About Me

Hi there! I'm a mom of 3 boys and happily married to my husband for the past 13 yrs! I work full time and try and take care of everything home related as well- basically I'm tired and loving life! I love to try new things- especially cooking! I love the outdoors, music, old movies, church, and my family!

No Stress last min. success

Being a mom there are a lot of stress and pressures put on us during the holidays. Parties, treats, gifts, food, shopping, pictures, relatives, shipping, wrapping... well you get the picture (you're living it) Some years you're Wonder Women of the holidays... all the gifts were bought and wrapped by Dec. 1st, the teachers gifts are all planned and ready, you've got the menus all figured out and then there's years where you are scrambling to solve all the last min. issues that just keep popping up like that stupid gopher game with the mallet. Today I have some VERY simple, Very easy, and budget friendly last min. gift ideas that I got ready last night in maybe 30 mins (with the print help of the local UPS store-dang printer doesn't have any ink) I did use my laminate machine but you don't have to, card stock would work great too.

The first one comes to you from http://lastingthumbprints.com/christmas-coupons-kids-free-printable/
These FREE printable coupons for the kids stockings are great! She even provides a blank sheet if you would like to add some of your own ideas or perhaps make a set for "Santa" with a little more personal touch ;)

The second one is brought to you by http://www.myloveforwords.com/christmas-guessing-game-printables/#_a5y_p=3067296
Also FREE printable Christmas "Headbands" type game. This is a great gift not only for the kids but also friends, neighbors, teachers, or the family gift exchange. Add box of popcorn, some homemade goodies and BAM! you have a great gift for less than $10.00

I almost forgot- you might need an envelop to put these in. Here's the link that I used for mine:

I hope you all enjoy your time together during this Holiday season. I look forward to my time off of work to spend with my family and enjoy the light and happiness Christmas brings.
Merry Christmas to all my readers and I hope the New years bring you happiness, love, and peace.

*I'm not given any monetary mean in exchange for mentioning UPS or the other links I've shared.
