I know that I'm not a mega-skilled graphic artist or painter. I'm just learning my way around .png files, vector images, and a brush stroke. I'm learning. But you know what? I really enjoy it. I feel myself stretched to learn new things and expand my skill set. And it's fun :)
Most importantly, I'm learning to be braver and just do it--just share my little works of art. Maybe people will think they are ugly. Maybe people will love them. Maybe people won't care. All those maybes doesn't mean I should be afraid of trying--of seeing.
Because, honestly, so many times I don't do something because I am too afraid of rejection or getting discouraged. Do you ever feel that way when you try new things? New things that you are still learning?
Like Zumba class at the gym? Baking for neighbors who you don't know? Experiencing a new culture and trying to speak and communicate in a different language? What's your thing?
Believe me, you should have seen me at my first Zumba class! I looked pretty ridiculous (who am I kidding? I still do!), but I tried it, and more importantly, I loved it. So, I'd encourage you to try that thing--try that thing you have been avoiding or afraid of trying.
Okay. Now about the Christmas printables. I'm sharing three versions of a free printable for you: a mint, coral, and midnight (doesn't that sound jazzier than black?) version. Feel free to print as many copies as you'd like, but keep in mind that they are for personal use only. So, please be nice and not steal or copy the images. And if you share them on your blog or Instagram, I'd love of it you linked back to this post or tag me :)
I hope that you enjoy these printables and that they add a little extra sparkle to your home this Christmas. More importantly, that they remind you to look up and remember the sweetness of the coming of our Savior and the joy that He offers us.
