Five Question Friday, 9/24/2010

Another week has flown by!  It is almost October and time for our trip to visit family and friends in WA State.  I am very excited, but have a lot to get done this next week, not to mention this weekend!  I have been busy with the Etsy store, and have many items just waiting to be listed.  The sun has not been keeping up it's part of the bargain this week, and so I am hoping to get some final item photos and do some major listing before our trip.  Here are just a couple items I am waiting to get the final pictures of before listing at .

If you missed this week's guest post, take a moment and check it out!  Jen's (from Frugal Invitation) post was on how to make the best use of store coupons.  A topic most of us could always use some help with!  I am looking for several guest posts to use over the next month.  If you have a tutorial or how-to post that you would like to have featured here on The Spunky Diva, send me an e-mail at .  I would love to check it out!

I got a rush of inspiration at Thursday's Sewing club.  Plus, I picked up suede for the soles of baby boots, a new-to-me fabric remnant, several spools of thread (in my defense they were 50% off), a new blind-hem foot (after my last one literally fell apart, LOL), etc.  And now I have got a big weekend in store!  I am going to tackle 3 or 4 projects: including my shirt remake, making Ms. Diva a pair of baby boots for the trip to WA, and finally making the butterfly skirt I keep planning.  Plus, I need to finish several gifts to that I want to take and give out on our trip.  Wish me luck, and check back for pictures!

1. If you could speak with a different accent, what would it be (i.e Australian, Scottish)?  I would love to have one of those upper class English accents.  Like how the royalty talks.  Not to thick, but enough to know where I come from.  This coming from one that can't ever understand people with thick accents, LOL!

2. Can you fall asleep anywhere? (i.e floor, couch, deck)  Pretty much.  I love to take a good nap.  However, I have a hard time falling asleep on a plane.

3. Do you use public restrooms? If so, do you sit on the toilet?  I do sit down on the toilet.  Sometimes the toilet has not been the cleanest, so I didn't sit, but for the most part I am a sitter.

4. If you were stuck in an elevator for 24 hours, what celebrity would you most want to be stuck with?  Not sure on this one.  Would love to ask Gordon Ramsey about cooking, but... that would be kinda of a waste since everything he answered would most likely be way over my nonexistent cooking level.

5. Where did you & your significant other go on your 1st date?  To an Apologetix concert.  One of the funnest concerts I have ever been too!

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= }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…
