chicken chicken

Chickens like: strawberries, blackberries, blueberries, bread, pepper plants {grr},
locust shells, and chicken nuggets
Chickens don't mind: being picked up by the kids frequently and
Chaos snooping around in their coop daily
Chickens don't like: loud noises, sprinklers, sharing "human" food, and
being shooed off the patio area

Happy Tuesday friends!!
I've found some great printables from around the far corners of the internet for you today.

~do you need a gift for a hostess or a sweet neighbor family? This diy kit is adorable with the printed label. 
 ~how about a cute little printable for your backdoor or a playroom?
~are you in need of some fun birthday tags? I'm going to print these out to use on birthday gifts this year.
~how about a little sparkle for your bedroom wall?

Grab your coffee, tea, Diet Coke, or whatever strikes your fancy and have yourself a little printing session.

Thank you to all the wonderful ladies who so gladly share their talent and creativity with the rest of us!
