New ideas – Products coming soon!!!

14 Apr

Hi everybody,

I have been in Etsy mode.  I have so many ideas and wanted to get your thoughts  :)

Here are some things I am tossing around in my head.

  • Updates to my Digital Disney Cars invites, got some inspiration from my first order
  • Digital Disney Frozen invites coming
  • Bridal Party thank-you notes.   Custom color to match your bridal party.  Can also create a custom inside to be an invitation to a shower or the rehearsal dinner.
  • Shower invites (Baby or Wedding) featuring a velum overlay

These ideas are just in my head right now and will hopefully get some of them created this weeks so I can share with you.

Most posts coming, I did some creating with my Sizzix this weekend!!! Excited to share.

Super Easy Project: Grocery List Pouch

1 Apr IMG_2751

Happy April Everybody!!!!  Hopefully spring actually be here soon.  At this rate we might just go right into Summer.   Here is a simple idea that I came up with over the weekend.  I am very into couponing right now and it’s awesome because let’s face it Coupons are basically free money.  They can be pain and time consuming but if you make it part of the grocery list process it’s totally worth it.

I had been using Envelopes for my coupons, I write my list on the outside and put the coupons on the inside and off to the store I go.  But now I have no envelopes left.  So I am going to use the large amount of Cardstock that I have right now  Shameless plug alert:  Check out my site WarmTidings for my awesome cards and invitations – there’s a link to the right too ——>

Ok back to the project….

Take your normal 8 1/2 x 11 sheet of paper

Fold in half a staple (or tape) the sides

Now you have a front and back to write you list on

An an opening for all of those coupons

DONE

It’s a super simple project and then that way you have everything in one spot, you are organized and then not fumbling while at the store.

Have a great day everybody, see you later in the week for ideas and projects.  Hoping to get some more things posted to the Etsy site later this week.

Pens & Paper – Can too much hinder productivity?

28 Mar

I love office supplies.  I could spend hours and hours in a Staples or an Office Max.  Now that I work for an Office Supply Wholesale/Distribution company I have access to even more.

So…. Continue reading

Organizing for productivity

27 Mar

Last weekend I was in an organizing mood and was a little anxious about being more organized.  Let’s face it you can’t be 100% organized all of the time.  It’s not even an option when you have a toddler and another job.  At least it isn’t for me.  So with starting the Etsy Site and trying to make sure I have everything ready if I get orders I wanted to make sure I had all of my stuff in one spot instead of piled in a bin.

Here is the Before…

So with an inexpensive file bin from Staples and hanging file folders that I already had here is my newly organized file box

IMG_7113

I have my box of cards at the front of the bin with what I already have listed for sale.  I have all of my Paper and embellishments in the folders ready to go when I need them.  I will also have spots for specific projects if I have to pre-cut or don’t have them put together yet.

and this is what my bin looks like now.  It’s just my tools

IMG_7114

 

It’s all about things having a place and making sure they are organized logically.  For example I separated my stickers into Alphabets vs Embellishments.  Why?  Because then I don’t have to sort through them all if I am looking for one or the other.

So then with my new motivation for organizing I helped a friend get all of her scrapbook stuff organized.  The Pictures with the papers she was going to use.  So then it will be much easier for her to get going on her projects because everything is no longer in a huge daunting pile that is easier to ignore.  :D

Putting everything in one spot make productivity that much easier.  Let’s see how many projects I can crank out this weekend.  Stay tuned for more posts!!!

Tomorrow’s post – Can too many pens & pads of paper hamper productivity???

Thanks for stopping by!!!
