I just wanted to post a quick note to say THANK YOU for the response to my free printable below. I’ve been completely shocked at how many times it has been downloaded! I sincerely hope the stickers bring a little bit of light and motivation to your week. I know I love seeing them in my planner! Speaking of which, I need to print out and whip up some more.
Have I mentioned how much I love the Erin Condren Life Planner? I love the flexibility, the SPACE (there’s TONS), the fact that I can look at my entire week and month to see what’s going on, and that I can use STICKERS! The calendar on my iPhone won’t let me use fun stickers and washi tape. Don’t get me wrong, my paper planner can’t send me reminders, but I can live with that. If you take a look every day, you don’t need reminders to pop up. 😉
I use all kinds of stickers and washi in my planner, and I’ve started making my own stickers to fit my needs. I recently went back to school, so I have stickers with my classes and times, as well as “Homework”, “Study”, “Test”, and important dates to remember. More on those later.
I also created fun inspirational stickers to add in, with my favorite quotes and motivational sayings. These are sized perfectly to fit in the weekly view boxes in the Life Planner, and are a great reminder to stay motivated. Some weeks I really need it!
So, since they’ve helped me so much, I decided to offer my Inspirational Sticker Sheet FREE for you to download! All you have to do is download, print, cut, and add adhesive to stick them in your planner. I cut them all apart, then run them through my Xyron sticker maker with repositionable adhesive (just in case I need to move the stickers).

The blog has been a bit dormant for a while, but I’ve decided to go ahead and bring it back to life. Or at least try to. Here’s what’s been happening:
- I’ve discovered the Erin Condren Life Planner. Holy cow, I swear this book has changed my life. If you follow me on Instagram, you may have noticed a few pics here and there. If you don’t follow me on Instagram, you should!
- I started designing my own stickers for the Life Planner to fit my needs, and have started selling those. My Etsy shop
will be open again soon is now open, so be on the lookout for fun planner goodies.
- It’s Girl Scout Cookie Time! My stats have blown through the roof lately because of my free Thank You card download. I have no plans on taking this down any time soon, however, I do offer more fun cookie receipts and other Cookie goodies, so be on the lookout for those this week!
- This past fall, I went back to school. Crazy, I know, but I finally decided that I want to be an RN, so right now I’m working on prerequisites to get into nursing school. Fun, right? Totally.
That’s about it in a nutshell! I’ll try to post new recipes, as I need to refresh my own menus and try new things, and I’ll also post about essential oils, kid stuff, crafty things, “nontraditional student” – as my husband likes to call me – stories, and more.

Now THIS is a steal! Wish.com is offering a $10 gift card, just for signing up! There are tons of fun things you can get for $10 or less, and you’d only have to pay shipping. The only downside I can see so far is that you are ordering directly from sellers in China, so shipping may take a while. I ordered two packs of washi tape (for a total of 20 rolls) and only had to pay $2 for shipping. If it takes a while to get to me, that’s okay, because it was only $2! I’ll update this post when I receive my fun package.
Don’t miss out on this deal. There are craft items, jewelry, apparel, shoes, home decor, craft items like washi tape and punches (above), and so, so much more. Click here to sign up! Wish.com

Yes, it’s Back to School time! School starts for us on Monday, August 4, which seems super-early, but really, it can’t come fast enough in my opinion! But that’s another post.
Back to School time means shopping to get the kids geared up and ready to go – time to replace all the clothes and shoes they outgrew and/or ruined over the summer! Shoes are always the most expensive in our household, as I refuse to buy used shoes for the kids. Clothes, fine. Shoes, no way; they need the support only new shoes, especially sneakers, can offer, in my opinion.
Famous Footwear is currently running their BOGO deal: Buy one pair of shoes, get another pair of equal or lesser value for half price. I love this deal. And, to top it off, if you join their Rewards program, you get a coupon for an ADDITIONAL 20% off! If you don’t want to join, but why wouldn’t you, you can still get a coupon for 15% off. Still a great deal.
I ended up getting a pair of Skechers Light-Up sneakers (they both insisted) for each of the kids for a grand total of $40. TWO pairs of SKECHERS for $40. You can’t beat that. They’re happy, I’m happy.
I’ve always been a paper planner kind of girl. I just love paper. I posted a while back about creating my own blog planner, and I am still excited about that thing (I just need to use it!). In that post I mentioned about creating my own personal daily planner, but that hasn’t happened yet. Then, just recently, I discovered the Erin Condren Life Planners, and I’m kind of obsessed. This planner looks exactly like what I would have created for myself! It’s like it came from my brain, it’s that scary.
It is a little pricey, starting at $50, but there are so many ways to customize the planner to fit your needs. I love looking at how others are using their planners – just search for #erincondren on Instagram or Pinterest, and you’ll see thousands of different ways people are using them. From daily planners, to fitness tracking, to meal planning – so many options. All of the washi tape and cute stickers just make me go ooohh and ahhhh constantly.
In spite of the price, I do plan on buying one very soon. I just can’t resist all of the cuteness! These planners are so pretty and cheerful, how could I not use it?
It would seem I’ve taken a bit of a break from my blog. Oops. I never intended to let it go for this long; it wasn’t a conscious decision, it just sort of happened. Hopefully it won’t happen again!
I’m hoping to get back to it full-swing, or at least part-swing. Recipes and other fun stuff will start making appearances very soon. For now, I just wanted to touch base with whomever might still be out there.
Here’s what I’ve been up to, in a nutshell:
- School, or, medical training – I recently finished classes to become a Phlebotomist, a CNA, and a Patient Care Tech (PCT). Fun times! Hello, career change. More on that later.
- Kids. Enough said. The older one starts 2nd grade in 3 weeks, and the little one starts Kindergarten. *sigh*
- Beach vacation. Can I go back, please?
- Crafty business. It’s been put on hold, for now, but it was keeping me on my toes there for quite a while. It’s nice to have a break from it, but I do miss the little bits of extra money.
So, stay tuned for more of everything, and thanks for sticking with me!
