Free Printable- Simple Typographic Calendar

I've decided to start making some printables, some will be free, some will cost a small fee, and today I'm premiering my first printable, and it's FREE!

This design is a simple typographic 2017 calendar (yeah I know, month 2 is upon us... but the cool thing is you can print single pages so it really doesn't matter).

Here is a preview, and I hope you enjoy this calendar!

Start With Postive Reboot

A couple of years ago I was on this #startwithpositive kick on Instagram. I'd make quick memes with words of inspiration to help myself, and others, start with positive intentions. I must admit when I was younger I was definitely a negative person. Over the years I've improved myself and my life to fight the negativity and depression, and I will admit it is not easy. Humans tend to go the negative route in many situations, even people who would label themselves as a "positive" or "happy" person have plenty of down moments. This is just being human. I do believe we can overcome that and reset ourselves. Let's face it, the world tends to be an overwhelmingly cruel place, but I do see a more positive world emerging. Not in the media/political fake bullshit way, I mean in the individual - and their concern for the collective. I know a lot of people who are growing, changing, and impacting the world we live in, and at the end of the day, that's what will spill over and cause change to spread.

Never depend on an outside force to make you a better person, it's impossible.  YOU are the only one who can enact change, and it starts with yourself. How do I know this? I've proven it to myself in my own life.

Anyway, I really hate preaching to people, it's basically useless, but sometimes another person's experience can inspire change in others, so that's all I'm trying to do. Can't hate someone saying you can literally be the best you - if you care to try.

Here are some new #startwithpositive memes I've been making. I make them quickly on my iPhone using the app Word Swag, and I don't put a ton of thought into them. They help me quickly design, and they help remind me to keep on keeping on, and I figured I'd start spreading that positive outlook again.

Enjoy!

Manipulated Substances- Photography by Sarah McMahon

Here are some abstract photographs I've recently taken. I'll admit, I've always wanted to be a painter, but I have very little patience for fine art. So, what's the solution? I decided to take photos of substances and manipulate the substances on a plate, then edit the photos.

Enjoy!

More Thought Provoking Videos

I love to share thought provoking videos that I happen upon, and these two are definitely worth a watch. The first one is so well done and is asking the fundamental question, what is self? The second is also well done, just in a more playful way, but with a great message. Both are short, both are amazing. Please watch and spread these amazing videos!

Welcome To My Home Office

As a freelancer it's important for me to have a functional and comfortable space to work from. It's taken me about a month to set it up how I like it, but I feel like it's time to present it to the world. So, welcome to my home office!

From here I do everything from design work, to writing, to photography, to blogging, to jewelry making, and any other creative endeavor I happen to take on. Since setting up the space I definitely feel like I've become more productive, and having a designated space keeps me creative. True to form, my style is a mix of masculine and feminine, and if I weren't renting, those walls would be a nice light gray!

Clem's little pillow there, although she rarely will come into the room for more than 5 minutes. :/

Some of the sweet prints I got at Hatch Show Print in Nashville.

Oh, and I love owls...

Those vintage suitcases are hiding all my jewelry making supplies. 

I bought this table for $35 and then I painted it and gave it new handles. It was in sad shape when I got it, but it's one of my favorite pieces now!

If you can't tell, I collect cameras. I have tons on my living room mantle.

Well, I hope you enjoyed peeking into my world! Enjoy!
