Riigghht...it is a sure sign that you have a terrible procrastination problem when you give yourself a whole 2 weeks and vow to clean up your act, then wait until 2 nights before your deadline to even think about tackling it! I kept walking into the room with my main mess, then immediately remembering some terribly important TV show I wanted to watch, or dinner to cook, or bathroom to scrub (not)!
Thursday night I finally just took a deep breath and started....I decided to focus on the area off the master bedroom where the majority of my stash is. Once I got started, and into it, I actually enjoyed it. Here are some before and after shots.
|My new space!|
The big bonus of cleaning-up and reorganizing, aside from everything being all neat and orderly, is that you uncover cool things you forgot you had, or in my case, had been looking for and thought was lost forever!
|Buttons from my dear Mother's stash!|
|Fun flea market finds from my last trip to Lucketts with the girls!|
|Products of wonderful classes with Stephanie Lee and Richard Salley that I procrastinated on finishing!|
|Thought these were lost forever...6/20 enamel I bought LAST YEAR! and images from an art deco Opera posters calendar I planned to use in some mixed media.|
|Last, but not least...score! Thick copper wire I came across at the hardware store, steel wire, sterling square wire and a piece of thin sterling sheet. I completely forgot about this buried treasure!|
Now, the responsibility is mine to keep things this neat and tidy. So, how about you? Many of you said in your comments that your spaces also need a cleaning day! Were you able to accomplish it? If so, congratulations! If not, it's okay...I hope I have inspired you to think about it!
