Getting Organized to Get Stitching

So, one of the motivating factors in the great purge (which is finally happening after 4 years of meaning to get it done, and starting each January to do so) is to be able to spend more time doing what I love: crafting. You’ll note, I am sure that I just haven’t been doing very much of it. I’m hoping that once I get the house under control, and I am so very close, that I will feel the liberty to just sit and stitch.

Now, in addition to just getting rid of massive amounts of stuff, I am also organizing as I go. So, when I saw this: Organizational development university, I had to chuckle to myself. Of course, my first thought was that it was a course in organizing your stuff. I was wrong on that, it’s actually a program that teaches you how lead organizations–businesses and the like. Pretty cool, if that’s your focus, and you need an online course because of a hectic lifestyle. Which we all know I have, being the queen of hectic, but the only thing I am leading these days is a troop of conscripted kids to pick up the dirty underwear off the floor before I go stark raving mad! Yes, it is that basic sometimes. Most of the time. Ok, all of the time, but a different kid each time.

Now all of that is not to say that there is no stitching going on. In fact I have one thing in progress and 2 in the immediate wings, all crochet, but I can’t talk about any of them just yet. They are all secret projects, you see, and can only be worked on when the risk of discovery is very slight. Of course, once I yell “pick up your underwear” for the fortieth time, the kids do tend to try to more or less vanish. Perhaps I can use that to my advantage, considering as how there are only 19 stitching days left until Christmas. *GULP*
