Beautiful Mondays: Gold Foil Home Decor

I had promised to show you the pictures of my printable “Love has a Name”. I will be sharing them with you today. For those of you who missed my post with the free printable, you can read it here.

With the free printable, I wanted to try out the gold foil that I had ordered a while ago. I printed the quote on patterned scrapbook paper. Then, using a laminator, I added the gold foil to it. I really like the effect it gives. It’s a fun way to add some inspiring quotes to your home decor!

Enjoy the results with me!

Free Printable : September Calendar

I decided to try something new last week. I made a calendar for the month September! I have been trying to set up a small business and I have had some orders and events to style already. I thought having a monthly calendar to hang above my desk would be handy for my assignments.

I really like how it turned out and I am going to do this every month now. I think my favorite part is the notes section. I’m someone who loves to just jot down the random things I have to do or make a checklist. Having a space on my calendar where I could do that was a must for me.

Each month you can download this calendar for free! I hope you enjoy it and find it useful. Let me know in the comments below!


You can download and print the calender here.

Have a great Sunday!

Beautiful Mondays: Forever

Lately, I am starting to grasp more and more what Jesus did for us when He died upon the cross. I grew up with all the Bible stories, so believing them was natural for me. I started realizing, though, that I never fully understood the depth of His love for us. I never quite knew the pain and fear that went along with His death.

A few weeks ago I was talking with someone about the hurts we can be faced with. And I said that no one would willingly take those pains on themselves so someone else can live in freedom. As soon as those words left my mouth, I finally felt like I understood what happened on that cross. Because there has been Someone who willingly took all my pain, all my fears, all my insecurities, all my struggles and challenges upon Himself so that I can live in freedom. When we come to that point of realization, when we can grasp how deep His love is, how far He went for us, then we start stepping more  into the freedom that is ours to have.

There is a song that is being listened to in our house a lot these last days. What we love most is the talking that happens in between. I want to share it with you and I hope that you can start grasping what happened on that cross and with me, slowly start stepping into freedom.

So on this Monday, remember these words that I made into a printable for you (later this week I will show pictures of it displayed in my house, but I will be trying out gold foil first). I have two different versions for you!

Beautiful Mondays: Free Printable

This has been one of those weeks where I have been challenged by motherhood. Our almost two year old son has discovered that he can climb out of his bed. This has resulted in little sleep for him and trying days for me and my husband. When I am sleep deprived, I tend to get emotionally unstable. It then is harder for me to fight my insecurities and my negative thoughts.   I tend to let my insecurities and fears take control.

Constantly, however, I am reminded that my thoughts need to change. Once my thoughts start to change, my actions and attitude will change. Each time the words whatever is true, whatever is right come to mind. I decided I needed to create something with this so I can display it somewhere in my house as a constant reminder.

Free Printable Whatever is

I am excited to share my first printable with you! I have made two versions. The first one has a pink watercolor background. And the second one is black and white. I realized the latter would probably match most home decors better.

Whatever is
