Weekly planner {free printable}

Oh man, it has been a BUSY time over at the Swan Pond. We've been working on something really big (EEK!) and while we are giddy with excitement, it's been equally daunting and scary.

You know the whole "where on earth do I start" thing? Well, that's the feels here at the studio SO we've made life a bit easier for ourselves with some awesome weekly planners to help keep us motivated (and sane!). Hop on over to The Pretty Blog to download yours for free!  We even added a couple of screen savers for good motivational measure! ;)
