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 6×6 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! Julie 🙂

  • 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.rinda

  • 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’ 🙂
