Home Management Binder: Grocery List

I LOVE this new grocery shopping list - it has a lot of spaces for large shopping trips, and I find it's been easy to use and shop with the grouped sections.  We are trying to eat more fruits and veggies lately, so I made that section the largest =)  It's at least working for my Type A personality who feels the needs to fill all those spaces!  Hope you enjoy!  {Clicking on the picture will take you to the GoogleDocs printable} Lots more coming soon, so stay tuned!

Home Management Binder - First Design

Since we recently moved into a much smaller space, I thought I would start focusing my creative energies on more graphic design type items than the messy, crafty stuff!  My first project will be templates for a Home Management Binder.  This has been long on my to-do list to create, to help me get organized, especially in a smaller space....organization is critical, as we just don't have room for the un-planned or un-purposed things right now!!

The first layout I have created is for a simple weekly overview, with room for major "dailies" such as appointments, playdates and such and also for the "menu".  There are quite a few great resources for these calendars, however, I just coudln't find one with space for both regular "dailies" and 3 slots for meals...So, I just designed one up myself!  I am also starting these out in black and white...as the only colored printer I own is about 15 years old, needs a lot of TLC and I really don't want to be printing on the thing weekly.  But, fear not, I am hoping to get some color splashed versions soon!

Here is a picture of our calendar from this past week....

And please ignore the slight off-print it has....my printer is on the list of things to fix!  I also use L, D and S for my menu options (Lunch, Dinner and Snacks).  Liam and I are not big morning eaters =)  It's the other 3 I have to plan for or I'll over-shop myself!  The template I designed for the printable has standard B, L and D...but again, let me know if you'd prefer my version or a different one.

Here is the blank template (formatted to 8.5 x 11 letter, portrait) - Just click the template to download!

Stay tuned for the series - I'll be posting these FREE printables every couple weeks or so.  And, if you have an idea for one you'd like, feel free to leave a comment below and I'll see what we can come up with!  Happy planning!

Philippians 4:8 FREE Printable! {Expired}

So, I've been really neglecting this blog...I haven't even really been diligent about keeping up my other blog, for those of you who know me there....But, getting a house ready to put on the market, starting a new bible study, potting training a 2.5 year old and still managing the household and working part time, I'd say are pretty good excuses, right??  Ok, well I'm here to make up for that, hopefully, with a new FREE printable I designed... {Free printable expired, please click HERE to purchase on my ETSY shop, or click on the print samples below}

Remember that new bible study I mentioned?  Well it's called "Me, Myself and Lies" by Jennifer Rothschild and boy is it a good one.  And talk about a LOT of work...good work, eternal work indeed.  One of the main verses she uses in the study is Philippians 4:8, so I decided to create some cute printables for my awesome group of wise women who are journeying through this study with me, as well as for you guys!  I did several different styles, so hopefully one will fit your style - Just click on the image and you'll be linked to the Google Doc where you can save and print - You can save and print for FREE until June 1!  And after that, you'll be able to find it on my Etsy shop!  Enjoy!

A New Year...

A New Year brings lots of excitement for me...a chance to start fresh, get some new ideas and start creating again.  Our Christmas was absolutely wonderful, and after all the time off to re-charge, I am renewed and inspired to get a start on this new year and hopefully roll out some new designs for my shop and start some blog work soon.

It's going to be a wonderful 2012, I know it!
