Happy 2020! On this first day of the New Year, I just wanted to wish you a wonderful start. If today isn't all you thought it would be, don't worry. The sun will rise tomorrow. There are 364 days left in the year. We can restart, reset... begin again. And again. And again. Don't give up on what you want for yourself, and I won't either. We can do this!

Big Hugs & Dreams!

I see you December, but you did SNEAK up on me! I see you, lookin' at me, lookin' at you, looking at me. Ha, ha, ha! There's so much to look forward to this month. And so much that needs to be done! 

Hmnnn...  for starters:
Family Get-Togethers,
Potlucks with Friends,
Christmas Parties,
Holiday Parties,
Work Parties,
Choosing a Christmas Tree... Faux or Natural?
Transporting said Christmas Tree,
Pulling out Christmas Tree Decorations,
Decorating the Christmas Tree,
Buying Christmas Cards*,
Writing Christmas Cards*,
Stamping Christmas Cards*,
Addressing Christmas Cards*,
*The Card-process has several steps you know, 
As does Buying Presents,
Wrapping Presents,
Delivering Presents in Person,
Sending Presents via the Mail...
And I haven't even gotten into food preparation! 

We will get it ALL DONE though. We always do. Our efforts aren't wasted. The love & care we put into the season is what makes it special for everyone.

Whatever you celebrate this time of year...
Merry Christmas!
Happy Holidays!
Happy New Year! 
- in advance -


Hi there! Today I am sharing my planners that cover the days of 11/11 - 11/17 (2019). Shown above are an A5 & a personal size Webster's Pages planner. I'm experimenting using these two sizes to see which one I prefer. 

Days and weeks go by so quickly. I use my planners to keep track of daily tasks, and important events. I decorate my planner pages so that I have something pretty to look at. 

Let's just say that looking at chores listed on a decorated page makes having to do the laundry exciting. Plus, it's just a fun, creative outlet for me. I get to play with pens, glue and stickers just like I did when I was little!

To decorate the A5 planner, I used the Maggie Holmes Heritage Collection*. To decorate the personal size planner, I used the Maggie Holmes sticker book & the Maggie Holmes Heritage Collection*. (Product links listed at end of post*).  

Do you use a planner? If so, do you use just one?

Thank you for stopping by today.

Hope is the thing with feathers
That perches in the soul,
And sings the tune without the words,
And never stops at all...
- Emily Dickinson

This is my first page in my new, Sweet Caroline, "Pocket Traveler" notebook by Webster's Pages. The notebook insert is 3.5" x 5.5" in size. It's a smaller size than I normally use. I bought it to challenge myself to create on a small surface. 

My hand cramped a bit as I was writing out the quote. Ha, ha, ha. I'm sure I'll get used to the size as I create more pages.
Hope you like it!

Thank you for stopping by.
Big Hugs!

Webster's Pages Sweet Caroline 

Here are some new additions to my planner/journal collection. They are from the company, Webster's Pages. The design is called, "Sweet Caroline", and was created by Libby Moore. I think they are pretty charming!

I was drawn to Sweet Caroline's  dreamy, whimsical design, and floral stitching. I purchased the A5 Planner, "Traveler Notebook", and "Pocket Traveler" (pictured above from left to right). I like to challenge myself to work/create with different sized paper. As I start to fill these cuties up, I promise to share some pages with you.

Have you bought anything lately that you love?

Until next time,
