New Year’s Resolution Kit: Planner and Mini Notebook

Home Office, Mobile Office, Must See, Office Organization, Office Supplies, Planners

Just the Thing for Setting and Crushing Your Resolutions and Goals!

New Year's Resolution Planner
Saw it, loved it, had to have it. The New Year’s Resolution Kit (“The Path”), pictured above, is my favorite office supply thing of the moment.

Making resolutions is one of my favorite things about this time of year – right up there with Christmas  cookies and peanut butter fudge. Over the years, I’ve found that it’s a great way to assess and reassess where you ARE and where you’re HEADED. Each year, I write my resolutions in a notebook and try to keep track of it, thinking that seeing the goals throughout the year will help me stick with them.

I love the idea of a notebook that comes to ME with resolutions and goals already on its mind.

This isn’t your average planner, and when you click through to see the many pictures and bullet point attributes it has going on, you’ll want it in your life as much as I did.

This planner’s very special. Visit New Year’s Resolution Kit (“The Path”) to see just how special.

2017 Desk Calendar for Doodlers
The 2017 Mini Desk Pad Calendar might as well have my name all over it. I’m a doodler extraordinaire – especially when I’m  thinking or mulling things over. The cool thing about this desk pad is that it isn’t gigantic like a lot of desk calendars (leaving little room for necessities like coffee and chocolate). It’s the perfect size AND provides basically a stress-reducing mental playground for office freaks.

Yes please.

  • Coloring is a fun, proven way to Help reduce stress, anxiety and provides a calming effect.
  • One month and New design on each sheet, one block per day, with yearly calendar at the bottom of each sheet.
  • Reinforced chipboard backer, punched with three Holes that fits neatly in a binder
  • Tear-off sheets to display your art, bound at top
  • 50% recycled post-consumer paper preserves the environment by cutting down less trees and vegetable oil-based ink. FSC certified.

Christmas Gift Guide, Desk Accessories, Gifts For Office Freaks, Must See

Instant Relaxation for the Office... Even on Mondays...

Desktop Zen Garden

Many moons ago, I had a desktop zen garden, kind of  like the one pictured above, and LOVED it. It wasn’t as big as this one but there was something distinctly satisfying and relaxing about combing the sand with the miniature rake. I’m not sure why, but it has a distinct soothing effect on your psyche.

Who doesn’t need that between 9 and 5?!

  • The Deluxe Sand Garden is a version of the traditional Japanese meditative garden done in miniature, suitable for home or office.
  • The garden is contained in a handsome 9-inch by 9-inch rosewood frame, perfect for desk or coffee table.
  • The sand garden set includes a long-handled rake, a bamboo rake and a broom to create meditative patterns in the sand.
  • Two ceramic cranes and assorted polished stones provide visual interest and a counterpoint to the garden’s serene patterns.
  • Great gift idea for office workers (at home or away)
  • Ideal for high school or college students
  • Includes wooden tray, long-handled rake, bamboo rake, broom
  • Two ceramic cranes, white sand and assorted polished rocks
  • 64 page meditation booklet included

See  desktop zen garden for more information – there are other varieties available.. and they’re all gorgeous!

Glitzy and Chic 2017 Planner from Target

Love at First Sight....

2017 Planner

2017 Planner from Target.com

I have a confession to make – I am a notebook organizer and pen fanatic. Obsessed is a better word for it. Whenever I’m in Target or on Target.com, I feel overwhelmingly compelled to check out their notebooks, organizers, and pens. They honestly have one of the best selections of office and school supplies you’ll find (online or off).

Each New Year I shop Target for just the right planner for that year. I’m feeling the one pictured above for 2017.  This 2017 planner has a modern look with the year decal in gold and polka dots. Since polka dots do it for me, I’m ordering this beauty asap.

  •  Beige planner with polka dots
  • 2017 calendar year planner
  • Thick quality pages
  • Thoughtful details throughout
  • Color: Beige

See 2017 Planner from Target.com for a closer look at this planner – you’ll also find a ton of other office and school planners to choose from, as well as countless other office supplies and organizing sanity savers.

Sometimes Motivation Comes Without a Single Word...

Walking Shadow, Hero by Jason Ratliff

When I saw this gorgeous artwork (Walking Shadow, Hero by Jason Ratliff) this morning on Amazon, I knew it had to be the newest entry in the Office Freaks Christmas Gift Guide. I’ve always known that motivation can come without a single word and this art drives my point home.

But good.

The artist has a similar work (Heroine) available featuring a little girl (with hands boldly on her hips!) with her own Super Girl shadow – it’s every bit as amazing as this one.

Fine art stretched canvas is 20 inches in height and 30 inches in width. Hand stretched over 1.5″ deep wood stretcher bars, this artwork includes its own wall hanging hardware. Manually numbered, signed, and shipped with a certificate of authenticity. Perfection in every way.

See Walking Shadow, Hero for a closer look and to learn more about the ridiculously creative and talented artist.
