NOW FOR MY PROJECT AND BLOG CANDY! 

In just a few hours we will be watching the ball drop and saying goodbye to 2012 and hello to 2013!  One of my New Year’s resolutions is REALLY get organized!  I am a organized person, but with a busy schedule of having a three and four year old and as my crafty blog hobby grows, I find that time is NO longer on my side and refining some of my organization IS A MUST!

I since I am now on multiple design teams I really need to keep track of my deadlines.  The system of using my Iphone calendar was working, but just was not feeling right. I tend to be old school with calendars and my schedules, I need to be able to physically write it down and see everything at one glance.  I found this planner calendar in the Target $ bin and decided this would be perfect!  It is portable,  yet big enough for notes and to see it at one glance.

Using paper from a Recollections stack, I covered the planner using an ATG, added some ric-rack, ribbon, and buttons. I inked the edges with Holiday Red from Close to My Heart and used Glue Dots to attach the ribbon and button (the curly ribbon was wrapped around a 1/4 inch dowels using clothespins to fasten each ribbon end and was baked at 200 degrees for 20 minutes).  Using Cricut Craft Room, I cut some vinyl out from Expressionsvinyl.com using the Storybook font. Then I added it to the planner using transfer tape.  The colors of the planner match my craft room and I am thrilled I am starting out the New Year already getting a handle on organizing my busy life.

 THE BLOG CANDY!
