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!

Ho Ho Ho! I got my Christmas cards ready for the mail today. I had a goal of getting them out Dec. 1st so only a few (6) days off. I’m in total Christmas freak out mode. I hung wreaths on the windows of our house yesterday. I’ve always wanted to do that. Homeownership perk, right? Ha!
Anyway, your fun gift for stopping by today is printable GIFT TAGS! Print as many as you need, write on the back, the front, however you want to do it! I recommend white 8.5 x 11 cardstock. When printing, make sure your printer doesn’t resize the file (ie., fit page). It should fit most printers perfectly but do let me know if there is a problem.

Just like Santa, I’ve got cookies to eat and gifts to give. I also find it satisfying to make lists and check them off (when I remember to do so). Anyway, here’s another printable gift for you! Download yourself a little checklist and get to ch-ch-checking!
Also, have you done any of the things on the Christmas (Fun) list? I’ve done quite a few. The other night we had our red, white, and green dinner which consisted of smoked chicken with creamy kale, brussels, and cranberry salad. I half the amount of mayo and double the amount of lemon juice in the dressing recipe. We’ve made it three times already. Soooo goooodddd and festive!
