My Plannerd Week 39

I’m enjoying my new stickers. This week’s “theme” is kind of fishy and fun. I used some washi style decorative tape and stickers from my new set. I can’t help but smile when I look at these fish!

Sprucing up my planner with some cute fishy stickers. #stickers #planner #plannerd #planneraddict

So many stickers for just $1.00. I am so happy that I splurged. I’ve looked at other stores and even online. I can’t believe how expensive stickers can be~! I’m considering getting some labels or sticker paper and making my own designs. Has anyone ventured into this realm of DIY before? I’d love to hear more about it.

Need this bad. Hot tea! @CelestialTea

I can tell that Autumn is setting in. There are leaves on the ground and a chilly bite to the air. My craving for hot tea has started too. During the colder months, you can usually find me with a hot mug warming my hands. I’ve been caffeine-free for several years so my stash is mostly herbals and decaf brews. Mmmm I think I’ll go make a cup right now.

Take care and be well.


My Plannerd Week 38

I bought some fun new goodies last week. I know, shame on me. I broke my self-imposed spending freeze. The good news is it wasn’t very much money. I found the elusive Dollar Tree washi tape and some stickers. I just had to splurge.

I broke my vow of not spending. Got 3 rolls of decorative tape & stickers at the Dollar Tree!

The stickers are just too cute. I’m considering doing “themed” weeks for awhile. This week’s theme was pink and cute. I even had a pink Hello Kitty sticky note covering part of this spread. Aren’t the little panda, fox and hedgehog stickers adorable? I just happened to have my Hi-Tec-C 0.4 out and figured, what the heck – PINK WEEK! (I believe that is the Sakura color.)

I'm back on Instagram. Follow me!!!

If you’d like to follow me, my username on Instagram is JustDiySara. I know… I left but it’s annoying not seeing the full captions when people on Twitter post Instagram photos. Perhaps that’s a silly reason but I’m back nonetheless.

Take care and be well.

Is it me or is this picture blurrier than I usually post? I probably shouldn’t have to ask but it is allergy season and I spend a lot of time blinking, squinting and squirting stuff into my eyes. I try not to assume what I’m looking at is unclear.

I’ve been trying to establish more of a routine. So far it has been going pretty well. My exercising hasn’t aggravated my tendinitis which is great. I’m just hoping it is enough to strengthen my leg and ankle. Surgery isn’t too far off.

I’m in total denial about it being the middle of September already. It doesn’t seem possible. I mean I’ve been conscious every day and aware of time passing so the fact time has advanced shouldn’t be so jarring, should it? I feel like the world is spinning and I’m sort of floating around it thinking that everyone should slow down.

I haven’t decided on a planner for 2014 yet. I’ve been poking around ideas involving Filofax, index cards, lined journals, etc. Maybe I’ll post more about that soon.

Be well.

My Plannerd Week 36

My apologies for another double week and also for the blurry second photo. It looked a lot crisper on the tiny screen. How embarrassing.

I’m ready for summer to be done with the hot and humid weather. I’d like to have my windows wide open and my A/C turned off. Unfortunately, the ending of summer means winter isn’t too far off. Don’t get me wrong, I adore autumn. It just might be my favorite season. Too bad we can’t have Spring and then Autumn. I’d like that… a lot. Shorter days don’t sound like any fun either. Snow either. Blah. But first I need to concentrate on adjusting to a new work schedule and getting my ankle surgery out of the way. First things first.

Be well.


My Plannerd Week 33

My Plannerd Week 34

My apologies for not posting last week. I picked up a Monday at work which threw off my usual routine. Today I visited my dentist for some numbing, drilling and filling. I’m taking it easy. Lots of rest.

My ankle surgery will be October 30th. I’m trying not to be anxious. I’ll take it a day a time. Slow and steady.

Is August really ending already? This year is going far too fast for me.

Be well.

This spread is a bit crazy. I found myself back in my boot in order to rest my ankle. I’d over done activities again.

After work on Saturday, Matt and I went to Target. I acquired a couple rolls of decorative packing tape – dots in pink and black. I also got a couple stampers with various sayings. You can hopefully read “What A Day” and “The Best” on the right page. I wasn’t on a flat surface so the stamping is wonky. Oh well.

Time to focus on this week’s craziness. Be well.

I had this all ready to post but I got sidetracked. I broke out some stickers and a bit of deco tape for this spread. I even doodled some. This feels more like my planner, no?

Be well.


My Plannerd Week 25

Another week has snuck past me. Nearly July, nearly my birthday. It’s summer. I’m not a fan of hot and humid weather. I do enjoy going out for custard though.

Our new kitten – Finnegan McFluffy – is doing well. He had his first vet visit on Friday. He got an all clear and lots of love from the staff. He’s already grown so much. He’s 13 weeks old and bound to grow more. I told him he could stay small and I won’t mind one bit.

Finnegan 13 weeks


My Plannerd Week 24

I used my new Papermate InkJoy Quatro 1.0 pen a lot during this week. Multi pens are very convenient. I find the 1.0 to be a bit broader than my ideal but it writes smoothly and easily. I grabbed this bad boy for just shy of two dollars at Walmart.

Do you prefer multi pens or carrying multiple pens?


My Plannerd Week 23

I used my “Nature” Staedtler fineliners a lot. The week was kind of crazy. Luckily Toby felt better after two rough days of not eating. I’m so glad he’s playing and purring again. Now if only he can learn to let me sleep until the alarm.

Be well.
