~ It's A Beginning


Beyond this little plate with the beautiful antique keys, is a really big mess! I took everything out of two bedrooms and now I'm switching them somewhat. In the meantime, there is a huge mess in the living room. It was the only room that was still empty enough to accommodate such a really insane amount of stuff. One thing about people who love creating is that it takes a lot of eggs to make those omelets, or a lot of junk sometimes to make arty things.

I have a little trick I play on myself and that is asking myself what if I were moving, in a very short time! Then try to remember that with everything I touch. Asking do you need to take that with you? Why???? Does this work, a little bit, I hope.

The old rule if you haven't used it in 6 months, then you don't need it? That does not apply to art supplies. You might have something for 10 years and then it is suddenly exactly what you need to complete a project. Excuses....

So it's a beginning. The beginning of a huge mess that is leading me to organize and downsize to less. Less, less, less. It's a beginning.


Thanks so much for coming by

the kitchen courtyard garden.
Happy Weekend!
See Y'All Soon~

  1. Good luck with that, Donna! I have a few areas I need to do that to ~ my attic and my craft closet! I think I'll start with the smaller of the two once I stop procrastinating.

  2. I'm with you on that Donna! I just took everything out of the right side of my "cubby cupboard"--and it's all over my bed! Got to figure out what's going back inside before bedtime!

    Keep at it!
