Freebie Friday -Autumn Sampler Planner Stickers

Freebie Friday Header

Hi everyone!  It’s time for a Freebie Friday!  I hope you’ve had a great week.  I’m recovering from Covid-19/ Pneumonia slowly but surely.  Most symptoms are gone. The one remaining one is I still have that heaviness in my chest and get winded when I exert myself like going up and down the stairs, walking through the grocery store, etc.  Now that my son is back in school I really want to start swimming laps again, but I can’t do that till my lungs improve. But my doctor returned my call about an hour and a half ago where I asked for an inhaler and he’s going to call that in to my pharmacy, so I hope that helps resolve the issue!

So in the meantime, I’ve been sitting here in my trusty recliner working on printable planner stickers for my Etsy shop and trying to get some traffic there to get a little supplemental income coming in for my son and I.  I SO miss my husband.  It’s hard to believe in just a few short weeks he will have been gone to be with the Lord for two whole years.  It feels like two months instead of years.  But the Lord has been good and so so faithful.

I remembered a few hours ago that I had posted that I intended to get back on track with my “regularly scheduled” posts that I was doing before my husband’s cancer became evident.  That being said, Covid interrupted my good intentions 🙂  But in remembering that today is Friday, I decided to post an autumn sampler of all I’ve been creating and listing in my Etsy shop.

September 2021 Scripture Writing Plan – God’s Faithfulness

September 2021 Scripture Writing Plan HeaderThe theme for the September, 2021 scripture writing plan was really clear to me.  I’ve been through a lot this month and God’s faithfulness has been evident during every step.

Like many others, my son and I developed Covid-19.  My son had a mild case of it  (praise Jesus), but it really hit me like a ton of bricks.  I had every symptom listed on the CDC’s web site other than loss of taste.  I had the rest of it.  I was in the hospital for two days on oxygen, an IV with strong antibiotics and steroids. The main reason for the hospitalization was that I’d developed Covid pneumonia.

The infectious disease doctor released me at the perfect time.  My main concern had been the welfare of my son while I was hospitalized and one of my best friends stepped in and took good care of him. I was released last Sunday afternoon, in time for my friend to be able to go to work the next day without worrying about Evan.  I can’t thank Angie enough for her great care of Evan and she even did some housework for me while I was gone <3

Freebie Friday -Early Autumn Printable Planner Stickers

Freebie Friday August 6 2021

This is a reposted Freebie Friday, but as I want to get back to steady blogging a few times a week (as opposed to the once a month I had fallen into after my husband passed almost two years ago), and since it’s getting close to autumn, I thought this would be appropriate for today’s Friday freebie 🙂  )

I really love this week’s set, if I do say so myself 🙂  I love the colors and how the whole set came together!

Here is the freebie printable planner stickers from that set for this week. You can find my other Freebie Friday posts HERE.

You can check out the rest of the set in my Etsy shop here.  This is formatted to fit the classic-size Happy Planner planner, but you can always use it in other planners and bullet journals.  You can find the cut files for them all in my Etsy listings too.

Print these out on full-size sticker paper.  I use these here.  They’re priced great and you can write on them easily. They are good enough quality for my needs.  If you want a top-quality sticker paper look for these or clear ones here. (Though not all pens or markers will write well on the clear ones). If you don’t want to use sticker paper, you can print them on card stock or regular printer paper and glue them down.  Honestly, the sticker paper is the best way, however. Regardless of the type.

If you’d like this printable, click on the image below to pull up the full-sized PDF file for printing.  If you use this kit, I would LOVE to see how you use it! Please comment below so I can see 🙂

Please remember this is for PERSONAL USE ONLY!

August 2021 Scripture Writing Plan – Harvest and Completion

August 2021 scripture writing planHello family of God 🙂  I hope you’ve all had a great summer so far!  I’ve been SUPER busy revamping my Etsy shop after opening it back up after a two year hiatus (I closed it when my husband went to be with Jesus almost two years ago).  I’ve added a LOT of new printable planner stickers lately and have kept really busy letting all those pent-up creative juices flow 🙂 I just created a new header for the scripture writing posts too. It was time for a change 🙂  If you haven’t been there in a while (or never) why don’t you visit and give it a look-see if you are a planner girl/guy like me. I’m taking a break, however, to get this August 2021 scripture writing plan out to you all.

But onto our scripture writing plan for August.

It seems to me like a LOT more people are studying or listening or asking around about Bible prophecy (last days events) than ever before.  With so much going on in our world with pandemics, shots or no shots, masks or no masks, the growing threat in the middle east and Russia, Iran and others; you’d be in the minority if you haven’t been at least thinking about it.

I’ve been a Bible prophecy nerd student since I was a teenager (and that was many moons ago 🙂  ) In light of all this, I remembered a scripture writing plan I’d posted a few years ago in the fall, “Harvest and Completion”. I decided to pull it out and brush the dust off and post it again for August.

I was reviewing a web page that lists the harvest cycles for Israel and when I saw that July and August is the harvest for figs and olives it settled it in my mind to reshare it.  After all, Jesus said that when the fig tree blossoms to look for His coming.  Of course, serious Bible students knows that the fig tree has always been the symbol of the nation of Israel, which “blossomed” when it became a nation in 1948.  We are getting to the end of the generation.  For more on the parable of the fig tree visit this site.

