Clutter

Last night I was going through piles of papers and books when I came across a forgotten book on de-cluttering. So I sat down for a moment and started to read....then it hit me: Why the hey was I reading a book on something I knew how to do already? It was like watching an aerobics class on TV while telling yourself you'll exercise tomorrow.

So I got up and cleared my work space. In the middle of the night. Once that area was done, I stopped. There are other piles here and there which I will be tackling later today.

  2. I had to laugh at this....I talked about clutter today on my blog! I am the Queen of Clutter and if my workspace was ever that neat and tidy I would be in heaven! Maybe I should clean it in the middle of the night like you did....then maybe it would stay clean until morning!!

  3. This is a chore that needs doing in my studio(which is the spare bedroom in our wee house). It's become such a mass of this and that...I stand in the doorway and it seems so daunting..but it MUST be done. Your space looks wonderfully neat and tidy and ready for more fab creations!

  4. You and me both - I was just arranging/rearranging drawers of DVDs and CDs. And earlier I rearranged things in the kitchen trying to create more room.

  7. Go Colette! You have done so well to declutter so much space.

    I got narky with myself over the weekend as I kept on tripping over stuff in my lounge room/ creative room. Need to take a leaf (or several leaves) out of your book!
