being creative does take planning!

My creative space today isn't very exciting; but is very necessary.
Suddenly I have lots in my diary. Lots of little things adding up to one big busy month ahead.
So, I found the roll of kids paper, and ruled up the next 2+ months of plans.
Work plans, school plans and personal plans. All there for us to see what we need to do.

Coming up in the next month I have ::
weekly Thursday afternoons in Ari's classroom, helping the teacher
Romeo + Juliet modern ballet + a girly night with my three sisters
birthday party for my dear friend's son + a present to make
working bee at school, for the Mother's Day stall
two craft markets over one weekend
prep work for both the markets
baking for another school event + helping on the day
a workshop + talk to prepare for
another craft market

plus we want to go away, for our birthday or anniversary or something
and we've just decided to take Mishi out of her daycare (kindy) days, so she will now be at home with me full time again.

immediate jobs for today include tidying the kids bedroom (I think a whirlwind must have swooshed in there and knocked everything off every single shelf). The pile of laundry will have to wait another day to be folded and put away, I suppose!

Visit Kirsty, where there are sure to be some creative souls actually doing something beautifully creative.


  1. Just imagine how creative you will be able to be now that you are organised!!

  2. This is organisation I can only dream of! Love the noticeboard.

  3. I love a planner. Our house simply would not function without our family planner...columns for everyone & cross referenced too.

  4. Great space. It looks so organised.

  5. that is an awesome calendar right there!
    and what beautiful creative space too! x

  6. Love this beautiful board of yours!!What a great way to tackle all those tasks...but do not forget to breathe as you writing all those things to do!! :)X

  7. I love planers and lists. Writing them almost always makes me feel like everything is already done...not just noted on a piece of paper. Maybe I fool myself but making a list makes me calm, suddenly feeling on top of things again. I bit like decluttering my brain I suppose.

    Take care

  8. What a beautiful (and organised) little space. I tend to be the whirlwind of which you speak. Can't wait until my kids are old enough to clean up after *me*!

  9. Sounds like you have busy month or two, hope the planner makes it easier. Great idea doing it on the kids paper. I find calendars never have enough room to write everything in so the big squares like that are brilliant.
