A Cheerful New Home!

Hello peaches! Notice anything new? Yup, Tickled Peach Studio has a cheerful and oh so cute new look! I can finally say I am 100%, head over heels, giggles and laughter, in love with this new site. It fills my heart every single time I look at it. Take a few minutes and have a look around at all the cuteness!

First you’ll notice at the top an oh so charming new logo for Tickled Peach Studio. Beautifully stunning calligraphy from the super talented Angelique Ink!  Y’all, finding and loving a logo for your brand can be a difficult journey. Well, maybe just for me – the girl who changes her mind a lot! This logo completes me. I even added it to my iPhone case so I can carry it with me everywhere.

As for the new website, I can not thank Casey at Sugar Studios Design enough! I have been itching for a long time to work with Casey, but for some reason kept pushing it off thinking I could do this by myself with a basic template purchased off the web. Silly me! I knew I wanted a cheerful, colorful, happy place and gave Casey every confidence in the world that she could come up with something amazing for me. Boy did she deliver! From the second she showed me the first design proof  it has been love at first sight.

Thank you for stopping by my new little home! I hope you love it as much as I do!

You want to know the fun part? These lunchboxes have removable faceplates. So when your child is tired of their lunchbox you don’t have to go out and buy a whole new lunchbox – just replace the faceplates! It gives them a whole new fresh look. The faceplates come in pairs – one for the front and one for the back – and are are waterproof so you can wipe them off if they get dirty.

Enjoy the summer! Back to school time will be here before you know it. I can not wait to send my daughter to school with her lunchbox in the fall!

Free Printable | Behavior Reward Chart

Several months ago we started to have more frequent tantrums and issues with not being nice to our friends at school. In effort to gain control of the situation, I went in search of ideas to help teach good behavior to our always moving, very active, strong willed three year old. Like most young children, our little one loves stickers. We have books and books of stickers. Most days we all end up with a sticker on our hand or shirts. And like most children they all love rewards. Julianne always looked forward to Thursdays at school when she knew that she would be getting a treat out of the treasure chest if she had been good that week. So I decided to put together our own behavior reward chart to use at home!

Free Printable Behavior Reward Chart | Tickled Peach Studio

Our chart has six rows with six boxes to fill with reward stickers. It might have been to much for our first go around, but I made some easy attainable tasks for her. We decided to start with cleaning up toys, taking a nap, sharing with others, not hurting our friends, listening to Mommy and Daddy, and having a good bedtime. I recommend starting slow with easy tasks so your child can get used to the reason for the chart. Our first chart included some lovely hand drawn stick figure drawings to help her remember what they were. We found some super cute paw print stickers at The School Box to fill our boxes with.

Here are some helpful tips for behavior reward charts:
- The purpose of the behavior reward chart is to help you child learn good behavior on their own. Do not try to set them up to earn a sticker. For example. don’t say to them “If you clean up your toys you will earn a sticker”. You want your child to be excited about getting a sticker all on their own.
- If they do a task while away from home, congratulate them on the spot for earning a sticker and then give them a sticker when you get home. I had trouble remembering to do this, but if you tell your child they earned a sticker they will most likely remind you when you get home.
- Never take away stickers! On several occasions a sticker was earned for doing a task and then two seconds later the misbehavior starts. Ah, life with a child is always a roller coaster ride!

Now for the fun part – rewards! I rewarded her with a small treat from a treasure box for each row completed. I filled a box with things from the dollar store and the Target dollar bins. I did not put candy in our treasure chest, because if she filled a row right before bedtime I didn’t want her picking out a lollipop! Once all the rows were filled in she earned her big reward goal! She picked her big reward goal out before starting the chart so it is something she is excited about.

We love our charts so much that I am so happy to share these with you! You have two options – cats or dogs – to choose from. The free printable files include editable text fields for entering in your child’s name, tasks, and big reward goal before printing. Or you can simply print and write everything in. Enjoy!

Tickled Peach Studio Manifesto

I very rarely share the personal side of me, but I have been inspired to be more real with y’all. Last week I had the pleasure of attending an Authenticate Workshop led by the fantastic Whitney English. To sit in a room full of other creative women entrepreneurs is amazing and energizing! We each had our own unique story and our own unique dreams.

During part of the workshop Whitney encouraged us to write down our manifesto – or things we believed in. This was my favorite exercise of the whole day. I also loved hearing the rest of the group share a little piece of who they really are and what they believed in. I want to share mine with you and encourage you to write down your manifesto some time. I think I might even print this out an frame it for my office!
