What a week this was! We sold our house! It seems like a life time ago now, so much has happened since then! Someday I will be caught up in my planner pages here, I promise! I love the colors of orange and turquoise together! And I really love these... Continue reading

Hello! Thank you so much for stopping by my blog and taking the time to comment. All my paper is 12 x12 scrapbook paper that I cut to size and punch with the Arc hole punch. These sheets are very old from a company called Sassafrasslass. They aren't even in business anymore but there are lots of great paper lines that are just as cute. Check out Echo Park, Studio Calico etc. I am starting a new planner soon as this one is getting really full and I'll be choosing a whole new set of papers. Have fun, the sky is the limit!
This afternoon I completed two pages in my new everyday life smash book. They are both super easy and simple. I chose this photo because the colors went well with the page. The curtain is a vintage lick and stick sticker from the 1960's. The only other things I added... Continue reading

Thank you so much!!!! For stopping by my blog and taking the time to comment! I have a tab punch, that I use to make my own tabs but there are a lot of cure ones you can buy too. To make the arc cute and fun I had to invest in the punch so I could make dividers and add all kind of things to my book. I love the arc as I am left handed and regular ring binders are hard for me to write in, the arc is not. Thank you for your sweet words too! Have fun making your arc a one if a kind planner!
DeeAnn, thank you so much! It is so sweet of you to say! And Misty would be pleases to hear that. She is having a little bit of a hard time not being able to go outside, she cries and paws at the hallway door some days. But for the most part she is settling in. There are a lot less places for her to go (no basement or attached garage) so I worry she's bored. But she spends most her time sleeping so I think she's ok. She gets so much more attention now!
I finally have a few more photos of our place! This time they are from Instagram. First up is a shot of one side of our living room: Two of my favorite things about our new home are the floors (I love how they look plus they are heated!) and... Continue reading

Moving right along, here is a look at my pages for early May. I decorate each side as I go along and never worry about how they will go together as a full week. So far I have always liked the results. It is fun for me to read what... Continue reading

These pages were done with photos from our second time at the beach. This time we went to the south end of Hampton at the state park. Love it so much more. Less people, quieter, there are sand dunes and big rocks. Plus the tide was out, that is my... Continue reading

I just read on another blog that thinking is over rated. Sometimes. This is one of those times. Doing on the other hand is important, get packing girl! Since the moment you decided to move, you were already on your way! Don't worry about the "what if's". Take comfort in knowing your family and home will still be there if you need them but jump in and give this new adventure 100% of your fabulous self!!!

Before we left Iowa I went on an outing with Rina and my parents to a classic car museum. I took loads of photos but because it was low lighting in the building only one of my photos came out. Lucky for me it was my favorite part of the... Continue reading

The Arc books are sold only at Staples. The calendar pages I ordered online from Staples cause they were out of stock in the store. I have the Arc page punch that I use to punch scrapbook paper to add to my planner to make it more fun. Thanks for stopping by my blog, have a wonderful night, Julie
