Spring is my inspiration this week...

With flowers blooming, the scent of orange blossoms in the air and the sun shining, who wouldn't be inspired to start spring cleaning?! Yesterday I worked in the garage for a few hours to create a workspace for REiDesign. Boy do we have a LOT of STUFF! With no basement or attic space our garage has become the "catch all" for Halloween/ Easter/Christmas decorations, baby items (which I have resigned to sell), tools, camping gear... you get the picture.

Well, now there is a "woman cave" in one corner. I am inspired by artwork, antique mirrors, magazine clippings, rows of ribbon... I am ready to create, design, refinish, paint, sew, reupholster... you name it I can do it all in my own little workspace! Very exciting I know.

So, how did I do it?

I started pulling stuff out into the driveway and moved things around like a rubic cube. I relocated gardening tools, cleaned out old paint (10 cans +) - check with your city, every city has a hazardous waste/electronic waste drop off site, start w/ your city website under waste management. Next, items I am not going to sell on CraigsList, I put on, where people will pick up items right out of my driveway.

Once you start cleaning out, it's amazing what you can get rid of! Happy Spring Cleaning!
