I've been on an organizing spree lately, as I'm sure a lot of you are this time of year. There's something about the start of a new year that makes me want to go through everything, get rid of stuff we don't need or use and organize the rest of it.
It is a challenge having an office in my bedroom. My goal has been to have it be pretty and functional, while not looking like an office. I also want it to flow with the rest of the room.
Last weekend, I went through years of old tax documents and past paperwork so I could get it pared down to just the last seven years.
It took me an entire Saturday and I'm still not quite through with getting everything organized. I had my office on the brain when I found some beautiful gray and white frames at Target on clearance.
This one went on my desk. I popped a picture of my kids into it. The picture was taken on a trip to Sea World in San Antonio a few years ago.
Once, I put the statue in the living room on the bookcases and my kids were absolutely mortified to have a statue of a naked woman out there. I had no idea they would react so strongly to it. I thought it was so funny that they found it so embarrassing. Anyway, I felt like she belonged in my room so she didn't stay in the living room long (much to my kids relief).
my goals for this year, I want to get my room finished. I also want to get the office area more organized and have a project planned for more storage. I feel like I'm off to a good start. Of course, I'll be sharing all of these upcoming projects with you here so, thank you so very much for taking the time to drop by my little slice of the www. :)
What about you? Have you tackled any big organizing projects lately?
