Not being especially gifted in the artistic area, I'm always amazed to see what a talented paper-crafter can do to jazz up a printable form!
Don't believe me? Just check out these Christmas planner forms from the Paper Crafting Obsession blog! Mistress of the digital arts, blogger Tami has taken simple lists and directories to a whole new level--and better still, she's sharing them with you!
One caveat: these printables are offered as image files, not in the more-standard .PDF versions. You'll want to save them to your hard drive (usually, a right-click on the image will let you save them), and open and print them. This also helps Tami stay within her bandwidth budget, so be kind!
