Planner pages and wood polish.

Oh man, this is the longest week ever for me.  Nothing bad, just looooong.  The weekend can't get here soon enough!! 

I wanted to show you before and after pages with my planner.

These are my decorated pages for this week.  All nice and clean and ready for the week ahead.  I list appointments and things to do on the right with a small box to the left, so that I can check or X it off after I've finished the item.

Here is last week.  I have a few items that I started with the week (ortho, Petco, library books, etc) but as the week goes on, I add items to the check list as needed for that day.  Then on the left side of the day, I make notes about things that went on that day for Project Life journaling.  That way, when I'm ready to work on my Project Life layout, I can flip to that page in my planner and see my notes.

I also have post it notes all over my finished week, shopping lists, blog notes things like that, but I took them off so you could see my checklists :)

The other thing I wanted to talk to you guys about was wood polish.  I found a recipe online using  1 cup of olive oil and 1/2 cup of lemon juice.  You mix it up really well in a bottle and then, using a cloth, dust your furniture.  It worked great!  The main thing I loved about it was that it's not harmful.  Guess who came into our bedroom and started licking our bed?  Yep, Dirk.  But I didn't have to worry about it, because it's all natural :)  Just thought I'd pass this along to you guys!! 

I hope you're having a great week and that you have an awesome weekend eve!  I'll see you tomorrow with a new card.  Thanks for stopping in today.
