Weekend Wrap - 8/30/2010

I had so much fun this weekend!  Ms. Diva and I spent a lot of time in the pool.  My little bro made it to Texas for a two week vacation.  The music for church service went very smoothly, and we did Amazing Grace/House of the Rising Sun version (I play violin, and hubby plays guitar and sings on the Praise Team).  I got some craft time in, and got both the Book Reviews I had pending posted and turned in (Forgotten and Captured By Grace).  Just in time, since I have three historical fictions on their way from Bethany House Publishers, LOL!  All in all a good weekend.

Now, for the coincidence (God's way of staying anonymous) of the weekend.  My mom and I went to go shopping on Saturday.  I needed to get supplies to make more Stay-Put-Towels, and we stopped at the Super Wal-Mart completely by accident (we did continue on and stop at Hobby Lobby, Sam's Club, and another Wal-Mart).  They didn't have the item I was planning to buy there (of course not, LOL), but I decided to buy some stabilizer there since that Wal-Mart still has a fabric cutting counter.  While waiting for my turn to have the fabric cut, I noticed that the lady in front of me was cutting fabric that I had previously purchased.  Being the ever curious craft I am, I asked what she was using it for.  Turns out that she has an Etsy shop, and makes BooBoo Rice Bags.  We had a great conversation about Etsy, and different issues with having a store on-line through Etsy.  I truly believe that God placed me in that store to have that conversation.  Isn't cool how He can do something that personal for me?  Now, I am just that much closer to taking the plunge and getting an Etsy store open.

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=http://www.YourBlogAddress.com/ }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 …

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…
