in bloom


Hello! I hope that you are having a fun & relaxing weekend. We are spending a quiet Sunday at home. The guys are watching movies and playing on video games while I'm happily knitting wildflowers and playing with my new MINI Happy Planner. Can you tell that I'm already dreaming of springtime blossoms and blooms? It's hard not to when the February weather has been unseasonably balmy and warm here in Maryland.

I'm finally on the last color of my winter fade and had planned to finish it this weekend but couldn't resist casting on for a new pair of socks. The pattern is called fine and dandy socks and the yarn is by Lichen and Lace in the appropriately named wildflowers colorway. It's knitted toe-up which is a fun change from how I usually make my socks.

Here's a quick peek inside my planner at next week's spread:


Besides having something new to decorate with stickers and washi tape (always a cause for joy) I am on a mission to become more organized. My usual system of keeping track of appointments, errands, chores and special dates consisted of post-it notes scattered everywhere and half of them getting lost. I knew things had to change when the little guy and I showed up for his wellness checkup two weeks early. I'll go into more details on how I use my planner in another post, but so far it has made a tremendous difference. Do you use a planner and if so, which one? I'm amazed at all the cool choices out there and can now understand the hashtag #planneraddict.

  1. That looks like a perfect yarn/stitch-pattern combination. Really pretty.

  2. I definitely have fallen off my planning wagon and find I'm a little aimless, with the spring coming I want to be more organized for the rest of the year. -Sierra

  3. I used to be so good with a planner. I have a Target one but it was buried somewhere and while I've found it again, it sits neglected. I used to use our Pottery Barn dry erase board at our apartment with each person's schedule in a different color but it's stored away as I had wanted to paint the kitchen first and didn't want to put holes in the walls, etc.

  4. I just use a regular calendar planner, nothing fancy, although I usually try to find a pretty cover. But decorating the inside has never been a draw for me. Yours looks adorable!

  6. Oh your pictures make me feel so cheery. I love lists and I love stickers, and I definitely love a good plan, but I can tell you right now that I don't think I'm a good match with the planner. I ignore it for lengths of time, I'm much better with a spreadsheet or an old fashioned lined journal. I aspire to the planner :)

  7. That's a great planner and washi tape is always fun!!! I use a Bullet Journal, because I can cater it to my life and do some art and doodling in there as well.
