a free printable {or two} for you!

I realized recently that I haven’t designed any fun freebies lately.  Life has been getting the best of me and I’ve just put it on the back-burner.  Since I missed it and I thought it was time you got a freebie from EC, I’ve designed the “Just Because” collection.  This set of four cards work for all occasions {although, hopefully they’re not too girly to give to a guy}, so feel free to download, print, and share!

Download the full collection here:

Just Because Card Collection

Enjoy!

happy almost easter!

It’s April!  Agh!

But you know what the beginning of the month means!  Free Stuff!

For starters, Ez over at Creature Comforts  posted the most recent printable calendar.  So cute!

Then we’ve got the newest desktop calendar wallpapers available for download at Smashing Magazine.  They really have a bunch of great options this month!

I have this one on our desktop and it is so helpful for organizing icons!

…and I have this one on our laptop because I love the bunting 🙂

There’s also a free print available for download at Jones Design Company.

{it’s lookin’ a lot like an “April Showers” theme around here, huh?}

…and finally, a bunch of super cute Easter printables from Mooo.

{you’ll have to type in mooo.com.au/easter-printables because wordpress won’t let me share this link}

Happy Downloading!

the crescent roll chronicles: part 2

I’m realizing how easy it is to make a number of yummy food items with crescent rolls.  If you haven’t tried Andreas yet, be sure to check out the recipe HERE.  They’re yummy sausage and cream cheese crescent rolls that I usually make for Thanksgiving breakfast and they’re super easy.  I guess that post should’ve been titled “the crescent roll chronicles: part 1”, but I didn’t think of it at the time…although, it does explain why this is part 2!

Part 2 of the crescent roll chronicles is another super easy crescent roll recipe for cinnamon rolls found via Pinterest from HERE!

Ingredients for rolls:

2 cans of crescent rolls

1 stick of butter (softened)

1/2 cu. of white or brown sugar (I used white)

2 tblspn. of cinnamon

Ingredients for glaze:

1/2 cup of powdered sugar

2 tblspns of milk or water

1 tspn of vanilla

Step 1:

Mix sugar, butter and cinnamon together until it creates a paste like this…

Step 2:

Lay crescent rolls triangles out on pan and smear cinnamon/sugar paste onto each triangle

Step 3:

Roll up (wide side, first)

Step 4:

Bake as directed.

(*Note: either grease the pan or bake on foil because the cinnamon filling does ooze out and caramelize onto the pan!)

Step 5:

While they’re baking mix glaze using milk (or water), powdered sugar, and vanilla

 Step 6:

Drizzle glaze on top of cinnamon rolls after they come out of the oven.

And, serve.

Yummmm!  They’re so good. Let me know what you think!

On another exciting note (yes, cinnamon rolls are exciting), Asa’s faux bois rug came in this weekend.  His reading/play nook is now complete!

So fun!

And finally, Ez over at Creature Comforts posted the February printable calendar.  Be sure to download yours HERE–they’re the cutest!

P.S.  Don’t forget to look for my post on Wednesday at Dr. Mommy Online!

P.S.S.  Did you watch the Bachelor last night?!  Ugh!  Courtney…
