October Rudolph Day is tomorrow!

What's Rudolph Day? Here is the definition according to Organized Christmas:
A few years ago, members of our Christmas community began to observe "Rudolph Day" on the 25th of each month.
On that day, we take a few moments to plan some simple tasks for the month ahead, in order to get ready for Christmas Day with plenty of time to spare. By starting early--and working a bit at a time on each month's Rudolph Day--it's easy to prepare for Christmas, save money on gifts, and cut holiday stress.
Here's the annual line-up with the sub-theme (if there is one) in parentheses:

January - Tie Up Loose Ends (gather ideas and organize your Christmas notebook)
February - Begin a Holiday Letter
March - Birthday Gift-Buying Strategy (party planning for the holiday season)
April - Plan Holiday Crafts
May - Catalog Shopping Tips
June - Recipe Round Up
July - Choose a Holiday Plan (Christmas in July celebration)
August - Craft Control (thinking ahead to Elf on the Shelf)
September - Prepare for Holiday Gifts and Giving
October - Plan Holiday Meals
November - Write Holiday Letter

The bottom line is...prepare for Christmas by doing something every month and make the 25th of each month a Rudolph Day by doing something Christmasy!

Less than ten weeks to go until Christmas, time to kick up those Christmas plans a notch!  I started to look through my planner yesterday in preparation for working on it tomorrow and surprise, surprise, what did I find?  An unused $25 Barnes and Noble gift card and 80 Forever stamps.  See how important it is to keep up to date with one's planner?

Almost all of my December Daily products have arrived and I'm excited about the Product Play class that will start on November 1.  Check out Ali Edwards' site to learn more.  I am working my way through one of her classes, Hybrid, right now.  It teaches you how to pair digital products with traditional scrapbooking products.

This month's movie is Christmas with the Kranks.

Have a great Rudolph Day!

  1. I write all my R.Day activities in my notebook at the beginning of the year... however I don't always follow through (or at least not always on the 25th) but hey what gets done, gets done and the Christmassy feeling of that day is what counts :)
