I never imagined I would work from home. Addie’s health issues in her NICU days caused me to step back from teaching and I had to reevaluate what I would do for a living. After allowing blogging to fill in that gap, I became a freelance blogger and writer. Over time, that love of writing grew and I found myself working towards writing my book series, Authentically Addie. I love the flexibility that working from home has allowed me, and it’s been an absolute blessing as my full time job these past 7 years. While working from home allows me flexibility, I can always use help with productivity because of our busy schedule. I’ve found a handful of must-have home office essentials that have made my days easier, and I wanted to share them with you!
I have had my eye on a Cricut machine for many years now. I love feeding my creativity and getting a Cricut is a fun way for me to do that for my book business. The Cricut Explore 3 is one of my favorite home office essentials. You can cut, draw, score, and more with faster speed and precision. It’s actually 2x faster than its predecessor! I’ve been having fun making stickers, signs, shirts, and more with my Cricut Explore 3 using materials from cardstock, vinyl and iron-on, to glitter paper & bonded fabric. This product is absolutely THE must-have home office essential for everyone.
As a blogger and author, I am always writing things down. Whether it’s writing down a new business contact’s email or phone number, scribbling ideas down for my next book, or making a quick to-do list, I always like having some kind of paper and pen in my purse just in case I need. I have loved using my Levenger Carrie Leather Pen Case and TrueWriter Classic Sparkle Rollerball Pen to jot things down. With a perfectly weighted pen, 3×5 notecards, and a beautifully made leather case, this set is perfectly purse-sized so you don’t forget a thing! Don’t forget this home office essential- it has been SO helpful with all my ideas!
I’m no stranger to G-SHOCK watches. I have several and just love them! The new GMAS2100-4A is slim, stylish, and lightweight, while being durable enough to withstand my hectic life. This pale pink with rose gold accents is my absolute favorite, especially because it complements my wedding ring. Whether you’re working from home, chasing kids, running to a meeting, or anything else- this watch is perfect for all of it!
