Bursting at the seams

My head, that is. I'm having an overflowing kind of a day. The kind where there's a million things to do and I have a hard time prioritizing.

I've had this problem for as long as I remember. In my working life, however, I've spent years to learn how to deal with it and I've become fairly good at it. It's hard to use those same methods in my personal life, but I think it's just a question of getting used to it.

I have plenty of ideas for upcoming projects, I have a few custom orders to fill, I'm designing two different invitation suites and to top it all off, I am thinking about home decor. A lot. Oh! And I've been experimenting with some new recipes too.

Do you get these kind of days? How do you deal with it?


  1. When I get days like this, I set up work stations on the dining room table. I make a list of things I want to do, set up my supplies, and then work on one thing at a time while listening to music. Sometimes I'll let something dry and work on something else, or just multitask, but mostly I just work with the stations. That helps the most, just organizing everything!

    1. I have to agree with you, that's how I organize things in my working life; take stock of what needs to happen, make sure you have all the tools you need and then get cracking. I just always struggle with that in my personal life...

      The one thing that usually works for me is to do something small first. If things get overwhelming, pick one small task to get the gears turning.
