Hi guys! Long time no see, right? Basically, we both got swallowed up by SXSW, and then things just got busy after that. BUT we’re back, and we have some ah-maze-ing plans for 3WI on the horizon!
Here’s a sneak peek:
Oh, what’s that? You want to see more? WISH GRANTED.
Pretty hot, right? Yeah. That’s what I thought.
In the coming weeks, you can expect:
- the official Three Wishes Industries manifesto
- more printable hotness
- actual NOTEBOOKS for order (oh yes! as soon as we find a feasible way to print them, and we already have some ideas for that)
In the meantime, if you want to hear about all of that awesomeness as soon as it comes out, or see more sneak peeks, follow us on Pinterest or sign up for the mailing list over there on your right. See you soon!
Sometimes I GET so overwhelmed with all of the stuff I have to do that I don’t even feel like I can get 1 thing done. Because I have so many in-progress projects, I LOVE the feeling of at least getting one thing off my plate. This past week it was taking me FOREVER to get around to ordering business cards for sxsw. I made it my 1 goal for Wednesday and I FINALLY got it done.
I created this little printable for you to use to get 1 thing done everyday. I use the big space at the bottom for a post-it note. That way, you can use the same page over and over again. In the future, we want to make post-it notes with this concept in mind. — Shenee
The idea with this daily goal template is that you can print it out, put it inside a picture frame, and then use it over and over again – like so:
Voila! Re-usable daily planning – less dead trees and it’s pretty to boot!

Michelle and I will be heading to SXSW and we will be doing something a little different. Instead of the typical business cards, we will be creating little notebooks for people at the event. Here is a preview of what we will be creating. There are white and black versions. What do you like better? — Shenee
Things I love about this clock:
- It is TURQUOISE. Turquoise, y’all. Turquoise is my favorite shade of blue. And it stands out so nicely against that drab gray building!
- The scrollwork. I am a sucker for scrollwork and fancy looking design.
- The attention to detail! The scrollwork is super intricate. Even the clock face is well designed – check out those hands, Roman numerals, and the detail around the edge of the clock. Despite the fact that – I’m guessing – most people who see this clock can’t easily discern details like that, the creator still included them anyways. Love that.

Hi there! As you know, we are talking about FOOD this week. I created a little menu planner for you this week. I envision this as a shopping list you would take to the grocery store! I always find that when I am there, I want to see both the shopping list and the stuff I want to make. Somehow that makes it easier. What do you think? — Shenee

So, this week we are all about FOOD. Nom. Nom. I just recently went greenish. Something like vegetarian and vegan with the occasional shrimp now and then. I cook mostly vegan for myself and to keep myself from eating peanut butter and jelly sandwiches all the time, I have developed a very substantial pintrest to catalog vegan recipes. Here are some of my favorites. Click the image to get the source and recipe through pinterest!

So, we (we = me & my husband, Matt) cook a lot of our own food. By a lot, I mean, pretty much all of it.
One of the notebooks we (we here being the Three Wishes Industries crew) have planned for sometime down the road is a foodie notebook. Ideally, I’d like for it to be about half recipe tracking – writing down recipes & how you modify them, and how those modifications affected the taste/cooking time/etc. – and half meal planners. I’d like to get in the habit of using a weekly mean planner and I’m having a really hard time doing so because I haven’t found anything that suits my needs.
Most meal planners are designed to be aesthetically pleasing but don’t quite suit my organizational needs (which…might be a little extreme. I like to be organized, okay?).
Throwing some ideas out, here’s what I’d like to see on a meal planner:
- A “snacks” section, for foods that can be prepped at the beginning of the week and munched on throughout the rest of the week
- A “staples” section, for foods that will need to be re-bought week after week, no matter what’s on the menu this specific week
- A “meals” section, possibly divided into “entree” and “side dishes”, with ample space for writing down multiple meals for each day
- A place for noting which meals will be pre-prepped and refrigerated/frozen at the beginning of the week, and which ones will have to be made on the spot
- And, although I can’t imagine this would be something most people need, it would be pretty cool to have a place for keeping track of when I’ll need to switch the kombucha around!
That’s a lot of information – it might need to be spread out across two pages to be easily usable without being cramped. Another thing I’d like to see would be something for people who are just starting the meal planning process – we tend to have several go-to meals, and it’d be nice to have a worksheet or brainstorming sheet where I could list out our “go to meals” (with one or two options for breakfast, lunch, and dinner) and creating an ingredients list for that, so that I’d then only have a few slots each week to fill with something new, and I could just re-use the “go to” ingredients list from week to week.
Tell me – what would the components of your perfect meal planner be? (We may or may not have a printable coming…stay tuned! All the more reason to give us your thoughts!)
You know, I love me some daily planning, but the problem I run into is that most planners give you too much space – if I have that much free space, I’ll fill it with everything I can and end up working a 12 hour day. No bueno. So to help head that tendency off, I created this little self-care planner – it’s intended to help you get into a practice of checking in with yourself on a regular basis, as well as reminding you that you can only do so much in a day and that’s okay.

As we start to develop the look and feel of 3WI, I’ve been digging around the shops of other cool people to see how they go about representing their own point-of-view on their sites. I just stumbled upon the amazing Wit Shop. Their products have an AMAZING sense of humor and each item they create feels special. My favorites:The Calender and Sudoku puzzle cards. I’ve been thinking of ways to infuse our personalities into the notebooks we will be creating. Here are some images and check out the rest of the amazing stuff here. — Shenee
