Free Download: O Holy Night Gift Tags

In 2008 I began a tradition of participating in the Utah Symphony's annual Messiah Sing-In every holiday season. It always comes at the perfect time: at the end of November or beginning of December, after Thanksgiving, before the chaos of final exams, and helps set the tone for the holiday season. This year I dragged along my dear boyfriend who, although never singing the songs before in his life, managed to follow along and not just liked it, but loved it. Singing and enjoying music is a spiritual experience for me, and The Messiah is one of the best.


Another one of my favorite Christmas songs is "O Holy Night." Have you ever really considered the lyrics? Gorgeous, and so meaningful. That is Christmas.


In honor of the season and in the spirit of giving, (and, you know, in the spirit of procrastination), I have designed four gift tags using the lyrics from "O Holy Night" and am offering them as a free download. Enjoy!

the gift that keeps on giving: earring of the month club

For the past year, I've been a member of the Earring of the Month club and it has been the best. Every month I receive a new pair of beautiful Darlybird earrings (made with vintage stones and the like, as always), as well as a lovingly written letter from Darlybird creator Rachel. I have even saved some of the notes and tucked them into my purse to read every now and then. They are beautiful, as are the earrings. All around, this is a fantastic gift!

Click here for the 6-month subscription, and here for the 12-month subscription.

Check back tomorrow morning for another holiday surprise!

Products We Love: Caravan Shoppe Holiday Printables



"Woodland" and "Grateful Praise" Thank You Cards by Caravan Shoppe
I have known Melanie Burk of Caravan Shoppe for as long as I can remember, but we became good friends about 5 years ago as she mentored me before I left to serve as a missionary for a time. I have since become friends with one of her business partners, Alma Loveland, and I can testify that both women are extremely loving, giving, and talented. Furthermore, they don't keep their talents to themselves, but willingly share them with others. They are two of the loveliest women I know.

This Thanksgiving season they are offering the above thank you card printables as free downloads (!!!) on their website! The cards perfectly complement their other Thanksgiving holiday products, all of which are extremely affordable, easily printable, and easily shareable. I especially love the Woodland Thanksgiving Set and Grateful Praise Thanksgiving Set.

It's been a great beginning to the holiday season! How are you celebrating Thanksgiving this year?

"We are grateful for..." Free Printable Poster











We are almost, almost ready for the Darlybird relaunch (so close!). As in, there will be crazy deals in the next couple weeks and a whole new store platform coming soon! We are ecstatic and have been working hard. We're so excited for you to see it.

Two of arguably the most festive months are coming up, and we are ready to put our whole hearts into them! To start off the season of Thanksgiving right, we have a free download for you. Print it out (in color or B&W, 11"x17" or 8.5"x11") and hang it on your refrigerator or wall with a pencil, pen, marker, or crayon nearby. Whenever someone walks by, they are invited to write down something they are grateful for. By the end of the month it will be packed with gratitude!


(My lovely roommate Kenzie, seen above, also mentioned making it into a whiteboard for her bedroom to keep all year long. This can easily be done by putting the printout in a picture frame and using a dry erase marker to write on it).

11" x 17"





8.5" x 11"

 
 



I printed the 11" x 17" black and white one on cardstock for our apartment and it only cost about 45 cents at Fedex Office. We used washi tape to secure it on our front door so everyone who visits our apartment will be able to contribute throughout the month.

Happy November!
