Organizing your work space can make a word of difference in how you feel. If you walk into a room and see a desk that have no surface because it is cluttered with piles of unopened mail, paperwork you need to get to, and pens and pencils strewn about, you are more than likely not going to get anywhere very fast because you will feel overwhelmed and not know where anything and/or everything is at.
However, if you walk into an office that has a desk that is completely cleared off and everything has been filed away in to it’s own space you will probably feel like you can get started and do anything you’d like. I know if my desk is a mess it makes me feel yucky and when I’m trying to do work on it most of the time it just drives me crazy because I can’t even find a surface to write on.
Take the time to clear off your desk and file everything away. I’m sure you’ll feel much better. Start by throwing away all of the paper that you don’t need. You don’t need all of the envelopes that your bills come in, they just take up space. Open them all up and file them away. I suggest going paperless with all of your bills. That’s one way to eliminate extra clutter in your life. I know I’ve really enjoyed not having a stack of bills that I need to file away each month ever since I switched to paperless. Give it a try and see what you think.
You are sure to busy and caught up with many things on your special day. We’ve all heard there are three sides to every story. How about having a chance to see your whole event from someone else’s perspective? A great way not to miss out on all of the exciting moments of your big day is to pass out disposable wedding cameras at your wedding or reception.
You could give a camera to each guest or maybe set a few out at each table at the wedding reception. Your friend and family are sure to capture moments that you might have never had a chance to see had you not given them all camera to use. It could even be fun to give some camera to the children in attendance. They always seem to find things that adults miss.
Disposable wedding cameras come in a variety of styles from your standard plain to others than can compliment the decor of your wedding reception. You don’t have to limit them to use solely at your reception either. How about sharing them at other important events along the way, like the bachelor or bachelorette party, the rehearsal dinner, or even the bridal shower.
At the end of the events leave a collection basket to collect all of the cameras. Then, drop them off at your local developers and wait to see all of the exciting images your friends and family caught on film.
Do you let your children play with electronic devices? Does your child have his or her own personal IPad , IPhone, IPod, Kindle Fire, Nook, or similar device that can connect to the internet? If so, I’m curious to know about the boundaries and rules you have put in to place regarding it’s use.
How closely do you monitor what your children are doing on these electronic devices? Do you sit with them and participate in the activity or do they get to have free time alone to use it all by themselves? Have you placed time restrictions on when the devices can and can not be used? Is there a time limit when the kids do get to use it? Do you use it as a reward or privilege or just something they can use whenever?
My daughter can use my IPad to play on the applications I have downloaded for her as long as her chores are done and she has made good choices during the day. I do limit the amount of time she is on the IPad but it depends on what she is doing. I let her play on the learning apps for almost as long as she wants as long as they are the educational apps and not something like baking cupcakes or dressing up a doll. I want her to view learning as fun and there are many applications that help me accomplish just that.
Imagine it’s your big day and you are sitting at your reception with your new husband or wife and are simply glowing with happiness. Your best man or maid of honor gets up to give his or her toast to you. Now, picture in your and your significant other’s hands the most beautiful wedding flutes.
On these wedding flutes are the initials of the bride and groom etched carefully into the glass or crystal. The stems are made of elegant silver or gold depending on your colors and taste. At the bottom of the wedding flutes beautiful scroll work has been engraved to match all of your decor. These aren’t just glasses that everyone will use but something special and worthy of display. Don’t these wedding flutes sound much more appealing than your average plain champagne flute?
You can have personalized wedding flutes like this at your wedding too. Maybe you’d like a flute design in which both glasses interlock. Perhaps flutes that contain only a single base for both glasses to sit or rest into is more your style. There are special commemorative wedding flutes to fit every wedding theme from simple and elegant to modern and extreme. There is something for everyone.
One of Ladybug’s friends wore the cutest little dress to school today. Her mom made it all by hand. She said that she just looked at a picture and tried to match it the best she could. My favorite part about the dress are the straps. They are not your ordinary straps.
Instead of connecting in the front and back they are only attached int he front. I guess they are somewhat like a halter dress straps. Anyway, you don’t tie them like a halter dress but I suppose you could. There is a whole in the back to feed them through. Then once through the whole you tie the straps into a big bow. I thought it was absolutely adorable!
Sometimes when I see creative things like that I wonder why I never thought of doing something like that. It kind of makes me want to get a sewing machine and learn how to sew. I would love to be able to make new outfits for Ladybug all of time. I know she would love having something new and especially if she helped me pick out the patterns and materials. I bet I could find a decently priced sewing machine on Craigslist instead of investing a bunch of money into something I’m not sure I will really stick with.
