As part of my jewelry making I like to feature copper that was reclaimed from my house…but lately I have been so focused on developing my jewelry business and growing it to the next level that I have neglected my home. With 2 young boys and a husband, it has been all I can do to keep up with the daily necessities of laundry, shopping, cooking, cuddling and the light cleaning to keep chaos under control.
For those of you who know me, I am not a clutter person, I guess that is one reason why my jewelry designs are often not very fussy. It is a true reflection of who I am. Heck, I can’t concentrate if I have more on my desk than my 5 main item groupings; computer / mouse, light, paper / pen, cup of tea, and item I am working on. Yes I know a little anal, but it keeps me focused and more importantly relaxed.
Well I have been feeling quite overwhelmed and directionless lately and I realized it was because the clutter bug has snuck into my home. It happens so very fast. So I decided to begin to tackle it. I know from experience that if I don’t define segmented areas to focus on directly I get overwhelmed with the scope of the entire project. So I decided I wanted to focus on my bedroom. My thought is that if I have a clutter free space to begin and end my days I will be a much more peaceful person.
Of course I didn’t take before photos. It didn't even occur to me that the transformation would be as dramatic as it was. But I do have one photo to share with you, the mountain of trash and Goodwill donations I eliminated from my room! WOW…I had no clue I had so much stuff squirrelled in there. So I will make my way thru all of the rooms in my house to see how much stuff I can eliminate from my life that I do not need and the stuff I do not want.
