Celebrating St. Patrick’s Day!!

Celebrating St. Patrick's Day Hero Image

Every year on March 17th, the Irish and the Irish-at-heart Celebrate St. Patrick’s Day.  What began as a religious feast day for St. Patrick, the patron Saint of Ireland has become an international celebration of Irish culture.   I will admit that I am not normally “gung ho” about St. Patrick’s Day, but aside from the fact that I enjoy Corn Beef and Cabbage, there are now so many family friendly activities centered around this holiday.  From the  grand St. Patrick’s Day parades to the local street festivals, there is more than enough to see, learn and participate in.  And, if you happen to be kid free, there’s more than enough Green Beer to go around too.  (Yuck, I hate beer, but to each his own, I guess.)

SO LET’S GET FESTIVE !!

St. Patrick’s Day Attire:  Don your Green attire, or risk getting pinched.

The 2016 Fall Must Haves…

It’s officially the first day of Autumn!!  You know what that means, all you folks that were shaking your heads at my Early Fall Decorations can now take several seats!!  LOL.  OK, I am kidding, well kind of …  There is just something about Fall that sends my Energy and Creativity Levels soaring.  As much as I enjoy a good pool or beach day, me and elevated temperatures are not friends.  Plus, fall means time to update your wardrobe, pull out your Cold Weather Goodies and get rid of those things that you no longer love!!  And, who would not love that?

Sweaters and Tops:

The most important rule of Fall Fashion is layering.  I mean lets face it, its not exactly Parka Weather, but it is often Brisk Enough early in the day to catch the oh so infamous “Autumn Cold”.  And, NO ONE, especially us Moms, have time for that.  I am always excited every year at how diverse the selection of Sweaters and Tops are for the changing season.  You can go from Casual Chic to Sexy Mom with just a few style changes.

Boots… Boots and More Boots:

There are so many different boot styles to choose from.  But, this time of year I am particularly fond of Ankle Boots.  Simply because I consider them to be a transitional staple.  They can go from Early Fall to late Winter.  But, I also have a love hate relationship with them.  The oh so anal side of me wants my pants/jeans/slacks to be long enough not to hide their beauty, but not short enough that I look like I am expecting a flood.

Scarves.. Ponchos.. and Wraps…

Surprise, Surprise, my love affair with the Blanket Scarf has made its way into this season.  But, in addition to that these Ponchos and Wraps are just as fun, if not more because of their Cover Up Properties.  You can throw them over a t-shirt, add the right accessories and splash some color on your lips and you are good to go.

Celebrate Grandparent's Day with 3 Free Grandparent's Day Coloring Sheets - stage-presents.com

Tomorrow is Grandparent’s Day!! Do your little ones want to show Grandma and Grandpa just how much they mean to them?  Grab some crayons and let them get to work on these Free Fun Coloring Sheets.  My parents are all about anything they get from the “grands”.  Think of what a treat this will be.

I hear a lot of belly aching about these Commercial Holidays that supposedly Hallmark has invented.  I am not weighing in either way.  But, I am all for this one.  I was not fortunate enough to grow up around my grandparents, but whenever they came to visit it was such a treat.  There’s nothing quite like hearing first hand stories about what your parents were like as kids, from their parents.  There is always a bit more truth to it, lol.  I hope your little ones are lucky enough to have a relationship with their grandparents.  Enjoy them while you can.   So Download and Print these Free Coloring Sheets.  You can frame them or give  it to them as is, the choice is yours.

Happy Grandparent’s Day Certificate

Grandpa You Color My World

Grandma You Are The Apple of My Eye

Here’s a Little Factual History about the day. In 1970, a West Virginia housewife, Marian Lucille Herndon McQuade, initiated a campaign to set aside a special day just for Grandparents.  The first Grandparents Day was proclaimed in 1973 in West Virginia by Governor Arch Moore.   In 1978, five years after its West Virginia inception, the United States Congress passed legislation proclaiming the first Sunday after Labor Day as National Grandparents Day. The proclamation was signed by President Jimmy Carter. (September was chosen for the holiday, to signify the “autumn years” of life.)
Today this event, begun by only a few, is observed by millions throughout the United States.  For more information on The History of Grandparent’s Day, follow the link.

Get Ready for Back to School with these Free Personalized Binder Covers

Back to School Binder Cover Blog

As always, summers around here don’t seem to last.  There are literally just 16 days left until the start of school here in Atlanta.  So, I am in full Back to School Planning Mode, much to the chagrin of my little ones who are still very much in “lounge mode”. Most of our School Supplies have been purchased, and the only major thing we still have to do is clothes shopping.  I don’t know how it is at your house, but for me, my Middle School-er is the hardest shop for.  She after all, has strong opinions on her look and fashion in general.  Who knew??  I thought I had a few more years, lol.

Last year, I made a Binder Cover for her and somehow I ended up having to make one for most of the girls in her class.  We had to have the whole discussion about volunteering Mommy’s services.  But, they were such a big hit, that I added a few to the blog right before School started last year and they, to this day are one of most downloaded and shared items.

And, you know I am all about a freebie.  So this year, I gave you a few more options.  Five Funky & Fancy Binder Covers for you to choose from and Personalize for your little ones.  To Download – Right Click on the Picture – Save.  You can choose to hand write their names and grades or if you choose to edit it via the computer.  You will be able to open this document in pretty much any program, since I made it a JPEG image.  If you like these and decide to download and use please share your pics on Instagram with the hashtag #spbacktoschool.

Decorate Your Planner with these FREE “Boss Lady” Planner Stickers

Free Boss Lady Planner Stickers found on stage-presents.com

As you all know, I am still a “newbie” to creating my own planner stickers.  If you are a planner enthusiast like myself, chances are you have spent your fair share of “coin” on Planner Stickers.  And, I am OK with that because they were worth every penny.  But, in addition to that I have also found a lot of great Free Printables all over Pinterest.  I am always looking for an opportunity to try my hand at new things.  So here are my “Boss Lady” Planner Stickers.  Jazz your planner pages up with these super cute stickers.  I have tried them out on my Horizontal Erin Condren Life Planner™ and they fit.  Check my personal Planner Pretties board on Pinterest for more “freebies”.   For a Peek Inside My Planner and too see my first attempt at planner stickers check them out here.

Free Boss Lady Planner Stickers found on stage-presents.com

I know that a lot of people are using the Cricut and the Silhouette to cut their stickers.  I have not progressed that far as yet.  But, I do own a Cricut, so its definitely on my Summer To Master List.  I am still using the Avery White Full-Sheet Labels for InkJet Printers.  They come in a Pack of 25 Sheets.  And, the Avery Label Number is 8165.  So go ahead Download  – Print – Cut  and Stick.  I would love to see how you end up using them in your own planners.  So if you do, take a picture and tag #thestagepresentsblog on Instagram.

I hope that you enjoy these, I enjoyed making them.  Happy Planning!!

Celebrate Dad this Father’s Day 2016

Celebrate Dad with His Own Dad Digest!!

tell dad how much you love him with his very own dad digest.

I am a big fan of letting the little ones get involved in showing their love for Dad as early as possible.  I always say parenting can be a thankless job, and everyone loves to be appreciated.  So let your babies get in on the action.  Not only is it something that Dad will always remember.  It is an opportunity to teach them not to take their loved ones for granted.  In the wake of the terrible Orlando tragedy, I am all about spreading love wherever and whenever I can.  So put on your party hats and lets Celebrate The Big Guy In Your Life.
