Free Filo Friday- Let’s go to the…

Hello Hello Hello! We meet again here in my happily embellished world.

What do think about when you think about upcoming holidays?

Food? Candy? Family?  How about holiday movies? It’s the time of year when awesome flix come to the theatre AND all of those super stop action holiday movies like Rudolf. Yes indeed, That is what I look forward to. The Grinch anyone? Yes.

With that in mind, I have created just for you and for FREE mind you, a little personal size list to keep track of all of those movies you want to see.

Ya know, maybe you can’t make it to the movie theatre and you have to wait for them to come out on streaming or that box full of DVDs in front of the grocery store. (This is not a sponsored post so no free plug ins my peeps. You know what I’m talking about.)

It’s been trendy for a while now, to turn one’s nose up at television. Me, I turn my nose right ahead forward to stare at the TV I admit it.

When I was growing up (that’s a wicked long time ago) my home had a large Zenith television. The set was large, the TV screen itself, not so much. We even had a remote control, that actually went “click”. And,everything was in black and white.

Regardless of this little wrinkle, I still watched “Flipper”, “Gilligan’s Island”, “My Favorite Martian” and “Mr. Ed” with rapt attention.

That’s how it starts ya know. First the black and white and a small list of channels. Then you get to see “The Wizard of Oz” at your cousin’s house on a color TV and Munchkin Land pulls you in with a gasp and a giggle. It was love, love of TV, love of stories.

All of these shows, stories and movies that we love are now at our fingertips. Any time I want to sing along with “Pitch Perfect” I can stream it. Do I need a laugh? Scan the channels for some “Three Stooges”. Is it Sunday? Uh, “The Walking Dead” is on, hello!  How can you find your favorites? Where can you look for something to watch?

A new website http://wheretowatch.com/ can help you find where it is that you want to watch.

Here is a  fun little video from the film and television industry to reminds us how Movies and TV shows bring us together. This is the anthem that runs through the core of WhereToWatch.com. Visit the site and find the content you already love.

I know there’s a whole world of people telling me to read, run, go do anything besides sitting in front of the television. But I love it. I love the storytellers who write these shows and make look forward to what’s coming up in a week. Or the writer who gives me that line that keeps me cranking along. In my case it would be “Frankly, I don’t give a damn.”

My suggestion is that you give it a try. See if the shows and movies you love are at your fingertips. I’m addicted and I’m ok with that. If you like it, feel free to share #wheretowatch .

Be Beautiful,

Maureen

Q&A Monday

Q & A Monday- Let’s talk books.

Hello all you wonderful ones, don’t you look gorgeous on this Monday?
What? You hate Monday? Well let’s make the most of it. Why don’t we and solve one of the world’s great problems?

Today, the question is: How on earth can I keep track of all the book recommendations folks give me. I write the title on a napkin and lose it, I scribble an author’s name then forget what on earth the name is for! Help me please, I’m so tired of bad books.

This question is one that I suffered with for so long. Happily (that’s me) I have two, yes two solutions.
Number one is electronic. It is Goodreads.com. If you haven’t joined, you must. There are so many good reads on this website (ha ha ha get it) that you will never read a bad book again. On this site (there’s a mobile app too) you can create list after list of books to read or ones you’ve read. It’s wonderful. You might even make some friends there. I have over the years. So, go there, as soon as you are done here.

For you my planner loving friends, another Freebie! On a Monday? What?
Yes my dears, a little quickie. It is in A5 size but easy enough to shrink down.
You want it? Click:Book recommend list

It’s nothing fancy because I know all of you cool planner nerds will decorate it yourselves. Am I right? Yes, I am.

Now, have a great Monday and…

Be Beautiful!

Hello Hello all my Filofaxing and journaling pals! This Friday we have a little grocery list.

grocery list insert

The one pictured here is in multicolor and sized to fit in the Filofax personal size. My personal pink Miss Finnie Finsbury is the model for these photos.

Grocery list laminated and used as a ruler

This particular version is made from blue card-stock and laminated so that a dry erase marker can be used, thus re-using this list as often as I like.

Now, here’s the best news. Today’s FREEBIE is right here.Groceries Ruler PersonalIf you like it, you can download it here :Groceries Ruler Personal

Next, the multi-colored and various other colors are available in my brand new Etsy shop PrintablePassion.
There you can also get a customized, laminated list similar to one shown above. Here is the link to that shop is

This is a brand new venture for me. My other shop, HappilyEmbellished is still open and enjoyable here’s the link. And the spin off of that shop Punkysrooster contains steampunk,goth and alternative jewelry and hair accessories. So in case you can’t find any printables to your liking, skip on over to my other shops and see what you might like.

Let me know what you think? Tell me if there are some special dividers, inserts or dashboards you are looking for. I’d love to do some custom work.

Be Beautiful,

Maureen

When I opened my Etsy shop HappilyEmbellished
my wish was to create beautiful accessories using sea glass.
I did just that. IMG_0048.JPGIMG_0094.JPG

IMG_0074.JPG
But, being one who likes to wear the odd or different piece now and then, I created some more hard edged piece; steam punk, goth, metal etc.
Like these

Now for the boring part. What ha e I learned from my first shop to my next?
1. Watermark my photos. 1a. Place said photos in a COMPLETELY separate folder.
2. Copy all product descriptions from one shop onto Notepad or WordPress abs SAVE it. 2a. Then when you are ready to post items in your new shop all you have to do is paste.
3. Same goes for your policies etc. Copy, save, paste.
4. If you’re moving items from one shop to another, make a print out of those items then you can check them off then delete from first shop.
5. Give yourself plenty of time for this transition.

Now, I hope you all come on over to PunkysRooster for your custom alternative bridal accessories and steampunk jewelry. Then come back to HappilyEmbellished for more colorful, ocean inspired accessories.
Wait, didn’t I say three shops?
Yup, one just for planners, organizers and Filofaxing : PrintablePassion.
There’s a few items in there now but January 1 it should be chock full of planner printables, dashboards, dividers etc.

Keeping watching here for coupons and special offers.

Be Beautiful.

Another glorious Monday is upon us. The sky is blue, the trees still have some beautiful colored leaves. Take a breath and enjoy.

Like always, I have a couple of questions peeking out of my inbox and this is the day and time to answer those brain busters.

Today’s question: “Maureen, why in the world do you have zombies in all of your photos?” “Yo, those zombies in your pix, they real or what?” “Miss, I find it peculiar that your photos include tiny bloody creatures along with your Filofaxes. What are these please?”

Yes my friends, there are an assortment of tiny zombie-like creatures prominent in photos of my workspace.

Such as the army protecting my Washi collection above. This photo appeared last month.

But why? Why tiny zombies? First, they were a gift from my dearest darling love. Second, have any of you seen the TV show on AMC The Walking Dead? I love that show. I’m pretty sure most of America loves that show as well. My tiny zombies keep me company on my desk while I work, and they’re a lot easier to photograph than the two pups who also keep me in line.

I really hope that answered my readers questions. I love your comments and questions and promise to answer them all.
For more pix of the zombies and my planners (and the puppies too) please follow me on Instagram

Be Beautiful,
Maureen
