The De Santafaction process begins!

Well, I procrastinated as long as I could, the taking down of Christmas trees ,wreaths, Santa's is always a sad time for me. Tucking away all my favorite beaded ornaments and collectible figures I have founde over the years.
I love the way our home glows with soft twinkling lights, sparkling ornaments , and my Santa collection displays. I would leave them up all year round if it weren't for the dried up Christmas tree and people thinking I was just a little odd. LOL who am I kidding, people already think I'm odd!
I managed to clean out my laundry room today, which is a catch all for things that don't have a place or in this case , wrapping paper, tissue, bows, plus several finished gourds and just plain old junk! Throwing things away has always been hard for me , everything has possibilities for future art projects, however I have come to realize if I don't start throwing things out I will be up to my blooming arse with this stuff! I'll be like the people who pass away leaving 100's empty milk cartons or some such stuff for others to deal with. Besides there's always going to be new things to replace them. Maybe even better things! hmmmm.
Tomorrow, I tackle the most dreaded room of all.... My studio! music should be playing here, the scary dum.. dum... dum.. the one that plays right before the unsuspecting victim opens the door to the spookiest room in the house. This would be my studio. I started to clean it last week, moving things around but its still out of wack. I need my studio to make sense to me. I let it take on a life of its own and now my beast has to tamed again. So I will have to rearrange furniture and just plain put things away before I can do anything creative in there.
I can't have fun until my work is done! Phooie! Wish me luck as I go to do battle~ Susan~

I so relate to wanting to keep 'the glow' - it's very soothing on a cold, dark night. I haven't started my de-Santification process yet - put 'DUNG THE STUDIO' on the top of the list. Worked for 7 hours yesterday and got a tiny start. I took a before pic ... I bet I'd win the Biggest Nightmare contest!!
