March Felicity Jane Unboxing and Review


Hello Friends.....


It's that time when the Felicity Jane monthly subscription has come in the mail. I am so excited to open it with you and would you believe I didn't even look inside the box yet. So let's jump into this months subscription together.


The presentation on each one of her boxes is just amazing. I love the black and white striped box with the black and white polka dot paper. The black bow ties it together. 



Everything about this box screams Spring and Summer. I plan to sit down and use each one of these to put our recent cruise pictures together. Everything is just so pretty. 


Above in the top three photos, you can see all of the paper that comes in this month's kit. There are three solid colored sheets and each side has a lighter color and then a darker color. The set is just amazing and I walk you through each piece in the video which you can see at the bottom of this post. 


The kit also has several accessories that come in the kit and I can not wait to come up with something fun with these. She has a black style and a wood style. 


The gold foiled letters are very pretty and I know these will be used for the photos I take during our cruise! I am already spelling out many sweet titles. 



Come along now and you can see each piece of this kit. I love the idea of receiving this each month and I just can not wait to put something new together! 
Enjoy the video! 


See you in the next post!

Plan With Me Session With Video Included


Hello Friends......


I am having so much fun working with a planner this year. I love sitting down on Sunday evenings and planning out my week and finding ways to be as creative as possible. This really helps me stay focused during the week and accomplish all of my task and goals that I lay out for myself. 


I can honestly see a huge difference between the weeks when I plan and create a list of what I need and what to accomplish and then what happens when I just go with it and I don't have a laid out plan. I am so much more productive with a laid out plain. 


I have also started laying out weekly goals as you can see here on the side of my week. This week I have 5 goals that I wanted to accomplish. 

1. Drink more water
2. Have quiet time for prayer time and bible study I am working on. 
3. Keep up with my meal plan which has been a huge success. 
4. Continue to clean my home in zones. 
5. Get my steps in! 

By laying them out on the side of my planner it keeps them in front of me every day. This allows me a better opportunity to accomplish them. 


I have also started creating photo sheets to remember special events during the week. This has been an amazing way to unwind but also to keep my memories at my fingertips. This was my first sheet that I have created and I love the way it turned out. 

I am using the paper sets from a subscription with Felicity Jane. Her papers are beautiful and very high quality. Each month I get so excited to see what she will bring out next. 


My new find for the week that I have added are my templates to be able to draw items in my planner. I have all of the details about these in my video which you will see at the end of this post. They have been a lot of fun to play with 



You will have to leave me a comment and let me know if you enjoy having time set aside to plan and organize your week! 


I hope you enjoyed taking a look into my planning session that I had this week! Be sure to follow my blog and Youtube channel so you never miss out!
Come along now and you can see the video of my planning session! Enjoy! 


See you in the next post!

Costco Wire Mesh Basket Made Into a Gift Wrapping Station


Hello Friends......


I have been on the hunt for a way to keep all of my gift wrapping items together and in one place but not take up an entire room. I know we would all love a gift wrapping room in our home but I must admit I am very happy with how this turned out. 

Costco has this amazing mesh drawer organizer at a $38.00 price point which is perfect for a project like this. This would also be great in your pantry, laundry room, or bathroom for extra storage. 


Eddie put this together for me because I will admit that putting items like this together is not something that I enjoy. I love the part that comes next which is organizing it! There is just something that I find so much fun with organizing. 


Eddie said it was very easy to put together. The parts came in the separate bags and labeled which made it very easy and took no time to assemble. 


He was so sweet to take pictures along the way as he put it together. He wanted to make sure that each one of you saw how it looked during the process. I am telling you that he is the most amazing man! 


Here is a look right after he finished. The depth of each drawer is great and really does hold a lot. You could use this for so many different projects and I am very excited to have this one for my ribbon and gift wrapping items. 


As you can see below I put it in place in my guest bedroom closet and I love how organized all of my ribbons are now. I have them in groups to match different holidays and themes. They fit perfectly in each drawer. 



I placed a large Rubbermaid bin behind the drawer to hold my wrapping paper. Now everything is organized and I can go right to what I need when it is time to wrap presents. I can not wait for Christmas to come this year! 


You can see that everything fits neatly in my closet but still leaves plenty of space for my guest. It was very imporatnt to me that I didnt make my guest feel like they were taking up space in my home and this really accomplished that. 


