Hibernation Nearly Complete!

Some of you may know that I've been trudging through a divorce, and that is finally complete. I am back to the business of living again, and starting to feel much more like myself. The old creative bug is beginning to bite and I'm listening, rather than swatting it away - as I have been for a while now. . . like maybe a year? (Oh, it's painful to even think about that.) ANYWAY. . .
My goal this week/weekend is to get my craft and sewing area back into a state where I'd be ABLE  to sit down and work on things. I have decluttered and weeded through my fabric stash. That alone was a HUGE task. No matter how hard I try I am sure I WON'T be able to do the same thing with my paper stash, but no matter. I will find better ways to organize everything and it will turn out wonderfully well. I think I will (gasp) let go of some back issues of magazines. I am also going to give to goodwill any tool that doesn't work EXACTLY as I had hoped, like the paper cutter I got for free which doesn't make a perfectly clean cut. Gone. And. . . in this way, I hope to be able to get things into MUCH better shape, ready for some creative Heydays! Hallelujah! I've already got quite a few sewing projects lined up, and I'm excited for those. I need to start 'organizing' some future scrapbook projects the way I organize sewing projects, getting together the photos, papers and embellishments that I plan to use. It helps me to organize my brain with sewing, so why not scrapbooking?

And she's Off. . . .
