A few weeks ago, I went to go sit down at my craft space, but then realized, I couldn't even get to my craft space, as it was overrun with "stuff". So much stuff, piled and thrown, here and there. I'm sure my fellow crafters can relate. Of course, if you remember, my craft space is a literal closet, which, really, doesn't provide that much room, so I really need to keep it under control at all times, or it gets really out of control. I hadn't done a massive clean-up since sometime last year, and even then, it wasn't as massive as it needed to be, as I held on to lots of stuff that I had been holding onto and never used, you know, just in case. Once again, I'm sure my fellow crafters can relate.So, I started in, one bin, one jar, one box, one item at a time and I purged and I purged and it felt so good, while also feeling really overwhelming. I had stuff pulled out from the closet everywhere, all over my bedroom. After seeing the pile of stuff I was purging, I couldn't believe it had all been in my closet, as my closet was still full!I gave a huge box and some bags of stuff to a few of my friends, one of whom was going to bring a ton of it into her work, as she works at a establishment that helps individuals with development problems. They love arts and crafts, but their supplies are limited, so she knew that they would love everything I gave her.
After giving a ton away, I still found a bunch of stuff that I don't plan on using. And really, if I don't plan on using it or if it doesn't fit my current "style", why hang on to it in case and let it clutter my creative space, which in turn clutters my creativity? I'm sure others can find uses for it, so, with what's left, I'm having a huge DESTASH sale @ Other Such Nonsense 2: Vintage & Supply! I'll be adding lots of items throughout the next week. I hope to have everything listed as fast as I can list it, as I really want to just get rid of it all.
