Mother’s Day is just around the corner. Deep breaths. If you haven’t gotten anything special yet I have the perfect project for you. It is homemade, full of heart, guaranteed to be loved, and best of all easy to make! But you don’t have to share that last part, I won’t tell if you won’t. This is also a great gift for Teacher Appreciation Week, Grandparents Day, or whatever you need a handmade gift for.

The HP Envy is my new favorite officemate. It can easily switch from printing documents to photos in a few simple steps. I confess in the past, with my last photo printer, I could never get it to work right. I’m sure it was user error but I would like to think it had it out for me. My Envy and I are best friends, working together seamlessly across all devices and operating systems. 

Looking for an even simpler way to show someone you are thinking of them? The new HP Cards App is what you need. It is easy to use and your cards can be completed in minutes. Download it for free, choose one of their customizable designs, personalize, and print! You can even choose to send it via email to your family or friends. The App pulls photos from your camera role or various social media accounts.

Strange Magic Movie, Strange Magic free printables

Strange Magic Movie, Strange Magic free printables

Strange Magic is a refreshing and fun new family film from George Lucas, yes that George Lucas! Journey to a musical world filled with fairies, goblins, elves and imps, inspired by “A Midsummer Night’s Dream.” Join in all their misadventures as they battle each other over a powerful potion. Enter into their magical forest and learn how we should not judge someone by the way he or she looks. The inside is what matters and why we all deserve to be loved.

The film takes you into the a land that looks as if you could walk outside and right into it. Yet it still holds us in the realm of fantasy and wonder. I wouldn’t expect anything less from the mastermind behind Star Wars.

“I wanted to do something fun and happy yet unexpected,” says executive producer George Lucas. “It’s a story about love and how the most unlikely people fall in love. It’s about finding true beauty in someone’s soul regardless of how they look.”

For more Strange Magic fun, download these free printables. Perfect for a snow day or a Strange Magic party!

Coconut Lavender Bath Salts, DIY Gift ideas

This post is written by my blogging friend Kristin Novotny of Little Mama Jama. Thank you Kristin for sharing this easy DIY gift! 
 
Coconut Lavender Bath Salts
 
What did you long for in your third trimester of pregnancy? For me, it was relaxation. My body was being stretched in ways I never imagined and I desperately needed comfort. When my sister-in-law announced that she was pregnant, I immediately started thinking of things I could make for her baby shower. I love adding a handmade item to my gifts. It adds an extra element of thoughtfulness.
 
Coconut Lavender Bath Salts, DIY Gift ideas
 
These Coconut Lavender Bath Salts only took five minutes to make. If you’re a perfectionist, most of that time will be spent creating the label! I found this cute glass jar with a spoon at a local craft store. I also purchased chalkboard stickers, a wet chalk marker and ribbon. You will need epsom salt, lavender essential oil and coconut oil for the bath salts.
 
Coconut Lavender Bath Salts, DIY Gift ideas
 
Heat one tablespoon of coconut oil in the microwave until it melts (about 20 seconds). Add 5-10 drops of essential oil, depending on how fragrant you would like your bath salts. Fill your jar halfway with epsom salts. Add half of the oil mixture, then cover and shake to distribute oil evenly. Fill your jar the rest of the way, add the remaining oil and shake again. Boom – you’re done!

You’ll have a cute, homemade gift and no one will know how easy it was!
