I "love" computers...

Somehow I managed to crash my laptop on Friday.  Then the external drive, where we keep all our files, litterally went up in smoke (luckily no flames)!  What a weekend.  We now have a new computer (Mr. Spunky Diva is very, very happy), and I have been given strict instructions to not apply my electronic curse to this computer. 

This of course happens in the midst of my mad dash to make sure I have plenty of items for the "Pup in the Park" craft show this coming Saturday, in Elgin.  As the old saying goes: "When life gives you lemons, make lemonade".  So, I spent my time this weekend cutting fabric for burp cloths, sewing squares onto towels, and finishing up some UFOs (UnFinished Objects). 

Onto the wonderfully, awesome news:  I won the Ellie Inspired giveaway for the Dancer pattern and fabric I posted about last week.  To say I am excited is an understatement.  Thank you again Laura for this pattern and the fabric.  I cannot wait to make Ms. Hope her first Dancer!

Working through some Christmas items to list on, my Etsy store. I will be taking custom orders through Dec. 1st.  Also, getting back into the swing of things by participating in two craft fairs this holiday season. 

Planner Tabs and Dashboard

Seeing so many different ways to use tabs on the top, sides, and bottoms of their planner has given me ideas. And when you find one way doesn't work great, switch the location until you do find the perfect location for the way you use them. 

After this layout, I moved stuff around....

Now the tabs for project lists, H's B-day, next Christmas are on the bottom of the pages. Nothing blocks the,  since the above layout I also switched the monthly layouts to behind the DISFish weekly pages I use.  The teal/blue month tabs are on the first page of the DISFish which includes that month's information.  The monthly tabs on the side are for the two-page monthly sprees by Daytimer that came with this binder. Helps to see the month laid out in that way when on the phone making appo…

Planner Sections

Order in my Palmer (right now) goes like this...Dashboard, wrapped in two verses printed on card stock, Food tracker, 2016 DIYFish yearly calendar for melds tracking,  Weekly (DIYFish Weekly Project) Monthly two-page layouts, Financial Freedom pages, Fitness pages, Project pages (special event planning pages), Church Team pages. 

I have a steno pad in the back pocket for the ongoing, never ending to-do list and what purchases are needed for those tasks. 
A second stern pad is tucked into the front pocket for me brain dump as I think of things during the day.
