So after having to completely gut my office due to water damage, leaving everything behind for ten days to have fun at the happiest place on earth, unpacking, getting back to reality and (still) putting the office back together, I can happily say that things feel a little bit more 'normal' here. (Whatever 'normal' means, right?)
I wanted to share not only the current updated design, but also a fun new design for 2014 at the same time today, but I'm not quite 'there' with the new one, so I'll be sharing that one soon! In the meantime, here's the updated 2014 Calendar
, ready for you to print and get things organized for the upcoming new year! Projects, plans, vacations, dates, family binder, school things, daily diary, appointments, etc. - so much to do!

Have I told you I LOVE this time of year?!
It's officially time to decorate for Halloween! I'm pulling it all out today and having some fun. We've had some moderate water damage in our home from all of the heavy rains and flooding that happened here in Colorado (in my office, no less!). After dealing with a couple of road bumps, I think we're on the road to fixing everything and getting things back to normal. (Even though it's going to take 3-5 weeks!!) I'm thankful that ours was minor compared to others who lost everything.
Working in my make-shift office once again, I designed a little Halloween "Boo Banner" that coordinates with the Halloween Countdowns that I created for the Moms and Munchkins October Newsletter
. (Go sign up so you can print those as well!)
Ready to print and decorate along with me??

(I'm not so ready to chat about the 's' word in our forecast on Friday night! YIKES!)
Time for some back to school freebie fun!
I have to first tell you thank you for your patience as I wanted these available last Friday for you, but if you saw my post on Facebook
you read my little update on how I so gracefully did something to my left hand. (I have NO clue what happened!)
To make a long story short, I severely strained the ligaments in my left hand (my pinkie finger, basically) and found out it's not a fracture, thank goodness! After a weekend of my hand wrapped and in a splint, I'm almost back to normal. If anyone saw me working on the computer this weekend, it would've made for good entertainment! I was just happy to wash my hair without being in pain this morning!
Enough of that, let's get to the goodies! I know I've missed some of you, as you have already started your school year, but for those of you who haven't (we start Monday!), here are TWO (yes, TWO!!) fun little printables to kick off the new school year.
The first set
is a chalkboard type hanging tag that can be used in a variety of ways! It would be perfect for anything from the teacher to the class, from the PTO to the teachers, aids or students or from YOUR student to their own class! Wrap up extra pencils, a sweet treat, a notebook or even an apple and attach to your gift! There's even space in the apples on the tags to sign your name. Fun! Fun!

to download these and many more FREE printables!
This second FREE collection
is fun for you at home (or from the teacher!). There are hanging tags and 2 inch rounds for a fun back to school breakfast or an easy surprise in someone's lunch! Again, use these on treats, school supplies or anything else that you can think of! Lots of possibilities here as well!
I would LOVE to see what you've done with these! Share your photos with me via email and I'll share them here on the blog!

Here's to a fantastic school year!
School Routine Chart - Boy Theme
Oh my goodness, I don't know about you, but I truly believe this has been the quickest summer break ever for us!
We return to school in just a couple of weeks, but I know that some of you have started already. (I can't imagine!!)
Anyhow, today I'm sharing with you two NEW styles of charts I've added to the shop. These are specific to school routines and I hope they make mornings and after school time easier for you.
Last year, my kiddos were typically wonderful about remembering library books, wearing their tennis shoes for gym or getting homework in the backpack before school. There were a few times that these things were forgotten and made for not so pleasant mornings. (You know we've all been there!) I created one chart specifically for those who need a gentle reminder (even I do until it becomes routine!).
This chart can be fully customized with your weekly "specials" (that's what our school calls them). It's personalized as well! As soon as we know our "specials" for this upcoming year, I'll be printing and hanging them above the backpack hooks in the mudroom!
The second chart combines before and after school items, similar to the other routine charts currently in the shop. Available as an instant download, but can be easily customized for your family or individuals. Again, let's just make it easy on everyone!
You can find both of these new charts available in the shop now.
Is there anything else that you'd like to see in the shop to help with school mornings or afternoons?
Here's to a happy and fun school year!
As promised, I have a bit of an update on what's happening around the Workshop over the past several months.
I've been trying to decide since the beginning of this year (gasp!), what direction I'd like to take my little shop. Be it more family charts, organizing items, parties, other kits and on and on, I was just so confused. Then I realized I simply love to do all of them and would love to have the ability to share these things with everyone else. So that's what I'm going to do!
It's my creative outlet and I didn't want to keep myself in a box simply doing one thing.
Keep on swimming, keep on swimming...
So even though it's been a bit quiet here for some time, that will all be changing starting today!
I'm excited and hope you come along for this journey. I have many new things to share and if you have something you would LOVE to see, don't hesitate to let me know! I am all about suggestions and ideas. I have already received some fabulous ideas from some of you. Thank you!
Thanks for bearing with me while it's been quiet over here...
Some fun things coming soon:
~New charts to make things run smoothly in your home
~Fun party kits for children and adults and new options for you
~LOTS of new FREE printables
~A new look to the website
~New planners, kits and other items!
Have a wonderful Monday!
Happy August everyone!
The countdown is on for going back to school here. We have just under three weeks until that first day back. I'm so torn about getting back to a structured routine or just savoring these last few lazy days of summer.
I've done quite a bit of soul searching this summer (and literally, all of this year) trying to figure out what direction the Workshop is going. I'll explore more of this with you in the VERY near future. I'm excited to share lots of ideas and new items!
For today, let's just get our freebie on and print some fun new August planners
and enjoy these last few summer days. Grab something cool to drink and make your life easier with these organizers!

The end of March is here, which means it's time to print your new April planners!
I'm seriously BURIED in house projects right now. I think I got a little crazy thinking I could do ten different things in a short period of time! My hubby says my "Spring Fever" always brings out the crazy project lady in me. (That's not necessarily a bad thing, is it?!)
Whew! So, I'm taking a step back and reorganizing what I've gotten myself into. We are on Spring Break next week and I'm looking forward to some serious fun time with my family.
Wishing everyone a wonderful holiday weekend and a happy spring!
Have fun printing and planning!
As usual, find your planners HERE
I was thrilled and honored to help Bird over at Bird's Party
celebrate her incredible milestone of 30k followers on FB by creating a fun freebie for everyone!
It's called the "Modern Spring Stationery Collection" and includes THREE (yes, three!) sheets of fun in fabulous bright spring colors!
Use the fun packet wraps for seeds, large candy bars or anything else you can think of! The next page include gift tags and rounds to make any package springtime pretty! Finally, don't forget how important it is to hand write a simple note or thank you using the matching card and address wrap label. (Find them HERE
This was so fun to create and I'm so happy to be able to share it with you for free!
Make sure you take a moment and head over to Bird's Blog, where there's lots and lots of fun inspiration. I'm always so impressed by the seasonal digital catalogs she creates.
Happy Printing! Happy Spring!
