I am always humbled and somewhat nervous!
I am so grateful that anyone cares to follow or read my little blog! It completely amazes me!
And then the conversation switched to "You lead such a fairytale life. It must be so nice!"
I cried all the way home from the grocery store!
I don't want anyone to think I have a perfect life.
It's hard...just like everyone else's.
I think it's time to clear a few things up and let you see my current circumstances.
Hold on my friends....this is not pretty!
I have been so overwhelmed lately.
We moved home...(upstairs at least)
I fell off the landing and hurt my lower back.
I caught a really bad cold.
I broke my pinky on my left hand.(I am left-handed)
And just this week....My hubby had a two day, excruciatingly painful procedure on his right hand
(yes, he's right handed)
The store where I work went through a total renovation.
And my home renovation turned 4 years and 6months.(Yeah, we have been under construction for nearly 5 years!)
I do not think I lead a fairytale life.
Until I got home.
And realized how blessed I really am.
God is always so good! He opened my eyes and made me take a look at just what He has given me.
With so much going on all over the world...I felt such guilt for feeling anything other than blessed.
I have been blessed with a gift. A talent to transform space into magical wonderful places. I don't only do this at the store but in the homes of my clients!
I have taught classes on design, living a creative life, living in small spaces and others; but I also teach
on how to get organized.
Showing you these pictures, is VERY HARD for me.
But I want you know. I have been there. I AM there.
I too have to deal with massive amounts of stuff.
I am going to get my life back.
Do you want to tag along?
I promise I won't ask you to lift heavy things or sort!
I just want you...My dear friends to know I too need to get my act together.
I am usually very organized. It's a little bit freaky sometimes!
This got away from me.
When we decided to move out the cottage in time to let my hubby have a place he could recover...
Away from my work...and the renovation downstairs!
A place where he could sleep a bit late and not have to raise or lower a Murphy Bed.
I allowed this to happen.
I started piling things in the cottage to get them out of the cracks and crevices they have been stored for nearly 5 years.
Out of the construction zone...and out of the basement.
I needed to see what I have.
It's time to deal with it.
While hubby is upstairs in our tiny new apartment...I will be transforming this...
All of this...
Into an amazing place for me to be creative!
My new Studio!
This will not be easy...If you have ever attended one of my classes you have heard me say these very words.
You also need to know that I don't believe you can have a truly beautiful home unless you deal with it.
(Something else you have heard me say)
I am not going to be hiding things in the closet and pray that it does not fall on my head
I am going to show you how I do this...for real.
I want you to see...it really is possible to have the life you have always dreamed of.
And how it really does begin with this step.
De cluttering your life.
I would love for you to join me on this journey!
Even if you do not need to get organized...I would love your support!
You, everyone of you who follow me here are my friends and your comments and support mean the world to me.
They keep me going and help me to focus.
So what do you think?
You up for a challenge?
I begin posting tomorrow!
