Document December With Susanne: My Project

Hello again, Susanne, back today with the reveal of my Document December project.

Here’s the kit I revealed yesterday:

santas list 2

And here is what I am using it for:  TO PLAN MY DECEMBER
I have made 4 x 6 and 3 x 4 pocket cards to list all the chores and the activities, step-by-step that I need to accomplish to be ready for Santa’s Big Day.  Like Santa, I am making my lists, and checking them twice.  Here’s how it looks sitting in a pretty little basket:

There are cards for preparations, gift giving, sending greeting cards, decorating, etc.  There are also a few cards for taking notes of things as they happen.  I can slip the gift lists into a 4 x 6 photo holder to carry in my purse when I shop.  When Christmas is over, I can take some of the cards and pair them with pictures to fully document what happened in my project life album for December.  How is that for planning ahead?  Are you wondering yet what’s gotten into me?  I am.

I started using the cards in November, and I can tell you that so far, they are working pretty well.  I'm getting a kick out of date-stamping things as they are accomplished.

I still have a few bits and bobs of the kit left, so I am also toying with the idea of making a few tags too.  I want to use up as much of this as I can, because I have plenty of other Christmas papers if I want to do layouts after the holidays.

So how is that for making the practical pretty.  Not to mention, planning now and documenting later.  Santa would consider me a very good girl. Check! Check!
