Printable USA Map and State Capital Flashcards

Boo has to learn where the states are this year. My first reaction? Oh no….that means I have to learn them too. I was never that great at geography. I wanted a fun and unique way to help her learn them, as well as the capitals, and worked with Lindsay from Pen and Paint to come up with these fun illustrated printable flashcards:

Clean Your Room – A How-To Guide

Heather Boissonneau, graphic designer and mom of two, designed this step-by-step guide to take her kids through the complete process of cleaning their rooms using a series of very simple steps.

 

Help kids to clean their room with this how-to guide printable by HB Design via lilblueboo.com

It neatly answers the questions her children usually ask during room cleaning time like: “Where do I start?” and “What do I do next?” It also helps to settle the debate around when the room is actually “finished” (A.K.A. Mom’s definition of finished as opposed to the children’s definition of finished) which, at least in Heather’s house, typically means that they are finished cleaning regardless of the state of the room.

Boys of Summer Art | A FREE Printable

So many folks asked for a boy-friendly coloring page/tee transfer when i posted the super-girly one last week! So, i asked my 6-year-old son what kind of art HE would like to color on a tee. He pretty much SCREAMED, “Sharks!” So, sharks it is. i know my niece would actually like this too. But it’s only fair i make one with boys in mind, because my poor kiddos always get the shaft when it comes to my art. What can i say? i have a twirly, girly aesthetic and no daughters! It has to come out somewhere!

Anyway, click on the image below for your free coloring page download. Or, if you want a flipped version for use on t-shirt transfers, click here.

Happy coloring and have a great summer!

Kick off school vacation with a summery coloring page to pass the kids’ now-lazy days. This doodle prints perfectly on a plain letter sized piece of paper. OR, print the mirror image onto soft inkjet transfer paper like this. Then iron it onto a white or light colored tee and let your little one color it in with fabric markers. They will be so proud of their wearable masterpiece! It would also be a great project for a summer birthday or pool party!

Boo tested out the new doodle print recently:

Guest Post (and download) – Laura Winslow Photography

Over the next several weeks you will see guest posts popping up here and there from some of our friends in the blogging community. They have generously donated their time to write a post for the Lil Blue Boo blog as Ashley goes through chemotherapy. We are incredibly grateful to these wonderful people, and we are excited to share their posts with you. We gave them a subject to write about: how do you find joy in blogging or crafting? They were welcome to interpret that however they wanted. Enjoy!

Please welcome Laura from Laura Winslow Photography.

 

Hello sweet Lil Blue Boo readers! I am beyond happy to have been asked to be a guest blogger and to share with you a little about what I love about blogging. I am Laura–a photographer, mom, wife, daughter, sister, friend, blogger and lover of new experiences. I love to dream up my next vacation and to let my mind wander about what I will do next.

I first met Ashley at a conference that we were both speaking at (though we had “known” each other online for awhile before), and the real-life Ashley exceeds in amazingness the one that you all know and love online. Seriously. She has a mega-watt smile that is absolutely genuine and filled with happiness and speaks with such ease that you feel you have known her forever. She made me giggle every morning when I saw her stride in, McDonald’s breakfast in hand and ready to chow down. There is just something humorous and honest to me about a California blonde that looks like a model yet is a self-professed lover of McDonald’s and eats it like nobody’s business (I imagine Ashley would confirm this and not be embarrassed in the least :)) She is at the same time a serious businesswoman and fun person to be around and when I found out what she has been going through I just sat in sad disbelief. Ashley is a strong and positive soul, though, and has further inspired a great many with her attitude and by choosing joy.

This phrase resonates with me in that I have long been a lover of poems, quotations and words that in some way move me, motivate me or inspire me. That is what I love about blogging–it is my own little part of this world where I can share images that inspire me, things that I find interesting and lovely, and words that are powerful. I have a weekly feature called “Memorable Words Monday” where I share a new free printable each week. I do this because I want to share with others things that stir my soul. Things that brighten my day. Things that make me happy. I thought it fitting to offer a free printable to the ever-fab Lil Blue Boo lovelies that is a tribute to sweet Ashley–Choose Joy. Download it, print it out, frame it and place is somewhere where you can see it daily. Think good thoughts of Ashley, lift your own spirits or share it with someone you know will love it, too. Live the message and pass it on. We love you, Ashley! You rock our world! :)
