My space redo part 1 the planning process

Hi and welcome back to my blog. As always I like to welcome new subscribers as well as thank all my current subscribers. I want to start a series call my space redo. I want to share how I plan my project, the before and after and everything in between.

As I think I mentioned in an earlier blog, I’m a planner girl. I love sitting down usually once a day and plan my todo, schedules and just any little thing I might need to refer to in the future. Toward the end of the year,I start planning how I want to change around areas in my bedroom, bathroom as well as my closet. So I want to share with you my planning process for each area.This book was my Big happy planner. Last year I used it for household planning. Its was left on my desk and I used it to track household schedules, bills and miscellaneous household things. During the year I stop using it because I found it to take up too much space on my desk,I couldn’t use it the way I used my classic planner. So I just put it up. One day I decided I need start planning to reorganize my personal area and was going to just add some projects pages to my classic planner,then I remembered the project pages I had for the big planner,so I brushed off the dust and put it back in commission.

So as you can see it’s a vertical layout. I can just make daily list of what supplies I need to get , what I need to work on this day and even how much money I spend that day for that project. I don’t decorate this planner as I do my classic one. I also use this to start tracking my blog titles and published dates.In the future I will also use this area to track my you tube activities.

Next pages are just some note pages. On these pages I wrote down what project I want to work on, and what changes I want to make and what I need to buy or what I have to make these changes. It’s listed by each area, what changes I want to make and what I need to make it happen.

The last page I use is the project page. On this page I write down each project what I want to do, steps that I need to take to complete the project as well as any notes or research I need to complete this project. Unlike the notes page this page is more detailed oriented. I do add a date to each page I planned the project but don’t put a due date to finish it. It’s something I know has to be done but I don’t want to pressure myself on when it needs to be done.

So that how I plan my project. If you are interested in how each project is progressing, come back to the blogs for updates.

And I will leave you like always

Keep crafting.

My favorite planner pens

As some of you know, I’m like to plan. I’m what the planner community called a planner girl or planner babe. In today’s blog I’m going to share with you the pens I’ve been using (this month). Hi welcome to my blog,and as always if you are a new subscriber welcome and my seasoned subscribers thank you for sticking around.

So today I want to share the pens that I’ve been using this month. As you can see there are only 3 pens but they are in duplicates. So lets begin.

My first favorite pen is from Villabeautifful. These pen are gel ink pens. The point is a 5mm point, and when you write you get that smooth flow. The point don’t have that scratchy feel when you write and it’s a comfortable pen to hold and write with. If anyone is interested in this pen the website is

The next pen I will share is my energetic liquid gel ink pen. This pen is made by the company pentel. This pen also have a 5mm, smooth writing point. This pen is my main go to pen, so not only do I use it when planning,I usually pick it up to take quick notes or write list.This pen I found at Walmart.

These two last pen is what Walgreens sold for Christmas and only referred to them as professional ball point pens. They have a 7mm ballpoint. It’s a standard ballpoint, but what drawn me to them is the Harry Potter characters. The only two characters I could find was Dumbledore and Hermione. I use these pen when I’m writing on my planner stickers because the dry quickly.

So you are probably saying ,Why do you have duplicates? Well let me explain. With the Villabeautifful pens, I like the different color stones she placed in each pen. Even through they look basically the same, each pen has its own”personality “. As for the energel pen, I originally had one in gold(not shown), but when I used up all the ink I couldn’t find a refill. The refill is very hard to find. One day walking through stationary section at Walmart I saw the pen and it came with extra refill. I just brought them so I know I will have a refills on hand because like I mentioned earlier this pen has become my go to pen. The Harry Potter pens was a novelty purchase.

So those are my favorites pen I’m using with my planner this month. If you have any questions or comments please leave them below, and as always

Keep crafting an planning

So whats next

Hi and welcome back to my blog. I would like to welcome all my new subscribers ,as well as thank my subscribers that’s been here with me throughout this process of blogging.

