I love getting a new calendar and/or planner! While I have plenty of devices that are more than capable to track all of my important dates and ideas, I am not yet trained in relying completely on my phone. I just have this crazy concept that I am able to think better when I am writing on something in front of me rather than on my phone. And I like to make little notes and goals…so it just works better that way.
It never really occurred to me that I could create my own calendars until recently, and now I have found plenty of awesome calendars that you can create and personalize yourself! I am most definitely going to work on a calendar and can’t wait to share mine with you! Here are some ideas to get your creative juices going:
When I was growing up, Thanksgiving was a mere precursor to Christmas. When we were little, we would get together with our cousins and compare Christmas lists, or get ideas of what to write down. We got older and started picking names out of a bowl with ideas of what that person wanted for Christmas. Soon, we started doing our own thing and Thanksgiving became less and less of an important holiday for me.
That all changed when I had my baby and enjoyed spending time with my family more than my friends, and truly love spending time in the kitchen. Now, I’m excited to get together with everyone, and make some homemade food to bring. Everything is made from scratch, and we all sit around and catch up and enjoy each other. The kids aren’t too busy playing with their new Christmas toys to hang out, and it’s our last holiday before the insanity of Christmas.
Whether you are hosting the Thanksgiving dinner, or you are going to a family member’s or friend’s house to celebrate, here is a recipe and a craft to help make your holidays extra special.
