Have We Got a Freebie for You: Valentine’s Day Wallpaper

Free Valentine's Day Desktop Wallpaper + Radiant Rumble Blog

Hello all!

Just wanted to share a bit of Valentine’s Day with you before things get away from us and it’s already here! I’ve created a desktop wallpaper, and I actually think it’s super cute (it’s on my own desktop as I’m typing this), so I wanted to share! Click below:

“Happy Valentine’s Day” Wallpaper

And of course I’m going to ask you to leave some comments on what you think – and maybe even give suggestions for next year and/or upcoming holidays? I’d like to know what you’d like to see – and be creative! Even those “unmentioned” holidays are something I’d be interested in creating a freebie for – just shoot me a line!

Short, sweet, to the point. Not all posts will be this short, but Wednesday posts are usually saved in an attempt to share something awesome and/or get you excited, rather than be completely informational.

Pin this if you loved it! The more shares, the merrier! Thank you!!

Welcome back!!

We have a freebie for you today, and it’s all about Valentine’s Day! First, we wanted to share some favorite verses about God’s love, below:

+ Ephesians‬ ‭4‬:‭2‬
Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love.

+ 1 John 3:16
This is how we know what love is: Jesus Christ laid down his life for us. And we ought to lay down our lives for our brothers and sisters.

+ Matthew 22:37
Jesus replied: “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.”

God’s love is abounding and all-encompassing. His love is the ultimate Valentine’s Day love.

Our Christmas Meals + Favorite Recipe!

Christmas Meals + Favorite Recipe
Mmm… Christmas!! The time of year where the lights, decorations, and all of the smells creeping from the kitchen are definitely something to look forward to! I love Christmas, especially the decorating part! I always find an excuse to get something new every single year to put up – whether it be an ornament, or something for the wall. I think I probably have enough for a lifetime, but I can’t help it, because I love Christmas time!

I’ve also always loved baking around the holidays, from pies to cookies to candy to cheesecake… whatever new or old recipe I’ve found that I either know tastes good, or I think might. What is it about this time of year that makes us want to make some of the yummiest, yet probably not so healthy, food we can?! Why don’t we make these things throughout the year to help spread it out a bit? I guess that’s why it’s called “The Holidays”! It’s a time to celebrate with good food and family, and when we do that, we go big!

Through the years, from what I remember, our family has been known to meet for Christmas Eve Dinner, Christmas Day Brunch, or an early Christmas Day Lunch/Dinner. At these get-togethers, there’s always a few things that get repeatedly asked for, such as my Mother’s rolls or biscuits, and my Grandmother’s Jell-O Salad. Besides a few repeat-worthy dishes, there is always a different smorgasbord of food!

Of course, you would expect the choices to be a bit different from brunch to lunch or dinner, but even then, I don’t remember having the same thing every year. When asked what we have for Christmas Dinner, I shrug and say, “We don’t really have ‘Christmas food’, it’s just whatever.” And it’s true! Usually one person plans the “main meal” and then everyone else brings side dishes, dessert or drinks. One thing is for sure, though: there are always sooo many choices and not enough stomach!! (Anyone still getting over that Thanksgiving Feast??)

So, since we are always sporadic with our Christmas menu, I did want to share something that everyone always asks for! Whether it’s Thanksgiving or Christmas, this dish constantly gets rave reviews. In memory of my Grandmother this Christmas Season, here is her Jell-O Salad recipe:

Gma’s Jell-O Salad

2 Cups Boiling Water
1 Pkg Cherry Jell-O
1 Pkg Strawberry Jell-O 
1 13oz Can Crushed Pineapple, drained well
1 Pkg Frozen Strawberries
1 Can Whole Cranberry Sauce

Mix Jell-O with boiling water, add remaining ingredients. Pour into bowl or mold of choice and let set in refrigerator.

Merry Beginning of the Christmas Season! (That’s a thing, right?)

Ways to Get Out of the Holiday Card Rut

Ways to Get Out of the Holiday Card Rut

We all know what comes with every holiday season: the laughter, family time, amazing smells, sparkly things, cool weather… and those holiday cards.

For some, it’s super easy to go out and buy a cute pack of cards to stick in the mail. For others, it’s super easy to create their own cards and stick them in the mail. But almost always, if you’ve been at it long enough, it’s kinda-sorta a tiny bit of a dread – no matter where you fall within those lines. Not because you necessarily don’t want to do it, or that there isn’t a bountiful supply to choose from. Mostly, it’s just because you always want them to be unique, fun, and memorable – something no one would want to throw away. Not a boring, half-felt picture of some turkey or Christmas tree.

The time for cards to be sent off is nearing, so what will you do about it this year?

The following are some ideas that should help you get out of that holiday card rut:

+ Utilize photos, but better
A simply unique example would be the 3-in-1 card from Artifact Uprising. It’s a card, it’s a photo, and it’s a tag. It’s cute, enjoyable, memorable and interactive (businesses could use the photo slot for a photo coupon)!

+ Fold it up
Create a collage of photos with your greeting in the center, and print it on a square piece of paper (you could use scrapbook paper with a holiday print on the back). Then, fold it according to these origami star instructions, buy some envelopes & send it on its way! If photos aren’t your thing, toss the photos and go greeting-only.

+ Go for practicality
Depending on your recipients, they may like a more useful item (especially if you send them out early!), like double-sided coasters! You can get these custom-made at several online print shops (zazzle.com and cafepress.com to name a few) with a photo on one side and a greeting on the other – they’ll be festive, a keepsake, and useful year after year!

+ Send a scent
For the DIYers, these next two may just be what you’ve been looking for… Make DIY Potpourri Satchels (make it into an ornament, too!) and attach a cute, free printable holiday tag as your card. Super easy to make, and it will smell good, too!

+ Send joy
A jar of joy, that is. These little DIY confetti packets would be great as a magnet, as well as a card. Find some festive confetti at your local craft store and include your greeting as the backside (instead of both front and back being clear) of the jar. The recipients will have fun shaking it around to reveal your message and then putting it on their fridge.

+ Fast, but awesome
Most of the above examples are somewhat complicated and/or time-consuming. If you really don’t have the time and want them made for you, here are a few unique sites we think may help:

Printable Wisdom
Artifact Uprising
Holiday Cards Pretty Enough to Frame

Now, get to work! Send out radiant holiday cards that will wow (and maybe even smell like Christmas, too), and tag us in your photos – we’d like to see them!!
