Welcome to the 5th annual
I’m delighted to have you here participating in this fun event.
If you are new to Simply Christmas, this is the 5th year I’ve shared my vision of ‘putting the homemade and home baked back into Christmas’.
Sometimes the true meaning of Christmas gets lost in all the commercialism…. and trying to do too much makes the season stressful.
Simply Christmas demonstrates how to take back the holidays with an easy to follow blue print for adding a homemade touch to everything we do. This event takes you from planning and preparation in November through to Santa’s Supper on Christmas Eve. . . so that the days leading up to Christmas are relaxed and enjoyable.
Activities include fun family orientated projects, tutorials and how-to’s, yummy recipes, gifts, free downloads and guest posts. . . plus a weekly (Friday)Christmas link party too.
If you’d like to help spread the word, here’s a button for your side-bar. I’d be thrilled if you could let your friends know… so more people can join in. (Copy and paste the code in the box to your sidebar)
Traditionally, we kick of Simply Christmas with a Christmas ‘holiday’ planner.
This year I have two options for this popular vintage planner.
Firstly, I have designed a new free downloadable planner you can print out to use for making your own planner.
This is a completely new download, which combines gorgeous Victorian graphics with the practicality of a holiday planner. Download HERE
Planner pages include: calendars; daily/weekly event sheets; wish lists; card, email and gift lists; shopping and note lists; menu planning and grocery lists.
Below is an example of how I’ve made my planner up in previous years using an A5 art diary as the base and adhering my printed pages into the book…. along with lots of pretty embellishments.
This year I’m doing something a little different for myself…
I’ve used my vintage planner pages… plus a few extra ones I designed and had them made into a printed booklet. It is small enough to fit in my handbag, but big enough to include all the details I need to keep Christmas organized.
This booklet is available for you to purchase too!
The 2014 Vintage Christmas Planner has 48 pages, measures 5.25” x 8.25” and costs $9.95, plus postage (from US).
