Current mood: thankful

I am constantly battling the clutter sickness with my crafting. This seems to be very common amoung artists and crafters of every discipline. We are the collectors and heaven forbid that we get rid of that scrap of yarn or material 'cause we know we're goin' need it. Fortunately, or unfortunately as the case may be, I live with a minimilist. We are two extremes trying to keep our living space together. It's not to the point that we're going to be on a hording show on Oprah, but why take the chance?

This year, I have been ever vigilent on my end of the spectrum and have actually enjoyed donating more craft items to people who can't afford them as well as creating more for charity. My rule of thumb is that if something new comes in - than something old goes out. I admit it was a challenge at first, but slowly I got into the groove.

However, I did notice that this week I was blogging other places than my office (which is where my clutter is contained) so it's time to suck it up and do the work, as they say. I'm going to be shredding some paper after I finish blogging and reevaluting the yarn thang.
In the book,
Trust Your Vibes, by Sonia Choquette, the author recommends strongly that we eliminate clutter in our lives in order to use our sixth sense to the max. I took this as a direct hint from the powers that be that I need more work! It has recently been suggested that it can also help you loose weight and improve concentration, as well as elevate your mood.

So my crafty people, clean up your clutter, feel great, and have more energy for creating!

Here's to not seeing you on Oprah - at least for the hording episodes!
