How I use my Happy Planners


Hello, I wanted to share why I have 5 happy planners I have and use.  The bottom one is my memory planner, then I have my recipes book, and next is my classic size planner, and then my mini HP, and lastly my catch-all notebook.

So in memory keeping planner, I am going to go back and start scrapbooking the photos I have or things I want to document from 2017 – 2018.  I bought a canon shelphy printer so I can print my photos easily and use them in this Planner.

My recipe book I got on Amazon, and I also want to print off photos of the meals I make and add them to my recipe book.  Then when Ellie gets old enough and has a place of her own, I can give this her as a gift.

My classic size planner is my favorite to write in for my actual planner, and it was the first one I bought.  The only downside is I have been trying to downsize my purse and it makes it hard to carry around every day at work and when I go out, so I have had to carry a separate bag for my planner and accessories.

That’s where the Mini comes in handy.  I use this to carry in my purse and document important dates, todos, shopping list, and whatever I need access to every day or when I am out and about.

Since I switch back and forth between the classic and mini, I got tired of duplicating the fun or informational pages I wanted access to each day or monthly so I created my catch-all notebook.  I made this notebook using HP products.  In this notebook, a few of the things I keep are a journal made from an undated extension pack, list of bills, monthly goals, KiitoCreations craft log, and craft ideas to make or any other list I want to make.

My Top 3 Phone Photo Editing Apps


I am sitting here at a film class my husband is teaching and I thought I would write a blog post I haven’t in a while and I miss it.

I do not edit all of my photos that I put on Facebook.  I normally just edited the ones I put on my blog or if I am putting them on Instagram and when I do that I normally use the Instagram Gingham filter love the Matte look.

However my favorite iPhone Apps when I do edit my photos are:

  • A Beautiful Mess Love this app for adding text and little doodles, and boarders. Also love using it for collages.  This is a photo I edited with this app.IMG_6137.jpg
  • Snapseed is a great app for basic editing.
  • Square ready This app is great for adding white space around the photo.  I love this for my Instagram. IMG_5286_Fotor_Collage.jpg

Hello everyone I just got done taking Ellie’s 1 year photos for her birthday invitations so I thought I would share a before/after of a photo.  This is one of my shots:

DSC_0315-3 copy.jpgI use Lightroom 5 to edit my photos I love this editing program.  I was one of my best investments.  I prefer Lightroom over Photoshop for my photo editing.
