My thoughts on organization:
I am often told by my friends and family "I don't know how you do it all!" I laugh when people tell me that. I have the same amount of hours in a day that everyone else does but I think being organized and having a plan is key. I am at my happiest when my house is clean and organized, my to do list has several checks on it, and I am relaxing with my family.
As a child I had (for the most part) a clean room. I was constantly re-arranging my room and organizing my toys. My first job out of college was at a bank. The bank sent me to a Franklin Covey seminar and I was so excited to be there. That was my first introduction to time management and I still use some techniques from that seminar today.
I originally started this blog to share my digital scrapbooking and as a free form outlet to write about things in my life. I have several friends that ask me for tips on my organization, the forms, binders, and calendar I use, the "school" fun I do with my kids in the summer and how I go about organizing my life. After helping a few friends I felt honored that they liked what I was doing and wanted my help, but I also felt really good about helping them get their life organized. So I thought "maybe I can share this with others" and now my blog has a purpose!
I am hoping to share all my creative idea and what is working for me. I am also hoping my blog will be an outlet for others to share what is working for them. I am constantly looking to improve my process and learn from others. So follow me along and see why it appears that I do it all!
