Snowy Photographs

I am very jealous of all the bloggers I follow posting their pictures of the early spring flowers and buds on the trees.  Here in Michigan we still have weeks of winter before any flowers start popping up.   I snapped this picture while I was waiting for the bus this morning.  As I stand in the freezing cold waiting for the bus I have to remind myself that winter can be beautiful too. These absolutely gorgeous photos found on Etsy are evidence of that.

A Fishy Treasury

I just found my Koi iPhone case in this cute fishy treasury.  Click here to take a look! 

I think my favorite item might be the Wild Alaskan Salmon Vertabrae Earrings, mostly for the wierdness factor.  They're kind of cute and I can just imagine the conversation when someone asks where you got them and what they are...   (plus I study vertebral development so I have an excuse :P )

Time to Get Organized

This is what my desk at work looks like this morning.  As you can see it is a jumbled mess of notebooks, papers and sticky notes.  I probably couldn't survive without sticky notes :) 
My goal today is to get this whole mess cleaned up and organized and hopefully it wont get into such a mess again too soon.  Do you have any tips that help you to get organized and stay organized?

I also want to share one thing with you that has helped me to be more productive recently.  Free productivity planners.  I can't remember anything if it isn't written down (hence my love of sticky notes) and these planners have helped me not only remember all of the things that I need to get done but also plan out exactly when I need to do them and what is top priority.

Top Five Valentine's Picks

Valentine's Day is just around the corner and I admit that I am not at all ready for it.  I have been amazingly stressed because I am having my first ever thesis committee meeting today.  If you don't know what that means just think about giving a 1-2 hour presentation in front of four faculty members who are judging you and your work. 

Ok so little stressed rant aside, I thought I would share some cute Valentine's things today that really just cheer me up and hopefully they make your day a little brighter too :)

So tell me...

Do you love it?
Do you hate it?
Is the price right?
Would you like to see it in a different color or for a different gadget?

Be honest! Your feedback can only help!!

New and Beautiful Etsy Shop - T for Edgar

One of my favorite things to do at work in my free time is to click through Etsy's pounce tool and look at all of the new shops that haven't had any sales yet.  This is how I found T for Edgar.   T for Edgar is definitely not going to remain undiscovered for very long.  They have a gorgeous selection of jewelry made with gemstones and sterling silver.  I especially love these earrings.
