Blogger Life: Transforming My Home Office With Staples

Thank you, Staples, for sponsoring today’s post and helping me transform my home office. As always, all opinions are my own. #MakeMoreHappen

For the longest time, I’ve wanted a home office, and today, I’m SO EXCITED to share what it looks like with you guys! It’s still a work-in-progress, but I finally have a dedicated workspace where I can sit down and get some stuff done! It’s just a little corner of my bedroom, but I love it so much and I couldn’t have done it without some help from my friends at Staples and their Copy and Print department.

So let’s talk about this. First things first, I decided that it was finally time to get myself some business cards. And if you’re a creative business owner or a blogger, I highly recommend you get some too. The process was super simple, and that made me happy because I don’t have time for anything complicated these days. I  just downloaded a business card template from Creative Market, edited it in Photoshop, and then uploaded it onto the Staples website and placed my order. The next day, they were ready for pickup!

250 business cards for $29.99 and they came out SO GOOD!

Now I feel super legit.

Then I decided to get some prints made. I’ve been wanting to put together a gallery wall above my desk so I bought some downloadable prints on Etsy and then took them to Staples to have them professionally printed.

Exactly what I need to stay motivated!

I downloaded them onto my computer, put them on a flash drive, and took them to Staples where they printed them out for me. Again, super easy! Look how pretty they look!

But I wasn’t done with the print shop just yet. I still had a few things that I wanted to print out to help with my blogging business.

Like my media kit!

I got this media kit template from HP Media Kits a log time ago, but I figured it might be handy to keep a few paper copies in case I ever want to physically hand one to a company.

I also had Staples print out these to-do lists and planners to help keep me organized and on track with my blogging goals.

    I love your desk! I love how it’s so white and clean with pops of color (esp the watercolor print!). I’m working on reorganizing and restructuring my work-and-art-space too, but I need a space about 4x the size of that one. 🙈 Maybe I should make my boys share a room and I can turn one of the bedrooms into a studio, lol!!

    Your home office is so adorable, and it must be great incentive to do wonderful things! I could use office essentials, I’m still functioning out of boxes and sitting on the floor. It is easy to keep putting things off when it isn’t very inviting!
