Laundry Room

 A couple of years ago I decided to paint the laundry room blue.  I have loved it so much.  It use to be green...not one of my favorite colors.  I'm not sure what I was thinking when we originally painted that color but I love the new fresh blue look.  I decided to use the windows from the Hatch house to decorate above the cabinets.  I love how they look.  I enjoy having things that have meaning in our home. 
 The $10 chair from DI that I painted and put new fabric on.

Calendar pictures I had D make frames for to put above the washer and dryer.

I can't believe how fast January has gone by.  It was a busy month and a good month.  I spent a lot of the month going through closets, drawers, rooms and getting rid of anything we really did not need.  Still have some areas to do like the garage and storage room but it feels good to have things in order.  I love to organize but I think the part I love the most is the end result.  It's almost like a high for me to go into a room I've organized and enjoy the peace and calm I feel in it.  For me it brings a sense of happiness.  I enjoy January for this very fact.  It's always the month I get things in order for the rest of the year.

I've also spent the first part of the month working on my planner and getting my goals set for the year.  It's been good.  I found some ideas online and then put together the things I wanted in mine.  Still have some tweaking to do but I feel like I'm more organized and have everything in one place. Here are a few pictures of my planner.

 This is something I have incorporated in my daily schedule and it's worked so good. I truly feel like I'm on top of the cleaning around the house by doing "my jobs" each day.  It's been great!
