Crafts: Picture Frame – Owl

19 Mar

I finally got the paint pens I wanted so now I can get back to making frames 😀 YAY!!

I am so excited to be working with these again, but after spending twenty minutes trying to get the lighting and focus right, I have decided that I am going to wait and start taking my pictures in natural light. They look so much better that way!!

I have a few more things to go through tomorrow in the storage then it will be a crafty day! Hoorayy!!

Love Always,

Daily Life: Goodbye Clutter!

19 Mar

Today I am keeping up with my spring cleaning “fever” and going through the storage. I think my favorite part of going through stuff is finding things that I can use around the house to keep myself organized or just for fun! Yes, I am supposed to be getting rid of everything but I always seem to find things to use that I never realized was tucked away 😀 It’s like thrift store shopping and finding some awesome things but even better because they are FREE!

I am also going to have to really push myself to get rid of a lot of stuff. I’m the kind of person who keeps something thinking I’ll use it later and 9 times out of 10 I end up using it.. but all those 10’s that never get used pile up 😛 My mom is going to help me today which is awesome because I am a hoarder and she is a chucker. She’s going to help me take a second look at something and ask me if I really need it instead of “hmm I could use this later .. maybe .. one day..” HAHA!

Hopefully through this whole process I start seeing more in a need now kind of mindset. I really think getting rid of the clutter in my life is going to give me more space to be creative and be a huge stress reliever! Plus I am a seriously thrifty shopper so if I do chuck something that I could have used later .. well I can always find it later for an awesome price but at least it was taking up space for the years I didn’t use it!

I can’t wait to show you all my awesome finds, but I also can’t wait to have some serious crafty space to get my one year plan easily organized and room for whatever else is to come out of it!

Love Always,

J
