For any event or holiday, planning in advance can make things a bit easier and less stressful. Christmas is no exception to the rule. It’s a very widely celebrated holiday that does take up quite a bit of time, effort and money. Planning – and budgeting properly – can make a huge difference to your mental wellbeing throughout the month and afterwards. Everyone’s Christmas Planner will look different, based on what you do and how you celebrate the holiday but I wanted to share mine in the hopes that it might give you some ideas. I have also included a free downloadable template that I used in my planner, in case you wanted to do the same.
Earlier in Blogmas, I spoke about ways to get organised. One idea was to make your own planner this Christmas, which is what I decided to do. I added some pages to my planner, inspired from the Mrs Brimble’s Jingle and Mingle craft afternoon. I thought I would share a few of those pages with you now, as I haven’t before! It’s definitely still a work-in-progress. There’s a few things I want to add, which I’ll add as I go along. However, let’s show you what’s in there right now. I haven’t included photos of every page, as I want to keep some things hidden (for example gift ideas!). But it gives you the general gist of what it currently looks like!
I can’t believe it’s December already, I definitely am not ready for Christmas… are you? We’re only a few weeks away! It’s prime time to get organised for Christmas – otherwise nothing will be done! I’ve brought the odd thing or two, almost got all of the ideas for gifts sorted. But if you’re like me, you may also be really behind with this year’s Christmas planning! I did a bit of a search to find some products to inspire me to get organised. More importantly, organised quickly – as there isn’t much time left. I found a few products that I wanted to share today and came up with three different options for you to get into your Christmas planning. Let me know if you find any of them useful too.
It’s never too early to plan ahead and pick out what stationery you could use in advance. As it’s November, it’s a great time to start looking around for your 2018 diary. I’m super excited to say that I think I’ve found the perfect one for me to carry on the go! The Busy B Diary 2018 range has been released! More than that, however, they are functional and oh so clever!
I am even more excited today because this is actually the first product I have received as a new Brand Ambassador for Busy B! I am thrilled with this role as this is a company I adore. I’ve previously featured some of their products on the blog, such as their fantastic Birthday Card Book or Address Book. Honestly, I think I’m in love with all of their products so this is a perfect role for me.
Today we are looking at the Busy B Busy Life Diary from the “Contemporary” collection. They also have a Busy Life diary from the “Pretty” collection, which features a lovely floral pattern. Both of them are the same on the inside but have a different appearance. Continue reading “Busy B Diary 2018”→
This week something happened that most of the planner community will have heard about: the Erin Condren launch! EC launched their 2017 life planners and the internet pretty much crashed… Yeah that’s right, their launch crashed the internet. Seriously.
My Facebook feed was full of talk about it. Planner groups on Facebook would have tons of daily posts about it (they are still happening!).
So, I think it’s only fair that I dedicate this week’s post to Erin Condren and the beautiful community they have helped to build. Now I couldn’t get all of this to fit in one post, as it would be too long to encompass all of this amazing into one… so I’m splitting it into two parts. Today is part one of the two part series. This will be a quick flip through my 2016 EC life planner and initial thoughts from it…
