It’s the DIY Holiday extravaganza! Are you ready for it? Or are you dreading the busy, hardly keeping up, feeling? Are the DIY plans you had in September barely materializing? What? Is it the beginning of December already? What happened to November?
For many of us DIYers the Christmas DIY list gets longer while our capacity for JOY shrinks. But it doesn’t have to be that way.
How would you like to come through the holiday season feeling accomplished and confident instead of overwhelmed and off track? What if you came to the end of the year feeling capable and satisfied instead of exhausted and disillusioned?
Would you like to find a way to pour all your love into crafting the best gifts for the people you care about and still have time to attend your daughter’s Nutcracker Ballet, participate in the church carol sing, or visit your elderly neighbor?
Don’t despair that you’ll never get your list finished. And don’t grab your credit card and start shopping for substitute gifts, just yet. It’s not too late to Make Christmas like you’d planned.
I’ve created a resource for you that will help you create the best DIY December ever. It will help you ensure that you have time for all the important things that you love about this time of year, and also time for your DIY gift aspirations.
It begins with a plan
So if you are ready to have your best DIY December ever, download this “Planning Your DIY Christmas Without Losing Your Joy” workbook that I created for you to help you beat the overwhelm and create meaningful gifts for your family and friends. In this short workbook I’m going to help you make a plan so that you accomplish what’s important to you and have the joy you deserve this holiday season.
This workbook will help you make a plan for your personal DIY success this holiday season while ensuring you don’t miss the things that bring you JOY and satisfaction.
Is it even possible? Why yes, it is, when you have a plan.
What’s in the “Planning Your DIY Christmas without Losing Your JOY” workbook?
- There’s a blank November and December calendar so you can make your plan putting in the Big Rocks, medium size rocks, and the little rocks so that all the important things are accomplished and you retain your joy and peace of mind. (What’s a rock? It’s all explained in the workbook.)
- There’s a blank gift list for you to write in your DIY plans and I’ve included a spot for the links to the instructions, so you won’t be hunting down a pin or blog page at the last minute. This is going to save you time and make the crafty moments of the season more enjoyable.
- There’s a blank shopping list that you can fill in and record when you’ve ordered or purchased your materials. You won’t be ordering the same materials twice because you forgot where you ordered them from. (Not saying I’ve ever done that or anything…) and when they arrive there’s a spot to record that, too. You won’t be wondering if you are still waiting for a parcel or if you have to find that UPS tracking number again.
- And there’s space for all your notes. You can use this anyway you want, too. This is where you can write down pattern notes, or sizing adjustments. Or anything else you want to remember this holiday season. You can even use it to plan your Christmas dinner if you like.
- There’s also an inspirational list of DIY Projects (with links) to get those creative juices flowing.
- And if you save this year’s workbook, you’ll already have a great start on 2018, with all the thinking done for you.
- The only thing missing is your slow cooker dinner menus to give you more time to craft.
