via Daily Prompt: Imaginary
There once was a little girl named Neva who had an imaginary friend named Tim. You see, Neva was an only child and she really wanted a brother. Unfortunately, her parents were not able to have any more children. Neva and Tim played together every day. He kept her company when she was lonely.
One day Tim told Neva he was moving away and they couldn’t play anymore. Neva was mad at Tim for having to leave but she forgave him. Then one day, her mommy and daddy told her they were moving to a bigger house in the country. When mommy asked about Tim, Neva said Tim moved away.
Mommy gave her a hug and told her it was okay and that friends sometimes move and that she would make new friends. When they moved to the new house Neva never saw Tim again but she talked about him sometimes. When Neva went to school she made new friends and soon Tim was forgotten.

Has your child ever had an imaginary friend? How long before they outgrew them?
Have you ever had so many ideas you don’t know where to start?
Ideas come from everywhere when your a crafter. Some ideas come because you have a need or you have kids your keeping busy but at the end of the day we crafters just have a want/need to create something fun and new. One of the problem we face is that there are so many idea sources out there. Pinterest, Facebook, other crafters, conversations with family and friends, flipping through a magazine, or your watching a home improvement show. You hit overload and want to do everything; which is why you have 87 boards on Pinterest…LOL
What happens when you decide on your new projects? You go out and purchase supplies and those supplies sit there because another fabulous idea pops in your head and you go get more supplies. What’s a crafter to do?!
Sometimes you just need to step away, clear your head and then go back, look at your pile and sort through it and decide what needs to get done first. During craft show season is the worst….you want to make and take so many things but what will consumers buy? What season are you in, and what do you do first?
I think I need to take a page from my daughters book and start making a to do list; her to do list is more of a bullet journal that she decided she wanted to make to help get herself organized but I don’t see that as helpful for myself. I think I need to start working on those things I have started first and then move onto the projects I bought all those supplies for (which is alot…lol).
I’d love to hear about your struggles with crafting organization and tips on how you keep yourself on track. What do you do during craft show season to keep yourself organized and on track?
