Easter Teacher Appreciation Tags

Easter Teacher Appreciation Tags

Peeps are a special kind of Easter Magic. When I came across these extra magical Bunny Peeps, I knew I had to come up with a special Easter use for them. These Bunny Peeps are perfect for an Easter Teacher Appreciation gift. I have come up with a couple of holiday Teacher Appreciation gifts before, like my recent Lucky to Have You as a Teacher St. Patrick’s Day and a [Read More...]

5 Ingredient Blackberry Jam Bars

Super delicious and only 5 ingredients- these Blackberry Jam Bars are so simple to make! | Thirty Handmade Days

5 ingredients.  Pie like. Taste great. Need I say more?  These Blackberry Jam Bars are a winner.  With only five ingredients (and one that can change to whatever you like), you most likely have them on hand like I did!

Then add in 3/4 cup sweetened, shredded [Read More...]

Service Scavenger Hunt with Printables

Such a fun idea for a youth activity- service scavenger hunt with free printables | From Allora Handmade via Thirty Handmade Days

I’m not the only one who has a thing for printables. My sister Jessica loves herself a printable too.  And my brother can find his way around design programs probably better than the two of us combined.  I guess you could say it’s a family thing.  I get to share a recent idea and printable that Jess did for the youth in church that friends on Instagram were begging for [Read More...]

The Always Prepared Binder

the Always Prepared Binder- printable sheets to be prepared for everything. Can be added to Family Binder with the Budget Binder too. | Thirty Handmade Days

This time last year we found out that my Dad had cancer.  Our family has had our fair of trials over the years but 2013 took the cake.  Just shy of eight short months later, he passed away.   My project today is a touchy one- an “always prepared binder.”  I have known that I wanted to put together this binder for awhile and even talked to my Mom about it.  [Read More...]

Marble Cheesecake Brownies

Make these amazing Marble Cheesecake Brownies and blow everyone away! from Thirty Handmade Days

What can I say about these? They are delicious and simple and a fun take on regular brownies. I love cheesecake.  So it’s a natural fit, right? I found this recipe in another church cookbook.  Have I mentioned that I collect old cookbooks and church cookbooks?  Because I honestly think they have the best recipes in them.  I grabbed a Campbell’s cookbook from the 70′s the other day and can’t [Read More...]

Don’t Eat the Peep Easter Game

Super fun "Don't Eat the Peep" Easter game. Print out and play with your family! Thirty Handmade Days

Easter is under a month away and I’m just getting my act in gear.  Pretty soon it’ll be Christmas.  Kidding!  But really — this cute little springy game is perfect to celebrate Easter. In the past I made up “Don’t Eat the Chief” to celebrate Presidents Day.  It’s an easy and fun way for kids to learn the presidents of the United States.  I thought it’d be fun to make [Read More...]
