It's another rainy day in Texas. For many of you it's another SNOWY day! When I see what my friends in Minnesnowta are dealing with I am indeed grateful that it's just rain!
What do you do on a rainy day/snowy day? Well it is a great time to assess your abode. Does it feel like you? Does it serve you well? How do you "feel" when you pull in your driveway or get out of bed in the morning? Make a list of your feelings and/or of the items that just don't serve you and your family.

Do you and your sweetheart celebrate Valentines Day? We do not. Many years ago I found myself in a department store on Valentines day. The store was filled with men, men with a look of PANIC on their faces! They would pick up an item, look at it, put it back and hurry on to something else. FEAR gripped them!!

Maybe its the ADD but I just can't seem to focus on things when I am in chaos! And sometimes that chaos and lack of focus make it extremely had to get started...because WHERE do I start?? Here are a few things that work for me and then I will tell you THE BEST Organization system EVER!! What works for me: I ask myself the following questions- 1. What area is causing me the most amount of frustration? 2. Can it be solved/organized/beautified quickly? 3. Can a few changes help until I have time for a complete OrganizeDesign? 4. Schedule time for an OrganizeDesign session. For me it kind of becomes a triage way of scheduling. What ever area is making me CrAzY, that is where I start. Mail and clutter on the kitchen island is a source of chaos for me. This is something I try to take care of every...
I did a presentation for high school girls of faith. They are looking forward to graduation and then college. With that brings excitement, joy, some sense of fear of the unknown and adult life. This of course applies to all of us. We all can have a sense of excitement, joy and fear of the unknown regardless of our age or stage in life. With that in mind, we discussed how to create a space that invites the spirit. A few of the ideas we discussed:
1.Surround yourself with images of your faith, be it artwork, sculptures or quotes. They serve as a visual reminder of what makes us strong.
2. This does not have to be expensive. You can be create your own artwork by being creative.
3. Keep a journal of your spiritual experiences. This will be a gift to you when you find yourself in a difficult time. Choose a color and style that brings you joy.
was truly a labor of love. I hope you are inspired.
