As much as I want to get organized, I realize that I must also organize my time. I have another blog for the business, and I have not written on it in about a year. I really need to organize my time so that I spend time working on it and keeping it up to date with the items to sell and getting my name out there for trying to sell things.
I also need to organize my time, so that I have time to do the things that make me happy, ( my bead work, my eggs, Quilting, photography,my fimo clay work, my trains, dollhouses, and painting) I can not do all of it in one day, but I can learn to budget time during the day to work two or more projects and also find time to relax and enjoy the day. One way that I relax is by doing my Art Journaling. I try to do it first thing in the morning, as well as my writing pages. The writing of Pages helps me to focus on the tasks for the day and to feel more calm and collect and to better understand the way my brain can just take off with ideas and needing a place to write them down.
I also love to read, and a nice warm bath, with a good drink and good book is a great way to relax at the end of the day. I love magazines especially ones about the craft work that I am interested in , such as quilting, art journaling, , egging ( yea there are publications about egging and the eggers that make the eggs.) beading and scale modeling. I get more then my fair share of magazines every month, and sometimes it is hard to keep up with reading them. So I have ended up with stacks of magazines around my chair that are still waiting to be read. and of course I want to keep them for reference. I need to find a place to do that, so they are not taking up too much room on the bookcase. ( and in case you are wondering, yes I do earmark things, ideas or designs and go back and do them)
My darling hubby ofter complains that there are 4 chairs in my craft room, and no place to sit because they always have stuff in them. I am trying very hard to keep them clean, so that there are places to sit and the floor is safe to walk on.
Well, that’s all the news from the south,
Happy” farming” to all the farm girl sisters out there.
See you next time down on the farm.
