Alison hosts Favorites on the First @ The Polohouse, and it's one of my favorite link parties. This month is all about resolutions and organizing, but I really don't call them resolutions because it's bad juju: Instead I call them goals! You can read my January goals here. Most goals this year will focus on purging and organizing, so this month's Favorites on the First is *perfect* for me!
I'm already purging, and I started with old and new Christmas magazines (okay…so I admit that I'm starting small). I decided to start organizing for Christmas 2014 by making plans in a SMASH Journal. I use SMASH Journals all the time for organizing art projects, our home DIY projects, recipes, etc. I truly do love them! I love Pinterest, too, but sometimes you want to keep hard copies of things.
