I’m literally losing mind. I could have 20 planners and I still probably couldn’t keep up with everything I need to get done these days. I invest a lot of time and money in to my planner supplies (honey, if you’re reading this, planner supplies are actually free) – so I don’t want to use […]

Sometimes, the best gift is letting the recipient select their own gift – I have learned that the hard way more times than I can count. I’m not the best or most thoughtful shopper. Still, I’d like to put a personal touch on gift cards so I’ve already started making up these adorable DIY Christmas […]

by
6 months ago

I’ve spent a lot of money on a lot of hobbies – there was scrapbooking (which wasn’t cheap, even back then) and beading, then there was the burlap phase and a whole lot of crochet. I’m glad I don’t save craft store receipts. My planning hobby is different though. Yes, I spend plenty of cash […]

Through the early stages of my early menopause my number 2 complaint was my sleep patterns. If the hot flashes and night sweats weren’t enough, I’d be awake all night after them staring at the clock, the moonlight through the window shades, the red light on the smoke detector – basically anything my eyes could […]

It’s my birthday week… and you know I wasn’t going to let that slip by without broadcasting it all over my planner (and all over this blog). Yep, I’ll be 37 this week. The only thing keeping me from losing it over turning another year older is remembering how 12 years ago I was given […]

My daughter got a planner, her friends got planners, and I have joined a group that participates in monthly planner supply swapping…and I have an amazing stash of Washi Tape. You’d think having bins of decorative tape would make it easy for me to share, but it’s not that simple when you’ve crossed the line […]

I’ve never printed stickers myself for use with my planner. I know, that’s pretty crazy as in to my planner as I am, but it’s true and now that I’ve confessed it, let just move on. I found a really cool cactus/succulent set for free on Pinterest and you know how much I love succulents […]

Should I tell my friends about gluten free sausage balls? I wondered semi out loud while Gabby and my mom began making them in the kitchen on Sunday morning. I’m not really a food blogger (you’re welcome). But I am a nice person – so I should get a little off topic sometimes and show […]

I love how this little crochet owl mug cozy pattern (hodgepodge pattern, I should say) turned out. I’ve been crocheting a lot lately – I pick up one craft that I like, do it for a few months (just long enough to invest hundreds in materials) and then I decide I like to do something […]
