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”. ♥

Smarter free printable

This is an 8″ x 10″ print that prints out right on a regular 8 1/2″ x 11″ piece of paper.  I printed mine on photo paper, but white card stock works well, too.  If you run across any issues, just give me a holler.  Click on the image below to download your free printable.

Click on the image below to download your printable Valentine cards.  It’s a PDF document.  You just need a free PDF reader to open it.  If you run across any questions or issues, just give me a holler.

Simply print on card stock or photo paper & cut.  You cut 1/2″ off the right and 1/2″ off the left side.  Then each card measures 3.75″ square.  If you’re feeling extra fancy, you can tape a lollipop or a quarter (for older kids) to the back.  Just cut a small slit in the card & slip a lollipop stick through & tape it on the back.  Now you can check that crazy Valentine’s Day box off your to-do list! ♥

Are you looking for more inspiration or a little something different?  Be sure to check out last year’s Valentine printables, too.

10 sweet messages for new baby girl gift cards

What to write in a gift card! Read this blog post for 10 sweet messages to put in your gift cards for new parents. You picked the perfect gift, let me help with card. <3 https://blog.littlegirlspearls.com/new-baby-girl-gift-card-message-ideas/ #littlegirlspearls #giftcard #babyshower

There’s nothing more wonderful than welcoming a new baby into the world. When my boys were born, my favorite time was when they fell asleep in my arms.  They are so snugly when they’re tiny!  A little one’s birth is a moment to celebrate not only for itself, but for the many years of joy and love to come.

I know that the weeks following the arrival of a precious little baby girl are going to be full of many irreplaceable moments:

  • the first time she smiles at you
  • when she wraps her tiny hand around your finger
  • when she stops crying as you hold her
  • laying your cheek in her precious head while she sleeps

Of course, there may also be some difficult moments (dirty diapers and loss of sleep are fairly unavoidable), but in your memories even those will become part of the joy of celebrating the arrival of this precious new little one.

Whether you are the mother, father, family, or friend of the family, you’ll want to remember these moments forever. You may also want to give a gift that shows your love for the baby girl and symbolizes the bond between you. Even though your heart may be full of emotions, it can often be hard to write a gift card that conveys your affection. You may want the entire family to recognize the love you attach to your gift, or you may hope that your new dear one will be able to look back on your note in the years to come. Either way, you want a gift card that is meaningful and sweet. I know how hard it can be to come up with the perfect message. You can use the following ideas verbatim or as inspiration for a lovely note to a beautiful baby girl. These cards are perfect to accompany our Little Girl’s Pearls, but they can be adjusted to accompany any meaningful gift.

You will find the gift messages numbered below – perfect for sharing and pinning!  Below that you will find the messages that you can copy and paste for her perfect New Baby gift card. ♥

In case you’d rather copy & past – here are the gift card messages written out for you.

Gift Messages to Write in a New Baby Girl Gift Card:

Message #1 – Although you are small, I love you more than words can express. As you grow each day, my love for you grows, too. Know that you are in my heart wherever you go, and I am always her for you to comfort you in life.

Message #2 – Welcome into the world, little one. If I could, I would give the whole world to you.  But it wouldn’t fit in your tiny, sweet hands. I give you these pearls as a sweet little token of my love and of all that I hope to give you as you grow.

Message #3 – Daughter, from the first time you smiled at me, I knew that I was blessed. I am so grateful for your presence in my life and for the pure happiness each of your smiles brings. I promise to do everything I can to protect each of your dreams and to dry all of your tears.

Message #4 – These pearls for you are timeless just as you, my love, are in my heart forever.  These moments I have with you now, your sweet smiles, and the touch of your tiny fingers, will last in my memory forever.  I cannot tell you how much I cherish these moments or how very much I love you.

Message #5 – My little dear, I hope that each time you look at this gift you see it as a symbol of my love for you. Know that my love is everlasting and you are my heart’s joy. Having you here is a gift to me, and I hope that every day I can remind you of how precious you are.

Gift Messages to Write to the Parents of a New Baby Girl:

Message #6 – Congratulations on your new daughter! [Name] is lucky to have such kind and caring parents, and you are lucky to have such a beautiful little girl. I know that in the years to come she will help you grow in both wisdom and happiness.

Message #7 – Congratulations on bringing a beautiful new life into the world. I hope that the coming days are full of joy, smiles, and love. You deserve all three, and I’m sure you’ll find them all in your new, sweet daughter.

Message #8 – Congratulations on your beautiful little girl. I hope that this gift will help you celebrate her birth and become a treasured keepsake as she grows.

Message #9 – Congratulations! I hope that the arrival of your new little girl fills you with happiness and wonder. I wish your family all the best and am thinking of you all during this most exciting time.

Message #10 – Congratulations on your little bundle of joy! I’m sending my own token of love your way, as well as hopes for the happiest of days to come.

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!

If you’re anything like me, you look at the calendar on February 13th, grumble a little & then surf Pinterest for quick & easy, but cute Valentine’s cards!  This year I decided to take things into my own two little hands – EARLY – and get them finished and ready for Valentine’s Day.

free printable valentine classroom cards | Little Girl's Pearls blog ♥

I wanted something colorful, whimsical and a bit more handcrafted than the cards you frantically buy in a box at the grocery store.  But I also wanted something that was easy, quick and had a bit of character.  My sweet sister is an amazing artist.  Years ago she hand-drew and watercolored these sweet little animals for our Whimsy Kisses shop.  I thought they were just perfect for this project!

sweet water color animals - FREE printable Valentine's card tags | Little Girl's Pearls blog

Simply print on a piece of card stock or thick matte photo paper and cut them out.  Have your kiddos (or you) fill out the “to” and “from” and voila – sweet little Valentine cards that are both unique and surprisingly frugal!  If you’re feeling extra crafty, you can punch a hole in them, add a bit of twine or ribbon & tie them to a treat like a lollipop, a cutie orange or a small toy.  Hooray!  Valentine’s Day is checked off your never ending “to do” list!
