As Promised....Another FREE Printable. Hello Bloggers!

Disorganization Bug Got Your Blog Down?

Rid yourself of that pest with a simple blog planner I've designed for you. Actually, I designed for myself because I needed it (really, I did), and thought you might too.

This is a weekly blog planner designed for 8.5x11 sheet of paper that will fit nicely into a 3 ring binder. I'm BIG on 3 ring binders.....I've got at least one for each client (beyond our etsy shop- Bates Mercantile Co. - I've owned my own advertising, marketing and pr business for 17+ years).  Binders help guessed it, stay organized. Well, relatively organized.

The free printable planner has a place for the week's date, your daily post ideas and notes, any guest posts you're doing on other blogs, guest posts you're hosting and a spot for next weeks ideas.  As you can see, I'm already using mine.

If you're a blogger, trust need this. Just click the image and save to your computer or copy and paste into a document. Print, punch holes, fill out and blog away!  In case you hadn't noticed, I also started to organize the free printables available on Mercantile Muse on their own dedicated page so they're easy to find. 

Click away.

If you like our free printables and the rest of the blog, why not follow us? You can do so via google, or you can subscribe via email and receive Mercantile Muse in your inbox, or you can get the Muse via feed......all three options are in the column to the right.  I'd really appreciate it if you'd tell your friends about Mercantile Muse too.

A Shout Out To Some Fellow Bloggers

First, Courtney Jo at TheEverythingAboutSoap blog. Let me first say, Courtney Jo blogs about much more than the gorgeous soaps she makes. Secondly, take a look at these pecan turtles she made and blogged about yesterday. See what I mean? More than soap. These turtles are looking like some good eatin'. Plus, Courtney Jo blogs, makes natural soaps and cooks turtles all while corralling twins. Yeehaw cowgirl!

While you're checking out her turtle recipe, take a look at today's post. It's got a GIGANTIC list of giveaways!! Fun, fun, fun.

Secondly, ByTheBookPaper's Kristen has been nice enough to interview me for an upcoming feature.  When the date is set, I'll give you a heads up. You might find out something about me that you didn't already know. Today, for you tea lovers, Kristen has featured a great how too for a traveling tea wallet for your tea bags. Being the tea drinker I am, I love this idea - perfect for my suitcase! Of course, I need a new sewing machine to get that project done though. Never the less. If you have a sewing machine and like tea, head on over to the tutorial.

Next, another big THANKS to Jaime at Crafty, Scrappy, Happy for featuring my chair makeover on her blog this week and also a giveaway of one of my printables. I received so much wonderful feedback on our shop.

Yesterday Jaime hosted another blogger, Lucy from Craftberry Bush, and her tutorial was AWESOME and I have to share.  Love the hot look of antlers but can't afford them? Well, check these out!

Lucy's tutorial on Crafty, Scrappy, Happy rocks. You just won't believe it.

If you visit any of these blogs, please tell them I sent you!

Sunset Meadows

Hey, did you notice........not a lot of sunset meadows pics this week? Been kind of rainy and gray.  Hopefully that won't last too long. Here's one from the files, just because I can.

This was from March, so as you can see........our sunset here are brilliant all year.

S.H.I.T.!!!! As Gar says. So Happens It's Thursday! Enjoy every minute of it.

Ciao for now~

  4. You always have the best printables! I've been wanting to share some of my wrap around label designs that were originally created for my shop and my sisters wedding. I couldn't find any good ones so I painstakingly created my own and have dozens I don't use - it's all about when to fit it in. Thank you for the shout out - it is so nice to hear when people enjoy my blog because I pretty much blab about what I love and hope for the best reaction from others, LOL!

  5. Thanks Courtney Jo....look for more. I'm thinking a printable 'bigger picture' blog planner to go in my binder.....(and yours :)

    Love to see the 'em!

    Keep up the good work!
