Five for Fri… Saturday and Currently!

Yeah, so this is getting to be a habit, posting on a Saturday. Apologies!

So, I’ve been getting the urge to be all kinds of crafty recently. From gift tag giveaways, washi-decorated candles and decorating my planner pages each week, I’m washi crazy! 😀

Did you hear what I said about washi crazy? The newest additions to my collection. Plus, some stickers for my planner.

Sunrises. Two this week while I was waiting for the bus to work. (And yes, I’m up that early.)

I’m attempting 2 Photo a Day challenges this month – one is Filofax Photo-a-Day May (#filofaxphotoadaymay on instagram) and the Teacher Photo-a-Day Challenge (#padteacherchallenge). The photos above are from the first 3 days of the Filofax Photo-a-Day (and yes, I’m cheating, because my planner is not technically a Filofax… shush!)

Slide5Tell me you’re picking up the trend here…!

I’ve just finished stamping my own masking tape – which was a trial tonight to see how it turned out. I need to invest in some new inks and stamps for it to work better (and I might try tissue paper and double-sided tape, too, at some point), but this was quick and easy. It’s still drying in the kitchen!

(Can’t buy anything until June though… I’m doing a No-Spend May. Which means no spending on things I don’t really need. Like stickers. And washi tape. And stamps. And ink… You get the idea!)

And finally, I’m linking up with Farley for this month’s Currently!

Listening to The Mummy… well, it’s just finished, but it was on when I was typing this up! I love this movie. I can quote it and I still laugh at all the jokes. It’s just one of those movies for me!

Loving my Kikki-K planner. You guys are probably sick of hearing about it, but it’s totally keeping me organised and on task and has for the whole month. This is unheard of for me. Combined with my Erin Condren Teacher Planner, I’m becoming super organised. Sometimes! ❤

Thinking that I don’t want to start thinking about writing reports. My school’s timeline kicks in from next week. Which is depressing.

Wanting to buy new ink and stamps so I can make more washi tape! But I can’t, because I’m on a No Spend May. And I’m going to stick to it. Just to prove that I can have self-control (when I normally have ZERO self control… wish me luck!).

Needing to save money. See above. But I want to try and buy an apartment in the next 18 months and I desperately want to visit my best friend and her family in Canada in December. Save, save, save!

Surprise! Most of you may know Alison from Teaching Maths with Meaning, but if you don’t, she’s totally wonderful. She is my maths guru – seriously, she has some fabulous resources and ideas on her blog and she teachers Prep to boot!

And that’s all from me, tonight! Have a WONDERFUL weekend, folks!

  1. I love The Mummy, too! I love that romance for some reason. Those two together are great. I hear you on needing to save money. I need to remember that I don’t HAVE to buy everything I want for the new apartment. 🙂

  2. Aww thanks for the shout out Stef! That was such a wonderful surprise! I would have to say that basically that whole blog post was about Washi Tape! Good luck with no spend May – I probably should do it too – can I buy birthday presents online still?

    Enjoy your Sunday!

    • You’re so welcome, Alison!

      With no spend May, birthdays, bills, food, etc aren’t counted. (Or at least I don’t count them.) Because I’m such a horribly impulsive person when it comes to buying things this month I’m just counting the things I’d buy because I felt like it (i.e.: stuff for school, craft supplies, food I probably don’t need to eat, etc!).
