It IS Easy Being Green!

Friday, January 25, 2013

Pantone has declared the official color for 2013....

How exciting is that?! So, what do we know about green? It is a color of elegance and beauty that enhances our sense of well being, balance and harmony. Google's definition gives us synonyms of growth and prosperity. Some would say it's the color of money! Well, I say, 'Kermit!! It's all you 2013 baby!!'

My Office

Friday, January 18, 2013

The doors will remain closed...
Ok, so I have an office now. And for the first several months it served as a storage area. I finally got in there and started making it look like an office. I cleared out the boxes, and the junk!!! Now I have been able to get in here, it's like a different world OUTSIDE the house, especially when I close the doors!!!

My husband is not used to it yet, he's trying to figure out why I have the doors closed.... So he keeps coming in asking me stuff. Hilarious! The doors will remain closed when I am in here. I'm going to make this my vacation space. I am soo focused in here. I love it.

My new space is wonderful! Now I have to decorate. This is gonna be exciting! The doors will remain closed...

Holiday Clean - up

Tuesday, January 8, 2013

Ok so, I think I am late. Most people cleaned up their Christmas decor and mess the first weekend in January. I am always still relishing in the holiday after New Year's Eve! Plus, this holiday, I went out almost every single night to either a Christmas Party or a dinner! By the time everything calmed down, I still had to go through my whole - 'aww Christmas is over' period and I finally got down to cleaning Sunday!

When I first looked at the mess, I immediately got overwhelmed. Of course I called my good friend Shanelle, the professional organizer and re-designer so she could say, 'I'll be over!' OMG, she didn't answer!!! So I was stuck with


The other issue I was having was the fact that I was going from Christmas cardboard boxes to proper Christmas bins and storage containers. The stuff that I didn't use this year was not organized, it was placed into whatever box it could fit into. So I had a complete organization situation in front of me at 8:00 p.m. on a Sunday night. Serious business....

At any rate, I DID IT!!! My organizational guru (Shanelle) had given me a Christmas bin for Christmas (yay!!) and I had purchased two of my own. So I sys-tem-ma-ti-cally (painful) placed balls with balls, ornaments with ornaments, put all the colored snowflakes in plastic baggies and all the wreaths in a wreath container!!!

I am soooo proud of myself. And I got it done in one night!!! Whoo hoo! Sadi. organized. 2013!! Let's go!!

Yours Truly,
