Getting Organized

This is where you will find tips, tricks, articles, and information on anything that I find O-C-D-Licious. I like my house to be functional, but also have style. You CAN do both.

All Used Up

Maybe I am the only one. Maybe I am getting old and cheap. I don't know. But I will tell you right now, I derive an inappropriate amount of glee from using things up. When I use up ALL of the face wash in my bottle (seen here), ALL [...]

I had my OWN back!

I know I've been talking about this tons and tons, but PLEASE back up all of your files! PLEASE! I was very lucky this time around. Though I was not as stringent on backing up my files in general, I did stick to my process for photography. I take [...]

My Resolutions

Last year when I wrote my resolutions for the year 2010, I had no idea what was going to come my way. I just had arrived in Washington the month before, and had gone through a miscarriage beginning on December 26th. I had no idea what was coming my [...]
