2013 Primary Calendar
(top part only … works swell with companies like Shutterfly)
Speaking of Shutterfly… I got a free calendar code good through Black Friday… see if it will work for you…
use CALENDAR2013 in the coupon code section of their site.

Here’s what I did with mine – just to give you an idea. Nothin’ Fancy ‘Round here.

Lastly for tonight… 5×7 images of “I am a Child of God” song to print for your littles…
your primary class… or your ward primary. You could modge-podge them onto canvas or a wood block.
Crop to a 4×6 & put in a frame, etc. Oodles of ideas.

oops – an error was found

Unfortunately there is an error on the June 2012 cards.
Fortunately, Deanna spotted it and alerted me to the error.  Thank you!!!

I’ve updated all the files in the 4×6 downloads, the calendar downloads, and the 16×20/8×10 image downloads. If you’d like the updated images you can also

So Sorry. Looks like I’ll have to see my error all year long as I’ve already printed mine. Sigh…

2012 Family Calendar

I thought I’d share something I’ve done the past few years for our family calendar. Every few years I receive a few promotional code for a Shutterfly Calendar. Love that! Free is always fun! This year a friend had a code to spare and so I got to work putting it together. I was in a bit of a rush (as it was my anniversary and all), so I sped along. This is what I came up with.

This was last year’s:

I have loved having the Primary Monthly themes on our calendar.
1. Since I look at the calendar so much, I remember to try and focus on what the kids are learning in Primary. It sure makes for a quickie FHE idea to go along with Sunday lessons.
2. I put the song for the year on the cover so it’s easily accessible when we are practicing or having a song for FHE or Morning Devotional.

I really love Shutterfly Calendars because the cardstock is very thick and durable. My kids love that I can put their photo on the date of their birthday.

Anyhoo… I thought just in case anyone else was interested in making a 2012 Primary Calendar (with their own family images), I’d share the .jpg images already set in the template for a Shutterfly Calendar (p.s. they have their calendars on ***sale*** right now). You can insert your images into the .jpg downloaded files in Picasa or use a different photo-editing software. I had fun going through all the January photos from various years and selecting my favorites… and so on for each month.

This is what you get in the download:

Zipped Folder of 8.5×11 2012 Primary Posters Calendar Pages
(with a place to insert your own family photos)

(the file is large so be patient when downloading…
you will need to unzip the folder before you can access the images)

Hop on over to Shutterfly and order your calendar before the sale ends!

‘We Can Do Hard Things’ Freebie

The Good News: Today I’m sharing a Subway Art freebie.

The Bad News: It’s a peace-offering since I’m not going to reopen the SFD Digital Store this year.

You see… My life is full… full of good things, but I’m having to adjust and prioritize. My fun side-business has to be put on the back burner for a long while. I was asked to be the President of the Relief Society in our local church congregation a few weeks ago, which makes my life a wee bit more full.

This quote, “We Can Do Hard Things” is my new mantra. I love it! It reminds me that I can make it through hard things with my spouse, my family, my friends, and most importantly… my Heavenly Father. I know I am strengthened by Him daily. Everyone has hard things… everyone. We need each other. I even remind my 3-year-old that HE CAN DO HARD THINGS… like pulling up his pants or cleaning up his room or eating 3 bites of that nasty dinner. This quote applies to all.

16×20 & 8×10 We Can Do Hard Things

4×6 We Can Do Hard Things

5×7 We Can Do Hard Things

p.s. I do have to apologize that all the images I shared are pretty random. There is no consistent color scheme in all the sizes and on some images there is a scripture from Alma 26:12… and others, a scripture from Mark 10:27. What can I say… I’m a spaz sometimes? Hopefully you’ll find one to enjoy… and another to share with a friend.

p.p.s. 16×20 prints well in an 8×10 size… so don’t let that frighten you – the dimensions are the same. Also… for your convenience the 3×4 cards are designed to print two-up on a 4×6 print.

p.p.p.s. quiet books… the LDS Intellectual Properties department has NOT given us the go-ahead with sharing the quiet books. I’m sad… like really sad. I’m not able to email the books to anyone. Sad. Someday, if I ever have the time, I’d love to offer them with text only and share the links to images on so you can create your own. sigh…

Most of All… Remember that
WE Can Do Hard Things!

BELIEVE: James E. Faust on Santa Claus

Today’s Merry Monday freebie is a fabulous Christmas quote by James E. Faust about how the way of Santa Claus is the way of Jesus. I’ve been thinking about this topic because my 8-year-old has realized the truth about Santa. We had “the talk” and I shared this idea with her … that what is real is the Spirit of Christmas … of Christ, that is embodied in the figure of Santa. All that is good, cheerful, kind, and selfless is definitely something I BELIEVE in.

To download the 5×7 print, click on the image above to enlarge. Save it to your computer and print away. This would make a great little print to slip in a neighbor gift. Enjoy!
