I am a new person today. Order has been restored where yesterday it was nothing but chaos. Okay, I exaggerate but I do feel good now that my new organizational tool has been gussied up and is ready to rock.
It started with a big, ugly pile of papers and a trip to the thrift store
I used a template that I found here and some leftover paint. As you know, I'm addicted to Minwax furniture wax so of course, it ended up with a little of that to seal it. Not too shabby for a $3 box. Now let's just see if I can stay organized.
Each family member has a file folder to collect papers, etc. There's my cute owl daytimer 'cause I'm old school. I have note pads to jot down shopping lists and the rest of the junk has found its way to the recycling bin.
On a completely separate note, I really love all the encouraging replies and emails I've been getting from people lately as my little blog chugs along. It's the nicest thing to hear that somebody else likes what you're doing. I had to share this very funny email I received today. It made me laugh out loud..."Really, I love what you're doing with the blog. You make these projects accessible. Martha Stewart makes me feel like a loser. You make me feel like it's ok to have a glass of wine and try again!"
How awesome is that??? Have a fabulous weekend everyone!
