tiny prints inspired sign designs & a GIVEAWAY

I recently received an email from  Tiny Prints  and were inspired to design a sign from one..or two of their cards.
We were humbled to be featured on their blog to say the least. then grateful and then panicked!  in the end here is what we came up with.

:::the Making Spirits Bright sign:::


and the inspiration card…


 …distressed vintag”ey” lettering painted in a chalkboard look would sit perfect in a woodsy fall/winter theme.

simple yet powerful words that challenge us reminiscent of fun & carefree christmas’s long ago.
dashing through the snow all snuggled up with cozy knitted blankets.  drinking hot chocolate and laughing with family….
now THAT makes my heart contagiously merry– let’s be contagious this holiday season.

:::the Glinda sign:::

with a metallic gold crown all distressed to perfection!


and the inspiration card


you all know me and my love for power words..words tell a story of who we are & who we are becoming.  words that are visibly written renew our hope everyday as soon as our feet hit the floor.
i knew when i read these words from glinda – the wizard of oz that we had to make this sign.
i envision it it little girls and big girls rooms alike.  my prayer is that our spirits are stirred as we are awoken to just how powerful we really are to effect change - first in ourselves and when we do that
we effect change in those around us.

If I had a room in my house dedicated to my sweet granddaughter, I’d probably have to snag the “glinda” sign too! Keep up the beautiful, creative, inspiring work!

Vicki - Love both your signs but having a little granddaughter makes the Glinda sign the one I would choose! She is moving out of her crib and into a bigger bedroom in the near future–look out world! Your sign would make a wonderful gift for her new room!

Tracy Suro - They are beautiful!! I would choose the “Making Spirits Bright” sign and I think I would put it right smack dab in the foyer to remind me as I come and go to slow down this Christmas season and focus less on the to do list and more on enjoying it!

Amanda - Oh, my. That beautiful Glinda sign makes me want to write my novel, win a football game, jump on a freshly-made bed, sing with a marching band, swing my baby girl in the sunshine and give up coffee because girl, I can! If I won it, I’d hang it triumphantly next to my desk for those moments when I forget how He stoops to make me great and I’d probably parade every woman I know in there and say, “See, you’ve got power, too, friend!”

Melissa @ the lovely words - the glenda one and it would go in my girls room! but i LOVE everything!!

Jeannine @ The Concrete Cottage - Oh I love them both, but I think I’d have to choose the Glinda sign so I could display it all year. And I can’t decide if it would go best in my craft room, or my living room. Decisions, decisions…

For that reason, through many trials, especially right now, it just seems appropriate. I’m battling schools and people telling what she can’t do, instead of, we are going to push her and give her the success that we know she can do. I feel like, somewhere is that hidden power in both of us to keep plugging away & achieve the dream.
Thank you for this chance at winning this great sign.

Devon - Oh I love them both so much. But I will say the Glinda sign just really hit me in the heart. I have two girls that share a room and I would so love for them to see this every day. It is truly my wish for them to always know their worth.

Carissa Cady - Glinda. Last year I started a photography business. It took a lot of courage to put myself out there not knowing if I would get any clients.

Crystal Kellner - I LOVE the Glinda Sign. A perfect message to put in my daughter’s room!

kelly kelso - Glinda… I love to empower my three daughters and two year old granddaughter with
prayers and meaningful quotes such as this one from The Wizard of Oz! I have filled my entry way hall with what I call my “wall of words” I have your “Grace’s Prayer” and “I Am” along with several other little beauties that everyone can see as they go out into the world to take on the day or after coming home and maybe needing a “pick me up” This beauty would be a perfect addition! Thank you for sharing your gift with us Tiffini!

Shana Angell - I am in LOVE with them both…Such a hard decision, I could think of a million places I could use them. But if I have to pick only one…I would say the Glinda sign. I would hang it in my teeny bopper daughters room. High School is such a hard time for teens. She is my princess and she is learning how to stand on her own two feet. Would love to have a daily reminder that the power is within and she can concur the world, she just needs to believe in herself.

Angela - Making Spirits Bright!!! I would put it in a hallway with this picture I have of our son laughing so big!

Whitney sigler - “Glenda” I think I would give it to our 21 year old (only) daughter. To hang in her room. She is just so special. She had had health issues since birth and had come through it all like a champ. Now though the guys/boys in her life. Oh the poor thing just wants a man to love her. I’ve explained that she can be fierce and strong on her own. I think she is realizing that now. I just love everything you do.

