The Organizing Bug

Often before an anticipated busy part of life, I decide I need to be more organized so that I can keep afloat during the upcoming busy time. Ironically, by the time I'm finished prepping for the busy time, I have been so busy getting organized that the busy time is quite relaxed.

Next Friday, October 8th, I begin working on my Master in Fine Arts. I know it will be busy. So I have been re-organizing and making large messes by sorting, stacking, un-piling, re-piling, moving, cleaning and eventually throwing out. I know it will all come together by next Friday, but it seems impossible right at this very moment :-) You can see this below in my studio...

How do I keep a balance during my pre-busy busy time? My love of the outdoors and the walks I can take near my home relax my mind and get me away from it all. That as well as a really good book.... actually three, that I leave lying around for those spur-of-the-moment drop-on-the-couch-and-read opportunities.

Needless to say, I am looking forward to defeating the organization bug, so I can be un-busier than I am.


  1. Your outdoors looks very inviting.
    Good luck with the organizing. My creative areas always become chaos.

  2. It's a lovely photo! I've been where you are studio-wise with massive reorganization. It's a huge job, but so satisfying when you're finished! Good luck in school, too. nancy
