Organising tools that will motivate you to succeed

Living Creatively with Fibro | Completing a big task

If you read my post about how I am documenting this year you will be aware of the organising tools I am using. One of those tools, Remember the Milk, has had some large tasks showing as outstanding for longer than I would like. These are tasks that need doing but are not assigned to any specific day and there are a few tasks on the list that have been there since July, I know, embarrassing….

Married without Children

Living Creatively with Fibro | Married without Children

As a blogger, it is fair to say that I spend time following and reading several of my fellow bloggers. This allows me to be inspired by their journeys and learn my craft. One thing that constantly seems to hit me is the number of lifestyle bloggers who are talking about their role of being Mum. The importance of being organised as a busy mum, creative projects to do with children and making the house homely for a family. All of those topics resonate with me.

My beautiful digitally crafted blog planner spine label

I couldn’t resist sharing this quick post to show you the spine label I have created for my blog planning file. It is fair to say that I am going to be encouraged to pick up and use my planner every time the label catches my eye. I designed it in Serif Craft Artist using the Butterfly Meadow Digikit which is one of my favourite kits from one of my favourite digikit artists, Victoria Nelson. I may even decide to start making some bookmarks, which is what Michael originally thought I was doing. On Saturday 7th January the post about this and other planners and journals will be released.

How to look after your hands whilst you wash up

Living Creatively with Fibro | Hand care doing the dishes

I’m sure at some point when we have a full house rather than a flatlet we will invest in a dishwasher. However, at this point, there is zero space to put one so the task comes down to us. It is also a well-known fact that without taking the proper care even someone in perfect health can wreck their hands doing this.
