I’m happy to report that I rung in the new year…ASLEEP! I ended up catching a cold that the men in my life had been fighting and by 11pm last night I just couldn’t do it anymore. I curled up in bed and fell fast asleep. The beginning of a new year brings out a nesting vibe in me. I’m all about clearing out the junk, putting away all of the holiday decorations and getting myself organized for a new work year.
This past month I took on some additional work so now along with interior design clients, blogging, freelance writing & producing projects and consulting I’m also working with an ad agency as their social media director. Whew! It all goes hand in hand so I’m happy to spread my wings and do a little bit of everything, but with two little guys and working mainly from home I need to get myself organized in order to make deadlines and not get projects confused. Here is a round up of some essentials that I will be picking up to get myself organized and ready to tackle 2015.
No.1: I’m a big note writer. From shopping lists for my Target run or measurements for a clients room that needs a rug I’m always writing something down. I like being able to grab them and go and getting to slash a big line through something when it’s done is wonderful.
No.2: Love the idea of these GSD Master Lists. I like seeing everything I have going on all on one page. So, it would be great to utilize all six boxes and see deadlines for the day or week on one page.
Let’s face it they are elephant shaped paperclips.I would find something to do with them even it means rocking them as earrings. Just kidding…maybe. 😉
No.3: With so much going on it’s hard to feel like you are rocking it all of the time. As women I feel like we always feel bad that we aren’t doing more even though we are always going above and beyond what is expected. Love this cell phone case that will give me a little pep talk everytime I answer a call.
No.4: Obsessed with the pattern on this planner. While I use my cellphone a lot to keep me on track I still really enjoy putting pen to paper. So, every year I pick up a planner. I’m not saying it gets used every year, but regardless how pretty will this look on my desk?!
No.5: Le Pens are the chicest pens out there and I personally use the orange and lilacs ones in my office. Love this colorful mix!
I think I’m track for a great 2015!
