So when I did my last post on the guest basket, I so thought I was done with my basket. I was just going to put some random bow on it. So I pulled out my ribbons, and played around with a bow, and NOTHING looked good. So then I was just going to leave it be, but then I thought if I did a pleated ribbon, it might work better. So I took some burlap trim from my Lost & Found Sunshine set, and just folded it as I ran it through the sewing machine. Then I played around with that and it was so cute draped in the front, but the draping called for a cute banner. So off I went to design and print a banner. And voila, the perfect cherry on top.
I also added the water bottles with their label, put the flossers in that I had forgotten, and made little tags for the toiletries:
Here is a sneak peak of the guest room, all ready for our guests:
I really am done now! If you want to download the graphics to make your own welcome banner, here is a free PDF download:

I have to get some designing done, but now that the baby is awake more than he is asleep, I need a little bit of help taking care of him during the day. Unfortunately Mr. Project has the strict priority of getting the kitchen done, so he needs to use all his non-working time to work on the kitchen, which leaves me at about a 5% productivity level. This has resulting in me getting almost zero work done that requires more than a 10 minute attention span. So I have someone coming to help half days with little Ollie, but I’ll need to be able to effectively communicate and be communicated back his schedule without a lot of talking. So I created this Baby Log for his nanny to keep track of all his naps, feedings, and diaper happenings during the time she is with him, so that when she leaves I can take over without missing a beat. I also made a cute little notes area at the bottom where I can give her instructions like “put away baby’s laundry” or “feed him peas this afternoon” etc. I’m sure that a lot of other working moms or just busy moms could use something similar so if you have a baby that you need to keep track of, here is a little free download baby log to help out!

So now that I’m starting to get back into the swing of things after having my cute little baby, I have been trying to figure out the best way to keep myself on task and organized. Having a little one is hard because my schedule is constantly changing based on when his naps are, and though he’s on a pretty regular schedule, for some reason his nap time and duration change a lot still.
I made this “2-week schedule” to keep me on task with a”morning” “afternoon” and “evening” sections. This way I can divide my daily tasks into chunks to get done while he is napping or otherwise occupied. It also gives me a lot of flexibility with my time as well as freeing me up more during the day since I don’t feel so overwhelmed by such a large to-do list. I also like that it is 2 weeks long so I can see and plan for the upcoming week and see what deadlines I need to be thinking of that are around the corner. For now I printed 2 sheets so that I have a whole month in front of me.
I created a blank version for you to download free (for personal use only). Click on the image to download the PDF file.
