What Every Woman Needs...

If you have one of those little "Girl Tool Sets" this post is for you.  You know the little kit that has a hammer, screw drivers, and some other stuff you probably won't ever use.  Let me tell you a secret.  Something that they guys have known for years.  Power tools rock! 

The only thing I use around the house (other than a hammer) is my power screwdriver.  You can buy a set of bits to go with it (you notice that mine is labeled so it doesn't accidently migrat to my husband's shop) and do anything you would normally put on the Honey-Do List.

Here is an example of how this little tool can change your life.  We have a plastic trash can that has no air holes under the handles, and so the trash bags just bubble up when you put trash in.  This is something that drives me nuts, and I tend to put a small hole in the bag so it doesn't do this.

Well... how about making little holes in the side so that the air has a place to go?  No there is a thought, LOL!  So, out comes my screwdriver and bit set.  I put the smallest drill bit on the screwdriver.  And I quickly make little holes in the trash can. 

See how nice this looks?

Now here is why I bring this up now.  Father's Day is just around the corner in June.  Has the man in your life mentioned wanting a power tool?  If so look around for a deal that includes this power screwdriver with the purchase of a power tool.  Then you get the power screwdriver, and the guy can have the power tool!  We got mine last Father's Day from Sears, and it has been worth every penny we didn't spend.

Christmas is coming...

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

Post-it's tabs are super easy to add and move if you need to change where there are placed. I find that after placing them, I may find it easier to see them further over or on the other side of the page. 

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…
