Small Success Thursday, No. 15

Okay, so this wasn't this week, but it was just last week. And since I didn't do a small success post last week I'm taking the liberty to share more than two weeks worth of success. Since moving into our house a year and a half ago our front hall closet has been a mishmash of stuff. The coats are hung nicely, but everything else was thrown onto the shelf above: summer hats, winter hats, ball caps, scarfs, gloves, and even baby carriers. So I finally organized it all in neat baskets so that we can keep them organized. There are even names on each basket!
So clean looking!
Speaking of organizing, I organized my desk at work. AND cleaned it, too! I wish I had a picture of the clean space. Actually a before and after picture would have been nice, but I didn't think of it at the time. Oh my goodness, the stuff I threw away!! Tons of old papers that had no meaning any longer. Lots and lots and lots of old meeting notes, conference notes, hand outs for programs, workshops, software we no longer use. My desk was so bad that I had asked for an additional new desk organizer a couple months ago and it had arrived and then sat on my desk, on top of stacks of stuff, still in the box, for about two months. Ah, the irony! I've cleaned my desk here and there over the years, but not to this extent. It looks amazing, and yet I don't feel done yet. As we approach Christmas and we get less productive in the office, I want to tackle more of my filing cabinets and the carts sitting around my desk. I'm so motivated now!!

Invitations to our almost one year old's first birthday went out Wednesday. I'm so on top of things! And they are the cutest invitations too. I love them and can't wait for our family members to see them.

What are your small successes this week? Come on over to to share in the small success fun!

So Many Giveaways!

I don't often enter giveaways, bu every now and then there are some really interesting ones and i figure, why not! If you are a follower of at all you may be aware they there are weekly giveaways there. Most I pass up, but every now and then I'll enter just for the heck of it. Which brings me to this week ...

There is a great one there this week! I've made several entries now and figured I'd share. Go check it out HERE and enter yourself.

And speaking of giveaways, there is one happening on Catholic Sistas today and through the rest of the week as well. I'd totally enter this one too if I could. But since I can't you should go enter! Check it out HERE.

And speaking of Catholic Sistas., not a giveaway, but I have a book review over there today. I reviewed Embracing Edith Stein: Wisdom for Women from St. Teresa Benedicta of the Cross by Anne Costa. Go check it out when you get a chance. Could be a good Christmas gift for someone you know.
