Have it all: Organizing Clothes for Success and Quick Everyday Use:

So in life’s quest to have my cake and eat it too, there are a lot of challenges, triumphs, and missteps. One of the challenges I am faced with is getting rid of stuff, cleaning, and organizing.  In order to cut down on my clutter and chaos I have been weeding through my clothes. I am not a shopper, but I am that person that people give big bags of clothes to. I am also the person who holds on to clothes that have been in need of disregard for way too long and has a problem keeping paint and glue off of my everyday wardrobe.

After reading a couple articles about how successful people wear the same outfit  or suit to work everyday,I had an idea. I don’t want to wear the same thing to work everyday; I love color and fashion, but I don’t want to think about what to wear either.

So I decided to bring some order to my wardrobe while also making things less complicated with this system. I have a drawer for work clothes; so pretty much anything with paint, glue, or glitter stains go in that drawer. Then I have a drawer for good clothes, anything presentable enough to not get a frown from my mom when she sees it =) (love you mom). Then I have a couple small drawers sectioned off with cardboard for undies, bras, socks,and other random girly stuff.  This way I do not thrown on a good shirt and then go paint a unicorn horn, and I do not have to do more than pick a top and bottom out of the appropriate drawer and be on my way.

This has helped me weed out a lot of things I don’t wear by leaving me with some stuff that are not appropriate for either drawer. The things that ended up in this pile are things that don’t fit, things that are ripped or stained, and things that just need to go in the trash. So I tossed the garbage, donated and gave away the stuff that didn’t fit, and separated the ripped and stained stuff into 2 piles. One for tie dyeing and one for making reconstructed clothing with. So I can get rid of stuff, but still give myself an excuse to be crafty and keep some stuff too.

Speaking of being crafty stay tuned for my next post about recycling your stained clothes with tie dye and the 2 reason rule!

Have it All: Having it All:

Ok so as some of you may noticed. I have been posting a lot of planner ideas and other organization inspired links. There is a method to this madness. I promise.

I have been thinking lately that I needed something, a new step, an idea, some sort of change. I mean was I happy? I love my bf and my family and I run my own art business from my home so everything should be awesome right? I am blessed, I will never say I am not, but still there are areas I am lacking.

I work constantly and have little time for other things. My house is like a bomb went off. Constantly. I don’t take care of my mental, emotional, physical self as much as I really should.  So yes I am happy, but also according to my nature I want more. A lot more.

I want to have a thriving business, but still have time to eat right, maintain my home,  and spend time with the people I love. I want to work on extensive  awe inspiring creative projects that allow me to really showcase my talents. I want to have time to relax and time to help people who are less fortunate than me. I want all of these things and I want to look good, feel good, and make other people feel good doing it!

So here I am tasked with the delightful idea that I can have it all. It is intimidating, and I honestly I did not think it was even possible until recently, but if I hadn’t gotten to the point where I felt it was impossible I might not be attempting it.

I may be crazy, but I don’t care. Raise a glass because, here is to the start of my one woman journey to Have It All! Are you with me?

Stay tuned for a peek at my daily planner and binder, some new recipes I have been working on, and my unique strategy for getting this disaster area of a home in order.

About Art for a Home and Sustainable Living

Okay, I am an artist. First and foremost I am an artist. I see art in everything, and I think in visuals. I have been making arts and crafts for years, and I have sold a lot of my arts and crafts on ebay and etsy, but lately I have been writing more than anything because I need to make money. But, I think I am finally going to be able to work on my art again, and I am thinking about putting towards a goal in my life. I have dreamed of owning an earthship for years. This self sustaining home is an amazing work of art that would make my living energy efficient and in tune with nature. So, I have decided to sell my art again and put all of the money towards my earthship home. Hence, the title. So I will be posting all of my art here, ans several other sites, and I will post links to my site. I am going to sell my recycled art for my dream home, and this might be the only way that my dream can come true. So if you like art and the earth check out my site and my art. Thanks for listening to my rambles, and I hope to hear from anyone with feedback, comments, and other ideas or inspirations. Let inspiration always move you brightly
