on orderly living

This quote has been tossing around in my head for weeks. Pulled out of how to steal like an artist, its truth has become quite relevant in my life lately. We are in the middle of a few major family transitions and I have some exciting announcements that will be coming up soon. Change and chaos are not becoming of me, so I will be spending this weekend putting many scattered pieces in order. Do you thrive artistically in order or chaos?

PS. If you have a chance this weekend, grab handful of sherbet tulips and tie with teal ribbons for splendid and happy bouquets!

    I find myself being far more productive when everything’s organized. Not nearly as much stressing over what I possibly “forgot” or misplaced!

    It depends on the type of chaos…I function MUCH better in a clean/organized space, but also work really well under pressure with a pressing time line.

    Love the bow. I have to say that I do not cope too well with chaos. I am a real creature of habit. Sometimes my husband tells me I could do with being a little more spontaneous! That being said I do love a good deadline to keep me on my toes.

    Can’t wait to hear all the exciting news, Stephie x

    for some reason, i think that creative people are not naturally organized and orderly—i know that i am not.

    but, i do find it so much easier to concentrate and to be creative when i’m not distracted by a lot of clutter and junk and just a big, fat mess in my house. it is most certainly a lot more fun & less guilt free to do creative things when all of my “chores” are done and the house is semi-organized.

    in the end, it’s whatever works for you and whatever you have time to accomplish. being organized has been an ongoing project for me–really hard, lots of unachieved goals…..i just keep trying….
