Hello & Happy Monday

Hello and Happy Monday.  I am going to try and get myself better organized and hopefully post more often.

Part of that is my planner.  I started with one and I didn't think I would ever use more than one, but I am a list maker.  So I am now decorating my weekly page.  It basically tells me what rooms in the house I want to clean on what days and then other projects I want to do.  I usually just write in it, but I am playing around with making stickers so this week, I print out stickers.  I think it came out really well.

Now I just need to decorate my main planner.  I will do it later today.  Off to clean off my desk and call my sister.  Chat with all of you later.

Welcome to the weekend

Hello and how is every one doing?  I have been in the funk lately.  I got a cold and then developed a cough and I really haven't been doing a lot.  Plus I have been reading a really good book.

I finally sat down to decorate my planner for this week.  I am doing Halloween themes all month long except next week.  Next week is my birthday week and I am doing pink and Breast Cancer Awareness.  It should be fun.

On to this week.  I thought I would take some pictures and I decorated.  I am trying to stick to jack-o-lanterns and sweet treats.

I started with the bottom of the page.  I am using the jack-o-lantern washi from the Dollar Store.  I don't have the colors figured out yet but I am thinking mainly black and orange.  We will see when I start adding things.

After that I went to the top of the page.  For the last few weeks, I have been covering up the dates and making my own.  This week, I went with more jack-o-lanterns and then added a black number on the side for the date.  Really really cute.

Now to do the sidebar and the morning, afternoon and night headers.  I always put washi across them.  I don't have a lot of narrow washi so I just cut to the size I want.  I usually leave the leftover washi on my cutting board.  When I picked out the paper for the side, I wanted to see what my stickers were going to look like on it, so I went ahead and added a pumpkin sticker. 

I have recently picked up several set of weather stickers off of Etsy.  The ones I am using today are from The Adorable Elephant.  I put them partly on the washi so that the clouds will show up.  I started writing with the Bic Mark It marker, but it is a thicker than I like, so I changed back to my Paper Mate Flairs.

On to Monday....I am just going to list the stickers I have used for each day
   Washer - KG Planner
   Spray Bottle - The Ninja Planner
   Pumpkin Full Box - The Ninja Planner
   Small Banner - Paws Paper 
   Steps - Sweet Cheeks
   Vacuum - Libbie & Co
   Flowers - Planner Mania
   Black Glitter Dot - Hobby Lobby
   Trash Bag - Planner Mania
   Small Dot - Paws Paper
   Dollar - The Ninja Planner
   Appt Box - MAMBI
   Game Day - Paws Paper
   Book - Burnt Owl Studio 

I am going to need to get some pictures printed out but I usually want and do a month at one time.  The end of the week looks bare, but I left room for two pictures. 

That is about it for now.  I hope you have enjoyed my planner notes.   Chat with you later.

Hello.  I hope everyone is enjoying the weekend.  Now that football season has started, my husband and I usually have a game day plan.  Lots of snacks and football.  However, he is trying to finish a big job up at work, so he will be working until late tonight.  The Alabama game will still be on but not all the normal snacks.

So instead of spending the morning in the kitchen, I am in my craft room.  I am determined to get it cleaned up.  I cleaned off my desk and craft table.  All of the projects are spread all over the floor.  I am going to see how many I can get done today.  Right now, there are 26 projects on the floor.  Let's see how many I can get done today.  Not all of them are craft related.  Some have to do with my computer and work.  There is even a couple of food related projects. 

So I will chat with all of you later.

Planner week August 24th thru 30th

Hello everyone.  I know I still need to post some shots of previous weeks but I thought I would write some thoughts as I was putting the week together.  Usually I do this early, but I was waiting on some stickers and this was just a busy week.

My theme is Elephants.  I am getting ready for the first college football game next week.  So you will see Elephants again.  The colors will be red and gray.  For the first time, I am using some full boxes.  I don't mind white space but I wanted to add the colors.

I made the weather stickers along with the grocery bag and the feet circles.  The feet are bigger then I wanted so when I print more I will size them down.

I am having trouble with my step tracker so I am not keeping my steps every day.  It might be time to look around for a different brand.

I am not using as many sticker from my elephant set as I thought.  The colors are just off.  Maybe later.

My son's room is done in University of Alabama colors and I have this cute little stuffed elephant on his bed.  I just had to include a picture of it on the page.

I like the weekend done in gray but I didn't want it all gray so I went looking through my scrap bag and found some light red paper.  And even though, I would it at the bottom, I added the gray weekend banner on it. 

It just dawned on me that I never finished this post.   Bad me.  And now I am even further behind.  I am going to get my desk cleaned off tonight and tomorrow after running some errands, I will try to get another post together.

Also I started an instagram account.  I am only going to use it for my crafty projects (planner, cards, project life, etc.).  It is psbpreston.  I am just learning the ins and outs so just bear with me.

