I am a huge HGTV fan, so today when I started brainstorming ways make my home office more functional and beautiful, of course was my first stop. Here’s a great article outlining tips for designing an inspiring work space.

10 Tips for Designing Your Home Office : Rooms : Home & Garden Television.

My personal favorite? Definitely tip #8! I must have an organized workspace…seeing cords everywhere drives me crazy! What’s your favorite?

Use your words!

Ok, I admit it: I’m kind of a nerd. One of my very favorite websites (that I use constantly) is It’s not just an online dictionary, but also a thesaurus, an encyclopedia and a translator – and so much more! For a diversion, I like to solve (or try to solve) the daily crossword or play one of the word games. All that said, the best feature (in my humble opinion) is the Word of the Day. You can have it emailed to you or sent to your mobile phone – how convenient is that!

Every morning I’m greeted with a new word to play with. Checking morning email is so much more enjoyable! I like to write the day’s word & definition in a notebook along with a sentence or two using the word in context to help me remember it. Then I try to use it at least 3 times that day. I told you I was a little nerdy. đŸ™‚

In any case, it’s a fantastic way to increase your vocabulary (and impress your friends – well, probably not, but learning new words is never a bad thing).

Hello world!

Welcome to The Modern Wrinkle, the Capstone Support Solutions blog! One of the great things about being a virtual assistant is the opportunity (and obligation) to keep learning. Clients expect an administrative office specialist to keep on top of  industry trends (and it seems that I always have at least one personal project that I’m working on in my spare time – anything from organizing our family reunion to creating a database of favorite recipes) so I am forever reading, researching and trying new ways to get things done.

The Modern Wrinkle is my vehicle for sharing all I have learned and continue to learn. Here you’ll find an abundance of tips and techniques as well as useful information about the virtual assistance industry. My hope is that you will find the info posted here helpful and insightful. I can’t wait to get started!

Of course, I’d love to hear what you have to say, so don’t hesitate to share your thoughts and opinions!
