Another week has passed and I a week at a glance. This has been a productive week. Some behind the scenes and also on my blog.
Thank you all for showing up every week and for following my projects. I wish I could explain to you how appreciated you are. In the meantime, please enjoy my posts for the week. So let’s get started for this past week, August 24 – August 28.

This past weekend I did something I had not done in quite some time. Hubs and I took a day and spent it together thrifting. We had a ball. We got up and out around 10:00 and it was an all-day adventure of finding treasures.
We began our adventure at our local flea market. We purchased our produce from local farmers for the week and while there we lucked up on two awesome iron based bar stools with backs no less for $40.00. I do not have a bar, but I thought these would be perfect on our deck for extra seating. They are sleek, can be easily painted any color we like, the seat covers are easily changed and the price was right…or so I thought until I traveled further. Stay tuned. At any rate, we purchased the bar stools and even though we’ve had a few days to reflect, there is no buyer’s remorse. These will look different when you see them next.

Not sure if you need or how to use the services of a Virtual Assistant (VA)? Hopefully, my weekly tips will help you or give you new ideas on how to use the services of a professional VA.
This week’s tip – Week 12:
Are you feeling scattered? Are you working on a large project and sometimes get lost in the details? For example, do you host a podcast, webinar or have a Youtube page? If so, I am certain you spend lots of time editing your video before the broadcast. As suggested in an article by Chris Ducker, Why not teach your VA/Video Editor how to edit your videos and remove that task from your to-do list? All that is required is to teach your VA how to use the editing software and you will never need to spend time editing again. And an added bonus, commission your VA to write an SOP (standard operating procedure) for this project and you will not need to retrain a new assistant if there is ever a change.

How to Organize a Project/She Shed
How This Project Began:
For over a year now I have salivated over the beautiful and organized She-Sheds. I have had a picture hanging in my office for over a year and a half wishing for the pretty and organized space. My shed is very small (quite a dilemma since I cannot enlarge it because I live in a townhouse), but I thought it could still be organized. It is still not a space where I can store large DIY and paint projects or even work on large projects, but I have turned it into an organized space. Do know it is still a work in progress but isn’t everything always a work in progress with me? That is the fate of a DIYer/Organizer. J
Before you begin this journey with me, you must imagine what the space looked like before the project. The space was full of stuff piled up everywhere. There were no storage shelves, the walls were bare with the studs showing and the rafters were exposed in the ceiling. Oh yeah…and a bare lightbulb was the only light fixture and the floor was a dull concrete slab. It was just a mess. Read the entire article and see all of the pictures here.
I hope you are enjoying the weekly posts and will come back next week for more Lifestyle articles including Organizing on a Budget, home refreshes, soulful life experiences, virtual assistant tips, Health & Beauty tidbits, and even Avon product updates.
