Making your office space work for you

Making your office space work for you

I spent a good portion of the weekend cleaning my office. I didn’t plan on cleaning my office, but as you may remember from my earlier post about how one project leads to another, you can understand how it might happen. It started last week, when I had a really great writing breakthrough. I decided I needed my desk to have some clear space to work. The only problem was, I had tax stuff all...

I am terrible at weaving in ends and piecing things together, and so I usually don’t fully finish my projects. But tomorrow I am going out to lunch with my BFF for her birthday. Last year, I planned on making her a really cute tea cozy, which I almost finished, except...
