A Fierce Flourishing 10 month Calendar (free printable!)

Free Printable 10 Month Calendar | laceandyarn.com

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!

Advice for the Love Birds — A Bridal Shower Printable

A Free Bridal Shower Printable Game -- laceandyarn.comPeople tend to have strong feelings about bridal shower games, you either love ’em or hate ’em.  I am on the love ’em side, but when I was throwing a small surprise bridal shower recently, I knew I didn’t want to go over the top for several reasons.  First, this was a super small shower.  Like, seven people small.  We all fit around my dining room table with room to spare.  Second, we’ve all been friends since middle school.  It’s not like we needed an ice breaker or something to fill the lull in the conversation.  Also, the bride wasn’t exactly keen on the idea of a shower in the first place, so I didn’t want to overwhelm her with games!

This isn’t even much of a game per se.  More of everyone give advice in a fun format, with the chance to be silly (or not).  It’s also nice because it makes a nice memento for the bride.