So in my busy life I think I finally figure out a blogging schedule as well as finally getting my YouTube channel up and running. I’ve been trying for awhile to start a you tube channel but I didn’t like my videos during editing so I scrap them. I hope to get a video up ( fingers crossed) by Friday. I will start off fresh with an intro video. As for my blog my problem was I wanted to blog daily, but with my work schedule it’s impossible to complete a crafting project as well as blog about it the same day. So I will have a blog posted twice a week. My blog will be the same, I will share my project as well as my hauls. I will also share purchased item I’m really liking.

So stick around, I have planned so many projects which I will be sharing with you. Also look out for videos,coming soon to YouTube.

So until I return,

Keep crafting.

Small share and Dollar Tree hall

Hi welcome back to my blog. Thank you both new and old subscribers for returning to this wild and crazy ride which is this blog. So today I want to share some news as well as some items I purchase. So before I show you want I purchased I want to tell you about a new job I recently started. So let me start with a back story. As long as I been crafting my two favorite store I like to go to we’re Micheals and Dollar Tree. When I was in New York, I was CEM at Michael’s. When I moved to Florida, I transferred to a Michael’s in Davenport,which turned out to have two issues. Issue #1 I had to take a demotion to certified framer. Issue # 2 it was in a different county and it was hard and expensive to get to. So needless to say I no longer work at Micheals and start working at Walmart. Recently my other favorite store had a hiring event, I applied, and now I work for Dollar Tree. Yes I’m still at Walmart but I added Dollar Tree to the the mix as my secondary job.

So now with the haul. The first thing I will is snacks. Just some gummy candies, and gum. I threw the ice cream in cos I was hungry. I did have pictures but it didn’t come out clear. The item I’m showing now are a couple of elephants. I was always told to keep an elephant on the table with nose pointing toward the door. That suppose to help bring in money. I have some elephants on my refrigerator but I always have to adjust their location. These two will sit on the table by my bedroom door. The last items I will share will be for my Xmas decor. I know Thanksgiving isn’t here yet, but I want to start making my decor so I can display it as soon as the tree goes up. Im planning to get all my Xmas stuff together and take inventory. I planned to make me and my daughter Halloween costumes but time seems to got away from me, so I’m still planning to make them, but just for next Halloween. So that’s all I have to share with you. I will have lots more to share the closer the beginning of the holiday season starts. So before I end this blog. Tell me some things you are doing to in preparation for the upcoming holiday season.

And until next time

Keep crafting.

Where do I begin

Hi and welcome to this blog. For those who are subscribers ,I want to give you a heart felt thanks. Thank you for continuing to be a subscriber even through I haven’t been here. So much is happening in my life that I don’t have time to craft or blog like I use to. I’m so hoping that will change soon. I was even working on a you tube channel. Earlier in the year I recorded a series of videos, but my computer screen broke and I haven’t had the chance to edit those videos. I did do some changes to my bedroom/craft room, but like a woman I’ve change my mind numerous times. So I ask myself now what. I want to continue crafting as well as blogging. I want to continue sharing hauls and creating. I just need time to balance work and me time. I’m so trying to do that. I will try by starting with a weekly blog.

So now I’ve sort explain what’s going on I want to say welcome and stick around for this rollercoaster ride. Now with today’s blog. As you know it’s Fall (even through in Fl it’s still sort of summer)an we have the holidays rushing upon us. So two that is coming up is Halloween and Thanksgiving. So today I want to share a small Dollar Tree haul. As you know I always try to have some seasonal decor, but to be truthful I just kept my spring decor up for the summer. Since the last time I blogged, I did get a sofa and a coffee table. I can’t remember if that something I shared in a blog, but I will have picture later. So I will start at the top. Just stuff I had to get. Nothing craft related.The second is the foam pumpkins from Dollar Tree. I purchase a total of 5 for both Halloween and Fall decor. The next picture is fall flowers that I will be using for my fall decor. Ant last picture is over the door shoe bag. Thinking out of the box ,I will show you how I use it for craft tools storage.There are other item I purchase from Dollar tree for my Halloween decor,but at this time I seriously cannot find the picture I took.

