inspired 2011

Oh how I love a new year, a fresh start, a clean slate! I have a million ideas swirling around in this head of mind: closets to organize, schedules to update, calendars to fill, goals to achieve, memories to make....endless possibilities!

A few things inspiring me lately:

1. I signed up for Ali's One Little Word class, and I am looking forward to finding new ways of keeping my word relevant throughout the year. This year, I chose the word "ENJOY" I really struggled with choosing the "right" word, but after a conversation with my hubby on the way to the airport, he convinced me that this should be the year we focus on enjoyment (and how could I argue with that?).

2. I am completely and totally inspired by these books. Love, Love, Love....can't wait to make them for the 3 loves of my life. I plan on making quite a few Shutterfly books this year (tops on my To-DO in 2011 list).

3. I came home from Florida on Sunday to find the Project Life box on my front exicted to get started on this project again!! In 2009, I took a photo (almost) every single day. It was tough at times, but I will be forever grateful that I made the effort, and I love looking back at all the memories we created. Last year, I decided to take the year off, and used my Project Life album more as a way to capture bits and pieces of our everyday life with photos thrown in here and there. For 2011, I am back on the picture-a-day bandwagon, and I am really looking forward to it!

i got the Amber edition...can't wait to get it all set-up

4. Have you read this mama's blog yet? I have read and loved Jade's blog for a long time now, and if she is not already on your must-read blog list, she should be!! I am continually inspired by her...she is just like the mama I want to be: simple, fun, sincere, organized, efficient, creative, playful, honest and kind. Check out her living room post-Christmas:

5. If you love organizing as much as I do, you are gonna want to check out this post over at I Heart's a recap of all the organizational projects she tackled in 2010, and it's full of great ideas.

Hope you are as inspired by these women as I am. Here's to ENJOYMENT in adventure, excitement, creativity, vitality, connection, faith, friendship, and love.

Ooh, have fun with the Project Life. I want to take more pictures this year too. I can go a week without taking one picture and that should change. Those books are adorable...thanks for sharing. I already love IHeart Organizing but I'll have to check out that other blog.
