Late Autumn...Out My Backdoor

More Organization


Organization is the key to having more time to create. I make the biggest messes with my art supplies and spend half my time trying to clean it up or find things. I bought these cute little stackable drawers for my beads and buttons and some clear compartment boxes too.

No Art Today

I've been so busy with my crochet, work, family and friends lately, that I now live in a mess! I haven't cleaned or shopped for food in ages. I'm ashamed to admit how many times I've eaten at McDonald's in the past couple of months. Last night I actually cooked dinner. Cooking, cleaning and shopping seem like such huge inconveniences these days. I get so involved in my creating that I forget to eat sometimes. Even showering takes such effort. Today I must get to the bank to make a deposit and then do a little shopping. I am planning to clean for a couple of days and then it's back to creating.

Been Busy

The past week has been a blur. Working my real job and recreating a necklace to send to Belle Armoire Jewelry. I had to drive to Pittsburgh (a two hour drive) to get the supplies I needed for the necklace. Living in a rural area is lovely most of the time, but it's difficult to get the things I need in a hurry. Here is the end result of my necklace project.
