Getting organised....

As I'm sure you have all guessed by now I do have Christmas running through my blood, I love every single part of it.  But I do tend to get a little stressed out as each year work is getting bigger and busier and now my craft is kicking off.  That's without keeping house and making Christmas happen. 

So I thought I would get myself organised. 
Another love of mine is lists, so I thought I would combine the two.

In my latest issue of Papercraft Inspirations there was this little project...

I instantly got onto the internet and ordered a few items to create my own ~ perfect!

So this is my version....

Folder, refills from Paperchase
Months download available from Papercraft Inspirations
Poinsettia ~ Wild Orchid Crafts
Paper,Santa topper ~ First Edition papers ~ Festive treat & Christmas Joy
Ribbon ~ crafty stash


Sorry the photo's are so dark ~ there is definitely not much light around in Devon this morning.

I am hoping that this little Christmas organiser will help me get organised at this busy period and will be added to and prove very helpful in years to come.

It really does get so crazy here that I am next year starting early (maybe a lot earlier than most of you would like to hear) possibly doing a bit all year round, but I have to if I want to pull it all off and enjoy the holidays. 
 Last year I ran myself into the grown trying to do everything and ended up with flu over Christmas ~ well not again!

I am entering my organiser into the following challenges:

Allsorts challenge ~ Anything but square
Cupcake Craft Challenges ~ Textalicious
Winter Wonderland ~ Make your card sparkle ~ technically I know it's not a card, but it is Christmas and it sparkles with the glittered paper.
Craft Your Passion ~ Anything goes PLUS Brown

Thank you for popping along

Good luck on the organization for this year. It looks like you are well on your way. Even if it isn't as organized as you might like, your organizer will be wonderful to look at.
