I apologize for doing two posts in two days but I had to add this post while it was still Teacher Appreciation Week.
When I started blogging, I was introduced to the wonderful world of printables. Printables are downloads of all kind of graphic designs, cards, etc. that you can print out and use in a million different ways. Sometimes these printables are available for purchase at very reasonable prices but there are also a lot of FREE printables available. When I'm looking for a particular theme, all I have to do is google my topic with "free" and "printable" and I've always been able to find something great.
I am still blown away that all of these creatives ladies out there in the blogosphere provide these printables for FREE and so I wanted to give a shout-out to a couple of the people that I have used in some recent projects.
For Teacher Appreciation Week, I found Cheri of I Am Momma Hear Me Roar. She had several great ideas for Teacher Appreciation Week, all of which were available as FREE downloads! I chose the Thank You For Helping Me Grow printable which I attached to a potted plant for each of Superman's teachers. I am giving Cheri the shout-out here, but I'm okay with Superman's teachers thinking that I came up with this great idea all on my own!
Superman also recently had Crazy Hat Day at school. To say he is obsessed with Lego Star Wars would be an understatement so I wanted to find a way to incorporate this into our crazy hat design. I found Cindy of Skip To My Lou and her FREE Lego Star Wars cupcake topper printables. I printed them out, put them on pipe cleaners and attached them to a red ball cap I found for about $1 at Hobby Lobby. The result was one great crazy hat!
Superman wouldn't let me take a picture of him wearing the hat so I made the topiary wear it.
I am now hooked on printables as a great way to do something very creative for any occasion.
Happy printing, Cheap Mamas.
