I’m on information overload…and a winner!!

I’ve surrounded myself this weekend with 148 Professional Organizers and soaking up a lot of fine wisdom that I’ll eventually pass on to you of course. My poor ego has taken a bit of a beating here though. As I went around introducing myself to many of the ladies, I quickly realized that no one had even heard of me. The conversation went something like this:


Hi, I’m Laura. You may have heard of me ~ I’m the Organizing Junkie!

blank stare

Oh – well – I’m also known as The Freak!

blank stare

I have a blog…..

blank stare


Okay so in all fairness the blank stares may have had something to do with the hideous red puffy raccoon eyes I’m sporting due to some kind of freakish allergy thing I have going on. Nothing says “professional” like freak eyes don’t ya know! Then this morning at breakfast, when I’d all but given up, I exchanged business cards with my seat mate who just happened to be from the US and she said “I know you, I’ve read your blog!” Yippee!! I’m telling you she totally made my day!! Hi Beth!

So enough about me, let’s get on to announcing the winner of the NeatReceipts Scanalizer. The winner, selected by random.org is #90!!


Congratulations Tiffany, please send me your address :)

    I sure hope that your allergy issues have cleared up! I know what a pain they can be and it’s no fun! I’m looking forward to hearing more about your trip and the things you learned. :) Also, I wanted to say thank you for your blog. I’ve been overwhelmed with organizing for awhile but now I am jumping into and just going for it! I just started the big project of organizing the PAPER in my life!

    Oh, I know exactly what you mean. It’s so sad when you don’t know people. Then again, more friends to make :)

    I want to hear everything (more from a business point of view). Let’s set up Skype? Online chat?

    The day I meet someone new and they already know me from my blog will be hilarious! It sounds like a great time. I just love conferences and seminars. We’re going to another one on education this weekend and I can’t wait!

    Hi Laura – I wondered what was wrong with your eyes – but being the nice person that I was I didn’t ask! I thought it had something to do with a cold! It was a GREAT pleasure to meet you and to keep seeing your smiling face during the conference. Kudos to you – already organizing your toy room in the basement – how did you ever manage to do that!
