What did we do before Pinterest? I guess whatever we did before cell phones. Ha! I've printed a few things off lately that I thought I would share with you.
First, I was so happy when I saw that these ABC scripture cards were free! These are simple Bible verses your toddler can memorize. I'm so excited to get Westin started on these. He remembers and repeats every little thing I say so I know he will be able to do these.
It suggests you laminate them but I don't have a laminating machine. I just printed them off at home but if you want to save your color ink, put the files on a jump drive and take it to Office Depot and they can print it on card stock in color for less than .70 cents a page. There are four verses per page so it will be less than $5 to print them all. I print stuff at Office Depot all the time! You can find these ABC cards HERE.
I also printed out this calendar of prayers you can pray for your children. I have it on our fridge so I see it several times a day. You can find it HERE. I printed this at Sam's Club because I wanted it to be 8x10 and in a durable photo finish.
***It looks like the link to the calendar is not working now. However, someone posted a link to a similar calendar in the comments. Sorry about that!
I got a jump start on my Valentine's decor (I'll post pics soon) and printed off two prints at Sam's Club. To print at Sam's or Walgreens (or wherever you print pics) then just save the image to your computer and go to Sam's website and follow the directions under the photo tab to send it to them online. Once you do it once, it is very easy.
HERE is the link for the one below. I printed it in an 8x10.
The one below is 16x20 and HERE is the link.
I was looking for a print to put in this frame for Reagan's nursery and found THIS one. It was already the perfect colors so I just printed it on card stock at home.
I stapled a piece of twine on the back and clipped the print up with a tiny clothes pin (I bought a whole bag of them in the scrapbook section at Hob Lob.) The frame was an old gold one my mom had and we painted it white and took out the glass and picture.
In non-pinterest news, Westin got his first stomach bug yesterday. :( Thankfully it lasted less than 12 hours. He did throw up seven times though, and that is the most pitiful thing ever to watch. I basically watched him like a hawk all day so I knew when he was about to throw up. We had very little mess because I was able to catch everything with a beach towel. Haha! By the end of the day he knew to throw up in the beach towel. He got sick for the last time at 9:45 last night so thankfully he slept good the rest of the night. He was a good sport about it though, after every time he was sick he would say, "it's oh-tay." :)
He woke up at 6am saying, "eat eat eat". I took that as a good sign and he has been fine today. Thank you Lord! It is so sad to watch your baby when they are sick.
