De-cluttering almost done

A week of still coughing, this cold is hanging around still hopefully only 1 week to go.

Been de-cluttering like mad as fed up with it now, we plan to go to Farnham next week and want to drop off boxes to the RSPCA shop. This has been the kick I needed top restart my efforts, amazing what you can get done when you put your mind to it. Only about 4 mores sections plus my books to go, then I know what I am keeping just need to make sure all boxes labelled and in their right places.

Will be so glad when done, the work room has been sorted just needs to be placed correctly, then we may start on the large loft at the top of the house. Did clear some last year but have an 8ft x 2ft shelf still to do. This is mainly Lee's stuff and he needs to make some hard decisions.

I cannot believe how much 'stuff' we accumulate over the years, could have opened a shop and stocked for a month at least. Have found though that the space is clearing my creative brain and helping me focus on what I want to make next. Now I can find things!!!!!

Made this card a few weeks back but could not show you until after the Birthday date, just in case the lady concerned reads my blog. Oriental styling:

  1. I like the Chinese lanterns. Very pretty. Good for you for having a clear out - it is something I am very bad at.

  2. Such a pretty card.
    Good luck with the rest of the de-cluttering!

  3. Sounds like you are making amazing progress, particularly impressive if you've not been feeling 100%. I'm so pleased to hear you are feeling like it's a boost to your creativity. I didn't realise you are near Farnham that's where I was the other week when I was stitching whilst waiting for my lad at his uni interview, I had a quick walk round too, it's very pretty.

  4. Keep going Caroline, you're almost there! The card is super pretty, love the Japanese theme :D #handmademonday
