So happy to see you here for our first official blog post of 2015! We trust that you had a wonderful holiday season and are ready for a fresh start into the New Year.
All of our pretty Christmas decor has been put away, there’s definitely a little more thunder in my thighs thanks to sweet treats and my boyfriends Mr. UPS and Mr. FedEx haven’t made an appearance at my front door in over a week now.
Typically after Christmas I have a tinge of melancholy, but this year it is different. I have a renewed vigor and excitement for the year ahead. Maybe it’s because my health is improving and I’m feeling energized for the first time in a long time. The New Year gives me an opportunity to reflect on changes I want to make in my life and to create clear and concrete goals of what I want to accomplish.
Jennifer and I were able to spend a lot of time together and map out a plan for the New Year. It was funny when we compared our personal lists with each other because they were very similar. Here’s a list of what each of us wants to accomplish in our homes this year and share with you on the blog:
- Clean, Organize and Purge – just about every room in my house needs this 🙂
- Laundry Room Makeover
- Upstairs Landing Makeover
- Master Bedroom Makeover
- Sitting Room Makeover
- Organizing Closets
- Organize Pantry
- Master Bedroom Makeover
- Living Room Makeover
We will both be restoring and painting more furniture for our homes and our booth at The Treasure Hunt. We each have a lot of decorating ideas and inspiration boards created for the rooms we want to makeover. Stay tuned!

Now, on to our fun and easy project!
I became excited about this project…a Rememberlutions Jar. The concept is, instead of making resolutions you add special accomplishments or memories to your jar. At the end of 2015 it will be a fun look back to see all of the fun and wonderful things that you did. I plan to add movie ticket stubs, concert tickets, special date nights, birthdays, vacations and time spent with family and friends. And I plan to pack my jar to the brim!
I already had plenty of jars and materials on hand and I gathered them all on my kitchen table.
The alphabet vinyl stickers were an easy way to add a Word of the Year…
