Spring Cleaning. Declutter!

We are well into the spring season and summer is knocking at our door!

I’ve recently returned from my WordLove tour and since I’ve been back have been on a cleansing rampage. I want to simplify everything! For me to stay inspired and energized, I need to constantly change up my studio space and design it in a way that accommodates for new goals to be achieved. I felt like I couldn’t achieve any goals until I decluttered.

SO! I spent all last week redesigning my space, getting rid of tons o’ stuff that was clogging up my space and mind and keeping the flow from well… flowing!


There were boxes of objects for ideas that were not being done, piles of fabric in bags for future ideas… and you know what? I just packed it all up and donated it. These are old ideas and projects that I’m just not into anymore. I kept looking at the bags and boxes, thinking to myself, “One day I will be inspired to do that..” but really, it was another task on my to do list that no longer served me.

Leo Baubauta, author of The Power of Less, says “ Focus on only the essential, eliminate the rest, and allow yourself to get into that beautiful state known as “flow”.

I felt guilty about not pursuing these ideas. But then I realized. STOP! Why feel guilty over not feeling inspired about something? Getting rid of these things has left me feeling like I have a fresh slate to be inspired with. And dangit! It feels GOOOOOD!

DECLUTTER! Start fresh!  Do it GUILT FREE!
