Summer Bucket List (Part 1)

So, what's on the list??? A better question might be...what is NOT on the list??? My husband has learned that one of his "favorite" things about me (or not) is how I love to get 100% involved in every thing that interests me. And almost EVERY thing interests me. Since the last nine weeks of school, I have become interested in:

1. Starting a blog (Welcome!) 
2. Creating TPT resources (haven't started yet)
3. Selling jewelry (uh...we won't talk about that one)
4. Creating planners (I've sold a few to my school friends)
5. Bible Journaling (waiting on my new Bible...SO EXCITED!)
6. Getting my social media numbers up (gotta start somewhere...again...welcome!)
7. Getting healthy (really need this baby weight GONE!)
9. Stickers (thank you Mrs. Montjoy), Washi Tape, and Pens!

Let's start with the blog. I love my blog, or the potential for my blog...I am most excited about posting on a regular basis, but I knew I would have to wait until school ended so that I could get into a strong, continuous routine. So, here I am...64 days of nothing to do except play with my 2 babies, maybe swim a little, and post, post, post! 

As far as TPT goes, I would like to say that I have all kinds of great ideas about what to include in my non-existent store....but....I don't. However, I'm hoping some ideas will come to mind over these next few weeks. I love to create and maybe I'll be able to come up with something that might help someone else. 

I'll skip the selling jewelry one for now. Let's just say, I found a line of jewelry I love and I think is really great, ordered a kit to sell said jewelry, and

The creating planners idea ties right into the Erin Condren interest. I'll just be honest and say I could not fathom paying for a planner what Erin Condren asks people to pay for a planner (keep reading...). I decided to create one customized to what I need and designed for how things work where I teach. Other teachers saw them, loved them, and started wanting me to create them one. So, I did and it was pretty fun! :) In the meantime...after hearing one of my dear friends go on and on about her Erin Condren Teacher Planner, I started seeing all of the hype on Instagram about the upcoming launch of the Life Planner. So, I entered a few contests and it just so happened I WON one!!! (Thank you, @silentpoetryarts @penpalhappyness @sweetlittlepenpals @swell_kids @theartofplanning @frugalcitygirl) These sweet ladies gave me a $50.00 gift card to and a $25.00 Etsy gift card. I can't wait to get all of that planning goodness in the mail to share what I ordered with everyone. In the meantime, make sure you click on their names above and check out their Instagram pages!! 

And while I'm going on and on about my excitement for my planner and accessories, I have been stalking Etsy pages, Pinterest boards, Facebook groups, and Instagram hashtags. I can go ahead and tell you that I will take back what I have said about the cost of Erin Condren's planners. I don't even have mine yet, but can tell you it will be worth the money, and while I didn't make the initial investment into mine...I guarantee you I will be on the Erin Condren bandwagon for years and years to come!! (sorry, hubby) :)

That's enough for tonight...I'll continue this post about the rest of my interests/obsessions/husband's headaches tomorrow! Make sure you click the buttons at the top right of my page and follow me on my social media links, so you are in the Faith, Family, and 5th loop!!

Stay tuned for Part 2 tomorrow!
