i made a weekly planner!
here’s what it includes:
2 pages each week with tasks and goals, menu planning, shopping list, spending tracker, exercise tracker, and a journal. each date has appointments and notes. there is also monthly planning with 2 pages per month and each day is lined! it measures 6.5 X 8.
faux calligraphy and type fonts in black and white.
here’s how to put it together:
print on your favorite paper – i used 30lb smooth.
make a cover with scrapbook paper.
then get it spiral bound (usually $2-$5) at your local print shop.
the scrapbook paper i used is from crate paper and then i added a paper doily :)

print out the seed packet from elf on the shelf.
add your sprinkles for the seeds. set out the night before.
wake up and have your child plant the “seeds”
magically the next day there’s candy cane sprouts!
(just little peppermints)
then mini candy canes.
and finally big candy canes have “grown” in your pot :)
yay! happy Christmas to you :)
i picked up a gingerbread village kit with 5 gingerbread houses to decorate. perfect for our family of 5! now we can all decorate each house how we want it and get as creative as we like.
i really enjoyed seeing each family member’s creativity and originality expressed as we shared hot cocoa and Christmas music and the 1 tube of white icing – next year i will pick up extra tubes :)
are you finding time to enjoy the season?

well i love a good idea and i think i have had an epiphany…
no, i’m not going to dye my armpit hair blue! i am not even going to go there… ever. well to each his own – her own, whatever.
i have decided that wednesdays are national mother’s day off.
at least for me anyway.
as a mother of three busy kids who are very active and involved in sports and a husband who travels for work i am finding myself busy 7 days a week with no time to catch my breath. i have two pre-driving teens in two different high schools and a kindergartener at another school – i am behind the wheel about four hours every day including weekends! then at home i am scrambling to “get it all done” which, let’s be honest moms, it never is is it?!! it is never, ever all done, there is always something. so i have declared wednesday my day off.
i will have to hustle a little more on the other days, but i think knowing that that carrot is waiting for me will give me more motivation to hustle. i will still make breakfast, lunch, and dinner, i will still drive my four hours to get everyone everywhere, but between school drop off and pick up i will relax, catch my breath, make time for reading, journaling, praying, riding my bike, dawdling, spending time with friends, wandering… i will stop to smell the roses for goodness sakes! all the things we want to do, but never have the time. when are we going to have the time? we have to make the time. i do better with a plan and structure – so here it is. easy, right? december – the busiest month of them all. i have to start now or i never will and i have a lot done already for Christmas, so i’m going to take the plunge.
i think it will be better for my mental health, my physical wellbeing, and my creativity!
do you have a designated day off? will you join me? is it possible? what do you think?
if you’re not ready i will let you know if it was the worst idea
ever in the history of smart women or not ;)
it will be another reason to love wednesdays!
i can’t wait to see what you’re loving!
i love organizing!
look at these perfect pantries!
12 7 inch containers from ikea totals only $35.88! i am excited to put all my beans, nuts, and sugars into these nifty containers.
