something pretty + something free

Are you a paper addict?  If so, then welcome.  I’m such a sucker for lovely craft and paper goods.  It really is a problem.  If I see it, I buy it.  Case in point, the little goodies I bought for our girls as their gift when we came back from our parent weekend in Atlanta.  My little artiste and my busy bee both loved these.

In case anyone asks, the small, striped clipboard and clear art supply case are from TJ Maxx, and other goodies are from Target.

I still buy print calendars and such, even though I have that calendar thing on my iphone and computer.  For some reason I cannot fully commit to going digital for my agenda.  I’m quasi digital but then back up most appointments in print.  You can imagine when I saw the sugar paper line at Target, it was like a moth to a flame.  I bought this little guy – like that it has three holes so I can pop it in one of my teacher binders.  It makes me sooooo happy to have pretty things with my teaching supplies.  Noticed he’s on sale for $7.  Confession –  I also bought this.  Like I told you, I have some kind of pretty paper issue.  But this whole sugar paper series is far too irresistible!

And I love the craft paper series they did too.  When the line came out, I literally stood at the display for at least 15 minutes, unable to decide which “look” to choose.

The dots, the stripes, the fabulous colors.  Aggghh!  I basically went crazy and bought a sugar paper calendar of some type for nearly every member of our family.  I bought a cal for me, husband, our 12 year old, and a “family” wall calendar, so maybe that’s not so bad?  If the chickens could write, I probably would have bought them a calendar for their egg laying schedule.

In case you missed all the sugar paper goods at Target, I found this gorgeous free printable 12 month calendar designed by the elli blog.  Download over here.  Adorable!  Love the calligraphic font and confetti.  Each month has a different confetti color scheme.

By the way, I cannot believe March is almost here, can you?  This year is flying by!

    Pve, we can be the charter members.

    Alix, Not sure where you live, but I know our Destin Target still has many sugar paper calendars in different styles.
