We just moved out of state and needless to say, I am still getting settled. In my new house, I have a new corner for my office with great natural light pouring in from a sweet little garden outside. But let’s face it, this is sad. Not at all pretty like the things I get to create. So, with the back to school season quickly approaching, I decided now was a great time to make over my office and get organized for the new school year ahead!
Before, my desk was just a surface to work on. But now, I am in love! I popped into Swoozie’s and was in heaven with all of their new agendas, desk accessories and back to school organizational goodies. I love how it all came together and when August rolls around, I am definitely prepared!
As a kid, my favorite thing about “back-to-school shopping” was getting to pick out and buy my school supplies! The kitty folders and Trapper Keepers were always what I looked forward to most. (I know I am showing my age, but if you are a child of the 80’s, you understand.) As an adult, now I get to pick out agendas, planners, notebooks and folders to stay organized. And with all that Swoozie’s has, it is so much fun!
How cute is this planner? I mean seriously! The gold, the flowers, the stickers!
Every month has different art to welcome you to it. For this creative type, seeing these each month, sings to my soul.
I love to have a sweet smelling candle on my desk. Something about a warm glow and soft scent that provides comfort during long hours working.
Honestly, I couldn’t choose my favorite planner, so I picked up a few. I love to have one for my desk & one for my purse. For the others that I couldn’t leave in the store, those will be gifts to my dearest friends. Lucky for them, they have summer birthdays.
So enjoy these last few weeks of summer and when you do back-to-school shopping for your kids, don’t forget to get yourself organized too! Here’s to a great new school year!
