{Introducing Sugar & Thyme} Sugar & Spice Printables

Sugar & Spice Printables | www.motherthyme.com

I am so excited to finally share with you a new venture I have started.  I would like to introduce you to my new Etsy shop, Sugar & Thyme, where I will be selling some of my designs including personalized printables along with other creations still in the works.

Spice up your kitchen with these Sugar and Spice Printables.   They also look great hung side by side in a dining room, or anywhere your walls could use a little dressing up.  I have these hung in my kitchen.  I just love them. 

The best part about these printables is you can purchase them as an instant download.  What does that mean?  They will be conveniently delivered to your email address once purchased.  You can print them at home, or I suggest saving ink and sending them to your local photo retailer such as CVS, Target, Walmart and having them printed on photo paper.  You can pick up an inexpensive frame at any craft store.  I have these framed in simple frames from Joann’s.  For under $30.00 you can have 2 beautifully framed pictures on your walls.

I have been designing custom prints for many years, usually for home and for friends and family.  Everyone has always commented and loved my designs, so I thought I would bring those designs to life in my Etsy shop.  Periodically I will be doing a What’s new on Sugar & Thyme post to update you on Mother Thyme.  so I hope you follow my Etsy shop for the most up to date additions to the shop. 

As a “Grand Opening” for Sugar and Thyme, I am offering MT readers a 20% discount off all orders.  Enter coupon code THYME at checkout.  Coupon expires 2/28/14.

And don’t worry, I am still cooking up Mother Thyme recipes with a yummy recipe coming up later this week! 


Valentine’s Day Printables

Valentine's Day Printables | www.motherthyme.com Growing up I loved Valentine’s Day.  Not just because I would hope to get a little love letter from my boyfriend, but it was a holiday that included chocolate.  At home, we used to do boom boom Valentine’s at the door where you were greeted with a box of chocolate or a fun treat from a mystery cupid. 

Through my twenties and early thirties it was a day I enjoyed with flowers from my husband and a romantic dinner at home.  Now having kids, I enjoy creating a little more of a festive environment for them to enjoy Valentine’s as I did when I was growing up.

I needed to replace my Christmas chalkboard printables I created for the holidays.  I designed this trio of Valentine’s Day printables that are fresh and festive.  I know many of you have enjoyed my printables I have created previously so I thought I would share these with you as well.  They print perfectly for an 8×10 frame.  You just need to click on the prints you like to download them to your computer.  You can print these from your home computer or I send them to CVS and have them printed to save on the ink.  For a few dollars and a frame that I just rotate the pictures out of depending on the season or holiday it is an inexpensive way to add a little fun to any wall.

If you love printables as much as I do, follow me on Pinterest where I am constantly inspired with printables I come across and pin.  I also did a post back in the fall on decorating with printables on Mothertime Marketplace where I share ideas on on decorating with printables and incorporating some printables that I came across via Pinterest. 

If you use these I would love to see.  You can post a picture on my Facebook wall or email a picture.  I hope these add a little pop to your walls for Valentine’s Day.

Free Christmas Chalkboard Printables

Free Christmas Chalkboard Printables

I have a confession to make.  I am addicted to printables.  You know those printables you can find floating around Pinterest. I had printed a bunch of them thanks to Pinterest for the fall and they looked fabulous in my house. You can see a glimpse of them in a Fall Printables post I did at Mothertime Marketplace.

I needed to add some holiday prints to the fall ones that I took down.  I was inpsired after seeing free christmas chalkboard printables.  My kitchen is cream and black and love to to accent it with green and white for the holidays.  I knew these chalkboard printables would be a great addition to my empty frames.  I couldn’t find any printables that were my style so I decided to create some of my own.  They look fabulous and I am so happy how they turned out that I had to share my little DIY printables with you.

If you love printables like I do,  I hope you enjoy these 8 holiday chalkboard printables that I created.  You can print these as 4×6, 5×7 or 8×10 then pop them in a frame and hang on a wall or tuck in an empty bookshelf.

You can easily download them in my recent post I did for Mothertime Marketplace by clicking HERE.

Spring Cleaning & Printable Checklist

Can you believe spring is right around the corner?  Like many areas, we experienced a rather mild winter.  I am hoping (knock on wood) that we won’t get a surprise from Mother Nature with a late winter.  

This weekend we Spring ahead with the clocks.  I love that extra hour of daylight in the evenings.  Already it is staying lighter later and is so nice to be making dinner and looking outside and it not being pitch black.  

Now is the time of year I like to begin tackling my Spring Cleaning projects.  With that comes a good clean on the inside and checking safety equipment such as smoke and carbon monoxide detectors.  A good clean in the Spring and Fall getting in the corners, behind the bookshelves and appliances not only ensures everything is in good working order but keeps the house clean and tidy.

If you would like to see all my tips for a Spring clean plus a organized printable Spring Clean checklist I am sharing all my tips and the checklist at Mothertime Marketplace.
