Easy Breezy Big Book of Boo-Boos

My two year old loves playing doctor. Doc McStuffins is her current favorite show. She has a Doc McStuffins set and would pretend that one of her travel-size coloring books is her big book of boo-boos. I decided to make her one and found Disney’s printable version here. I felt like it was too much ink with the notebook background so we went for a simpler solution.

I’ve seen many people in the planner groups ask for ideas on archiving inserts. I thought I would share my process. When my planner begins getting to full I will go through and take out the inserts I no longer need in it. Then I sort through and any that I do not want to save I throw away. What I want to save I store in a small file portfolio that I got from Target dollar spot. It includes label stickers for all of the separate pockets and is ideal for inserts. They have many designs and colors; these are also changed with the rest of the dollar spot inventory.

Back when I was using monthly calendars instead of a bullet journal system in my Filofax I would save all of my months and weeks in separate pockets. However, since I’ve made the change I keep them all together. The monthly list acts as a divider for that month’s daily lists. Therefore, I have begun storing them all in a single pocket labeled ‘Spent’.
I also store spare inserts, notepads, and blank inserts in this folder. Eventually I will probably purchase another one and use one for notepads, stickers, dividers, and page flags; while using the other for spent/spare inserts. Among my pockets I currently have the following labels: spent, journal, extra, diary, inserts. I use the very front for notepads and the far back for stickers and dividers.

The possibilities for these little file folders are endless. If you’re a person that has a lot of spent inserts you could even use a folder per year for archiving. A bit of washi on the side with the label of what is contained in the folder would allow for efficient storage and retrieval. These fit nicely in to drawers and on bookshelves, while adding even more aesthetics to your planner area. How do you archive?

After watching this video I made this page marker as a gift. Will definitely be making a Totoro one like it for my own purposes. A cat would be super cute too!

DIY Greeting Cards

I have taken on a new hobby that I really love! Making greeting cards! I have made 7 thus far and can’t wait for more occasions so I can make some more! Unfortunately the thought of selling them didn’t come to mind until Joe said I should.

Since I have decided to offer my custom card services to others I have began taking photos to add to an album so people can see my work. Here are just a few I’ve made the past couple of days:

With just a few supplies you can make your own greeting cards as well! Not only will it save you money(and maybe even earn you some); but it will have a personal touch a store-bought card just can’t compare to.
