Pre-Holiday Links and Resources -Advent 2018 and Christmas

With Thanksgiving this week, Advent is following quickly behind it!

But besides the busy preparation for Christmas, there are a lot of things we can do to really observe the season of Advent! Over the years I have collected links and resources for the holidays that I thought would help me and my family prepare our hearts and spirits to celebrate the birth of Baby Jesus.  I haven't done everything on this list.  Some of it is a wish list, but there was something in every link that I thought was worthwhile.

Perhaps first on the list is actually getting our homes ready for the holidays:
Holiday Grand Plan or join their Yahoo Group E-mail List Declutter and Clean!
Also DeClutter and Organize on Facebook. 

and get your planner ready~  Advent and Christmas Planner from Catholic Icing or Advent Planner from Wildflower and Marbles.

A Graduation Poster gift for you!

 Last year, Izzy made this lovely sign for her own graduation party. It now hangs in her room with some other mementos of that special time in her life!

I asked her to pen another one for the Class of 2018. While I can't send everyone a lovely canvas, we did create a lovely printable that you can download as a PDF and printout with three different designs.  Here's a sample. 

These can be decorations at a party, or a program cover, or use in invitations. They can be versatile - just use your imagination!  

My e-mail subscribers are going to be receiving the link tomorrow (after the royal wedding of course!) so if you'd like one, sign up below!
