A New Quarter

Today starts a new quarter at school and is the last week of football for Ryan and Jonathon.  I have to say, Pat and I are both feeling a little bit run down with all of the shuffling to and from activities.  We're looking forward to a fresh start and a few weeks before the next season of sports starts!  I found this interesting article on "White Space" on Susan's blog.  I thought it was a great perspective about creating white space in your life.   Felt like I created some this morning when I organized all of our bills and statements that we receive.  Spent a couple hours setting us up for more electronic copies. I hate filing everything so I felt pretty good about it when I was done.  Certainly had to be patient as I was on the phone getting logins set up that I couldn't get automatically on-line.  But, it created some white space for me and that definitely played to my Type A personality!!
Now onto a completely unrelated note...here is my card today is for this week's Play Date Cafe Challenge. I got to play with my new PTI stamps and lots and lots of pink bling.  I liked using very non-traditional Christmas colors for this card and inking the edges of the ornaments up just a bit. 

Here's to a great week for everyone!

PS  I have a giveaway going on here if you're interested!

    Glad you liked the article and found it useful. It's an ongoing struggle to have white space in this era of busyness.
