Weekend Wrap - 6/21/2010

We had a wonderful Father's Day Weekend.  Somewhat relaxing, good weather, and good cooking!

The Spunky Diva blog received it's first award "Beautiful Blogger"!  Thank you, Joy! 

I made the guy's in the family these M&M Bow-Ties which they all thought were great.  Who doesn't love M&M's?  Many thanks to Alison at Oopsey Daisy for posting this idea, and sharing the pdf of the cards.  It was very helpful late Saturday evening, LOL!

For my hubby, I made some guitar polishing clothes by using soft duster cloths for a dollar at HEB (Texas grocery chain) and using some embroidery to personalize them.  I used two clothes sewn together to create the final cloths to hide the back of the embroidery design, and to make the overall feel of the the cloths thicker.

If I made these over again, I would lay out the two clothes and trim them down to match.  I didn't realize when I started how unevenly cute the fabric was.  I should have trimmed them down to matching sizes before placing the embroidery designs.  Each of these designs was an embroidery design that I customized for Randy.  Here are the steps to make these:
1)  Figure out embroidery design,
2)  Stitch design on cloth,
3)  Place two clothes with right sides together,
4)  Stitch around the outside, leaving a gap to turn it right-side-out,
5)  Turn right-side-out, and then stitch around the outside 1/8" from the edge.
6)  And you are done!

I still have my "Spunky Diva" booth banner looming over my head...  Maybe that will get finished next?


  1. LOVE those M&M Bow ties!! I have to do that next year!

  2. What a fun idea!! I'll have to remember this next year, thanks!

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.
