Making life a little simpler

i'm thankful for many things that happened in 2009 but i'm glad we are already on to something new - i have a good feeling about 2010 and i can't wait to fill all those little blocks of the new calendar with amazing stuff!

as far as resolutions for this year...... i haven't really made a list (and i love lists) but the goal will be to SIMPLIFY.  clutter drives me crazy and makes my life stressful so i think this is a goal which can have amazing effects in many areas of my life.
i want to tackle routines, finances, online stuff & home organization (room by room). in order to simplify i have to purge, organize and prioritize & of course doing it one area at a time! my closet would be the perfect place to start -taking out things i haven't worn in a while and keeping only the things i really need. one more idea here is simply to refuse to buy any more items with a "dry clean only" label unless it is a definite must! a smaller dry cleaning bill would be an extra plus.

i'll work on different things as time moves on and hopefully by the end of the year the only place with lots of stored items will be the folder with my finished scrapbook pages!

so how about you? made your new year resolutions yet? if you have, the very best of luck achieving all of your goals!

now on to the digi-scrapping news:

  7. Your blog is so easy on the eyes. I hear you about the clutter - I'm working on it, too. But your site is a beautiful example of "clutter free" and stands out like a shining star among the blinkie-mad, plaid-mad, busy as a bee normal digiscrap blogs. Thanks!

    P.S. Are you the only person who understands that white = good?
