Camp Declutter: Sewing Supplies

I’ve been keeping up with my weekly #CAMPdeclutter projects where I make small areas tidier and more organized. I call it #cullandmakepretty. I’ve been lax in sharing. This month, I have been working on my kitchen drawers, they aren’t but so exciting. Now, don’t get me wrong, I’m excited every time I open up a drawer. Yesterday I started reorganizing my studio. The pegboards in the room were bumming me out; they were just big blobs of clutter. Since I don’t sew for a living anymore, I don’t need all the trim out on display. So, I moved my pegboards into the storage closet that is beside the studio. I plan to use the pegboards for general DIY projects, sewing items and small tools will soon be organized and easy to get too. Now I just have to find a nice place for these suitcases. Aren’t they better than ugly Rubbermaid bins? These could look super cute stacked up in the corner of any room in the house. More soon! Save

CAMP declutter: Bookcase Styling

I can’t believe that we are 10 weeks into 2017, how can that be? I am very excited to share with you this week’s CAMP declutter project, it’s a big one! Last week, I started cleaning up the far left corner of my foyer that often becomes a dumping ground. After I put all my envelopes and mail supplies into the old yellow box, I got busy cleaning up the bookcases.     I spent a day or two purging books and rearranging them, they had been loosely organized by color, and now they are organized by subject matter. I’ve culled these shelves about 5 times in the last 12 months, each time I get rid of a little more. A year ago, I started sorting out all the homeschool books from years past. Unfortunately, I added other books and board games, keeping the shelves jammed full. Why were there so many books on the shelves? Like I said, I had to do that a few times, slowly getting rid or storing sentimental books. As …

CAMP declutter: Catching Up

I haven’t forgotten my 2017 challenge, CAMP declutter, I’ve just fallen behind in showing my progress. Week 6: Super Simple Tea Station I tidied up this part of the kitchen counter twice in February. I replaced the chrome canisters with a few mismatched Bell Jars, which was nice, but not great. So I grabbed up 3 Fido Jars at the Crate and Barrel when I was in Arlington. We don’t have a lot of counter space, so we just keep the tea out and ready. The kids and I drink tea a few times a day, so it get’s the honor countertop time. Don only drinks coffee (at home) on the weekends, so he has a coffee tray that lives on top of the fridge. I’ll trick out his coffee tray soon. Week 7: Aidan’s Mess and a new chair UG! I can’t tell you how happy that I’ve been since I cleaned up this messy spot right off the foyer. This is my youngest’s dumping and storage area, trust me when I tell you …
