The little crafter show: Setting up my mini planner

You know I love my happy planner, customized it to meet my every day needs but it got to heavy to carry around. I kept thinking what do I want to do. I could just make some covers  and have a fitness planner. The problem with that is I worried that I would forget to use it.  I thought I'll just keep it home and write everything on my phone for now but I missing writing stuff down. I also do take notes or make notes for myself so keeping it home was no good either.
     I remember hearing about the mini happy planners and even saw one that I liked. At the time thought one would be enough for me, boy was I wrong. So I headed to my Michaels and hoped for the best that it will still be there and it was. I was also able to find a few other items to customize it as well. Once at home I  started to put it together, no dice because the binder rings  were to small. Hoped online to fix the problem, shopping at the me and my big ideas or MABI and Blitsy.com sites. So that is the back sto…

So before I start an update on al cricut sale will be ending soon so head on over to my website  for links which yes I get a small commission on, just want to be clear and fair. Now let's get into some mix media fun.

     Giving myself about 5 to 10 minutes, looking high and low for what to do use for todays mix media page. This page seemed to came together like, dare I say like magic. It was so easy, fun and great texture.
     Your probably  wondering why I only give myself a couple of minutes to gather up my supplies, I don't want to over think it and I want to come together as naturally as possible. I think that if you have theme or a style then it wont come out as plan but if you go in blank working on a page, it's like magic.
   Sometimes I do get lucky an idea or style does come with little or few changes. I also feel that you take this route in your mix media work that be flexible to change. I even get luck and no changes are needed. Each page is full of su…

While watching some of my favorite Cricut user YouTubers some exciting news was shared. Cricut has come out with some new  items. So you know me had to check  out all the new crafty goodies and  I came across something that made me so very happy. I found not one but two brand new 12x12 double sided Hello kitty paper pads. It is six amazing designs, you get two of each and let's not forget it is double sided. The paper, I believe is heavy weigh and is beautiful.
   I know what you are thinking, it's for the only for the cricut well that is not true my friends. These papers can be used for anything, image is a great gift so use it and if you are a huge fan of HK like I am you will want to get both of them. I have a video sharing both paper pads so you can make up your mind if it is for you.
