::::: About My Printables :::::

I've always loved to write things down- I'm a list person!

I started having trouble remembering things while I was in college.  When I was taking notes in class I discovered that the act of writing something down actually helped me retain information better.  My professors probably thought I was insane when I pulled out 15 different colored gel pens, but using pretty, colorful pens truly helped me be a better student.
Sticky notes littered my desk.  No really, I had about 30 different kinds of sticky notes and each one had it's own *special* purpose.  My sticky note system worked very well, but it was a little chaotic.  Once I moved into an apartment and then a home I realized I couldn't place sticky notes all over the place.  I was an adult.  I needed a more practical system.

That's when I started creating lists and planners.  I worked in a chemistry lab after college doing all sorts of experiments and projects and attending occasional meetings.  I had a lot of information and codes to keep straight so I started working on Word and Excel.  At first they were just simple, boring documents or spreadsheets to help keep me on schedule.  Then, through Pinterest, I discovered something called a "Household Binder."  I wanted one... needed one... but I realized that I could make one myself.
After playing around with some design software and creating pages for a few days I was hooked!  I created my first collection of health and nutrition printables and opened an Etsy shop in 2012.  My shop has gone from hobby to full-time career since!
Some say that planners should simply be functional and there's no need for decoration and style.  I disagree.  Attractive designs and colorful items make planning more fun for me and I'm much more likely to use a system that I enjoy. The best system is the one that works for you!  Try some FREE printables and see if my pages help you get more organized.

::::: About Me :::::

I have 2 little boys.  Callan is a future mountain climber and keeps me very, very busy every day!
Cameron is quite the handful!  He loves to roar at everyone like a dinosaur.
My husband and I met in 2007 while I was a broke college student.  We've had so much fun over the years and I can't believe we've been together as long as we have.  Time flies!  He's been so supportive of my late night printable work and I can't thank him enough for giving me the chance to do something I love!


● I have a degree in Biology and am a former chemical lab tech.
● I love all things health & fitness. I'm addicted to YouTube fitness channels.
● I also love pizza- it's called balance.
● I played college volleyball.  I'm only 5'5", but played outside hitter.  I'm not so sure I can jump like that anymore though :)
● I'm secretly very disorganized- hence the need for printables and planners.  I'm a work in progress.
