Dear Readers…

We’re in the home stretch as we anxiously await Baby Jackson’s arrival some time in the next 6-8 weeks, and this month I’ll be launching all of the projects I’ve been working on behind the scenes this summer!

Heading into fall and the holiday season is definitely the busiest time here on the site, so I’ve had to work pretty intentionally to plan ahead, which was a great experience because I realized how much more fun — and motivating — it is to work ahead than to be perpetually behind. I’m hoping I’ll be able to maintain some of that momentum and work ahead more regularly rather than just in preparation for maternity leave!

With that said, we’ve got quite a few exciting things happening this month, and here’s a sneak peak at those:

Easy Homemade & Life Your Way Printables Sale

101 Days of Christmas {2013} at

101 Days of Christmas

Just two more weeks until we launch the annual 101 Days of Christmas series. My youngest daughter is so confused about when exactly Christmas is because we’ve been working on Christmas projects all summer in anticipation of the series (so I am the one person who is thankful that Hobby Lobby and other retailers have Christmas products available so early!), and I’m really excited about the projects I’ll be sharing!

I’m also excited to release a brand new ebook featuring the very best projects from the first two years of the 101 Days of Christmas series in an easy-to-browse format. It will be available in both PDF and Kindle, and I’ve got a few special offers in the works, so be sure to sign up here for the email announcement so you don’t miss those!

As always, thank you for being part of the Life Your Way community and for taking the time to comment on posts, send me emails and share the site with your friends and family!
