A New Homeschool Planner and a {giveaway}!!

If you've been around me or my blog for long then you know that I love planning.  And I am a paper and pen/pencil kind of girl--haven't quite made it to the digital planner stage much. 

A really good homeschool planner is very essential to me and I'm excited to share this brand new downloadable one recently released by one of my in-real-life friends, Jennifer at Godly Glimpses.  She has created a very useful and detailed homeschooling planner ...and it's SO pretty, too (I LOVE functional AND pretty!!).  

This lovely planner comes with:
  • a couple of choices for the cover (which Jennifer even offers to personalize with your family name or other title should you so desire)  
  • parent and student info pages (with lots of color options)
  • goal planning sheets
  • year-at-a-glance AND full calendar pages for each month
  • daily schedule spread sheets
  • attendance charts
  • grade sheets
  • curriculum lists
  • weekly planning pages
  • Scripture memory lists (I love these!)
  • field trip logs
....and SO much more!  Jennifer even includes a personal note telling how she likes to organize her personal copy and gives some great tips in this download of 51 pages.  

I am very excited to be trying out this planner this year since the one I have been using is merely a hodge-podge of random pages.  The detailed sheets included in this planner are incredibly helpful to me and having so many color choices is lots of fun, too.  Jennifer has really put a lot of thought and care into this planner and it shows.  

You can purchase this planner for $15 through this link.  Jennifer has generously given My Blessed Life readers a 20% off coupon code: BLESSED20 (good through September 30, 2013).

Now for the really fun part ...Jennifer is allowing me to giveaway a free download of her planner to one of my readers!!  Who loves free stuff?!!

My most essential thing in a homeschool planner is lots of room for individual planing for each child.
I agree with Jessica-room to plan for each boy so we stay on track!

Well, now that I'm down to just 3 in school, I confess I get pretty sloppy with planning. I just need something that is easy to use that will keep me on track and I won't forget STUFF!!

I have no children but wish to pass this resource on to my daughter in the faith who is a young mother and just beginning to school her children at home.

Plenty of blank fill in the space for writing what we did and plenty of space for what we've read. :-)

Making Notebooks

Recently I tried out a new craft idea~and it was SO much fun!! And extremely frugal, too. That's always a bonus, right? So here we go: 1. Take your basic composition notebook (purchased at the back-to-school sales for .99 each). 2. Go to your craft supplies and get your Mod Podge ready, along with a good paintbrush. 3. Look through all those scrapbook papers you've been randomly collecting and choose some. 3. After choosing your paper for the cover of your book and trimming it to fit, start *painting* the cover with the glue. Next, give the back of your paper a good coat of glue, too. (I left the binding uncovered so that I could use a contrasting paper there later on). 4. Glue it on! Remember to smooth out any air bubbles under the paper. 5. Flip the cover open and make a few cuts on the corners so that they will fold over nice and neat, then add a little more glue to the edges of the inside cover and a little more to the paper edges. 6. Fold them over a

The Making of an Egyptian Death Mask

We are learning all about the ancient world this year with Story of the World I and loving it! We've been learning a lot about Egypt, of course, which is completely fascinating. Most recently we have studied the New Kingdom of Egypt, which includes the story of King Tut. So we decided making an Egyptian death mask in the style of King Tut's would be a fun project. First since it was too cold at the time to paper mache in the garage (it probably would have frozen instead of dried-ha) and it was too messy to do it in the house, we decided to pick up a couple of cheap craft masks at Hobby Lobby. Next we cut out cardboard shapes to complete the shape of the death mask, attaching them with hot glue. Vince even put a little detail on the *beard* with the hot glue per The Princess' request. Then the kiddos started to paint them with this metallic gold tempera paint. It worked okay for the cardboard, but would not coat the plastic of the mask. We thought maybe a second c

Door Hanger Chore Charts

My kids have had a chore chart for a while.  It's one of those magnetic boards and they share it.  However, it's not by their rooms and often they (and I) forget to update it.  Plus it's a little bulky.   When I saw the concept of a door hanger chore chart on Pinterest, I loved it!  It was compact, right there were the kiddos could see it coming out and going into their rooms, and it costs almost nothing to make.   I headed over to one of my favorite stores: Hobby Lobby, of course.  They  have these little wooden door hangers for .79.  I also grabbed a couple of packets of decorative buttons for $1.99 each.  I already had the clothes pins and the paint so those cost me nothing.   I began by painting the door hangers (I used tempera paints because that's what I had).  Then I grabbed a fine point Sharpie and the clothes pins and started writing chores on them, making sure to write them correctly so they will clip on the right direction.   The left
