What Is Your Passion?

What a wonderful Sunday!  I have been on a little vacation from the grooming salon since Thursday.  We work Saturdays, and once every few months, we take a Thursday and Saturday off so we have a super long weekend.  (We do not work on Fridays and Mondays)  It has been a beautiful weekend to have off!  Sunny, hot, and not a thing planned to do!  I love that kind of  "stay-cation" :)

I wanted to share with you a few things that I have been busy doing.  Just some little fun and crafty stuff to pass the time, Many of the bloggers that I follow have hobbies and they are just wonderful!  I really don't have any hobbies, that is, until now!

 First, you need to know, that I have always love Fairies.  My sister and I used to pretend there were Fairies in our woods growing up.  Who am I kidding, I still think that!  I do, I do, I do believe in Fairies!   I've always wanted to do a Fairy Garden, and now I finally gotten around to making one.  This is a work in progress, as I will continue to add to it and make it grow next year, but for now........A place for my tiny friends to live............

I wish I could live here!  
It is in my front yard near my front door, 
so people who come can see it :) 

Another fun thing that I have been doing, is something called Glam Planning.  Ok, so I never heard of this until I starting Googling things to do with planners.  Come to find out, there is a whole planner word that I knew nothing about.  I love planners, paper, cards, pens, notebooks, and I thought I was the only one!  I am not!   I began obsessively watching You-Tube videos of people prettying up their planners, started ordering stickers, washi tape, which I never heard about until now, and stared having planning dreams, no lie.  I was hooked!  So, I ordered a brand new planner.  I started playing around and soon realized that my planner was to big to carry around, so I bought a smaller one.  

This is a Websters Color Crush Personal Sized Planner.  Yes, it has a long and important sounding name :)   I adore this little girl and we quickly became best friends.

This is called the Dashboard.  You can decorate it any way you want.  I found the adorable paper clips on Etsy and just had to have them to make my little girl look cute!

Here is a page that I did last week.  :) 

This is the Month View

I have been introduced into a new word that I just love.  New words, phrases, and new things to buy :)  Plus, I found out that there are other people like me who are obsessed with paper. Yay!  I am not a freak!  This is my new creative outlet!  I usually plan my week on Sundays for that week.  I pretty it all up, then fill in my week :)   If you check out my friend and fellow blogger Leah over at My New Ending, she has a beautiful Etsy Shop called DentalFlossLane.  One of her beautiful Travel Notebook Covers are in my future.  I didn't know you could make one into a planner.  See how much I am learning??? :) 

Anyway, this is what I've been up to while I've been away.  Thanks for letting me share my new hobbies with you!

Being creative has made me realize that I am capable. I am more than.  I think everyone needs a hobby.  They force you to take time out for yourself, to slow down.  Go find something you love even if it is something small.  Let it grow, and in turn you will also grow!

  1. I love fairy gardens! My good friend in California has made several and posts pictures on FB - I want one so bad! Your looks so sweet. Love all of the little details in it.

    Those planners - I knew they were a thing, but like scrapbooking, I don't dare get into them...knitting and all of the yarn keeps me both busy and poor, LOL. I think it's great that you are finding some fun ways to be creative and I'm glad you're sharing your projects!

  2. I love the fairy garden. I have a spot planned for one, but haven't done anything with it yet :)
