At the beginning of the year, like most of us, I sat down and wrote out my goals for the future. One of the main ones was to get my act together with the de-clutter that seems to be growing by the minute.
We have a shed full, and trust me I mean full, of boxes of things from Mum & Dads. Most things I gave to the scouts and to charity shops – but some things, I thought might come in useful. And … yup I was right. Mum & Dad had hundreds of cd’s; records & cassette tapes – music was always on when I was little. Anyway, I thought that these boxes would be good for holding inks in my craft room – and they’re perfect.
I also have one with all my Promarkers in – I just coloured little dots in with the colours and put them at the end, and now I can see what I have at a glance.
I’m also a huge Filofax fan – yes I know I can keep my diary on my phone, but I think it’s just a stationery thing, but I love my Filofax. So with that thought in mind, and the fact that if I ever see a craft shop while I’m out and about, my bag would be with me. I decided to make a not of the colours of inks I have, so as not to buy duplicates.
I know I’m late to the party and I don’t have many mists, but I thought I could start keeping a record of these too.
So, it looks like I’m doing well with my goals; decluttering and getting organised .... fingers crossed it continues.
