Weekend Wrap - 7/5/2010

As you can see it has been a slow week for me (or just way to busy with other stuff so far, LOL), and I am just now getting to my weekend wrap for the wonderful Fourth of July weekend.  I am including links to the different crafts I tried out this weekend with pictures from the tutorials (I haven't had a chance to get pictures of my actual pieces yet).  As usual I went for fast crafts that used items I knew I had around the house already (the way to be frugal).

First up:  Butterfly Feeder by Cheap Vegetable Gardner (which I found through Homemade Mamas)

Next: I worked on a quilt top using the Streak of Sunshine directions from and here is the link for Bonnie's Blog.  There are lots of great quilt patterns available, and the website is where you can find Bonnie's guide to organizing quilting scraps!  Very useful info!!!  For my quilt top I used only two fabrics (note to self: if using only two fabrics you don't have to sew the tube, just cute into strips and rotate the strips to alternate the fabrics).  I am using two brown/blue prints similar to this fabric I found at

And my final project this weekend: was making Ms. Hope a Letter Bow Holder.  (more inspiration from Etsy) (and another using scrapbook paper).  I am not finding the original blog post that I "think" I used as my main inspiration (I probably found it through a link party).

One final link for another bow holder tutorial from Ucreate (another totally awesome blog).

Here is a fantastic picture of another bow holder from Joy at Mommas Kinda Crafty.

I promise to post pics of everything in my next weekend wrap, which I also promise will be Monday, Lord willing and the creek don't rise!

I am linking up my Scrunchy Pillow Case Tutorial with:

PonyTails and FishScales

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.
