Happy New Year

I am working on getting my Christmas cards out today. Finally.

I love the New Year. It's a clean slate. I love blank slates. I'm not making resolutions this year, just goals. One of my crafting goals for this year is to finish
my mom's quilt, or my dad's. Both would be great.

After all the busy-ness of the holiday season, I am reminded that I need to get things better organized. One of my favorite cleaning/organizing books is
Confessions of an Organized Homemaker by Deniece Schofield. Also, somewhere along the way, I was pointed to the FLY Lady. Her number one tip: clean with your shoes on!

Well, I'm off to get those cards out, before the holiday season is long gone. Happy New Year!

Christmas Cards now?? Well, better late than never! I too need to get more organized, but maybe tomorrow!

Way to go, Karen - for me resolutions never worked, so I finally gave up making them and found goals and aspirations were much easier to reach!
I'd love to know how your links pop up without leaving your current blog...you are so clever!
Cheers!

Beautiful quilts - and as a recipient, I am very excited! I didn't understand the cleaning with your shoes on.... what am I missing? I might have to try that!
Wishing you a Happy New Year, too!

I need to organize things around the house, too. It seems as if it all exploded before the holidays. Why should you clean with your shoes on? It seems as if you would make the clean floor dirty...
