Happy Tickets

July 21, 2009


A friend of mine recently shared a tip from Dr. Sear’s The Discipline Book that uses a ticket reward system for young children, as an alternative to a star chart. Our method differs a little from Dr. Sears’ in that we use the tickets in conjunction with 1-2-3 Magic, and Kai’s ultimate goal is to have three tickets at dinnertime, but I think it’s working. Score 1 for mom! (Or -1 for that awful run-on sentence.)


I designed these with our objective of three in mind, but if you’re interested in downloading what Kai dubbed ‘Happy Tickets’ click here for the PDF file.

Maybe I stayed up past — way past — my usual bedtime of midnight to hand-letter and design this. But my Staedtler illustration pens and a 9×13 pan of brownies kept me fine company while Ryan snored away on the couch.

So do you have a honey that can use a little direction in honoring you this mother’s day? Download this free greeting card, then check off your wants needs. Because our significant others can’t read our minds. What? You didn’t know? That’s okay. I forget all the time.

Some Valentine’s day cards I whipped up, using quotes from one of my all-time fave romantic movies, Moulin Rouge! And since free is all the rage these days, below is a downloadable PDF of these little cards, sized just like the ones you’d buy from the supermarket (back in the day) and hand out to all your school friends. Remember those?
