There are many things I struggle with in life but one that annoys me immensely is my propensity to hoard, resulting in clutter. The photos below are of our study/craft/music/junk room and man oh man, it sure is time to get at least some of it sorted.
What you see below is all manner of craft stuff from buttons, beads, jewellery making gear, fabrics, stationary, yarn, thread, ribbons, card making supplies, including stamps, papers, card, ink, punches etc. I also have another cupboard with more fabric, patterns, Christmas decorations, painting supplies, photographs, frames, Christmas paper, wrapping paper, sewing machine, threads, zippers, haberdashery and more. So you see, too much stuff and not enough room. I have made some attempt in the past to organise things in tubs and containers, but there is much to be done as you can see.
Yesterday I had a bit of a purge, threw some rubbish out, rearranged stuff, tidied up, put the beanbag beans in Miss G.'s beanbag. The catalyst for this tidy up was giving our niece the drum kit. She has drum lessons and needed a kit to practice on, hubby doesn't play anymore, so win win all round.
It hardly looks like I've been in here but let me assure you I have. And it's a good feeling to finally be able to see some of the floor, see some more light and well it just looks a bit better.
Such a long way to go, sigh, but the one positive thing about having all this stuff is if anyone wants make something at short notice, I can usually provide it for them. :)
It's a big thing to put your untidy side out there. Is anyone else attempting to have a bit of a New Years purge?
Have a great day,
