gettingorganized

just like everybody else, i am getting organized for the year. here are my calendar choices for 2014.

1. kraft wall calendar for my studio. i see so much color everyday i try to keep things nice and simple on the walls – and when i finally paint the walls from the horrible blue and green to white this year the kraft calendar will look that much better. i also have the kraft background on my studio computer.

2. patterned wall calendar for my home. this will go in the kitchen and the colors will add just the right pop to my white walls and yellow countertops. to go with the calendar i have the patterned background on my computer at home.

3. monthly planner for keeping track of bills. this is the perfect size to record bills i need to pay and money coming in. if it is an actual bill i clip it in and write the amount on the date and all other bills i just mark the date and amount.

4. kraft monthly sheets for projects. i have been using this type of calendar for years. i am happy to see that these sheets and the spiral version has taken off so well. these calendars and the sheet next to them are so great for planning large projects with lots of little deadlines. when something overwhelming is coming up being able to make a task list and then mapping them out week by week makes a huge difference. i use them with a binder so any relevant paper work or more sketching pages can easily be added and taken out.

5. a travel notebook for daily lists. almost everyday i start the day off with making a list of what needs to get done. i thought about using the weekly planner this year, but i like the flexibility of a notebook right now.

for anything i schedule months in advance that i can’t forget (like the dentist) i add those right to my phone and make sure it emails me a day or two before.

what’s your favorite way to get organized? i love hearing how people use their calendar and planner and getting suggestions for new styles. i know for sure that there will be an extra large kraft calendar offered next year – i think at least once a week someone asks for one.



we’re sorry, but orders placed between May 15 and May 24 will be shipped on May 27 … but for good reason … we are headed to the National Stationery Show to display our new collections. new items will be available online in June. here’s a little sneak peak of what’s going to be in store.

i  always wished that i was someone who could keep journals, but it’s just something that i was never able to do. i think it’s because the large white pages are a little intimidating. or it could be because i’m not the sentimental type – in fact my sister sometimes calls me a robot.

but the new kraft journaling spots and the “i’m grateful journal” is just the right amount of memory keeping i need. i’m enjoying writing the lists that are prompted on the little notes – especially the “dreaming of …” ones. who doesn’t like to make a list of everything they want to do and have.

the “i’m thankful for …” pocket journal is a nice little keepsake that i keep around and make simple notes in whenever i think of something. i’m thinking of passing one around the thanksgiving table and having everyone write in it for a keepsake.

here’s something to be thankful for – right now you can get 20% off your order from shopletterCdesign.com. simple enter the coupon code “givethanks” when checking out. keep in the loop of new products and promotions by signing up for the newsletter.
