Introducing The Freebie Library

I’m about as paper-obsessed as they come and am constantly looking for new ways to incorporate it into my daily life. I love designing worksheets and calendars to stay organized, dreaming up fun party invites, and even creating my own gift wrap. Rather than keep these goodies all to myself, I wanted to create a space where I could share my ideas with others and thus, The Freebie Library was born.

The Freebie Library

As a newsletter subscriber, you will receive full access to an assortment of awesome downloads to help you stay organized, host like a pro, and add an extra dose of pretty to your life. This includes all the downloads and printables seen on the blog, plus a bevy of exclusive downloads just for you. I’m excited to share my ideas with you and spend more time creating for the fun of it and plan to update the library 2-3 times each month.

Here are some things you can expect to find:

  • Calendar downloads

  • Phone + desktop wallpapers

  • Organizational worksheets

  • Party stationery + decor

  • Printable greeting cards

  • Recipe cards

  • Gift wrap + tags

  • And much more!

Free Printable Cleaning Checklist

Free printable cleaning checklist from Evermore Paper Co.

Happy first day of Spring! It’s currently raining outside and while I’m looking forward to the days when I can open the windows and let the cool breeze in, I also realize that it’s time to give my apartment a serious deep cleaning. Things have gotten quite disorganized around here after hunkering down through the winter months and let’s just say that I have more than one junk drawer that needs tending to.

I’m pretty sure I’m not the only one who’s space could use a little TLC, so I created this simple cleaning checklist to help you stay on top of everything without getting overwhelmed. The goal is to tackle one item from each section every week starting now and in five weeks time your place will feel all shiny and new again. And since I’m all about positive reinforcement, I also included a place to list any new items you’d like to add to each space as a way to reward yourself for all that hard work and to keep things feeling fresh. That’s 24 little updates each year if you repeat this plan every season!

3. A tutorial on how to create an asymmetrical spring floral arrangement.
4. The perfect hanger for tight closets.
5. A great roundup of eco-friendly cleaning supplies.
6. A laundry room redo that will make your jaw drop.
7. The best houseplants for your bathroom.
8. Helpful tips for making the most of small rooms.
9. Easy recipes for all-natural homemade cleaning supplies.

3 Simple Bullet Journal Templates

3 Simple Bullet Journal Templates

Over the years, I have acquired an arsenal of planners, notepads and notebooks. They’re the stationery products I covet the most and I always justify my purchases by designating a specific use for each one. For example, “Oh, I’ll use this one to track work-related tasks and this one for home projects.”

As a result, all of my most important ideas, tasks and projects are spread across no fewer than 3 journals. My current system can easily be described as organized chaos. And to no surprise, it’s no longer working for me and my growing need to simplify and have everything in one place. Sound familiar to anyone?

3 Simple Bullet Journal Templates

In comes bullet journaling. I’ve known about this system for some time, but have always felt a little intimidated by the methodical nature of this practice and fearful that I’ll abandon it after a week or two. However, I’ve decided to give it a go at last and have been taking baby steps. First, I started using this habit tracker last year. And now, I’m testing out a few different weekly log designs with the hopes that the process will stick.

And since I figured I’m not alone, I thought I’d share three templates that I developed using this grid notepad. There’s one for tracking your weekly tasks/notes/goals, another for your daily schedule and lastly, one for logging your daily habits, water intake and sleep patterns. Like I said, I’m starting small, but hopefully with time I’ll work my way up to filling this notebook. So tell me, are you a BuJo expert and do you have any tips for a newbie like me?

Free Printable Habit Tracker

Free Printable Habit Tracker

Happy New Year! I hope you are feeling refreshed after the long weekend and ready to tackle all of your dreams in 2017. If you're anything like me, that probably means you have a mile-long to do list of everything you would like to achieve this year. In order to keep my goals in sight, I am working to cultivate daily habits that will help me stay on track while still making time for the things that bring me joy. Since I am a visual person, I created this habit tracker to help me log my progress and stay motivated. I hope it will lead to a healthier, more productive daily routine.

It is available for download for free here. Also, if you are looking for additional tools to help you stay focused this year, be sure to check out my desktop goods

Printable Christmas Wrapping Paper

minimal hand-lettered holiday gift wrap | free download

I'm slowly making progress on my gift shopping, which is a huge improvement and a bit of a relief compared to where I was a few days ago. To be honest, I am doing the majority of it online this year, since I only lasted about an hour during an unsuccessful outing over the weekend. I'm fairly patient when it comes to traffic and mobs of people, but combine that with a cold and let's just say I would have been better off if I had stayed in bed.

I did however manage to snag some festive gift wrap. I typically go for more subdued tones at the holidays, but thought a bold pattern would be a fun alternative this year. I went ahead and created this pretty hand-lettered gift wrap to compliment it and turned it into a free printable for you to use as well. There are two sizes available for download depending on your printer's capabilities. Hopefully it makes you just as excited as I am to wrap your gifts. 

DOWNLOAD: 8.5 x 11" paper

DOWNLOAD: 13 x 19" paper

Also, as a reminder, I am hosting a Holiday DIY Workshop tonight at the Market by Foxtrot from 6-8pm. We'll be making poms, tassels and paper ornaments to give your gifts and decor an extra special handmade touch this season. There are still a few spots available if you would like to join us.

Let's Feast Dinner Party Printables

Fall Feast Free Printables | Dinner invite, menu & place cards by Evermore Paper Co.

As the days get cooler and the hats and gloves come out, I am envisioning many hearty meals and fireside cocktails in the near future. Often times, my favorite nights are the ones spent huddled inside with loved ones and barrels of laughter. So with the feast of all feasts (Hey Thanksgiving!) quickly approaching and the fact that I will still be in London during the festivities, I can't help but feel a little tinge of fomo. On the other hand, however, it does present a new opportunity for Travis and I to come up with what I'm sure will be a fun and offbeat way to celebrate the holiday, which of course is something to look forward to.

In the meantime, I decided to channel my love of a good meal into some pretty downloads for your next dinner party. Complete with invite, menu and place cards, I hope these printables will help set the right tone for a cozy night ahead with friends and family. Click here to download.
