Gifts from the heart!

 

Hello!!!

I hope everyone enjoy their holidays!!! I thought for my first post of the year 2015, is to share the creations I did for my family and friends Christmas gifts. If you follow me on facebook and/or Instagram you notice that I been sharing my DIY gifts, unfortunately I had to stop because some of my lovely friends and family follow me either one or both of these social media.

 

Now, that my family and friends has their goodies, let’s get started:

 

I made a few frames with quotes and added embellishment to the frame. I thought it will make a lovely home décor gift.

So here you have it, 3 ideas to make any time of the year gifts like birthdays, Christmas, valentines and so fourth.  These gifts didn’t take long to make, either way I love their reactions when they open their gifts. I hope you enjoy my creations.

Taking back my life. Even if my world is upside down, it will be an organized upside down world.

Hi everyone,

I know it’s been awhile since I posted my Monday, weekly workouts. It’s no surprise that I been derailed. Being that it’s the summer (BBQ’s, Birthdays, beaches, amusement parks, etc.), the everyday responsibilities (working, appointments, home cleaning, cooking, everyday essentials shopping, etc.) and the unfortunates emergency (hospitals, deaths, family crisis, etc.). It’s so easy to derail yourself from your goals.

One of my biggest problem and mainly the reason I haven’t sat down and scheduled my time (even if there has been an emergency). I was never like this not too long ago I would schedule, write everything down and I always been on point of everything. Unfortunate I let a little nasty depression turn my world upside down. Well not anymore, I’m taking back my life. Even if my world is upside down, it will be an organized upside down world…haha.

**First order of business, Monday weekly workout will be back on 7/8/13 with another post my family weekly workout. **

Instead of doing a Monday weekly workout today, I decided to dedicate this post on how I’m organizing myself (this would be the first of many but it will be posted on a different day, the day will be coming soon**) I know I have to schedule myself in order to reach my many goals, which one major goal is to lose weight and improve my health.  So here it goes my first step:

First, I’ve taken a piece of paper and pen and wrote down the days of the week. From there I wrote the daily routine of the week which is work schedule and hours, workout routine, Emily learning path, Joey work hours and schedule, cleaning, coupons, and church this is my week overview (photo shown below).

It take only a paper & a pen

I wanted to hang my week overview where either I or Joey can see. It’s great when I write my week in details on my planner. Now I wanted to make it look nice, so I made a template on excel, decorated it and color coded it for that particular person such as Emily is pink, I’m purple and Joey is blue. Now it’s hanging above my desk on a bulletin board (photo show below).

weekly overview Weekly overview

Last of scheduling myself, I write my weekly schedule on my planner (which I made). Keep in mind some is already pre-written in my planner. My planner consists of a monthly two page overview and a week on two pages. Everything that I write on my planner is color coded; I find it is easier to find what I’m looking for. My color code is red for bills, pink is for Emily, Purple is anything that pertains to me, Blue is Joey, Orange is Birthdays, Lavender is for Little Jomie Creations, my blog and youtube (photos are show below). I write everything else in pencil and black ink for important information that I don’t want to erase easily.

For an added note: I just wrote and overview for Lil Jomie Creations, this blog and youtube. All of my details and information in a separate binder but that is for another day, another post.

****Please note that what I have been writing is my personal view you can either change certain things to benefit yourself. Everyone is different, only you know what works for you and if you’re doing this for the first time trial and error will help you make the best schedule for yourself****

 

If you have any tips that you would like to share I would love to hear them, I’m open minded, I’m willing to try. I’m always looking for the best way to perfect my system (even though we know their is nothing perfect…hahaha but a system that will work for me and my loved ones).

Happy Scheduling,

Jomarie
