…exactly. I don’t specifically have a “blog more this year” resolution however, I did decide on a single over-arching theme: get organized. My space. My thoughts/actions. My creative time. My work time. My recoup time. I feel like there are things I always want to do yet I always come up with the same “I don’t have the time” excuse. The big fat black-and-white fact is: I do have the time – and I unfortunately choose poorly to spend it otherwise. It was glaring me in the face when I came back from Christmas, or rather, not glaring. I left my phone sitting on my parents kitchen counter when I was doing my usual scramble-out-the-door-to-the-airport thing. From Thursday night when I took off until late the following Tuesday, I was phone-less and, amazingly (or not-so-amazingly if you know me at all), it was wonderful. I organized my whole apartment (we’re talking bathroom, kitchen everything and all closet contents), and managed to create a couple new things in the meantime. Long story long, I spend too much time doing things that don’t make a dent (i.e. forever-scrolling instagram, pinning all apartment decoration possibilities on pinterest) and not enough time doing things that bring proper joy to my life (i.e. creating anything using a drill/copic markers/exacto knife/dirt/rope (macrame is the latest obsession)/paper/gauche/sewing machine… you get the picture.)

For my first “get organized” activity, I started small with my night routine – by turning on my alarm, placing my phone across the room and going back to the basics: reading before bed. So far, we’re off to a fresh new start, my phone and me. Kind of feels like a relationship that starts to go awry so you have to step back and readjust. Luckily, this one isn’t too far gone…

Stay Tuned…
New project coming this weekend! I saw this darling little pot at Anthropologie recently and decided that it would be fun to do on my own with fimo clay! I can’t wait to start this meow. There meow possibly be a smaller kitten-esque one in need meow too…
