No Peeking!

I love to make lists! To-Do lists, shopping lists, projects ideas... I make lists for everything!
So, with Christmas coming, I wanted to have a place to jot down all of my lists for gift ideas, sizes, baking to do, and so on. I wanted to keep all of my notes in one place, and it needed to be small enough to tuck into a pocket in my purse where the kiddos wouldn't find it! My solution... one of those mini composition books, and my dollar store sells them in a 3-pack! Bingo! Cheap and easy to dress up! :)

I wanted to color up Mrs. Claus from the Santa and Friends set for the cover. After adding a little bit of Glossy Accents to her glasses, I cut her out, and popped her up in the center. The "No Peeking" sentiment seemed appropriate! :)

I had some scraps left from the cover, so I made a matching pen! I just rolled up a small strip of paper, and inserted it into the barrel of a mini gel pen. 

Now I have a cute little book to keep all of my Christmas plans organized!
That's all from me!
Thanks so much for visiting today!
