You may think what I’m going to share with you today is a bunch of woo-woo nonsense, but I must tell you that I 100% believe in the power of your mind… and even it’s inability to see around a mess.
My desk area has looked like this for probably about 6 months (gasp!):
Yup. It’s pretty embarrassing to show that to you. Particularly because it looked like that for so long. But over the weekend, I had finally had enough. That same area, now looks like this:
Oh gosh. I can’t tell you how much better I feel. I’ve already been way more productive today than I think I was all week last week. Now, it’s still not perfect… there’s still a little pile of “whatnots” in the other room that I haven’t found a home for yet, but this was so rejuvenating for me. I’m actually eyeballing some other areas of the house that are on my “up next” list.
I totally believe that clutter around you leads to a cluttered brain. And as much as I know that, I never made it a priority to fix this. Silly me.
I think this overly cluttered home of mine had me in a bit of a paralyzed mode… if you hadn’t noticed, I was pretty quiet last week. No Teach Me Tuesday video, no weekly email, not much on Facebook. I decided I was going to take a little self-care week. It wasn’t my intent initially, but once I found myself lazing around unable to get started on anything, I made “today the day” and I tackled that mess.
Now I feel as though I can think straight and I have lots of things I’d like to share with you in the coming weeks. We’re about half-way through Sale-A-Bration and I feel as though I haven’t shown you all the goodness available for free… PLUS we have three new items becoming available later this week!
In the meantime, check out this super cute card featuring the Bubble Over Stamp set:
This is such a fun stamp set… great for so many occasions including birthday, congratulations, baby, New Year — and so much more! What’s really fun is if you buy the bundle with the stamp set and coordinating dies, you’re just like $10 shy of $50, which means you could add in some of those awesome Tutti Frutti self-adhesive sequins and that mini stripe lemon lime twist ribbon and you can earn the coordinating Bubble & Fizz Designer Series Paper for free! Now that’s something to drink to, right? (wink, wink)
That’s all for today… I’ll be back on Friday with a sneak peek of some new Sale-A-Bration items so stay tuned!
