October ARC Planner Pages

I just thought I would share with you all my October pages.  I tried to decorate them with a Halloween theme this month, because, well, I love Halloween.  This year is a bit more tame than previous years.  This move thing has really put a damper on any sort of free time fun that I may have enjoyed for Halloween in the past.  But, the house stuff is over now.  Until the very next day, then another "surprise" befell us.  Read on…I'll explain in a few pics.
For this page I had a lot going on, so I added this printable I found online to chart out all of the things I needed and wanted to do that day.  Then I just folded it up and stuck it in the planner.  It was out of the way, but I could still access the whole page when I needed to.  Don't you love how the ARC is so easily customized?  If you want to get this lovely bit of organizational heaven, you can find the printable here at The Creativity Exchange.
 On this one, I has made a list at work of things I needed to do and remember using my little notepad that I made to carry in my pocket at work.  I brought it home and stuck it in my planner.  I also had seen somewhere on the net, about using post its folded, with a little "tab" sticking out to write the topic of what was inside.  It hides what you wrote, leaves you a "title" of what is in there, but is folded so it doesn't take up a lot of room.  To apologize for not having the source.  I'll try to find it and edit the post with the information of who came up with this.  But it worked and it was excellent for what I wrote on the inside.  :)
 My eyeball tape page…I love this one because it was very colorful.  On this one I was playing with a section on the right side for my meal planning and blog planning needs.  I have a blog planner but it is big and cumbersome, so I am entertaining other ideas for this planning.  I am not sure what to do at this point.  Just testing things at this time.  

Do you see the drawing on Saturday?  A tree fell on my son's mobile home during a severe rain/wind storm.  It landed perfectly onto his bedroom, crushing the back end of the home.  He was in the kitchen, having just got home from work.  Had he been there, it would have crushed him.  HE IS OK, and that is all that matters!!!  He usually comes home from work and takes a nap, since he has to get up at 3 am.  He hadn't done it yet.  I am so thankful that my boy is OK!!!  So, now we are trying to clean up and get the insurance folks out to see it and help us out.  There was so much damage that they are calling it a catastrophe, and calling in other adjusters from other states…too many people have had this problem.  I haven't heard of injuries though, and that is GOOD!  

So, I will be late on my tutorial that I keep saying I am going to do, since we are busy helping him.  He is staying with us, since we moved we have ROOM now!  That is a blessing!!  The project I am doing is cut out and ready.  When I get a minute to breathe, I will get it done for you.  Thanks for being patient.
This is the current week.  I am trying another layout for blog planning.  I started working on this page last Sunday, so it is more full now.  I'm not digging the blog planner side, as you can see, it has room for one post, not two, and I wanted to do this one today.  Hummmmm…I will keep working on it. 

That's all I have today.  Have a great day.  Stay safe.  Have a Happy Halloween.  And…

Stay Crafty, My Friends!!
