Currently July!

Hello July!

It's about 103 degrees outside my house right now. When my outside cats come in their fur is even hot. And they do nothing while outside except lay in the shade on the back porch. It is summer time in Alabama y'all! And that means the air is HEAVY. So I will just spend my time filling out my Currently July stuff!

Thanks Farley!

to Little Big Town!
Have you heard the new song they have out right now?
I know it's a little controversial, but it is also beautiful to listen to.
The group is also quite pretty, I must say:
Click on the photo to go listen to the song!

the colors in this poster set!
The photo does not do it justice, I must say. This was a test run for a set I have been updating.
Confession......I have had this set in my classroom and at my TpT store for a year! It's a four poster bundle and I love it.
So, I had this bright idea to make a companion set with some different items
like tools and job badges....
It was  just about practically finished and ready to print and upload to TpT so y'all could snag it...
I discovered I had used the WRONG color of turquoise.
Gah! I used a teal color instead of the bright turquoise.
So, yes, I spent a lot, a LOT of time fixing that.
But it's all done now and I love the result!
Advice: Print your posters at a copy company on good quality paper. It does make a difference and the cost is minimal when you think about how long they will last!

Yes, we are gong to Las Vegas next week, but it is also a vacation for us. We will be there from Wednesday until the following Tuesday.
We have a trip planned to the Grand Canyon, tickets to two Vegas shows, and really I hope to spend at least one day just laying by the pool- doing nothing!
Incidentally, the Sunday of our week in Vegas is our anniversary.
I am not telling you how many years we have been married but the number starts with an F....

Speaking of Vegas. Just look at this deliciousness!
Those are in the section inserts for my binder.
Here's the cover:
And a few inside looks:

It's all about organization people!
By the way, if you are going to Vegas, have you copied your session notes?
Here's a link where you can find them:

Yes, the suitcases we have are bright blue and WORN OUT.
Like falling apart worn out. We are not at the duct tape stage quite yet, but getting close.
I may have to spring for some new stuff before next week!

my shoes to get here already!
Look at this:
Yeah, I know. They better fit is all I can say....

Okay, well, let me just say this was easy. I am the CHAMP at organizing things. My closet is arranged by color. My canned goods in the cabinet are alphabetical. I keep post-it notes in my purse. I can find things that should have been lost a hundred years ago.
Need proof?
Our kitchen faucet is dripping.
The hubs tells me that he knows that faucet cost a LOT of money when we re-did the kitchen a few years back and it has a lifetime guarantee. The catch: we have to have the paper work and receipt.
Who did he think he was talking to?
I went to the filing cabinet and pulled put the folder called "Kitchen Remodel".
Handed him the receipt and original papers.
There you go!

Have a great July everyone.
Please say hello to me in Vegas- if you are coming.
I will be wearing those cute shoes!

and a button that looks like this:


  1. Ahhh-that's wicked hot! It rarely get's that hot up here in New England (and that humid). I hope you're staying cool! Congrats on your 'f' anniversary!

    1. Thanks Hailey! I totally ripped off the idea from Lucky Little Learners. Her binder cover is very similar and it's free on TpT! Thanks for stopping by!

  4. I want new luggage to and I love, love, love those shoes!! I went to the Grand Canyon last year and it was spectacular! I hope you have a great time with your family and hope to see you in Vegas!

    1. Hi Melissa! We are trying to decide the bet way to get to the Grand Canyon. We had planned to drive, but I just do not want to. I am way too old to have to sit for that long and drive. Sitting in a bus might work. We are also considering a helicopter tour! My shoes should arrive today!

  5. Happy soon-to-be anniversary! Mine starts with an f too, and it's today :) I hope you have fun in Vegas, and I cannot wait to hear all about it!

  6. I am so jealous you are going to Vegas. I can't wait to read all about it! I've missed you!

  7. I want your binder cover and inserts! They turned out super cute. :) Any chance you'd like to email them to me?

    I am possibly not taking a binder with me (gasp!) because I'm traveling a loooooong way - from Dubai, no kidding - and suitcase space and luggage weight is at a premium. Crazy airlines and their 1 suitcase limit! Ha!! I will be putting the binder together after the fact when I return home and taking notes on my computer during sessions.

    I will be in most of your sessions you pictured except for Fix Your Brand which I was really considering but opted for a different session. I will look for your button when I go! I should be wearing mine as well.

    1. Hi Susan! Thanks for visiting! The inserts were so easy to make- just pretty backgrounds. The circles are some I created - you just have to play with them until you get the size just right, then you can change the colors to match whatever you are making. Hope to see you in a session!
