Projects | Time Management | Goals Happy New Year!

I always start out projects with a bang and gusto and excitement and then... life happens and I don't complete the project. Am I the only one like that? Well, starting December 31st and continuing onward, each project I begin will be different and WILL hold my full and complete attention. I will complete it. I will stay with one project at a time. I am giving myself positive affirmations and early New Year's Resolutions. I think I need a little head start in getting my head wrapped around the New Year's Resolution.  I need a plan to follow-through with my actions. Behavioral modification if you will. So starting tomorrow...
  • I will be Attentive
  • I will be Focused
  • I will be Organized
  • I will manage my Time 
How will I do these things?
  • I will stay-on-task and not be lead astray.
  • I will have a list.
  • I will put everything away immediately. rather than creating piles
  • I will have a work schedule with meetings with myself to complete certain tasks by a certain time.
Well, there you have it. I resolve to do these things starting today. What goals have you set for yourself? I hope that whatever your goals are that you will attain them this year!

excuse the mess. the children are making memories...

I was inspired by some subway art that I came across with this quote and decided to make my own little piece to frame and keep somewhere around the house as a reminder when my house is such a mess... and I'm tripping over toys, clothes, sneakers, backpacks, etc. It is truly just a glimpse in time, a blink, a brief, fleeting moment in time, when the kids are small and living with us. Here's a just a little reminder that messes are just messes... that can always be cleaned up... later.

Enjoy the free download. Just click on the photo to download.

The Flu...

So sorry I have not blogged in such a long time! I do have a good excuse. The FLU hit the house. We always get the flu shot every year (the dead, inactive injection)... and have no problems aside from a sore arm for a day or two. BUT this year, we went with the nasal mist (a weakened live virus). Well, the next day one of my little ones and I got hit, hard, with the flu. Maybe we were coming down with something to begin with, maybe not. All I know is it. was. not. fun. So, after the flu we got colds. Everyone in the house.

Well, I'm now on the mend and excited to get started on my december daily album! I've completed the album, have taken pictures, but haven't had time to journal or get anything into the album, yet. I basically followed Ali Edwards design. I changed it up a bit with the items i had on hand, but for the most part it is similar. Here are some photos in the meantime of my version of the album. (More to come for sure).

I had originally made the "25" all white, but I didn't like how it looked when I finished it. So, I added in some red and now am loving it. I think I may have liked paper too.
