Maya Angelou Free Pick Me Up Printable

Happy Wednesday! It’s Stephanie from Slogan Adventures with your monthly printable :)

Does anyone else feel like they are been busy busy with no down time and time is just going to keep on moving and moving and probably go through the holidays?!

I was going to share another holiday printable, I will next month for sure, but doesn’t it seem like the holidays can be stressful and negative at times when it’s supposed to filled with love and spending time with family.  So I decided to share a printable I made that is a great reminder and a little pick me up- especially because sometimes lets face it, the mid week blues can hit pretty hard!  Am I right?

So here is the printable for the month, featuring a beautiful quote from Maya Angelou. I hope you enjoy. I’ve needed this reminder the past few weeks, so it’s up on my fridge right now!

Add a little love to your lunchbox with these printable notes

Hi everyone, it’s Stephanie from Slogan Adventures!

Did your kids start school the past couple of weeks?  My nugget just started a toddler program last week and as much as she loves it, it’s definitely an adjustment period for her!

I thought for the monthly printable why not share some printable lunch box notes that I created.  Now these bad ones are not just limited to the kiddos, you could easily send this off in your spouse or partners lunches as well. Who doesn’t love a little inspiration or a thoughtful note! I have made them 3×3 so they are easy to cut out and small enough to fit in any kid of lunchbox!  The back of the note is blank so you had your own personal touch and sign your name, if you would like!

Just to give you an idea of sizing, here is a picture of the notes in my kiddo’s lunchbox (complete with bubble guppies water bottle, my child is obsessed!)


To download the free printable PDF of the lunch notes, simply click on the image below.  This printable is free for personal use, for licensing inquiries please contact april {at}


Happy Wednesday :)


Washi Tape Morning To Do Chart

Wowzers, it is almost back-to-school already! I am hoping your summer was as fun as ours: camp, fire pits, days at the lake, learning to swim(!), ice cream, and relaxation.  But since school is bout to be in full swing, let’s prepare ourselves for the craziness that will be school mornings. Shall we? Between draggin myself out of bed and getting a nutritious breakfast on the table I will also have to help a little someone get ready too. I have found that morning chore charts help everyone to get out the door with out making mommy want to tear her hair out.  Last year I whipped up a handy-dandy little Morning To Do Chart in no time at all with the help of washi tape.

Washi Tape Morning To Do Chart -

I used all of my favorite washi tapes from my stash and I think it took me about 3 minutes… You COULD make this the morning of the first day of school and still make it on time, it’s that easy! I simply wrote the items that consist of my daughters morning routine on a piece of tape and stuck it on the fridge. If you put something out of order, no problem, it’s washi tape! Move it to where it belongs in the line up and we are all good.

Fridge Morning to Do Chart made form washi tape -

I made two columns, one for “To Do” and one for “Done”. Once a task is completed your child can move the magnet from one column to the next. Now you don’t have to ask, “Have you made your bed?” You can look at the chart.  Of course, this will take some training, but after a few weeks you guys will be running smoothly.  And all thanks to the power of washi.
If your little sweetie is too young to read, I also have this free printable PDF visual chore chart. Just click on the image below for the download link then you can print t at home and use the same magnet moving method I mentioned above (holy cow that was a lot of “M”s in that sentence.)

Enjoy these last moments of summer!

Free “Be Awesome” Printable

Happy Thursday my loves.  I thought today was a day for encouragement. So I am sharing with you my free “Be Awesome” Printable.  It’s a funky multi-color chevron, which, I know I have said here that I am just not that into Chevron, but this is not super staight line traditional chevron, so I am ok with that.  Plus, I made it, so I am kinda partial.

Be Awesome Print Framed -

I have to remind myself to be awesome sometimes… this amazingness doesn’t always come naturally, ya know? Words of encouragement help a lot.  So if you are like me and need a boost sometimes, with your crafts, your kids, your cleaning, your general je ne sais qaui… then look to this for encouragement.  Click on the image below for the free printable 8″ x 10″ PDF.

Summer Cabin Modern Decor   Free Printable: Psalm 33:4  How to Hang Patio Lights

Inspiration printable

For a few years after I met my husband, we would move around a lot for my husband’s job. Sometimes we went to places where we had to make our own fun and find the hidden jewels in the different areas.  It wasn’t always easy, but we definitely tried to make the best of it! I recently found a really good quote that I think could fit with all of our lives at some point anytime we take on a new adventure.   Sometimes I need this reminder especially with dealing with a toddler haha,as well as a middle of the week inspiration! We just recently went on a mini vacation to Sedona, Arizona.  If you haven’t come check out the posts and all the beautiful pictures of all the red rocks!  We don’t travel anymore for my hubby’s job, but it sure gives me the travel itch again and definitely gave me the inspiration for this printable!  I hope everyone is having a wonderful week.   The printable is 8.5 x 11 and you can click here to download it.   For questions on licensing contact april {at} inspiration printable-Stephanie

Tie One On for Your Birthday (Hair Tie Gift with Free Printable)

I’m excited to share today 101+ Birthday Gift Ideas for your Friends, including my Tie One On for Your Birthday (Hair Tie Gift with Free Printable). I am joining forces with Kristen Duke in her Birthday Celebration Week along with over 100 talented bloggers sharing lots of inexpensive ideas and free printables! All week long, Kristen is sharing birthday tips and giveaways so be sure to check out her Party.

I love these fold over elastic hair ties and I am sharing this simple gift idea:

hair tie gift idea with free printable -

Did you catch my oh-so-funny pun in there? “Tie one one,” get it? (For those of you who are like, “uh, no I don’t get it…” lemme ‘splain: “Tie one on” is a term that means “to get drunk” but we are using it to refer to hair ties instead. So if you are giving this to a friend who doesn’t drink, this might not make sense to them.  This is a good gift for a drinker or non-drinker to give to a friend who drinks.)

This is an easy gift that can be pre-made so you have it on hand. I got these specific hair ties at Target but you can get the original Emi-Jay brand here.  I made the printable in 3 different sizes and 10 diffrent color-ways so you can find the one that works for your hair ties.

Click on any of the following colors to be taken to that free PDF printable:

Grey (shown above)
Light Blue

As for the other creative ideas, a lot of these gifts are versatile for any occasion, and can be a to gift to your friends, family, or even that gal that you’d like to get to know better. Even more fabulous–most gifts are under $5, and have coordinating printables to make it super simple!
