I Have Not Even Made A Dent In Cleaning The Studio

Not really, anyway. Not nearly as much as I need to do.

But how nice is that stack of books?!


The Beginning Of DeCluttering

 Oh Boy. I finally walked into the studio and started dealing with the piles that I am SO good at leaving perched on top of my crafting desk.

Long Drawn Out Sigh.
 I am really, really good at piling, hmmmm? Just to clarify, there is nothing on the floor. I like to pile my things on top of tables!

Let's see what can get done this morning...


This Might Be The Best Thing I Have Found On Pinterest Yet

Another one of my big goals over the summer is to actually do more of what I find inspiring on Pinterest.

(So add that to my list of: getting organized, decluttering, making new foods, losing weight, thrifting, doing fabulous things to my space at Memory Lane and in my Etsy Shop and making memories with my family that will last a lifetime...)

Making this little treat off of Pinterest was definitely quicker and nearly life changing. Ever since the winter-before-last and my freaky bout with pneumonia that landed me in the ICU, I have been a little over the top about breathing in anything such as heavily scented candles or plug ins. So when I saw this pin and was told how goooooood it smelled (like Williams-Sonoma!) I grabbed the ingredients and let it simmer away.

It. Smells.Wonderful.

And more importantly? It got rid of the smell of BROCCOLI in my kitchen within minutes.

Here is what you do:
Slice a Lemon
Add a few springs of Rosemary
Pour in a couple tsp of Vanilla
Add water and simmer.

Easy Peasy and again, it smells soooooooo good and I don't have to worry about any of us breathing it in.
