2015 LDS Primary Theme Posters

Free Download 2015 LDS Primary Theme Posters ~ Simply Fresh Designs.com

Perhaps you’re late to the 2015 game, as I am …
but you’d like to print some 2015 LDS Primary Theme Posters
for your Primary Room… or home… or fridge…
or family calendar (that’s what I’m doing!)

I finished these Monthly 16×20 Posters this evening.
Feel free to download and print for personal & church use only!

p.s. I’m not quite sure I’m lovin’ the color scheme I used,
inspired by 2015 Pantone Colors of the year.
If you just look at one poster at a time,
perhaps it won’t look like a crazy tie-dye spill.
I tend to go BRIGHT in the depths of winter dreariness.

Happy New Year!

Update on Simply Fresh Designs: December 2014

My etsy shop has been closed since January (I was slammed with some major morning sickness).
We spent the summer keeping 5 kiddos busy and I spent a lot of time at doctor’s appointments for non-stress tests, etc.
Scotland Charles Smith was born August 28 and things went relatively smoothly (all things considered).
We are so grateful to have this 6th little one in our family.
Newborns throw in an added busy-ness to a family and we are still adjusting.

I was hoping to get my etsy shop open for Christmas, but sigh….
I need to continue focusing on my family and all my time (plus, all the time I don’t have) is reserved for their needs.

BUT … the good news is that you can now download all FREE Simply Fresh Designs Items (including quiet books with images) via DropBox.. Hopefully things will be easier to access now.

Merry Christmas Friends!
Thanks for your patience with all we have going on around here!

p.s. I am hoping to sneak in some time for 2015 Primary & YW theme posters. Check back soon.
And if that doesn’t happen, check pinterest… there are oodles of darling ones shared by others.

announcement #6
The main reason I shut down my etsy shop: having a hard time keeping up with technical support when not feeling well with all-day morning sickness. We’re excited for our new addition. Perhaps this summer I’ll get the shop reopened if I’m up to managing everything. Thanks for your support!

BillionClicks.org Clicker Giveaway!

In February 2013, I heard an inspiring message by Hilary Weeks about the Power of Positive Thoughts.
She shared the idea of “Clicking”.
“Clicking” is a way of training our minds to focus on and think about the positive.
My cute family was in the middle of the Dark Season here in Utah.
I ordered a clicker for each of us.Picture-16
The very afternoon they arrived, we had a party thinking & saying positive thoughts. Click. Click. Click.

My 8-year-old son was in the greatest need of this activity, and he had the most clicks that afternoon.
For a few weeks, we clicked and clicked and became more positive.
Of course there were UP days and DOWN days.
But overall, I believe practicing this principle of optimism has blessed our family.

This summer when we went on a week-long driving trip to Washington, we brought along a clicker.
We definitely needed positive thoughts after being in the car together for 12 hours!

I believe in Positive thoughts!…
I only wish it were easier to me to LIVE every moment of every day.
I’m pulling out my clicker again this week.
November, the month of gratitude, is a great month to rejuvenate your thoughts.
Just be sure you revisit POSITIVE THOUGHTS in the depth of winter (say … come February!)

To help on our Positive Thoughts Quest I have a Freebie to share