Happy Weekend

Hello everyone.  I am in the middle of a long weekend full of work.  One more day.  I will be so glad when tomorrow is over.  I am hoping it will be an early day.  Next week is my last week off from school.  School starts back the Tuesday after Labor Day and I will be in the kitchen bright and early to help with breakfast.

Yesterday and today, I got a couple of planner orders in.  This is the first time I have ordered sticker and I was extremely happy.  I didn't order a lot.  I will probably be placing a bigger order this week.  Most of what I got in was theme related.  Elephants and footballs.

Here are quick shots of the stickers

These were from Imagine That by Lori.  You will be seeing both of these alot.  My theme is football next week so I am going to use several then.  The water can was a little big but that is okay, maybe I will get better at watering the flowers.

More footballs.  I thought I would use the game day full blocks for each Saturday. I will be a few weeks short so I will have to do some thing else or order more.  I love the free set of cupcakes.  They will be perfect for birthdays.

This is the last order.  It has elephants in it for this week.  I haven't finished this week because I was waiting on these to come in.  I know the full boxes will be short because I use the Happy Planner but I have a plan for them.

That is it for now.  I am going to try real hard to post some thing next week that doesn't have to do with planners.  Enjoy what is left of the weekend.

More Planner Time

Hello.  Last night after I posted the weekly picture, I decided to play around a little bit.  I made a bunch of stickers for next week and the first week of September.  I have a feeling that the next two weeks will be the same colors.  I am doing elephants next week (which is the mascot for the University of Alabama) and then the first week of September will be football.  I can't wait.  I just love football season.  There will be a football on every week until the season ends.

I also made some weather circles, but I didn't take a picture of them.  I will try and remember to take one next time, I print them.

After work, I will post the other week.  Have a great day.

Happy Saturday

Hello.  I don't know why but it seems like a Sunday instead of Saturday.  I am behind on my planner/memory pages.  I went on vacation to my parent's and when I got home I could find my card.  I have been using the camera on my phone but I just didn't think the planner pages looked right.  I finally found it tonight.

I have one week to show you tonight and then I will have another one tomorrow.  I will have several more once I get some pictures developed.  My pages lately have been a lot of writing but at least one picture per week.  Now that I have my camera back, hopefully I will be taking more.

I have July 6th through 12th to show you tonight.  I went with bright colors with a few ice creams here and there plus a page insert.  I love the flower pot picture.  I need to get a new one since the flowers have grown.  Maybe at the first of September, that way I will have the pictures two months apart.

 That is it for now.  Have a great night.

Happy Planner/Scrapbook

Hello.  I am back again with a couple more pages in my Happy Planner. 

Week of June 22nd - 28th
   I went with a fruit theme.  I thought it would be red, and green.  Super bright.  But when I started putting the pieces together, it ended up pink, red, and minimum of light green.  That is ok, I like how it turned out.

   We have gotten a lot of rain.  Which has made every thing green.  And given me lots of time for reading.  Especially since, I pulled a muscle in my neck.

Week of June 29th - July 5th
   4th of July week....This is one of my favorite weeks.  I just love all of the red, white and blue.  I didn't do as much decorating as I usually do.  The time just snuck up on me.  The theme in my planner was red, white and blue.  I went easy, because I had a lot I could have added.  I love the dashboard, I made and added plus the pinwheels.

   We had a cat show up at the door one night this week.  I really didn't want a pet, but it would not go away and it was so hungry for food and loving.  We ended up taking her end.  She is about a year and so loving.   She will be a happy addition to the family.

I am just a picture short of having the next week done.  I will try to get it done the first of next week.  Unless I find some more pictures to print out.  Plus I want to get this week done earlier.

Well my timer for dinner is going off.  Chat with you later.

I must apologize

Hello and I must apologize.  I can't believe it has been over a year since I have posted anything on the front page.  I will start back posting at least once a week.

My first roses of the season.

I mentioned my planner/scrapbook on the stamping page.  I started it the second week of June.  It won't be any thing exciting.  But I thought it would be fun to scrapbook my way through a year.  It will just be every day things.  (Laundry, Books I am Reading, Weather, Menu and just a few pics and crafts.) 

I will be posting pages here if you are interested.  All the pages in June will be pink.  I am using the new Create 365 by Mambi (Me and My Big Ideas).  The books start in July but I bought the add on pack so I could start it right away.

June 8th-14th
   It was the start of summer vacation so there was lots of reading time and just relaxing and enjoying the time off.  It was great to take a walk and see the flowers blooming.

June 15th- 21nd
  Lots of rain and household chores.  I even made a few things for the page.  A cute little bear, a flip flop and a laundry basket. 

I will be posting the last week of June later in the week.   I have a few pictures to pick up and it will be finished.  I can't wait to work on this weeks.  I am using red, white and blue.  4th of July here we come.

Off to read some more.  Chat with you later in the week.
