In a recent and very unnerving moment, it became clear that my purpose in life is to be an artist. (Specifically a writer, but I’m pretty good with a can of paint, too).
It’s NOT what I wanted to hear, struggling artists and all. However, it does explain my need for saving not so pretty things to refinish or repurpose later. Sure, it’s a bit hoarder-y. Fortunately, my massive desire to organize chaos helps maintain a reasonable balance.
Yet writing has always been my thing, my go-to. Not that I get all the rules. So…now I am committed (sorry, not in that way), to learning the rules and immersing myself in the Kidlit culture. Which is why you’ll find many posts and fantastic resources on or about authors & illustrators here.
If that’s not your thing, please check out Random Feats of Organization + Crafty Projects. Everything is created out of necessity. Take a peek at my Featured Image Background above (behind the Housewife Hair header). That’s my gift bag & tissue paper drawer!
After years of struggling with accumulated gift bags and all that ensue, I made use of an empty filing cabinet by organizing the heck out of all that is gifty and artsy.

All projects begin on a tight budget and most are completed successfully, without too much destruction. I’m a wing and a prayer kinda girl.
