Healing Journal Pages – For You or a Loved One With Life Changing Illness

I know that many of you already know I was diagnosed with breast cancer 3 years ago. That was a horrible chapter in my life, but I am hopeful that it is over. I had many surgeries and treatments, doctors appointments and insurance claims to keep track of, and it was so chaotic at times that I felt completely overwhelmed with it all.

I now have a friend who has been given the same diagnosis, and the one piece of advice I could offer her was to keep everything organized together – in one place, that was easy to keep track of.

Her aunt made her a binder to keep track of everything, and put some personal touches in it that I thought was pretty wonderful.

So, I decided while I have been busy working on some organizing and planner printables for my shop, that I would like to make something that would work for others who were facing a similar life changing diagnosis.

Healing Journal PrintablesWhether it is cancer, a disease that has affected your life, or any other illness that requires some tracking of everything that is going on around you – I wanted pages that would keep it all in one place, and make it something nice and personal.

New Kids/Teen Planner Printables!

I am sitting her cross eyed from the past few days of working on designing my next set of printables…..and I have spent the past 3 hours at least putting the pictures together for the Etsy listings, and then going through the process of uploading each of the designs I have finished and listing them for sale. I am having so much fun working on new ideas for planner printables – and designing fun covers!

My shop is filling up – and I still have lots more ideas:)

Kids/Teen Planner PrintablesI showed the life planning system I designed for adults in the last post…..(you can read about the printables I designed here). Well, my kids made it pretty clear to me as I was showing them that they wanted something that would work for them too!

So, that is what I have spent the past few days working on. I asked my kids and my teenage niece what they would need, and this is what I have come up with: (taken from their Etsy listing page)

New Life Planning System Printables

Life Planner PrintablesI have been busy the past few days coming up with an organization system that I think will work great for everyone – it is something that works for me, and I am known for being slightly disorganized with using any kind of planning system. I tend to jump all over the place and then give up because it doesn’t work the way I want.

So, I made my own. I asked some of my readers what they would like, and I had some feedback from members of my Facebook group….(Organized Mom Club).

I used some of the ideas from bullet journaling. I combined some of others. For me – the bullet journal system is great, but there were some things missing.

Lunchbox Note Printables for Back to School

Back to School Well, for some of you, school is already back in full swing. For us, the first day is coming up pretty fast, (too fast according to my kids….). They go back on September 3, and I feel like I am nowhere near ready!

We are lucky that this year our school is doing a trial run of getting all of the school supplies for the kids, and we just cut them a cheque to pay – so I am not having to deal with that stress! But, there is still clothes, water bottles, backpacks – things like that to get ready.

I see all of the posts on Facebook showing parents cheering and happy that school is starting, and I really think that maybe I am pretty uncool or something, because the truth is, I am devasted when school goes back. I hate it.

Our 2014 Summer Bucket List

**If you haven’t had a chance to read my original “Summer Bucket List” post – make sure you take a minute to read it through.  I give you over 50 ideas for you to use for your own summer bucket list, as well as a free printable you can use to make your own!

Summer Bucket ListSummer holidays start in just a week for us, and it is time for me to get ready! Summer holidays are my absolute favorite time – I love having the kids home with me every day…..and I am one of the few moms I am sure who actually hate when summer holidays are over and the kids have to go back to school!

Last year, we took some of our favorites from my “Summer Bucket List” post, and printed them onto cards that we had hanging up for ideas whenever we needed something to do. We tried to get through most of them but somehow summer just flew by and we didn’t get it all done.
