Have you seen these adorable printable Christmas cones? I found them on Pinterest and my kids LOVE them. They’ve each colored themselves an entire Christmas village. The cones are available pre-colored or black and white to color in yourself.

I really like that you can print them either way – pre-colored is perfect for easy Christmas ornaments, table decorations, place cards, etc. or as a fun Christmas craft for kids to color.

You can also print them as two different sizes – larger as JPEGs or smaller from a PDF.


She also sells a set of colour in Nativity cones which I love even more! The color version is so sweet and my kids have each added their own nativity scene to their Christmas village scene.

I found the Christmas cones here along with gobs of other great printable designs for scrapbooking, parties, and more so if you like these Nativity and Christmas Cones, check out all this other awesome stuff!

With every passing year, so many more important people come into my life and around Christmas time I want to show everyone I love and appreciate how much I love and appreciate them! It’s tough to think of a practical AND fun gift idea that won’t break the bank but this year I’ve figured it out!


A little “Movie Night In” gift package complete with some yummy Symphony milk chocolate, a few pouches of microwave popcorn, and a Redbox promo code is the perfect way to express my love and appreciation to neighbors, teachers, friends, and family. This is a gift that is easy to hand deliver or mail to distant friends and relatives and is fun for the whole family to enjoy together.

Now is the perfect time to gift some Redbox promo codes with all the great new movies recently released – there is definitely something for everyone with choices like Jurassic World, Inside Out, Tomorrowland, Max, and Pitch Perfect 2.


Redbox promo codes or virtual gift cards can be purchased online for as little as $1.50 for a DVD, they never expire, and they can be used for 1-day rentals on DVDs, Blu-ray Discs or video games. Codes can be redeemed for online reservations or at a physical Redbox location (did you know there are more Redbox kiosks in the United States than McDonald’s and Starbucks combined??).

I love a good frequent shopper’s reward program and I just found out about Redbox Play Pass – have you heard of it? Play Pass is a reward system based on points to earn exclusive deals and freebies like a free movie night just for signing up. One rental equals ten points and 100 points equals a free movie rental. Buy 10 get one free is a pretty great reward, especially if you’re avid Redboxers like we are…

Other perks include

  1. a free rental on your birthday
  2. a free rental on your Play Pass anniversary
  3. other surprise rewards and exclusive offers.


With Redbox promo codes and virtual gift cards you have both the money and the time to get a little something special for every important person in your life. Purchasing online makes it so easy – all that’s left to do is throw it with a pouch of popcorn and deliver an all-in-one movie night to say Thanks and Merry Christmas this year.

*HOME ORGANIZATION* Fix the LEGO Catastrophe!

Thumbnail image for *HOME ORGANIZATION* Fix the LEGO Catastrophe!

I’ve tried organizing our Legos in a dozen different ways INCLUDING the insane method of keeping all the sets separated. That didn’t work. The only thing that has worked for us is to sort Legos by color. It’s genius. I resisted for a long time because I didn’t want all the sets mixed up! But keeping the […]
