Every year on the 1st November, I kick off my annual Simply Christmas event.
This is the 9th consecutive year…. and I’m still just as excited as the first time, to present to you my tips and DIY projects for creating a stress free Christmas period and for putting that little bit of handmade magic back into the holidays.
Simply Christmas will run from 1st November right through to Christmas Eve and as always, there will be lots of free handmade projects, printables and recipes to help put the homemade and home baked back into the holidays. I’ve got some sweet sewing projects underway as well, so there will be lots to inspire you.
Whilst most people are not considering decorating for Christmas yet, there’s still a lot of pre-Christmas prep work that can be completed in November to make December and the run into Christmas completely stress free.
Small disclosure here…. there’s no Thanksgiving here in Australia, so I will be one of the Christmas tragics decorating early in November.
I still prefer a ‘hands on’ paper Christmas planner to prepare for the season and write out my many lists…. undoubtable, you already know this about me, but I’m a big list making kind of gal. It’s how I stay on track and organised and I want to get the bulk of Christmas prep completed early, so I can be enjoying festive time with family and friends in the busy month of December.
This year I’ve created a journal…. a very pretty shabby, vintage Christmas journal.
One filled with all kinds of lists; gift giving, shopping lists, budgets, card lists, plus recipes and menu plans, ideas for handmade gifts….. and on it goes!
This offer is available to download, only until 14th November. It will then be replaced with the next exciting Handmade Club offering…. which of course is Christmas themed and I absolutely can’t wait to share with you, but hang on, oops I’m getting ahead of myself… that’s a post for another day!!
Today I’m sharing a quick ‘Go-to’ printable checklist for November. I seem to always divide my season in two; November for preparing, gift shopping and decorating, and December for all the fun celebrations, baking, gift wrapping and social stuff.
The November checklist contains all the things I like to tick off during November in readiness for the ‘silly season’.
It’s convenient letterhead/A4 size makes it perfect to pop onto a clipboard or onto your fridge, so you can see it at a glance.
I can’t wait to share the magic of the Christmas season with you!!
