Mail was good to me last week.
Two hand-made cards arrived to celebrate my birthday - the one in front from our very own Karen. And the package from my sister contained a book from my Amazon wish list
|along with a very sweet note!|
Thanks to the Memorial Day holiday falling just right this year, I actually had my birthday off. Sarah gave me the gift of her time and came over to help me start cleaning my craft room. It's a big job and is going to take a lot more time than we had together, but a solid start was made that resulted in this:
Yes, we "found" my craft table under piles of stuff! It is now set up and ready for me to play. Which will be my goal before the week is out. To actually go play. And then clean up the mess when I am done so it will be ready to play the next opportunity I get!
For those of you who have done serious craft space purging and decluttering... how do you decide what stays and what goes? I can be ruthless with my clothing, jewelry, kitchen stuff... but when it comes to my craft supplies I freeze. Everything has multiple potential uses. I can't get rid of anything. (Says the woman who before Monday had FOUR Fiskars 12" trimmers! I did thin that down to two - gave one to Sarah and put one in the donate pile). But I don't have room to store it all which is why so much ends up in residence on my table and then I have no space to play and create. I seriously need an intervention! Any thoughts????
