Robin Williams – A tribute

11 Aug

I know a lot of people are going to be posting stuff about the incredibly sad death of Robin Williams.  I wanted to share some of my favorite moments from movies that are part of me and part of who I have become.  Ha it actually might explain a couple of things.

Aladdin:  Robin was of course was known as the Genie but seriously how much of this do you think the Disney people actually wrote??

We will never have a friend like you!

Popeye: Sleep Tight Swee’Pea’

Always eat your spinich


Because we have been there – Thank you Mrs. Doubtfire

While these are clips from only a select few of his movies.  Robin Williams was a comedic genius and will be missed by the world.   Of all of the celebrities that have died this one is hitting me the hardest.  Maybe because this time it wasn’t an accidental drug overdose.   Somebody who brought so much joy to so many people had so many demons that he couldn’t find peace with himself on this earth.  Rest in Peace Robin.


Weekly Coupon Fun

2 Aug Organize

I am really bummed that I missed out on FIVE inserts in last week’s paper.  I wasn’t as organized as I typically am so this week I am going to start a little earlier than Sunday morning when I typically leave for the store by 9:30am.

My biggest source of coupons is from Swagbucks, remember that post from yesterday?  In case you missed it here is the link <SWAGBUCKS POST>.  Yup, you get to use the coupon and then get 10 swagbucks for every coupon you redeem.  It’s like double dipping.

So I print my coupons, if I have inserts I go through those.  I plan my meals for the week and make my list then it’s off to the store I go.  Remember to make your nifty grocery list pocket to keep all of your coupons together <Grocery List Pouch> I try really hard to actually go through the store in order and try to make sure I don’t miss anything so that I don’t have to back track.   Yeah well that never works.  On top of going through a Super Target twice I then have to go to two other stores.  It takes forever for me to get all of the shopping done, but I do have almost $50 a week so that’s a huge win in my book!!!

So now it’s time to get working on my list for tomorrow.  Have a great weekend everybody!!!

Introducing the Simply Elegant Wedding invite collection – now on Etsy

19 Jul

I have been working on some new things, clearly.    I also have some other great blog ideas so I’m hoping that some time will free up soon.  HA like that’s going to happen, watch for a blog post about managing a busy life.  :)

I wanted to share a new collection of invitations that I did for my Etsy site, WarmTidings.   Next steps will be to create Thank yous, and other printable items available soon.  So my dear readers, please if you know anybody getting married and needing invitations or anything else, I work for cheap.

Now on to the good stuff.  I wanted to come up with an invitation that wasn’t really theamy, yes I just made up a word.  The thing that I love about these is that I can customize the color to whatever you want it to be.    The one thing I have noticed when you go to a printer or an invitation place, you are stuck with what they have and you can’t customize the wording.  Or if you can customize the wording you can’t customize the color.  And that’s where I come in.

I will create an invitation in less an 12 hours (typically) and send you a JPG file with the invitation to your exact specifications.  You can print them yourself or I can have them printed for you and they are done.

Finally, the moment you have been waiting for,  here is Simply Elegant

New Save the Date: Now on Etsy

28 Jun


I wanted to create something that had the menu board, inspired by the first wedding invite that I did.  Once I got the idea in my head I had to go hunting through my digital embellishments to figure out what I had and what I didn’t.   Turns out that I didn’t have any of it.   So it was time to create.

Save the Date Bistro


Using my friend Google image search I got ideas for the the menu board and the table and chairs.   It was for sure fun to create and it really took me out of my normal template type card.  I hope you like it.

Be sure to LIKE my facebook page The Crafty Organizer to see new items as I create them on Etsy.  More ideas for Weddings, Birthdays, and announcements coming soon.
