Animal Friends Free Printable Set

Animal Friends Free Printable Set.

I love little animal friends, and I wanted to share some with you.  When I was a kid, I grew up in Fair Oaks, California.  We lived on an acre backed up to a lush, green, oak-laden ravine and wild park land.  We spent countless hours exploring the overgrown bamboo patch, traipsing through the tall grasses to the bottom, and making tiny boats to race down the stream (during the times we actually had a bit of rain).

 

Free Fox Printable from Little Girls Pearls

We had families of foxes take up residence in the ravine over the years.  Spring was always fun because the tiny baby foxes are just the cutest little things!

While we had a sweet doggie, there were always kitties around.  They would prowl for mice and gophers, and would sing their howly kitty song at night.

 

Precious panda 8x10 printable from Little Girls Pearls

We would shimmy down the grassy hill to the bamboo patch and pretend that we would see pandas climbing up the tall stalks that rustled in the breeze.

 

Fluffy bunny nursery printable from Little Girls Pearls.

Our bunny rabbit, Hopper, was a gift from our biggest sister one Easter.  He was black, silky, and so soft.  He would get enough speed running around our round geodesic dome that he would actually start running on the walls!  So here’s a fun little bunny to hang on your wall.

Click to download the animal friends 8x10 free printables set.

The file is a PDF and is set to print each of the 8 x 10 prints on a regular 8 1/2″ x 11″ sheet of letter size paper on your printer.  If you’d like to trim them to fit an 8×10 frame, you can trim off 1/4″ from the top and bottom and 1/2″ from each side.  If you run across any questions, just let me know.

What was your favorite little animal friend when you were growing up?

Second Star to the Right Free Printable

Second star to the right and straight on 'til morning - Peter Pan | free 8x10 printable from Little Girl's Pearls ♥

I have two boys.  They are so old now.  I can’t believe how quickly they’ve grown.  12 and 16 is far too old for this mama.  When did this happen?  When they were little, their imaginations soared.  Just like Peter Pan and Wendy through the night sky.  They were gleeful and giggly and silly and wonderful!  Now that they are older they are just as imaginative.  Far more creative and brilliant than I ever imagined they could be.  The things their minds dream up are crazy amazing and wonderful and insane.  They make this mama proud.  It’s amazing how it’s hard to watch them grow up, but it’s so wonderful to see the people they have become.  They bring a joy to my heart that I will never be able to explain.  I’m such a goof – I’m tearing up a bit thinking about it!

My husband and I always joke that before kids we never lost our temper, yelled, worried or cried nearly as much as we do now.  However, we also never laughed as hysterically, dreamed as big or imagined as much as since our boys joined our family.  My mama hope and wish is that they never lose that creative and imaginative outlook on life.  Enjoy, my sweet not-so-little boys.  Know that this mama is right there behind you, cheering you on as you soar through the night – to the second start to the right and straight on ’til morning.

Second star to the right and on til morning - Peter Pan free printable download from Little Girl's Pearls. ♥

This little free printable is set up to print neatly on a regular 8 1/2″ x 11″ piece of letter size paper.  The file is set to print at a very detailed 300 dpi (so it’s nice and crisp) – but it makes it a bit of a big file, so download it & walk away to get a cup of tea while it finishes popping up on your computer.

It is a PDF file, so you’ll need a PDF reader (like adobe PDF) – they’re available free online.  Simply print, cut off 1/2″ off the top & bottom and 1/4″ off of each size.  Voila – a great 8″x10″ print for your kiddo’s wall!  Just click on the image above to download your PDF.  If you have any troubles, give me a holler. ♥

from small beginnings come great things free printable

From Small Beginnings Come Great Things Free Printable from Little Girl's Pearls - perfect for her nursery or big girl room.

When searching around for quotes for your free printable this month, this old American Proverb really spoke to me right now.  I am a worry wart.  I mean seriously, I worry about my kiddos all…the…time!  My boys are 12 and 15, which I truly can’t believe.  I have a slide show of their itty bitty baby faces looking at me from my computer screen daily.  I absolutely cannot fathom that from those itty bitty babies I now have a spunky pre-teen and a ginormous teenager.  How on earth did that happen???

from small beginnings - a sweet free printable 8x10 for her baby nursery or little girl room | Little Girl's Pearls ♥

When our oldest was born we had nursing issues.  He was so tiny and sad because he was hungry.  It just broke my heart.  We spent weeks going daily back and forth to the next town to the lactation consultant.  It took 3 months, but we finally got the hang of it.

