Mean Girls Halloween Wallpaper

October is my 2nd favorite month (my #1 fave is May, my b-day month!) for numerous reasons; The first being that the weather cooling officially marks the beginning of Fall and I can pull out my vampy lipsticks and suede OTK boots and wear them every dang day till February! Secondly, I love October because it houses my Mother’s birthday, Halloween and “Mean Girl’s Day” (which, as we all know, is officially Oct 3rd!) . This month’s freebie is a fun little phone wallpaper that wraps some of my favorite Fall things into one cute design! I hope you enjoy!

COFFEE FIRST Sequin Sweatshirts // SS16 Collection

Since 2011 I’ve been creating sequin embellished apparel (see herehere & here!) and selling my designs since 2014 (see here & here!). I’ve always had a special place in my heart for sequins! Last year, in October, I released my first all-sequin embellished line of short-sleeve sweatshirts to the public! The most popular design was the “Coffee First” sweatshirt and was sold out before I even uploaded them to my online boutique! I had people texting, e-mailing, PM-ing, Tweeting and Instagram-ing me, BEGGING to buy the sweatshirt after I posted the first teaser image on Instagram! Because of that incredible popularity (and the countless inquiries I’ve received since!) I decided to release the Coffee First 2.0 just in time for Spring!

New Logo Designs and Free Wallpapers!

Hey dolls! Hope your Saturday is going fabulously 😉

I’m posting today to ask for your help! Let me explain …. The last few weeks (since the launch of this new site location) I’ve been working on some new logo design concepts for My DIY Life.

You’ve met Miss Edna Bee if you’re following me on Instagram (she’s my ‘mascot’) but she doesn’t want to stay looking one way… I keep tweaking her. So before I make my final decision and order business cards, etc. and plaster her face all over my social media I want your opinion!

I’ve created two digital phone wallpapers for y’all each featuring the two different ‘Edna Bee’ designs I’m considering. Let me know which you like best, sil vous plait?

Leave me a comment below with your favorite choice! #1 or #2?

Thank you so much for your help!

 

 

FREE printable editorial calendar

I had such a great response from my last blog post about DIY-ing an inexpensive home-office makeover (thank you for all the pins and shares!) and several of you asked on social media where I got my planner pages; specifically the editorial page. After a quick poll on Instagram to confirm interest I decided to share! Drum roll please… I made them! (big, surprise, I know).

FREE Printable Blog Brainstorming page & Editorial Weekly Calendar page!

I will be releasing the entire planner over the rest of this month in a series of blog posts, so make sure you check back frequently so as not to miss any of the downloads!

Today’s freebie pages will be the editorial blogging calendar and the blogging brainstorm page.

 You can download the pages HERE and HERE

It’s crazy easy to use these pages in a personal, A5, filofax, or a full-sized binder.

To print for a full-sized binder (8.5″x11″) use the original .pdf download.

For smaller planners use the printing instructions below:

For the Editorial Calendar Page scale the image to 15% and print 2 copies per page.

 For the Blog Brainstorming Page choose the ‘scale to fit’ option, ‘fill entire page’, and print 2 copies per page. Most standard, US desktop printers have these options (or similar ones), but bear in mind you may have to experiment with the settings to get two of the printables to fit one one page.

After printing simply cut down the center to separate the pages and punch holes to fit your binder.
