Blogmas: Christmas Market Trip and Happy Planner Christmas Layout

Hello Friends,

I hope you are doing well. I have been busy getting ready for Christmas, finishing knitting the stockings, knitting gifts, going to the holiday market, and buying gifts. There are only three days left until Christmas now and time is running out to get all the things done. I went to the Toronto Christmas Market in the Distillery District last night with my boyfriend and my family and my sister's fiance. It was so  nice to see all the lights, look around in the stores, and get good food and drink mulled wine. It was my first time drinking mulled wine last night and I really enjoyed it.

There were so many lit up words around the market this year. They had joy, love, and there was also family which were all very popular spots for photos. I saw a big family huddle under the word for a group picture.

I feel so much joy for this time of year and spending time with those I love

All you need is love

Christmas countdown!

 We had such a great time going to the market with my family and having dinner at Mill Street Brewery. We always have such a nice time at the market with so much to see and I enjoyed the Christmas lights most of all this year. I can't wait to go back next year!

I planned out my spread in my Happy Planner for this week and the beginning of next week for the around Christmas and to keep organized with the busy schedules. I was excited to use the Christmas and holiday themed stickers from the seasonal Create 365 Happy Planner sticker pack. The photos below are mostly "before the pen" photos, which means they are photos of the sticker layouts before I write in my plans. I will add the details now that I have finished placing the stickers.

December 19th-20th
As you can see from the photo below, I left the remainder of my Christmas shopping to today. I had been planning on finishing earlier but of course that never happens! I still have one or two gifts to buy tomorrow.

December 21st-24th
I really love all of these stickers, the girl and the dog on the sled sticker is so cute. I love the "have yourself a merry little Christmas" sticker as well.
December 25th-27th
I will be getting a new planner for 2018 and I am looking forward to another year of planning in my Happy Planner. I really had a lot of fun this year using the planner. I love the vertical layout because I like the way I can organize my days using the squares in the planner and plan morning, afternoon and evening. 

Tonight I was working on knitting a gift for my boyfriend and got a lot of it done. I am keeping it a secret on the blog since he reads it. I am excited to share the finished project with you after Christmas and share the pattern I used as well. I hope all of your knitting and crochet projects are coming together nicely too!

  2. I'm glad you are enjoying this time of year so much - too many people just complain all of the time!

    I've never heard of a Happy Planner, but I may have to check that out. Enjoy your Christmas weekend!

    1. Yes very true, I think it is far better to enjoy it while it is here and accept the craziness and find some joy in it! It was a wonderful Christmas this year! Merry Christmas to you!

  3. Wow, you boyfriend reads your blog? I could spill all my husband's secrets (well there's not really many of them) and he'd never know.
    The market looks like so much fun and so festive.
    Your calendar is a work of art. I keep a bullet journal, but it's gotten less artsy over time. Which is fine. It works for me.

    1. Haha yes he started reading it when we first started dating and has been my number one supporter ever since. He is the sweetest. It was a fun Christmas market, we always have a wonderful time! Thank you I really enjoy using my planner and love using the stickers. I did not think I would get into it as much as I have. Merry Christmas!
