Sound Off: Superbowl 50 Halftime

The Pepsi Halftime is officially over. Well it’s been over for a while and at this current moment the Degnver defense is running the field. It’s now a blowout game, but it could quickly escalate into one if the Panthers do not score in the 3rd quarter and they lose focus. So many teams have lost it simply by letting their emotions get the best of them. Anything could happen. It’s not over till it’s over.

Plan With Me: February 1st – 7th

IT’S SUPER BOWL WEEK! I have dedicated my spread this week to Super Bowl 50 using a football sampler kit from the Etsy shop Lillie Henry. Last week, although I had no accompanying video, I love the way the spread turned out. It was bright and vibrant.

For this week I could have recreated the spread I did for the week of September 7th-13th, but I decided to do a different football spread. This spread is my first no white space spread, ok minus the sidebar.

For those that do not know planner lingo, no white space is the entire layout covered in stickers. Now don’t be alarmed, these stickers are typically checklists combined with full/half boxes, and washi strips. You do not need a big bank of a massive Etsy collection to achieve a no white space spread.

Majority of this spread is washi tape/ I used some brown  and green striped that I had to fill the boxes. I didn’t have any full box stickers since the ones from LillieHenry were cut like page flags. I also didn’t want to bulk up the page since I used a printable checklist on top so I interchanged between the two washis to complete the spread.

I love the adhesive border on the bottom of this spread plus the ‘Super Bowl Sunday’ sticker that I used to completely cover the 7th. I was thinking of layering the border, but the ‘Touchdown’ border just happened to work. To fill the white space I layered black washi and cut a flag in the border and on either side I put a football player.

My sidebar has been great for keeping track of my homework and what I’d like to clean for the week. I’m not crowding my weekly spread and there’s not a specific day for the sidebar. The sidebar is great for extras that you have.

I love the silhouette of the football players. The previous spread I created had gold football players, but I really love that these are black which worked well with the border. As usual, links to stickers/washi used will be below.

Sound Off: Sad Night for Steeler Nation

As a Steelers fan, I couldn’t be more upset that our road to the Super Bowl has come to an end. With it being Superbowl 50 and Steelers winning Super Bowl 40, I thought we could’ve went to the top. The road was similar to our journey back then. The 6th seed, the under dog. The one no one thought would make it and we went  on to beat the Seattle Seahawks.

Again that’s history. We could’ve made major history because I truly believed we would not only beat the Broncos but go and beat the Patriots. We could have not only won Super Bowl 50, but won our 7th championship. There’s always next year, right?

Yet, the real highlight was the battle between the Bengals and the Steelers. Let’s recap the other scores of the Wildcard Games:

  • Kansas City Chiefs vs. Houston Texans | 30-0
