Shopping your own house...I recommend it!

Sorry, this won't be a pretty post, just a practical one.....we just put Christmas to bed and the house is getting in order, slowly but surely.

And as I look around, like many of you this time of year I find that I like the "less is more" pared down look. So I'm going through my rooms looking for items that I can live without. Now don't get me wrong, these aren't exactly junk! After all, I loved them enough to buy them once, right?

But after awhile it's time to let things go and get organized, and I'm so at that point right now.

And most of all I'm most excited to dig deep into my studio and really clean that out as well so that I can start creating again....it's been way too long.

How about you? Have you been organizing and cleaning too? Any good online creative classes on your horizon to keep those juices flowing? I've contemplated a few of them but haven't made any commitments yet...who knows...maybe tomorrow?

Hi Gail! I need to do the same thing. My house is too full of stuff I just don't need! I'll have to keep an eye on your Etsy shop so I don't miss any of the goodies you're parting with!

Oh yes, I go through the annual January "purge" as well. Out with the old, make room for the new!

All I can say is, I'd love to be visiting you when you decided to clear out!! My studio closet is next on my hit list...destash in store.

I am purging household stuff, not so much art related..lol! Actually I seek more of those, in need of crinkled seam binding/ribbon. That is my nest purchase.
I am taking LayerLove 2.0, a painting class. I have watched 3 videos so far, practice starts today after a trip for some BIG paint brushes.

I have a house just a couple of blocks down....I could send in search and rescue but you could come in and we could have the sale of sales! You've done so well, i'm happy for you,
