PRACTICAL HOLIDAY PLANNER...

Greetings, dear reader!

I hope this finds you staying warm and getting used to the idea that winter is nearly upon us?! I am less than thrilled at the prospect, however, there ARE good things that happen during the winter months:

  • many of the bug-gy creatures go dormant and/or die off
  • many of the germs do likewise
  • Thanksgiving!
  • Christmas!
And now I add to the list, my youngest son's wedding! November 22 is the big day, and I am busy as a mad hatter getting things ready for the gala event:



Meanwhile, between bursts of wedding madness, I am still creating goodies for my shop. This little treasure has a much more practical use (which, ask anyone who knows me, is NOT my typical!). Behold the Holiday Planner:






It includes:

  • Travel Itinerary
  • Budget Worksheet
  • Christmas Card List
  • Craft Supply List
  • Gift Ideas
  • Black Friday Coupons & Ads
  • November & December Calendars
  • Master Task List
I also added lots of 9x12 and 6x9 envelopes, to hold ads, coupons, cards, photos, and other miscellany. I joined the SisTV's "30 Days to a Handmade Holiday Online Class" and so have my Master Supply List as well as Class Schedule.

I will be stamping and decorating and adding visual goodies to the planner up until and through the holiday season. I DO after all have the title of "Queen of Embellishments" to live up to!

What are YOU doing to prepare for the coming holidays?

More soon!

XOXOXOX
