Not yet Thanksgiving but I'm sharing something Christmas anyway.

Don't get upset, it's not yet Thanksgiving, but I'm going to share the dividers I made for my planner today and guess what?  I made them out of Christmas paper!!  Haha!

I'm super excited about the holidays this year and I was wanting to make some new dividers for my planner, so I thought why not combine the two?

I picked up this, Teresa Collins *I think*, 12x12 paper pad at Michaels and I'll be using it for most of my holiday crafting this year.  I used my other dividers as a template and just traced around them with pencil.  Then trimmed them out.

I love opening my planner and seeing this!  Puts a happy holiday smile on my face every time!  Are there any special things you do to put yourself in the holiday spirit?

The other thing I wanted to share with you today is that a couple of weeks ago I won a book from TAMMY !!  I was so excited when I got her email, 1) because I've read these books from the very beginning, 2) because I just went to New Orleans in June (that's the setting of the series) and 3) I found out on Wednesday Mike and I are going to New Orleans in February!!!  There's just something about being in a city and then reading a book about that city, AND THEN going back there!  Love that!

When my book came from Tammy, it didn't include just the book.  She had included a beautiful card AND some scrappy goodies too!

I can't wait to read this newest book in the series!  Thank you SO much Tammy!

Thank you for stopping by today.  I'm looking forward to a great week this week.  Only one and a half days!!  Hoping to be super productive at work and at home :)  Have an awesome Monday!!

I have not been feeling too in the Christmasy mood yet, but now that Thanksgiving is almost here and we have yet another cool front coming, it actually feels like Christmas is around the corner so I need to get in gear! How fun that you are going back to NO LA! That book was meant to be yours! :)
