Getting Started

Ok friends. This is it. We are getting it started. No more sitting around, ignoring the fact that I want to do crafty things or I need to do a blog or I could do this or that or whatever. I am getting up and doing it.

Part of my problem is trying to do to much. Happens to me all the time. My dad used to tell me (and probably still would) that I had "too many irons in the fire." Moral of the story? Try to do too much, you get burned.

This is what I have to work with. My big, disturbing, uncontrollable mess of a craft room. It is the personification of my busy heart, mind, body and spirit. Everything a jumbled mess, thrown onto a table, so if you walk into the house you can at least be fooled into thinking there is some order.

So last night, I went to a member workshops with Crown Town Handmade. The entire night was about blogging. We talked about what to blog, how to blog, how not to blog, why to blog, when to blog, how much to blog, blah blah blah. But there was one thing that was said in passing by Nikki from Not Made in China. She said "Everything is a decision". She was primarily speaking concerning your blog. Your font, pictures, logos, whatever, matters. It hit me much deeper than that, however.

That is a sentiment I feel I must adopt in my daily life. "Everything is a decision." Getting up and going for a run is a decision. Eating eggs and fruit for breakfast instead of cookies is a decision. Getting my head in the game and once and for all cleaning out my damn craft room is a decision.

So today, I'm doing it. I'm cleanin' house. Kickin' organization's ass and takin' names. I'm going to get my life in order and figure out how to live up to the name of my soon-to-be-thriving little business: Restoration.


  1. Awesome post! Thanks for coming last night. So glad you found some inspiration.

  2. Yay Liz! Maybe I will go in and clean up my craft room today too and stop making excuses that "I have too much going on to clean it up right now".

  3. It's so great to hear that you are officially getting it all started! So glad you came to the workshop and I look forward to seeing you at many more CTHm events!! Best of luck on the blog - can't wait to read more. :)
