This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of UPS for IZEA. All opinions are 100% mine.

Sometimes a wish isn’t a thing, it’s an experience. We have always put more value on having an experience rather than a lot of gifts in our family. An experience is something you will probably remember for the rest of your life where as you might not remember a gift you received after a few months. My goal is to create a lifetime of memories for my family.

It’s that time of year again! Time to think about setting goals for the new year. And while this isn’t the only good time to set goals a new year always feels like a clean slate, so why not take advantage of that and set some Financial Goals for the New Year. I am by no means an expert in financial planning and have made many mistakes along the way but I have been married for 34 years and have 8 children so I do have a few things I think I am qualified to share. Also if you make it to the end of this post you will see much to my dismay that I have even more to share.

Elves Food Groups Printable

in Christmas,Printable

Are you ready for another awesome printable? Printables are a fun and inexpensive way to add seasonal or holiday decor to any room. We love watching Christmas movies and seem to watch them earlier and earlier in the season every year. This season started out with ELF, but I’m sure we’ll watch it at least 4 more times. There are so many great quotes from this movie and since we make special treats this time of year I decided to make a Elves Food Groups printable.

One of our favorite family Christmas traditions is making new ornaments every year. This year we weren’t able to spend more than a few dollars on supplies so I was glad we were able to pick up everything we needed at Dollar General. I’m going to share with you some easy Handmade Kids Ornaments that only need minimal supervision.

I shared these cute Clothespin Snowflake Ornaments at U-Create a few weeks ago and thought it was time to share them here if you missed them. Since I change the theme and colors for our Christmas tree almost every year I love making quick, easy, and inexpensive ornaments to go on it. My colors are red, light blue, mint green, and white this year. These are so easy to make but I love the impact they have on the tree, a garland or even a wreath.
