Did you have a good weekend? My dad fixed the air conditioner in my car so we had a GREAT weekend. NEVER take your vehicle’s ac for granted. Never EVER. It’s pretty much in my top 5 things to be most thankful for. What did you guys do over the weekend?
I also organized a bit over the weekend. I added to my August calendars (yes…that was supposed to be plural), worked on meal planning, made a list of the projects I am going to knock out this week, and planned out our first unit for homeschool (that we are starting today…wish us luck!).
I do love to be organized…but there are few things I do to make planning and organizing more fun (nerd alert!). If I think it’s fun, I’m more apt to stick with it. Here are some of the things I do that maybe you already do or maybe you’ll want to try to make organizing more fun for YOU…
-Get a pretty planner to keep with you at all times
(I recommend Much Ado About You planners. Honestly my favorite planner EVER).
-Use colorful pens
(I like the thin Sharpies)
-Washi tape important events
(I got my washi from Target but you can order it online and get it at most craft stores)
-Bookmark pages in your planner so you can flip to them easily
(I like to make pretty bookmarks)
Speaking of pretty bookmarks, did you see the adorable Button Bookmarks that Jamielyn from I Heart Nap Time made? Jamielyn’s bookmarks actually inspired the bookmarks I am going to share with you today…
-glue gun and glue sticks
I used supplies I already had. I highly suggest looking through your craft and scrapbooking stash to see if you can find anything to dress up those paper clips.
The steps are pretty simple…
For the baker’s twine bow bookmarks, I simply tied a bow (knotting it first) and trimmed the ends.
For the washi tape bookmarks, I trimmed down the tape and wrapped it around the top of the paperclip. Then I just trimmed up the end with my scissors.
And for the paper flower bookmarks, I layered the paper flowers and glued with hot glue. I glued a small piece of felt on the back to hold the flower in place.
So cute, right?
Now my bookmarks feel so fancy…especially in my adorable Much Ado About You planner.
Thanks for stopping by today!
I hope you have fun organizing this week.
