Memorial Weekend Report

I had a big sewing to-do list that I was going to try and get through... but, as we all know: We make plans, and God laughs, LOL!

We had family in town, had great BBQ with Meyer's Sausage (made here in Elgin, Texas), swapped family stories, and had a fun, family weekend.  It was hard to see family go back home.  I feel very blessed to have my Mom and Dad so close by.

As far as sewing goes:
1)  I got my next set of diapers and towels prepped (run through the wash and dryer) and ready to finish.
2)  I continued work on my Pennant Banner for the Spunky Diva craft fair booth.
3)  Finished up a special order for a bath and hand towel set incorporating a flaming skull (a design picture will be posted soon).
4)  Completed a special order for a matching hand and kitchen towel set for a seaside theme make-over. 
So, I got several items off that to-do list!

I also made several fabric and elastic bracelets for both myself and family members.  These are so much fun to wear!  I will have several available at the next craft fair.  They are based on this tutorial for Fabric Bracelets, but with a "few" changes to the basic recipe, LOL!  I will be posting a tutorial on the way I made these bracelets tomorrow (Wed, 6/2/2010) so stay posted!


  1. Your bracelets turned out darling! These are on my "To Do List" for the summer! Thanks for linking @Creative Itch's "Sew Cute Tuesday"!

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…

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.
