3 months until Christmas!!!!!!
I love the Christmas season. What I love just as much, is planing for our Christmas.
School returning in September marked the start of my Christmas planning. Each year I would fill dozens of pages with doodles of craft projects, shopping lists, food ideas and promptly lose them, re-draft them, lose them, etcetera, etcetera. While I had fun daydreaming and bouncing around with ideas, it mostly ended up being a waste of time.
I contemplated using a planner last year as I followed various bloggers who swore by them, but pregnancy and a newborn put a stop to that.
Flash forward to this year and I read Cassadiva’s post on her Christmas planner. Immediately, organisation and stationery envy was awakened. Then I saw Lovely Living’s free Christmas Planner Printable with the cute owl motif and I was sunk.
The pages were printed and the planner compiled before I even had time to think about what I was doing.
I love that the whole thing is only A5 size. It is far from overwhelming and I can easily slip it into my bag when I am out and about over the holiday season.
It has templates for card and gift giving, crafting, baking, menus, traditions and calendars, just to name a few. Everything to keep me organised!
My hope is that this makes my Christmas planning more streamlined but keeps the process fun and un-chore like. I would love to hear about your experiences of using a Christmas Planner. Do you find them helpful?
