Proof that things need to change around here, 
as I was writing this, Jason walked by and asked 

"is it my birthday?"

One of his languages of love is the absence of clutter and chaos.

Most of my life is built upon clutter and chaos.

So, inspired by this post from Crystal, a brilliant comment from Angie (get a blog so I can link to you!) and this font from Stephanie, I typed up a little inspiration for daily change.  I printed it out and am displaying it so I can see it everyday. 

I will attempt to finish and put away whatever I am working on before succumbing to my craft A.D.D. and starting something else.

I will clean or wash something.  Pretty easy, since Janey is a non-stop destroyer of all clothing, blankets and burp cloths.

I will sort my crazy piles and stacks to control the clutter.

I will plan better so I can cook everyday.  It is something that I really love to do, I just don't like constantly running to the grocery store.

I will make a list of necessary but un-fun tasks and try little by little to muddle through them.

I will continue to make something everyday, because that is what makes me so happy.

I will write an email, a text, an thank you card, an encouragement note or a blog post.

Now I know that this is an ambitious undertaking.
I will not succeed 100% everyday.
But something is better than nothing.

My house will be more peaceful, I will sleep better and my husband won't know what hit him.


  1. I need to adopt this list as my own. :)
    Love your new flower headbands!

  2. I think about this daily....I also have craft, need to do a project, paint something, rearrange something A.D.D. It's a sickness I tell ya. I just talked about this w/ my mom last night. I need to make my list as well, but I'd lose it.

  3. Love your blog! Your family is beautiful, your creations are amazing.

  4. Oh goody! You liked it! :) I read your post out loud to my hubby - he had two things to say, I do need to start a blog :), and that Jason sounded just like someone he knew (himself)! I like the writing something, that one is going on my list!

  5. This is a great idea! I need to do this- my husband would be shocked! :)

    Thanks for the inspiration!

  6. it looks soooo cute!

  7. I love this! I'm definitely going to to try to incorporate it in my life!

  8. i would need to add one thing to that list "play something."

    i am the opposite, i can get so caught up in the other somethings, that i do not do this one important something.

  9. Don't even remember how I found this blog, but it's exactly what I needed to be reminded of tdday! Hope you don't mind if I print out your jpg. (And love the font too!)