Well I know this has been a long blog, so I will bring it to an end until next time.

And as always keep Crafting

Where have you been

Hi and thanks for sticking around waiting to see if I’m ever coming back. I know its been over a month since I last posted and for that I’m truly sorry. As of this day I’m still trying to figure out some kind of schedule to post. I’ve been working a lot of hours doing other jobs at my location, and when I finally get home I’m wiped out. I still track my hauls,but haven’t had a chance to work on any crafts,but I m hoping in the upcoming week I will be able to share some of the crafts I’m planning. So please giving me just a little more time and I will be back with craft overload. And like always till than

Keep Crafting

Just a quick hello

Hi and welcome back to my blog. I want to thank you for sticking around if you are a long time subscriber,and welcome new subscribers and hope you stick around and see what happens next.

I know its been two weeks since my last blog, and I said I would publish more often,but I need to decide what direction I want to take this blog. I want it to remain a place where I share my crafts, hauls and home decor. I also want to share other things as well. I currently working full time and my hours are all over the place. I’m still planning and working on my crafts,(which I will share)but I seriously need to figure out a schedule where I work on and share my crafts on this blog without putting pressure on myself to share daily. I’m really happy to have as many subscribers as I do and really grateful that you all have remain. I hope you be patient with me and stick around. I’m not leaving my blog and I will continue to work on my crafts as well as share them with you. Along with crafting, I’m planning a You Tube channel. I recorded two videos which are still being editing. I never realized how easy it is to record a video,but the editing takes more time than the actual video. So I hope all is well and I will be back real soon. I will leave you like always ,

Keep Crafting.

Just a woman building her craft empire

Hi and welcome back to my blog. Thanks one and all who have returned and those who are new. Welcome to my wild and crazy world.

I just wanted to come here to say hey, and not to miss a day. I’ve been busy today editing and re-editing my video.I have record this video so many times that I decided to write down what I like about each part and what I don’t like about each part. The conclusion that I came up with is to write script.  I think that if I had a script, my video wouldn’t look like I’m nervous in the camera. I also went to Dollar Tree and picked up one item that I’ve been looking for. I didn’t have enough items to do a haul blog. I have so much plan for my blog and hopefully I will be able to take this blogs and make a video to go with it.So I will bring this late blog to and end and will leave you like always

Keep Crafting

Haul Time

Hi and welcome back to my blog. Its so great to have you here, and thank you for returning.

So today(unlike last week) I have a small haul for you. This items were purchased from Dollar Tree and Walmart.

The first items I will share came from Walmart.The first item is construction glue. I need this because I purchased a chair last year from the Well of Hope thrift store that is need of repair. The back of the chair needs some TLC.

I tried using wood glue but it wont hold,so I think I need to bring out the heavy stuff.The next items is a piece of fabric I want to use to make either pillows for my bed or for the seating I shared last week. Once I make the pillows and decide the best area for them I will share it with you. I purchase the extremely strong fasteners because I have a peg board which I had to use 3m hooks to attach to the wall. For some reason only one of the hooks seems to hold the board and the other one keep falling. So I new to find a solution to keep my peg board on the wall without having to attach it to the wall with nails.

The last items I picked up from Dollar tree. I picked up a couple of bookends and a couple of letter boards.

The bookends I want to use as shelves to hold little items. Thinking out of the box. I will show you how that turned out. I purchase the letter board because I need to it as background for this blog and you tube. I had to purchase two boards to get the amount of letter I need.

Well that’s all I purchased last week. I know not as long or exciting as last week. I will be back with project and hauls and maybe some added surprises so until than,

Keep Crafting
