I was recently asked to be a monthly contributor on the very famous blog Over the Big Moon! I am so excited for the opportunity to share my thoughts and ideas with their readers.  My first post was on how to decorate your mantel or console table for Halloween in a very classic, pretty and non-freaky way:)!  Check out my post with several more photos and enjoy the free downloads.  Halloween Decorating with Free Sign & Bunting Printables!boo13 boo8 boo2

Written by Lyndi. Posted in Free Printables, Graphic Design, Holidays, Kids & Family Life

My life has been a tad bit busy lately, so I apologize that my postings on the blog have been scarce this week!  I will be posting a lot over the next few days...I have an amazing recipe for a Lemon Creme Cake that would be perfect to make on Mothers Day, pictures of a couple of fun design projects that I am working on, and a challenge that I am going to give to all of my readers...oh, it will be so FUN!  First, I want to post this fun questionnaire that I created for kids to answer about their moms or about their grandmas.  It makes a wonderful present for Mothers Day because all of the answers tend to be so funny!!

April Fools Day Menu that Kids will LOVE!

Written by Lyndi. Posted in Free Printables, Holidays, Kids & Family Life

I love to make April Fools Day fun for the kids...they get a kick out of the simplest things!  Of course my life revolves around food on any normal day, so it is just natural for me to make April Fools Day all about the FOOD!!  I made this menu from The Crazy Cafe and you can print this out and let your dinner guests choose what they want for their April Fools Day dinner...they will be VERY surprised when their plate arrives at the table!!  

I let my kids take turns being the "waiter".   They will take one persons order and then I let the "waiter" help me in the kitchen creating that plate.  They take turns doing this until everyone is served...they absolutely love it!   Oh, and I don't want to be held responsible for the insane sugar high that your kids might get from this!  It's only one day out of the year...right?
