April + #YOLOmondays Link-Up!

April 1, 2013·

I hope you had a WONDERFUL Easter weekend! I know I did. It was low-key, spent the day Saturday hanging out with my family, and spent the day Sunday at an amazing worship celebration at church and then the rest of the day napping. Oh yeah.

What did YOU do this weekend?

I’ve been feeling super energized since getting over being sick last week and my blog brain is brewing with post ideas. I just have the hardest time being patient and writing them one at a time! Hahaha. Anyone else ever have that problem? Just me? No? I hope not.

Anywho. Well, we will get to those soon, but today, I have asked my sweet blog friend Rachel to guest post and share her AMAZING design skills with y’all and her April desktop calendar. (I use her calendars every month! I love them!) Enjoy!


Hi all you pretty people! My name is Rachel and I blog over at lala Lists. While I am super happy to be here, I do know how much these annoying guest posts can be, so I won’t bore you. You can go here if you want to learn more about me. We all have super busy, crazy, maddening lives and sometimes it is hard to keep track of things. Well I want to help you with that!

As a graphic design student I love making pretty things. As a type-A
personality I go mad for calendars and planners. I decided to combine my
love of the two and create a little freebie. So last month I made my first desktop calendar and absolutely loved the process, so I decided to give it another go! I call it Aztec in April.

Whaddya think? There are 9 different sizes for different screen resolutions. If you don’t know your computer’s dimensions, you can go check here. I hope you like it and I would love to hear any feedback you may have! I also hope you stop on by lala and say hi because I love to meet new bloggers and if you follow Molly, you must be a pretty fabulous bunch!

Pretty please?
