Time for a planner flip thru! Another month in the books (or the planner) for my Passion Planner. I’m actually amazed with myself that I’ve stuck with this planner this long to be honest.

I apologize for shaky camera. My tripod wouldn’t go up high enough to get my entire planner in the picture.

My coworker was going for almost the entire month of February, and I had to cover his shifts and classes as well as my own. It was a crazy month. If you look closely at my planner, you will see all the white out. White out was my best friend.


Episode 5 Coned Yarn & Bon Bons!!! I’m very excited that I’ve been sticking with these short knitting podcast sessions.

In this video, I show how seemingly equal Bernat skeins of yarn cone up differently, and what additional mini skeins I’ve accumulated/found.

Ann, of TwinMommyCreations, had given me some samples over the years, and I misplaced them. I knew I still had them, but for the life of me, I couldn’t remember where I put them. I had had the idea to one day start a blanket made out of just TwinMommyCreations yarn. My mini skein blanket is a way to do that.

I have refound the sample while cleaning and reorganizing my craft room. I also refound two packages of the LionBrand Bon Bons, which I thought I had sold. I’ve also bought three more packages, so they will be put in the mini skein blanket at some point. I don’t plan on just putting all the Bon Bon packages in back to back. We shall see.

Thanks for tuning in and reading. See you in a few days.


I’m already thinking about Christmas and planning gifts, despite only being into the first few months of the New Year.

In this video, I should how I’ve set up a plain notebook in the Bullet Journal style to be my Christmas Planner.

I love the Bullet Journal style. To me, it’s the easiest way to keep a notebook organized. I gave myself 3 pages for the Table of Contents.

I also am going to use this to keep track of birthday gifts bought and gift ideas in general, hence specific names and Other Christmas/Birthday.

I have a page for each of the immediate family members who get specialized gifts, instead the bulk/family gifts.

When planning for the coming Christmas, I go ahead and make my gift list, like this:    It helps me keep track of who I need to get something for and who’s receiving the bulk/family gift.

I’ve written about Family Gifts before in a previous blog post. If you’re interested, you can read about it here.


My March 2017 Goals Update is going to look a little different compared to Goals Update posts of the past.

In light of my new blog writing and YouTube filming schedule, it’s only proper that my Monthly Goals/Targets format is updated at as well.

Here’s a picture of my February Monthly Targets:

And here’s how March’s looks:

I’m still slowly plugging away at my Non-Fiction works. eBay, ETSY, and Amazon are going to an As Needed status. If I have stuff to list, I’ll list them, but I’m not going to stress about it.

The biggest change has been the Film X YouTube Videos and Write X Blog Posts. I’ve changed the way I’m creating content for my blog and YouTube channel. I was stressing myself out trying to create a month’s worth of content ahead of time, and it just wasn’t working out.

Now I have a list of blog post and video ideas that I choose from, and each week I film and write out three of them.

Anyone else working towards a goal where you’ve had to adjust how you’re doing things? I’d love to hear about it in the comments.
