• We Manage What We Monitor…

    Have you heard this saying before? “We Manage What We Monitor.” Or maybe you’ve heard Aristotle’s saying “We are what we repeatedly do.” I absolutely believe that the more we monitor and track things, the more likely we are to do the behavior, which is why I love this Goal and Habit tracker insert. Back in January, I was pretty diligent about tracking my five habits that I was trying to implement – that was before I had even heard of Tula Xii. But then I stopped tracking, and guess what happened. Yep, I stopped doing the things… So here I am in June trying to re-implement those habits (and…

  • It’s time to make yourself a priority…

    As women, we often don’t take enough time for ourselves… Many of the women in our community wear many hats: wife, mom, business owner, employee, coach, chauffeur… It can be easy to put ourselves at the very end of the line when it comes to priorities. I’m not saying we should always be first…just that there should be some balance, and that we have to learn to take time for ourselves. I know that I can get overwhelmed just by the sheer number of people in our house, and even though the loudness might be all happy sounds, it drains me. Thankfully, my husband has learned over the years that…

    How to Make a Butterfly Bookmark Using a Tula Xii Deco Kiss Set

    I’ve never claimed to be crafty, but I love the Deco KISS sets offered by Tula Xii… So I enlisted the help of my daughter to find something that we could use these beautiful papers to create. Bonus points for giving us something to do together! That’s sometimes hard to do with a tween. 😉 She’s finished with virtual school for the year (hallelujah!) so I’m hoping she will continue to find more projects for us this summer. Our first project is making these adorable Butterfly Bookmarks. Can you tell that she also is an avid reader? She made a bunch of these bookmarks knowing that she has plenty of…

    Choosing the Perfect Cover for Your Lifestyle

    Plan your dream life, beginning with the cover that embodies your evolving lifestyle. The first step to choosing your new Tula Xii Lifestyle Organizer is deciding which size organizer will work best for your lifestyle. That might mean you have different sizes for different areas of your life, too, so don’t feel like you have to stick with one size for everything. Our organizers come in three sizes – Small (A6 4 x 5.75), Medium, (B6 – 5 x 7), and XL (7 x 9.75). We have a printable guide for you to use to help select the right size for you. I personally use the small as my wallet,…

  • Something old, something new…

    Well, it’s been a hot minute since I’ve sat down to write a blog post. I can’t imagine why that has been. 🤣 Covid. Virtual school. Opening a storefront restaurant in the midst of a pandemic. Remote working. Blended family challenges. Did I mention opening a restaurant? Haha. It’s been a wild ride, that’s for sure. I do plan to write more about that later. Honestly, it’s still a pretty crazy time for us, but I wanted to share my latest news with you all. I obviously juggle a lot of things…but one thing that helps keep me somewhat sane is my planner. I’ve purchased different brands over the years,…
