Yes, I did do the Konmari method- TWICE.
Yes, I did get rid of over half of my art supplies and all kinds of stuff (SO MANY CLOTHES!!) before we moved to NC.
Yes, I had to go through everything AGAIN and declutter.
It started innocently enough, I was putting away my laundry and I pulled out a bin to put away pajamas. It was already full and I had to smush the new clothes down on top to get them in the bin...and that triggered a semi nervous breakdown and then before I knew it I had gone through all the bins, three closets and then I was all sweaty standing in front of my studio/virtual classroom space looking at the clutter in disdain. So I just went full 'hurricane Jenny' mode (that is what my husband calls it)...and by late Sunday night I had reclaimed my space and my sanity.
(Top Left) Virtual Classroom area where I record my lessons...I organized ALL of the supplies underneath on both sides (Top Right) ...threw out some old magazines, straightened up my masks...still can't believe that is a 'thing'... (Bottom Left) I was so happy when I made this desk and created this little space- but I NEVER use it and then THAT stresses me out. So I decided that this will be my 'Morning Pages' and National Board Renewal dedicated space. (Bottom Right) More art supplies...this took me a little while but every single pencil, paintbrush, adhesive, etc is in its' place- and that brings me joy.
