If a clean closet is a sign of a clear mind...
then I am on my way to one crystal clear mind ;-)
I have been wanting to create a craft/office space in our basement closet
for quite some time now.
I decided to begin by clearing out the boxes and boxes
of home decorating magazines
that I have amassed through the years.
I set the alarm 10 minutes earlier.
I shuffle to the kitchen to start the morning brew-
then I scuttle down the stairs to choose just the right magazine.
The next few minutes are bliss.
I sit at the kitchen island-
sipping my morning sustenance
(usually a vanilla sustenance although fall puts me in the mood for something more like pumpkin spice)
and sift slowly through the pages.
While admiring all of the glorious photographs-
I choose some favorites and tear them out.
(storing pages is a lot less space consuming than boxes full of magazines).
Not only is it a wonderful way to begin the day
and an efficient way to solve my storage issue-
It allows me to share my inspiration with you.
Now it is off to indulge in a little evening sustenance...
Good evening wherever you are.
