I don't know about you, but I *need* to make lists. LOL I make a list for everything! Making lists is what I do. I make grocery lists, TO Do lists (I am a SAHM, I list my daily duties LOL), lists of clothes the kids need for the coming season, lists of cards I need to make, lists for over night stays- and you don't even want to see my lists for vacation!!! (Did you notice I said lists yep, more than one!?!) I have needs lists, wants lists, and dreaming lists. I even have a Life list-things I hope to do in my lifetime.LOL
Christmas is the perfect list season!! I made this little list book to help me keep my lists all together, and easy to carry with me.

I used two 4x6 coasters (covered with some DP from my stash) for the covers, and cute white cardstock 1/8" smaller for the pages. The pages where all printed using my Office program. (Oops, I even made a list for my list topics. LOL) The image is from Everyday Events, colored with Prismacolor Pencils and then outlined with Tombow markers. The mat for the image was stamped using the "Noel" stamp from Tag tidbits.

Here is a peek at one of the pages. Because I made it myself, I was able to customize the lists. I included -a wish list for each member of our family, Christmas cards to send, Menu, gifts needed, Ideas, dates, Church/Charity, Shopping, misc. and a couple of blank ones. I also make a checklist, so I would not overlook anyone we want to buy for this year.

The tabs are 1/2" circle punches (I just hand wrote the title on each one) added to make it easy to find each list. I used binder rings, but the Bind-it-all would work too.

I am already thing of making a couple more of these to have on hand. LOL

Let me know what you think.

I am off to work on today's list...........

Until later~

I think they ROCK! I make list after list only to LOSE them. Unfortunately though, as surely as I have a book to put the lists in, I lose it too! :-p

What a cute project!

Sorry I've been MIA in our Sisterhood. Life has been crazy - and this time of year is filled with craft fairs for me. I'm so glad they're done.
