My wonderful and lovely friend, Ann, who is the dyer behind Twin Mommy Creations, had a mini skein Advent Calendar this year, and I just had to get it. OR I just had to get it for it to be from my husband for Christmas! Cuz y’all know I have a mini skein addiction!

It’s been awhile! I didn’t really have anything new to show you while a few weeks ago when I would have filmed this episode normally. I’m glad I waited, because I had LOTS to show off.

Blogs I Follow & Why

I compiled a list of the 5 main blogs I follow and their respective YouTube channels. I get a lot of good information and inspiration from these bloggers/YouTubers. I hope you enjoy them as well.

  1. http://Twinmommycreations.blogspot.com

Ann Mikeal is a friend of mine, who has a growing business in spinning raw fiber into various yarn weights, dyeing raw fiber, tatting, dyeing yarn blanks, creating knitting and crocheting notions (stitch markers, polymer clay buttons), and reselling of specialty fibers (Angelina and Camel to name a few).

Her work is beautiful, and she does custom orders. Ann is an absolute doll to work with, and one of the sweetest people you will ever meet.

I stumbled across this blog from one of the planner Facebook groups. Giftie has some great tips that I have incorporated into my own planner. Two of which are: running shopping lists in my planner and punching both sides of the notepaper for easier use.

Here’s a link to her Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/groups/345373425612939/

  1. http://philofaxy.blogspot.com

This website/blog is all about Filofax. Posts consist of interviews with Filofax users, new product releases, free-for-all question asking posts, and weekly roundups.

I really enjoy the weekly roundup posts from this blog. It shares links to many other planner blog posts.

Here’s the Facebook link for you to check out: https://www.facebook.com/Philofaxy?fref=ts

Alexis, aka Miss Trenchcoat, is a genius! She is such an inspiration. She quit her job and started her own business, working from home. (A dream of mine as well!)

Her blog posts are very informative, and her YouTube videos are also informative and enjoyable to watch.

Here’s a link to her YouTube channel: https://www.youtube.com/user/MissTrenchcoat

  1. http://www.carieharling.com/

Dispatches From the Frat House is a recent blog and YouTube find. Carie is very personable and her YouTube videos are fun to watch.

I’m currently working through all of them, and it makes me feel better to know that there’s another planner addict who switches around what planner make and model they use—sometimes on a month to month basis.
