Planner Week #27, 2014

June is dairy month here in Ontario Canada but I never made a special page for the event. This week I did so.
The picture of the calf is Violet. Isn't she sweet! The Sterling Butter is cut from a local promotion magazine telling the history of the butter factory in a near by town.Green gingham washi tape down the hole row, some polka dot in yellow across the top and stickers of flowers on top of the washi tape. A few summery stickers.

I did all my writing in green pen this week.

It was a real crazy week. Glad it's over.

Little Farmgirls

Every July I take pictures of my younger bunch of children, since the older ones as all at work now. It was a cool breezy day today and the baby was not at all cooperative, but a few of the 100 or so pictures I took turned our sort of okay!
All wearing dresses I smocked. The four year old in a blue batiste with a farm yard scene from Creative Smocking ( Australian) magazine. The baby is in a rose floral print, fabric sent to me from a girlfriend in England. It is a few rows of smocking in roses and green. The six year old is in a teal tiny gingham with sheep smocked on the bodice. Very fitting for these sheep/ cattle farmgirls.
She had cut her own bangs a few weeks ago!

Project Life Tabs for Planner

Project Life has no life up here where I live. Proof is in the pudding the store can't sell the stuff.
 I was in a scrapbooking store yesterday and spied all the Project Life by Becky Higgins on 70% off. The real deal too because they all had stickers, not a card up front stating a sale.
No the store was getting rid of this stuff.
I spied these and thought they were neat. Top or bottom tabs for my planner. Tabs with white labels.
12 plastic, a nice weight dividers. 2 red, 2 orange, 2 peach, 2 yellow, 2 teal and 2 grey.
They are for a full size binder, but a girl can always crop and re-punch holes to find her planner!

Cost to me $1.99 Can.

Strawberry Jam

Twelve Batches of jam have been made this week in 38C temperatures.
That is 48 x 500 mL jars. I am taking a break and getting back at it Friday.
