Getting Organized in the New Year Workshop

Welcoming 2013: Making the Most of the New Year

Welcoming 2013: Making the Most of the New Year

Today is my first day in the office for 2013. I intentionally took time off over the Christmas and New Year’s holidays to step back from work, enjoy my family and clear my head. Now I’m back and ready to hit the ground running! How about you?

 

In the past I’ve never been much of a believer in writing down my goals or making them for that matter. It all seemed a little woo-woo and out there. However in 2012 I worked with a wonderful organizer and business coach Paris Love (www.parisloveinstitute.com) who convinced me of the importance of setting goals.

Meet Me at the Mistletoe Market

Meet Me at the Mistletoe Market

I feel a little bit like an elf this week as I am scurrying around finishing preparations for my booth at this weekend’s Mistletoe Market. To me it is the beginning of the holiday season here in Middle Georgia and I loved seeing all the great products everyone was selling, visiting with friends and making new ones!

For those of you who don’t live in Middle Georgia, Mistletoe Market is a Christmas marketplace sponsored by the Balvaunuca Club. The club donates their proceeds from the sale to worthy community organizations. In 2011 they gave away $40,000! This year it is being held in its new location in the Miller-Murphy-Howard building at the Georgia National Fairgrounds in Perry on November 16-18.

Getting Ready for the Holiday Season

Getting Ready for the Holiday Season

It always seems as if the holidays always sneak up on us. After all, Thanksgiving is just 2 weeks away! So whether you are getting ready to host 35 people for a Thanksgiving dinner or if you are preparing for the celebrations of Hanukkah or Christmas, you can get ready early and simplify your work and enjoy the holidays so much more.

Planning

As we get ready for the holidays, let’s take a minute to remember why we celebrate this time of the year. It’s not about gifts, parties and obligations. It’s a time to give thanks for our many blessings, to celebrate the wonderful miracles of Christmas, Hanukah; Kwanzaa; to celebrate the coming of a brand New Year full of possibilities. Try to keep this in your heart and mind this season to keep things in perspective.

These Boots Were Made For Walking

These Boots Were Made For Walking

OK, I know it’s not exactly boot weather right now (Hello, flip flops!!!), but it is the perfect time of year to make sure your boots will be ready for walking in the fall.

Tall boots have a habit of falling over and if you don’t wear them often you run the risk of getting creases.  You can buy specially made boot shapers that range in price from $5 to $15.  Yikes! If you are boot lover, that can get pricey!
