October 2019 Favourites

I’ve seen a few of these on YouTube and there’s no way I’m becoming a YTer LOL so I’m doing it here on ma blog, because I can.

Lost of favourites for the month of October, some are old favourites that I use lots, others are new to me.

First up is a subscription box. I’ve been on the fence about getting a sub box for so long. The crappy exchange rate from Australian to US makes most of the overseas ones super expensive so I decided to look closer to home. Planners Anonymous had been on my radar for awhile and when I got a little extra $$ my way I thought I’d give it a go. They had a sub only past kit sale so I thought, well why not sub and then I could check out a past kit or 2. Glad I did.

At the moment I’m only getting the standard sub, but for $45AUD you get a fair bit – double sided papers, 3 rolls of washi, die cuts, a gorgeous pen, quote cards, vellum, a printed acetate sheet, stickers and a mystery bonus. There’s also an extra sticker kit and paper kit but out of my budget at the moment.
Oh, and each month you get a bunch of free printables with your sub and the option to buy luxe versions
They also make the most gorgeous B6 TNs.

If you are interested in seeing what’s in the kits, check out Plum Mashable on YT – she’s the one who mainly convinced me to sub after watching a bunch of her videos. Pic above is the October kit – Forest Falls.

My HP Sprocket. It was my Mother’s Day gift. I love it. It’s great for on the go scrapping. I can print a pic out & chuck it in my planner.

Mine came from Officeworkshttps://images.officeworks.com.au/api/2/img/https://s3-ap-southeast-2.amazonaws.com/wc-prod-pim/JPEG_1000x1000/HPSP200B95_hp_sprocket_200_bluetooth_photo_printer_bundle_luna.jpg/resize?size=600&auth=MjA5OTcwODkwMg__

I’m loving the new look Awesome Ladies Project. Kristin has done an amazing job. It reminds me so much of where I spent my early social days on the internet, before MySpace, Facebook, Twitter and all of them. It’s friendly, helpful and  so welcoming. You can sign up for a free membership which gives you access to the basics – your profile, unlimited gallery space and so much more.

1. Today has been weird. Warm and windy this morning. Wet and windy at lunch then back to warm and windy. Hello spring
2. I’ve been crafty and blogging again lately. Mainly sharing my #currently cards and #thursday3 but working on some new posts.
3. I’m working on doing some memory keeping in a B6 TN and an A5 ring binder planner. Will see which I prefer

Crafty projects

(aka what I’ve been working on lately)

I’ve got quite a few little projects I’ve been working on this year. There’s been my Awesome Ladies Project Book of Me which started in a 6×8 album at the start but has moved into a B6 sized TN insert. There was the ‘Summer’ (winter for me here in Oz) camp at The Reset Girl (TRG).

After seeing so many of the Aussie girls in our TRG group creating in their TRG Crafty Club Playbooks, I caved and finally bought the Summer version, worked through it during July to September and actually finished it. I then bought the Winter book (Jan-March) to work on whenever and then grabbed the Fall (Oct-Dec) version and am currently working through that.

I did 30 Lists in September and jumped back into the new season of TRG Listers Gotta List at the beginning of the month.

Loving the community at both Awesome Ladies & TRG and all the little projects I’m creating. Now to start sharing some of my creations here

Thursday 3–17 October 2019

Here’s my Thursday 3 for this week….

Snap a selfie, share 3 right now things and tag 3 friends.
1. Love Fridays. Time spent one on one with my little. Usually she just wanders off to watch TV (today is power rangers) but no big sister to annoy her
2. I’m busy printing and making TN inserts. I’m really loving the B6 size. We’ll see how long it lasts
3. The new @the_awesome_ladies_project site is amazing. It’s like the forums and galleries we grew up with years ago. It feels so much more like home than some social media. Big thanks to @rukristin for creating a safe, loving space on the www

Thursday 3–3rd Oct 2019

Ok so I’ll be posting these on a Friday cause that’s when I share (cause it’s Thursday in the US then)

In case you are new to Thursday 3 it’s an Instagram challenge started by the amazing Kristin of The Amazing Ladies Project (& one of my fav crafters ever). You snap a selfie, share 3 right now things about you/your life and you tag 3 friends. Check it out by following #Thursday3 on Instagram.

Today is brought to you by the following 3 things.
1. It’s school holidays which means having the kids home all day, 7 days a week. It also means we get to have special moments like this. Me having a swing with the littlest kiddo while the big kiddo is at an appointment.
2. The weather is slowly warming up. Means more outdoor time. Seeds have been planted and are in their greenhouse.
3. I’ve found a creative spurt. Been on a crafting spree lately. Paper craft, stamping and working on some cosplay bits and pieces.

Currently–1st October 2019

The amazing Kristin – founder of Awesome Ladies and partner of the Crafty Ass Females – has a weekly challenge to document your life Currently.
What you are currently doing on a particular day each week. I’m choosing to do my documenting on Monday evening, so here we are.

You can grab your Currently cards from The Awesome Ladies Project

I also use the extended Currently list in my bullet journal at the end of each month, which I share over on my Instagram account (which you can follow here.)
