Let the decluttering begin!
Today I started on the path o getting rid of half my things. I just cleared out my dresser in the bedroom, started washing and folding all the clothes, and getting rid of anything I don’t wear anymore. Well, except for a couple t-shirts I stuck aside because I love the design on the front, but they don’t fit. That will be a new blanket soon.
Then I cleaned the living room. I threw away another garbage can filled with random things I haven’t seen in years.
After finishing with the clothing I’ll have to start on my crafting goods. Paints, clay, beads, findings, fabric, and so many other things. I need to pear down to just what I will actually use, not what I might use some day. And considering the last few years and how little crafting I’ve done, that’s a lot.
On the other hand, I think I’ll be setting aside at least one day a week just to do crafting. I love paintings, beading, sewing, and various other crafts. And I’ve been doing more of them lately. I just bought a button maker, and I have sticker sheets and magnet sheets so I will be making all of those with the little drawings I’ve been doing. I think I’m going to fill up my etsy shop again, and maybe sell a few.
It will be a while before I actually make money from writing fiction. Well, I should say money enough to live off. Right now I do make some money, but it is just enough to pay for editing the next book. So I thought getting into etsy again might help pay for the editing too.
Anyway, my five minutes are up now.
