Weekend Wrap - 6/8/2010

What a fun weekend! We spent Saturday at Lake Georgetown with our church picnic. Lots of food, lots of fun, and plenty of toddlers running around to keep everyone busy, LOL! There was water skiing, tubing, sea-doo’s, and of course a place to swim. I had more than my share of the M and M cookies I brought (can’t keep my hands off of those things), and some of the best home made potato salad ever!

A milestone I accomplished this weekend was getting the Embird software for my embroidery installed and running. I have been trying out different embroidery programs since the beginning of the year, and decided that this was my favorite of them all hands down. Great price, and does all that I could want at this point! I will be able to post more of the designs that I have available to put on Burp Cloths, Tissue Cozies, and Stay-Put Towels. This also gives me the ability to create a customized design just for you, and then e-mail that design to you for approval before any stitching is ever done! What a time saver!
 I have gotten all of the pennant pieces embroidered, and now need to finish them up by sewing the pieces together and placing them in the correct order on a ribbon. Each of the letters has come out very nicely, and I cannot wait to see the whole banner finished. There are thirteen pennants that will alternate between black and teal. It will make quite the statement at the next craft fair.

I wrapped up reading Water for Elephants, by Sara Gruen. It was a surprisingly fast read, and it has a wonderful ending (in my opinion). There is some explicit content, but you can just skip those pages and not miss anything. Another bit of trivia about this book is that it is currently in filming! I cannot wait to go and see this! Hopefully they will be able to preserve the pageantry and detail that is such a part of Sara’s writing.

While blog hopping recently, I came across this fantastic tip listed on Be Our Best.  Jill has compiled her Top 10 Blogging Tips in one place to help others out there in blogland.  Most of them I had heard of before.  But she had one on her list that I have only seen a couple times in practice, and have not heard a how-to do it before.Number 6: Add a clickable signature to your comments.If you add the following text to the bottom of the comments you leave for other bloggers, whatever text you insert for “Your Text Here” will be clickable.  You have to switch out “{“ and “}” with “<” and “>” then it will work.  Remember to also change the “Your Blog Address” part, LOL! {a href= }YOUR TEXT HERE {/a}Bonus Tip ~ I use Notepad to store all the html codes I use on a regular basis {the direct link code for my signature image, color codes, etc.}.  I added the above code to my Notepad page, edited it with my information, and saved it.  Now all I have to do …

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…
