Compartmentalizing My Life

Organizational skills do not come naturally to me. In fact, being slovenly and chaotic comes VERY naturally to me - it's so much more fun to be creating than cleaning! But even though being organized isn't my forte, I do have a strong desire to be organized and I have made an effort to work at it throughout my life. Being organized helps me to feel peaceful and in control of my craziness.

A few months ago, I took apart my 75% of the closet and organized it according to color, and within colors - short sleeves to long. It's felt so GOOD! I sent about half of all that mess to the thrift store and have really enjoyed how easy it is to keep organized. Every time I look in there, I smile.

And my hubby now knows where to hang my things as he's folding and putting away the laundry!

So! On that note, I've been so busy with photography lately that I finally decided to take the plunge and get an official photography website. I've also decided to add a photography blog that is separate from this, my personal blog.

So, from now on, photo client sneak peaks will be on my photography blog, and only personal and family stuff will be on this one. I don't know exactly how well it will work, but I'm going to give it a try.

Both the new site and my new photo blog are still under construction, but here are the links if you want to check them out.

So drop a comment and let me know what you think. And wish me luck in my efforts to be organized - it's always an uphill battle around here.

I suffer from your same affliction, loving the IDEA of being organized, yet somehow never quite achieving or maintaining it.

I love the new photo blog. New website is great too; however, I have a hard time waiting for the gallery pics to load, and then the slideshow to run. I'd prefer an easier to browse gallery, like with thumbnails or something. Just my 2 cents... :)
