Yarn Surprise!

A local yarn store where my in-laws live was having a Going Out of Business Sale. My mother-in-law very kindly stopped in and picked up fourteen skeins of Lion Brand Homespun yarn for me in four different colors to surprise me with!

#onebookJuly2016 Week 3 Review

Almost there! As I/we get closer to the end of #onebookJuly2016, I’m wondering how many others out there are ready to break out their other notebooks and play with them again. I know I am. But there are 6 days left in this challenge, so onward!



Not a lot of new developments over the last week. I have noticed I’m not writing my blog posts like normal. I’ve been scrambling to get posts together this month and I wonder if it’s because I’m worried I’ll run out of room in my books.

This has also lead me to not work on my goals as much this month. I suspect this final week of July I’ll be trying to crank them out. Not working on my monthly goals has left me feeling like I haven’t done much this month, but if I look back at my Bullet Journal, I know I have gotten a lot done. Just nothing towards my goals.

I haven’t been journaling that much, but life got a little crazier than normal, so I’m still using the colletto. The green, black, and purple inks are hanging on.

There are 95 pages in my Bullet Journal insert for dailies and journaling. I’m on page 77. Almost there! It will be cool to have a single book for the month.

I didn’t do my weekly set up until Tuesday, and I didn’t fill it in completely and ALMOST missed something at work.

I’ve more or less given up on decorating. No washi tape or stickers have been seen since July 19th. Ooops.

Not going to lie. I’m ready for it to be over, because I want to use my smaller sizes again and I want to play with the new Foxy Fix Marina Le Petit #5 I have….
