|THIS WILL BE THE YEAR!!|
Monday, January 2, 2012
THIS will be the year that I get all the excess crap out of my sewing room and have a REAL place to create, dream, sew, sing...what ever I choose to do!!
Okay...I have now made my resolution public. Lets hope that help keeps me motivated!
Just because I haven't posted lately, does not mean I have been slacking on the decluttering. Every weekend for about the last six weeks, I have tackled a different area of my home (which ever one happened to be buggin' me most at the moment) and had a box of no-longer-useful-to-me stuff for my husband to take to the thrift store. I think this year, I am going to estimate how many items are in each box load and keep a tally.
And, I have a family room again!! My youngest help me box up all the
crap treasures in this room in a mad dash-n-stash before Christmas. Although, that is a decluttering tip, which should be a choice of last resort, I was just not making any progress on my living room with this excess stuff taking up space. Unfortunately, I think my camera battery charger is a victim of this stashing effort and now I have to dig through bins to find it. So, no new pics until I find it!!
Additionally, and I KNOW there are a number of you out there that will be truly amazed by this disclosure...but I haven't bought any quilting fabric for over three months. Yes. Over 90 days. And although I have admired all the pretty fabrics on other's blogs, I am on a quest to not bring more into my home until I can manage what I have. Two things have led me to this quest. The first is figuring out what the heck to do with all the bins of fabric I already have!! 2nd? Poverty. You know, it's funny, but when you don't have any money, there seems to be less opportunities to buy fabric!
Here are a few Snickers to get you through the week!
Enjoy your week!! I am off to do some more decluttering. I want 2012 to be the year I becoming a Sewing Queen!!
Ta-ta for now!
