The downside of decluttering

Everybody wants to organize their space these days - whole magazines and stores dedicated completely to organization.  Remember when people had far too little to be bothered 'organizing' stuff? 

(I do, because my house was built then.  Hence the need to organize stuff.)

Anyhoo: I had a major sewing-related breakthrough yesterday and spent the whole day finally making and implementing the two organizational aids* I have been dreaming of - I am quite serious by the way, actually dreaming while awake and/or asleep - and, wow!


Erm... yes. 

Well, things are very organized in the kitchen and front hall now, and very white and decluttered and tidy.

It looks a bit funny, a bit bare, a bit like I moved into a hospital, but... yes. Tidy.  And now I will be able to find things simply, quickly, and calmly, contributing to my drive to find More Time To Write. 

(I'll just feel like I'm writing in an institution, is all.)

(but I'm sure I'll get used to it.)

(and if not, I can always go back to my cluttered ways.  might happen anyway, right?)

* pictures and DIY details later this week!

Looking forward to pics--your place is so cute! And hoping for details; I finally got my sewing place to the point I don't need a bulldozer to get in! A little rearrangement wouldn't hurt. ;^)
