Organize Simplify Create Design

It is perpetual, living life and keeping it simple. Peace of mind comes from having a place for things. As I watched "Horton Hears a Who", with my grandchildren I thought about no matter how "tiny" the thing, it deserves a home. So I live by the old adage, a place for everything and everything in its respective place...

Glitter Anyone

I love bling! With glitter you can add bling to anything! I love stamping and adding glitter before the stamp design dries. I also have been known to paint my brad if I lack the proper color and dip it in glitter rather than pay big bucks for a pack if I only want one or two of that color. I use the little popcorn things that come as packing material to stick my brad in when I paint it or glitter it. Holds it until it's dry!

Curse or Blessing?

Is being organized a curse or a blessing? Many of us are naturally inclined to line things up, sort things out and make order out of chaos. Some of us might be considered OCD (obsessive compulsive disorder), even if we are not. We may drive those we live with over the brink. Occasionally our friends envy our order, others laugh us off.

Now if being "organized" is a blessing, what are the benefits? WE can find things, we can direct others to things in our homes. We have inner peace because everything has its own space. There is less stress because chaos does not live with us.

Is there a happy medium? I sincerely hope so, an organizer always has a project or three going. We don't get bored. The perfect relationship is when both people in the household like things orderly.
