Happy New Year and Winter Wonderland Challenge.................

Hi everyone, well Happy New Year to all my blogging buddies!  Let's hope 2014 is a good one for all of us.
Are you making any New Year resolutions?   Apart from doing more exercise my other new year's resolution is to be ready for Christmas earlier.  Although I make Christmas cards most of the year for my DT work for Winter Wonderland I never put inserts in them and I don't decide who they are for until I'm in mad rush to send my cards out. 

So for our challenge at Winter Wonderland this week which is 'Teddy Bears' I decided to make myself a Christmas planner.   I have made little tabs for my planner for my Christmas card list, handmade gifts I want to make, gift ideas, presents wrapped and recipe ideas.  So I'm hoping my planner will help be ready much earlier this year.  I plan to put inserts in all of my Christmas cards, write them out and put them in envelopes with the address written on so that when December arrives all my special cards will be ready!  Well that's the plan, lets see if it will work this year! 

I hope you will come along and join in our challenge.  You don't have to make a Christmas themed card for this challenge but you might want to if you want to join in and make an early start and be ready for Christmas early with me this year!  We also have a wonderful sponsor this week which is 

I would like to enter my planner into the following challenges:
Crafting for all seasons - Anything Christmas but a card
  Bearly Mine - Anything Goes 
Creative Card Crew - Anything Goes
Creative Craft Challenge - Anything Goes
Craft Challenge - Anything Goes

Thanks so much for stopping by.
Hugs Lynsey

P.s I will be back later with some New Year candy for my followers.
