemon Squeezy, happy to be joining you again this month on ‘Or so she says…’ I’m back with a couple free snail-mail printable cards that you can download. I love a simple card to mail to a friend or attach to a plate of cookies.
You can download one of these cards and print on card-stock. They fit A2 size envelopes which you can find online or at a paper store like xpedx.
I made two different cards, a “Thank You” and what you could call a “just because” card. Each has two color palette choices because sometimes I just can’t decide which colors I like best, so now you get both!
Now that summer is here, I’ve decided that it is time to organize my kids’ chores. I was inspired to make this chore chart printable after seeing some fancy ones online. For those ones you had to buy and cut sheet metal, make semi-complicated magnets, buy a frame, and also find a place to hang the frames. So, I thought of a much simpler solution (and you only have to buy one inexpensive thing), and I made THIS free download that you can use on your fridge, or any other magnetic surface.
This is Sharon from Lemon Squeezy, back again with another free download for you. My daughter had a movie birthday party and it was tons of fun. My favorite part was the treats, of course, since I designed a cupcake popcorn wrapper for them!
You can download these wrappers for your cupcakes, too! Click through to the post for the pdf and print on regular 8.5 x 11 paper. Print them out and simply tape them around the cupcake base. For the “popcorn” on top, I used some snowman marshmallows that I had saved from the winter (which were yellow tinted). I twisted them up to give them a popcorn look and put them on top of the cupcake and they looked great. If you can’t find those particular marshmallows in your store, then I’m sure regular or mini marshmallows would work great too after a little manipulation.
Hi ‘Or so she says’ readers, it is Sharon from Lemon Squeezy! This month’s free download is a set of bookmarks. I love to read (my current favorite author is Fred Vargas) and never seem to have a bookmark when I need it. Click through to the post to access the bookmark download the set and print on 8.5 x 11 card stock!
