About Me

Hello and welcome to a short story about me and the purpose of this blog.

What began as a simple journal blog about vintage collectibles and design interests on the WordPress.com platform (that I only invested some of my free time to) has morphed into a totally different website in the past couple of years. When I stumbled on the growing interest in fun planner stickers and time organization… that was what really got my creative interests flowing.   In the business world I’ve worked in ( as a working Mom) juggling time schedules has always been my thing as well as an absolute necessity.  I have calendars/planners all the way back to high school.  I know I’m geeky that way.

This website has been an incredible journey of self development and tech skills growth.  Now,  I am devoting much more time to it  because this once relaxing project has become an exciting project with new promises for the future prompted by blog followers and readers like you.

I’m the youngest of eight children and a single mother of two young adults. I have worked in a variety of industries from commercial insurance, to real estate and education.  I  once even taught a High School Office computer skills class.  But this blog was supposed to be about my hobbies, diy crafting and design.  It has since become a new, exciting chapter of my life.

I’ve used the combined skills from this experience to carve out a blog that you will hopefully continue to visit. For now as I develop this blog, I ‘m trying to take my own advice which is…Enjoying the journey….and all the people who I meet.

  1. I just found this site through CraftCrave and I think it is fabulous. I use a Silhouette Cameo and your printables are great. Thank you.

    1. I’m glad you like this site. Thanks for the compliment and stay tuned for more Silhouette freebies. 🙂

  2. I just found you site a few days ago and I love it. Thank you for sharing your beautiful work. I have a silhouette and hope to print some stickers for my planner once I figure out what I am doing.

  3. I love it! the printables for the happy planner are my fav. I use InDesign to make my own but it is very hard to do… what program do you use? I hope you respond 🙂 love from the Netherlands

    1. I use a combo of programs…Inkscape (an open source vector design program) and Adobe Illustrator which I am barely learning. I agree the learning curve is steep! That’s why some of my first designs were so plain and simple. I also use Silhouette software Designer Edition which gives you different kinds of flexibility with pattern designs.

  4. I am not sure, but the fairytale book you talked about sounds a bit like the book I cherished as a child for exactly the same reasons! I loved the illustrations which may well have been art nouveau or for some reason I used to think of them as irish illustrations back then. I don’t remember the stories either except the very first story was called “Dick Nameless”. I am wondering if we are talking about the same book. It may have been called “A Treasury of Fairytales”.

  5. I just found your website and I LOVE IT!! I’m addicted to it really. 🙂 Thanks for sharing all your creativeness, it’s very inspiring.

  6. Just wanted to say a BIG Thank-You for all of the Planner Printables you’ve made available! I can’t wait to try some of them out. You are VERY talented!!!

  7. You are amazingly talented and I am so appreciative of you sharing that with us! THANK YOU!! I also wanted to thank you for making printables for the mini Happy Planner. I just switched to one (from the classic size) and wasn’t surprised at all when I went to my favorite blog and there they were; gorgeous printables just for the mini! You rock!!!

    1. Thanks for your generous praise. It’s so nice to hear from “pleased” customers? I am glad you find my website a great resource. Have fun with your Mini Happy Planner. 🙂
