How many times have you downloaded a free printable only to be a little disappointed with the quality once you printed it? I feel ya! I’ve been there myself a few times. You love those pretty displays and the images that you see presented by the designers, and you wonder exactly how to print perfect printables for yourself. What is the magic technique that they are using to get them so vibrant?
Sometime last year, I started to notice this new trend. I was scrolling through Pinterest looking at all the different planners that are available. About halfway down the page, I noticed this very pretty, hand-drawn, calendar. Well, naturally I had to check it out. This quickly led me into the world of bullet journalling. If you are unfamiliar with bullet journalling, let me just tell you that it is so much fun! I love seeing my bullet journals come alive. So, I thought that I would share with you some of my bullet journal ideas, and how to get started.

In the event of my death – free Printable
Not long ago, my uncle (whom I shall refer to as “A”) suffered a severe stroke. Although he has not yet made a full recovery, we were thankful that he survived it. However, the many months following the stroke were incredibly difficult for my aunt (whom I shall refer to as “B”), and not just because of the health issues. You see, “A” had always handled the finances, bills, and what not. While, “B” just did her job and spent money as needed.
I wanted to take the time to show you a few easy craft projects that can be done with some of my free printables. So I thought, what better way to get started but to show you how to create your very own tear away notepads. You know the kind – similar to the standard sticky notes. (minus the sticky). These DIY tear away notepads are incredibly easy to make.
Making your own books, notebooks, and binders can be a great hobby. I love to create my own customized binders and journals. However to do so, I needed a good bookbinding press. Unfortunately, they cost at least $100 for a cheap one, and up into the thousands for a high quality press. Of course, being a typical DIYer, I decided to make it myself. If you want to be able to create beautiful books yourself, I can show you how to make a bookbinding press for just pennies on the dollar.
