Kick off to Christmas Freebie

As far as I'm concerned, its official - the Christmas season has begun. Like everyone else, I have a load of projects I'd like to get accomplished in the next few weeks. Last night I got out my to-do list and turned up the Christmas music. To kick off the season on the blog, I'm sharing another mini poster (the first here and the second here) to get things started right.

Have no fear, I'm not about to get all preachy on you. Im not trying to take down the commercialism of Christmas - I love giving gifts, sending cards and making fancy in everyway possible. I don't think those things are trite - doing those little things and putting in the extra effort to make those close to you feel special is worth it! But Ive noticed that a packed to do lists can sap some of the holiday cheer from even the best of us. I hope this little poster can serve as a reminder to hold dear to things that are worth it for each of us.
I'm sure keeping Christmas means something different to everyone. What does it mean for you?
PS: If you like free stuff, stayed tuned the next few weeks. I have a couple of other freebies coming up that you might be able to use in your holiday preparations.

  2. I loooove the holiday season- it puts me in a good mood already thinking of decorating our home, deciding what gifts to give and what to cook. I try not to stress, but have FUN and just enjoy it. And of course, Christmas will be that much sweeter this year with our little baby here:)

  3. I am so ready for Christmas! It's different because our Thanksgiving (Canada) is long over so the focus is Christmas after Halloween! Not everyone would agree but that's me! I can't wait to print this out! Yay! Thanks so much!!

  8. This year, my biggest project is to create a gluten and dairy free gingerbread house with my sons.

    As a kid, I begged for the kit and my mother always refused.

    Also, I plan to bust out the sewing machine and create some amazing personalized bean bags for the wee ones in my life...

  11. I love Christmas! WIth three small children at home it's even more special! Of course the 25th is the culmination of the entire month, but we spend all of December celebrating the awesomeness of baby Jesus' birth - that God became a man and gave himself up for us - that we don't have to earn our salvation. What a tremendous load lifted! What a precious gift. What a wonderful reason to party all December long!!!

    You are so talented! I can't wait to see what you're up to!

    Any chance we could have a "Christmas Tour" of the limestone?

  12. Love the design and the message!

    Keeping Christmas to me means putting God first and family close behind.

    Can't wait to see what the next weeks entail on Brooklyn Limestone!

  13. Adorable! I am so ready to start decorating for Christmas! Do I dare admit that I'm sorta wanting to change out one of the colors of my tree decorations? I have used silver/blue/white for the last three years and sorta getting tired of it? What do you think? How often do you change out your ornaments? hugs from conroe, tx

    Thank you for this freebie. Even though I found it eons later, it would be a perfect icon for the project I've started called Twenty-Fifthmas. I am determined to keep the feeling of Christmas alive all year and will do something for and in the spirit of Christmas on or around the 25th of each month. Even though this is a freebie, I hope it's ok to use as the icon on the FB page. Credit back of course. <3