Jennifer Kaplan - I LOVE both of them for so many different reasons…they just are both powerful words to speak over family and all who enter into the house, and a beautiful handiwork. I especially love the Glinda one because it reminds me of my daughter, Eliana, and her determination…it’s the choice we make to utilize God’s gifts within us everyday. She is an inspiration to me in that way. This would make the perfect declaration for over her bed as a sweet reminder of the strength in her little will. Thank you… And looking forward to following you on IG!

I love the Wizard of Oz sign, if I won the Glenda Sign I would place the sign in my granddaughter’s room. Our granddaughter lives with her grandfather and I. She is 12 years old and has dyslexia and her mother has MS. Life can be difficult at times and like any mother or grandmother we do not want our children to hurt. My husband and I are so blessed to be able to have her with us, she has taught us so much about love. I took her to see “Wicked” a few years ago and we just repainted her bedroom and adding some new items. This sign would be perfect for her bedroom. Thank you so much for offering this sign. Warmest regards, Martia

let’s get some grandma’s cooking going on…& a recipe

gotta love me some grandma cookin!!


you know those people that are like paula deen and the neely’s all rolled into one?  they can just can cook?  when you are around them they start sharing about what they cooked for dinner
and it is what i call grandma cooking…you know the kind right?  well – my sister in law works with me now and unknowingly gets me all salivating and the rest of the day obsessed with
fried chicken!

this recipe in particular i thought the kids would really love-

confession:  last week she shared she made friend chicken ( friend is a typo but i am leaving it cause it made me smile.  i kinda like it…friend chicken…ha!
…from scratch…i was craving it all day and even went out that night and bought the chicken
breasts and potatoes ( the kind in a box but they did say 100% real potatoes )  

and i had two solid days of endless errands so what does any modern day mom do?  she runs through kentucky fried chicken.
i eventually did cook the chicken.  i didn’t want it to go ba but it wasn’t fried it was baked.

anyway…on with the story

carissa made these on our summer family vacation ( the one i was not at this and she was recreating the scene of how everyone
loved them.  and yes…i did buy all the stuff and i did make them.

confession:  yesterday was my first clean eating day and i am not eating bread.  go figure

but dakota loved them and on my first cheat meal i will have to make them.  wouldn’t they be fabulous for football games and chilly fall evenings
while playing a board game or with some friends..a little twist on pizza and you can pair it with chips, fries, a salad or all three:)

and ya gotta have the cold pickles!  we like vlasic — a must at our house


carrissa’s pizza hoagies

::fyi – these are originally made with the big ol link of sausage  & you slice it to lay on the hoagie.
( see image at end of post ) ( or similar ) and carrissa says they are best made this way.  but if you or your
family don’t like that then do whatever you like::

a package of your favorite sub rolls
a can of pizza sauce
a link of eckridge sausage or pepperoni, ground turkey, hamburger, veggies…see what i mean?
a block ( not shredded ) of cheddar and mozzarella

cut sub roll in half and spread sauce on each side.  i like mine saucy but do whatever you love.  then i put four
big slices of pepperoni and sliced the cheeses putting oh…about 4-5 slices of each.  slap them all together and
tear off a big piece of aluminum foil and wrap them up like a burrito.  pop them in the oven at 350 for at least
20 minutes then check to see if cheese all gooey.  if not..cook a little longer.  that’s it.

and that is it!  

warning::  grandma cooking is known to cause the pants to fit a wee bit tighter if eaten every night but i sure do miss that kind of cooking.
we might try adding in one grandma cooking meal a week where we all sit around the table Walton style and the other 6 days…chicken strips

if you have favorite grandma cooking recipe’s i would love to try them and share them with all of you.
just send them to my email at

this girl hasn’t been a paula deen for years…well before technology but i would like to put a little down home family cooking and table time
back into my life.  just a day…can’t be that hard right?




Sarita - These are yummy!! I make them on hamburger buns! I have a recipe to send to you….I have an image of God making bread!! He’s laughing,and inhaling the scent of yeast! He’s laughing because He knows how much we all will love fresh from the oven bread!! And how it’s going to go right to our hips!
Add a chopped salad to this meal makes it seem healthy!! :-)

Suzanne - I am putting my fingers
up in the “not allowed”
pose, because I am trying
to back away from the
grandma cooking and
get back into my healthy
routine. It’s been a very
stressful month, and when
I’m stressed, I don’t have
a huge interest in cooking,
which means my family
gets the grandma treatment.
Usually, the store-bought
or restaurant variety, which
the normal me wouldn’t
want. But, grandma cooking
does have its place ~ it can
most definitely comfort : )

Thanks for sharing your recipes,
and your heart, here.

xo Suzanne

Lemonade Makin' Mama - Oh my gosh… YUM!
