CUTE & Quick Christmas Gift Ideas with Free Printable Tags

I LOVE coming up with easy and cute ideas for gifts that are 
great to have around to give during the Christmas season. 
This time of year everyone is super crazy busy and hurried so it's nice to have 
a few things wrapped up and ready to give when you realize you need them-
for teachers, co-workers, friends, neighbors, etc.

Here are four easy, inexpensive, but cute gifts I put together this weekend- 
and all are between $1-6 each!

Idea #1: 



Soap from Bath and Body Works ($5 or less) with a tag that says


Idea #2: 
$5 Fleece blanket from Walmart (or anywhere you find them on sale)
with a tag that says: 


Idea #3: 

Aloe socks ($3 found at Walmart) 
filled with a tiny bottle of lotion ($1 each from Amazon here
and some candy ($1 from Kroger)
with a note that says: 

Idea #4: 

Cute notepad (from the Dollar Spot at Target) with a tag that says: 


You can print each of these tags as a JPG from the folder HERE
I usually select the wallet size and print them on 
regular copy paper although with the blanket tag I made them 5 x 7
and the notepads I did 3.5 x 5.

December Random Acts of Kindness Calendar

A few weeks ago I spoke to a super sweet group of
 young mamas at my church about RAOK (random acts of kindness). 
It was a sweet time sharing how committing to doing RAOK had 
been a blessing in my life & what the Bible has to say about blessing others.  

The one who blesses others is abundantly blessed;
those who help others are helped. 
Proverbs 11:25

I wanted to leave them with a little something to encourage them to do RAOK's 
with their children so I created something for both November and December. 
I shared the November idea HERE 
and thought I'd share the December idea today!

It's a simple calendar with an easy idea for blessing others listed for each day. 
In this crazy hectic season it's nice
 to have a simple idea at hand of how to bless someone else!

Just print it out HERE, add it to your bulletin board or fridge 
and get your kids involved in blessing others this December! 


December Scripture Writing Plan 2016

Happy almost December!

Once again- thank you from the bottom of my heart
 to those that have emailed me this month to
tell me how much you like these little scripture writing plans!

I try to respond to each email but please know if I don't that I
seriously LOVE hearing stories of how families,
and Sunday School groups, and churches, and friends,
and even prison groups
are working through the plans together.
GOD is so cool how He uses our simple works for HIS good and glory!

Here's the plan for December which is just an updated version
 of last year's since it focuses on Christmas.


Writing scripture down each day is such a great way to really focus on God's word!
During this super crazy hectic time of year- this is one way to spend
a few minutes each day focusing on what is truly important! 
You can find a copy to print out for yourself of the above plan in the folder HERE.


You can also find the Spanish and plain versions in the folder HERE




For those that have asked, there is also a blank form 
to write your verses on that can be found HERE

FAQ's about the plans can be found HERE.

November RAOK Paper Chain

I spoke to a super sweet group of young mamas at my church yesterday
 about RAOK (random acts of kindness). 
It was a sweet time sharing how committing to doing RAOK had 
been a blessing in my life & what the Bible has to say about blessing others.  

The one who blesses others is abundantly blessed;
those who help others are helped. 
Proverbs 11:25

I wanted to leave them with a little something to encourage them to do RAOK's 
with their children so I created a fun little fall paper chain full of ideas. 

Most are no cost but a few ideas have a cost associated with them. 
They can cut the strips apart and make a chain 
and each day have one of their children pull off a link for the family to complete. 





Wouldn't this be fun to add to your thankful tree in November?
