So this past week was a bit uneventful, it rained most of the week, which I am very thankful for. We need all the rain we can get here in Texas. My Grandkids were here this weekend and we had loads of fun, especially with confetti eggs. I know, most people wait until Easter to place these in the baskets but they love them so much, I let them play anyway. And… I’m Nana and I can get away with it 🙂 They got it EVERYWHERE but know what, they had a blast and I had a vacuum cleaner!
While those two cuties played together, I was busy creating new planning pages for Live.Learn.Kreate on Etsy. I had so many other ideas I wanted to kreate, but with the grand cuties here, I had to limit myself and just write down my ideas for later kreating.
This week started out bumpy. My truck was acting up and I had to put it in the shop for repairs. Luckily, I was able to get a rental and oh my was it a good rental. It was a 2015 Hyundai Sonota. I enjoyed driving it, all the new gadgets and gizmos in the cars today, it made for a very nice ride, don’t get me wrong, but I missed my good old truck after two days. It was nice to have it back again.
This week was Natalie’s 5th Birthday. I so can’t believe she is five already. We were able to spend the day with her and all went to dinner of her choice. She chose IHOP and ordered chocolate pancakes and icecream! What more would you expect from a five year old? 😉
My Brothers typewriter came in the mail today, so excited!!! I can finally type on some of the journal cards I have for my Project Life albums. There is just something about having the words “typed” onto the cards rather than the fancy fonts you can do on a computer printed card. I’ll also be able to type on some of my pages in my planner. I have terrible handwriting [IMO] and it will look much neater in my planner.
Oh, Don’t forget, today was PI day !!!
Have an awesome week, make it fun and learn wonderful things.
I know most bloggers post during the week and save the weekend for family time. I will be posting on Saturdays with a review of the full week. It’s really the only time I will be able to blog. One thing I have learned to do is write a few things here and there that I wish to share and save it as a draft so I can add more in during the week, then I can set it to auto-post on Saturdays so I don’t have to worry about forgetting to post. Works wonders! If I don’t have time to write a post and save it, I do use a Blog Planner that I found, but we’ll get into those fun pages in another week.
This week, an item I ordered came in. Can you say Happy Mail!!! I know, something silly to get excited about but I am a planner / paper addict. This is a cute little Women’s Wallet I ordered off EBay. It was only a $1.11 with no shipping. I wanted a place to store all my store discount cards because I don’t always like to place them all in my regular wallet. This way, I can put them in here and throw it in my purse and have them when the need arises. [and it reminds me of a small little planner 😉 ] Clicking on the picture will take you to this item.
Earlier this week, we were a bit covered in white powder as it snowed in Texas. It didn’t last long but that snow really slows everything down here. Later in the week, we were again covered in white but not powder this time, it was a mix of snow and sleet, so not fun to drive on! It sure does make for some pretty pictures though 🙂
I had said earlier, in a few posts back, that I would let you see my planner and the pages I decided to use. I use the ARC system available from Staples. I’ve used Franklin Covey, DayTimers, FiloFax and I decided that the ARC is just better for me. Once you find which system works for you, then you can go into filling the guts of your planner.
