It's time for another monthly challenge at Elisabeth Bell's World.
This time we'd like to see a gift for someone with a card or a gift bag. I might have cheated because I made this for ME!! LOL Although if my mom and sister see this they will try and steal it for themselves so it might be a gift after all.
Last year I made VERY elaborate Christmas planners for my mom and sister. They were spiral bound books (made with the Bind-It-All) with lots of tabs for Calendar pages, Wish Lists, To Do, Meal Planning, Etc.. It was so pretty that I never even wrote in mine!!
Well, as much as I would have liked to have done that again, I simply did not have the time this year. So instead I covered a little notepad and will use it for all keeping track of all of those holiday Things to Do, Buy and Bake.
Inside I created a little pocket for receipts, etc and a ribbon loop for my pen.
I've used Shopping Willow and gave her festive Christmas bags by paper piecing them. Now, if only I could look that fabulous while out shopping. LOL

Happy Thanksgiving to those of you in the States!! My family and I are at my Mom's today enjoying a yummy Thanksgiving dinner, taking naps, writing out our Christmas lists and decorating her tree. That's my family's Thanksgiving tradition and I'm going to enjoy every second of it!!
I am very blessed and have SO MUCH to be Thankful for ... My sweet little family, my health, my faith, and my friends. That includes all the the new friendships I've made because of this little blog of mine. I know that I always say "Thanks for stopping by", but I want you to know just how much I really mean it. I know that there are millions of blogs out there and I am very thankful that you have come by to visit ME!! :)
So THANK YOU from the bottom of my HEART!!!
