Hello! The planning and preparing have begun! I have used this system planning since 2009 and it’s my way of keeping organized so I can have the best Christmas ever! In this video I show you a flip through and my process and how I keep organized during the holiday season. I start in November to keep up with weekends, lists and to-do’s. ALL of it is in my Christmas Planner. I use a wire bound spiral and just keep adding the years to the notebook. This is a great way to reference back from year to year.
I would love to hear how you keep organized during the holidays!
Image it’s Christmas Eve, the streets are lined with pink and blue ornate homes. The pretty candles and winter green garland fills the front Windows with Christmas Cheer. Among the homes is The Stahlbaum’s house where you can hear ballroom music fill the quiet snowy street. Oh what a magical night it will be! As carriages line up to drop guests off at the Stahlbaum’s home, a man also known as the toy maker arrives. Oh to see what he is carrying in his pack. Could it be a Nutcracker?
