I finshed my wall.. Now what?

My big resolution for 2013? No resolutions. Those things are so clichéd. I mean, really. EVERYONE is out and about making resolutions at the beginning of the new year, and those that aren’t talking about making them, are making clichéd jokes about breaking them.

Bah Humbug. 

No resolutions for me. I am going to wait until May to decide on MY new years resolutions. That way, I can decide if I want to tell people about them AND I can decide how long I want to give myself to keep them. Why May? Why Not. My life, my rules.

But one thing I DID tell myself a few months back that I finally got around to doing was ORGANIZING my desk space. In my head I had visions of a really super interactive workspace where I could write my brainstorms, my lists, my to-do’s, my to-don’t’s and everything in between so I could stay on a schedule. I like to have everything right in front of me to see and be reminded of at all times… but unless I am anally organized, I’m a total effing mess. There. Is. No. Middle. Ground.

But yesterday I finished my great new WALL OF FUNCTION!

I am very excited to see if it actually keeps me functioning.





Decluttering!!! Doing a little bit every day will keep the momentum going- I can FEEL IT!!!

today was just me and the kids and Ithought “I’m gonna get NO Decluttering done!” But keeping my expectations low, I managed to get through two important drawers and a lot of my Family room shelves. I’ll save the shelves for when they’re REALLY done. but check out some of the drawers:



… I stole those pink baskets from the pens in my other junk drawer- planning to buy as little as possible!!!! And the Ikea kids cutlery made it’s way into a different drawer. Behold:



Those hanging Ikea baskets work great on the rails, and I have them just because I figured they’d be good for SOMETHING (I also keep hair elastics and barrettes in them in the bathroom)

It feels great to open  up the drawers and be able to just grab something…. almost makes me want to do dishes!!! (almost)


What are some of your Before & Afters?
