It's 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!


  1. Here's wishing you luck on becoming the 2012 Quilting Queen! Keep up the progress and soon you'll be using up your fabric!

  2. Great goals....I have been slacking on blogging too, trying to get back at it now. Glad you are still decluttering.

  3. Go Deb, Go Deb! I know you can do it :)!! And, way to go on the decluttering and the not buying fabric - I so need to do that, too! And, thanks for the funnies - love them! Wishing you all the best in the New Year!
