ReRUN SUNday: Ghosts of Studio-Sara's {12 Weeks of Christmas} Past

Hello and happy November!  I hope this post finds you well.  Our house is healthy again and we celebrated a fun (albeit, drippy) Halloween.

Now it's time for Catch Up! I owe you a bevy of {12 Weeks of Christmas} posts.  As I was planning the series for this year, I thoroughly enjoyed visiting previous posts.  I promise this isn't a cop-out, but I thought I'd organize the ideas by basic topic so that you can click the link and see what was up in the past few years. I'll be spending A LOT of time stamping in the next week and I'm excited to share what I'll be making.  For today, please enjoy a look back...

Posts about Organizing for the Holidays:

Click {HERE} for a post about prepping for sending your cards, (it is on my To Do List for this week!).

This post {HERE} is about creating a planning journal for the whole holiday season.  While the journal itself is no longer available, the Designer Stickers are still available {HERE}, as are a number of digital downloads from that product suite (search "Season of Style" in the store HERE).

Every year, as I wrap up Halloween, I prepare for the next two months in this manner.  I'd rather savor and enjoy the season and I hate feeling harried.  That's why I wrote {THIS POST}.

One last organizational post to share...  {HERE} is a post about amassing your supplies as card-making draws near.  Doing this now saves me HEAPS of headaches later.

A Coupla Posts about Gifts:

I've got just two more posts to share today (I'll most more again soon).  These were two posts I thought that should be shared sooner, than later.  I've got a number of gifts I'll be starting soon for people like my children's classroom teachers, Sunday School teachers, neighbors, my girlfriends, our postman and UPS driver (he brings a lot of Stampin' Up! goodness to my door), hairdresser, etc.  The sooner we plan and start on these projects, the easier and more fun it is to make them.  Here are some ideas:

{HERE} is a post about how to beautifully present gift cards:
{THIS POST} is about presenting sets of note cards in a jar.  Sweet and simple!

So there's a quick installment of Ghosts of {12 Weeks of Christmas} Past!

I hope your November has gotten off to a good start!
