Oh boy! Big, big news over here!
Guess what awesomeness just happened to me last week?
THAT! Can ya believe it?
I became an U.S. Citizen!
And it all happened in a blink of an eye.
So much happening lately. I have been just creating and re-arranging to-do lists after to-do lists, checking off tasks, pulling my hair out thinking of the ones to come and didn’t really have much time to sink in all the big changes around me.
Anywho, the process is all set and done just in time!
In time for my very first evah 4th of July Celebration as U.S. citizen. Super-exciting!
To celebrate, of course, I painted the occasion:
Look how cute they are all printed and cut! Ready to decorate your cupcakes, tarts, hot-dogs, and the like:
Now, my dear outside-of-US friends. Don’t even dream that I forgot about you! OF COURSE I am well aware that you have some different date to celebrate independence or maybe you don’t have that date in the calendar at all! Maybe you have a national day instead!
Anywho, I wouldn’t forget about ya, sweets! 🙂 Here you have the same set to use on any party occasion.
How yummy is that?
I won’t annoy you too much with close-up pictures of the process this time.
Just ONE. Because it is too cute to ignore.
Look at that:
See the heart popping out of the flag? So round and squeezable, I wanna pinch it! 😀
Ok, enough with the silly talk. Ready to download and get that party started?

Now tell me sweets, if you don’t celebrate independence day on July 4th, when is your country’s scream-out-loud date? Or if you don’t celebrate independence, what is an important date in your country?
Happy weekend + happy summer-party, peeps!
And Happy 4th of July for those of us that celebrate it 😉
Smooches for ya,
Congrats to you my fellow American!!!! Have a Happy 4th of July!!! 😀
thanks for the party flags they’re so pretty 🙂
I’ll use them for my best friend’s birthday
Congratulations Raine! And thank you once again for the desktop and yummy printables.
In Australia our big day to celebrate our country is Australia Day on 26th January. It is supposed to celebrate Captain Cook’s first landing in Australia. However it’s not quite a celebration day for the indigenous population who’s ancestors were already here before Cook ‘discovered’ Australia.
Actually a more imporant day for Australia is Anzac Day which is celebrated on Aprl 25th each year. ANZAC stands for Australia New Zealand Army Corps and the day is to remember the landing and battle at Tobruk in WWII. A day when we remember and honour our soldiers, past and present.
whose not who’s. Some English major I am. Sheesh!
Raine, congratulations to you!! Hope your first Independence Day celebration with us is awesome! 🙂
FABulousness!!!! Thank you.. love both sets. You’re the best! *HUGS*
Congratulations on becoming a citizen!! You can celebrate big this July 4th!! Love the printables! Super cute 😉
I’m so happy for you Raine 🙂 Congratulations!
I don’t think we have anything like that in the UK. 🙁
As always Raine your illustrations are amazing!! I have downloaded quite a few of your freebies and am just waiting for the right time to use them!
I’ve been pondering over the ‘self care’ one for weeks – I just haven’t got a clue what to put!!
hi Sam, think of small and silly things. Don’t take it too seriously. Maybe dance at home like no one is watching? 🙂 or paint your nails bright green? 😀 You can add and re-do your list anytime you want. Experiment with different things and keep repeating the ones that light you up! 😉
Hip! Hip! Hooray, what fun finds you’ve shared today! Beautiful printables! CONGRATS TOO!
Congrats on your citzenship, the freebies look fun. We celebrate Waitangi day on 4th Feb, but it is not an easy date as like Australia there is a lot of political stuff as far as the Maori’s (indigenous people) go. So Anzac day is more sacred to NZers. That’s April 25.
Have a happy 4th of July. lovely and creative works. Thank you for sharing.
Congrats to you!!
Super adorable banners and buttons ♥
Congratulations, Raine. Your art is beautiful and certainly looks just right for your 1st celebration of being a US citizen.
congrats on your first 4th of July… we have our big day on 26th January though Australia Day is no where near as big a deal as 4th of July is… we were always stunned by how huge it was when we lived in Florida and it was fun to be a part of…xx
Cute stickers and decorations. Hope your 4th was marvelous. xox
Wonderful decorations and congratulations on becoming a U.S citizen!
Congrats on getting your American Citizenship – I didn’t realise you weren’t American. Do you mind if I ask where you were from originally? I’m both Irish and British (being born in Northern Ireland we get dual nationality). I don’t really celebrate it, in fact I think Americans celebrate it more than I do, but I suppose St.Patrick’s day would be the main one. Now that I’m living in Scotland though, if they win the referendum on independence next year, then I guess in years to come we’ll be celebrating Scottish Independence in much the same way as you do in the USA!
Hi Nicola, I am from Brazil. 🙂
Yay!!! Thank you for the adorable flags!
Congrats to you!!!! What a delightful array of celebration items you have created! I do celebrate July 4th but I also celebrate Bastille Day July 14th in honor of my dual citizenship and family living in France. Happy PPF!
Congrats to you! Lovely to celebrate your 1st fourth as a citizen. Your circle tags are so fun and you are so sweet to offer them as printables. Hope it was a fabulous day!
Geeez peeps, thank you so much for your lovely notes. Sorry this time I couldn’t reply to each one individually but I read them all as they came and am very thankful for all the love! 🙂
Smooches to you all! ♥
I love the 4th party decorations. Good job. Hope it was fun. Blessings, Janet PPF
Congratulations! I had one question. When I purchased your planner a couple of weeks ago you had stated that there would be more freebies exclusively for subscribers on the first of each month. Are these the ones you are talking about? They are very cool. You have an amazing talent
Congratulations! American needs more positive people like you!!!!
Wow! Congratulations Raine ~ the world needs more people with your sunny disposition… 🙂 Cool 4th of July and party goodies, thank you! Enjoy your holiday ~
Congrats on your first year we down under celebrate the 26th January as our day but any day we celebrate being a citizen of this great planet …sadly some people love to mess it up but usually its a great planet
