Weekend Whirlwind

We got Ms. Diva moved into her own room on Saturday.  Which involved moving furniture, sorting clothes, and some major baby hopping (as Ms. Hope was very interested in what was going on).  That was quite the project!  Some new paint is still in order, but right now it is a interesting combo of girly pink and camo, LOL:) 

I spent Saturday evening knocking out some sewing projects.  My To-Do List is down from 24 items (in March) to 7 items (before I started adding more).  One project I got done is a Binkie Bag for a boy expected in August.  It was a fairly simple project, and I took pictures throughout so I could post a picture heavy tutorial soon.  A Binkie Bag is a must for any new baby.  After having Ms. Hope's binkie bag for almost two weeks now, I wish I had made one six months ago!  I found an example on Etsy that I based mine off of, but I cannot find the same listing.  I know the person was also a blogger, so if you know who I should be giving credit for this idea, please let me know.

Here is a photo of the finished Binkie Bag.

"K" came over, and we did a couple things for her new work cubicle.  She thinks I should call them Cubicle Crafts, LOL!  The "Bloom where you are planted" stitch-out I posted on the Customized Designs page is to go on the bigger bulletin that she is bringing over to resurface next week or so.  We used crushed velvet to cover the small bulletin board, and covered buttons with a light lime green fabric for the corners.  To attach the buttons, I used my power screwdriver with a small drill bit to create holes to thread the button through, and then knotted the button thread around the crushed velvet fabric gathered in the back.  Hot glue was used to attach the crushed velvet to the back of the bulletin board.  Here are the before and after photos.



I have made progress on repurposing a over used pillow into a decorative pillow for our couch.  This will also have a tutorial (or at least directions on how I created this pillow) posted.  Here is the in progress picture.  I was going to finish it Sunday afternoon, but I rented Shutter Island instead, LOL!

And that is the wrap on what I was able to get done sewing/craft wise this weekend!

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.
