Celebrating Slow: Fun Goodies for You!!

Wish I could make you each a cute little pie and have a big party to celebrate! Since we can't do that - let's have a party right here!

Months ago, I had the idea of creating a fun download to share when my book released. In my work ahead fashion, I have had this made and ready to share since oh, about last Christmas! So excited to par-tay today!

To get your free goodies, subscribe to my newsletter here! I'd suggest making sure your printer is set to 100% meaning it isn't trying to save any ink on this one! Or, you can upload to your favorite copy/print site and have it printed in store. I had the copy shown printed at Staples for a few dollars and was pleased with the quality vs. printing at home.

Ok, so let's take a peek at what your download includes!!!

A slow calendar for the year! One activity for you to enjoy each month that cultivates slow! You can see more details on how to craft this little calendar here.

A prayer for slow: keep this tucked in your Bible or posted in a visible spot to encourage and remind your heart of the beauty of slow.

A quick idea list for days that you need some slow fast but don't have a lot of time - 15 minutes or less to a little more slow in your day! Post this on your fridge for handy and simple inspiration!

How about a fun garland!? If you want it to be printed on both sides, print two copies and hang back to back!

And, a little mini garland! Fun for a sweet table decor or a cake topper!

There is a set of fun napkin rings - have fun creating your own beautifully slow memories!

You'll also find sweet gift tags for taking slow on the road and gifting to a friend and a slow journal page for your own reflection and processing!

Enjoy the fun goodies! I'd love to see how your use your download - you can share your photos on Instagram and tag with #slowlanebook.

Thanks for celebrating with me!!

I've never been a crafter or been able to really make beauty before. Since I started at the beginning of your blog, my thoughts are changing for the "beauty" of it! Your book couldn't have come at a better time. I'm in April 2012 which is around when I first found your blog. I'm savoring every post. My book is in California now, per tracking! Thank you for putting so much thought and consideration (and I know much prayer) into the women who would be reading your book. I know we all be blessed by it. And don't be surprised if I show up to get mine autographed!

Monica, Thank you so much for this! I bought more printer ink today in preparation of printing all of the goodies. You are so sweet to include your readers this way in celebrating your book. And, I received my copy this week! It is so beautiful! What a work of art! I am trying to enjoy it SLOWLY and savor it rather than read it cover to cover like I want to. :)

I'm excited about your book, Monica! I wonder if Hobby Lobby ever considers products from individual entrepreneurs. That would be a great place to have a faith based, family, craft book sold, such as yours. I think I would attempt to drop them a book and presentation letter in the mail. You wouldn't really have anything to lose trying.
