Weekend Wrap - 8/9/2010

This weekend I finally finished a set of coasters for our living room (started probably in Feb or March, LOL).  The design is from GG Embroidery Designs.  As will any new embroidery design or InTheHoop design I purchase I like to make something for my family with it first to try it out.  That way I can learn the ins and outs of the design on something that "doesn't" have to be "perfect".  I used a red star from My Embroidery Haven on the blue star fabric I have used for several couch pillows.

 One of my current research projects is starting The Spunky Diva Etsy shop.  In order to have the inventory needed (and to stock up for my next craft fair), I need to make up 12 new burp clothes each month.  Here is the stack that are ready to have embroidery designs added to them.  Two of these are going to a childhood friend back in Washington State that just had a little boy.  I think I am going to use the two designs that have pictures below.  But... nothing is set in stone until the machine starts sewing!

{The thread colors in these pictures just show contrast, the neat thing about embroidery is that you can easily change thread colors to match the fabric you end up using.}

A project that I have brewing in the back of my mind is turning these two shirts into one.  There have been several projects posted on various link parties that have t-shirt remakes.  I love these shirts, but after going through the dryer they are both a little short to cover my growing pregnant belly.  My thought is to take the lavender shirt and add 6" or 8" to the bottom of the chocolate shirt, and do some sort of Reverse Applique design to fancy up the finished shirt.

And to wrap of my weekend wrap - I received the book Captured by Grace in the mail!!!!  I had a hard time putting it down to do the laundry, LOL!

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.
