With the New Year upon us, it's time to get organize and break out that long list of New Year resolutions! If you're like me, you may love making lists, but making a New Year's resolution list is a bit more daunting. A few years ago, I started reading about how people were choosing certain words, to represent what they wanted to accomplish in the New Year. For example, someone's word for the New Year might be ''Purpose''. To them this could mean, living on purpose, finding their purpose, etc.
I really love this whole concept of choosing a word to inspire your actions for the New Year. However, remembering that particular word that you chose, on a day to day bases, is a different story. I mean let's be honest, most of us probably forget our resolutions after the first month!
So to stay inspired all year, I thought it would be fun to create a project that combines New Year organization and inspiration!
Today's project is an Inspiring Desk Caddy!
Now if you didn't know, Blitsy has a wonderful assortment of wooden items that can help you get organized and (of course) be decorated! One of those wooden items, is desk caddies. The desk caddy I'm using in today's project, has two slots and measures 5.5 x 6.5 x 3 inches. It's really the perfect size to be on a desk because it's not too big, but can still hold a good amount of stuff. I'm using the taller version, however there is also a shorter version available.
When making this project, the only thing you have to be cautious about is the size of your wooden letters. You want to make sure that you buy smaller wooden letters, so they fit on the front of your desk caddy. The wooden letters I used were 1.25 inches. Now you could use bigger wooden letters that are 1.75 inches, but your word choices maybe limited due to their larger size. So it's just something to keep in mind, while you're making this project.
