Hand and Footprint Reindeers

December 20th, 2014|Categories: A Little Delightful, crafts|Tags: , , , , |2 Comments

I am not sure how or why this isn’t already on my blog – because ever since Noah was two we have been making these hand and footprint reindeer and they are one of my all time favourite Christmas activities! 
They’re also super easy, you just need some brown paper (I use two shades) and some googly eyes (you can also just draw the eyes on!). Some red marker or glitter glue for the red Rudolph nose and some glue or tape. 
Trace your kiddos foot on a piece of paper and cut out. If using […]

{printable} My Christmas Keepsake Series 2014

December 19th, 2014|Categories: A Little Delightful, printables|Tags: , , , , , |1 Comment

Hello!! Thank you to all of you that have been asking about these. I almost almost didn’t put them up! It has been so wonderful to hear that some of you do these religiously every year with your children and that you look forward to them! 

My kiddos and I do these every year and it has been such a joy to be able to go through past years pages and see how they’ve grown and changed. Of course this year Owen is a little young but we still completed a handprint page for him […]

{printable} Tooth Fairy Receipts and Childhood Tooth Record

June 17th, 2013|Categories: printables|Tags: , , , |28 Comments

Happy Monday everyone!As promised, here are my Tooth Fairy printables. We recently reached this awesome childhood milestone and Noah pretty much burst when I picked him up from school and he had a big gap where there once was a tooth! I was a little sad I wasn’t there to witness the joy of him realising his tooth had *finally* fallen out and the tooth fairy would be visiting, but I thought – that’s ok – next time.Well, next time was much sooner than I thought it was going to be! Just two weeks […]

project life: my approach and a printable planner

March 20th, 2012|Categories: printables|Tags: , |38 Comments

So many of you have been waiting for this post and I’m worried you’re going to be very underwhelmed haha. No elaborate or unique and wonderful Project Life ideas here – just back to basics easy, simple and straightforward.Today I’m going to share with you how I approach Project Life. I have taken a much more relaxed approach to it this year as I found I was over-stressing about it all and although I loved the result of a finished Project Life – I didn’t love the whole process as I was always stressy […]

my desk

January 30th, 2012|Categories: A Little Delightful|Tags: , , |22 Comments

The other week I finally tidied up my desk and made room for Project Life.It meant I had to stick my printer up the top of my desk {this is an Ikea Expedit desk which used to be hubby’s and now I use it since he doesn’t need a large desk anymore}. Not my favourite option, but needed so I have plenty of work space on my desk, even when the lap top is on there.On the top shelf I have the cute wooden divided box I bought when holidaying in Albany {WA}. I […]

{printable} back to school – countdown + interview

January 19th, 2012|Categories: printables|Tags: , |0 Comments

It is nearly that time of year – when our kiddos start or go back to school!
 
We are technically starting our 3rd year of schooling but it isn’t really getting any easier yet. Ok so I don’t cry like I did when I first left him at his 3 year old classroom, but I still get soppy and emotional and dread the start of the new school year.
 
Our first year of schooling saw Noah start at a 3-year old program for 1 day a week, which we increased in the 3rd term to 2 […]

christmas fingerprint fun

December 19th, 2011|Categories: crafts|Tags: , |1 Comment

After falling in love with the Reindeer thumbprints we did on Noah’s bookmarks I decided we all needed to make some christmas fingerprint art to display in our home. So the other weekend I painted these mini canvases in a few different colours – winter blue, a slight teal and a washed out gold. After our canvas dried, we each added a thumbprint. The antlers and eyes were done with a fine permanent marker and the nose was done with a small dot of red paint. After seeing these cute snowman ornaments on Eighteen25 last year I really […]

It’s been a long wait for some of you {sorry!} but thankfully {heehee} the Thankful Book Covers are now ready in store. There are 5 delightful designs to choose from.We have really been enjoying going over some of the older Thankful entries and we are still going strong, despite quite a number of rollercoaster rides in our life as of late. A friend of mine has been keeping a Thankful book for the whole family and I thought this was a nice idea too so kiddos can look back on what they were Thankful for, and […]
