Business Stuff

In between swim lessons, little league, Vacation Bible School, and all my other summer activities with the boys, I’m dedicating the summer to catching up on my reading, brainstorming the next Great American Novel (complete, with romance), and getting organized (and updated).

Luckily, I’ve found these perfect file folders to help me with that last task (you can click on the photo to see the snarky little captions). I still haven’t decided what should go in them…but I’m hoping it occurs to me soon. I also have a variety of blank journals I need to find uses for. I love journals, but I can never decide what to use them for. It’s like I’m saving them up for something, but I don’t know what it is. Maybe I’ll dedicate one to brainstorming. Trouble is, I’m better at getting things down via keyboard. When I try to do it with a pen and paper and my head is swirling with ideas, my writing slowly deteriorates into a scribbled mess, which of course, I don’t want marring my lovely little journals. It’s a problem, I know.

I’m also trying to decide on color combinations for my redesigned website/blog. I’ve read that green is the easiest color on the eyes, but somehow I’d like to work some red in as well (even just a little would be good), and generally speaking, I don’t think red and green really go together. If I can figure out a good way to do it, I’ll post some combinations and ask for your opinions on the aesthetic.

Now, off to call the rain-out number to see if the boys’ came is cancelled tonight…

  1. Ohmigosh I LOVE those comments. Good luck with all your tasks. :)

  2. I’m thinking of buying a Dana.

    Hey, are you interested in posting a side dish or salad or desert recipe next Wed. (July 2). To get ready for July 4 picnics. Let me know. I’ll link to you.

  3. I don’t have any need for file folders but I need THOSE file folders because they are awesome.

    I’ve heard that lavender is easiest on the eyes & several people have tried to convince me that red & green go together because they are across from each other on the color wheel. Just go with what you like & the redesign will be fantastic.

  4. I am taking next week off and on my list of things to do during my at home vacation is to organize my office.

    Now I just need to find those folders!

    The folders are fabulous! I love that sort of thing. And of course they need to have the right thing in them. :)

    Green is my favorite color so I’m all for you doing green! And I think green and red can go together if you do it in the right way. Or if you have more than just green and red…like green/red/black/white or something. Or, since they’re opposite on the color wheel (apparently) one can technically be the accent of the other so you could have a website that’s predominantly red with green accents or vice versa.

  6. I’ve heard really good things about the Dana. I’m a perpetual editor so not so good for me.
