My Christmas planner week

My decoration for the week of Christmas is a slightly different festive wars....well, due to rules surrounding products, space wars. The stickers are from fantasy design store on etsy and the washi tape was lidl!
I love this kit as its not twee or kitsch. In fact it's perfect for me!

Planner set up: week starting Dec 5

Here's my basic set up for next week.
Stickers are from Sunshine Sticker Co on etsy. It looks quiet so far, and the only plans at the moment are dinner with some friends on Friday, and taking the girls to see Christmas in a forest on Saturday.

Winter wedding

Yesterday my stepsister got married. It was a lovely country house, 45 minutes from home.
We hardly knew anyone.
The wedding was at 130 and the food wasn't until 5, so we had very tired, hungry children.
We didn't actually eat anything.

Weddings with small children are very stressful affairs.

I decided to use nap time to do something for me, so pulled out the last lite kit from crafty templates and a picture from Rosalind's first birthday. I don't usually use coloured card as a base, I'm not sure why but I struggle to make it work.

I'm really happy with how this turned out. Maybe I'm getting my scrap back?

Letter to santa

Sitting at her desk, carefully writing her letter to the big guy.
Santa has already been shopping so hopefully she'll be happy.

Confessions of a Plannerholic: December bucket list

This week's 'Plannerholic' theme is December Bucket list. I've had a long think about this and have come up with the following:
December, isn't the same without a visit to the big man. Now I can't include this on my list as we went today, but I still wanted to share this special moment....
Not the most successful Santa visit...

Now the list...

1.  child free adult time.
My husband and I have had a total of two hours child free since number two came along and its been tough. So I want adult time. 

2. Cinema.
I'm torn between Star Wars: Rogue One and Fantastic Beasts. I will probably only have the chance to go to the cinema once.

3. Cake.
Starbucks ginger loaf to be precise. My mostest favouritest cake and only available at Christmas.

4. Finish a project.
I have numerous crochet projects on the go and would love the time to finish one!!

Preparing for next week

Next week is my last week where my planner is non festive. I've gone for an Alice in Wonderland theme and as you can see, Monday I will be going down the rabbit hole when little Miss has her  (belated) one year immunisations. I'm dreading it. We already have rubbish sleep from this one!!

Confessions of a Plannerholic: Hallowe'en decorations

Halloween week in my planner is pretty sparse looking at the moment. Page kit is from its only me caralee. I wanted something bright and fun as I'm not really a Hallowe'en person, and there was loads of choice out there!

The planner charm started life as a necklace from h&m children's section which I cut down to size.

September's sticker haul

I've been a bit naughty this month. I had my first decent pay after maternity leave so decided to treat myself to some sticker goodness. I don't have to feel too guilty as planner stickers are reasonably priced and you can use as many or few as you like.

I've already bought some more for October, but that's another post!

Callie Rose Co

These are fab, bright kits. Plenty of blank stickers for adding your writing to. Definitely worth checking out the shop!

It's only me caralee

Great fun and fab colours with lots of functional stickers.

Chocho and mimi

Great icons, bright and fun. I particularly love the birthday banners as I'm Terrible with remembering birthdays!
