I cannot express to you with adequate exuberance how wonderful I feel after simplifying my bedroom. It goes beyond tidying, cleaning, or even organizing (in my opinion), because it took the space where I spend most of my time, and stripped it down to a manageable level! I have everything I need, and not enough extra to stress me out any time in the near future. Praise the Lord for my momma encouraging me to participate in this week's Simplifying for Sanity! It was several hours of work, but I feel simply magnificent since finishing it.
Can you see why it needed work so badly?
No need for a double take...yes, that IS my Christmas tree. *gasp*
Being sick does take its toll on my surroundings as well--as you can see from the pile of Kleenex on my nightstand and the flax bag lying on the floor.
This is the spot I'm most excited about...
Clean desk = Happiness!
I made my bed! I know...big whoop....no seriously!
You all are going to think I've lost my marbles--frankly, I'm beginning to think so--but, two days ago, I said a long and heartbreaking goodbye to my dearest Mr. Bean; or rather, the poster of him that had hung on my wall for several months. I only had one consolation good enough to relieve my suffering.
Ooh....what is that?
It's my brand new decal from Leen the Graphics Queen!
I am vividly aware of how cheesy those last few captions sounded, but I am truly extremely excited about this new addition to my wall-dwelling family. It just brings a new effect of contrast to that wall--it makes the whole room look crisper! Ah! I love it!
Leen, you are amazing!
Guys, you have to go check out her store. You will fall in love. My tree is probably my new favorite piece in the room.
So now, when I walk into my room, I am greeted by a tidy and inviting piece of me...
...and I can play my violin without chaos surrounding me!
Ah....it feels so. nice.
