Stampin’ Up: Love Today Planner Review

Keep Love on the Schedule – Love Today Planner by Stampin’ Up Review + Giveaway

There are busy days ahead, there is no doubt – the school season has returned. With this new year comes appointments, meetings, carpools, assignments due and somehow finding time for you to breathe.

One of the biggest struggles is keeping all these dates and schedules straight. I have tried to make sticky notes in strategic places that I know I will see. These fall and inevitably end up doing nothing more than assisting me in forgetting the event. I have tried phone reminders but I end up “snoozing” those, and before I know it, I have snoozed through another event. There is one method that helps me keep events and dates in order – a nice planner. I am a simple gal and need a calendar, room to write events and places to put random pieces of paper.

A couple of years ago my favorite planner finally had met it’s fateful end while I was sad, I never anticipated that it would be so difficult to replace. Ever since I had that loss I have been on a search for an adequate replacement. When I saw the new Love Today Planner Kit by Stampin’ Up it was the closest thing to my beloved planner.

Stampin’ Up: Seaside Shore Stamp Set Review

Stampin’ Up: Seaside Shore Clear-Mount Stamp Set Review + Giveaway

A couple of weeks ago I took a walk to the beach, and discovered that it is about 1400 steps from my house. As I took the walk up the hill that leads to the beach, I wondered if I would see any whales, dolphins or sand art. As I crested the peak of the hill, I began to smell the familiar smell of ocean air, and my steps increased. Once I reached the coast, I was met with blue skies, white water and so many surfers surfing.

As I walked home, I was struck by how lucky I was that I am able to witness this beauty with a simple walk. I want to share the sights, sounds and the feeling of the ocean, and the best way is with cards and letters.

It was on that day of 1400 steps that I took the new stamp set Seaside Shore Wood-Mounted Stamp Set by Stampin’ Up to get some pictures of the coast. When I got home, I realized that with this stamps set I could tell the story of my walk.

Stampin’ Up: Birthday Bright Project Kit Review

Stampin’ Up – Birthday Bright Project Kit Review + Giveaway

When I was young I knew my now husband since we were friends and hung around the same social circle. At the time I considered him my best male friend, yet there was one thing about him I did not know – he is from a large family. Now when I say a large family, I am not kidding – just his immediate family of sisters, parents and us there are 13 of us. That is starting from 5 people to 13 now, and this is not uncommon as you dig further into his extended family. The most people in one branch of the not to extended family rings in at 16 people with what started with 6 people.

Since there are so many people, and it seems to be constantly growing, there are many events, birthdays and moments to celebrate. Given the fact that there are so many special occasions, the need for cards is constant and ever-expanding.

The fact is that as much as we want to personally celebrate each individual achievement, birth, wedding, anniversary or seasonal holiday, it is impossible with a family of over 50 people and that is just in town! Card’s are simple easy sentiment’s that can be sent anytime, and for almost any occasion. With a simple card, the recipient knows we are thinking of them even if we can not attend, so when I got the Birthday Bright Project Kit I was able to make some cute cards, and stash them for the celebrations ahead.

Paper Pumpkin: Bunny Buddies – March 2017 Kit Review

Paper Pumpkin – Bunny Buddies – March 2017 Kit Review + Giveaway

One of my favorite things about Spring is not only are the flowers in bloom with crispy air flowing through our lungs, it is the season of bunnies.

About 5 years, I lived on over 2 acres of land in the more rural area of town. One of my favorite things was when Springtime rolled around, and we would see hopping and fluff in our flower beds. I think bunnies are not only adorable, but they are also a wonderful mascot for this time of year.

Since the bunny is the unofficial official mascot, there is not better way to give Spring treats than in the March 2017 Paper Pumpkin kit “Bunny Buddies”.
