Getting it all down

Getting it all down

As I’ve been getting new plants in the garden, I’ve been working on my garden and kitchen notebook. I’ve finally learned the lesson that I need to make notes as I do things, not wait until there’s a backlog, or I’ll never get it done. […]

It’s gonna be Maaaayyyyy!

It’s gonna be Maaaayyyyy!

April was full, busy and fulfilling. My bullet journal and other notebooks were my trusty companions by my side all month, making sure that I stayed on top of almost everything, I’ll be taking it a bit easier in May with fewer daily challenges, but […]

What’s Your Creative Type?

What’s Your Creative Type?

Came across this cool creativity quiz that a friend linked to on Facebook. I don’t do all the crazy online quizzes, but anything related to creativity or personality is always a yes for me. This one is from Adobe, so I think it’s legit, or […]

Two Weeks In

Two Weeks In

Things are flowing in my 100 day project of temporary collages. I am so happy with my work so far. Knowing that none of it is sticking around (literally) is so incredibly freeing. There’s also the fact that I can get my collage done even […]

Tracking a Year of Crafts

Tracking a Year of Crafts

This year, in order to keep better track of my projects (and make sure I complete them!), I am making an individual project page for each thing I tackle. This is especially true of my yarn projects, because I also want to see my progress […]

Keeping on Track With Yarn Projects

Keeping on Track With Yarn Projects

I set a goal of 12 finished yarn projects this year (knitting and crochet), and of course I am using collections in my crafter’s bullet journal to stay on top of them. Looking back now, I don’t think I finished any yarn projects last year, […]

Okay 2019……Let’s Do This

Okay 2019……Let’s Do This

I’ve chosen my word (“disrupt”), my bullet journal is set up thanks to The Bullet Journal Method, and I am already hitting a bunch of goals this month. I tend to ease into a new year, and give myself the entire month of January (and […]
