Saturday DIY: Lego Desk

With Kyle’s (the youngest) birthday right around the corner, and him being a HUGE Lego fan, it only makes sense to make him a Lego desk. I’ve seen TONS of pictures, but never any good tutorials, so I enlisted the help of my mom and eventually my stepdad to build him one, and I have to say that I think it turned out pretty darn awesome!

Funny Valentine’s Cards

With Valentine’s day only two weeks away, I’ve gotten very excited about getting all of my gifts and cards made. With the hubs and myself though, it’s all about finding the funny valentine’s cards, and when I look at the store, I feel like they’re all so generic, so I’ve decided this year that I will create my own, and that I would share them with you!

To download any of the funny Valentine’s cards that I’ve created, just click the photos below and they will carry you to the PDF file! 🙂

A Much Better Week!

This week I am much more into the swing of things… I am getting my workout going, and I’ve gotten back into the swing of things with work. Right now, I am just attempting to get myself back organized with my new planner from Stick To Stigu.

I wouldn’t say that I am a completely unorganized person, I actually do fairly well, but since my schedule is so simple, I tend to get a little on the lazy side when it comes to jotting things down in my planner. I mean, should I really mark off 7-3:15 for work everyday… The answer is YES, I should. I should, and I should consult my planner when I make appointments. I have dedicated this week to getting everything marked off in my planner so that I don’t have any mishaps with appointments and I can take less time off work. It works out better, and I am LOVING it. Plus, seeing that my schedule isn’t actually completely free makes me feel a LOT more productive!

Now, I know that a lot of people love their phone calendars, and I do too, but I NEED a paper planner. There is something about actually writing appointments down that helps me to remember them. My planner of choice this year is from StickToStigu. While no planner is perfect, I think this one is pretty close to it. I love the blank pages that it has that have suggestions and exercises for you that spark your creativity, and I love that it has inspirational quotes each week.

I chose a weekly planner this year, so I have to remind myself that the few dislikes that I have are not the fault of the planner, but they are from my habits. I do miss having my daily planner, but I LOVE having my whole week available to see at once. I also like the perforated corners at the bottom of each page for me to rip off once that week has passed, so it makes it easier for me to find my current week in the planner.  The only suggestion that I might have for them is to have time frames listed on the page… But I’m dealing well without it for now. 🙂

If you would like to get your own Stick To Stigu planner, you can do that here.
