Hi, I’m Tricia! I currently live in CT. I’m a homeschool mom of three beautiful children. We are military and we move around a lot, so preserving memories is very important to me. I’ve been a memory keeper/crafter/planner for as long as I can remember, but once I had children, it really kicked into high gear. Keeping myself organized through planning and remembering our family adventures has become a passion of mine. Life moves so fast, and it’s nice to take a break and do something creative. I’m very much inspired by artists on Instagram. I love to follow watercolor artists and hand lettering accounts. Everything I see can be used in some way or another in my crafting. I’m also inspired by nature; we love to be outdoors. To me, crafting is a form of self-expression, whether it be a scrapbook layout or a planner page.
Big Happy Planner – I was so inspired by the geometric patterns and soft pastel colors of this kit. I had a lot of fun adding pattern to my week with the washi tape and using the stickers to add detail. The large alpha letters made my appointments pop and they even got used to create one of my favorite quotes, “Live loved.” The pattern on the papers immediately made me think of making a pocket. I knew I could easily cut straight across the pattern and glue it to another sheet to make a perfect secretarial style pocket. I love being able to store my supplies right with my week for easy access. The fresh colors and bold patterns of this kit made me smile, and that’s what decorating your planner is all about.
