New Year’s Resolutions — Plus Free Printable

Do you think New Year’s Resolutions are cliché? In the past, I’ve made lists of goals but usually wind up burying them with everyday life within 2 weeks. Eat more vegetables, less screen time, enjoy the moment, put down the phone, quit smoking, exercise, take a trip. I mean well…sometimes I succeed like the whole smoking thing. 8 years and going strong. But most of the time it’s an epic fail. The last couple years I’ve noticed people giving their year a theme. Finding a word that resonates and has been missing from every day life. Mindfulness. Movement. Action.

Start Somewhere — Get Organized

I SWEAR IT’S FOR REAL THIS TIME! I super suck right now with dates. BUT, I PINKY SWEAR, it’s working now. I think I need to take another look at this new planner. Is this thing on? Check one, Check two. Ok…working.

I’m so sorry you guys! I just wanted to quickly drop in today to let you know I’m over at Live Laugh Rowe with a super fun FREE Wallpaper Download. Inspiration set in when I kinda felt like I was drowning a few weeks back. AN overload of work, life and dealines.

Instead of facing the music and buckling down the chin strap, I of course took pictures of gold paperclips. I know, I know…so not productive, and not the most practical way to spend my time. But in a way it was. It reminded me to get organized already. “Start Somewhere” I decided to make it a wallpaper to remind me every day…and you can too. Download it for free to your laptop, computer, tablet or phone. Just head on over to Live Laugh Rowe.

Start Somewhere, Get Organized

Free Printable — Bring On The Weekend

It’s Fri-yay! Wahoo! I have a very special post for you guys. Today I’ve got a free printable. I was listening to my iPod on the way home from the gym, possibly channelling Christina Aguilera, belting it out lyrics like a contestant on The Voice with the windows down…yep, I was that girl. Anyhoo, I was jamming to “Bring On The Weekend” by Class Actress and thought, “Dude, this lyric would make for a perfect free printable!”

Valentine’s Day Free Printables

Happy almost Valentine’s Day lovers!!! Seriously, how did THAT happen? This is always one of those hallmark holidays that sneaks up on me. It’s like I sail through Thanksgiving thinking I’m on top of my game and get clobbered by Christmas. When I was a kid V-Day was a favorite of mine. I loved exchanging those tiny cards with Bugs Bunny or Strawberry Shortcake. The boys would give Transformers and Star Wars cards. Each envelope would be attached with a heart shaped sucker, stuffed with “talking” hearts or SweetTarts. You’d eat pink frosted cupcakes and paste a doily and big red heart on a brown paper bag to collected your loot. Well, this year’s different. I’m celebrating and gifting you two Valentine’s Day free printables! How ya like them apples?

DIY Holiday Gift Tag Printable

When Grace from The Big Reveal ask me to design holiday gift tags for her “Creative Ways to Package Holiday Cookies” post, I kinda jumped for joy (and declared myself insane). That’s totally normal, right? I know, I know, it sounds weird especially since we spent the entire week cranking out the Wildwood Speakeasy New Year’s Eve party last week. Grace had leverage though. She bribed me by showcasing them on Twin Cities Live today. And I can now say I was on TV…well, kinda. Ok, ok, my holiday gift tags were on TV with Laura’s nuts…technically NOT me, but hey, I’ll take it! At least I can say I know a TV star! Besides, I had started designing these a while back but became too busy to finish, but still itching to complete. This was just the nudge shove I needed to put on the final touches (and finally decide on a color scheme). I mean, they’ve only been sitting on my desktop since October. (I might be a bit of a procrastinator.)
