Tonight was an exciting evening at my house. Typically on Friday evenings, I come home from work and cook dinner for my two youngest children, my husband and I. We all sit at the big dining room table, enjoy the meal together, talk about our week then we clear the dishes and have our weekly family bible study. I Love Fridays when we get to be together like this and this week was no exception. My son was a little late (he works 3rd shift and overslept) but he still made it in time for soup and family study.
Just after dinner, my daughter brought me a copy of the most recent issue of our county magazine, Happenings Defiance County This was kinda a big deal because.... I WAS IN IT!!!! I was right there, the very fist article!!! Big Photo and all!!

Last month I was invited to a local library to talk about organizing paper. This is a topic that is near and dear to my heart.... I LOVE to organize paper. I know that may sound crazy to some of you but it's the truth. I honestly enjoy taking piles of paper, culling them down to four basic catagories and rapidly making sense of a mound of paper that seemed untamable. I find that many folks are intimadated with this task because they just don't know where to begin but once they learn there is a system, they too can begin to make quick progress.
.....see there, I got a little side tracked talking about organizing paper.... anyway, in the audience at the library, was the editor of the local magazine. Immediatley following my presentation she introduced herself and asked if I would be interested in appearing in the magazine on a semi regular basis.... It took no time at all for me to say yes!!! I KNOW there are many people who need help organizing paper! Their papers, their parent's papers, their kid's papers, medical papers, financial paper, insurance paper, you name it we all have it and it multiplies every day. Most people don't realize there are actually organizers who can help with paper!
.....sorta side tracked again.... I was so excited... I want to help people get their paper organized and Faith (the editor's name) was interested in publishing interesting and helpful articles for our community. This was a win for both of us. A follow up meeting was scheduled and the rest they say, is history.... or maybe its the present....
The magazine that my daughter brought home from town tonight, hot off the press, was the first issue to carry a Just Julie Organizing article. Of course the topic was organizing paper. It was the recap of the short version of a workshop I offer called "Conquering Your Paper Mountain". I hope many of you will pick up a copy when you are out and about in Defiance over the next two months.
