Five Question Friday - 12/3/2010

It is Friday again!  On the one hand I am excited, since I get to go help decorate at Mr. SD's mom's place, but on the other hand I have sew much sewing to get down too!  Mom found several new fabrics for me to make up into Kitchen curtains.  I promised to get them done last weekend, but ended up with a lot of hip pain due to being preggars.  So... I am going to get them done this weekend, and that way she can change out her fun summer kitchen curtain for a wintery snowflake fabric.  I have to admit that the fun summery one is just not cutting it with all the christmas decor in the kitchen/dining room now, LOL!

Here are my 5QF answers.  Remember you can link up too!

1. What's on the top of your holiday wish list and why?  I want everyone to have a good holiday.  You know when everything goes smoothly, or at least no one gets their knickers in a knot when it doesn't go perfectly.  I want to create some fun memories that we can remember forever.  I think that family is what makes the holiday, not the gifts.  {Though of course gifts are always welcome!}
2. What is your favorite Christmas gift from the past?  When Santa gave me one custom riding boot, and my parents gave me the other boot.  Here is a picture of me doing a dressage test on Image wearing those boots several years after that Christmas.
3. If you had life to do over, what would you be when you grow up?  I hope that I would be right where I am now.  I love being a parent, I love being in Texas, and I am very content where I am.  It is funny how we can have such grand plans as teenagers on how we are going to change the world, or make a lasting mark.  But, when the future come we begin to realize that our little corner of the world is right where we are meant to be.  Not that I don't wish that Ms. Diva will grow up and change the world, LOL!

4. When do you put up your tree?  A week or so after Thanksgiving.  We don't have room for our tree (yes, we have a 'fake' tree that lives in a box) right now.  So our tree is being used at my parent's house.  We are going to set it up this weekend.  Another thing to add to this weekend's to-do list, LOL!  It will be fun to see how much a one-year-old Ms. Diva will be.  Last year she slept through everything.

5. What is your favorite Holiday?  Christmas of course!

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.
