If you’re here I’m guessing you’re either A) not the sort of person who waits until December to even start thinking about Christmas or B) you’re exactly that person but this year you’ve vowed to do things differently and be more organised.
This series of videos has been created specifically with you in mind. Over the coming weeks I’ll be guiding you, step by step, through all the things you need to be thinking about and, week by week, helping you to get them all done. Prepare to have a much less stress filled and much more joy filled Christmas season!
If you don’t stumble across these blogs or videos until into December just start at the beginning, follow them through and catch up as best you can. At the very least you’ll have some ready made lists to start checking off.
