Tuesday Tips from Toni

3 Apr

My only tip for today is simple. If you insist on being neat and tidy, don’t let it rule your life. I like to find a happy medium. When I finally find the time and energy to clean or straighten up a room, (which is quite rare) I take a photo of the room after it is all neat and pristine. Then, I print it out, pin it up, and refer back to it for a couple years, to remind me how it once looked.

Exactness and neatness in moderation is a virtue, but carried to extremes narrows the mind.

My craft room, which is lovingly called my “crap room” by one and all, is always my biggest challenge. I am a self-confessed craft-a-holic, refusing to attend meetings or join a support group. I don’t throw anything out and I collect things that would make the TV show “Hoarders” blush with envy. But, I just spent a couple weeks straightening up afore mentioned craft room and took before and after pictures. Hope this will hold me for a couple more years, because I need to get painting and crafting. Messy-mess, here we come.

Before…

And after… Won’t be seeing it like this for much longer…

“You must carry a chaos inside you to give birth to a dancing star.”
― Nietzsche
I always carry chaos inside! It’s a good thing! Give it a try.
