Planning for Christmas 2016
In today's video, I show you how I plan for the Christmas season.
After many years of hectic Christmases, I have found that planning and organizing as much as I can makes for a less stressful season and allows me to accomplish much more.
My process is two-fold. First I make a list of everything I need to do and would like to accomplish, including activities with the children. Then I input it into my calendar, everything from the smallest activities (like making hot cocoa), to the biggest ones (like seeing the Nutcracker ballet).
Scheduling the calendar like this gives us all something to look forward to and provides structure. It also helps me to prioritize family time because spending quality time together can often get pushed down the list amidst all of the business.
I hope that you enjoy this week's video! If you would like to see more planning videos from me in the future, please be sure to let me know.
A few things I mention in the video:
Free holiday printables for children from Activity Village. This is a great resource for fun crafts and activities for your kids this holiday season.
My video and blogpost on how to make your own citrus ornaments. These are inexpensive, natural and so fun to make!
Thank you to everyone who tuned in to Nippon TV's The Most Useful School in the World this past Saturday!
If you missed the show, you can watch it here.
The Madame Chic Collection is the perfect gift! Order yours in time for the holidays.
Comment of the Week
Just a big thanks - came across your Ted talk tonight which led to a binge on your YouTube videos - during which my house and closet has been transformed, and my 10 item wardrobe is pretty much figured out. I have a massive pile of clothes to donate tomorrow! Also can't wait to read your book & book recommendations. Thank you, it really is just what I need right now for so many reasons. May God bless and protect you as you continue to inspire people xx
Yvanna, thank you so much for your kind email. I love meeting people who have found me through my TEDx talk. I'm so happy to hear your closet has been transformed! I'm excited for you to go on this journey.
Be sure to check back this Thursday for my annual Daily Connoisseur Gift Guide.
