Suzigoombs found this great office in our last Color Contest, and it made it into her style tray. When we have our personal pages working, you'll be able to easily see where she got it. Does anyone know?
Thank you for all the Happy Birthdays. Here she is at one year, yesterday morning. Now, back to work!
Top Tips for week 4: 1. Be practical. Have you bitten off too much? Then scale back and move on. 2. Get brutal. Are you being too careful when you should be getting mean with your stuff? This is your chance to make a difference. Don't lollygag and perseverate over cleaning and editing. As Nike says, Just do it. 3. Get inspired. Everyone else is working hard and having struggles as well. Share yours and see what others are doing to make their change. Also, if you'd like an inspirational story, check out this one about the founding of Patagonia. Rock climbing is a good metaphor for what we are all doing.
This Week's Assignment: In the Deep Treatment we tackle the Living Room. For some of you this may be a big deal, for others it may not be as much trouble. Either way, this is probably the time to tackle your BOOKS. These are a very pesky element that can be very hard to edit. Your are also cooking at home 3x this week. If you would like encouragement or recipes, head over to The Kitchen, where daily support and inspiration is provided.
The One Room Workout gets to tackling shopping and considering Carb and Protein furniture if you haven't already. I urge you to buy quality when you shop. In addition, if you are entering prices into a shopping list/spreadsheet, don't forget that we have these available here for you to use.
