Top 10 Posts from 2013

I finally got an afternoon in to work on the blog... I am one happy lady! And, there's no better time to recap the top 10 posts from 2013 then now.

I was excited to look back and see the number of people who had stopped by on my many posts. Here are the top 10, starting with the most popular.

I can only hope to have even more great posts in 2014!

Free Fall Printable | Freebie

Happy Monday! No? Okay, if you're like me... Monday's are the enemy of the week. I absolutely hate Mondays. But I'm pretty sure you've heard this rant before, so, I've decided to try and cheer everyone's Monday up with a free fall printable!

It's been a long time since I've done a freebie around here. I don't know about you, but I've had enough of this summer. It didn't seem to be the greatest one in terms of weather and well, there's just something about fall. Coziness, sweaters, cool crisp air, colorful leaves... and of course, the delicious food that comes with the harvesting.

Since we have put all renovations to a halt, I'm dying to go out and buy some fall decorations! And then I thought, why not create one for you too. While I was making it and taking pictures... I found the perfect spot for it in the kitchen - love!! Anyways, here it is, my free fall printable.

These are just a few of the words that represent this awesome time of year! I can't wait to bake a pumpkin pie or even my hubby's favorite pumpkin cake (I really need to update the photos on that recipe). In the meantime, I'm going to convince the hubs that a stop at the dollar store is a must tonight to see what other fall decor I can find!

Hope you have a great week out there.

I've been partying again :)

Surprise Mustache Birthday Invitations | Freebie

Okay, I suck. I told you I'd be back last night and I wasn't. So, you can have this as a freebie. I was going to just post it and tell you about it, but nope, I'm the sucky blogger that didn't pull through on her words... so free stuff for you - the old surprise mustache birthday invitations are yours for the taking.

Well, at least the front is. I can't really create a back that will pertain to you, but I will give you the details so you can create your own... sound good? Good.

So it was a week or two back when some people decided we should throw some other person a surprise shindig. So, we kind of are and I kind of made some invites. Yup. I went with mustaches. Isn't that the in thing? Anyways, here's what I made.

And, here's the graphic for you. You can have it and make whatever you want out of it because I'm making it extra huge (8.5x11)...

Oh, and here's the back of it...

To create the back of the invite I used:

background color: #bfbfc1
regular font color: #ffffff
dark grey font color: #666670
font: Myriad Pro

Now, if you'll excuse me. I need my beauty rest... the big day is fast approaching.

I've been out partying again :)

Win! Clay Stud Earrings | Giveaway

Okay, I was going to wait until Valentine's Day to do this giveaway, but I just couldn't. You guys are just so darn cute and I kind of got excited after listing everything on the etsy shoppe yesterday that I had to do it now.

Here's the deal. If you win, you can have any... and I mean any pair of earrings that are listed in the shop, including a stamped initial of your choice. But you have to show me some love. (Oh and when I say any, I mean any ONE pair.) Deal. Deal.

1. Okay, here's where you show me how much you love me, or hate me, or just put up with me to get a new pair of earrings. Comment below, tell me what you're favorite pair is, tell me that Monday's suck or just say hi. Anything will do. But you MUST comment below.

2. Want a second chance to win? Go to Facebook and share my status... or just share it because you want to help a sister out and spread the word. The post will be something about this contest... that's the one.

Here's what you could be receiving in the mail (or you could pick a different pair?):

Comment - get an entry. Share - get an entry. Tell me how much you love me, get another entry. Just kidding. Go to it and please tell your friends.

Spread the love - it's (almost) Valentine's Day for goodness sake! And, you have two weeks to enter - so I'm closing this dealio on Feb 25 (2013) and will randomly select a winner from those who have commented below. (If you shared on Facebook - bonus entry, but you MUST comment below!)

Free Valentine's Day Printables

After creating the Valentine's Day banner a couple of weeks back, I decided maybe a few photo cards would look nice too. Only this time, I decided to print them off and use them as decor.

free valentine's day printables.

See how cute they look? I set them next to this teddy bear that the hubby gave me back when we were first dating. He is my absolute favourite. You may notice the band-aid and yellow stains, he actually survived a bad house fire we had when we first moved in together. I couldn't get rid of him, so now he sits reminding of us of everything we have to be thankful for, including each other.

Okay, enough of the sappiness. Here are a three {yay!!} free Valentine's Day printable designs that you can use for photo cards, regular cards or even photos around the house to decorate.

And the Winner Is...

