EDITED from Charlotte, NC: I fixed the video (it wasn’t working this morning) and I just have to say that I am already SO IMPRESSED with my friend Donna and everything she and her team have put together–this is exactly what I need!
I have recently decided that I want to “expect” a bit less of myself. I’m always telling others to let go of unrealistic expectations, so it’s time I stop letting super-high expectations keep me from doing some things. For a long time, I’ve been asked to share details of the method behind my madness when it comes to organizing by color.
I’ve seriously wanted to do something super-cool on my blog for over a year.
A year people–that is too long!
I know from past experience that the best way to facilitate change is to just change and see if you can push it through.
So, here goes nothing …
I should say, here goes something (finally) and I should also say it’s NOT super-cool, but it is OK and it’s information and it’s me, unrehearsed and eager to change.
For your viewing pleasure … I present Scrap by Color episode one: GREEN
note: watch for my “lazy” eyelid — it’s so weird. It’s always been that way, don’t know why.
Here’s an overview:
Glass jar (I used an empty candle jar from Target) with a secure lid holds all the little, separate and random bits and pieces.
Ink, paint, glitter, colored pencils, pastel crayons, etc … are all stored in my color bins (ie, not together in an ink bin or drawer)
Monochromatic product stored in unopened packages
Random stuff (like shamrock stickers, zip ties from Home Depot, and decorative envelopes for notes and gift giving)
Mini-books and other little frames, etc… that can be used for projects and enhancing the cover of albums, etc..
To help me celebrate this Scrap by Color thing I’m doing for National Scrapbook Month, I’m picking random comments on my blog and sending people colorful goodie bags of product (more information on the importance of purging and sharing coming soon!)
Since today’s post is all about green and since I LOVE green, there will be two winners:
Toni, who commented on May 5th: I so wish there was a way I could do such a girls’ weekend. Guess I have to live vicariously through you. I just got done reading The Big Picture this week (loved it!!!) and enjoyed reading about you girls getting together there as well. Btw, I read a quote yesterday that I loved and thought you might enjoy as well.
I’ve decided that the stuff falling through the cracks is confetti and I’m having a party! ~Betsy Cañas Garmon
Amy S, who commented on May 6th: I hope you have a fabulous birthday, Stacy! And a great year. So sorry about the toe, that really is a bummer! I turned 38 this year (in April) and I am feeling, I think, somewhat like you: wanting to appreciate and savor, but also wanting to accomplish more somehow. Several items on your list struck me, number 47 in particular. Me too.
Hope your day is wonderful!
Thanks (as always) for you comments. Your GREEN goodies are here and waiting for your address!
