Cleaning today

I haven’t posted lately I’ve been spring cleaning. Visiting family and doing OTHER things than videos and updates. I have 3 MUST DO TODAY items every morning on a list.  Just in case I don’t get the other 40 items listed done, I will if all else blows up get 3 major TO DO’s done.  This meathod has worked wonders for me. I keep a blank book journal and I just LIST things. TONS of things that need done or made on pages and pages.  Then when I have a minute I look at my list and pick an item to do.  Of course I get the first 3 MAJOR Items for that day done first. Love how this works keeps me on goal. I’ll have to take a picture of it.

What was my 3 major goals today….

  1. Clean up and Organize Living Room/Dinning Room area!
  2. Menu Plan and Order the groceries online (costs me $4.95 HOWEVER it saves me a lot of money I don’t pick up random things NOT on my list in the grocery store) Only downside I have is, it has to be paid via credit/debit card, so if you are on the cash envelope system it makes it difficult.
  3. Finish my Craft Project Binder (has been in my chore book for 1 month now! Needs to get DONE so that I can SEE what craft projects need to be done. From quilts, scrapbooking, photo items, layouts, shoots, digital designs, sticker making, organizing, crafting, planner, and much much more….. Should be a big binder and I will go over it after working through the trial period so about 3 months and I’ll do a video review of my Project Binder and chore book.

So.. with that being said I will leave you all with a cute picture of just 2 of the 7 cats we have, the two pictured are rescues.

Looking into the Studio…

We bought our “Forever Home” in Oct of 2017 on a golf course in Elizabethtown, KY.  My creative place is just now taking shape as I’m unpacking boxes still.  It’s been a long journey to get here and will take several more months ahead to unpack and organize my craft space.  I will also be listing items for sale as I unpack my studio.  If you want to see what I’m selling please follow The Vintage Mint on Facebook, I will be listing items on the page as I go through boxes.

I’m excited to get everything in it’s spot so I can create!  I do a little of everything, that’s why I just say the Jack of all trades.  I think knitting is the only craft I haven’t tried yet.

Below is the links to find me on Social Media, join in the fun and the fails. <– because there will be fails. So lets laugh together and create together.

Have Fun and don’t forget to Follow me!

Valentine’s Planner Layout

Using Hobby Lobby sticker sheet and coordinating washi tapes and MAMBI (Me and My Big Ideas) Big planner stickers.

When I saw these stickers at Hobby Lobby I didn’t buy them the first four times, because I really didn’t think I could use them with the BIG Happy Planner.  The size seemed to suggest it would be perfect for the mini planner.  The more I thought about that sheet of stickers the more I knew I wanted to FIT it into my Valentines week planner pages.  I finally broke down and bought them, and I’m so glad I did.  The layout is even better than what I imagined.  So I combined my Hobby Lobby themed stickers with my BIG MAMBI stickers to finish this layout.  As always I used 2 of my favorite matching washi tape a 12mm wide and a 10mm wide for the bottom boarder and the sides. Then I dove in with 4 matching colors of the 5mm wide washi tapes.  Over all I’m extremely please with how well it turned out.  Shows you how you can use those happy planner mini stickers or classic stickers in the Big planner style.

P.S. I made the Account Balance stickers, because I combined my Budget planner with my daily Happy Planner.  I wasn’t pleased this week with the Account Balance stickers so I will revert back to my just 4 slots and one being total spending for that day.  (Apparently I shouldn’t see my balances or I will SPEND them, LOL)
