What a week!!! My de-cluttering project is going well...by default if nothing else. We have had major internet problems all week. Then the network crashed and we kept getting a "contact your network administrator" message. Our "network administrator" is the oldest DS and he's still away at college. LOL!! But we went and bought a new router and so far so good.
So the decluttering project benefited from my not being able to access the internet. Hopefully those problems are solved (for now) and the spring cleanup is far enough along that I will be going ahead. Maybe a bit more sporadically but I am determined to be clutter free!
And towards that end I parted with my mom's pink dishes. I hated to do it for sentimental reasons but I can't tell the rest of the family "use it or lose it" and not follow through myself. Then I hit upon a wonderful idea. I was inspired by that wonderful designer and friend Betty Jo Martin. She takes wonderful still life photos of her collections. So that's what I did and I created a layout. Now, I can enjoy my mom's dishes without the clutter!! A special thanks to Betty Jo for the inspiration and the wonderful kit, Berries and Cream, I used to create the layout!!
