Free Gingerbread Coloring Page


A few years ago we started the tradition of letting the boys make their own "gingerbread" houses. We pick out our favorite Christmas goodies, hot glue graham crackers in the shape of a house, and have fun eating treats while we decorate.
This year I thought it would be fun to make a coloring page for the boys to enjoy as well, so I'm sharing it with ya'll! You can print the gingerbread coloring page here.
From the Pen & Paint family to yours, we wish you the *sweetest* of holidays!

Welcome November - Gratitude FREE Desktop Background & Wallpaper


November has caught me by surprise, pretty much like it does every year. Yesterday I realized I hadn't even created the free monthly desktop or wallpaper. As I sat down to work on it today I remembered this Autumn bouquet I created a few weeks ago. I loved the simplicity and softness of the watercolors. I know it's not traditional Fall colors, but something about it reminds me to slow down and really reflect on the many things I can give thanks for. I decided it would be the perfect background once I discovered this quote by Henry Ward Beecher: Gratitude is the fairest blossom which springs for from the soul
As you prepare for the busy holiday season, I hope this can be a reminder to stop and recognize the big and small things for which you are grateful.
