So, I started an Etsy shop...

Wednesday, February 7, 2018

As a kid, I was always doing some sort of arts and crafts project! My bedroom was littered with paper scraps and and the vacuum cleaner was always sucking up beads. I still love doing art projects, but I've found that my creative side has really evolved in the last decade! My canvas painting was upgraded to house painting for one thing. Most of my creative juices really went into our home for most of our early marriage. There are still home projects I'd like to do, but it's not every weekend anymore.

When I started this blog in 2014, it became a great outlet for creativity! From post ideas, to photography, and then into blog design. I'm really proud that I customized my blog personally, and I had a lot of fun designing things, like my header, and I still enjoy making blog graphics. It's actually surprised me how much I enjoy the graphics side of things. 

I'm still learning, but I've created a few graphics that I thought would make great printables for others to get use out of. So, I started an Etsy shop! Etsy is such a great tool for both creative people and consumers! I'm usually the consumer so this has been an interesting learning process.

Make Today Awesome Daily Planning Printable

My Etsy shop is going to start out with instant downloads of a handful of planning printables. I'm still personally digital planning, but sometimes it's nice to print out a planning sheet to help me organize my thoughts for a particularly busy day. 

In addition to daily planning sheets, I've also created a basic blog post planning sheet, a house sitter information sheet, and a packing list printable. All really helpful, and I'm using them myself!

I'm hoping to be creating more printables soon. I have a few more planning sheets that I think will be helpful to others. I'd so appreciate your feedback! Leave a comment below if there is a particular planning printable that you'd like to have. Are you a big Etsy shopper? Or maybe you have a shop? Leave a link down below and I'd love to see what you are creating! And let me know if you were one of those crafty kids!