Ok, Helen, enough gabbing, get on with the August, 2021 scripture writing plan 🙂

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I’m so thankful that so many of you are enjoying and spiritually benefiting from these monthly scripture writing plans! I love putting them together for you knowing that you find them useful and uplifting! Use these passages to write out the scriptures and grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ! Click on the image below to pull up the full-sized PDF file for printing –>

August 2021 scripture writing plan thumbnail

Some of you with vision problems may have a tough time viewing a graphic but your operating system will read the text for you if I type it here in the post.  So for those of you with that concern, here’s the list 🙂

August 1:  Genesis 8:20-22

2:  Matthew 9:35-38

3:  2 Corinthians 9:10-15

4:  Leviticus 26:3-5

5:  Psalm 67:1-7

9:  Revelation 14:13-16

10:  Galatians 6:6-10

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I usually print these out on 28 pound white paper (or 32 pound paper is even better) and just stick them right into my planner or journal. The heavier the paper, the less chance it will tear out of your binder or planner by accident and helps resist bleeding or ghosting from your pens or markers. It helps the page turn easier too.

For planner stickers, etc:  If you choose to print these out on full-size (letter) sticker paperI use these here. They’re priced great and you can write on them easily. They are good enough quality for my needs. If you want a top-quality sticker paper look for these or clear vinyl ones here. (Though not all pens or markers will write well on the clear ones). If you don’t want to use sticker paper, you can print them on card stock or regular printer paper and glue them down. Honestly, the sticker paper is the most economical  way, however for everyday planning stickers. Regardless of the type.

Going through a lot of ink printing out planner stickers? Do like I did and enlist in the HP Instant Ink program! I’ve saved so much money on ink since I did several years ago. They have different plans, but the one I’m in is the plan that lets me print up to 300 pages worth of ink for just over $11 per month. That’s regardless of the amount of ink on the page.  I love printing out pictures on photo paper.  I fit 4 4×6-inch photos on one sheet of photo paper.  Imagine the amount of photos you can print at four pages per one page and the cost is the same for a full page of photo ink as it is for one dot.  It goes by the page, not the amount of ink!  You can choose lesser pages for a lower rate, but I do a lot of printing between coupons, planner stickers and other things.

July 2021 Scripture Writing Plan – Freedom and Liberty

July 2021 scripture writing plan headerHi everyone!  I hope you are off to a great start for your summer of 2021.

I asked the members of my Christian Planner, Journal, and Craft Fellowship Facebook group what they would like to have as a theme for this month’s scripting writing.  The majority seemed to want “Freedom”.  That made good sense to me because the holiday most celebrated in July (other than my birthday hehe) is Independence Day (aka The Fourth of July) here in the U.S.

We as believers should reflect that our true freedom comes in the freedom bought and paid for by Christ on the cross.

So here are 31 Bible passages to reflect on each day to that end 🙂

June 2021 Scripture Writing Plan – Moving Forward-Looking to the Future

June 2021 scripture writing plan header Hello friends 🙂

I hope you are all doing well today as we head into (nearer to) summer months. It feels like summer anyway as today was my son’s last day of school for the school year for regular length school days (he’ll have a few extended school days here and there between now and the fall but today was his last day of the regular school season).

My word for the year for 2020 was “Rise” as that’s all I was expecting of myself shortly after my husband went to be with the Lord in September, 2019.  This year it’s “Forward”.  So I thought I would have the June scripture writing plan reflect that with God’s Word 🙂

I’ve had a lot going on lately!  My son turned 18 in March (which was bittersweet without my husband) and since my son has autism, I had to get legal guardianship of him.  Yesterday was our court date and the kind judge did award me with his guardianship.  I’m so glad to have that done and behind us.

I’ve had appointments once a week the past three weeks with my orthopedic doctor getting injections in my knees each time.  That doctor is an hour’s drive one way.

And if you haven’t noticed, I’ve been putting  a LOT of work into this blog and my other one, CalvaryCouponers.com. Lots of work “under the hood” as well as a few you can see trying to get them both updated and the kinks worked out before my new laptop arrives when I hope to hit the ground running with lots of ideas to come.  I ordered it on April 7th and it’s FINALLY showing as being shipped  few days ago.  It’s scheduled to (hopefully) arrive a week from today.  So I’ve been working hard to get both my blogs straightened out and looking good in the meantime.  All that on my REALLLLLY slow current laptop 🙂

I’m so thankful that so many of you are enjoying and spiritually benefiting from these monthly scripture writing plans! I love putting them together for you knowing that you find them useful and uplifting!

April 2021 Doodle Challenge Resurrection Day

I like to keep the Easter month’s doodle challenge the same every year.  Resurrection Day is the high holy day (literally) for all Christian believers around the world, and this year it’s April. There’s much we should bear in mind about Christ’s death and resurrection, and of course the resurrection is an enormous reason for celebration and keeping in rememberance all He’s done for us!
