Oh my friends... I'm making progress! I forgot to take a "before" but here's
the "after" of the first closet I tackled... I have two more to go!
I've already gotten rid of a boatload of stuff just from this closet and have
a nice box started for giveaways and to sell... yeah!
It's funny how the artist in me tends to move from project to project leaving
a trail of messes behind me but I also love and need a degree of order and
tidiness in order to be creative... and I know some of you are the same way...
so this is definitely feeling good.
And if you're looking for a creative way to organize little stuff I thought you
might like this... a repurposed over the door shoe organizer! I love mine...
it makes finding stuff soooo easy... and when you close the door it all
disappears! And you can buy them at the Dollar Store... what a sweet deal!
They're great for rhinestones...
and scissors and tools and supplies of all kinds... so helpful!
I'm taking a break to go to Michelle's today for our Arting Group... so much
fun... and then I'm on to the next area... and it may not look so bad to you
but the brightness in the lower left corner is hiding the immensity of the piles
and then there's the file cabinet drawers... oh my...
Thank You Lord for loving us... even in the midst of our clutter! And thank
You for showing me that just as it's important for me to clear out the clutter
of my closet... it's even more important for me to continually clear out the
clutter in my mind and heart... to throw out those thoughts and attitudes
that are hindering me from living more fully in the freedom of Your love
and grace. Give me the courage to examine the clutter in my mind and heart
and be willing and tenacious about throwing out anything that doesn't line up
with the truth of Your Word or the sweetness of Your Spirit. Amen.
