Planner Friday - December

My last design team post of 2014 is now up over on Twine it up with Trendy Twine!

It's nearly here!  Are you ready?  I am ridiculously excited about Christmas and I've had a lot of fun decorating my planner pages this month with Christmassy themes.  I have been so busy getting things ready, I don't think I would have completed it all if I hadn't written it down to keep me on track!

You can read the rest of the post here.

Thanks for stopping by!

My week #50

Hello!  A couple of weeks ago I received a fabulous Toadstool Kit from Lesley, the owner of Annie's Paper Boutique.  She knows I am a little obsessed with these spotty fungi and thought it would be perfect for me, she was right!  It comes with this cute washi tape, a fun pen, a set of three clips, a small purse/pouch and a set of Today's Tasks cards designed by Lesley herself.  These aren't available online yet so this is a sneak peek just for you!    
My lovely surprise from Annie's Paper Boutique

I used the kit for my theme this week and added some Christmassy stickers.  It turned out as one of my favourites weeks!  I felt happy each time I opened my Filofax and everything I had to do felt like less of a chore.

My week in my Filofax #50

For the past few weeks my daughter has been staying behind school for drama club, this week I got to see what they had been up to when I went to see their performance.  I felt so proud of her up on the stage in front of so many people and really enjoyed the show.  All of the children were fantastic, though the funniest part of the night was when a shoe was accidentally kicked into the audience by an enthusiastic young boy showing off his dance skills!

Task list in use

I am waiting for my prize from the Winter Filofax Blogger Challenge to arrive, I was given some money to spend on their website so I ordered a new filo for me and one as a prize for me to give away in January when my blog turns two.  I can't wait to show you them both when they get here! 

Thanks for stopping by!

My week #49

I feel really late posting this on a Wednesday!  I've been tackling all those tasks I have on my Christmas to do list but apart from some wrapping I am pretty much finished now.  I think I can finally relax a little and stopping fretting that I'm not going to get everything done in time.

My week in my Filofax #49

This week I moved back into my Malden, the Patent was too small for all the things I want to carry around with me at the moment.  It's a shame because I love how festive and cheery it looks but I just need bigger rings.  My theme is still Christmassy, of course, and I love the bunting washi tape my friend Kath sent me, it's so sweet!

My week #48

I held on for as long as I could but this week I gave in and went into full on Christmas mode!  The excitement has been bubbling away for a while now and I couldn't resist it any longer.  I moved into my shiny red Patent Filofax and added this cute snowman charm Mrs Brimbles sent me, he has a tiny red bell attached to him so my planner jingles now!  She also sent me these fun stickers.

My week in my Filofax #48

Did you see I launched my latest giveaway this week?  You have until Thursday 4th December at 12pm UK time to enter and I will announce the winners the same day so make sure you check back then!

I'm so sorry I didn't get this giveaway set up earlier, I've been wanting to do it for a while but have been distracted by other things.  Anyway the lovely Anna AKA Mrs Brimbles has given me some cute penguin dashboards to give as prizes and like last time I have added a few bits and pieces I thought you would like.  

I was going to do Christmas themed prizes but I realised by the time I had posted the giveaway, drawn the winners a week later, contacted them and posted the prizes you might not receive them in time.  The penguin dashboard is perfect for winter as well as Christmas so you should get plenty of use out of him!

Mrs Brimbles goodies and some fun things

Supplies for your A5 Filofax

How to enter:
  1. Leave me a comment below saying which size dashboard you would like to win.
  2. Let me know if you follow me by email, Bloglovin' or Google Friend Connect and you will get a second entry into the draw.
  3. Anyone who entered my giveaway for reaching 300 followers on Bloglovin' (and didn't win a prize) will get an extra entry into the draw if they enter this giveaway.

I will number all the personal size entries and use a random number generator to pick a winner and then do the same for the A5 size entries.  This giveaway is international and open to everyone.  

You have until 12pm here in the UK on Thursday 4th December to enter, any entries after this time wont be included in the draws.

Good luck!
