As I started making my list of new years resolutions (I don't typically do this by that way), there was a reoccurring theme - BALANCE! The big picture is that I need to balance my business life and my personal one. Now, I love to work! I go a little crazy when I know I can be doing something and am not. But I've realized that this isn't healthy. For instance, if Adam and I have weddings on the weekend, I should probably take a day off during the week. This past year I did no such thing. So I've spent the past few weeks organizing my life so I can work smarter - not harder.

First thing I tackled was getting all the random things off of our kitchen counter top.  It's amazing how sunglasses, keys and random mail seems to take over our kitchen leaving a feeling of disarray! So it started with a group of frames that we'd used to decorate with in our last home. They've been lying around for awhile now and I got to wondering how I could use them. I came up with some simple solutions for our clutter.

Here are a majority of the supplies we used. Magnetic paint, chalkboard paint, hemp, wine corks and the trusty glue gun. All of these supplies (sans wine corks) can be found at just about any craft store.

And here you have it! Some simple frames, a little elbow grease, and our counters are clutter free! Now the next area to tackle was my desk. Soon I'll show you how I made a place for everything while adding some pops of color. I mean, I sit here all day - might as well enjoy the view! Happy Friday!
