A new thing that I’m implementing, if you’ve been following me for a while, you know that I make these monthly calendars that I give away for free. I wanted to come up with a way to use these designs that would not only continue to benefit everyone on my email list, but also be something that someone would be able to have printed out, whether as a print or a pillow, something that they could tangibly hold.

I’ve had a few people request some of my previous designs for purchase, so I figured I would start adding them to my Society6 shop. So if you love this months calendar design and you’re interested in a print, wall hanging, or yoga mat, the world is now your oyster!

Well hello there January 7th, I’m a bit late getting these out. But you know what? I feel like that first week of January doesn’t really count…

We are still taking down (in my case very reluctantly) our Christmas decorations.

We are just getting back into the groove and flow of work after a wacky few months of holidays.

We are busy planning and dreaming for the new year.

So you know what, if you haven’t done everything you wanted to get done by January 1st, you’re not alone. And I give you (and myself) a pass.

Let’s not start this year out feeling behind and stressed. Let’s start it refreshed and feeling on the ball!

Speaking of refreshed…

I was sitting there, paintbrush in hand, staring at a blank piece of watercolor paper wondering about what to do for January’s free tech backgrounds for you. And the word that just kept coming to my mind was…

FRESH

So I started painting the first thing that popped into my mind when thinking about FRESH. I started painting citrus fruits. They’re just always so pleasing to look at (and drink/eat amirite?).

So for this month I’ve created a cute little illustrative Kumquat watercolor for you to enjoy all month long. I hope this inspires you and your fresh start!

A few January Holidays 2019…

Also wanted to share some fun and noteworthy January holidays that you may or may not know about that would be fun to add to your calendar, your social media posts, or just to know in general! It’s technically National Get Organized Month which I feel like is very fitting for the beginning of the new year!

Last but not least, if you love this fresh Kumquat Pattern and design as much as I do, and you’re looking for some fresh pieces to add to your life, then you can also check out a few of my Society6 picks below.

I’ve used the same artwork (because I just ended up loving it so much!) with blue background but also in pink because…well I love all things blushy pink.

Society6 also recently added Yoga Mats to their product offerings, which I am SO excited about! I’m in desperate need of a new one, so I’ll be ordering one of these pretty things ASAP.

3 Surprising Ways To Get Stuff Done in 2019

Happy 2019!

I don’t know about you, but the new year always signifies a clean slate. A chance to try again. An opportunity to seize more opportunities.

And you know what, something that I definitely had some struggles with in 2018 was figuring out how to make the most out of my time without being completely overwhelmed. And you know what, I came across some surprising answers along my journey. A few of the ways that I thought I had been efficient in the past actually proved to not be the best use of my time. I’m sharing some of the new and surprising ways I’m getting back more of the most valuable resource we have: our time.