Come great things - a lovely free printable from Little Girl's Pearls for her baby nursery, baby shower gift or big girl room.

In those early days I was so worried about him gaining weight and growing.  Now he’s over 6 feet tall, taller than his daddy, and still growing.  He can polish off a 3 pound pot roast and a couple of pounds of carrots if we let him.  Oh my word.  So in the middle of it, we were terrified and worried constantly…but now from his small beginnings, he has definitely grown and blossomed into a wonderful young man doing great things.  He’s studying for his driver’s test (what?!?!?) and has become an awesome farmer and wood turner.  So even in the midst of the worry, no matter how tiny your little one is…just know that great things will come from her small beginnings!!

So here’s a big old hug to you, mama!  We are totally in this together.  Every age brings a new “small beginning” and in the end, great things will certainly abound!  So print it out and hang it in her nursery or big girl room. ♥

I love you more than all the stars free printable

I love you more than all the stars free printable | Little Girl's Pearls

You may not know why, but this is so near and dear to my heart!  Firstly, I married an astronomy geek.  ♥  Secondly said amazing astronomy geek works on Vandenberg Air Force base here on the gorgeous Central Coast of California.  We are incredibly lucky to get to watch various rockets launch on a relatively regular basis.

There’s something so magical and amazing watching the rockets soar into outer space right in front of our very eyes.  So because their daddy does what he does & they have grown up watching these amazing fiery balls of light jet off into space, both of our boys are completely in love with the stars.  Our oldest is convinced he’ll be traveling to Mars and has decided to study sustainable farming, so he can be the first Mars farmer.

I love you more than all the stars free printable.

So while their feet are right here on the ground, their heads are all floating among the beautiful stars.  Giant balls of gas and fire that capture our imagination, creativity and love from a very young age.

My boys know that when I tell them that I love them more than all the stars that it is a BIG deal.  I love them so much, and this is just an itty bitty way to remind them.  Do you have a kiddo with her head in the stars?  This free printable might make a fun little graphic for her wall or a cover of a notebook.

It’s set up to print on a regular 8 1/2″ x 11″ paper.  I used photo paper, but feel free to use card stock or whatever paper you have on hand.  If you’d like it in a frame, you can cut 1/2″ off the top and the bottom & 1/4″ off left and right to fit in an 8″ x 10″ frame.  It’s a PDF document, so you can use any free PDF reader to open it.

Braver Stronger Smarter Free Printable

printable braver stronger smarter LARGER size

This, my friends, is one of my absolute favorite quotes of all time.  It’s hanging in my studio right now.  I look at it quite often.  It’s a great reminder…no matter what.  I know we all go through times when we fell “less than” or inadequate.  I have struggled with that my entire life.  It has taken me more than 40 times around the sun to come to a peace about my health issues, my body image and this crazy idea that was planted in my head many years ago that somehow I couldn’t accomplish my goals.

Braver

The thoughts in my head are sometimes so harsh.  They are definitely not things I would EVER think of saying to someone else.  But yet, I say them to myself.  Negative self-talk is really a big issue for me, do you struggle with it?  I’ve been trying to change the dialog I have with myself by being mindful of it.  After all, we mamas have a crazy amount of responsibilities on our plates.  We need a bit of self-care now and then!  Do you have any great ideas or tips to remind yourself to be gentle with yourself & quell the negative voices in your head?

Be gentle with yourself today.  Remember that you are Braver than you Believe, Stronger than you Seem & Smarter than you Think!!

You are doing a great job, Mama!  Keep it up.  I see you.  You are not alone ~ we are in this together.  So print this out and post it somewhere you can see it.  Share it with your kiddos & help them to {soar}.  Remember that *YOU* are absolutely {special} and {wonderful} and definitely “more than”. ♥

This is one of my most loved quotes of all time.  I studied Shakespeare in England for a summer during college, A Midsummer Night’s Dream was one of my very favorite plays.  I thought this would be perfect a for a nursery or little girl’s room.  She is so very small when she is a new little sweetie, but she will do amazing things as she grows!
