printable christmas gift list (4)

ho ho ho! one of my favorite things to do each december is to make a christmas gift list (you can find the last two year’s here and here). i find great joy in giving gifts, and making a list of all of them helps me keep organized and focused. it’s also a huge help in keeping all the gift-giving straight. plus, it’s fun to check off those tiny boxes!

printable christmas gift list (2)

i begin each year by jotting down the ideas i have for everyone (in pencil). then, as i purchase (or make) each item, i put a check mark in the box labeled ‘bought’. then, i check them off one more time as i wrap them just to make sure everything arrives and gets put under the tree. i also usually jot down the price next to each item, so i can keep track of what i spend each year!

and because there’s nothing worse than having a loved one find your list, i’ve added an optional ‘side 2′ to the printable. just turn your list over and print page 2 on the back. then, when you fold your list, you’ll have a ‘no peeking’ label on both sides! no more spoiled gifts. no more excuses. :)

i hope this helps keeps your holidays organized! love, bonnie

p.s. if you find your name on this list, don’t worry. it isn’t actually what i’m getting you! wahaha.

hi everyone! i’m pleased to welcome heidi ahmed to our space today. she’s a talented watercolor artist, illustrator and surface pattern designer. we recently got connected through my creativelive course, and i have been blown away by her work (see her pattern collection here!). today, she’s sharing with us some inspiration and a beautiful printable. thank you, heidi!

share something everyday download (3)

Hello! My name is Heidi Ahmed.  I am from Columbus, Ohio and specialize in watercolor illustration & design. I have recently branched my watercolors into surface pattern design after taking Bonnie’s CreativeLive class on Designing Surface Patterns From Scratch. This class was life-changing for me because it exemplified a career path that provided more purpose and opportunities for my art.  In my current work, I had noticed that painting images has its limits.  While I enjoyed the process, I did not find as much fulfillment as I was expecting.  Surface design allows my work to touch people’s lives in a more tangible way.  In addition to the nature of the work, I found myself drawn to the community because they were generous, talented, and encouraging.  

In essence, surface design gave strength to my weaknesses.

During the class, I was inspired not only by Bonnie’s sincerity but also her willingness to teach. I was completely blown away by how genuine she was. One of the concepts from her class which really stuck out to me was the idea to “share something everyday” (inspired by austin kleon). It was clear that Bonnie believed in this idea and demonstrated it in her own life and work.

I was drawn to this concept because it is something I have struggled with since the beginning of my career.  I was afraid to share my work not for fear of people’s critiques but for fear of theft.  Seeing Bonnie’s generosity and confidence, however, inspired me to have courage and share my work. We have to be willing to let our work go and “find its place in the world,” much like a student going to school.

As a reminder to myself of its importance, I wrote out the words “Share Something Everyday” in calligraphic hand and posted it on my wall. I was determined to put this concept into practice for myself! I felt the first step in doing so would be to do just that:  share it!  So I’m sharing it as a free download here.

Lastly, I want to thank Bonnie for the opportunity to share my thoughts. I have grown not just professionally but also personally through her class.  If you are interested in taking her class, it is available on CreativeLive.com.  If you have any thoughts you’d like to share… about sharing… please share them in the comments below!
