Happy Planner Mini Dashboard Layout

Pin It!

This week in my Mini Happy Planner Homebody Dashboard Layout I used the sticker book Year to Shine. With navy blue being my favorite color, I love this sticker book. I don't care for the left side of the dashboard layout, so I used the back side of the daily pages that I purchased in a package. Sometimes I'll cut a piece of scrapbook paper to fit. I got that idea from Heather Kell. It's not one of my favorite spreads, but it's not bad. It's more for decoration since we're just now starting to open things back up due to the virus.

Color Street Mixed Mani - Moon River

Pin It!
Moon River is one of my favorite sets. I tend to like the darker glitters. They seem to go with most anything I'm wearing.  I love using Tiny and Shiny over a solid for an accent color. In this mani I used Himalayan Salt, Tiny and Shiny with Moon River.

Visit my website to purchase these sets and many more.

Due to the Pandemic, nail sets on the website are currently limited due to Color Street having to work half staffed. With the salons being closed, our businesses are booming and they are struggling to keep up.  However they are constantly making changes to get sets into their stylists hands.  They've added extra shifts, purchased additional machines and making it easier for the stylists to order when they have a restock.  This company and their product are absolutely amazing!!  If you have any questions, you can contact me via my website above. 





Happy Planner Classic May Monthly

Pin It!
As with most of us, most, if not all of our plans have been cancelled. I decided to put them in my monthly anyway. I kept the decorating simple. This is in my Classic Squad Plans Happy Planner.  There are several of these stickers I made myself for personal use. 




Missing You Today and Happy Birthday in Heaven stickers are from Gold Paper Prints.

Happy Planner Classic Weekly Spread

Pin It!
This week in my Squad Plans Classic Happy Planner I used stickers from the pastel mega sticker book. For the weekend, I used a long journaling sticker. If you follow my blog, you know I use a lot of functional stickers from sticker shops. I forgot to open it up and take a picture before the pen. I got busy decorating the spread and forgot a few things that had happened through the week, so I put everything inside that journaling sticker. For me, this planner is like a memory planner without pictures. I plan what actually happened for the week. I have a mini that I use for on the go to plan my week.

Handmade Baby Boy Gifts

Pin It!
I have a new grandson due in June. As soon as I found out the gender in December, I started making things. My daughter’s baby shower was supposed to be April 25th, but that has been changed to an online party. I bought 2 plastic tubs, one for handmade items and one for purchased baby gifts. This week I have to purchase another tub for purchased gifts. 😊 With this virus, I do miss baby shopping. I have ordered several things through Kohl’s.

I'm looking forward to his arrival. I'm really hoping that this virus is under control by then so I can be at the hospital when he is born. πŸ‘ΆπŸ»

I love making baby things. I have a local organization that I make things and donate to throughout the year and have for a few years.  Check out my post Quick and Easy Baby Gifts.

I found this pattern on a skein of yarn several years ago. It's really easy. 
It's easy to put down and pick back up later.  The pattern is for single crochet. I did so I did double crochet on this one. 


Receiving blankets - double sided flannel, zigzagged them together. 



Fleece blankets - I rounded the corners, stitched 1" in all the way around, then snipped the fringe all the way around. 

 Mittens

.

Lovely blankets - 12" square, double sided flannel, rounded corners , zig zagged together. 

Rice bags, door latch cover, pee pee teepee 

Washcloths - 7" square - flannel/ terry cloth, rounded corners, zig zagged together. 


Burp cloths

I love this bib pattern. I will be making him more. 

Smaller burp cloths. 


Taggies, pacifier clip and pacifier holder.
