Complete Chaos

Here I am…still here
Lately I feel like things are too chaotic in my life.  Too much stuff, too many things going on at once, not enough time to enjoy myself.  It is part of the reason I haven’t blogged on here for so long.  It didn’t feel like it was something I wanted to do, more like something I needed to do.  I already have a job, I don’t need another.

So I’ve decided to try and get myself back to where I want to be.

My craft room was driving me insane.  There wasn't enough room to do anything and I couldn't get comfortable in there and didn't feel creative. (sorry for the dark photo)

I got a new desk for my birthday and decided to do some organizing because I was craving some white space.  It's still a work in progress but I no longer have an anxiety attack when I walk into the room. 

I also started writing things down in a planner and making some lists.
Any suggestions on ways to bring more order to your life?
I need all the help I can get!!

  1. My whole house is making me feel like this right now. : ) It's not super cluttered, I just want to change everything. Maybe it's an early bout of spring cleaning.

    Your craft room looks great! I wish I had some tips for you, but clearly I need some myself!

  3. I totally understand how you're feeling too. I'm getting through the days at the moment by reflecting on what I've actually achieved before going to bed. It may just be doing a batch of washing or tidying a small corner, but the reflection makes it hit home that it is an achievement.

    1. I have been making an effort to get certain things done before going to bed these days. It seems to help because there is nothing worse than waking up to a mess.

  4. For me, it's complete organization. I can't have clutter or I feel exactly like you. So, I began the organization process.

    I have a storage bin for almost everything - scrapbooking supplies, computer software discs, marker bin, highligher bin, etc. It may seem like overkill but for me... I love it when everything is organized.

    Write a list of things that need organization and create labels for everything. The list will help give you a mental and visual organization.

  5. Oh I love it. I was thinking of painting my craft room a minty green colour.

    I like to say my room is organised chaos. I think it's actually just a mess :P x

    1. I'm actually going to repaint this room. It took me ages and lots of paint to get to this mint color I can't believe I actually want to go through that process again.
