Free Valentine's Day iPhone Wallpaper

Happy Valentine's Day darlings! I think this may be one of my favorite iPhone wallpapers I've designed so far.

During our first year of marriage I was finishing my last year of college, and my husband and I often had opposite schedules. He used to leave me little love notes in my lunch box, and I would leave messages for him on our bathroom mirror. It was a nice way to let each other know we were thinking of the other. I treasured those little messages and that's what inspired me for this month's iPhone wallpaper.

I really need to start leaving him notes again. Plus even a simple lipstick print can send a very sexy message. I know my husband loves it.

Enjoy!

Christmas Glitter iPhone Wallpaper


Christmas always get me in the mood for all things sparkly. The lights, the glitter and the glow are all so warm and festive. I created two designs this month so you can add some festive flare to both your home screen and lock screen. Sometimes wallpaper designs look a little busy against all the apps on the home screen, but the glitter simply pops.

 Enjoy the sparkle, and have yourself a merry little Christmas everyone!

Free Printable Christmas Gift Tags {Sister Inspirations}

In an effort to get a jump-start on Christmas, we decided to focus November's Sister Inspirations on Christmas gift tags. We wanted to design something that would be a great last minute detail but still add a fun finished look to our gifts.

I used three traditional Christmas expressions for my tags, then I designed a red version and a green version of each.

The phrases I used are "No peeking," "Jolly Holly-Day" and of course "Merry Christmas." Feel free to print as many as you like for your own personal use.

Amy, over at The Happy Tulip, infused her sense of humor into the gift tags she designed by adding famous Christmas movie quotes including my favorite: "Merry Christmas you filthy animal" from Home Alone 2. I do love those movies. Well, the first two anyway. But I digress, seriously check out Amy's tags because they are adorable and hilarious.

Two Coconut Milk Ice Cream Recipes {Sister Inspirations}

Welcome to the October edition of Sister Inspirations!

Amy and I have both recently started to eat a primal/paleo diet with our families, and that became our theme for this month. My mother-in-law bought me the KitchenAid ice cream attachment for my birthday that I've been wanting to try out, which gave us an excuse to try our hands at coconut milk ice cream and all the fixins'.



Amy is sharing two delicious homemade chocolate shell recipes and a toffee crumble over at The Happy Tulip. The mint shell pairs really well with my coffee mocha ice cream and I threw the toffee crumble into my snickerdoodle ice cream. The result was fabulous.

If you don't have an ice cream maker you can just freeze the batter. Using the KitchenAid makes it a little creamier, but I tried both way, and they both were delicious.



Coffee Mocha Ice Cream

Servings: 4

Ingredients

1 can coconut milk
1/4 cup honey
2 tablespoons instant coffee
1 tablespoon vanilla


Directions

Add all ingredients to a blender and blend on medium for 2-3 minutes, until mixture is creamy. 

At this point you can use an ice cream maker and follow their directions. Or you can also pour mixture into a freezer safe container and freeze for 3-4 hours or until desired consistency.

Snickerdoodle Ice Cream with Toffee Crumble

Servings: 4

Ingredients

1 can coconut milk
1/4 cup honey
4 teaspoons molasses
1 tablespoon vanilla
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg

Directions

Add all ingredients except the toffee to a blender and blend on medium for 2-3 minutes, until mixture is creamy. 

At this point you can use an ice cream maker and follow their directions. Or you can also pour mixture into a freezer safe container and freeze for 3-4 hours or until desired consistency. Make sure to add the toffee crumble before the ice cream is frozen.
