{Freebie Friday} The 10 Best Of Year One

The {Freebie Friday} feature has been one of the most work, but most fun since starting this blog. I am no graphic designer, but I just love creating templates and designs for my own use and it’s even more great that you enjoy them too. On my recent trip home, I found box templates I had hand drawn and photocopied at Kinko’s onto card stock in high school to make graduating gifts for all my fellow classmates (I went to a relatively small school). I don’t think I had any idea I’d be still loving and doing the same thing so many years later, but now sharing them with fellow creative people all over the world.

Here is a roundup of my favorite and most popular in year one of Daydream In Color:

1. Flat Paper Bag Template & Floral Bags

2. Bonjour Monsieur Note Cards

3. Let’s Picnic! and Let’s Do This! Checklists

4. Raindrop Pattern Paper & Umbrella Mobile Tutorial

5. Bookmark Templates

6. Mad About Plaid Floral Note Cards

7. Colorful Reminder Alphabets


8. Citrus Labels and Tags

9. Striped Paper Sailboats

10. Lavender Simple Syrup Recipe & Label

{Freebie Friday} This Year I Will Goal List

With New Year’s approaching, a lot of us are thinking about how we want to change the things we do and how we do them. Whether it be reading more books, exercising more, eating better, or even spending more time with family. We’re all thinking about how we want to better ourselves. I used to spend a lot of time thinking about how I want this year to be different, but now I tend to focus on smaller goals and celebrate them. Little things like finally getting around to cleaning the receipts out of my bulging wallet or maybe planning out at least a week’s worth of meals to cook at home are just as worthy of that satisfied completion feeling.

I thought I’d spread this train of thought through today’s printable (nabbed the color palette from this post). Each week you can write down one achievable goal that you want to conquer along with any action items you can check off along the way. When you’re done, just write in your completion date and feel accomplished! If you are into New Year’s resolutions, you can do the same thing and feel accountable for any goals you may have set.

{Freebie Friday} 100 Things To Draw From Pikaland

Happy Friday! I’m flying to the Bay Area today for a much needed visit to the fam. Finally get to spread some Portland love (I always bring some P-town edibles), catch up with my fast growing nephew Evan, take my Mom shopping, take some “professional photos” of the fam (as my Mom put it), pick up my rotating cake turntable for my wedding cake gig later this summer, and get some tasty home cooked meals!

I’ll try to update with some pictures on Monday/Tuesday, but in the mean time enjoy this extensive list of things you can draw from Pikaland.

I love and slightly suck (OK maybe really suck) at drawing, but I continue to try in case maybe one day I’ll hit a drawing epiphany. But until then, I can cross off items one by one on this list to feel more accomplished in the process. You know I love them lists!

{Freebie Friday} Let’s Picnic! & Let’s Do This! Checklists

Happy Friday everyone! Sadly for me, I will be working 10 hours on both days this weekend so I don’t have much to celebrate. I AM, however, excited to share with you a gingham bordered checklist inspired by yesterday’s post about daydreaming at a picnic. I often border on being extremely organized and extremely not, but when other people are involved, I’m definitely the first because I never want to let anyone down. Since picnics are most fun when they involve other people, I put together a little checklist for you called “Let’s Picnic!” to use on future outings if you’re the planning type. Then, since it may not quite be picnic weather yet, I wanted you to be able to enjoy these freebies now by having a fill-in-the-blank checklist called “Let’s Do This!” for your everyday use.

  2. Print on copy paper.
  3. Cut along the solid lines.

I’d love to hear how you use these little checklists!

{Freebie Friday} I Heart Alphabet Lists

My girl bestie and I used to talk about how much we loved lists. We used them to remember every little bit of our lives. When all else failed, we would make a list, reference a list, or add to our lists. We had one for books we wanted to read, movies we’ve always meant to watch, assignments we had due, recipes we wanted to try, chores we still needed to finish, projects we hoped to make, and even skills we hoped to acquire someday. They were filled with everything we wanted to do in the near and far future and a way to clear our minds for the present.

After my Daydream in Alphabets post, I started thinking of ways I could still incorporate alphabets into my every day life. Then I began to wonder why all my lists were bulleted or numbered. Why couldn’t they be “lettered” instead? So with that I made a little printable to share that you will enjoy if you love lists as much as I do! There are 4 different color ways. You could even print and cut a stack and secure them at the top with a binder clip so they’ll always have them on hand. Let me know if you like them and I might make some mini lists to pair with them.
