Organization (It's not a dirty word)

photo from msliving.com

I have a huge need to organize right now. It almost feels like the "nesting" instinct when I was pregnant. So I better take full advantage of it and organize the heck out of my life and home. I have a few plans, like bringing in my little secretary desk, which has been in storage and I have missed so. I have also decided that for me to enjoy organizing I need to use pretty organizational aides. Here are some pretties that I have found and if these office products can't help then there is no help!

You can find these here

I have a huge crush on pretty file folders. I want to buy them all!!! But I need somewhere to put them. And I love, love, love clip boards! I refuse to pay what they want just because they stick a piece of contact paper to them, so I will make my own.

Isn't this idea amazing? One more project added to my ever-expanding-list of things I need to make. I just love using everyday objects in new and interesting ways. Makes me smile:)

Merry Christmas!

"Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord. And ... ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger" (Luke 2:1012).

My Current Project

I'm remodeling the bathroom in my parents' home. Here are the before pics. Right now it is a black hole but soon it will be a beautiful, inviting room. Well, as inviting as bathrooms go.



Stay tuned for "after" pics. I hope it's done before Christmas!

Let The Holiday Baking Begin!

I love to bake at Christmas time. Maybe it's the cold weather keeping me inside that gives me the need to nest and make sure my family is well fed. Or maybe it's all the recipes that come out for holiday baking. Whatever the reason, I love it. (And so does everyone I share with:) Here is a small selection of what I will be baking this Christmas season. Enjoy!

Brownie Lollipops

Sugar Spritz Cookies

I got one of those cookies presses last year and I haven't used it too much. But I will!

Finnish Ribbon Cookies eveningedge.com

One of the sisters in my ward made these for Enrichment and they were so delicious! The lemon adds an amazing flavor.

Mexican Wedding Cookiesjoyofbaking.com

In the Dec. issue of Real Simple they had these cookies in egg cartons and then I knew I had not been saving all my egg cartons in vain. What a perfect gift for friends and neighbors.
