White Walls Are Nice

I first came across that lovely office space in the upper right hand corner while visiting Jenn at A Home in the Making and it really struck me as a lovely space that I could get creative in. Well as it usually is on the internet one thing leads to one hundred things and many hours layer on Pinterest I had pinned rooms with lots of white space and pops of color. Some people may think white walls are boring but I like the brightness that comes with them - like a blank canvas to allow ideas to get moving.

Paper, Paper Everywhere

I am a organizing freak - give me matching plastic containers and a label maker and I am one VERY happy girl. But there is one aspect of my life that does not fit neatly in a container, and it's the day to day. Between appointments, assignments, and the activities of a very busy 10 year old on most days my to do is a game of where did I write that down and where did I put it? My inner Martha Stewart silently weeps- I just know it.

Now dont think I am not a planner kind of girl- I love planners!!! They hold such promise of an organized year ahead of me and I collect them like I do sketchbooks. I fill them with lists and then put it down and hardly look at it again until I add more things with the intention of lugging it around with me. I am genuinely surprised that I make it to any of the items I am scheduled for, thank God for follow up phone calls.

So I need to find something that works and travels with me, my solution is to try I and go paperless this year. I am not sure how it will go for a girl who likes to write things down ( something about typing it just doesn't feel the same to me), but I have many apple products that play nicely with one another and a new calendar app that practically promised to make my life more streamlined and less cluttered.

How do all you beautiful people keep track of things? Any apps you can't live without?

Fancy Feathers

Don't you love old photographs - the people always look so fancy to me. I just purchased three fun vintage photos from Etsy and I'm not sure what to do with them, but they are fun to look at. Here is just a fun combo to start out the week.

This is what last week looked like for me. One of our chairs is done and it is pretty fantastic. I have to take a proper picture of it to share with you all. 

One thing I have learned about myself is that if I say I am going to do something (take a picture every day) I typically have a hard time following through, but if I just keep my mouth shut and do something it works out better for me - what's that about?

Classy Lady

Every now and then I come across a picture and I think - why don't I dress like this? Case in point...

I really like how simple and chic pencil skirts are, throw in the fun colors they have at J. Crew and you can't go wrong. I really hate spending money, but I think I may need to purchase some new closet staples and class things up around here.

Running Start.

2012 - can you believe it?!?! I hope you all had a wonderful holiday and were able to spend some time getting rejuvenated and rested. I had a nice break, but by day 5 I was a bit antsy and wanting to get back to the grind. 

I have decided to take a little bit of pressure off of myself this year. I guess you can say my resolution is to be kinder to myself, it's hard to be creative when you don't give yourself the freedom to make mistakes. 

So I resolve to keep finding my own voice, take more pictures, laugh as much as possible, and enjoy my morning cups of coffee in a less frantic manner.

Do you make resolutions or is it overdone?