Here is the next best part!!!! I was able to do away with all of these boxes there were holding my ribbons. There were so many boxes that they came to my shoulder. The bad part of this is how much space they took up but also I could never see what I had and which ribbon was in which box. 


Here is a look of each box just before I unpacked them. They took up the entire bed because there were so many. You might be asking why I had so many ribbons but you will soon see with all of my Christmas videos that I love to wrap my presents with ribbon bows instead of store bought bows. I love to give each one of my presents that personal touch! 


Come along now and you can see me put everything together with this awesome new stand! Be sure to subscrine to my Youtube channel so you never miss out! 


See you in the next post!

Felicity Jane London Kit Review




Today on my Youtube channel I shared the release of the Felicity Jane London Kit. I am so excited about using this kit as I make sure I keep photos from special moments in my life. I have found I post so many to Instagram and I keep a copy on my hard drive but I want to make sure I have pictures on hand to pass down to Dallas and Trey so they can hold onto the memories forever. 


I love everything about the Felicity Jane line. I just happened to stumble across the kits one day when I was looking for pretty stationary paper to use for my pictures as a background. The presentation when the kit is delivered is fantastic. The black and white striped box is so cute. My heart just skips a beat when I pull into my driveway and see the box waiting on me. 


Look how cute the polka dot paper is when you open the box. The little black bow is the perfect touch and it feels like Christmas morning opening it! 


I am new to stamp kits and I really like the quality of her stamps. The words fit my lifestyle and are very well made. If you have tips on stamping for someone new like myself I would love to hear them. 


The kit also comes with these cutaway stickers. I am looking forward to putting my cutting skills to the test and following the straight line. My hope is this new project will have the same benefits as the adult coloring books do and I will find it very relaxing. You will have to leave me a comment and tell me if you work on projects like this to destress. 



There are so many cute embellishments in the kit and I can not wait to come up with different designs for each item. 


These small index cards are very cute and my plan is to use my wallet size pictures with these as the background. 


Each paper has two different sides and the top photo is one side and the bottom photo is the back. The papers are just gorgeous. 


You also receive the solid color sets and they have two color sides that pair with the set perfectly. 



I have a great video link here which will let you see each item with a more in person style view. Each piece is very pretty and I can not wait to use them all. 


See you in the next post.

Etsy Planner Sticker Haul Review


Hello Friends.....


This month I purchased some fun new items from Etsy for my planner. I have found that I am really enjoying using a planner and I really like adding a small touch of pretty to it. Etsy is one of my favorite places to shop for items that have that special touch. 


The stickers above are from the shop owner Luckety. You can find her shop here- Luckety Shop

I am using the stickers above for goal tracking which I line up on the side of my Happy Planner. One set is the filled in and the 2nd set is the shadowed which allows me to write in. 

The set above is from her Romance Kate and I love everything about it. I can not wait to use this set this week. 



Above you can see a look at her Valentine set which is perfect for Spring and Summer and not just during the Valentine holiday.  I used them last week and they look amazing. 

The next company I purchased from which you will see in all the photos below is Knockout Print Shop. You can find their link here- Shop


I love everything about the cleaning bottles and I actually use my set to mark the zone I cleaned that day. I will go into more details later about my zone cleaning but it has been a huge help for me to break my house up into zones and clean a little each day instead of trying to take on one major cleaning day. 



I purchased the weights above in hopes that if I bought them I would need to use them! That means planning out days for the gym. Oh how I hope I run out of these stickers soon because that means lots of days working hard to get in shape! 


The cameras are the perfect sticker to help me track my video postings and film days. Tracking video days are must because time can get away from you and before you know it a week has gone by with no new postings. 


The banner flags are perfect for a today list. The idea here is not laying out to many items in a day to do. Keep it simple but productive. 


I love these walking shoes and they really do motivate me to get out and walk. I can not tell you how theroputic walking is for me. I love the health benefits and how it just clears my mind. 




You can see a little look into my planner with out the stickers work so great for me. I love having goals in front of me and knowing what is on my list. 







I also purchased this washi tape from Washi Supply Co and you can find them here- Shop


I love these the stripes and floral print of each one of these and the price is great. The devliery was very fast and I cant wait to order from them again. 


Here's to lots of planning to come our way! 


You can see the complete video of each item with more details below. 


See you in the next post! Be sure to subsrcibe so you never miss out!
