Last year I created a One Little Word goal matrix with a space for your OLW, and then 6 accompanying areas of your life that you want to change. It’s an awesome worksheet! I created a different version this year, that has more to do with specific behaviors and activities. You could definitely use both, or just try one and see how you respond to it. If you haven’t heard of OLW, it’s an awesome way to set goals for the year focusing on one word that will help determine what area of growth you are looking for in your life. Examples might be: Simplify, growth, learning, peace, etc.

This year’s One Little Word Goal Worksheet includes a goal statement. I think having a goal statement is an awesome way to bring about change. Look at what you want to accomplish, and create a statement that will help you remember the hows and whys of your one little word.

Spring Cleaning by room – free organizational download

December 30th, 2014

I asked people on my Facebook page what types of organizational downloads they were interested in. I got a lot of great feedback, so I’m going to be doing a week of organization now through next tuesday with a free download each day. If you have a great idea for an organizational/planner form that you have been wanting, please leave a comment below, or visit my Facebook page and leave a comment there. Also I am now sending out a monthly+ newsletter that will keep you apprised of my goings on and free downloads, it only takes a second to sign up (there is a verification email sent to you right away), and it will make coming back to my site super easy especially when there is good stuff happening here like this week of organization.

I had a request for a Spring Cleaning form. It’s definitely winter here, but I LOVE spring cleaning, especially right after Christmas when you’re just kind of ready to de-clutter. In with the new… out with the old, right? Spring cleaning can be a bit overwhelming, so I created this list to tackle it by room.  Basically the idea is you pick a room that needs organizing/cleaning/purging, and you set a specific date that you are going to be working on that room. Then, the most important part, you set a GOAL for that room. This will help focus your efforts on what needs to be done. For a kids room, that goal might be rearranging for a sibling to move in, or organizing all the old baby clothes etc. If you pick a specific goal for that room, you’ll be less likely to get overwhelmed. There is also room for 8 specific tasks. I find that 8 is a great number. Enough to get stuff done, not so much that you feel like you’ll never finish.

Red traditional Mantel with Noel banner and scallop glitter banner

December 29th, 2014

Glittered NOEL banner on book pages - theprojectgirl.com

I decorated my basement mantel with decorations I had lying around from years past. I love bright red for Christmas and definitely feel like it fits in better with the decor downstairs. I did want to freshen it up with a banner, and I had these gorgeous glitter letters from My Mind’s Eye.

I created this banner with the same process I used for my star banner a few weeks ago. This time I used these gorgeous book pages from an old copy of Heidi that my kids had already torn a few pages from.

I especially loved this chapter heading for a christmas banner.  I hand-cut the papers into this pocket shape and then hot-glued on the rosettes and glitter letters. theprojectgirl-noel-mantel-glitter

I wanted to sew this banner instead of string it through holes. I have this gorgeous chartreuse ribbon, and I didn’t want it to cover the book pages, so I placed it under instead. theprojectgirl-noel-banner-ribbon

To keep everything in place for sewing, I used just a few little dabs of glue from my glue runner.

On each end, I folded the ribbon over, and tacked it down with more glue.

Once I had all the flags tacked with glue, I ran the whole thing slowly through the sewing machine.

And then placed it on my mantel.

I wanted to finish off the mantel with one more small banner. I grabbed these glittered confetti circles from My Minds Eye, and sewed them down the middle.

Then I folded and glued them with my Ad tech permanent glue runner to create a scallop banner.

I placed that across the whole mantel to finish off the look. The stockings are from Pottery barn, and the garland is one that I have used before from Joanne Fabric & Craft. I wrapped it in some gorgeous burlap ribbon that I bought on clearance after Christmas last year, also from Pottery Barn.
