Hello, My Friends

washi love

Well… hi! It’s been a while, hasn’t it? Not even sure where to begin, but the end of December was kind of crazy with some family health issues (everything is fine!) and the holidays. January has just been a cold, grouchy month. The snow and Arctic temperatures haven’t exactly been inspiring.

I just looked at my SD card and realized that I’ve barely taken any photos since Christmas! I need to remedy that, even if it’s just “day in the life” type of snapshots. 

Also, I’ve started working on some craft projects (including reorganizing my washi tape so I can actually see all of it at once). So I’ll start posting about those. I also wanted to start posting my monthly and weekly planner layouts, and sharing how I use my Erin Condren Life Planner. Decorating my organizer has become a relaxing hobby and there are so many creative people out there who provide inspiration! Fun and functional 🙂

That’s about all for now. I just had to finally write something and then hit the “publish” button. As with anything in life, it seems the longer you go, the harder it is to get back into blogging. So there. That awkward “Hey… how ya been” is over and we can pick up where we left off.

So… what’s new with you?

A Lucky Day

I won!

As I’ve mentioned, the last week or so has been kind of crummy. So when I saw that my new Erin Condren notepads were out for delivery today, that immediately helped me perk up. I needed some colorful, cheery mail! Well, you can only imagine my utter shock when I opened the envelope and pulled out a chocolate bar with a golden ticket!

Erin was running a special promotion — products that shipped between March 1-17 had a chance to win one of 25 gift cards and I was one of the random winners. I would have been thrilled with anything, but it was a $50 gift card! So I am just going to tuck that away and use it toward next year’s Life Planner. That was such a lovely surprise and exactly what I needed after quite a few tough days.

Also exciting: we got our tax refund and I’m purchasing a 50 mm lens for my camera — whee! I am hoping it will not only help improve the photos I post here on my blog, but it will get me excited about photography again. It will arrive at the perfect time, just as bulbs start to spring forth from the ground and things come alive again with spring 🙂

Well, I am off to get the kids settled and in bed. Have a great night!
