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!

2011 Primary Theme Bookmarks

But wait – it’s not Monday, you’re saying! Right! But like my dad always says, “A man’s gotta do, what a man’s gotta do.”… only in this case, it’s a mother’s gotta do … My life is filled with 4 little ones under age 8 and so we just roll with the punches… and with 3 little boys, there are lots of punches. Just kidding! Anyhoo… here we are on Wednesday with a freebie.

I put together these 2×6 inch bookmarks for the children in our LDS Primary group and thought I’d share the files with y’all. Here’s the sample image.
2011 Primary Theme Bookmark: 2×6

The actual image size is 2.127 x 6.127 which are the full-bleed measurements to print at a printshop. I had 200 gloss coated double-sided thick-cardstock bookmarks printed at for $28. They have smaller quantities available. If you order from them, just be sure to find a coupon code. I used bc100 which gave me $10 off my order.

I’ve also had a lot of people asking about printing the monthly themes at 8×10 or 8.5×11 size. If you try and print the 5×7 image larger, it might be fuzzy. I’ll try and get a larger size posted soon so you can print them for your primary class.

Thanks to Crystal Wilkerson for her darling Argyle paper.
