My Munchkins & Their Shows

Heyyyyy everybody! So my life has literally become overrun with the shows my children watch. I can’t even tell you how many toys we’ve bought of these characters, the kids clothes and even planning for their bedrooms. Ugh🤐

Like for instance my son Elijah, he’s totally in love with Daniel tiger and Blaze and the monster machines. We got him a tablet for his birthday and OMG I can’t take it. 😨 I downloaded the Daniel tiger app. What a big mistake that was!!!!! All he does is play the damn theme song over and over all day. If i could pull out each one of my locs one by one i would. Lol 😂  One thing that I love about Daniel tiger is the fact that it’s based off of the former show Mr.Roger’s neighborhood. All the characters names are of the characters on the Mr.Roger’s show.

Now my daughter Léa on the other hand she’s super into Peppa pig AAANNNNNDDDDDDD Daniel Tiger!!! 

😣 nooooooooooooooooooo(Long dramatic scream on the inside)

In my house it’s like an on-going marathon. They have literally watched every season of Peppa and Daniel x10. A bit mundane if you ask me.😐

Peppa_Pig

When I first saw Peppa pig it was the most annoying show ever, but it grew on me.

But now I can literally sing every song on all 3 shows.

Look don’t judge me…..I’m just a big kid inside.

 

All in all i actually like watching these shows with them even though, I complain about them.

Okay I’m going to stop ranting about these damn cartoons now!

My Chunky Mermaid TN

Ok so i was so tired of not being able to find what I wanted in a midori/fauxdori travelers notebook. So I took it upon myself to give me what I wanted. Im the type that wants to put my entire life into a midori. I dont want to have to carry multiple TN or have to switch the notebooks depending on whats going on. So after I saw the ZenKraft Mermaid’s Tale Field Notes Bi-Fold: by Yochanan Israel. It inspired me to make my own.

I was so determined to find this Mermaid tail leather that is basically non existent, and when I tell you I searched far and wide for it I searched far and wide. I love Yochanan Israel’so work and I have a quad fold zencraft travelers notebook from him I reviewed it awhile back. I’ll link it below.

My NEW MTN!!!! – http://wp.me/p4MwJ9-5K

In this Chunky Mermaid TN I made it has 8 rainbow elastic insert strings and can definitely hold a lot more than 8 notebooks if need be. It is a trifold travelers notebook with 2 elastic closure bands to hold all the goodness in.

Ok So…. enough with all the extra details let’s get too this Chunky Mermaid I made………..

Here she is!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I bought leather, cut the size I wanted, glued it with leather glue to make sure it was double sided and then added rainbow elastic string. I bought the string and crystal charm at Michael’s and ordered the leather online. Yea i did my thing on this TN and I’m not afraid to say it. Here is what is inside. Each notebook I bought had blank covers, I also bought a pvc clear zipper pocket and 2 folder pockets.

The first part of my TN is a Dashboard to keep all sticky notes and whatever I want to keep there. The next is a Notes and common place book where I keep notes and random things. The last notebook is where I keep DIY beauty, bath and household products. Which I will start making post about at a different time. So be on the look out!!

The following notebooks are a DIY wine, ales & spirits book. There are some folders, to-do book and a hobonichi journal I made myself on a small grid notenook I bought from Japan.

The red notebook is a  Daily journal/diary. Next is a blank calendar I decorated fabulously.

The All Things Me notebook is basically everything that I’m kind of doing like my workout routine, TV series I’m watching and whatever else going on in my life. Also pictured above is the PVC pocket insert I bought to keep all stickers and stencils.

Last is a craft paper notebook that I turned into a family photo album that I can add to and take with me no matter where I am.

I love my Chunky Mermaid TN and I hope you guys did too.

Xoxo- Patrice💋

Never Give Up!

