Drum Roll Please . . . Five Little Ladies has MOVED!

7 Jun

Well . . . after a month of working every spare moment ( and all the ones in between too)  I am finally ready to introduce you all to my new home on the world wide web!            (and do loads and loads and loads of laundry, something has to wait when I’m bloggin’!)

www.fivelittleladies.com

Oh, yeah . . . the address didn’t change much did it {wink} just a little bit shorter. There is still a lot of work to do, but I couldn’t wait any longer to introduce it to you.  I’m so anxious ( I can never wait to open a present either, I always try to peak!)

Please go over to the new site and take a look around.  Let me know what you think!

If you are a subscriber here I won’t be posting here any more . . . so don’t miss out on all the great things I have in store for you, subscribe over there.  You can join my newsletter for an occasional update and free gift or if you would rather, you can subscribe to my rss feed and get emails when I add new posts!  It’s up to you, but I’m sure you will want to choose one or the other, because I have so many fun things to share with you.

Here are some highlights of what’s over there

  • My Notebook.  This is like my personal diary or journal, where I have my virtual to do list of the great inspiration and ideas I find out there.  Memoirs of hilarious events that keep me rolling on the floor still wondering if it was for real.  Even a guest post from the girls every once in a while.
  • In the Kitchen Oh I was so excited when I added a recipe print feature!  Now when I find a “can’t live without” recipe you and I can print it in recipe card format!  { squeal in delight }
  • Free Tutorials Of course I still have a page with all the links to my free tutorials and I have so many more to add!!!
  • Home & Garden This section is bubbling over . . . scrapbooking, crocheting patterns and tutorials, FREE printables! Party planning ideas, decorating,  hmmm you’ll just have to see for yourself 🙂
  • Homeschooling  Some of you may know I have dabbled in homeschooling!  I have learned a thing or two and definitely have some tips for you here and a free lapbook or other fun printable you can use
  • Photography I love photography!  Sadly, I don’t know much about it, so here I will post as I learn.  You may like to learn along with me!  I do know some about Photoshop and so I will post tutorials for photoshop here.  One of my girls is really interested in photography also and she has some great photos there already
  • A Love Story  I added a new page for a wonderful Love Story set in the World War 2 era, inspired by real letters sent from my Grandfather to my Grandmother.  If you are a history buff, you may like this section.
So there you have it . . . an invitation to my work in progress.  I hope you will love it and leave me lots of great comments, ideas and don’t forget to subscribe to my newsletter! I have some really great gifts for you to download instantly after you sign up. Free circus party printables, Father’s Day party tags, and even a fun save the date Play Date card!
     
See you over there { wink}
xoxo
ps.  Lia was a stage name one of the girls gave me  . . .  I decided to just be Me!

{ FREE Printable } Corner bookmark

10 Apr

A FREEBIE for you today!

I made this little bookmark one year when we were homeschooling.

Originally I had different reading comprehension questions on the book marks to prompt deeper thinking when the girls were reading.

These come together nicely and are a fun way to keep your place.

Have your kids color them to make them special

Then you could have the bookmark laminated to make it last a bit longer.

  1. Click HERE for the image
  2. Right click on the image and select print or save to your hard drive
  3. Cut the image out on the outer lines
  4. Fold  to make the triangle shape
  5. Glue to make it secure

Optional

  • once your bookmark is completed laminate with contact paper or have it heat laminated, then carefully cut through the lamination at the opening edge where it will slip over the edge of the book page.

Enjoy!

This is a great idea! Ribbon organizing

19 Mar

This is such a  great idea I just had to share!

Over at Blue Cricket Design there is a wonderful idea for organizing your ribbon.

Look what they did with an old dresser drawer . . . isn’t this a fabulous idea.

I also saw a great idea once over at Sew Many Ways.  Karen is a talented lady and I love all her organizing tips.  Being her creative self, she used spring rods and hung ribbon on the rods, then placed them inside a bookcase.  Take a look over here.

Loved these ideas, so HAD to share {{wink}}  Do you have a good idea for organizing ribbon?  Let me know, I always love your comments.
