5QF ~ 4/15/2011

Tax Day!!!!  Mine are going in the mail today.   Are yours already done?  We owed this year, and so waited till the end to send the money in. 

1. What is your favorite sign of spring?  All the flowers and blossoming trees.  We were out playing last night {Ms. Diva was playing, Ms. T and I were supervising}, and it was such a nice evening.  Ms. Diva figured out that the bucket would go on her head like hat.  That was like looking at a picture of my 30-something years ago. 

2. What was your best birthday ever?  Birthday’s have never been that great for me, but… The birthday before Ms. Diva was born my whole family {Grandpa, Parents, and Mr. SD} went in on a camcorder for me.  That was pretty special.

Though I still remember my Grandma bringing me balloons for my sixteenth b-day.  That was super special.

3. What is your favorite dessert?  Anything chocolate!  I also like anything with sugar ~ Strawberry Shortcake, Cake, etc.  Ice cream is also a great dessert.  Ice cream cake is the da’ bomb!

4. What is the best excuse you've ever used to get out of a ticket?  No such luck here.  Never gotten ‘out’ of a ticket.  Therefore I work on not speeding.  Novel idea, huh?

5. Do you wake up before your alarm, with your alarm, or after hitting snooze several times?  Geesh… let’s see I have posted many times about issues with procrastination.  Does that apply to getting up in the morning too?  Yup, I will go with door number three ~ after hitting the snooze several times.
Linking up with:


  1. My husband has already done our taxes. He gets funny about when he does them. He hates waiting until the last minute. I with you on anything chocolate.

  2. Leaving some <3 from 5 ? Friday! New follower! Happy Friday!

  3. Taxes are done long ago - we always have $100 extra taken out of our taxes a month to cover those pay in's - this year was our first year we didn't have to pay and got most of our money back - a mega nice treat. I wake up before the alarm. Love the trees in the spring.
    My Dad was a police officer and the thing he taught me was to be honest and that's the best way to get out of a ticket - in fact most officers will hand out tickets just because people try to talk out of a ticket.
    I don't do desserts as a norm. My best birthday - haven't had it yet but sure am looking forward to it...

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…
