I've got a hook and I'm not afraid to use it.

All these systems sound so much better than my traditional "things scribbled on a post it note in my purse" system.

As of Friday right after work, I'm off in the middle of nowhere camping for a week, so I won't be anywhere near the internet. Luckily I've packed a few crafty things to keep me busy  Cheesy

Hey, I use that system too! Post-its in the purse are the way to go. Sometimes I stick them to the inside of my cell phone so I can find them easily. Wink I swear my purse has a black hole at the bottom of it.

Ah, it's not just me  Grin

I have one of those wallets that folds in half and has many card slots. I generally stick the post it notes on the inside. You can attach one to each card! Does this get in the way of actually using the wallet? Definitely. As I said, it's not a good system...

My ideas are on a post-it too! I once started a little swap notebook I could carry around, but I lost it Cheesy

I have a medium-y one done and one small finished. Some things I ordered for something else arrived today, so I can get cracking on that on Monday. We have guests with kiddies this weekend so everything is going into hiding till they've gone Tongue

Im still stalking my partner, it was easy to figure out how to make an item but not easy to figure out what to make her, finally I made up my mind after having a chit chat with her yesterday!  So now I can get to crafting and hope she will like what I make her!  <3

I am taking a break from swaps for a while.  I am not accepting any personal swaps at this time until around Christmas time.  Sorry for the inconvenience.

I usually just start making stuff, when I finish the first couple of things, I usually glance at how much I'm supposed to make...
Any wonder I usually end up sending more?

My organization for this year is the best so far - I made my own day planner and ended up with the back of every piece of paper blank. I've been writing in calendars for years - the midwife knew I was ready to have DS#1 the day I forgot my calendar. I find that if it goes in there, I don't lose it easily.
My mom has a stack of little papers she's written notes on to put on her dashboard so she doesn't forget things. I also am guilty of writing on my hand. FYI  Sharpie will stay on your hand for 2 hours in the pool and still be legible!

Still 1/2 on one project and about 2/3 on another.  (earth and air)

Power is strength and the ability to see yourself through your own eyes and not through the eyes of another. It is being able to place a circle of power at your own feet and not take power from someone else's circle.

I was going to quote cat9's post it note system but Danni beat me to it!  I just have them stuck to everything in my purse!  I am excellent at making lists, I do it constantly ... but I never go back and look at the lists I make - so I keep making lists of the same things over and over  Tongue Somehow I manage to make it through life so I guess it works for me -  Wink

I forgot to add ...

I have 100% of a good idea worked out in my head!  Now if I could just pry myself away from Craftster for awhile I might actually be able to accomplish something today ...

I have a little quarter-sheet-of-paper sized notebook with those little opening rings that I carry around all over.  I use it for work and for crafts and for brainstorming and sketching.  Too bad my mechanical pencil is out of lead!  Sad  (I do work stuff in pen.  I do personal stuff in pencil.  Wink And I've trained myself never to forget that little notebook!  But it took a while.  It also doesn't help that I don't carry a purse, because if I do, I leave it behind everywhere.  Wink )
