5QF - 3/11/2011

1. Do you know what your REAL hair color is?  Yes!  After coming out with orange, black, and white after a dye job gone bad... I haven't dyed my hair since.  Something about looking like a clown puts me off home science experiments, LOL!
2. Do you plan ahead for summer, or fly by the seat of your pants?  Well... I work.  If we were looking at taking a trip with the girls when they are older I am sure that we would plan.  But I also hope that we do some fun spur-of-the-moment things as well.
3. What is your favorite meal to cook?  Favorite to cook {and eat!} is spaghetti.  Easy to do, very enjoyable and it always comes with bread!
4. Do you get offended by not receiving thank yous?  You should definitely say thank-you, if you aren't going to write a note.  My $0.02 worth though is that a formal, written thank-you is not required.  But... I am still working on writing thank-yous to family and friends for all the wonderful, thoughtful gifts we received after Ms. T's birth.  {I may not expect to receive them, but my momma trained me to write them, LOL}.
5. How did you meet your best friend?  At church as uneventful as that sounds.

News Update for Ya'all {Texan for everyone}; I set-up a blog { } for my book reviews, and would love to have you as a friend over there too!  Check out the great blog design I downloaded for free from Deluxe Templates.  The graphics were put together by .

Here is a sneak peak of my current project:

What do you think it is going to be?  You get one guess...  a quilt for Ms. Diva!  I am using the Fresh Flowers Jelly Roll from Moda.  I still haven't decided how I am going to back the quilt.  Only the future knows the answer {and God of course}.

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 …

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…
