A Winter Wonderland!

Not really. šŸ˜¦

We have been stuck in our house, except for a few instances when we attempted to face Armageddon and failed miserably. Our wonderful Texas state really has no clue how to deal with ice or snow or ice AND snow, even after several years in a row where we have had nothing but catastrophic events due to the weather. Really. Is it really that hard to think that winter is actually an occurrence even in Texas and prepare for it? Sanding, people! Salt Trucks, folks!

Anyway, this provided me with some extra idle time and I put it to use wisely by getting caught up on my Planners. This was an exciting week with my article being published on the UK Filofax page and all! I truly enjoyed seeing it. Hope you all saw it also!

And here in all its glory is my Original personal size for week 49. Week 49??????? EEEEEEKKKKK! There are only 52 weeks in a year! We are almost into a new year already and I am not prepared. Maybe I should stop complaining about winters in Texas. I feel just as numbed and shocked every time a new year comes as they do when they see ice and snow. By the way, I have a Xmas layout post coming this week but this one was ready so why not! I know, I know, it is blue again and that flowery washi tape has been used to death but come on!!! Doesn’t the combo look awesome?? šŸ™‚

My Planner Tower. Osterley A5, Daytimer A5, MS Arc A5 and Domino Personal size.


The Mickey Mouse post its are from Disney World. I visited in the summer and could not pass up. The Washi Tapes are from Two Peas in a bucket, and so are the arrow clips. The Plastic Tabs on top are so old I can’t even remember where I got them.

Stay tuned for some awesome Xmas Filofax goodness coming this week!!!

The best morning email ever!

I woke up this morning at around 4:30 am. I know, I know. I’m an odd bird. I love being up before the world. Because of the time difference, I already had an email from England in my inbox and it read like this:
