Paletas!!!

Look what I found!  I have major plans for this little guy!  I’m in the process of removing stickers and making some repairs before I finalize my color palette.  I will be posting my progress as I go. I’m not sure what I will be selling out of this thing, but know that it will be used as a great marketing tool!

The last couple of days have been a little busy with catching up on school work for my boy, caring for 2 little ones and the excitement of the arrival of a brand new niece, Baby Teagan.

I have also been going through a major process of de-cluttering! It’s amazing how much stuff you can accumulate over the years! Although I’ve been in denial for quite sometime now, I am convinced that I am showing early signs of hoarding! Honestly! I have the tendency to hold on to everything, for many reasons. I might use it again someday, someone else could use it, I can make something else out of it (upcycling), I might fit into it again (I crack myself up), I could sell it, i’ll donate it (someday) and the list goes on. I’m at that point where I just want to get rid of everything and start all over again!

So, I’ve decided that before I allow myself to start any new projects, including the one above, I need to reclaim my space! I have many thoughts and ideas that I plan to take action this year and need some clarity!  I am an organized messy person, really!  I have clutter, but most of it is organized in nice piles!  Ha! Ha! Ha!  Does this sound like you too?  Well, that time is now for me!  This is my little contract to myself to:
1. Think twice about what I decide to keep or take a picture (it takes up less space).
2. Everything has a home.
3. If the task at hand takes less than 1 min, then complete it now rather than waiting until later (Which in most cases means never).
4. Don’t be afraid to let go.
Although this task is very overwhelming, finding a partner in crime might make it a little easier to make those hard decisions of letting go!  Mom, sister, best friend, someone you trust.  In my case my honey helped me.  Nothing like having your love next to you as you go through old pictures and letters from people of the past, yikes!  He has such a great sense of humor and made me laugh through the whole thing!  Still not done yet, but think I can see the light at the end of the tunnel!

Have a beautiful day!
