Erin Condren Update

I wanted to give you an update on my Erin Condren Planning.  

I have to say I love it!  And it's been a very easy adjustment.  It took a few weeks to figure out how to use the page layouts, since they are divided into thirds.  But once I did that, things seemed to work  well.  I use the top third of the page, for my  "To Go" section.  The middle page is for my "To Practice" section, and my bottom third is for "personal" stuff.  They are pretty self explainatory, so I won't go into much detail.  But I will say that I have found a lot of functional fun stickers on Etsy.  Both printable, and non printable.  They help alot.  

The other thing that works for me is that every morning and night I look at my planner.  In the morning I look to see what needs to be done.  At night I recap, cross off what was done, and make a list for the next day.  As well as write down in the practice section what I was able to work on.

The bottom phot's are pictures of my dashboard (on the left), and my current cover.  Although I did just order the Halloween cover, it should be here in the next few days.

So that's it in a nutshell.  Hope everyone had a fabulous weekend.  I got some more cards up in my Etsy shop.  Anne's Scrap Corner...go over and take a look if you get a chance!   I'd love to hear what you got done this weekend!    Have a wonderfully creative day!  XO, Annie

Inspiration Quote.

Hi friends,

So sorry I haven't posted much this week.  Crazy busy, and old age made me forget!  Welcome to another weekend!  I found the quote that I thought was most appropriate for crafters.  This I think is sometimes what I loose creativity.....

But not to fear, I've got lots of good stuff bottled up lately.  Lots to do for my Etsy shop this weekend, and maybe, just maybe I might do a scrapbook page.  Something I haven't done since oh, probably April!!!  Fall is definately in the air this weekend, as I woke up and just noticed that the leaves were changing.  I'm not sure when it happened, but it sure is beautiful!!!  Hope you have a wonderful weekend. Ours is busy but lots of fun!  I'm most excited to spend a few hours on Sunday at the Sugarloaf Craft Festival.  Can't wait to see what they have for goodies this year!!!  They n never dissapoint!!!!  Let me know what you're doing this weekend! I'd love to hear from you!  XO, Annie

Journaling through texts

Hi friends!  I hope everyone had a great weekend.  I found this post yesterday about journaling through your text messages.  I thought it was a great fun way to journal, and it was letting you be a little different with your journaling pages, and stepping outside of your box a bit.

Take a minuite to pop over to my Etsy shop.  Lots of new cards up on the site, and I just got my first etsy sale over the weekend!! Super excited, since  just opened the store up in August, and didn't put anything in there really until the end/beginning of September.   Anne's Scrap Corner Etsy Shop

Super busy week this week, and it gets really crazy towards the end of the week when I am making lots of trips down to NDP for their open house, and for a mixer Friday night with one of the boy schools.  I am hoping to post at least one more time on Thursday this week.  As always, please don't hesitate to send me a message if you have any questions.  I love hearing from you!

Organize your Scrapbook Paper

I think this could be my most favorite post to date!!! I am sure by now, you know, (everyone knows) that I tend to have a bit of OCD in me.  I especially love having things organized, our master closet is light to dark, sweaters tri folded and our hangers are all the same, and a quarter inch apart...

I know, I know.  But the OCD'ness comes in quite handy when I am organizing my craft room.  The worst part of my room is my paper.  I will be the first to admit it is not as organized as I like, and I never really know how to make heads or tails out of it.  Should I orgainze by color? catagory? shapes?    I recently found this wonderful tutorial on Pinterest, and think that this will be a big help.  I thought I'd share it, in case any of you are in the same prediciment as me!!

Organizing Scrapbook Paper

I hope everyone is having a wonderful week!  Yesterday was Jay's bday, so we did a little mid week celebrating! I don't think anyone is going to say no to mid week birthday cake!!

 This officially starts our birthday season Jay and his dad's, yesterday, my Mom's next week, my sister in laws at the end of the month, my sister and nephews the first of November, my brother in laws mid November, and Sarah's in December!  So I think that's 8! Phew!  Guess I should start making some birthday cards huh!!!???!!!!

Hope you get to do something creative!!!!!  XO, Annie
