Free Printables,free vintage images-Christmas Planners

Hey everyone, I hope your Thanksgiving was over the top good. I can hardly move....but we are taking it easy today. Half our kids went shopping at midnight...us older kids went to bed! Big smile.

One of my favorite things in the world is to get organized for the Christmas holidays.
Over the last few years I have saved several sites, links, pictures regarding Christmas Planners and organizers.  This is a big post but you can reference it and go to different sites for free printables...Christmas card list, Christmas present printables...where you keep track of all of it in one place...and most of these planners are cute/adorable.
 I took several blank cards and attached them to each other, glued little tabs to make sections...and then...
 decorated the front with letters, ribbons, flowers, and then gave them away to relatives. These were little planners for making notes and carrying in your purse.
"The Lord will watch over your coming and going both now and forevermore." Psalm 121:8

 For myself, I used page protectors to save magazine pictures, recipes, ideas, etc. Then I also used cardstock when I printed off free printables from the various sites below I showed you.

Some of these sites are over the top cute with their designs. You have to decide how far into this you want to go.  I have made a  bigger planner that I can use from year to year and go back to, to see what I gave the year before.

 Below is a free vintage image I printed off from google. and then embellished.

A couple free Vintage Christmas images...
 click on image and then right click to save to your computer. I save images in my picture file-Christmas so I can find them later!

the idea here is to print off what you would really use, put it into a format that you will use.  I actually use notecards in my purse for notes, and gift ideas, etc.  But at home I use my bigger planner to keep track of everything and everyone!
The idea is you don't want to leave out anyone important, my brain isn't the file cabinet it used to be..hahaha...so this is a fun way to remember and keep track of all the Christmas goodness!
