95-percent tidier

Today’s big job was cleaning out the bathroom and organizing what I use. It was an endless, but satisfying task. It’s still not entirely finished, but it sure is nice to see so much countertop again! Today’s #OneGoodThing with Mama was a 95-percent tidier bathroom! What was your #OneGoodThing today? Please share in the comments! Day 142…

Personalizing my daily organizer

My new organizer began this month, and today I finished the digital collage that adorns the first page. Mama and I used to create these fun pages together with stamps, stickers, ticket stubs, and other mementos. I created a digital version a couple of years ago, which I now update for a fresh look each…

I recently found a fantastic new pill organizer, which separates Mama’s morning and bedtime meds and is extremely easy to open/close with a push button that gives a satisfying click when it shuts.

Taking my collage digital

One of my favorite annual art projects is decorating the inside of my Planner Pad organizer. It’s a tradition I’ve shared with Mama for the last five years or so, but we got a bit delayed on the decorating this year. Normally I assemble my awesome rubber stamp collection (favorites being from Venice and homemade)…

A clean desk at last!

Today I finally finished sorting through stacks of papers and cleaned off my desk! I’ve still got some organizing to do to complete my home office space, but it is so great to see the desk surface again. I’m not ready to share a photo of said desk since it isn’t done, but it feels…
