I think this is my one resolution for the year. 

I started slowly on this path last fall. 

Overwhelmed by stuff coming into my house, from both my father's and m-i-l's houses, as well as my own collection, I had a garage sale and Handy delightedly took two truck loads to the thrift store. 

He had a laugh because he saw several of these cat scratchers like we had just bought. And guess what, ours went on the next load. 

I might try to sell a few things on eBay, like the expensive Ehrman Tapestry needlepoint kits I never got around to making. 

I never got around to a couple small upholstery projects so I called in the professionals and now after many years they are finally done. So maybe that's a second resolution. Delegate. 

Cleaning out the mind is harder! I'm working on it.

Good for you!
I can't even see the projects I need to finish because all of Christmas (most notedly, the tree) is still up and decorated. Even I am beginning to feel overwhelmed by the clutter at my house (which is saying quite a bit, right there).

I LOVE that poster. I so need to clean out everything...starting with my crazy schedule. The big purge will have to wait until spring here but the mind could always use a little sprucing up! Happy New Year!

SO true, we get to Dec 31 just itching to get rid of it all....

I went on a couple little purges this month. Nice feeling when it's done.
