Hi, It’s Annette from Tips From a Typical Mom again, here with another fun free printable. Halloween is coming up and I have a fun Halloween door sign that just might save your sanity this Halloween Night.

Boo We Are Out Of Candy Free Printable Halloween Door Sign

Halloween is a fun time in our neighborhood. We live in a condo, so we are close to the neighbors and there are a ton of units all together. This makes our place a really popular place to trick or treat on Halloween so we run out of candy pretty early in the evening. I’m not one to spend a fortune on Halloween Candy, so we need this cute little sign to let everyone know when we run out of candy. It say’s “Boo! We are out of CANDY”. Isn’t it so cute?!

Inspired | C.S. Lewis

C.S. Lewis was so inspired.

I used a wreath from this blog to make this free printable.

I came upon this quote the other day and I just had to share it. I felt so inspired and full of gratitude for C.S. Lewis for writing this thought down, so that I could read it so many years later. I know we all sometimes wish we were, well, something we’re not. How great it is to be reminded that God created us exactly how we were supposed to be. I hope you like this too. I made a printable so I could hang it in my bathroom as a reminder, and you’re welcome to print it too and use it how you wish.

Here’s the PDF Version and here it is in .PNG version. (This printable is for personal use only!)



Faith Over Fear

I can’t figure out which is more frightening- the known or the unknown. I am a planner- I am not spontaneous unfortunately for my husband. I like to know what I am doing and when I am doing it at least 24 hrs in advance and most preferably a few days before. And now my family and I are in limbo, waiting on others to let us know what the future will bring us. We can’t make any decisions without knowing all the facts first. The fear of the unknown is weighing on us and at times it is crippling. In a few days we will know more facts and will be able to make more decisions but those decisions are also frightening. Has anyone else felt like this?


It is times like these where I need to remember that I shouldn’t focus on the fear. I need to have faith that everything will work out the way it is supposed to even if that means it could be heartbreaking. Faith need not be solely a religious thing but can even be a spiritual or even hopeful feeling. Hope is light. Faith can be present as an ever so small speck of light in complete darkness. But there is still light. There is still faith and hope in any situation.


Everyone around us is fighting their own personal struggles. No matter what they are, we need to remember to have that little speck of light, of hope, of faith, to help us move forward. I hope this quote can help you remember to find that light and let your faith be bigger than your fears. Get yours here if you have an iPhone 5 series or here if you have a 4 series. Or if you’d like to put it up on your wall you can download this as an 8×10 print.


XOXO, Brenda

After School Checklist for Kids Free Printable

Hi, It’s Annette again! Guest posting from Tips From a Typical Mom.

We all know how hectic the house can get right after school when the kids come running in the door. They are starving and need a break from all the structure they’ve had all day. Having an after school checklist to keep them on track and get things done for the next day is a must around our house. I’m sharing it with you because I have a sneaking suspicion that you might need it too.
