Happy New Year 2016!

Happy New Year Friends! I don't know about you but I am so ready for a fresh start! 

The first thing I want to do is get organized! Luckily I received some great organizational tools/planners and such to start the organizational process! The lovely planner you see above was a gift from my daughter Jenn, and I am already filling it up with appointments, appointments and more appointments! I do love pretty paper products! (Paper Source--For website link, click here )

It has a matching spiral notebook/journal where I  can jot down my ideas for future blog posts and new handcrafted items for my ETSY shop.

My daughter also gave me a productivity workbook and business planner for 2016  and a one-year editorial planner as well. So there's really no excuse for disorganization now is there? Well.....

.....I ended the year with a series of family emergencies, crises and hospital and rehab stays with my mom. Then just as the new year was about to arrive, it was a speedy ride in an ambulance back to the hospital for a few more nights sleeping in my recliner in the ICU lounge. I've slept so many nights in that chair that I have actually formed an emotional attachment to it. We are friends! Best friends really! I am hoping that I never have the need to use it again but in the event that I do, I know it will be there waiting for me!

The events of the last three months have left me in such a state of utter disorganization that I don't  know where to begin. I feel overwhelmed. Summer clothes are not put away, the Christmas tree is still standing, wrapping paper tubes are all over my dining room, dirty laundry is piling up, and I've only grocery shopped three times since October 23rd, get the picture.

So my goal for now, at this very early stage of 2016 is to reclaim my home, my life and my sanity. I know it's probably a tall order but I just cannot function amidst all this chaos! Wish me luck!
Happy New Year!
