50’s Day Fun

This Sunday was 50’s day at church, and with Ms. Diva walking this year she ‘just’ had to have a fun skirt to wear to celebrate the occasion.  I had about half a yard of tan felt in my fabrics to use for the skirt {to go with her brown shoes}.  Not enough for a true, full poodle skirt.  So... I compromised and made an abridged ‘butterfly’ skirt.  I added a shocking hot pink tulle ruffle at the bottom, and tied the pink to the shirt with a quick stitched ‘flower’.  This was tulle I had left over from the TuTu Drive.  She was soooooo cute!  She is just starting to figure out twirling, and...





... she is fascinated with dandelions at the moment.  She loves to pull off the ‘fluff’ and set it free!  See how cute she is?  {Tomorrows post will have pictures of her not-so-cute side and pictures of my outfit to.}

The butterfly design is from Embroidery Garden, and has to be one of my favorite butterfly designs I have found to date!

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.
