It is almost the new year and it is time to get organized and set new goals! I spent all morning yesterday purging out my closet!! I was going to do one side, but once I got going I decided to just keep going and get more done! I did all of the hanging clothes and my shoes. I need to do some built-in shelves and the drawers, but I feel like a new woman with a clean closet! :)
Today I am super excited to show you my new 2016 Planner…this is what is going to keep me organized next year! Continue reading
A couple of week ago when I was cleaning and organizing in my scrapbook room, I came across this book that I had put together in 2011. I only completed about 6 months in this book, but it was so fun to look back and see some of the projects that I did and some of the trips that we took and some of the holidays that we celebrated etc.
This month I had in my mind that I wanted to make Lollies for the top of my calendar. I was going to make them out of red, white and blue paper and I was going to spell July across the top. I was all prepared to do this…but that was before my friend told me about a craft sale last week. (The one I posted on facebook) We went together and I got BOXES of pre-made lollies! I was in 7th heaven :)
So who needs to make lollies when you can buy them already made with cute ribbons and beads? I simply added the letters to spell out JULY and added a patriotic sticker to the center of the end lollies, what do you think?
I decided that today I would show you my new favorite find!
My daughter-in-law got me onto this one!
It is a new planner from Erin Condren!
Since Father’s Day is in June, I decided to make a calendar to honor Father’s! I love the mustache craze and thought that it would be fun to incorporate them in my theme for this month! I love how this turned out and the grandkids are having fun with the interactive mustaches!
This month for my calendar, I decided to go with “May Flowers”
I love flowers and I love this saying:
Here are my ideas for my calendar for this month.
Most of these things were just purchased. Not a lot of homemade here this time, but when you can buy cute things that are already made there is no sense in making them, right? I did add my own touch to a couple of the items.
Today I have my calendar ideas for March!
This was kind of a tricky month with both St. Patrick’s Day and Easter, so I just went with a general spring theme for the calendar and then made two printable magnets-one for St. Patrick’s Day and one for Easter! So you get a double bonus this month!
Here is my February Calendar. I had a fun with this one because it is all done in red and pink! Two of my favorite colors!
Here is my January Calendar!
I had so much fun decorating this month! I think because Christmas was over and I am excited to start the new year. I went with the snowflake theme and even though I don’t really like the cold, I love how beautiful everything looks covered in snow. I had one of my grandsons’ in the car with me yesterday and he said, “Look Grandma, everything looks glittery!” And I must agree that it did… the sun was hitting the snow just right and it looked like glitter had fallen right from heaven! So Pretty.
