No Fabric Pledge Update

{To check out the original post, go here.}

So far, so good {of course I haven’t been going to town either, LOL}.  I have not purchased any, zip, nada fabric so far this month.  Even the deals at Stitch Steals have not corrupted me!  And that has been a near thing! 
Did you see this new fabric line from Moda?????

I am in love, but I can wait.  Can’t I?

Okay, now here is the real reason for this post…  Mr. SD has been working on a toddler bed for MS. Diva.  We are using my crib from however-many-years ago to create a daybed type toddler bed with a full railing since Ms. Diva is an ‘active’ sleeper.  Even when I check on her every two hours {depending on Ms. T} she is always in a different corner of the crib.  So… full rails to help her not fall out is a very good idea.

Anyways, back to my dilemma~ Mr. SD would like me to use fabric to cover the bottom rectangle of the bed.  If I ‘had’ to buy fabric {I really think upholstery weight fabric would be a good choice for this type of application} does it void my No Fabric in April Pledge?
What do you think?  Does it void the pledge?  What if it is less than $3 a yard for some really cute home décor fabric?


  1. I think that since it's something that you specifically need, as opposed to buying because you like it, that it shouldn't void your pledge! If it makes you feel better...pick it out and have Mr. SD buy and pay for it. =) Then you're not guilty at all.

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…
