What is Rudy Day ? .....

I've always enjoyed Christmas. The decorations, the flurry and, of course, the real meaning but always felt let down on December 26. It was all over in a flash. All the planning and doing was gone in a minute. Finally I found the OC ...not the tv show but the Organized Christmas website which led to the Magical Holiday Home Forum. I don't even know how I found it but I did. And they had this wonderful thing called Rudolph Day....Rudy Day to most of us.....that lets you think, plan, dream about Christmas at least once a month on the 25th. And the best thing was I found more people out there just like me ! Crazy about all things Christmas. Well, almost obsessive. But to my family and friends that think I'm nuts half the time, I just want you to know there is no cure for it so don't try to find one. I wouldn't want the cure if you could find one anyway.

Altered Christmas Notebook

I went shopping at Staples the other day and came across a wonderful new find. They are now carrying eco-friendly notebooks that have plain kraft paper covers. They had spiral notebooks in several sizes, composition books and a few other items. I was so thrilled to find the spiral notebooks that I didn't really check out the others. Just inside the front was a page with pockets. I thought this would be great to carry with me in the car to jot down notes. I'm always seeing a great idea in a store and then totally forgetting the details about it when I get home. This notebook will be great for writing down ideas or recording what I have bought for everyone, including the price and where I bought it. The front pocket page would work well for putting receipts.


It's not a real fancy cover but then I didn't want a lot of embellishment on it. I can see it getting knocked around in the car and having buttons and baubles and bows all over the floor of the car. I'm sure I'll add to it sometime.......I just can't leave well enough alone!
