I used to consider myself a bit of a neat freak, but a few years back I decided that life was too much fun and I got over that. My home is tidy and fairly organized, but my workspace was getting really chaotic and I was finding it hard to focus. My inside beading area was really to blame because it is sooo time consuming to clean up all that little stuff and I’d rather be creating. The garage metal working area wasn’t much better. Well, enough was enough and I cleaned it all up while enjoying a glass of wine to help ease the stress. By the end of that purging session, I closed my eyes and just chucked the bead board and leftover tidbits…. straight into the trash can. I think the wine helped with that. Wow, that felt great! I have vowed to never let it get that bad again…. we’ll see, but I have renewed my focus and feel like I really accomplished something. I look forward to sitting down and knowing where stuff is and having room to create! Spring cleaning can sometimes be a good thing.
