I’ve got good news and bad news.
I’m a bad-news-first sort of gal so I’m going to give that to you first.
The bad news is that we only have fifty-six days until Christmas.
But the good news is that we have fifty-six whole days until Christmas!
If you’re making handmade gifts for the holidays that’s plenty of time to get some presents knocked out. But one thing I know for sure is that you’re going to need a plan.
And here’s some more good news! Whether you’re knitting up dozens of scarves or crocheting just a toy or two, I have a FREE Handmade Holiday Planner and Calendar for you.

I also love making gift tags and cards for my handmade Christmas presents, but sometimes I’ve got more ideas than I do time. So for this season I’m using these matching printable cards and gift tags.
I designed these so that they were not only adorable but that your recipient will know that the gift was handmade just for him or her.
You’ll find four distinct card designs and matching gift tags and I happen to think they are pretty darn cute, if I do say so myself.

I printed them on 65 lb. cardstock in white and craft brown. Adding a pretty ribbon makes it extra special.
Using a Guillotine Paper Cutter made the job of evenly cutting out the cards easy peasy.
How to Use Your Planner & Calendar
I’m the sort of person who loves to document what I make. I enjoy looking back and remembering the project, what materials I used and who I made it for.
As I was thinking about my own handmade gifts for this holiday season, I realized I wanted a way to get organized as well as remember this time in my life and the people I love.
The handmade holiday organizer is split into three sections:
In the first section you will find handy prompts to help you get clear about what you’re making, who you’re making it for and what materials you will use.
There is also a section for you to write out when you finish the project and when it is given.
There’s something lovely about recording that information to be able to look back on. It can serve as a reminder of this particular holiday season or even a reference for future gift giving.
You can use the prompts listed or go totally rogue and use the planner however you like.
In this section you will find handy little check boxes to record your information. Doesn’t it feel great to check things off?
You will find eight different segments which correspond to the prompts. Or you can use it in any way that works for you.
I designed the planner to be flexible for your specific needs.
The final section is for two calendars, one for November and one for December.
I like writing out the exact dates I will be giving or sending the gifts.
Knowing the deadlines from my local post office is important as well to get those handmade gifts sent in plenty of time for Christmas.
Above all, I hope that you enjoy your FREE planner & calendar as my gift to you. I thank you all so much for spending a bit of your time with me.
This may be one of the most unusual holiday seasons we will experience for quite some time, but I believe we can still make it special.
Whether you’re making dozens of gifts or just one for yourself, I hope this season will bring you and your family blessings and peace.
