Hello. Have we met before? I’m Ali. The blogger chick who really loves new finds, but abandoned said blog and her followers since mid-July. Awful. Seriously awful. I’ve missed you!
Here’s the deal. Sister landed a new job! A job I began on July 2nd, and since then life has been off the charts busy…busy in a good way, of course! My desk is always a mess; the work of a genius right? I’ve got non-profit work galore and a nearing “Follies” production that is consuming life. Still, there’s nothing I’d change. J also started a new job the week before I began mine, so we’ve been adjusting to new schedules and learning curves. So much has happened over the last four months, but I’m skipping those details; otherwise I’d be writing for days. I’m back, and I’m renewing the commitment I made when I started Oh So Ali. My deepest appreciation to those of you who follow.
I look forward to returning from my blogging hiatus. More to come, I promise.

While my life can get pretty chaotic at times, there’s not much that can make me happier than having everything organized and labeled. I was a fan of Martha Stewart long before I ever worked on her television show, and since then, I’ve only gotten more categorized and color-coded. There’s something about that bird’s egg blue and the accents of red that are a match made in heaven for me. So, imagine my joy when MS announced her home office line exclusive to Staples. As I rushed out to the nearest Staples store (I had to see it in person), it was SO difficult not to buy everything! So, I came away with a few must-haves…chalkboard labels, elastic tags, food labels (that don’t leave a sticky residue, yea!), a dry erase stick-on decal, a red binder and lots of goodies to place inside it. Make sure to check out the collection for yourself.
