Silhouette Mint & Planning for a "dry" January!

Hello crafty friends,

Happy 2016!

I hope my blog finds you well and rested after the festivities of the season.

I've had an Arc planner for a couple of years now, I use it as my day to day diary and so far haven't used it to set goals etc.  It's a large one, its A4 in size and normally resides somewhere in my kitchen, open at the current week.

This year I will try and use it more wisely and decorate it like those "crafty planning/organised/goal setting kinda ladies" do!  I've always wondered how they have time to make, organise and decorate their beautiful planners and get the jobs done, we'll see if I can work it out!

Not wanting to rush in with lots of time consuming bits and bobs, like stickers and charts and various lists that I could download from the internet, I thought I'd start with a couple of Silhouette Mint stamps, easily made for myself to stamp into my planner.

Here is my first stamp, it's a special one for a little goal that I've set myself.....


.....kinda funny, isn't it!  

Here in the UK the government regularly try and scare us half to death about how many units of alcohol we should and shouldn't consume in a week.  They have a campaign running in January each year where they encourage us to have the whole month alcohol free!

One of my goals for 2016 is to try this out so I made myself a little stamp.  At the end of each day, I can give myself a little stamped reward in my planner - lets see if that works!

It's a little early yet but I couldn't resist stamping it in on todays date...


...afterall, I'm well settled with my glass of soda water with a dash of ginger & lemongrass cordial, it's refreshing, warming and perfect for this time of year.

I've got another great idea for my planner, which I will share with you when I've got a moment!

Until then, I hope you get some time to craft, plan, set some goals and get organised for a fantastic 2016!
