School is back into full swing as the kiddos completed their first full week and all is well. Obligatory first day of school photo of our little tribe. Mornings are a hustle and bustle. “Wake up!!!” Multiple reminders of what the day holds, reminders to brush teeth and get snacks, breakfast-eating, lunch-making, bag-packing and scurrying out the door to school. And then it is quiet. Just

I stink at balance…but I’m getting better.

Though I hesitate to admit this publicly, most people who know me are probably nodding their heads right now. It’s okay. Yes, I stink at balance. How in the world can I do better? Is it even possible? I know that God has made me perfectly and wonderfully with both my strengths and my weaknesses (Thank you, Holley Gerth for clarifying that in You’re Already

I need to sit down and send some thank you cards this week. This post has me excited about doing just that! Though I’m so behind around here – I actually lost my mind (don’t ask, it’s a common occurrence) and got ahead on a couple of things so I had time to put this post together! LOL! Recently, I had a fun little crafter-noon and

2016 Printable DIY Flip Desk Calendar

IMG_1944

I really can’t have enough calendars – especially if they are pretty and inspiring! I find myself always in need of a month-at-a-glance calendar on my desk that shows just the month/days/dates to help in planning ahead and something easy to flip to later months to check dates too. I created this design inspired by something by Mara Mi I saw years ago – and I’ve

It makes my heart soar to get custom requests for hand-lettering and calligraphy work. What fun it would be to just doodle the days away! There are certain friends and clients that I love working with too! Many times I can sit down and doodle till the cows come home, but I take commissions seriously and I take quite a bit of time planning, designing

I set down to get organized this last week and started putting together a few weeks in my Happy Planner™ – when I kept looking for dates to see when they fell on the calendar, plus, needing a reference for my blank calendar sheets. So…I thought I’d create a quick printable calendar to share!! Just print this file: year at a glance (I’ve included a color version and

Okay, this isn’t a resolution, but something I’m going to try to do in 2016 is snail mail something each week this year. #postandpresent To help organize this challenge and the growing list of birthdays, occasions and events I have to remember, I decided to re-create a DIY date book workshop project I did a few years ago – to keep all of those significant dates close

Plans for the new year, blog action and other musings. Much like y’all, after weeks of the busyness leading up to Christmas day, I finally had a day of rest. Total laziness, rejuvenation, doing whatever I wanted, reading a little, pure nothingness. I got up at 5:30 am, I didn’t want to waste a minute of my lazy, wonderful day. Made the coffee, made the
