I love calendars. I love spending time sitting down, looking over, and writing events on calendars. In fact, sometimes I spend too much time writing out things on calendars. I can’t help it, I just love it!
We had our MOPS steering retreat last weekend, and as part of my planning for the retreat, I made everyone on the steering team a binder. And what’s an organizational binder without a calendar? So, of course, I made one. My calendar uses the graphics provided by MOPS International to go with this year’s theme, A Fierce Flourishing. I’ve seen some other MOPS A Fierce Flourishing themed calendars that are beautiful (there are some talented ladies out there!), but most of them put the information on the calendars. I made mine blank so my team can write everything (and anything!) in themselves.
And now, so can you!
The calendar is August – May, which just so happens to be our MOPS year. But also works out great for the school year!
Download and print as many as you like! The bright graphics belong to MOPS International. You’re welcome to use the calendar however you’d like. I just ask that you do not take the file and/or designs and claim them as your own. If you’d like to link to the calendar, please link to this page. Thank you and enjoy!
I’ve been busy making stuff for my MOPS group! We had our summer steering retreat this past weekend, and it was a huge success! With that over, I’m ready to share some more MOPS things I’ve created! I’ve already shared my poster design, my postcard design, and my invite card design. Today, onto the tri-fold brochure (can also be used like a rack card)! As always, I’m also including templates for you to easily add in your own group’s info.
A few days ago, I posted about the A Fierce Flourishing poster I created to promote my local MOPS group, Sarver MOPS. Today, I’m sharing my postcard design, and I’m also including a template for you to easily add in your own group’s info.
Have you seen my Isaiah 55:12 scripture doodle? This was my first experience digitizing my own original hand drawn art work. So fun! Since then, I’ve used several of my heart flourish hand drawn clip art in some of my MOPS promotional materials for the A Fierce Flourishing theme (see the poster here), and I thought I’d share so you can use to create your own digital works.
As always, feel free to use these elements in your designs. I just ask that you don’t take them and repost somewhere as your own design. Also, please do NOT use these designs on a piece of work you intend to sell for a profit (if you’d like to do that, please contact me about purchasing a commercial license). And please give credit where appropriate. Thanks for your cooperation and support!
And now, the images!

The 2015-2016 MOPS theme has been announced and we’re already brainstorming ideas to reach more moms in our community. With that comes the ever handy business card invite. Have you made one for your group to go with the new theme, yet?
I spent some time making one for our group and thought I’d share the template for easy editing in a program such as PicMonkey. I use Photoshop Elements for my designs. It’s more for photo editing, but I’ve really enjoyed using it for my digital designs, and it’s affordable!
It’s that time of year again. The leaves are falling, pumpkin flavoring is in everything, winter squash is part of every meal, and we’re buying Christmas gifts – wait, what? Yes! It’s time to collect and make boxes for Operation Christmas Child!
Never heard of Operation Christmas Child (OCC)? Go here to watch some inspiring and informative videos about OCC.
As you’ll remember from this post, I am in a MOPS (Mother’s of Preschoolers) group. MOPS International partners with OCC as a service project and OCC is a wonderful way to teach children about giving, thankfulness, and helping others. While I was looking into how to present OCC to my MOPS group, I wasn’t happy with my internet searches. So I compiled a list of the resources to involve small children in OCC. Included are resources (mostly official OCC resources), packing list suggestions and DIY projects, and scripture ideas to use in teaching. Continue reading →
