Welcome Jennifer Pilgrim from The Newlywed Pilgrimage! Mrs. Pilgrim’s blog features crafts, cooking, and conversation. Today, she is sharing a free printable to create your own spooktacular spider potion labels.

Spooky Spider Potion Labels- Free Printable

Halloween Potion Bottle Label - Spooky SpiderHalloween is one of my favorite holidays and this year I’m throwing a spooky spider bash. I designed these “Spiders Kiss” potion labels for some vintage medicine bottles that I have. However, you can adhere them to painted mason jars, empty opaque cosmetic bottles, or whatever you have on hand.

Spooky Spider Bottle Label Supplies - The Newlywed PilgrimageClick here to print the Spooky Spider Potion Labels. They are pre-formatted to print on Avery labels (template 5163) but you can click here to save the label if you’d like to formate it into a different size.

Spooky Spider Bottle Label - The Newlywed PilgrimageThe warning label is particularly spooky! It reads “WARNING: Ingesting this product will cause creeping ulcers, paralysis, and finally DEATH!”

dipped oreos & halloween topper {printable}

I have a fun and simple *free* cupcake topper printable to share with you all today…perfect for a Halloween Soiree.  Or little tags for your special food gift like these.


Yes.  Oreos.  Dipped in chocolate.  Because why?  Because I had to gift the Oreos before I ate them myself.  That’s why, if I need to be completely honest.

Click on the “topper print” link below for the download.  Use a 2 inch circle punch to get the white border.  Trick out however you see fit!

luggage tags {printable}

Who doesn’t want a purdy little tag to identify their luggage with on a big trip?  In the spirit of our trip to Ireland, I am sharing some luggage tags with cutesy little phrases on them.  Now I will be able to spot mine in a crowd.  As if the purple suitcase wasn’t clue enough!


Download your luggage tags and print on some heavy card stock.

Cut around the tag, front and back together (don’t separate them).


Write your info in and fold in the middle.



Punch and tie on anything you feel needs proper identification.


And have happy travels!


running inspiration {printable}

I am on my running-inspiration kick this week, continuing with these two printable cards.  A friendly reminder that thinking and decisions to do are everything.


Pick your favorite quote card to download:  Henry Ford or Marva Collins.  Print on card stock, cut on the lines, fold in half, and write your own message of pride and inspiration to a friend who might be trying something new or facing a particular challenge.  Fits an A2 envelope.

summertime {printable update}

Happy official-first-day-of-SUMMER!  Summer is great for lots of reasons.  But it really feels like summer when I get to sleep with the windows open and then when I wake up and the air is warm, there is a nice breeze, the birds are singing (but not the grackles, I despise the grackles).  Hopefully the 50º weather in the morning is done for a while and I can wake up feeling all summery…

This week I experimented with the canvas transfer technique to make a “Summertime” print for the porch. You can find tutorials here, here, and here.

(UPDATE:  Apparently glasses and reviewing aren’t working out for me, because after checking and double checking, I still spelled “livin'” wrong.  WHOOPS!  So the updated images are below.  I did, however, keep the finished WRONG print so you can see how a finished canvas looks…even if it is WRONG.  I will be crafting a new canvas and repurposing the old one, of course.  THANK YOU LEANNE for your keen eye!)


Now, it is truth that every time I hear the word “summertime” I start singing songs in my head.  Number one–DJ Jazzy Jeff & the Fresh Prince and Sublime.  (You are singing it your head now too, aren’t you.)  BUT, I didn’t really dig the look of “Summer, summer, summer time, oooo” on a canvas, so I went with the Sublime lyric.  Which was taken from the original composition by George Gershwin.  In the 1930s.  I digress.

I am setting up two downloads here…one will be the printable for framing.  One is the image, backwards, for canvas transferring.




Have fun!
