Erin Condren Life Planners: Welcome, Fall, Y'all!

Erin Condren Life Planners:
Welcome, Fall, Y'all!

It IS already that time of year...seasons are changing, Fall has arrived (at a balmy 96° here in Texas). We're not complaining one bit because it usually takes Texas a good while to cool into fall. So we're happy for the calendar change and patiently awaiting that cooler autumn weather we look forward to this time every year!  

There is so much joy, so much memory making to be made from October - January. It really is the most wonderful time of year! So we put our Erin Condren Life Planners & Erin Condren Deluxe Notebooks to work year-round to be as prepared as we can be so that we can get as much enjoyment out of the season as possible!  (that is another blog post coming soon)

To kick off our 2015 Holiday season, how about we take a look at our Welcome Autumn spreads in our ECLPs? We have two weeks each to share, the first week of autumn and this coming week. The first week of autumn images were taken very early in our planning time. Barely any functional stickers in place. Not much written in yet... almost skin and bones. This week's layouts are filled in more but without too much writing because we have a lot of great, exciting stuff happening this week that we can't discuss yet! But the layouts photographed just fine without much info written in for our upcoming week.

We had a blast pulling our scrapbooking materials into the spreads for this week! For the longest time, we tried to really keep the planning supplies separate from the scrapbooking supplies... ...Today...PLANSCRAPAGEDON happened in our creative space, and we BLENDED (great movie, by the way) those supplies to broaden our layout horizons! Oh, geez, how we miss all the scrapbook stores that used to be in business around here!

How are your weekly layouts coming? Are you doing them every week? How many weekly layouts do you prep each week? We each have 4, then I have one more. That's a lot of planning, but, believe me... It's worth it.

With all those Erin Condren Life Planners and Erin Condren Deluxe Notebooks, there have to be some dedicated to the holidays... YOU ARE CORRECT! There most definitely ARE!

This is when things get exciting for us...the holiday season..I made our first holiday season recipe to see if it will make into the 2015 Holiday Baking Gift List.. Pumpkin Cheesecake Snickerdoodles! They're a tasty, cake-like cookie. There are, however, a few tweaks that need to be made prior to them being a definite for that list. Tomorrow we have some dear friends doing a tasting to determine what needs tweaking. We shall see... In the meantime, here's a couple of pics of the prep and end result.

Finally, making her debut appearance in our blog, one of kitties, Princess Tuesday Morning. She is a charming, loving ball of fur who, for some unacceptable reason, deemed it her domain to relax in the midst of our planning space... Who knows what got into her this afternoon, but she wanted to say hello!!
