the big 3-0!

Today I turn 30! Ahhhh! I'm not sure exactly how I feel about entering the 4th decade of my life, especially since I'm doing it before my husband does and he never lets me forget it! But I thought I'd let you in on the celebration by offering 30% off in the shop today only! Just enter GOLDEN30 in the coupon slot at checkout. All ruler designs are back in stock now too. Happy shopping!

2013 calendars to help me be a little more organized in the new year.

One of my goals this coming new year is to be more organized. I always thought of myself as being organized but now that I have 2 in two different schools, I have realized I'm not as organized as I would like to be. One of the first, and easiest ways, I can think of on my journey to organization is to get a calendar. I kind of forgot to get one this year so I use my mental calendar and things keep getting jumbled up in there. I'm thinking a mental calendar is not the best way to go. In my search for the perfect calendar I thought I would share some of my favorites I have found.

Cavellini has a new vintage style out. It says you pull off the page at the end of the month. I don't think there are a bunch of different pictures like the original ones we all love so much but instead it's styled more like a day by day or desk calendar. I haven't seen one in person yet but I love the sweet treats one!
And of course my love of bird prints leads me to love this one, I can't help but picture each month framed after I'm done using it.
And the colors in the garden calendar are making this one a strong contender. {All of these Cavellini calendars and more can be found here}.
Etsy is also a great place to find one of a kind calendars. {Click on the images to go to the store where they are sold}.
While I would love one that hangs on the fridge or wall, I still can't help but love the design of this one...

I love the artistic look of this farmer's market calendar, I think I may have a thing for veggies this year.


As well as this herbal calendar.


And these cute little pups can't help but make me smile. Again this kind would be hard to write down everything that is happening on each day but it's cute to look at!



Have you bought a 2013 calendar yet? I can't believe it's less than 2 weeks away!!! As well as the big 3-0 for me! ahhhh!!! Where has the time gone!!!

If you have any other good calendar sources please let us know in the comments!!

Our entry, breakfast nook, and guest bathroom... decked for the holidays.

When you first walk in our home you are greeted with this... a little glimpse of our Christmas tree.


That radio active looking block on the table is a "present" made from a glass block. My mom made one for me before there were kits to make them the easy way.


The little wreath is from JoAnn's. I've been wanting to hang a wreath on this mirror for a long time!


This is a little awkward niche across from the console table. Some of the boy's home made creations are here.


A little seating area in what's supposed to be the breakfast nook.




And some little cheerful touches in the boys/guest bathroom.




I think that finally concludes all of the Christmas decorating that has been accomplished by this point.

This weekend I did a fun craft with the kids that I will share later this week, I have to photograph it still. They loved it, especially the little one!
