Ever feel like you just have too much STUFF?? I look around sometimes and just wonder "where did it all come from?" I am not a cluttered person at all and really, our house stays fairly in order because of that. But looking in the garage, the closets, the drawers....that drives me nuts. So I'm on a mission. I'm going to get rid of all of this excess that is cluttering our home and my mind. We don't need it, don't use it...so why hang on to it? I started yesterday with the master bedroom closet. I threw out 5 grocery bags of *junk* and took 2 bags of shoes and clothes to Goodwill. Ahh, that felt SO GOOD! And the closet looks great! I'm going to take my time and go thru every room in the house, ending in the garage. I'm only going to hang on to things that are useful or especially sentimental. Will probably have a big Spring garage sale, too. I'm not in a hurry, though. I'll get more satisfaction out of it if it's something I can do slowly and not something that constantly nags at me. Anyone want to join me?
If you've read Wendi Speciale's blog today, you know that they have made the decision to go strictly wholesale with the WSD stamps. I respect Wendi and her business and know that God has wonderful things in store for them. I have made the prayerful decision to step down as a design team member/muse, though. I feel like I need to do something regular instead of freelance, so I will see what God has planned for me there. I know that there is something I will be doing in the world of "organization." Just not sure what that is yet. My March CK feature will hopefully move that along for me! :)
My Chatterbox Make It Meaningful album is coming along well. It's difficult at times because of the subject matter, but I know that the finished product will be well worth every tear shed. The deadline is February 28th, so I need to get it done!
Like my new banner?? I just pieced it together digitally, scans and photos. It was fun! (all of the paper is Chatterbox Nook)
Thanks for reading, today! :)
