Crafty inconsequential randomness in all its glory
Saturday, March 6, 2010
I know there has not been too many posts about my New Years "Theme" of organization. Well, because there hasn't been a lot of organization around ye old household lately. What can I tell 'ya?
But I did achieve a small organizational milestone recently - the recipe books. I don't know if you're like me and a sucker for every yummy sounding recipe that you come across. I pull out recipes from magazines, cut them from the newspaper, print them from the internet, photocopy them from books....you can see where I am going here. I have a pile of random recipes, many of which I frequently use, floating around in a beat-up manila folder in our recipe book cabinet. (Yes, I have many recipe books too!)
This folder was unwieldy and unorganized (about 4 inches high), and I always lost the recipe I needed at that moment, only to find it the next time I was looking for a different recipe. I had already started a binder of recipes but it was all out of place and not updated. I also had a pack of clear plastic protectors and another big binder ready to go. So I got busy and for several hours - yes hours - I clipped recipes, sorted, organized, spent precious time dreaming about all the food I was looking at...oh yeah and finally got the loose recipes organized!!!
A small victory, I know. But important to me anyway. Of course now I'm hungry.
Wife to a VERY understanding man (even if he does roll his eyes and duck back into his garage way too much); mother to three maniacs,crafter, professional volunteer, crazed maniac in her own right...yep, that about covers it for now.
It's about crafts, family, gardening, life....really whatever the heck I want to talk about. I am wordy, messy, opinionated, disorganized, lacking in focus, manic, craft obsessed...and pretty much this all spills out on the pages of this blog. You've been warned!