No matter what happens in life. Don’t let situations or depression get you down. If you’re feeling down try everything you can to pull yourself out of whatever you’re going through. I may feel like its too hard to do so but you’re strong enough to do anything. If you need to find a new hobby, go for a walk or even try to speak to someone you love. Just know, no matter what you are going through you don’t have to do it alone. So try to smile more or do things that make you smile. If you don’t here it often i’ll say it to you, I love you!! Don’t ever give up on yourself or your happiness!

My NEW MTN!!!!

I am elated to have been able to receive this Midori style traveler’s notebook. I created my own before i had this one and it did the job wonderfully but i really like the leather and all the room in this new one i got from my sister (Below)

IMG_4154

Thats the charm i have for my notebook but you can go out and buy them from joAnns, Micheal’s and hobby lobby

IMG_4156

Its big but not to big it has multiple sections and places to put stuff

I”M IN LOVE!!!!!

(Just Don’t tell my husband) lol

So It’s a simple notebook system, in the quiet and refined style that the Japanese do well. There’s a thick tar colored leather cover inside there are elastics that hold the pieces inside as well as wrap around the entire journal. You can swap in different notebooks and other accessories to customize it to your needs. It’s designed to be personalized, portable, and long-lasting. Once a notebook is filled, it can be slipped off and swapped for a new blank one. It’s only the paper notebooks that have to be replaced, not the whole journal itself.

IMG_4181

I decided to customize mine with mostly custom notebooks ,a graph-lined notebook, calendars, to-do list, business notebooks… etc. That way, I would have a place for thoughts, inspiration, organization and i’m thinking about keeping a daily journal in it as well. I imagine it to be a cross between a Filofax and an ordinary journal, versatile enough to warrant my taking it everywhere, and therefore capable of actually being a kind of ongoing scrapbook of my life. Like some kind of adventure journaling!

Okay I know, …… you guys just want me to just open it already so you can explore all inside. Ok, lets see……

IMG_4159

It has 2 main sections and two slightly smaller inside flaps.

The first section i wiI go over will be to the right with all the cupcakes on it.

This section is basically the notes section.

IMG_4160

This first insert was made by me every single piece of it holds recipes for cakes, cupcakes and goodies for my soon to be custom cake bakery!

On the inside flap it holds a grid notebook i made for little notes.

IMG_4168

This mini insert/folder holds a copy of my menu and order contract for my business.

This folder was made by muah as well.

IMG_4169

This Notebook insert is grid paper and along with the others i made this one as well

IMG_4172

This notebook holds all of my bakery business plans. This note book is taller i just took the picture that way

This one is a notebook with washi tape.

IMG_4173IMG_4174

Both of the above notebooks are for different kinds of notes or ideas and yes i made them too

The Left Side is calendar, schedules, to-do list etc.

IMG_4163

I made everything on this side as well.

IMG_4176

IMG_4177

IMG_4179

A folder that holds different papers i need.

IMG_4165

My Daughters Luau Birthday Hat

I’m sooo in love with vintage things. So I told myself when I have a child I would make him or her one of those vintage birthday hats that tie on. I thought the whole idea of that was soo amazing. Once I even saw some at an antique store and fell in love even more. It’s something that they would always be able to keep and it’s just so adorable. So
I had a beautiful daughter in 2012 which made this even more possible. Sunday will be her second birthday and the theme is A Bubble Guppies Luau! One day browsing Pinterest I hit the jackpot with this piece of inspiratione3058c376161b341fecd2febc8dec58c So once I saw this I knew I had to make this. Soon you will see that I like big, all out there, glitzy and a eye turner things. So here are my pics of the hat I made for my daughter’s birthday on Sunday.

Isn’t this Awesome!!

My hat came out really amazing a lot more character if you ask me. It fits perfect and I had to fight to get it off of her. She loves it I cant wait to take pictures. She will definitely be taking this off after it’s all over and it will be waiting to meet her at the age of twelve before she ever gets her little hands on this again. I’m Soooo EXCITED!!!!!!!
