Hello 2017, I’ve been waiting for you

We kiss 2016 good-bye at the stroke of midnight, a lost love that will never be again. It is on to bigger and better things. The beginning of anything, the year, the month, the week and every morning is a clean slate, a chance to better yourself, and to move on from the past. Big things are happening for Hudson and Blake in 2017. My line of skincare products are being sold in 3 different retail locations as well as online which is very exciting and not something that I ever dreamed of happening. I could not have done it without the support and encouragement from all of you. I really appreciate every comment, email, inquiry and purchase.

During these cold winter evenings I find myself sitting at my sewing machine more often than not. I have had a few orders flood in for custom baby sets. The basic set includes a 30×35″ stroller blanket that has a soft minky back, and a set of 3 burp clothes of coordinating fabric. There is also baby slippers, teething rings, car seat covers and more. I love being able to create all these baby items. I have been so busy with these different custom orders that I haven’t had a chance to get anything available to the rest of you! Fear not, there will be some product shortly.

The etsy store is slowly coming together, I am slow at getting things up online. So if there is something that you want that you don’t see there, you can always email me your order.

With all these new products and orders and just trying to keep my regular life together, I have decided that it is time to follow through with planning out my weeks and to set those little goals.


I shopped around and read reviews for a plethora of different planners, bullet, happy planner, erin condren life planner, plum paper planner, ibloom life and business planner, and the organized life planner. There are so many options out there! It really comes down to personal preference. I chose the Me and my Big Ideas Happy Planner because it is customizable in every which way.


It basically makes a bullet journal into a bigger, remove and add pages at will without wrecking the book, all in one planner.

You can either draw out your spreads or if you purchase the special hole punch, there are many blank templates that are ready to be printed out and inserted for easy use!



This is my first week layout. I am a visual person, I need to be able to see things laid out so I can see my progress.


Habit trackers are popular in bullet journaling and really is a great idea. My goal is to create healthy habits for myself and to keep track of when I last performed a task to easily see where I need to pull up my socks.

I am excited to spend this year with you all!

  1. I love to keep journals, but I have been so busy with other things, that half way through 2016 I simply stopped. I must get into the habit again. I love your style.
