~ Christmas! The very word brings joy to our hearts. No matter how we may dread the rush, the long Christmas lists for gifts and cards to be bought and given - when Christmas Day comes there is still the same warm feeling we had as children, the same wamth that enfolds our hearts and our homes ~

Welcome to this first blog of the 12 Joys of Christmas - where I'll be featuring 12 delightful projects to help you prepare for the festive season over the next 12 weeks. There'll be something for everyone from Candles Galore, Perfect Presents, Wrap up in Style, Dine in Style, All things Yummy, Trim the Tree, Christmas Memories & lots more festive treats.

So, first of all ...

Let's get organised ... and where better to start than a Christmas Planner. I just love this gorgeous Christmas Planner. I first saw this idea at and knew I had to make one. Isn't it just so cute? It is passport size and so handy that it will easily fit into your handbag (or even pocket for that matter), so you never need be without a reminder ...

Inside you'll find pockets for your Gift List, STOCKING STUFFERS, Menus & Shopping Lists, together with two little pockets with flaps in the centre of the planner so that you can store all those receipts ... of course you could easily adapt this planner to suit your particular requirements and you could easily insert more pockets if required. The pockets are made using SU envelopes which are cut in half and the top flaps removed (except for the inside secret pockets).

If you would like full instructions on how to make this delightful planner, then please email

See you in a week's time for our next project ...

  1. What a fabulous idea Linda - I could certainly do with all the help I can get when it comes to planning for Christmas! Love the way you've used the envelopes as little pockets for the lists.
