We look at it all day long and I’m so stoked to now see a clean, inspiring space swiping through my favorite photos and affirmations! Here’s how to create yours! Be sure your phone is updated to the latest ios14 update.
Find a theme you love and purchase (between $3-$5). Save the icons to your camera roll.
Screen shot your favorites and save to your camera roll.
You can customize a calendar widget, and use the “photo” option to create widgets with the textures and quotes you saved from Pinterest. Do a series of small + medium widgets and be sure to name them descriptively.
*TIP!* If you want a rotation of photos or quotes, create a photo album(s) on your camera roll with the different photos + or quotes you’d like to use – then select the widget “photos from album” and select your album you want to use. I did this with my favorite Charlie photos and love seeing all the different ones every time I open my phone!
Now Apple has the “iPhone App Library” so you no longer have to have everything on your screen. I chose my top 20 used apps and deleted everything else to only appear in my library.
The Shortcut App is pre-downloaded on your phone so you can search for it in the Apps library. In the search bar type “open app” and select the open app shortcut.
For example: Instagram – then select the 3 dots on the top right
This is where you can rename your app and select your new icon from your camera roll. Select your “Instagram” icon and click save.
Make sure you click “done” and then “create new shortcut” for your next one.
Press down on an icon on your homescreen and select “edit home screen”.
Once you hit + scroll alllll the way to the bottom and select “Widgetsmith”, then select either medium or small, it will automatically add the last widget you created but once it’s on your home screen you can edit to change which one appears.
*TIP!* If you want a landscape or texture photo I have some island-themed wallpapers saved in the highlights on my Instagram @megbradyhouse!
