Let the Christmas planning begin.......

Well it's that time of year when I start all of the planning for the festive period, to non-cardmakers and crafters I''m sure they'd think that's ridiculous but I'm sure all of your crafters understand exactly where I'm coming from.

I handmake all of my cards and presents and it takes a lot of planning but I find it all so worthwhile that it's a joy rather than a chore. June is early to start planning but all of those chutneys and jams take time to mature so the earlier the better as far as I'm concerned.

I work in retail so Christmas Day tends to be just a day off to me therefore I need to have military precision in my planning otherwise it ends up so stressful that I don't enjoy it.

So that brings me to this years Christmas planner which I find absolutely invaluable. This year I've made it from a We Are Memory Keepers scrapbooking kit that I bought from QVC earlier in the year, I 'm so pleased I got it before it sold out as the papers are just gorgeous.

and here it is -

I got really carried away with the glossy accents but I think it gives those sticker alphas a whole new dimension (I sound like a craft TV presenter there lol).

I hope you like it and I can't wait to get it into use.

Thanks for looking
