Felicia's Notebook, Taking Back Friday

“Back to School” for Fibre Artists

Organizing yarn stash on the Taking Back Friday vlog

Can you believe it’s September already?! My kids are going back to school next week and it’s going to be the start of new routines and new schedules. Our school year is very, very full and it just feels like running a marathon. In order to do it well, without having a meltdown every day, I need to get really set and organized. And so this month has been about resetting my physical, digital, and mental spaces in preparation for the upcoming school year. September is a good time to stop, clear the decks, and restart with a mindset towards learning new things.

I would love to hear from you… if you have a system for avoiding overwhelm when it comes to making things and living a creative life, let me know in the comments!

    This is so helpful Felicia and your visual boxes make a LOT of sense! A visual reminder and focus! And I also appreciate the thoughts of “for now” all the others can be put away and it’s ok. I really feel September is the start of our year and an exciting time!
    The best thing I had for my girl was a stack of drawers for her creative center. As she grew and changed the content in the drawers changed but she knew what was where and could move it around but it was contained!

      Thanks Suzie!! Yes, September is the start of the new year for us too. And while the kids are doing all their activities and learning, it gets me excited to learn too. The kids have had a “craft cart” since the pandemic and just yesterday they decided to make a glue and glitter “thing” hahahah what am I going to do with their finished work?!? I’m running out of wall space lol.
