My Konmari Decluttering Journey


Hello Friends!

No, I haven't fallen off the planet in case you are wondering.LOL

I've needed some personal and family time.  But before I get back into the swing of things...videos and tutorials and such...

It has come to my attention that my craft room/office has been playing a huge part in all the anxiety I've been feeling.  Really, I'm like a kid with too many toys.  I'm so overwhelmed that I don't know where to begin, that I have lost interest and inspiration, mojo, if you will. So like that kid...I just play with the box.  In my case the box being binge watching The Crown. I know! Right?

So...
after hearing so much about the Konmari method of decluttering,  I decided to check it out.
The basic principal is to hold or touch everything and ask yourself,
"Does this spark joy?" and "Will I use this?"

It's harder than you think...
They are craft supplies...of course I love it all!  But realistically, I don't use 1/2 of it.

So when I say it's a "journey"..it truly is.

Here's a few pics..
Warning...it's a hot mess!


This is what I've managed to purge so far.  The paper bin and bag are scraps of paper that are useless, so they will be recycled.  The rest of it will be donated or given to my friends.  I may do a blog candy with some of the stuff that has never been used.

More Embellishments & my desk!  

Ok....
Now for some good news!

I have a brand new Granddaughter!  This past weekend was my annual scrapbooking weekend, so I started on her book:
(It was also good to get away from my mess!)



I have to say that by going through everything, I'm starting to feel more inspired!

My Goal is to have my room completed by the end of this weekend!  So hopefully I will have a nice clean and organized room to show you on Monday!
