holiday prep 002


• serious ribbon inventory + gathering of little gifts
• review printer's proof of family christmas card + jot addressee list
• create shop goodies that have been swirling in my mind like snowflakes
• hatch plans for holiday outings to discuss with holiday planning committee
• keep super secret list of gift ideas close at all times + listen for subtle hints

Love that! I made my cards for the first time last year and had such a ball doing it. I've got to keep an eye out for a quote to use on this year's.

loving your holiday prep - i actually ordered our holiday cards the other day from Vista Print. i was going to hand-make them all, but decided i wanted to spend my time these next few months doing other things instead - mostly knitting and freaking out about knitting, but still!

it's so nice to be planning ahead this year, and to be able to follow along with you as you plan!

Marta, this is such a wonderful idea, and is one that I have been tossing around in my head for some time.

Only problem is, I don't know of any good printers.

I am based in the UK and simply can't track down a good printer. As all knowing as you seem to be ;) I am sure that you sadly don't have a good recommendation on the tip of your tongue.

So, I was wondering if I could throw myself upon the mercy of your good readers and ask if any of them based in the UK know of a wondrous printer? I'd be ever so grateful!

Love your blog, always a bit of inspiration in some form or another.. You reminded me that I need to start making my gifts now, and to first get to the Thanksgiving project and traditions that I have planned for your early Turkey day with my family.. Thanks for the reminder and inspo!

I second Alfie's comment - those journals/books in that photo look lovely. I want!
