I desperately need to clean my studio – it’s currently in a state of chaos, mayhem, and disorganization, and NOT in a good way. I also need to spruce it up because my beloved Circle of girlfriends is coming over to play next weekend and I need to find all the goodies in there. (Hello girls!)
Here’s the before and after from when I did this last February, just after starting the blog.
Here’s what it looks like now:
Can we say “Too much stuff” boys and girls?
I’m going to try applying one of my Life Philosophies to this cleanup: Fix it, Love it, or Let it Go. So for each pile I get to (you know who I’m talking about, over there on that chair), I’ll be asking myself –
Can you Fix it? Does it need to be mended, glued, or patched? If the answer is NO, I can’t fix it, it needs to move on to the appropriate recycle, trash or burn pile – Let it Go. If I can fix it, move on to question 2:
Do you Love it? Sure it needs a little mending or altering, but do you love that skirt/pants/sweater/thing enough to do it? Does that fabric make your heart flutter? Do you really, truly love that pile of paper or box of beads?? What about the tub of ephemera? If the answer is No, Let it Go.
Fix it, Love it, or Let it Go.
I’ll show you how it all went when I’m done. = )
Have a fabulous weekend! If you don’t hear from me next week I’m probably stranded under a pile of stuff. Send in the cute firemen….