Jennifer Connell Bruce - she is the winner of the Pamper You and Your Tree Giveaway! The Willow Wheat Spa and I want to thank everyone who participated... I have some new followers on Facebook and sold my first set of star ornaments - YAY!

star ornaments - martha.anne

I will definitely have to do another giveaway in the near future - maybe team up with someone else?

The rest of the weekend was a success. We painted the banister, I did a little baking (okay one batch of cookies counts?), went to a work Christmas party, visited with the family, the hubby made an amazing roast on his new smoker and our favorite realtor stopped by for a visit and spoiled us for Christmas! Oh and I'll be posting pics of the banister later this week... It's about time I shared some before and afters... Can you guess what color we painted it?

Oh and the countdown continues until the Christmas Break... which I am very much breaking for - two weeks off and I can't wait. Today... another Monday, was a good one. Let's just say the ice rain called for bad weather and working from home. I love these days... I can get up nice and early and be finished early afternoon. There's nothing better than working curled up on the couch.

Anyways, have a great work week out there...

Another Free Printable Christmas Photo Card

Free Christmas photo card - take two. Here's the other one you've been waiting for. (If you missed the first one - here it is). I have this available in two file formats, the .png so you can put it over your favorite photo and customize it or the .jpg so you can print it off and put a message on it.

Add the family - download the .png here
Add a message - download the .jpg here

If you love my photo cards but want something customized, be sure to contact me and I can offer you some pricing. Otherwise… this one is all yours. Of course, I must thank Spoon Graphics again for the mistletoe and penguins - they made this card a breeze. Oh and here's the card in use… a little bit of Hank:

Happy Holidays from Hank!

Other than that, we're almost at the end of the week. Lookout, here comes Friday and we're that much closer to the holiday season. YAY! I can't promise I'll be back tomorrow, so if not, be sure to have a great weekend.

Free Printable Christmas Photo Card!

Okay so here is Christmas card one of two. I have another one coming your way before the end of the week, with an empty space in it… Which means, you can put it over your favorite photo and personalize it… YAY! Actually, I'll make it with a white space as well so that you can just write your favorite message if you aren't the photogenic type. The only deal is… you have to come back in a couple of days to get it. It's kind of like Christmas, no peeking!

Until then, here's another freebie. And, I must thank Spoon Graphics for the free illustrated snowman and bird. It definitely made the card making that much quicker!

Free Christmas Photo Card (martha.anne)

Not to toot my horn, but I really love this card and I hope you enjoy it too. I'm actually thinking I might get it printed and framed…

In other news… I think I've convinced the hubby to build us a mantle. Stay tuned, I'll share more info about that this week… I must say - I've fallen in love and can't wait for it to be built.

Free Giveaway: Pamper You and Your Tree

Just in time for the holidays, I'm teaming up with the Willow Wheat Spa to offer you a chance to pamper your fingernails and tree before the holiday rush.

All you have to do is like martha.anne and the Willow Wheat Spa on Facebook and then tell us quickly why you and your tree need a pampering. On December 11th, if you've done all three things, you'll be entered into the draw to win a pedicure and five hand-stitched ornaments!

That's it… that's all it takes! What are you waiting for, go tell us why and be sure to stop by our pages and like them today. (I knew I could make this Monday worth it.)  :o)

A Couple of Free Printables

One blog post last week, more this week - promise. While battling the flu and finishing assignment two for school, I definitely didn't make it to the blog… or the craft pile. But enough is enough, this girl has got to get her butt in gear. People are already decorating for Christmas and my table is full of ornaments I need to get sold! So, it's Monday, a new week and a new opportunity to just go for it. While I plug away at getting things in order, here are a couple of free printables I stumbled upon on Pinterest while cooped up on the couch last week. I absolutely love them!

Printables: Foxy Bookmarks (Lonnie Jacobsen)

These printable foxy bookmarks by Lonnie Jacobsen are absolutely adorable... and come in two fun colors - orange and blue (click here to get them). I think I need to print them off and finish reading the 50 Shades of Grey series. Yes, I'm that pathetic... I haven't had time to finish reading them yet and I'm dying to know what happens. Shh... don't tell!

DIY Paper Popsicle Memory Game (Eat Drink Chic)

DIY Paper Popsicle Memory Game (Eat Drink Chic)

When I saw these on Pinterest I fell in love. I may not have any kids yet, but I'm definitely printing them off and keeping them around for the nieces and nephews - they are adorable. These colorful printable popsicles are from Eat Drink Chic and can be downloaded here. Perhaps a great stocking stuffer for the little ones in your life?

All of this excitement and I forgot to say… Happy Monday! (I'm trying to be optimistic) Okay, how about - Yay to it almost being over! :o)

Have fun with these great freebies. Talk soon - promise!
