a "been-there" mom of six offers encouragement
to wives, young mothers, and those not so young,
and simple common-sense approaches to
the "ings" of life:
child-rearing (hints and helps), homemaking (all areas),
cooking (simple, cheap, and do-it-yourself)
making (toys and gifts), preparing (for the unexpected),
maintaining (sanity and peace in this increasingly crazy world) and more---
all aspects of making the most of making do on little---
and having fun in the process.

A Christmas Calendar That Keeps You on Track Visually

Counting the Days Really Does Make the Days Count

If the instructions on my post (earlier today) were confusing,
here is a sample I made up on the computer, using clip art,  
four years ago.

The only way I could make it large enough for you to see was to turn it sideways.
Sorry 'bout that!

Something important to consider and remember:

Very, very often it's the little things that create memories . . .

great memories that last a lifetime !

"reading this brought back so many memories , Mom! so many wonderful times!!!! (i had forgotten about how we used to check off the days with weird lines. ha!) no wonder Christmas is still my favorite holiday... Jeremy"
