Clear that Clutter, Girl!

As I sat organizing my fabrics and notions this morning, I came to realize that I am the crazy bag lady of fabric collecting. I have more materials to work with than I really do need at this stage of the game... but you know what? Collecting makes me happy and I have just come to this realization. I like to go to the fabric store and score a good deal. I love to get those rad vintage buttons at the consignment shop. If it's cool and in my price range, it's mine!

This brings me to my current task at hand... Organizing it all. Sitting in my variations on yoga stances, I am finding myself getting creative juices flowing just from the sheer act of clearing my clutter. Given the time to myself ( yes, chores can sometimes be "me time"), I am given the opportunity to ponder creative direction and just meditate on my goals (past organizing that is). Today, if you asked me what I recommended for peace of mind? I'd say "Clean out a drawer".

OM is a weekly meet up that promotes living in the moment. Whether funny, sad, ridiculous, or banal, actively looking for and sharing these moments will promote balance in our lives. 


  1. I've had "clean craft" room on my to-do list for like three weeks now. It's such a mess! And I totally agree with you....there's something about drawers and baskets full of gorgeous, beautiful, soft yarn that just makes me happy and peaceful. And by 'peaceful' I mean an "i-have-so-much-yarn-i-can't-wait-to-make-amazing-things", excited kind of peaceful. :)

  2. Oh, I can so relate! I have loads of fabric and recently organized them (and gave some away). It was just the tip of my stash iceberg. I often find cleaning and organizing, particularly my studio/office, very therapeutic. As a matter of fact, I need a major therapy session in the next few days!

    Happy 2011!
