Five Question Friday, 1/28/2011

Hey Everyone ~

I can't believe Ms. T is already eleven days old!  She is doing very well, and she has her one week/two week old check-up today {I will tweet her new stats when we get out of the Doctor's office}.  Ms. Diva continues to amaze with me with how helpful she is trying to be.  No mean feat for a 15-month-old.  She already has an 'understanding' that Ms. T's binkies are not hers, and is determined that the baby's bottle needs to be held by the person holding the baby.  Otherwise she will hand you the baby's bottle, LOL! 

Having Ms. T at home motivated me to finally get around to redoing the seat cushion for the rocking chair.  A task that had been on my to-do list for waaaaaaay to long.  Here are the results.

I am not terribly thrilled with the finished look, but it is uber comfy.  I used a four inch foam from Joann's {purchased New Year's on sale}, and some micro-suede {also purchased at Joann's during the New Year's sale}.  For the underneath I used some fabric from my stash.  I should have made the side strip of suede longer/deeper, so that you couldn't see the under fabric at all.  So, as much as I hope there isn't a next time... that is what I will do differently next time.

PS - Next week I will start keeping track of my weight loss.  My goal is to be down to 140 pounds by next Christmas {gotta fit into my party dress!}.  My two week check-up from the c-section is on Monday, and I will be posting that weight as part of Tone-It-Up Tuesday/Post-It Note Tuesday.

Now onto the five questions for this Friday ~

1. If you had $1,000 to donate to a charity, which would you choose?  I would donate it to our Church's youth group ministry.  They are always working to take the teens to some really awesome events, but most do not have the financial backing to pay their own way.  They host several fundraisers to help raise funds, and I know that they would spend the $1,000 in a way that will impact the future of these teens.

2. Snow days: Do you welcome them happily or are they a pain in your butt?  I welcome them!  They can be a pain in the butt when I am behind at work already, but they are a welcome break.  Of course, living in Central Texas we don't tend to get them very often, LOL.

3. What talent did you wish you had and why?  I wish I could sing.  I am one of those sitting on my couch watching the 15-year-olds this season on American Idol in awe.  I also love laughing at those that have no business thinking they can sing.  As one who also can't sing... I would never torture you with my singing on national tv.  Truly though, how can some of those people truly think they can sing???  Every season it amazes me, LOL.  PS ~ That Steven dude is really neat, and JLo is too cute!

4. Are you a news, politics or celebrity gossip junkie?  Nope.  Addicted to crafts and blog hopping: yes!

5. What is your favorite "cocktail"? (Are you a beer person, a kiddie cocktail junkie, or perhaps your more the "Cosmo" kind?! Anything flies...doesn't hafta be alcoholic!)  Definitely not a beer person.  But, I normally am okay with anything fruity with rum in it.  {Obviously I drink tons... since I can't even name a cocktail with rum in it, LOL!}

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 …

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…
