Free Motivational Printable: You’ve Got This

Free Motivational Printable: You've Got ThisIf you’re already wishing for the weekend, boy do I have some Tuesday motivation for you. There’s a chance you may have spotted this gem in my office makeover yesterday, but today I’m giving you guys the artwork for free! That’s right, this hand lettered poster by the lovely Lindsay of Shrimp Salad Circus is a printable!

Free Motivational Printable: You've Got ThisAll you need to do is download the file and print! You can print on your own, or to make it as easy as possible, you can upload the file directly to Snapfish and have them mail you the print. The one photographed above was printed as a 20″x30“, but the file should work in any size smaller than that since you can resize on their platform before printing.

Snapfish can also take care of the framing, so that the only thing you really have to do to decorate your walls is click a few buttons. Pretty cool, right?!

Office Makeover + DIY Storage Boxes

A tour of @thecraftedlife's home office + diy storage boxesHappy Monday all! Today is a fun day because I finally get to reveal what I’ve been working on over here for the last month… my office makeover! If you’ve been a reader for a while, you might remember the office makeover I did last year. Almost immediately after hitting publish on that post, that space become one giant hot mess. I mean stuff was so all over the place that I sometimes found it hard to walk to my chair in the morning. Yikes.

After really evaluating what was happening, it came down to the fact that nothing had a designated place. Because I didn’t have storage for any of my craft supplies, I ended up just putting them wherever there was room (aka stuffed in the closet), which as you can image, is not a great system for staying organized.

So, I teamed up with Snapfish to get my office into shape! Not only are the steps I took totally diy-able, but they’re affordable and super easy. Let’s get to it:

You can grab a coupon for them right here AND Painters is hosting a monthly contest from now until December where you could win a prize valued at $500 for showing off what you make (check out #StyleByAisle and #PaintersStyle on social!). The Style by Aisle with Painters Contest will have a different theme each month (this month is Clothing, Accessories, Shoes), so you can really get creative. Read more about it here!

You can also freehand your design, but the stencil is a huge help if you don’t have that confidence! Slip stencil inside tote and tape in place. Trace around your letters with the Painters and fill in.

Once your design is complete, set with heat to make machine washable. And just like that, you’re done! Easy peasy, don’t you think?!
