First, I really like this blog. It is written by a librarian and is interesting and intelligent. Second, I love the library themed wedding invitations. Different and very clever.

Library-Themed Wedding

Diana & I have finished putting together our handmade (yes we did it ourselves (although huge thanks must also go out to Joyce and Amy (http://www.amybach.org/) who helped cut hundreds of these invites) and have the blisters to prove it) wedding invitations; most of you probably won’t get an invite (sorry about that), but I still wanted to share with you what they look like. It’s a library theme (it sounds geeky, but it fits us because we both work in libraries…she’s a library assistant @ a college and is pursuing a library degree, and I am a librarian).

Karen, over at Library Web chic has some great ideas for keeping up with the things you need to do beyond just putting out fires and reacting to problems.

Getting things done (aka how I keep my head above water)

Over the holiday break, I picked up and read Getting Things Done by David Allen. I’ve been thinking that I should read it for a while now. But in the craziness that was my fall semester I realized I needed some SERIOUS help getting my sh!t together. I was spending way too much time beating out fires and chasing my tail. Considering I’m “Miss Organized”, admitting I had a problem took a while.
