1. Let’s get clicky with my Moments that Matter Photo Challenge. Capture moments that matter from your camera phone. Since winter is a time to embrace the holidays, I have picked a word each day that we can all capture with our camera phones to help us photo journal these joyous moments. Share them or keep them for yourself, but enjoy the moment!

For more details, click here! Pick either one of the photo journal prompts and click away!

Your Personal Assistant

Tip Junkie is coming full circle to make ‘Your Personal Assistant‘ reminders more interactive.  This has been a goal of mine for a few years and with technology I can now make it happen for you. {nerdy giggle}

This list has a task to do each day to help you organize your life while also creating those important bonding moments.  To motivate yourself to be your best ‘personal assistant’  capture with your camera phone these homemaking and productive moments.   {see above photo for task list}

My hope is that it helps balance all the demands of being a woman, wife, mother, sister, and friend.  {to name a few}

You shouldn’’t have any problem finding inspiration for the holiday!  {wink} Which reminds me,  it’s time to get Easter outfits for the family and schedule family pictures (if you haven’t already done so).  If you are on a tight budget or it’s too late to book your favorite photographer, why not trade photography sessions with a friend?  Arrange a time when you can take pictures of her family at a local park and vice versa.  Problem solved!  {{I’m all about problem solving, ladies!}} If you’’re already in the Easter crafting mood, here are some ideas to get your creativity flowing:
