|xmas organisation diary|
i love the idea of making more progress with my christmas planning in november so december runs more smoothly and a little less frantically! lucky for me someone is doing all the hard work and putting all the planning and ideas in place so i can follow along ... thank you kerryanne from shabby art!
first on her list of things to do is an A5 planner for all the to do's that go along with christmas ... and again she has provided all the necessary printables for you to download here in pdf form. what a lovely lady :)
i grabbed an old A5 notebook and ripped out the pages that had been used then glued in the downloads i needed, making muliples of the ones i wanted more of. i then jazzed up the cover very slightly and added a pocket to the inside cover to put the list downloads into.
|the downloadable free christmas organisation pages|
|the inside cover pocket for the shopping lists|
|november weekly printables|
|a gift list for all the immediate family with a santa's stocking|
list hidden underneath :)
outcome: not too shabby ;) but hopefully shabby enough to make christmas in this household run just that little bit smoother. i have yet to put any figures onto the christmas budget page (that would be just plain spooky) YET but i am planning on mulling this page over with my dearest and seeing if we can find a happy medium after the argument about christmas spending of course! honestly, my husband is so laid back and he knows my passion for this time of the year (and our kids) that the argument is more of a roll of the eyes kind of deal where i know i'm wrong but we do it anyway :)
