Five Question Friday - 8/20/2010

1. Do you have any nicknames and if so how did it come about?  Not now, but as a kiddo I had the nickname Chip (as in Allen and the Chipmunks).  I had very chubby cheeks,which Ms. Diva has inherited.  I wonder if she will be called Chip at any point, LOL!

2. What is your birth order amongst your siblings?  I am the oldest of my brother and I.

3. In a movie of your life, who would play your significant other?  Do I have to choose?  I would say a younger Robert Redford.  Not for the looks, but because whenever I see him in a movie he always makes me think of Mr. SD in his quiet but sharp way of playing out a character.

4. What is currently your favorite song?  East to West by Casting Crowns.  The link is to a previous post that includes the YouTube video.  This song is a wonderful inspiration of just how much God loves each and everyone of us.

5. Are you saving your money for anything right now? Big or small purchase?  We are saving for a house.  Definitely a big purchase.  We have land in the family that we will build on so we just have to save up for the house.  Besides crafts and babies, I would have to say my third obsession is looking at house floor plans!
I Owe it All to Him's friday question is... Do you collect anything?  To go with the above question we have several floor plan books, but mostly I collect craft stuff.  I have boxes up in the attic (due to no true crafting space in the cottage), and I loathe going up there to find what I need.  But... most of the time I can find it!
I have finished the entire set of burp clothes I started last week (yipee!).  They are in the wash, and I will be taking pics once they get ironed out again.  Four of them are already spoken for as baby gifts, and now I need to get my rear end going on the next twelve.  But first I need to get some fun holiday fabric so I can start stocking up for the three, count 'em three, holiday craft fairs I am doing this November and December.
Linking up with these fun Link Parties:

New Friend Fridays


  1. Hi Kimberlee,
    Thank you so much for linking this up! I know just what you mean about collecting craft items...and it takes up so much space! I admire you for going to the attic to get it...I don't know what I'd do if it wasn't on hand only because I use it every day...(I'm sure you saw my complete "art rehab" in progress.) That was about me trying to make space for it But, there are so many things we can't make unless we own them, so what choice do we have?
    Wow, I am wishing you luck on the fairs you are great! And I hope it is fun and successful for you!

  2. What a wonderful collection, one of my favorite things. I linked up too. Please drop by

  3. I love looking at floor plans too and decorating books!

    You'll have that new home before you know it.

  4. Wow! An impressive goal for the busy holiday time and how fun it all sounds. I'm just starting to think of Fall and making plans for everything from fall activities for my grand kids and me to Autumn songs - real and ones I make up. But Christmas is next in my thoughts, and I'm appreciating the inspiration. Thank you for a delightful visit.

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…
