The Bug

teawithoney_illo Right when the temperature dropped letting us know summer was really gone, baby got a cold and then I caught it too.  This thing was/is nasty.  I'm still battling it but the upside is it gave me something to draw/paint.  It first hit me on Wednesday amd Saturday I was completely out.  I quarantined myself to our room so I could pass out and nap to recover. Just me, the humidifier, iPad + Netflix, some tea (that made my sore throat worse actually) and non-stop TP for my non-stop nose.  Glad to be on the other side of it even though I'm not 100%.

I need to stock up on more anti-bacterial from Bath and Body Works.

Happy Birthday Mama.

mombirthday_2013_small My mom's birthday is today.  We went out to dinner to celebrate on Monday.  Just her and I.  It was so nice and we need to make an effort to that more often.  Sometimes good conversation and just spending time are the best gifts.  I love you Mama.  Mwah.

IF - New

christmas bear Christmas is over? Bah humbug!  Can't be, I love it too much and it is flooding my sketches still.  ;)

This is my attempt for Illustration Friday's word, New.

I'm enjoying my vacation and all of the organization for months is paying off now.  All we have left is my side of the master closet (ahem), Raul's office/my sewing room and the pantry to go.  I love ABFOL and the biggest takeaway from her site was the mail system.  That is by far the best thing for us because we don't continually each have a pile of mail to go through for each of us.  We have a folder for each of us, a TO PAY folder, and a TO FILE folder.  That way we can go through our own folders when we want to and there is no paper trail or paper piles all over.  For coupons I got a little zip up pack from the Container Store and I keep that in the main car we drive.  That way the coupons are always with us on the go.  Plus I installed apps for Michaels and JoAnns so I can have their most up to date coupons as well.

Do you have any organization tips?  I am pretty much obsessed with it now.
