My 2012 word is...

Organise!

The fact that it has taken me so long to post this on here speaks volumes about how well my one-little-word for 2012 is going for me so far (aka: not very well!). But now that I have my layout created and stuck up on the wall perhaps it will keep me motivated:

Supplies: Crate Paper: Random Paper and Chipboard Elements, Farmhouse Alphas and Chipboard Elements, Portrait 6x6 Paper and Border Stickers; American Crafts 'Thanks' Clear Stamps (stamped with brown ink), Adhesive Gems and Stripey Paperclips from HobbyCrafts, Lace from Haberdashery, Staples, Black Journal Pen.

Journaling reads:
'I'm determined to get organised this year - in various aspects of my life. Planning sessions with Rosie and Ali have helped me work out what I need to do - inc. decluttering, a housework rota, and planning ahead for my blog. Of course, actually implementing all these is another task entirely - I hope I manage it!'



I really want to sort my life out a bit - I feel like I'm always playing catch-up with myself. Hopefully you'll see me blogging a bit more regularly if I put my one-little-word to good use.

Do you have a word that means a lot to you this year? Or do you have any organisational tips for me? Any ideas considered!

Such a nice page, I like how you've picked up on the colours in your photo. Best of luck with the organisation - as someone without any children to juggle [which you can probably literally do, can't you?] I wouldn't dream of giving you any advice!

As for blogging ... the draft post is most definitely your friend. That's how I'm spending this afternoon - sketching out posts in draft for the entire month!

Anyone with two young children has to do a certain amount of thinking on the hoof, don't they? Best of luck with your Year of Organisation!

I'm right there with you. My word is home, and a big part of it is about organizing all the various parts of my home. I try to work on one area each, and I'm starting to make some progress.

Jen this is stunning! I love the layering, the colours, that ribbon, well all of it!

Louise said...

lovely layout Jennifer and I like your thinking - hope it works for you.

When things get too much for me I write lists and lists and slowly work through them.

Great word! Please post what you find that works to help you with it :) What a cool layout, love the lace!

Jennifer ... this is a stunning page ... so much detail ... and such a good idea to scrap your 2012 aim!! My only advice is "write lists for everything" and "prioritise" xx

Lovely layout and a great word, I could do with being more organized so I wish you lots of luck. My word this year has to be 'spontaneous' :)
