Happy Planner Weekly Spreads | October 2-8

Hello! This post is a couple days late, but I still wanted to share my weekly spreads with you all today!

First up is my Classic HP. This is one of my new favorite spreads! I have a lot of fun things planned for this week, including my mom’s birthday, a road trip, and the Scrapbook Expo, so I don’t need a lot of space to write lists, etc. I just went to town with the embellishments (which I’ve been hoarding for a long time!) and made this week pretty.Happy Planner Weekly Spread | JM CreatesHappy Planner Weekly Spread | JM CreatesHappy Planner Weekly Spread | JM Creates

Now for my Mini HP, I decided to use a few stickers and the lovely washi from The Planner Society’s September kit. I think it turned out cute too!Mini Happy Planner Weekly Spread feat. The Planner Society | JM CreatesThanks for stopping by today!heart_jen


Happy October!!

Hello! Welcome to October!

I think October is one of my very favorite months of the year. I’m excited because the Stamp & Scrapbook Expo is coming to my town later this week. I have been waiting {impatiently} since last year for it to come back! I’ll be sure to share my haul next week. Also, today is my sweet mom’s birthday, so we’ll be celebrating! Yay!Happy October! | JM CreatesHave a great week!heart_jen

It’s my Birthday! :)

Today is my special day… I’m going to spend the day doing the things I love, spending time with special people, and dreaming of the future. It’s time to make some new goals!


Mom. She’s strong. She’s sassy. She’s beautiful. She’s cool. She’s fierce. She’s a quick thinker. She’s my role model. She’s my biggest fan. I don’t know what I would do without her.

Happy birthday to my mom! xoxo

Perfect 10!


I just wanted to share a couple photos of my Jakey girl- she’s 10 years old today! She’s such a wonderful girl- so smart, pretty and wise. She makes this world a more fun place to be, for sure!  🙂

Scrapbook Sunday | Queen Protea

Hello! Happy Sunday…and the first day of daylight savings time. It’s a struggle to lose an hour of sleep, but it’s sooo nice to have an extra hour of daylight!

Today, I wanted to share a new layout. this layout was inspired by Wilna Furstenberg’s new adventure collection. I don’t ever remember seeing a Queen Protea flower until last year when I bought my mom some flowers for her birthday. They are so unique looking! When I saw these protea printables, I had to make a layout! And, of course, I added some little wooden birds to complete the page.  🙂

Thanks for stopping by!

33 | Birthday

Yep. It’s my birthday! I am excited to begin another year of life. I want to live life to the fullest. I am so lucky and grateful for the life I have been given.

And, yes, I still feel this excited when my birthday rolls around.  🙂


Birthday Time!

In just a few short days I will have another birthday!  🙂 This layout is from my birthday last year, and it’s crazy to think how much changes in a year. I can’t wait to see what 33 will have in store for me!

Have a great weekend!


Happy Birthday Jake!

Today my little Jake is 9 years old!! We adopted her as a tiny baby, and it’s been a wonderful ride seeing her grow and become so smart!

Perfect Ten

This little man is 10 years old today!! My mom picked him out, but we all loved him from the start. There is not a mean bone in his body. He is gentle, always waking up with a song in his heart. He is a great little companion. I love you Maxx!  ♥
