& Hello 2019

You know, I never really thought of myself has liking New Years. I just enjoyed it being another holiday and excuse to get dolled up and party. However, I was watching an instagram story by ArrowsandBow where she mentioned it is her favorite time of year, because she likes the feeling of a fresh start.

Some people are negative nancies. Cause yes, the fact is it’s just another day. We don’t actually get a re-start. But isn’t the concept nice? Isn’t that sense of renewal well refreshing? Cause even though I never really looked at much that way; the past 3 years I have and quite frankly, I really enjoy it. I enjoy getting new calendars (usually multiple) I enjoy getting planners and blank to-do lists and the feeling I get thinking this may be the year i become a real adult with my shit together and most of all I enjoy making my goals for the year to come.  I don’t do resolutions… although you could say they are the same thing and I don’t do vision boards (we did one year and although I like the concept, finding all the pictures you need can be tedious) So, I make a Checklist. Something I can hang on my little board over my desk and look at frequently to remind what I want to accomplish and what I already have accomplished and given last years worked pretty well for me, I am doing it again this year.

Although, I designed last years… I really designed this years! I drew the confetti sides and everything; which may be lame but gives me some pride and already goes into one of my goals for 2019 which is to design more.  Below is my personal list, which is also available as a Free Printable for anyone else who wants to use it!

You’ve Been Boo’d 2018

It’s the first of October. Which means a lot of exciting things for me.. Fall, My Birthday, Halloween and activities related to all those things!  Since having kids, one of my favorite things is to get my Pinterest Mom, crafting on! If you are in this world already then you have probably already heard of getting “Boo’d” and if you are not… it’s a fun little activity for parents, kids, neighbors, etc. Like last year, I am participating again and want to share that with you!

This year I went a little “extra” and created felt treat bags (which are also for sale on my etsy shop) and I created my own instructions and signs that you can also print out and use!

In my bags I filled them with little inexpensive Halloween knicks knacks and treats and for the super little ones I found adorable Halloween themed sippy cups at Target. What’s also nice, is that you don’t have to go crazy or over the top either.

I would LOVE to see your Boo’d Treats! So please use the hashtag #alittlebitBOO if you particpate.
