Merry Meet friends! Today the sun came out and the skies cleared up and the snow is shimmering..it’s just a beautiful day but very very cold! Tonight I should be able to finally see the Wolf Moon just in time before she starts waning. I’m so glad! I could really use the connection and seeing her makes it so much better! 🙂
My daughter Kate writes two blogs..both of which are linked to my blog. Just Chasing Moonbeams is her witchy blog, Living the Vintage Life is her non-witchy blog…you know……muggle friendly! 🙂 On her Vintage Life she has started a wonderful idea….of organizing your home in 14 days. Here is the link so you can read about it………
I have decided to participate..basically you clean out drawers, cupboards, closets, bookshelves ..whatever needs done. You take before pics of your daily project..then pitch what needs to be pitched, give away what you don’t want, and organize what you keep. You should pick one closet, a couple of drawers or a cupboard or two each day. Then take an after picture to show how great it looks! I love this idea…makes me look forward to seeing the great results. AND…it helps me to get ready for Imbolc! Imbolc is all about cleaning and getting rid of the old junky stuff! Be brutal in what you get rid of…if it isn’t useful anymore, or you haven’t used it or worn it in a year..its time for it to go!!
So today I decided to clean out the 3 drawers in my foyer dresser. Now this took me all of 15 minutes…I pulled a trash can right up to me, pulled out the sweeper to sweep out the crumbs and got busy. Here are the before and afters for each drawer……
Looks great doesnt’ it?? I decided that as that had gone so fast I would do one more quick thing…right around the corner, a cupboard that was a real mess..had everything from river rocks to soap making supplies…time to clean it up!
There….much better! I need to get a small plastic basket to put the oils for the soap making supplies into…and a long flat basket to put my taper candles in…but otherwise, I’m happy with my work. I took me about 20 minutes in all…easy peasy. Humm ..wonder what to do tomorrow?? I’ll be back and continue to shoe my progress!
If you want to follow along, feel free. Take your own pics and past them into a spiral notebook or post them on your corkboard or refrigerator. It’ll inspire you to keep going! Happy Cleaning!
*I apologize for the small pics….but the bigger ones didnt’ fit on the page! LOL Get out your magnifying glass! 🙂
