    Download the free wall art templates. They come in two design themes with either a colorful background or white background. Use one design for a specific wall aesthetic theme, hang them hang as singular photos, or mix and match them in your own design.

    Another thing you’ll love about these 6in x 8in wall art pictures is the various convenient ways you can hang them on your wall. You can frame, tape, or hole punch and add a ribbon – and voila! I personally prefer framing and hanging them but frames for decorative imagery can get expensive so I use paper frames. For these printables, I would suggest using either Juvale’s black or white paper frames. You can take this craft to the next level by painting or using Halloween-themed washi tape to decorate the frame borders.

    The key is to be creative and have fun with them!

  • Easy Tips for Creating a Tranquil and Organized Home Workspace

    Organized Home Workspace mommyrandr valerie pierre

    Home workspaces at times can be hard to keep neat and organized. As moms, we get busy and our work area can quickly become a dumping ground for, well, everything. My desk can be cluttered with work, research, bills, and random kid things on its worst day. I’m sad to say that there are days when I barely have space to type and move the mouse. Then I wonder why I can’t find that post-it with that thought on it or I’m staring off into space.

    The thing you and I have to remember is when our desks are cluttered our minds become cluttered. Think about it, when you get to point break and finally clean your area, what happens afterward? Exactly, everything you were trying to get out before now pours out. Everything is clear and makes sense when earlier you were in a brain fog. While brain fogs are normal, many times it’s induced because our workspace isn’t conducive to productivity and creativity.

    How Does One Create a Tranquil & Organized Home Workspace?

    Organized Home Workspace mommyrandr valerie pierre

    First things first, your workspace should have a theme that reflects your personality. Color scheme, lighting, and decor should reflect the tone you want to set when at your workspace, not to mention comfort. My workspace is decorated in the ‘boho abstract’ style in color and decor. The pinks, tans, browns, deep yellows, and leafy greens make me feel calm and gives me inspiration.

    The next thing, your workspace should only contain are things that will radiate positive and motivational energy. This is to help you easily get into the zone of whatever you’re working on. I have a small cactus, art from the kids, a diffuser, crystals, boho artwork in my workspace. I also listen to LoFi Girl (formally ChilledCow) to really get into the zone.

    Lastly, I cannot tell you where to set up your workspace since every home is laid out differently. But what I can say is, if possible create a workspace that’s off to itself from the rest of the house so it won’t disturb you as much. Convert a nook or corner, or even a spare bedroom if you have space. Also, put your workspace near a window to give yourself natural sunlight and fresh air. You’d be surprised at how reenergized you’ll feel after opening your window for a breeze and sunlight.

    Before you start decorating take some time to think about what kind of vibe you want to immerse yourself in. You can choose a singular theme or you can create your own eclectic vibe. The key is to create a workspace that you will feel open-minded and productive in, and if something is throwing off the vibe, change it and keep changing it until it’s perfect for you.

    Keep Your Workspace Tranquil With These Items

    (Shop this image: 1. Desk, 2. Chair, 3. Lamp, 4. Organizer, 5. Diffuser, 6. Monstera plant, 7. Google Nest Mini, 8. Crystal, 9. Art, 10. Bookcase)

    How Do You Keep Your Area Organized

    For me, what I’ve found is taking a quick break mid-day to put away completed projects, using labeled folders and bins for things I will work on later, and throw away unwanted trash keeps the vibe going. Also, at the end of the night, I wipe down my desk and sweep around my area. I snack at my desk so I have to make sure to clean thoroughly.

    I also use a bookcase for storage along with clear plastic bins, to keep the aesthetic, for smaller items. As someone who owns lots of stationery materials, I have to keep them organized and together. You can use these items too or you can use decorative baskets or colorful cloth bins. I utilize a basket for magazines and books that I want in my immediate workspace area. It’s not overflowing because the key is to not have it look cluttered.

    Finally, tossing anything you know you don’t need. Like seriously, that note on your desk from 3 months ago that you can’t remember what it was for, trash it. That lunch menu you have three of already, trash two of them. For loose notes and things that you would like to keep get a whiteboard, special folder, or keep a digital note file. This will keep everything easily accessible if you needed it at the drop of a hat.

    In what ways do you make create a tranquil and organized home workspace?
