It’s a crazy world swirling around me

It’s a crazy world swirling around me

…I’ve got no time. …I can’t possibly get that completed. …There’s no way I can fit anything else in my day….. I’m sure many of you have had similar thoughts before, maybe even right now, or last year or last month. Well, I’m right in the middle of crazy currently. And the nutty thing is, […]

Everyday rituals

Everyday rituals

I’m not the kind of spiritual practitioner or person who can stick with the same daily ritual for months on end. I get bored, the rituals don’t fill me up as much, or my sleep cycle gets out of wack (thanks insomnia). And yet I crave those touchstones in my mornings and evenings, those bookends […]

Going analogue- aka playing outside this summer

Going analogue- aka playing outside this summer

I’ve been spending a lot of time in the digital realm. In the last 2 months I’ve held free webinars on email sanity, supported a bunch of people through the Take Back your Inbox challenge and created the Tame your Tech Chaos masterclass. I’ve done all this focused work so I can go analogue as […]

Emotions behind organizing- memories, loss and when to let go

Emotions behind organizing- memories, loss and when to let go

You can organize all the possessions that you already have. To do that takes patience and forethought as to where to store things and how to access them. You can sort and contain everything without ever getting rid of anything, but the emotional challenge in organizing comes from de-cluttering or purging.  Purging your stuff is the […]

Bye-Bye art calendars

Bye-Bye art calendars

I’ve always wanted to find the perfect solution for each need or circumstance. Huh? What do you mean? Well…I’m always collecting purses and bags trying to find the right fit and function for different situations. I’m always trying out new storage containers and I used to try and find the perfect paper calendar each year. But a few […]

Arguing with time

Arguing with time

I’ve got so many desires, interest and ideas that I could fill a lifetime with projects and tasks and collaborations. Yet, I must sleep, eat, hydrate and find time to do NOTHING to prevent burn out, so I’m present for my clients, husband, children and friends. But how do I reign in all that I […]

Never Miss an Important Email Again

Never Miss an Important Email Again

Email is the main way we communicate these days. Whether it’s an invitation to your best friend’s birthday, a potential new client, even our partner’s vacation schedule often comes through email. But once it’s there how do we find it again? Did we even see it in the first place? What’s the next step once […]

My favorite Paper organizing tools

My favorite Paper organizing tools

In our current day and age, where there’s so much information in digital format.  It’s easy to forget or get confused about what to do with the paper we still get, have, and want to keep.  Going to a paperless system is great and I love helping people make that happen. And it’s best done […]

I’m sure I can…put together a kids birthday party in one afternoon? HA

I’m sure I can…put together a kids birthday party in one afternoon? HA

Have you ever looked at your “to-do” list and notice that there’s one or two things that can’t seem to get off that list.  It’s usually something challenging for me, it’s not the easy, send an email thanking someone, or drop a letter in the mail.  It’s “Daughter’s birthday party” or “Trip to New York”. […]

Staying in the creative flow

Staying in the creative flow

I’ve been hanging out on Instagram lately (you can find me there). It’s been inspiring me to try out acrylic pouring.  I get really excited about all the possibilities when I watch the paint flow around the surface.  Plus it challenges my need to control things, as this art medium is notoriously unpredictable. Here’s a […]
