neat and tidy

April 21, 2010

The work table is clean again. The messes are cleared off and I am ready to get crackin’ at making another mess (shop update coming soon). My shelves are a bit tidy too. Though, my studio is far from clean. It is organized chaos as everything is put away, but not organized. So it is kinda clean, but not really. I really want to get more shelves up to help me, but I need to find some shelves to put up first. Oh boy! I am always a work in progress, but life is like that don’t you think?

I will be sure to get some work time in this afternoon, but right now, I just want to cuddle with my girls all day long. It is gloomy outside and drizzling, staying in bed and being under the covers is just so inviting. Good thing, I have a list of to-dos today to keep me focused. Do you make a list of daily to-dos? If so, what is on your list today?

    I couldn't resist snuggling with those sweet girls, either!

    Guess my cat will have to do 😉
    I used to make lists, but I just get disappointed when I (inevitably) don't accomplish something on them- so now I just do what I have to!

    your girls are adorable!
    I used to make lists but now I try to just go with the flow – although it is easy to get distracted! : )

  • Becky says:

    clean, but that's always on my list. Prep dinner, write a little, prepare a new excel grid for our investments (snore), nap.

    I should have a to-do list..but all the “have-to's” are really in my head..rattling around in there.

    Today's list includes getting through a lot of work projects then at home doing a load of laundry, cleaning up the kitchen which is in a bit of a mess post-baking-muffins last night, and remembering to get to the store for toilet paper. Ran out this morning – of TP and kleenex in the house. Too close for comfort. But I'm sure I'm the only one who has done that, right?!

    Oh yeah – the exciting event of the evening is the youth ministry baptism tonight: three of my 8th grade girls are getting baptized along with a group of other kids as well.

  • Is that your oldest on the right?…she looks just like you. 🙂

    your little girls are too cute!

    isn't it nice when the work table is cleaned up? but then it makes us have the urge to get it messy again!

    Couldn't agree more: here we are always a work im progress too!

    I don't make lists for the day, but for things in general tha I have to get done. I have a little note book just for that, and I keep it always in my purse, to remember what I have to do an to writte down some new to-do that I might think of.
    My 2 top items are 1- to buy a cover for my washing machine (my cats destroyed the one I had), 2-find a place to celebrate Lilla's 1st bday party in august (as we live in a small apartament with no space for the kids to play), 3- Get Lilla's Visa (as we are going to California in august!)

    kisses from Brzil!

    getting my sewing machine fixed,
    making pinwheels,
    and cooking a whole entire chicken.

    love these photos of your creative space!

    my studio is always a mess! love your work space!

  • jane says:

    hey! your work space looks a lot cleaner than when i was over. haha! i want to play again!!!!!

  • Melissa says:

    Cute picture of your girls. I'm a little envious of the nice work space. Mine is the dining room table and I try to clear it for dinner every night so my craft closet, which is quite large so I can't complain, gets piled with in-progress projects. Ironically, on my list today was to finish some of the half-done projects. Yeah, I actually did finish 2 projects. I finished a quilt that has been waiting to be finished for the last 3 months and I finished a summer dress for my sweet girl. Check, check 🙂

  • Rubyellen says:

    jane- um. yeah… the house looks a lot better!!!

    ampersandity- danni tells me wonderful things about you too!

    everyone- i can never get everything organized. organized chaos is what i am!

  • On my list grocery shop for the in-laws for their weekend stay and clean up the sewing room. Thanks for some motivations. It's gloomy here too… I might cuddle with my people instead too!
