These lists have been so much fun this year!  I've really enjoyed decorating and doodling all of these funky pages as well as doing the lists themselves.  They're not necessarily Christmas/December/Holiday themed but can be interpreted to be.  I'm full of the Christmas Spirit this year and so I am making my lists Christmas Themed as much as possible.

I hope you've enjoyed this first week of lists!  Remember, you can follow me daily on Instagram (@thegypsyowlartco).  See y'all next week for another week's worth of fun lists!

Until then,
