Kiss for Rabbit?

rabbit kiss? This rabbit found some mistletoe and isn't sure if he's going to get a smooch or not.  Told ya I still have Christmas on the brain.

Happy New Year!  I surprised myself by not only staying up til midnight (and going to bed right at 12:15 a.m.), but we organized the pantry.  What a party animal right?  Just glad we squeezed that in before 2013.  We spent the whole day wrapping up the office, closets and then the pantry.  Today was just a low-key start to the year.  We stayed in. We stayed in pjs all day.  I finished up this watercolor painting. Cleaned the bathrooms and did my hair.

For this year I plan on watching less TV, reading more, painting more, having an even better year for my shop than last year.  Oh and I will post more, I think that needs to improve, don't you?


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.
