An eclectic mix of things for the table-including a printed linen cloth from my great grandmother, a vintage tablecloth and napkins, some newer wine glasses, vintage cut glass water glasses from Aunt Betty along with the carnival glass centerpiece she also had given me, vintage silver that belonged to a dear elderly friend who gave them to me before she passed away.
The reason for my post title? Well, hubby has been battling a nagging cold for the last two weeks and guess what? I began with a bad sore throat Sunday and by this AM I could hardly talk and developed a nasty cough. We did manage to get to an art museum and lunch Sunday but those photos will have to wait for another time. There was NO Black Friday shopping for me-nor cyber Monday shopping either. It was all I could do to post this today along with photos of a DIY planner I made for next year.
Here is the you tube video I used to make my planner:
It's by thefrugalcrafter - Lindsay Weirich. As soon as I came across it I knew I had to make one for myself! I pretty much followed her directions. Here is mine:
My front and back covers. I took two photos of journal pages I had done for the last Summer Of Color Challenges, resized them and printed them to slip into the plastic.
Here's a view showing all the tabs and pages etc:
And here are a few pics of the inside:
This is the first folder which holds my dollar store week at a glance book that I recovered in decorative paper and washi tape.
This is my month at a glance section. Each month was printed from the site recommended in the video.
This is the category I labeled for art projects and ideas. there are two pockets and paper for writing notes. My category dividers were laminated just as Lindsay did and what a difference it makes!
This category is for food-recipes, shopping etc.
And one more:
This category is for Christmas ideas, gifts etc.
I did add a few other categories too. What I SO love about this is that I can change out the covers, book and month pages each year and still have this binder intact with dividers and pockets!! Plus, I did not buy anything outside of the binder itself. Everything else was from my stash!
My question for you is-do you use any type of planners? I have always used several but I love being able to keep just this one for everything.
Linking to my T Stands For Tuesday peeps at Altered Book Lover. I'll be around to visit with lots of tea in tow. Please pardon my coughing :)
