Complete chaotic clutter!!!

Hey guys.  So last night I jumped in shocked when I realized it had been a few days since I checked my email.  Now, the reason I was in shock was not because I wanted to read the email, but because my email was thisclose to being a full capacity.  Well when I checked my email, yep, full capacity.  My mom’s email got bounced from me.  LOL!  It’s any wonder who else got bounced.  It was then I decided I need to get organized and decluttered.  I mean, come on, I had over 1000 emails in my inbox.  I have cut it down to 62 emails I want to actually read, and some of these are back from May!  So if you sent me an email and I haven’t gotten back to you, I’m super duper sorry and I will be going through those and responding.

See, this is why I have not opened my shop yet because I can’t go into it being cluttered and disorganized.  That picture up above, yeah I feel sometimes it fits me perfectly.  Things everywhere, plants dying, that pair of panties I can’t find…yeah I put them in a safe place I just can’t remember where that is exactly.  *sigh*  I am the kind of person that likes to be organized and likes to have a place for everything, but with lack of storage that just isn’t happening right now, so I have to make do with what I have.

But at least I’m attempting something.  My goal is to be fully organized by the end of the year.  I need another to-do list so bad.  I will work on one and post it here.  Hopefully it will keep me accountable.  I want to knock some of these things I’ve been trying to avoid because I don’t want to deal with it.  I’ve left some things so long that it will take DAYS to sort out.  I HATE that.  So I just keep pushing it back and hope the elephant standing in the room or sitting on my desktop doesn’t jump out at me at the most inopportune time and expect me to give it attention, because usually that doesn’t happen and then I get down about not giving it the attention it needs.  Anyone else have this?  I’m sure you do, I think we all do.  Just wish I could stop letting things get lax and stay on top of things.  I want to form the habit of it truthfully.  I know it’s possible.  I’m not giving up.

So to-do list coming soon along with some other stuff.  Gonna go watch Lawrence Welk if he’s on and try to do some sewing or at least pulling out some nice fabrics to use.  I want to use up the yard of Halloween fabric and pop those things into my shop.  I don’t want the season to pass and me not having done anything with the fabric.  I’ve cut myself off from buying any fabric until I use up the bulk of what I have which makes me a little sad.  I want new stuff but I didn’t use the old stuff yet.  :-)

Hey, speaking of which!  Question!  Does anyone have any crafty ideas for a yards worth of furry fabric?  One is really thick long fur and one is thinner shorter fur.  Each peace is about a yard each and I want to do something fun with them.  I was thinking of making pillow monsters our of them, but I wanted to know about some other ideas that I may like better.

Ok, I’m off now.  Gonna go free my poor fabric and pull out some items for dresses.  Bye for now and enjoy the rest of your Saturday!  :-)  Oh, and if you are curious about what it says on the computer screen in the image above, a piss-up, from what I read, is a drinking session and an insult that is said is a person who isn't organized couldn't be trusted to organize a piss-up in a brewery.  Funny?  I think yes.  :-D

Loves ya,


  1. I feel the same way. I am on a mission to use ALL of my beads, charms and other things til there isnt anything left to match!!!

  2. Oh, man-- I'm feeling that overwhelmed by chaos thing too right now, so I feel ya! But wow, 1000 emails!? You win! Congrats on paring them down, lol! And I'm supposed to be using the fabric I have instead of buying more too. Except... yeah. I suck at that. Don't even ask me what I bought today, lol!

  3. Oh man I so should have asked. LOL! I can't help it, I see yummy fabric and I want it!!! But no, I must par down. We can do it ladies! And I will start just as soon as I look at the Thanksgiving fabric. What? I need some for a project I am working on. Hehehe. :-D
