My Pledge for April

I will buy no fabric for the entire month of April.


No yardage, no fat quarters, no remnants.  None.


It is going to be a very long month…


Do you want to take this pledge to?  Do you need to take this pledge even if you don’t ‘want’ too?  Add this button to your sidebar to help you stay strong and resist the fabric temptation bug.

  2. I love your pledge! I just refused to go to the fabric store, myself. I have established a fabric "library" from which to choose. So much to do...so little time.

  4. Gosh you and your readers are brave... I too couldn't take the pledge - more so my husband - he is so into making doll clothes and we only shop clearance and sales and so we don't get fabrics on a drop dime just when we can find it cheap.... OK so I want or hope to read about your withdrawals for this brave pledge of yours... YOU AMAZE ME....

  5. I am already in withdrawals, LOL! I just have to focus on getting done the projects I have lined out already. No need for more fabric... no need... no need, just lots of wanting, LOL!

  8. Technically I could do this....considering all my fabric is purchased as second hand clothing (to be taken apart later).

  10. Hmmm...good luck in your pledge. My pledge for the past year has been to only buy to finish. Today is was 2/3-yard for a binding. I don't feel too bad about that. I will cheer you on, though.

Christmas is coming...

Working through some Christmas items to list on www.SpunkyDiva.com, 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.
