It is officially Spring by me! Yippee!! I always feel re-energized when Spring comes around and lately I’ve been really wanting to get organized and change my working space a little to re-inspire myself.
Today I’m sharing some creative links to different DIYs that I think would be fun to make, help me stay a little more organized, and will make my space cute & inspirational. If you have any other DIY suggestions, I’d love to see them, so leave me a link in the comments below.
Before I get into the creative links, I’m going to start out by saying I’m not really good at staying organized. I think (or hope) that the problem is I just haven’t found the organization process that works best for me, I often start really strong and then the process becomes really burdensome and I struggle to keep up with it, but I’m determined to keep trying. Do you ever have this problem too? Or do you have a favorite way to stay organized that really works for you?
Here are the links:
- To stay organized || Clementine Creative has really cute & helpful tab dividers for planners that are free to print here. I’m not using
- Something cute for the wall || I thought this cute handwritten statement would look nice on my wall and would help to motivate. You can find the free print out from Smiling Colors here.
- For my desk || As a lover of fiber art, I couldn’t pass up this easy tutorial by Homey Oh My for making a small rope basket. This would be really cute on my desk and hold all the pens I use!
- Another for my desk || This is a two-part creative link. First, a DIY on making a cute little succulent planter out of concrete from By Brittany Goldwyn. I love the look of concrete and the steps look really easy. Second, if you saw my post on Instagram, you know I have resorted to mostly fake plants inside my house, but I came across this great website that explains how to grow and care for succulents. Here is a really great post on rooting cactus pads by Succulents and Sunshine. A cactus & those concrete planters would be super cute on my desk.
I’m also going to hang up the gorgeous trinket I bought from the talented ladies of Hello Tangle (do you remember when I interviewed them? They are really sweet and very talented). I love to collect handmade art when I can and include it in my home. Is there an artist you’re really into?
Oh, and how can I finish this post without mentioning a book or two? (affiliate links below)
- From my local library I recently checked out The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up by Marie Kondo. This book had really great tips on decluttering & organizing your living space. I thought it was helpful and inspiring, but I will definitely need to check it out again to get myself back on track.
- I recently found the book Only Love Today by Rachel Macy Stafford and skimmed through the pages. My first impression is that this is a really lovely book that can help refocus each day on the positive. The book is also broken up into seasons (it starts at Spring) which I thought was really interesting. I’m not sure what I’ll think of the book as I go, but I will definitely give it a try.
Do you also like to organize and change around your living space when Spring comes around? And don’t forget to share you’re creative links or organizing tips below, I love to learn about new things.
