Ho Ho HO! We are less than a week away from THE BIG DAY. Every year I can’t believe it and I’m not ready! We’re just that much closer to it being over and that makes me sad. Speaking of over… here are the last days of #Mollidays2016. If you missed it, here are days 1-4 and 5-8.
Day Nine :: The easiest and best gift there is, is wine. And if you’re taking my advice, here are some wine gift tags.
Day Ten :: Be sure to document the season… I made this handy photo checklist. Get your family involved and you’ll always remember Christmas 2016… even if you don’t want to.
Day Eleven :: Need some more Christmas decorations? How about this print of hand drawn snowflakes?
Day Twelve :: For the final day, I made a coloring sheet from all of this year’s illustrations. Enjoy!
Here’s what you’ve missed in the #Mollidays2016… Days 1-4 here.
Now check out days 5 to 8…
Day Five :: Need some baking ideas for the holidays.. check out these cookies and printable recipe.
Day Six :: Be like Santa and make a list and check it twice.
Day Seven :: Forgot to buy Christmas cards? I got you covered.
Day Eight :: Many time people act like scrooges this time of year… leave them a note to lift their spirits.
This is the last week of my daily emails… sign up in the side bar! I’ll send you other fun stuff throughout the year too 🙂
If you’ve been putting off signing up for #Mollidays2016 like you’ve been putting off Christmas shopping… Christmas is still coming! What are you waiting for? Here’s what you’ve missed:
Day Two :: I love making wallpapers (for your phones) so I made two again this year!
Day Three :: No present is complete without a
receipt recipient… Gift Tags!
Day Four :: I had an idea and I went with it… a textable gif(t)! Santa is really popular this year.

I set a goal for 12 days of hand drawn downloads for Christmas this year. And here I am! Whew. Thank you for following along sweet friends and family. The final download is a thank you card (4 x 6 folded). I hope you have enjoyed at least one thing from these days. It was fun and challenging for me. I’ll have to do it again! Anyway, I’m going to get on with my 4th night of baking and prepare for the party we’re having at our house tomorrow night. Have a great weekend (because they mentally begin on Thursday nights for me) and Merry Christmas!
On the eleventh day of Mollidays dear Mollie made for you, a printable coloring sheet! This coloring sheet is kid and adult friendly. Remember the old saying, “Families that color together don’t kill each other during the holidays!”
HomemadeGiftTags The Mollidays originated from the baking frenzy I have the week before Christmas. I always bake for people at my school and it’s grown into a tradition the past six years. Every year I like to try different recipes. This is what I’m making this season:
- Salted Chocolate Espresso Brookies (I made these last year but for the first time in five years the recipient told me they liked something I made so I’m sticking with it.)
- Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Bars
- 5 Ingredient Salted Caramel Peanut Butter Truffles
- Cake Batter Chocolate Bark
- Cinnamon Roll Cake (from scratch)
- Chocolate Caramel Pretzel Cookies
Each group of people I bake for get something a little different. If you believe it, I actually scaled it down a little this year (so I could do all the Mollidays stuff!).
If you’re going to be doing some baking or DIY gifts this year, feel free to download and print the tags I made especially for presents of the homemade persuasion.

It should be no surprise that I like to plan things. I usually deviate from the plan but the planning itself is cathartic. Another thing you should know about me is that I am a habitual over packer (I used to be an under packer and then swung too hard in the other direction). So, this time of the year when there are parties to attend and places to go I like to know I’m going to look my best ahead of time. That is why ladies and gentlemen I created a handy outfit planner. It is something I’ve done lately but now I’ve made it easier for myself this holiday season and all for your benefit. Print away!
Need some Christmas cards quick? Or maybe you forgot a few people (hey, it happens!)? Send them a Christmas postcard made by yours truly. Print, cut, and mail. Easy as eating pecan pie.
What’s your favorite Christmas song? Lately I’ve been listening to this eclectic off beat list. Pay no attention to the stripper santa on the page (yes, really). And don’t forget my list of ultimate Christmas songs from last year’s Mollidays. They’re still gems. Happy listening!
Every year about this time I start planning the treats I’m going to make for school (for the lunchroom ladies, the office ladies, the administrators, the custodians, and the teachers on my hall). I’m pretty set on making these this year. To make sure I have enough sweets and no one is forgotten, I like to write it all down. Whatever you need to make and/or buy this year, I hope this makes it easier for you!
What’s your favorite Christmastime treat?
Need a little Christmas art? Got you covered. I made this little 8.5 x 11 printable illustration from one of my past Christmas cards (which I hand drew every single one with gold paint marker on black board, omg). I wouldn’t be mad if you added glitter to it, used it as wrapping paper, or made xerox copies to give to all your friends. Have fun!
