Father’s Day is this Sunday and if you’re still wondering what to do for dad this holiday, here are 10 DIYs to make for dad this Father’s Day. Many of them feature free printables so a heart felt gift is only a couple clicks away. If you’re feeling extra crafty (and a little ambitious), try making dad his own custom necktie or even some sweet and spicy snack mix.
If I don’t write something down I’m absolutely guaranteed to forget it. That’s why I still adore classic pen and paper lists. Today I’m sharing cute free printable note sheets that are perfect for grocery lists, to-do lists, and just about any type of list.
The free printable includes two side-by-side lists. Just download and print them on an 8.5″ x 11″ sheet of paper and cut along the center dotted line. And if you’re one of those people who love the satisfaction of crossing off items on a list, you can print out a ton and make your own little list pad. Just grab some washi tape to bind the top narrow edges together.
My printer prints 8.5″ x 11″ sheets without a border. If yours doesn’t just make sure to check the box “scale to fit” before printing so they design doesn’t get cut off. And while we’re on the subject, I’m a big fan of this printer because it prints up to 13″ x 19″ which is perfect for printing out wall art for your home and it’s much less than other printers that print this large. P.S. this isn’t sponsored I just thought I’d share a little about it.
After creating these tiny summer fruit illustrations I just want to put oranges, strawberries and watermelon slices on everything! What other printables would you love to see?

One of my favorite outdoor traditions has to be roasting marshmallows over a campfire and making s’mores. There’s something about gooey warm marshmallows that goes oh so perfectly with chocolate and graham crackers. These s’mores cake mix cookies have the same flavor as the popular summertime treat but with way less work (and no campfire necessary). A devil’s food cake mix is the base for these delicious s’more cookies and they are so quick to make that there are sure to become one of your new go to baking recipes.
Watch the video below to see how to make them!
I’ll admit I haven’t always been a huge fan of marshmallows. But when they are paired with chocolate and graham crackers I’m aways down. If you love all things chocolate, you could also stir in a cup of dark chocolate chips when you add the marshmallows for a little bit of melty chocolate goodness.
You can find graham cracker crumbs in the cookie aisle of your grocery store, right next to regular graham crackers. But if you already have graham crackers in your pantry just pulse them a few times in your food processor to make your own cookie crumbs. You can also place the cookie sheets in a zip top bag and use a meat mallet to break them into crumbs.
S’mores Cake Mix Cookies
1 devil’s food cake mix
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1 cup mini marshmallows
3/4 cup graham cracker crumbs
Can you believe we’re already into June? I sure can’t! I still feel like it was just last month that we moved across the country even though it’s been 9 months! Seriously where is all this time going?
You may have noticed that I’ve been posting less frequently the past couple of months. That’s because I’ve kept busy with tons of travel this year (2 more big trips this summer including an around the world trip in August) and have also switched the focus on my blog a little bit. Since January, I’ve created 28 Facebook DIY and food videos. 28!!! I’m having so much fun creating them and have received such great feedback from you guys. Thank you so much! Yet because these videos take longer to produce than a regular blog post, I’m posting less frequently. I’ve decided to commit to quality over quantity when it comes to blogging and I truly appreciate your support with that decision. I’m still active on Instagram, Snapchat (I’m @sarahheartslove) and Pinterest but Facebook is where you can see all the new videos first.

Office dots get a cute makeover by turning them into watermelons.
Now that it’s June it’s really starting to feel like summer. And my favorite things about summer are the warmer weather, wearing sundresses and eating as much watermelon as possible. Today I might not exactly be eating watermelon but I’m doing the second best thing—making cute watermelon stickers!
These stickers are made from those solid colored circle stickers found in just about every office supply cabinet. I’m not sure exactly what they are used for (I’ve never had a real office job with lots of filing and such) but I do know they make the most adorable watermelon stickers. I used my labels on pillow boxes, which are perfect for storing candy, gift cards and other tiny treats but they would also be great on cards, journals, and gift wrap.
Watch the video below to see just how easy they are to make!
Cut out a gift box using the gift box tool (you can find a step-by-step guide to using this tool here).
Before removing the labels from the paper backing, cut them in half. Place the green labels randomly around the outside of the cut out gift box. Place the red, pink, or yellow labels on top, slightly higher than the green labels so it looks like there’s a little bit of watermelon rind showing.
Use the black felt tip pen to dot the melons to give the appearance of tiny seeds. Assemble the gift box and use double sided tape to close one edge. Fill it with whatever fun summer treats you like and then close up the other end. Finish with some cute ribbon or twine.
