My favorite Time of Year! (+ a free Calendar!)


I love it when the weather begins to get cooler – and for all of you people here in Greenville who think today was hot, if we ignore the amazingly cool weather we had last week, it can feel a little cooler than 3 weeks ago! 🙂 It makes me think of fall colors (the colors I painted my house!), baking (there’s chocolate chip cookies waiting for my husband tonight when he gets home from taking his first test this semester), and buying Christmas gifts. However, this year, I’ve decided to try to MAKE a lot of Christmas gifts in an attempt to keep up with our goal of paying of all our debts by 01/01/2009 and just to give my family something with a lot more thought into it than a gift I found on sale somewhere that I hope they like!

Thus, the one of the reasons I started my blog in the first place! I couldn’t wait for this time of the year to post Christmas ideas, scrapbooking ideas, and card-making ideas. I hope you can all benefit a little from it all!

First off, here’s a few freebies I found:

  • Christmas Countdown Calendar!

It begins the last week of October and is set to get you completely ready for Christmas (including some baking and all your decorating!) by the first week of December – and you’ll not have to stress about it! Go here to get your free printable calendar – and happy planning for Christmas!

  • Free (and super easy!) Homemade Christmas Card Ideas!

Yes, if you start now, it won’t be all that overwhelming – and besides, once you make one, you can whip up a ton of ’em super easily! Here’s some great ideas along with some printable ones as well!

  • Easy with kids Homemade Christmas Gifts!

There’s even a few teacher gift ideas. Have fun browsing!


About Kim

I am a sinner, miraculously saved by grace, living by faith, and pressing toward the mark of being more like Christ. I absolutely love being a stay-at-home mom! I'm also a caterer for a few weddings throughout the year, a baker, and a party planner. And I love to play in other people's kitchens as well as my own! My husband, Chris, just finished his studies for his MA degree in Pastoral Studies. He's a wonderful (and super smart!) daddy - and the most loving and supportive husband. My two beautiful daughters, Chloe and Kami, are the joys of our lives! We pray that they both would be greatly used of the Lord. Throughout their short time here on earth, we have learned so much about ourselves, our God, and the gratefulness we have towards our own parents, who raised us in the ways of God's Word. Our third unborn child is a blessing as well - even after its recent pre-diagnosis of Trisomy 18, or Edwards Syndrome. This blog has kinda turned into a little journal of sorts of our dark journey down this rather uncommon road. I stay busy cooking, cleaning, gardening, and raising the plants I killed back to life, and homeschooling. I blog when get the chance. :) We are always happy to have visitors, so please stop by anytime! Although, if you do give us a call first, we'll make sure to have some fresh cookies and sweet tea available when you arrive!
