Working on Self-Discipline…and Printables

A new month is here! Can you all believe it is already NOVEMBER?? The blast of cold air that came through here this past weekend, along with some snow flurries from Hurricane Sandy, were reminders that the cold weather is settling in. Brrr….

This past weekend I attended Allume thanks to the folks at Christmas Celebrations, a company dedicated to helping families celebrate the true meaning of Christmas. If you’d like to share their free Advent calendar printables and Christmas online workshop with your friends, join their affiliate program today! The girls and I will also be working on their Star of Bethlehem study together before Christmas ~ excited to use this!


There were so many other wonderful ladies at Allume that I was able to catch up with {and meet}. Allume may have also involved a lot of laughing and cheesiness {see above pictures with Jodi a.k.a. Granola Mom 4 God and Carisa a.k.a. 1+1+1=1} – we can’t even operate the Smilebooth correctly}. Overall a fabulous weekend with friends and some much needed laughter and encouragement for me that put some things into clear focus {and I just love it when God does that!}.

Plans for This Month

Life is slowing down a bit here – my time teaching at our local co-op is finished for now, which will free up a lot of my planning and work time during the week {woot!}. That will give me time to tackle a few other projects that have been waiting patiently on the sideburner.

And speaking of things sitting on the side, this month I’ll be joining in the 21 Day Full-Size-Discipline-Challenge-300x300Self-Discipline Challenge {based on the book 21 Days to a More Disciplined Life by Crystal Paine} and undertaking our history timeline project. It’s been one of those projects that has been silently mocking me {you know the ones I’m talking about}, but I’m determined to take care of that thing once and for all! I’ll be updating every now and then on my progress – my daily list to do over the next 21 days is ready to go! And psst…. you can still join in with the challenge!

Now that my website is up and running consistently {woot!}, I’m able to share printables that I’ve been working on – so stay tuned, because next week they will start posting!
