I feel like I’ve been in bed or really just out of it for way too long. And when I say out of it, my brain is really out of it. The lack of iron–or oxygen moving in my body–must affect my brain as well. It takes a lot for me to focus and think straight.

Now the mess in my studio is completely out of control and all I have wanted to do was get it organized again. And today, I’m completely motivated to get this space under control!



Is it just me? Please tell me there are more of you out there that move piles from one location to another just so you can work in this spot or that spot. See that little space above? Yeah, that was  my current spot to do a couple things.

It’s pretty ridiculous to let it get this bad, but folks…this is reality sometimes.

Mess can get the best of us–especially when you’re not well or so completely busy that cleaning up the last mess isn’t a priority, which results in the mess continuing to pile up.

I’m coming back to that simplify word again. I believe the phrase, ‘A stitch in time, saves nine.’ applies to messes, does it not? If we’d just clean up the current mess, it wouldn’t turn into as big of a mess that takes way longer to clean up.

I am 50. You’d think I would have applied this to my life by now.
If I would just clean as I go, life would be much simpler.

What tips and tricks do you have for keeping organized and clean?
