Free Printable Lil'Pirate Party Circles

Free Printable Lil'Pirate Party Circles from B.Nute productions
I can't believe it's been over 3 years since I posted my free printable Lil'Pirate Party Set including: Little Pirate Party Invitations, Loot Bag and Ahoy banner. I love to hear from readers now and again how they've used the set at one of their parties! Just recently, a reader contacted me and said she was so excited to use my invitation and banner, but would love to have matching circles to use as cupcake toppers.

Well, it sounded like a great idea, so hear they are! These 2" circles can be used as cupcake toppers, or you could use them as stickers as well. I kept some blank too so you can customize as you'd like.

Enjoy me mateys!

Instructions for Making Your Lil'Pirates Party Circles
1. Select link above, and print out the circles on 8.5" x 11" card stock from your browser. I suggest using a heavier card stock to give the toppers some weight. If you'd rather have stickers, print out on an 8.5" x 11" sticker stock.
2. Cut out circles using a 2" circle cutter or by hand.
3. Attach to a lollipop stick and use as cupcake toppers or how ever else you'd like to decorate your party!

Holiday Traditions: The Easter Dress

Holiday Traditions: The Easter Dress by B.Nute productions
I can still remember my daughter's sweet little yellow Easter dress she wore one year when she was a toddler. The bright yellow pressed cotton, the smocking with tiny adorable embroidered flowers on it, and the precious peter pan collar. She looked perfect for a bright Easter morning brunch!

Each year, my mom continued the tradition she started when my daughter was born by getting her an Easter dress to wear. It's always been the same, sweet traditional style I just love, until more recently. Although I couldn't be more proud to watch my daughter grow into a young woman, it's hard to say goodbye to those sweet dresses!

I did tuck a few into a box to save for her when she's a mom. With such a timeless style, perhaps her daughter or daughters could wear one as well. I can only hope she'll keep up the Easter dress tradition. With such a casual lifestyle we lead, it's always fun to get dressed up once and awhile!

Gettin' Crafty: Front Door Collage Art

Create Your Own Front Door Collage Art to Celebrate Your Home
For some reason, on my walk today I started paying attention to everyone's front door. Each house I passed, I mentally analyzed their entryway. Was it welcoming? Was it colorful? What did it potentially say about the family that lived inside?

Once home, my obsession continued. I decided to create a project that would celebrate my very own front door. I'm really happy with the way it turned out. It's the perfect collage to be framed and sit near

Poisson d'Avril: April Fool's Day Tradition in France

Poisson d'Avril - France's April Fool's Day Tradition
I love learning about different traditions celebrated in other countries. When I first heard how the French celebrate April Fool's Day I was quite confused. The day is called Poisson d'Avril and the tradition is to tape a paper fish drawing on to your friend's back without them knowing. It has the same light hearted silliness as a prank one might play on April Fool's Day in the United States, but the prank never changes. It's always a fish. So, why the name "April fish" and how did the tradition come to be?
