Well hello there friends. This week marks the start of school for my (not so) littles and we are grudgingly giving up the lazy days of summer to get back into some semblance of a daily routine. We bought the fresh new pencils and notebooks, a few new pairs of shoes, and headed back to school yesterday. I'd show you the cute photos I took, but my camera battery died in the process and my spare (as well as the stupid charger) have gone missing. If you could see the disaster area that is my office, you'd be amazed that the charger is the only thing I can't locate. Which reminds me, has anyone seen my clear ruler?!?
So today I'm hoping to muster the gumption (re: consume a whole crapload of caffeine) and try to get my workspace into some kind of order. But while I'm waiting for the coffee to kick in, I thought I'd share a quick layout designed with my beloved grid framework:
S U P P L I E S :
This was a random assortment of photos that were taken over the span of a week, and I combined them with my Weekday Squares Printables in a grid of 2.25" squares. This printable (along with several of my other designs and cut files) are available in my new etsy store - there's a link in the sidebar as well. I'll be adding additional designs frequently, and I'd love it if you stopped by and checked it out!
I added an assortment of color-coordinated embellishments to each aquare, including chipboard, stickers, scraps of patterned paper, flair, and enamel dots. Some accents are purely decorative; others I tried to tie back to the photo (the number "4" on the chalk drawing of our family, the "yum" sticker on the food photo).
The "everyday" title is from my Weekday Script titles and it one of my most used cut file sets. It's great for week-in-review pages like this or Project Life documentation. Let me know if you have any suggestions for sets you'd like to see. I'm always looking for versatile design ideas!
So with that, I'm off to tackle this mess! (I added that exclamation mark in hopes of rousing some enthusiasm here. It's not working. Maybe I'll just have one more cup of coffee...)
