Free Valentine’s Day Coloring Pages

I have always loved coloring.  When I was a kid, opening a new box of crayons or markers was the best feeling on earth. It felt like a world of possibilities and fresh starts. I could create anything and make it however I wanted. I see that same love in my kids and all the kids around me. There is something so special and energizing about the creative process and creative freedom.

Free I Spy Valentines Printable Game

Valentines’s Day is such a fun holiday!

I remember being in elementary school and meticulously decorating my valentine box.  I wrote my valentines with great care and I loved crossing every name off my class list as I finished their valentine. I remember the excitement and anticipation of our class party and running home to show my mom all the treats I got. Now I see my girls getting just as excited for Valentines’ Day, and I love it.

Free Jane Austen Quote Printables

I have vivid memories of the first time I was introduced to the works of Jane Austen.

I was a freshmen in college, and I was really homesick. My sweet Aunt Leah and Uncle Mike invited me to spend a long weekend with them in a neighboring state. They picked me up, drove me the four hours to their lovely apartment, and spoiled me with microwave caramel popcorn and the BBC version of Pride and Prejudice.

That night I fell in love. I fell in love with the movie, with Mr. Darcy, and the whole storyline. It was so romantic and witty. It was everything that a romance should be. And let’s be serious, Colin Firth had that whole brooding hero thing down pat.

Easy & Delicious Cheese Ball

Cheese balls are very important to my husband. Whenever I want to make his day (or his month), I make him a cheese ball.

He grew up eating them, especially during the holidays. Whenever we get together with his family for Christmas or New Years Eve, there is always a cheese ball sitting on the counter. It’s a lovely tradition, don’t you think?

Free Christmas Bingo Printable Game

Bingo is definitely a family favorite around here.

I love it because it’s fun, easy, and doesn’t require a lot of mental work on my part. I am sad to say that games that require a lot of mental strategy or exertion are not really my cup of tea right now. (I’m looking at you, chess!) I save all my mental strength for dinner and my 3rd-grader’s homework. Sigh. Such is life, right?

Cookie Cutter Fudge Gift (+ Free Tags)

I first heard about the idea of gifting fudge in a cookie cutter several years ago from my Aunt Jeannie. She told my mom that she loved to put fudge in a cookie cutter, and then give it to her friends as gifts during the holidays.

This is brilliant for so many reasons. First of all, the fudge. Fudge is such a great gift. It’s totally delicious and decadent. You can make it large batches and it’s pretty easy to make. It’s awesome.

Free Christmas Advent (+ 52 Ways to #LIGHTtheWORLD)

This past Sunday my family and I were watching the new #LIGHTtheWORLD ad campaign sponsored by our church. This new campaign encourages everyone to light the world this holiday season with acts of service. More specifically, we are asked to follow our Savior’s example of service by doing an act of service every day from December 1st to December 25th.

I can’t even tell you how inspired I was when I watched this short video. Tears came to my eyes, and my husband and I both wanted our family to focus more on service this holiday season.

Free Holiday Invitations

This morning I was reading a blogger’s bio and I was shocked when she said she hated sleep. I was blown away because I love sleep! I would give up a lot before I would give up sleep. In fact, some of my friends joke about texting or calling me late at night because they know that I am either asleep or ornery because I am not asleep.
