Organization – May Designs

Screen Shot 2017-01-15 at 9.23.37 PMHow’s your January going?! It’s flying by, right?

We’re half way (half way!) through the first month of the year, so it’s a good time to check in and see how your calendar skills, organization techniques and goal setting is going. Are you doing well or need a quick reset? We all have to do it. Great intentions need constant tending in order to move us forward.

One of my favorite designers for making all this organization more colorful and fun is May Designs. Originally known for their customizable, soft-sided notebooks, they have everything from desk and wall calendars, gratitude journals and even fun planner stickers to keep the task of staying organized easy, creative and affordable.

One of my favorite products is their desk calendar. Once the month is over, flip over the card, cut it in half and it is meant to be used to send a note to someone. Pretty clever!Screen Shot 2017-01-15 at 9.24.49 PM

Note of Thanks

Continuing our theme of Gratitude this month, I thought I’d share a few more thanks-related goodies. The beautiful print above ( 8.5″ x11″ for $25) is custom and can be made in any color and up to 15 words. To have your own gratitude quote, song lyric, bible verse or special message created for you or as a gift, click here.

Want to have a little favor at each person’s place at your Thanksgiving table? How about a little gratitude journal (5 for $18)? 

Need an activity before Thanksgiving dinner while you’re in the kitchen trying to get the sides to all come out together? Have everyone fill out these I’m Thankful for cards (set of 8 for $6) and then have someone set them at each person’s place at the table.
Journal and cards available here.
She was there for you. He brought you chicken soup 3 days in a row. They showed up with dinner for your family when you had to leave town to help an ailing parent. She drove the carpool 3 weeks in a row. This is the time to send them a note and let them know how much their help meant. The perfect card/keepsake is this Oh So Grateful card from Two Rubies. The recipient can easily separate the grateful portion and use it as a bookmark to remind them that being helpful is always a good thing!
And, I’m oh so grateful that it’s finally the weekend! What have you got planned?!!
