We have big hopes for all the things that can happen in a year, don't we? So big, in fact, that it's easy to feel overwhelmed. This blog is about keeping things simple and fun, sharing tools for getting stuff done, and learning how to balance it all...calmly. Because you know what? Life doesn't have to be crazy to count.

Check out the categories below for ideas and inspiration. We're focusing on a different one each month!

April: Easter + Getting Ready for Spring

Glittery Pink and Gold Valentines

{ image by Sherry Heck }

If you’d like to send a handwritten note to a special valentine this year, theseĀ Glittery Pink and Gold Valentines would be perfect. The pastel confections are the result of a collaboration between Becca of CAKE and Michele of Cakewalk Baking, who are guest posting at One Charming Party this week. The free download includes four different 3×5-inch notecard designs, plus a circle design that you could use for stickers or favor tags. All you need is white or ivory card stock, a sheet of printable sticker paper, and a 2-inch hole punch.

    You never know, Steph. I try to keep my expectations low. And then I’m pleasantly surprised if things go well.
