Happy New Year!
Don't you just love new beginnings? A new chance to start over... to get it right this time... to wipe the slate clean and forget about last year's failures... ahhh, to do it better! (Or at least try!)
I did get my closet cleaned out and organized - if you could have seen my closet, you would have known how impressive that statement was. I had fabric left over from a project I did ten years ago and curtains that I made for our first house in Delaware (30 years ago)! Why I was saving them I'll never know...emotional attachment?...I did sew them myself--- or my own thriftiness...I may use them again? Who knows? ANYHOW, they're at the Goodwill now.
I've determined to get things organized and keep it that way. How long will this wishful/determined feeling last?! It gives me such a good feeling to get rid of things I no longer wear (or can fit into). Without all the extra stuff filling up the space, I can actually see what I have and it doesn't get as wrinkled all jammed in there. Simplify...simplify....simplify!
Anyhow, I hope you have a good beginning to the new year. Hope you have a fresh zeal and renewed energy (okay that may be a stretch coming on the heels of such a hectic Christmas holiday).
PS Someone ask me in March how clean my closet is and I will see how well I am doing.
