Finding Focus

I’m having difficulty staying focused lately. While I have no problem making very detailed To-Do lists, I’m lacking the time management to actually tackle it. Maybe that’s one of the flaw with planners. We aspire to be, at least on paper, productive beings and I can easily fill a page with things I should get… Continue reading Finding Focus

Saturday Recap: Driving All Over

This past weekend was our busiest yet.  After a late Friday board game night with good friends (Pandemic with four people is a challenge!), we were up early Saturday to drive out to Cravern Farm Antique Tailgate Sale.  I have to say I have been very spoiled by years of having gone to Elkhorn’s annual… Continue reading Saturday Recap: Driving All Over

Makeup Collection | One Year Later

Paring down meant doing so in every aspect of my life.  Beauty products was definitely a category I needed to tackle, because at one point in my life, I was caught up by all the youtube hyped reviews and found myself buying things just to try them.  My skin didn’t take to the constant changing… Continue reading Makeup Collection | One Year Later

Craft Cart Tour

Two years and three moves later, I have curated a well stocked craft cart that both meets my crafting/stationery needs, yet doesn’t make me feel like I’m hoarding supplies and letting it gather dust.   You’ve seem my craft box contents in a previous post, but now I take you into what’s in my very… Continue reading Craft Cart Tour

2016 Planner Setup

I love planners.  I’ve used one ever since they started giving one away at the beginning of each school year starting in middle school.  For an organizational person like me, it was so much fun to color-code and make sure appointments were not forgotten. Over the years, I’ve used so many different versions.  Thick spiral-bound… Continue reading 2016 Planner Setup

Nail Polish Clear-Out

I love a good capsule.  Capsule wardrobe, capsule makeup collection, capsule craft kit.  So why not a capsule nail polish collection? I used to have a huge vintage stamp drawer hung up on the wall displaying my dozens of bottles of nail polish.  Having been a subscriber of a few beauty boxes, it made it… Continue reading Nail Polish Clear-Out

Craft Box Contents | A Tour

It took two years to pare down to having most of my craft supplies housed in what The Container Store calls a small hobby box.  Before this, I had a whole craft room with a drafting table, a bookshelf full of supplies and even a closet packed with even more.  It all gathered dust.  And… Continue reading Craft Box Contents | A Tour

J.Crew Leather Organizer Review

I’ve been in the search for minimalist organizers for my stationery.  I find I don’t need big stacks of journaling cards or fifteen different pens with me when I go out to a cafe, which I like to do often.  Most of the time, I don’t use all the supplies I lug around with me… Continue reading J.Crew Leather Organizer Review

Mini Travel Series | My Train Case

I’ve got some exciting news – I’m traveling in a week and thought it might be fun to share what I am packing with on my week-long trip to Seattle and Portland.  We’ll be visiting family, hiking, scouting out neighborhoods for future residents and staying in a Tiny House Hotel, so I’m packing as minimally… Continue reading Mini Travel Series | My Train Case
