Like a Tree Bible Journaling Page Inspiration

This post contains affiliate links.  Thanks for supporting Pitter & Glink!
Hey, y'all!  A couple of weeks ago, I shared a fun collaboration that I worked on with Jennifer Hayes Yates.  Jennifer wrote an awesome FREE devotion for y'all entitled "Like a Tree," and I designed some fun printable Bible journaling goodies to go along with it.  Well, I couldn't let y'all have all the fun with the devotion and printable, so I recently created an entry in my journaling Bible using the freebies we shared with y'all.  Today I want to show you the finished page in hopes of inspiring you to create an new entry in your journaling Bible.

DIY "Be Kind" Floral Drop Cloth Banner

This Sizzix Design Team post contains affiliate links.  Thanks for supporting Pitter & Glink!
Hey, y'all!  For me, the summer is officially over. (Insert sad face)  In my school district, teachers went back to work Tuesday, so I'm busy prepping for the brand new school year.  I met some of my students at open house, and they seemed like a great bunch of tenth graders, so I hope that we're going to have a great, productive year of learning together.  One thing I always like to do at the beginning of the new school year is make some new decorations for my classroom, so last week I whipped up an easy-to-make banner.  Today I'm sharing the tutorial with you in case you'd like to make one yourself.
DIY Be Kind Drop Cloth Banner
I wanted my banner to be a reminder to my students to always be kind to one another because, y'all, sometimes tenth graders can be MEAN.  But with that being said, the really fun thing about the banner is that you can put any phrase on it you want and embellish it anyway you want to have a piece of decor that is uniquely you.

Hey, y'all!  I am so excited about today's post!  First, I'm excited to be posting after a short blogging break.  (My family and I went on vacation, so I didn't have time to work on blog stuff.)  Second, I am super excited to be sharing a freebie with y'all, and this is probably my favorite freebie to date!  I have collaborated with awesome Christian author and blogger Jennifer Hayes Yates to bring y'all a free printable devotion, along with coordinating Bible journaling printable goodies!  How cool is that?!
Free Devotion Bible Journaling Printable
If you've followed my blog for a while, you know that I am obsessed with Bible journaling and hand-lettering and sharing free printables with my readers.  I have been wanting to share a devotion with y'all, but I haven't felt confident enough inspired enough to actually write a devotion myself.  A couple of weeks ago, I had a lightbulb moment.  I realized that I knew a Christian author who writes devotions weekly, and I thought maybe she'd be willing to collaborate with me.  So I emailed Jennifer Hayes Yates, author of the Bible study Let's Run and writer of the Christian blog One Thing.  To my delight, Jennifer was excited to collaborate, and she wrote an awesome devotion for y'all entitled "Like a Tree."  It's all about growing in Christ.  Today she is offering the devotion to y'all in her blog post.  Read on for the link...

Make a Neon Hand Lettered Tote Bag + Free Cut File

This post contains affiliate links and is sponsored by Expressions Vinyl.
Hey, y'all!  It's finally OFFICIALLY summer time.  I LOVE summer!  I'm sure a major factor in my love for summer is that I'm a teacher and get a long break from school, but I truly love the weather, fresh produce, summer adventures, and the bright colors that pop up in fashion and home decor.  The brightest of all bright colors--neon colors--were the inspiration for today's post.  I have teamed up with Expressions Vinyl to share an awesome neon HTV project with y'all, along with a free hand-lettered Silhouette cut file so that you can make your own.  And as if that wasn't enough goodness for one post, you can enter to win a $50 gift card to Expressions Vinyl.
Neon Hand Lettered Bible Verse Tote Bag
Y'all know that I just LOVE hand-lettering, and one of my favorite things to hand-letter is Bible verses.  I recently hand lettered this verse from Psalms 139, and rather than just making it into a printable, I thought it would be the perfect hand-lettered design to turn into a cut file.  When I received some brightly colored neon HTV from Expressions Vinyl, I couldn't pick just one color to use, so I decided to use them all!  Yes, making a design from different colors of vinyl might seem intimidating, but it's really not that difficult.  You can make your own in a few easy steps using a few supplies.
