Almost time for Holiday Planning

Im getting so excited about Autumn coming and the hoilidays and cozing up with a blanket and my littles....

I came across an amazing deal and resource that I want to share with you!!!

A dear friend of mine uses this planner:

every Holiday season. I am soooo impressed with it. It is so much more than a calendar or list of presents to buy. The Graham Family Ministries have done SUCH a good job of including all the things important to me :)

I "borrowed" this description:
What you will find in this 146 page ebook:

Blank monthly and weekly calendar pages for planning your year

Weekly "To Do" lists showing exactly what needs to be done each week

Thanksgiving and Christmas Menus forms

Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Years Recipe Card forms

A Holiday Self-Evaluation form

Shopping Lists

"Sheri's Tips"- tips to make your holidays meaningful, shared throughout the ebook

Christmas Craft and Gift Ideas

Memory Making Ideas for the Family

Holiday Journal Pages

Many, many forms such as:

Christmas Gift Shopping List
Gift Making Checklist
Christmas Card Checklist
List of Baked Items to Share/Give Away
Favorite Meals to Freeze for Later
Decoration Ideas
Needed Supplies to Purchase This Week
Holiday Baking Schedule
Kids' Gift Idea List
Christmas Gifts to be Shipped

PLUS!!! This ebook includes "The Glorious Coming: A Jesse Tree Celebration of Advent" - Jesse Tree devotionals, ornaments, and instructions to make your own Jesse Tree!

PLUS!!! Some of our favorite holiday recipes!

Some things that I hadn't thought about but should have: doubling a recipe each week to avoid the drama later during the holiday rush. Planning time for your children to make gifts for people.

During August and September you can get $4.00 off this e-book by entering:

Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday. I'm already excited about it... In August. Lol

Dreamgirl said...

Looks like a great book!
I can't say I'm looking forward to autumn just yet... I'm a summer person who loves the sun, the beach and the warmth. I guess I grew up in the wrong country - Norway!

Just stopping by from SITS wishing you a very Happy Monday!

Stopping by from SITS! I love this! I can't wait for the holidays and this would be perfect to organize some of the chaos.

I love autumn and the all the holidays that follow. My hubby is in the Army and right now we're stationed in Hawaii, so that cozying up under a nice warm blanket, with a good book, and some hot cocoa feeling doesn't really exist here. Don't get me wrong, living in Hawaii can have it's definite pluses, but it can also have a a few negatives too! :)

Your blog is beautiful and I love all the inspirational content! I'm having sort of a rough week, and it's just what I needed!

This book seems fabulous! I'm a total organizer junkier so this would be perfect for me. I'm totally going to check it out!

Have a terrific Tuesday!

PS-I'm giving away a #20.00 Visa Gift Card at my blog! If you win it could go toward buying this book! :)

Hi there- stopping by from SITS. Wow, summer went fast, didn't it? My daughter's starting middle school this year. I debated on home schooling but she talked me into giving her a chance to do well in public school. She's a really good kid, its the other ones that worry me.
