This was my desk at 8:18am. I was grading the the first stack of journal assignments from my Sociology of the Family class (just over 200 pages of work) and entering comments with every grade. I had "Meet the Press"... Continue reading

My love of croutons developed early on in my childhood. In fact there was one restaurant where my brother, sister and I would simply ask for a bowl of croutons and a side of ranch. I pretty much could do... Continue reading

This weekend I started filling in my weekly calendar for February and decided I need to spend a little time on something cuter than writing down a whole bunch of meetings for school. I cut an 8.75" x 2.5" piece... Continue reading

I think I wrapped this the first week of November or something...Mac had been invited to one of the cheerleader's sweet sixteen. I didn't have much time, but wanted to make her gift look cute, so I skimmed my saved... Continue reading

I managed to catch a cold during the first week of the spring semester and that meant some extra rest in bed this weekend...which gave me too much time to analyze the current state of our bedroom. This time last... Continue reading

Over holiday break the only house "project" I got done was switching the cabinet the leftover containers & lids were stored in. It took 18 or so minutes total. This weekend was part two in this intense project...lid organization. We... Continue reading

Hi Stephanie, No, I'm sorry, I never used a template. I just used a Word document listed each week and then color coded each class before typing in whatever assignment was due. It was a tedious task, but well worth it throughout the semester.

I have no real reason to make new planner dividers almost every year (2013 & 2015), but it's a really good excuse to gather a bunch of patterns together. I love using these adhesive tabs to make the dividers and,... Continue reading

In case you were wondering, I did not find it easy to photograph pieces of hot dogs that simmered forever (or like an hour and a half) in a tomato-ey sweet and savory bourbon sauce. This is the best I... Continue reading

Last Wednesday night I used the cardstock calendar I printed (there's a PDF here) to get all crafty with our schedule this month. It was so much fun to get all "organized". I used quotations since the next day me... Continue reading

It rained and rained between Tuesday and Wednesday. As I looked out the window to the backyard there was this one rose that hung down dripping with raindrops. When it was still there on Thursday morning I grabbed my camera... Continue reading

I needed two different versions of a 2016 calendar for my planner, right? I printed months horizontally on thick cardstock to have at the beginning of weekly pages since I only store one month's worth of weekly pages at a... Continue reading

On Friday morning I finished the very last page and ordered a final batch of sixteen pages from the last month. In the last year I have fallen completely in love with using the Project Life app and gathering together... Continue reading

I started last year around here mentioning that next year would be a big one. Not to be overly dramatic or anything, but this is the year I have thought of for twenty years. "When I'm forty, Mac will be... Continue reading
