It started before my best pal came over to stay. My current craft room is in the living room which also acts as the guest room too as we have a sofa bed there. In case you're wondering, we don't hang out in the living room, never have and probably never will! We hang out in the kitchen and after dinner, we go straight upstairs. It's probably the format of the house as the living room is located in a very awkward part of the house which we hardly venture there! Hence, perfect for guests!
I cleared craft area. I threw out tons of stuff I don't need and re-arrange the individual drawers to suit my crafting needs. So now, all my punches are in one drawer, stamping stuff in another, embellishments in another etc! I used to used the 3rd bedroom as my craft room before but my wee one wanted his own bedroom so hubby took my stuff out, re-configured the living room so that I could have a dedicated corner instead. Didn't bother me as I don't physically scrap anymore although I still need a little space for cards (I still do cards as I loathe to buy them. Besides, it more fun doing it). I've still have not gotten rid of my physical stash and I think it's time as I've not touched them for 2 years now. If I didn't need them in the last two years, I probably don't need them in the future!
After coming back from the holidays, I cleared my bedroom. Found storage spaces for my handbags and cleared a bunch of rubbish under the bed. The weekend saw me extending it to the cupboard in the landing upstairs. I had no space for extra duvet and pillows so I sent hubby to Argos to get vacuum bags. Cleared out clothes that I've not touched for years & threw out more rubbish! Funny how 13 years ago, hubby and I moved into the house with hardly any belongings and now we have literally filled the house up!
I even tackled one of the boys' room. Found out what the dog has been doing there... chewing up books!!! Even chewed up the wire to a broken lighting on the wall. Sigh! Cleared the mess and vacuumed up.
My next job is to tackle the enormous amount of clothes we have in this house. The problem of being a hoarder is the inability to let go but I need to be firm. I'm fast running out of wardrobe space and I just need to chuck out clothes that is no longer needed.
Looks like this month will be dedicated to spring clean. There's so much to do!!! TTFN!
