Merry! Merry! 

I just wanted to take a moment to wish you and your families a beautiful holiday. I hope it is filled with love, laughter, fun memories and the magic that children bring to the celebration.

I wanted to also thank you so much from the bottom of my heart for being a reader and friend of Tiny Oranges.

I couldn’t do it without you. I honestly mean that.  My readers are what keep this blog chugging along.

Thank for for taking time out of your busy lives to make us a part of yours. SMOOCH!

I also wanted to send a special thank you to my amazing Tiny Oranges partner, Susanne.

She joined me this past August and has helped me in more ways than I could have ever imagined.

She has given me new inspiration, motivation and continues to awe me with her ability to find the coolest, greatest companies to share with you. Plus, to know her is to love her.

And a most special thank you to my incredible sponsors. The companies on our site truly are the best and brightest family-friendly companies OC has to offer.

They also all happen to be incredibly nice, genuine people to work with. I am so blessed!

I am going to take next week off from posting to hang out and enjoy some time with my family. Mama needs a little Winter Break too! If I can get to a New Year’s Resolution post on Friday, I will, otherwise, you can definitely count on my return on Monday, January 2nd, 2012 and a whole new YEAR of juicy finds!

May your holiday be merry and bright.  And may all your Christmases be….orange!

I Love My Erin Condren Life Planner + Plum District Deal This Week!

see more by

Last time I checked it was still October, but apparently the holidays have arrived early this year, because this Plum District deal this week from Erin Condren personalized stationery is a rockin’ GIFT!

I was planning to do a post anyway about how much I love my Erin Condren life planner and when the gals at Plum District gave me the heads up that they were running  a deal for $25 for $50 worth of Erin Condren stationery products starting today the timing could not have been better!

Click here to buy it (or 3!) Great gifts for the holidays mamas! You want this deal, believe me. And you could get a life planner for the entire year for only $25 with the deal. Can you tell I am excited?!

Since Emma started kindergarten, I feel like our weekly schedule is completely insane. There is SO much to keep track of it’s ridiculous. Carpool schedule, doctors appointments, school volunteer dates, dance class, birthday parties, and the list goes on and ON!

Yes, I have an iPhone and iPad that I cannot live without, but for some reason, when I actually write things down in a real life PEN, I seem to remember it better.  It also makes me feel more organized.

This is the best personal weekly planner out there. First off, you get to look at the cuter than cute Erin design the entire year, but there are also a ton of features you will love.  You can even click here to watch a video on it.

The thing I love the most about this particular planner are the way the days are organized into 3 separate blocks: morning, afternoon and night. It is so great to write in your appointments and reminders in this format because that is how I organize my day in my head. Love, love, love it!

And, Erin Condren also makes a special Teacher’s Lesson Planner which, with today’s deal of $25, would make an AWESOME gift!

On her site you will find the most darling designs for…

* Holiday Photo Cards

*Personal Stationery (my FAVORITE!)

* Gift Labels (also my FAVORITE!)

* Address Labels

*Calendars, Deskpads & Address Books

*iPad Stickers

* And the newly launched iPhone cases yippee!  but please note this is one item NOT included in the Plum District deal!

And just so much more.

So happy shopping mamas!  Have a great week!

Erin Condren Jumbo Calendars

Although I love my iPhone calendar I am still a fan of a super cute wall calendar to hang in my office.  I love to look up and see, right there, all of the events coming up for my family that month.

I have always loved wall calendars.  My mom would get me one for Christmas every single year because I am such a planner and love having my calendar.   So when I found the super cute Erin Condren Jumbo Calendar, it has been my choice three years running. I actually just placed my order for my 2011 cute wall calendar just last week!

Things I love…

This year I got to add this family photo to the bottom so I get to see our little family all the year through!

I love that it is big and has each page personalized with our family name.

It comes with 210 stickers with cute things  like “birthday!” or “hair appt.!” or “baby shower!”

You can opt to have it with plexiglass backing ($40) or without ($32). The plexiglass is great for propping on a cookbook holder and setting on your kitchen counter for easy family reference.  Or you can go without and hang it on the wall.

I also love the family reference page where you can write all sorts of important family info for babysitters or housesitters.

Erin has all sorts of darling personalized calendars to get you organized in the new year…from weekly schedule pads to life planners…you will smile all year round while doing your planning with her cute designs!

Now, go order yours and get ready for 2011 in style!

I can almost taste it –  the start of school! Three weeks from yesterday for us and I am ready! I LOVE the rhythm of the school week, just sort of makes everything feel more “in sync” for me.  But it also makes me feel a little stressed. Life is so busy these days. Activities, play dates, appointments. I thought some of you might be feeling the same way, so I wanted to share some amazingly CUTE, personalized Erin Condren calendars to help you get organized as we head into Fall.  And I have a $50 gift card to Erin Condren to give away to one lucky reader too!! Make sure to read the last paragraph below on how to enter.

Don’t get me wrong, I couldn’t live without my iPhone and it’s calendar, but to me, I just FEEL more organized when I can look at things I have hand-written on a calendar.  It’s weird, because when I write it down {old-school in my very own handwriting} it’s almost like my brain remembers it better!

Right now I am typing this and looking at my Erin Condren Jumbo Calendar that hangs on my wall. My favorite. Big, cute graphics, and says our family name at the top.   My favorite wall calendar ever!   Order now you and you will get the rest of 2010 and all of 2011.   This is a necessity in my home office. Look how cute…

Erin has created a calendar/planner for just about everyone!

Her Daily Life Planners are the perfect planner to throw in your purse or diaper bag. Featuring one week that spans two pages, you can easily flip through to see your week-at-glance and keep your to-dos, appointments and goals easily managed.  And you can put the cute mugs of your kiddos on the cover!!  Love it.  Again, order now and get the rest of 2010 and all of 2011.

So I already have the life planner & jumbo, but it looks like this one is going to be a necessity as well!   Her Weekly Schedule Pad desk calendar allows you to organize week-by-week, then you can tear off the sheet and hang for the entire family to see. Love this idea too!  Going to pick one up for my desk.

So, now is the time to GET ORGANIZED!!!  Daily, weekly, monthly or one of each!  One thing is for sure, with an Erin Condren calendar, she will make your planning HAPPY with her fun, bright, personalized designs.
