A lovely weekend

January 2011 OLW Class
January 2011 One Little Word Class Assignment
Where to begin....I had a lovely weekend. I never used to be one to use the word lovely, but 1. My weekend was lovely, and 2. I just love how fellow Kelly Rae Flyer Jacqueline uses it--its so happy. It gives me warm fuzzies. I had tons of fun while getting tons of things accomplished!

We had a movie night with popcorn, Despicable Me (cute movie), and good friends. I continued my quest for a clutter-free home and am enjoying the results (it's so much easier to keep things clean when there's a place for everything).

I finished reading The Procrastinator's Handbook: Mastering the Art of Doing It Now and I am so proud of myself. I'm notorious for starting books but not finishing them, but I felt that this one needed to be finished--it's just wrong to put a procrastinator's book off until later (Can you say "missing the point"?). It was a great book for me to read. It offered lots of suggestions for getting life organized.

I also enjoyed some time in my craft room finishing January's assignment for Ali Edward's One Little Word Class. I loved doing it, and I love how it turned out. In the spirit of clearing clutter, I've been trying to use items I already have rather than buying more stuff. So rather than buy the adorable divided page protector, I sewed one myself (I actually have a box of old sheet protectors). It took some trial and error, but I am thrilled with the results. And I am LOVING my one little word--Clear. I know it's still the beginning of the year, but I feel really connected to it. I am really looking forward to seeing all it will bring. So far it has brought loveliness ♥ ♥ ♥

Jen, your post made me smile this morning {it's just 6am}. LOVE that layout! Those colors are my favorite. I would love to hear about Ali's class. Such a great idea.

I am doing well with my Word this year, too. Really feeling connected to REINVENT.

And like you, I am trying to find a home for all our stuff. Looking around my office I think that should be next-LOL!
