Easter Printables

it's spring break here in the woods, so things have been slow at church. on a particularly slow day earlier this week i decided to play around with some text for the cover of our Easter Sunday bulletin.
once i had something i loved i couldn't stop and created two versions and multiple colorways and now i've decided to share them with you!

the first is the lyrics to my favorite Easter hymn, Christ the Lord is Risen Today. 

the second is the verse we had our Fun Club kids memorize last week, Matthew 28:6. 

oh and a chalkboard version just for fun! 

so here they are for you!  click the links below for the pdfs in each colorway. you can also right click and save the picture files in this post, but there are more options with the pdfs. 
they are all 8.5 x11 paper. the chalkboard will print out at a full 8x10 and the colorful text can be trimmed to either 8 x10 or 5 x7. 

Christ the Lord is Risen Today

Matthew 28:6 PDFs available here:

i printed out a set of these for the office at church and set for home plus a few to give as quick Easter gifts with some delicious chocolate bunnies. (sidenote: have you seen those commercials about giving toys for Easter instead of chocolate? i find them odd. i will be eating chocolate bunnies on Sunday...)

so print them out, hang them in your home or your office and celebrate the resurrection of our Savior!
Happy Easter friends!

pardon our dust

it's been too, too long since anything showed up over here on the blog. life has been crazy (working three jobs will do that) and the blog wasn't high on the priority list. but things have settled down a bit and i have some fun things in store for the shop(s) in the near future so i thought i'd come back to this little space. but since i'm here i'm planning on freshening things up a little bit. so i'll be back soon with something fun, hopefully an easter printable (or eight...) by the end of the day!


i'll be back next week- just in time for my 28th birthday- for now i'm off to camp! 



this week things have quieted down a little bit. i'm getting used to life all alone in the church office since our associate pastor moved last week. thankfully it shouldn't be for too long, since our senior pastoral candidate is visiting this week and he seems like a great fit for our church! 

 we attended a potluck meal with the pastor and his family which meant coming up with something pretty to feed everyone! 

enter beautiful rainbow fruit salad. grapes, blueberries, honeydew, kiwi, banana, mandarin oranges, strawberries, raspberries and tiny marshmallows {which make any fruit salad better} it stayed beautiful for the first 5 minutes and then was a mixed up pile of deliciousness. 

also on the menu this week were breakfast for dinner {dutch baby pancakes with peaches} and my go to work snack {oat squares & bittersweet chocolate chips}. yum!

after being m.i.a. for a while the deer have been visiting a lot this week. 

sometimes the pup thinks maybe she wants to be friends with the little deer and the deer occassionally think this might be okay, right up until the moment where maddie decides she wants to play! 

that lil lady in the bottom right decided to follow me to the mailbox and then block my route back to the house yesterday afternoon. i'm happy to see deer in the yard, but secretly i'm afraid one will try to box me so i'm much happier watching them from the deck than being in up close and personal! 

more crocheting this week!
 i'm continuing work on the giant blanket. when i started the project for our bedroom we only had a full size bed, since then we have upgraded to a king so the blanket got huge! it will probably take me years to complete, especially since i discovered i had a calculation wrong and have to do double the squares i had written down. oops...

another tiny baby gift in the works- flip flops!
seriously in love with this pattern from two girls patterns.

and finally a little something i'm cooking up for the shop for this fall! think cozy home accessories!

a little real life ridiculousness for you! my second job for the summer is at lick-a-dee splitz scooping ice cream & making various desserts and i absolutely love it! after sitting {mostly} by myself at church all day it's a welcome change to be around lots of happy people at the ice cream shop. this pic is me on my dinner break in the back room. such a happy place to work!

most of the time up here thrifting is a jackpot full of treasures but there's always the scary scary stuff that just begs to have it picture taken and then be left alone! 

things i passed up this week include a bucket o dog sweaters, a giant neon snowmobile suit and scary wig lady over there. luckily there were some treasures to be found, but those will be in their own post soon!

have a wonderful weekend. any exciting plans? my good friend katie from food, wine and mod podge happens to be coming up to the woods this weekend so i'm going to spend saturday morning with her before heading in to lickadee for the evening!

linking up over here with jeannett again!
