Because I work in an academic setting, this is the time of year that I get to splurge a little on my most favourite of stationary items - a new diary. Oh, but there is something marvellous about a new diary - the blank pages waiting to be filled up with dates and deadlines. That feeling of a 'new beginning'.
Participating in the Organisation Celebration last weekend - and reading through some of her amazing articles about organising each and every part of your life - made me realise that, I really could do with spending a little more time organising. It only makes sense. A little more time organising, a little less time worrying about how disorganised I am!
Following some of Jennifer's tips, I've already started filling my diary with deadlines for my design team and magazine submissions - which should help me to keep on top of my projects. I'll also be adding ideas for the blog, because after taking an extended blogging break at the beginning of the year, I've really been struggling to blog regularly, despite my best intentions. It doesn't help that I've been away from home a lot recently.
But, I have a whole weekend at home and, after the new inspiration kit for the Counterfeit Kit Club was revealed last week, I have a diary entry for this weekend ready and waiting for me to tick it off my to do list!
