To begin my Health and Organization January 1

We are going to start with the upstairs stamp room since its the most organized room and I just have to pick up a few things to get it organized.

Then we will tackle the Downstairs by the computer, and then the last room will be the downstairs Room to open it up so I can paint and do everything in that room.  I am really excited to get some things done.  I really want to start tonight, but tonight is the 27th of December.   So I'm going to take a look at my other rooms and gather all the stamps I have and incorporate them into this room.  I am then going to straiten up the floor.  To make room to walk around in there.  Each day I will Blog my things that I have accomplished.

Today I have decided to make Haystack cookies.  They're a no bake cookie - just melt the butterscotch chips and coat the Chinese Chow Mien noodles and cool on a piece of wax paper.

Waiting patiently for the stuff to melt..... ok changed from butter scotch chips that would not melt to vanilla melti chocolates and finished them much faster added red sprinkles. YUM!

Health and Organization

 I was trying to put this on, but  it was too big. but it kept failing so I knew it would fit here!!

Health and Organization.

When we look at a room like this - we feel overwhelmed, depressed, insecure, and out of sorts, we sneeze and cough with the dust that accumulates.

This room - I'm sad to say, this is one of three places in my house that I use to store, and make crafts.  I design and create my own cards, using rubber stamps and various other embellishments.

I also create amazing scrapbooks for myself. You would say that it's organizing in itself, but, preparing to do anything requires; one, to first get messy, then to create-- part of getting messy is cleaning up afterwards.  My mother said do it right away.  Ha ha..... I'm an adult, I can do it when i want.... so turn it around and let organization be your adult side again.  Make life more calm and organize.

I am talking to myself, but I'm sure there are those of you who are out there who have similar difficulties.

At my home all my rooms have a mess of some kind or another.

My rules:

1. Plan your day.
2. Get up early.
3. Set a schedule.
4. Write down a list of easy things to do.
5. Pick one room (an easy one)

If you are like me, you get board easy.
7 Pick two rooms to work with.  Schedule even time between the two.

8. Plug that music in and whistle while you work
9. Check off the completed items!!

I found a positive message I have posted on my wall.

by Francis of Assisi

Start by doing whats Necessary,
Then do what's possible,
and suddenly you are doing the impossible.!!

I would love to hear any comments about what you think.  My grandmother and mother did grow up in the depression era., I have always been a saver of some sort, it used to be just money... now its stuff.  I started my blog on my messy craft room.

I am going to get organized and Smile doing it!! Are you with me.!!!  Oh and I will post my progress!!

My two rooms is that picture of my craft room and my bathroom.

Days pass by so quickly...

What have I been up to??.  I'm getting ready to open my own business, but first I'm starting from scratch going to business classes through Puget Sounds Women's Business Center. So cool the things I am learning.  Plus taking some art classes to bone up on my skills.  I painted this lovely painting of Poppies at "Uncorked Canvas" .

I didn't think it looked like flowers at first but all things fall together when you add that white thingy in the middle.  :D  Do you believe there are black and orange stripe in the background of the blue and other colors - wow there are.... it was amazingly fun!!
