Pirate Map Weekly Layout – ‘X’ Marks the Weekend!
We celebrate a random holiday. We started celebrating it before we found out that Krispy Kremes celebrates it too – with free doughnuts. Now we just celebrate more. Pirate costumes and swarthy accents are a staple at our house. I have to admit, the kids have now outgrown their pirate costumes, so we need to get our act together and get new costumes, because… International Talk Like a Pirate Day is September 19! I had to make my week pirate themed in my bullet journal in honor of such a great day. Bring on the silly puns, the tri-corn hats, […]
September Week 1: Autumn Colors and Fall Leaves
Keeping with the monthly theme of “Heck Yes! It’s Fall!” September’s 1st week has an autumn look with the changing colors on the leaves. See the September monthly spread here I knew when drawing this out, that the leaves were small and wouldn’t hold a lot of tasks. Maybe I’ll just take the week off and relax. Probably not, but here in the US, Monday the 4th is a holiday, so I will just take one day instead. I am a ‘sketch it out before painting’ kind of girl. So to create this weekly log, I found a simple leaf […]
Eclipse/Space Layout – Shield Your Eyes!
The Eclipse is Coming! The Eclipse is Coming! Warning: Shield your eyes from what you are about to see or make sure you have the proper viewing spectacles for your eyes. Nevermind, you can look. Monday is the eclipse across North America – and we are very near the total coverage area in the south. We are checking the kids out of school and trekking our way to a better viewing area. Thank goodness we have family in the area and don’t have to find lodging. If I owned a hotel, I would crank up prices because people would pay them […]
Power Word Art
If you don’t know by now, I am a font nut. I love finding new fonts of all shapes & sizes. So participating in a lettering challenge affords me the opportunity to use a variety of fonts. The @happyletteringchallenge #happyletteringchallenge for July has one word to letter everyday. Today was “Power”. I found a new font called Savaro Typeface on Creative Market that really fit the word ‘power’ in my opinion. Power to me means strength, authority, and confidence. I am not referring to power-hungry people, or those who use power for ill-will. But the power I think of is […]
I’m Not a Bad Mom…But More Gratitude Please
There are days when I feel like I have a giant “annoy mom button” and pushing it is the most tempting thing in the world. My kids (ages 7, 5 and 4 months – but this is about the 7 and 5-year-old), like to tease each other and tattle on each other and do the things that siblings who are 2 1/2 years apart like to do. The problem is, they drag me into the mix! When they are finished annoying each other, they see a new, fresh target and set their sights on easing their boredom by asking me for […]
