Guest DT Tonya Gibbs: Holiday Organization

From Flamingo Scraps: Teresa Collins.Noel Collection
Other Supplies: House of 3 (digital brushes) and Martha Stewart (punches)

My house is like a Merry-Go-Round during the holidays, with cheer competition, football playoffs, decorating, parades, parties, photos, shopping and the list goes on and on. A few years ago I started a holiday planner to help me stay organized. When I got the Noel collection from Flamingo I knew it would be the chosen paper for this album. The paper is very durable and has a watercolor texture to it. Very rich, and the colors are very sophisticated. The album has a simple design, because it needed to hold TONS of information. I have found that it has become my right arm this time of year.

It is very similar to the Ali Edwards 25 days of Christmas, but with a twist. It isn’t something to document the entire 25 days, but it does help document the ciaos that surrounds the holiday season. It has plenty of space for sales fliers, coupons, receipts, calendar entries, schedules, menus, and yes even photos. When the organizer part is done, I will replace some of the pages with photos and keep this as a mini album. The great thing is it helps me organize for the upcoming years as well.
