Tuesday Tunes – Wonderful – Janet Devlin

I officially started back at Uni yesterday. Technically I have finished for the year, but I have decided to do units over Summer session. I was going to be doing 2 units, but when my learning sites became available on Blackboard there were 4 units there. I looked at them all and there are only 2 assessments for each one which I think is achievable, and given our tight money situation I won’t really be doing anything over Summer anyway, so why not knock off a couple more units while I am poor hehe.

Anyway, I was listening to music on YouTube the other night and this song came up on my feed as a suggestion. I wasn’t to sure about it on the first listen, but ever since I have had it bouncing around in my head, and have found myself singing it under my breath at random intervals.

Throwback Thursday

In an attempt to start using my blog more I have decided to get on the Throwback Thursday bandwagon. And thanks to my mother’s obsession with uploading old photos of us on Facebook, I have a large supply of photos to share hehe.

This photo was taken on New Years Eve 2000 with my little brother and sister. I was 15! I remember my friends and I buying glitter bath bombs and a tin of glitter dust (which I still have!) from the Body Shop so we would be glittery all night. I was very much in love with the top I was wearing and I remember burning it with the iron and being devastated (the mark on the front is not the burn, it had a flower design on it).

the ugly B word

Today I am going to talk about a dirty topic. The kind of topic that in the past has had me running in the opposite direction with my eyes covers and saying “la la la la” as loud as I can. The horrible topic of . . . budgeting. ARRRRGGGGGGG! But stay tuned to the end as I will have a lovely give away at the end of this post to help you with your budgeting. Contest is now finished. Winner will be announced soon.

And the winner is

2013-14 Erin Condren Life Planner review

Hi guys,

so yet again I have dropped the ball when it comes to posting content in my blog, but who is surprised by that? I thought that it was about time that I did some sort of review on the Erin Condren Life Planner that I bought last June, but I figured that it was something that needed a video done on it. So thats what I did, I even created a YouTube channel just for the purpose. Go check it out and see what you think. Also if you are thinking of getting a Life Planner of your own you can get $10 off if you use this link - https://www.erincondren.com/referral/invite/natashacane

 

Erin Condren Life Planners

So I purchased an Erin Condren Life Planner this week, if you havn’t heard of them, they are these really cool planners that they market in a way that makes grown women feel like kids at Christmas. They are customisable, you can add on as much stuff to it as you need (or want?), and they look A M A Z I N G.

They take a while to get due to the customisable part, which makes the “kid at Christmas” feeling so much worse, I check my account about 3 times a day to see if there is an progress on it yet (there isn’t but then thats not suprising seeing as its July 4th time over in the US).

So what do crazy people (aka me) do when they have ordered a beautiful planner that they are itching to use 2 weeks ago? We make a temporary planner hehehe. I am actually pretty impressed with my efforts, I intend on using this as my Life Planner until my real one arrives then transfer everything into the pretty, customised, Erin Condren goodness.

This is the month view:

Finished a quilt

I have been working on this quilt for a little while, it is for a friend who is having a baby in a couple of weeks. The top is small triangles pieced into larger triangles then all put together to form a rectangle. The backing is just left over pieces of fabric randomly sewn together. I used the Jungle Bungle fat quarter bundle from the Fat Quarter Shop. To quilt it I just stitched in the ditch so you can’t really see it on the front but the design of the front is mirrored in the quilting on the back.
