As a reward to myself for getting up and completing my good habit so far, I finished up the last bit of my project. I thought I would share. It turned out just the perfect size. It fits the circumference of my hand spread out. Just right for washing dishes. Although this would make a pretty face cleansing cloth. Hmmm....guess I'll have to make more of these. :) You can see the post I found this pattern from here.
Anyone else working on some fun things during your down time as a reward for a job well done? Would love to see it!
Today is all about inspiring myself by jotting done some inspirational quotes. You can read all about it in my original post here. In response, I have updated the quote in my sidebar to the right.
I will just be glad in today! Celebrating the fact that I have followed through with my habits I've established so far. I even had some time to do one of my favorite things yesterday.....crochet....I'll share that with you shortly. I still have just a little bit left to do on that project before I can take a picture. :)

Today I will be turning on my timer for 15 minutes to declutter. You can read my original post on this here. It is truly amazing to see how much can be accomplished in such a short period of time! A huge task can see less daunting by doing bits at a time. This also helps me from getting burned out and leaving a task undone to never be worked on again.
So, what did you get done in 15 minutes?

Sorry I was unable to write a post yesterday. It was day nine of thirty one, which means I added on a five minute room rescue to my routine. You can read my original post about this day here.
I have a dirty little secret.....closets and armoires are my stash it and forget it spots. My house may look all company ready, but don't go near a closet! Seriously, you open that door and you might have an avalanche come down over you. This can be so overwhelming for me to tackle because I just let these spaces get so out of hand. I five minute room rescue (or 15 minutes,as you will read tomorrow) is the perfect solution for me to do a little at a time without getting so frustrated that I give up.
As I said previously, I love before and after pictures. So I'm pulling a picture of one of my previous five minute rescues. The armoire above is not one of my worst hidden spaces, but it had so much stuff in it that I just didn't need or want anymore. I decided this would make a great place for mine and my daughters craft supplies.
It doesn't look so bad, but it was just stuff taking up space (drawers were crammed full of crap too). Little by little I found a place for the few things I wanted to keep and proudly displayed it. The other things were put into a box and taken to an auction for sale. (I'll write a post about that in the future as well ;) )
Now it has my crafting supplies nicely organized for easy access. I have a lot more in there now, like my sewing machine, markers, material, knick knacks for future repurposing crafts. Actually, it could use another good straightening up. Will have to maybe make that my first rescue so that it can once again go back to it's beautiful crafting glory.
What space would you like to begin rescuing? (If you have tried to comment and have been unable to....try again....I think I had my settings incorrect)

Today it's all about making a more detailed plan with the new established habits. You can read all about it on my original post here. This is my Morning Routine to the left.
Princeton is our sweet little dog. Sometimes he is first on the list....just depends on if he is still dreaming of running through a field chasing after a ball or if he's up raring to go. :)
This is my Afternoon/Daily Routine so far with the baby steps. I'll show you my more established list as I keep adding on later down the road.
Happy List Making!
