hi all! here is a very late christmas planner for keeping you organized. i guess it's not too late, if you have a mess of papers with lists, notes ideas and plans, this would be the perfect place to keep them together and in a place where you can find them.
And consider this- this planner will last through future Christmases so you will remember how this Christmas was celebrated with old and new traditions, decorations, family, friends, gifts, and celebrations. You may add a new calendar for next year and a few more pages so it will be a running reminder of each Christmas.
so with all that said, it's really not too late to get more organized! right? lol!

i'm thinking of a seasonal planner for '10, but the way things are going, i'm not sure i will be able to put it all together before the first of the year! geesh!
i'll keep working and try and get our house decorated for the holidays, plus shopping, plus resting and enjoying, in the end it is well worth it, that week between christmas and new years is an especially fun family time when all the relaxing, visiting and playing happens woohoo!
try to relax and enjoy the season- remember what it really is all about and don't forget to create! good night, rest well, -rebecca
ohmygosh, is it cold here! 20 degrees and getting colder! yikes! it's been a long week with cold weather and sad news.
a beloved teacher, his wife and 2 friends were hit by a drunk driver and killed in an instant, last sunday evening. it has taken me this week to come to terms with this event. they left behind 2 girls just 16 and 18, so very sad. he was a dedicated p.e. teacher and sports trainer. meagen had him for special ed p.e, he was respectful and interested in the well being of all the kids, in fact, he was the force behind the special education students integrating into the varsity sports that they excelled in. with his encouragement, a close friend of jessica's has gone into the field of sports medicine. we ran into him a couple of weeks ago when we were out and about. he made a special effort to approach meagen and find out how she was doing and where she was working now. he made a difference in many of our childrens lives and will be sorely missed!

hi everyone, are we ready for the holiday season to begin? let's bring it on!
i have finally been able to create a christmas journal for all of those lists, dates and events that can overtake us, without some good organizing, geesh! i am calling it "wonder and joy" so it will remind you what this season is really about, all of these other things are suppose to be fun, not nerve wracking! lol. i have listed this journal inmy etsy shop
the cover of "wonder and joy" was created from pages of a 1935 "jo-boy happy hour reader" the writable pages and stuff-able pockets measure 4.25" X 7.5"
the first page divider has a place to write your name.
the pocket on this reverse side of the divider is a bottom pocket with the santa head and little girl. three of these dividers have full page pockets, you can tell by the half circle cut out at the top, plus either side pockets or bottom pockets, lots of room to stash things.
