Making a list, checking it twice...

Tis the time of year for gift giving...and lists! There's lots to keep track of this time of year and although there are apps for gift giving I have found that I prefer to have an actual notebook that I can jot everything down in.'s one more thing for me to decorate cute for Christmas, right?! And the Gingerbread and Peppermint Classic Kit was perfect for decorating my notebooks.

So I started with a couple notebooks that I purchased on Etsy a while back but I've also made these myself with some cardstock and grid paper. They are passport size, so just under 3x4. 

I ended up creating 3 different books, one for gift giving (including gift exchanges, teacher gifts, etc), one for treats (recipes I want to make this season including new ones I want to try, shopping lists, etc), and one for fun activities I want to do this season (including a screening of White Christmas at a historic theater here in town, viewing Christmas lights, going ice skating, etc).

After decorating my notebooks I put them all inside my Foxy Fix and adhered a red bow and a Tim Holtz metal charm.
