Free Printables

There are so many sites that have printable ideas - cards, recipes, menu planning and recipes - I have started some of my own, collected and dowloaded lots but have no real way of organizing them all and the ideas within them. I will figure a way to post the actual files on the blog or shots of them to send them out where possible. I'll provide links to ones that aren't mine.

If you have (assuming I'll have more readers) requests for ideas I'll either find them, or create them.

My next project to work on is a birthday and mailing list binder to go with my hand-made cards.

I currently have a year in calendar to help with cleaning and meal ideas.

So after many months I am doing an update to this post! It's been too long in collecting documents, making my own and collecting them all into files and folders in various locations on the computer that I still haven't made my binder. 

Last night when I couldnt sleep, I made a list of what I need/want to have in my binder, to help myself narrow down and actually get this thing done to help get organized!

My list of documents is: 

Year, month and day calendars 
Schedules of Strong Start and Parks and Rec 
Garbage collection 
Address including birthdays of friends, spouse and kids 
House cleaning schedule
Cleaning tips like this one that i have found from Martha Stewart
Babysitting info (not that she ever has, but for the future)
52 weeks organization (filled in of course) from Org Junkie
Menu planning for summer and winter with 4 weeks of each (for rotation)

Can you tell that I love Org Junkie? (no link here)

New follower and design

Creating a blog is not as easy as I thought. I have been using Google's Blogger help Getting Started Guide which has answered a lot of questions. I've also used Momma Go Round's tutorial here

Just friggin figured out how to link ... all be it the long way but I have created a link!!! and now Dan just showed me how to do the "LINK" button. dammit oh well. 

I also have a friend following, my first. Thanks Michelle!

Just starting out

I know at this point I have no new readers, or any for that matter. I have been reading blogs for months and have so many ideas that I would like to start to organize them all on one place, not just my favorites :)

My plan is to blog about ideas that I have found and take pictures of my results; where possible.

I'm a crafty person by nature and have just been going in over drive seeing all the great ideas on the blogs that I follow. I'll be adding great bloggers as I come across other ideas.
