Visual Clutter...Ugh

It seems that everywhere, visual clutter is overwhelming my eyes. From electrical lines to billboards to roving vehicles, my eyes have no place to rest. Even in my studio, piles of books, files, papers, compete with racks of supplies. I feel like I'm drowning in STUFF.

What to do? Clean up, straighten up, and throw out. I have begun to attack the weight of things, both done and undone. My desk area is straight, and I'm leaving it that way each day when I turn out the lights. That's a small step in the right direction to lighten my load.

I am having a closet built to hide all of my supplies. I have stripped the walls of those  myriad printouts of sayings, of cartoons that spoke to me, of photographs and assorted other visuals that make my eye dance. I like the empty white walls. It is peaceful and inviting. Soon, the whole room will be like that!

If only it would stay uncluttered! I've recycled, I've shredded, I filled garbage bags and admired my tidy areas.....then, it comes back, seemingly overnight.
I love neatness. I need it. But I'm not!
Best wishes to you and yours!

Thanks Dannie.
I though I'd snap a photo so I could remember the tidiness, before it disappears

Have a wonderful holiday
