Cleaning and Organizing and Decorating

Last night, I sat on my couch and went through every pile of stuff on my coffee table. For someone who makes jewelry, you can't imagine all the piles. I sorted beads, threw away papers, sorted more beads, made some necklaces-sort of ADD cleaning. I am surrounded by piles. In front of me, plies of beads, to the right of me, piles of papers that need to be sorted; to the left of me, I can see the rest of my apartment and the piles of magazines that need to be looked through. I get every magazine you can think of-don't judge!

The home magazines are the ones I can't seem to get rid of. They are so expensive and beautiful when they arrive, full of ideas and pictures. Twice a year I go through them and tear out the pages I want to keep and put them in an Itoya portfolio. So, you can imagine that I have quite a stack and somehow it takes a while to get them organized in their binders. This is all part of my master plan when I finally get a real house (with hopefully a real husband), I will have plenty of resources to go to-basically years of tear outs of things I like.

Here are a few pages that are in the pile:





I want to pounce on the bed with the white headboard and the pretty pillows all stacked up!

I'm the same way, hording decorative magazines and clipping pictures. Great for inspiration and just simply dreaming.
Believe it or not I have saved many of my Martha Stewart Living magazines. In the basement in a pile! So silly since everything I can look u pis online, but I love the mags and pictures and sometimes put old editions in a large basket near a cahir in living room!
