How do you keep yourself organized?

Image
Hi Everyone,

How do you keep everything organized in your life? I use a Happy Planner Classic. I was introduced to the planning world about a year ago; I have been hooked every since. I have planned till the end of the year. Below are what my next two week look like.



SO the big question is: How do to you keep yourself organized? Do you plan in a planner? If so which one?

Have you been to your local Dollar Store lately, they have a variety of items that you can use to make a quick, easy, and beautiful Christmas gift. I picked up a few things under $10 and put together two wonderful gifts. Below is a list of what I picked up:
Set of Ornamentsglueglitterstickerswine glasswine glass holderhot cocoamarshmallowsgift bags
Here is a picture of the ornament and what I used to make it:



Here is an up-close shot of the ornament:

How to make:
1. Take off the top of the ornament, add a little glue and glitter, put the top back on and shake. 2. Add whatever stickers or decorations that you like. You can also use color sharpies to write words on your ornaments. 3. Let it dry and wrap with festive tissue paper and put in a gift bag.
Makes a great gift for teacher, bus driver, or secret Santa at work.
The next gift is a wine glass, small bottle of sparking grape juice and packets of hot cocoa with Marshmallows. 



Below is the finished gift 

I hope these inspire you with…

Good Morning, Happy Monday

Willa Knight: Dweller? Sol? Accidental evolutionary hiccup?

Willa has never been a particularly useful dweller: she isn’t very good at chores, she isn’t very good at worshipping, she isn’t very good at not having opinions, and she isn’t very good with rules—but none of that matters anymore.
The rules are changing.
The dwellers are trying to make their own way in the world, and Willa can’t seem to help getting tangled up in their plans.
Luckily, she has the Abcurse brothers to help her out—until she doesn’t, and suddenly she’s alone again in a world on the brink of chaos. With the Abcurses gone, she’ll have to rely on her wits, and her sister Emmy, to stay under the radar and survive.
Because someone wants her dead.

But, really, what else is new?.

This is a full novel, 90,000 words. Book 3 of 5 in the Curse of the Gods Series

Hi Everyone,
        The holidays are upon us! In a matter of 2 weeks Christmas will be here. So time to get started on your Christmas cards. If you have already sent your then you are ahead of the game. Me, I am working on mine as we speak. The big question is are you going to make them or buy them. I enjoy both, I cannot wait until the end of the season you can find some priced as low as $.30. This year I will be doing a mixture of both. Today will be talking about some of the things that you can use to make Christmas cards:

My first step was selecting my envelope and cardstock. Once I do that I make sur…

Professional Readers Box by Brenda Novak

Hello fellow readers I have a treat for your today. I had a chance to chat with Brenda Novak about her Professional Readers Box. It is a box that brings books and goodies right to your door, who can beat that. Check out my chat below:


1. What inspired you to create the Professional Readers Box? 
I wanted to do something extra special for my online book group. They're an amazing bunch of bookworms--I adore them--and am always trying to think of something they might enjoy. My daughter, who works for me, suggested the boxes, and they have been so well-received that we've quickly had to gear up to do a lot more than we ever planned.
2. What typically goes in your boxes? And what is the price of the box?
The contents change every month. If I have a release out that month, it includes an autographed copy of my new book. If I don't have a release, I feature a guest author in the group and the box. Many of May's boxes included an autographed copy of Robyn Carr's new book, ANY …
