A Look Inside Organized Charm’s New Etsy Shop!

Last week, I made a pretty big announcement. Who decides to throw an Etsy shop into the mix with finals rapidly approaching? And not just normal finals… but the culmination of one’s graduate school career? Oh, that would be me. No big deal.

And even though it has been a lot of work to get everything in the shop set up, I have to say that I am SO, SO happy that I decided to do this! I already have 10 (yes, 10!) printables available in the shop and I’m adding another one today! YAY!

Before I officially announced this shop via OC, I wanted to be sure that I could successfully create “mini” planner pages… and guess what? I can! And I, of all people, am totally thrilled about that!

So this post is dedicated to the shop! Kind of like a cheat sheet / tour / what to expect!

(And who among us doesn’t love to know what to expect, right?!)

Okay, so here is everything I can think of to tell you!

Where: Etsy (AKA the website equally as addictive as Pinterest)

When: This shop technically opened on Monday… but it’s grand opening is TODAY! YAY! 🙂

PICTURED: Year at a Glance Printable 
Why: I created this shop because I wanted more options/control over what goes in my planner. And if I wanted that, I thought that other people might be looking for that, too!

PICTURED: Month at a Glance
How: These are instant downloads, which is super convenient! If you’ve ordered from Etsy before, then you are familiar with how it works. But for those of you who aren’t so familiar with it…

Here’s how it works!

1. Login/Visit Etsy
2. Choose the printables that you want/need/love the most!
3. Checkout
4. Download your new printables!

Easy peasy lemon squeezy! 🙂

Have you used Etsy in the past? Did you have a good experience? What kinds of printables would you like to see in the shop?

Trending: 3 Things to Try This Weekend

I don’t know about you, but I am so completely excited about this lovely first weekend of spring! We have had our windows open non-stop for the past few days and it feels INCREDIBLE! Whether you’re spending time at the dog park, on a weekend getaway, or taking on a huge organizing project at home, here are some quick little things to try over the weekend! 
A must-do for anyone who runs a website! Peek is a website where you can request a {free} user review of your website in video form. Then you are e-mailed a 5ish-minute video of a random stranger navigating your site and making suggestions about its usability. Constructive criticism at its best!
Doesn’t this look amazing? I pinned it last summer from Hello Paper Moon and completely forgot to try it (and yes, it’s even simple enough for me to make). It seems like it will go perfectly with all of this lovely warm weather we’ve been having lately! 
The most important thing to try this weekend is to stop complaining! “But I love to complain,” you say. I know. Me, too. Which is why I’m trying (hard) to use more positive language in my life lately. Also, are you following a-thousand-words on tumblr.? Because it’s filled with non-stop encouragement! 
Let me know if you tried any of it. I hope y’all all have a wonderful weekend! 

Trending: Memphis Fall Fashion

Last month, my husband (the hot, slightly creepy-looking guy below) and I were invited to do a fall fashion shoot for a local magazine highlighting some of the most awesome boutiques in Memphis. 
The issue came out this week and I have been lusting over a few of these pieces: 

Sheer army-green top by Haute Hippie
Tan lace cami by Haute Hippie
Burnt-red jeans by Legacy
(Honestly, these jeans may change my mind about being strictly a “dress person”.)
Black and gold bead necklace
(I am the biggest fan of giant, chunky necklaces. The bigger, the better.)
Titanium ring 
(I have never felt as tough as I did wearing this ring. Yes, please.) 

Black bag by Vince Camuto
(Something terrible might happen if I do not own this bag soon. It’s perfect.)
Pink button-down blouse by BLVD
Gray-and-black stripe dress with open glove sleeve by R&R Surplus
Faux fur vest by Love Token
(Pale pink and gray is one of my favorite color combos… obviously.)
“Double Shift” flower ring
“Shake Rattle & Roll” fan necklace

(I could not have invented more appropriate jewelry for myself if I tried. Perfectly pretty and girly!)

Happy Saturday, y’all! 🙂
