In my Erin Condren....

I can't believe it's been this long since my last post!!! My bad! These are my pages in my Erin Condren for this past week:

I am really loving the color combo for May...I'm gonna miss it. I think the color combo for June is Orange/blue. 

The "Weekend" banner is a freebie from Inspired Blush (blogspot). I made the pink tassel myself.

These are the supplies I used. I bought these on my last shopping adventure!! I found the Spritz circles at Target. Washi is from Target, Hobby Lobby and Annie's Paper Boutique. "Choose Happy" is from Michael's $1 spot. Stickers are from Hobby Lobby. 

Have a wonderful Saturday!!!

Bible Journaling: Your Comforts Delight My Soul

Good Thursday to you! I'm excited because it's MY Friday!

 When I read this bible verse, I thought it was a perfect one to read during my days that are filled with so much anxiety. I am a self proclaimed "STRESSER"....I know that's not a good thing, I should turn all my worries over to God, but it's something I have to remind myself to do. 

The good thing: it seems I have learned how to live with stress!!! NOW, I didn't say I have learned how to deal with all the stresses of life, but sadly, I stress about everything. 

For the past few months, I have been handling things in a different way. How? I pray, and pray, and then pray some MORE!

In life we have issues, stress, anxieties, tragedies, etc..........but we need to remind ourselves, I NEED to remind myself, that by turning to God, we can take comfort in knowing that HE is there for us, and will carry us through it. 

Psalm 94:19

 "In the multitude of my anxieties within me,
Your comforts delight my soul."

Supplies used: paper was from a small tablet of journaling sheets, heart Washi from Target's $1 spot. Kraft letters: Target $1 spot, tiny letter stickers: Basic Grey, mini stamps from Michael's, the word "your" are letter rub-ons by Making Memories. Misc.-Other letter stickers.

Have a wonderful Thursday!

Bible Journaling: Hebrews 6:19

I absolutely LOVE this verse! I have seen it a few times from other sources just this week. For me, it confirms God's message to remain firm and secure in our Hope and Faith. 

Hebrews 6:19--"We have this hope as an anchor for the soul, firm and secure. It enters the inner sanctuary behind the curtain."

For this I used supplies I have, alphabet stickers, a graphic printed from Google, and the black heart is from Target's dollar spot ( I love THAT spot). They are called Chalkboard Stickers. The tab at the top is also from Target. Background was colored with chalk.

Nothing But Sunshine

We've been getting lots of rain these past few weeks but I am NOT complaining!! God knows south Texas needs lots of rain for the crops, animals, and water sources.

We had an awesome storm on Friday night. I was outside taking pictures with my tablet and spotted this enormous cloud....come to find out, after the fact, we were under a Tornado Warning. 
Thank God we were safe and there was no damage. I did get a great shot though:

But since then we have had nothing but beautiful sunshine. So that's my theme in my Filofax pink Calipso for this week. The stickers are from WalMart, they were part of an Easter set. The "Today I'm doing this" stamp is by Recollections.And that big Sun cutout was actually from a Bath & Body flyer I got in the mail. I thought it was so cute I kept it! The polka dotted washi is from Hobby daughter gave me samples. The yellow hold reinforcements are from Annie's Paper Boutique (online)

Thanks for visiting!!! Have an awesome Sunday!!!

This Week in my Erin Condren

Hey there!!! Thought I'd pop in today and show you this week in my Eric Condren Life Planner. 

I had so much fun using some washi tape from a cute Pocket Letter I recieved in a swap. It's the aqua one at the bottom with cute words on it!  She also sent me the cute handmade tag and owl stickers!**If you scroll down you can see the entire Pocket Letter an all it's contents!

The purple washi is from my daughter's stash. I was visiting her at college and saw she had THE cutest chevron washi tape. She said she found them at Hobby Lobby! So we grabbed some gift cards from our wallets and i started taking samples!!

And here it is....all ready to go!
