Who doesn’t love to hear what people love about you?  As much as some might deny it, positive affirmations are amazing!  I feel as families we are so comfortable with each other and we know we “have” to love each other that we sometimes don’t give the love each deserves.

That was my nice way of saying I live in a house of boys.  A husband, 3 small man children and a boy dog.  Most days it is like a frat house up in here.   There is lots of yelling.  Lots of rough housing.  Lots of name calling (poop head, butt face, etc.).  Everything is sticky and more than not…smelly.

I love you because Free Printable 8 x 10

I made this printable and placed it in a frame I already had on hand.  I made an 8 x 10 both in portrait and landscape orientation and also a 5 x 7 size in both directions so hopefully you have an extra frame you can use around the house as well.

I unwrapped them and placed them inside the jar.  I filled the void space at the top with the cotton balls so nothing would hit against the glass jar.

Then I added some ribbon around the jar lid and then printed off the birthday tag and attached with some twine.

I love to acknowledge the work teachers do with my kids.  Even though I am paying for swim lessons and the teachers are getting paid by the pool, I like to show my personal appreciation when the teachers take my kids, teach them and get to know them on a personal level.  When my boys look forward to telling their teachers funny things that happened and showing off their skills to them, I know they are bonding with them personally and I love that!

You can make these in a matter of minutes and be sure to scroll down to print off your free copy of the thank you poem gift tag!
