I am having a clear out.

I feel the need for my home and lifestyle to be as fresh and uplifting as my aromatherapy case.

I have cleared out and organised my craft boxes, I have reduced it down from 7 bags and boxes, to 3. One of those is stock so if I sell it all I will be down to 2.

I have finished off and thrown out all those half used bottles in the bathroom. I cleared out my make up bag and chucked anything that was over two years old that I kept "just in case"

I have sorted out my bookcase and given anything I won't read again to a local charity. I cleared out my CD's and DVD's. Yes I need to get rid of my videos soon.

Paperwork is ready to be shredded, the rest has been filed away properly. Where I can I have switched to online statements.

Old clothes have been bagged up and either binned due to how much they were loved, read 'holey' or sent off to charity.

I have bags and bags of fancy dress outfits that are going to make their way onto eBay soon.

I feel uplifted and my home feels more spacious. There is still plenty of work to be done, now I have made a start I can see the benefits.

It has been very busy here......

.......At Serenity Studios. I have been creating stock for Craftfest week starting the 9th June. I have made a start anyway.

My daughter has just turned 3 and asked for a party, bless her all she wanted for her birthday was a party, a pink necklace, a purple bracelet and a red teddy. Oh and a pink sparkly fairy princess castle cake, obviously. I was quite proud of her that she didn't have a great big list of dolls and toys. She had loved every present that she received and has played with them all.

She has a princess party at playgroup at the end of the month, so in a moment of madness (I was ill at the time) I decided I make her a princess dress. 5 metres of fabric has been gathered up to make the pink sparkly skirt of the dress. I am actually quite proud of it.

With the joys of living in a rented property, we have a house inspection coming up soon, so I am having a mad cleaning session, plenty of tea tree and lemon oil to get the grub moving and the spring fresh scent into the house. I do clean regularly, but I always worry that it isn't good enough.

Once the madness has calmed down and sorted itself out, I intend to get organised. Especially with Serenity Potions. I am fully aware that I have been neglecting her dreadfully, I haven't spent nearly as much time working as I wanted to. Hopefully June will be a fresh start to it all.
