Someone once said -

"There comes a time in your life, when you walk away from all the drama and people who create it. You surround yourself with people who make you laugh. Forget the bad, and focus on the good. Love the people who treat you right and pray for the people who don't. Life is too short to be anything but happy. Falling down is a part of life, getting back up is living." Amen

Cut Down Your CLutter??

Cut down on your clutter the creative way

What is it about creative people that brings out the clutter? Not every creative has a clutter problem but the majority of the ones I know could use a clutter intervention. The creative process tends to create a lot of detritus that usually gets left behind as soon as the next project is on the horizon. At a certain point the clutter reaches a tipping point (sometimes literally!) and it’s time to clean things up. Fortunately, there are some creative solutions to the clutter problem that everyone will love.

Make your workstation a display

If you’re anything like me then your working area is probably the nucleus of the clutter universe. Everything starts here and slowly spreads to other areas of the home. Before you know it crafting supplies are showing up in the guest bathroom with no explanation. One way to combat the expanding clutter is to fashion a stylish workstation that has a place for everything. I’m big into recycling, so I like the idea of making cubbyholes out of things that would otherwise go in the trash. For example, if you have a bunch of old coffee cans and some wood you can fashion an awesome cubby matrix to hang on the wall. Decorate the outside of the cans, fashion the wood into a square frame, and stick the cans in sideways with the open ends facing you. Then you have neat little round spaces to hold everything from yarn to scrapbooking supplies. Use this as inspiration to come up with more ways you can repurpose items into fun storage for your workspace.

Get your creative juices flowing

Have you ever been in a creative rut? You’ve been plugging away at various fun projects and all the sudden you have no ideas for what’s next. Or, maybe you’re right in the middle of a project and inspiration up and walks out the door. In these cases it’s usually good to find a small distraction until the creativity comes back. "Decluttering" is the perfect mindless activity to do when you find yourself in this kind of situation. Get up from whatever you’re doing and start getting the clutter under control. You can even set a timer so you know when it’s time to get back to work. Most of the time, you’ll be hit with a burst of creativity that will take you back to work anyway. Work these “creative clutter breaks” into your daily schedule and you’ll be surprised at how many new and neat ideas you stumble across when your mind is elsewhere.

Clutter doesn't need to go hand in hand with creativity. If you’re stuck in a cluttered mess use these ideas to get it under control.
