  3. I think my favorite planner is the one with JOY written on it. Tips....hmmm...I don't honestly know that I have an organization tip for the holidays. I do have to say that sometimes you just can't do everything...we have had to say no to invites because otherwise we'd never enjoy December. =) My tip would be to remember it's about Him!

    Thanks again and God bless your weekend. =)

  4. thanks Anita! yeah, some of the chipboard pieces because they were part of the set, but I think that the red polka dot one was my favorite.

  5. I would love to win one of these planners! They are all so cute! I like the red one with the skier on the front! I don't consider myself very organized, so I really don't have any tips!

  6. I'm a new follower....thanks to Anita for posting on her blog!

  7. Im a follower here and love the planner with the sparkly blue snowflakes. Thanks for the chance to win...and Happy Thanksgiving to you and your hubby:)

  8. My favorite organizational tip? Plan ahead! Between all the different ministry Christmas parties/programs at church, our December calendar filled up on ONE Sunday afternoon.
    We like to celebrate the season with friends and family so its fun but it definitely takes planning ahead.
