Hello loves, did you know that I used to be a civil servant? Not only that I was pretty good project manager, I had lists flow charts, Filofaxes, spread sheets and project timelines. That’s nice I hear you say, but why are we talking about this? I’m talking about it because I have become so disorganised!!! Pain, medication and the mental effects of fibromyalgia have robbed me of all my skills. Couple that with an imagination that races around at a 100mph, and this is what you get……
So what is the solution? Before is started this blog I took a blog writing course at Www.creativelive.com, it was taught by a fantastic woman called April Bowles Olin, well April writes a fantastic blog as does her best friend Mayi Carles, and Mayi is the queen of organisation! she is running a project called Life is Messy to support this she has a wonderful package of downloads, that organise every aspect of your working and personal life, I have just downloaded it, are you ready for a sneeky peek?….
Throughout the package there are Mayis illustrations.
There are planners for the year, month and daily…. .
There re are ways to establish your unique talents…..
There are also planners for your personal life, like meal planners and emergency contact lists…..
There so many pages, I haven’t posted them all as this post would be a mile long!
This planner will now enable me to have a weekly planning session, and gives me somewhere to right down all my ideas.
I will also be heading over to April’s blog – http://www.blacksburgbelle.com, and reading through her guidelines for new creative businesses ( find it on the site in the New? Start here section) , here’s the articles that are jumping out to me……..

So it’s time for me to get organised and also to start being professional, because what started as a distraction has actually turned into a proper business!
Please share any organising or business tips, I’m always grateful for any suggestions!
