When the Mr. and I bought our first home back in 2006, it was a huge 3 bedroom and 3 bath home with a cute little yard. It was perfect! We moved from our 450 sq ft college apartment into our home with plenty of room to grow, and grow we did! Now we feel like we’ve already outgrown it and we don’t even have littles yet! How did this happen? How did we acquire so much stuff? To be honest, I’m very sentimental and I know that I like to hold onto things for the memories, but this isn’t the only reason why our space is filling up. If I buy something that I need at the time and I don’t have room for it long-term, I have a hard time getting rid of it, because I think that I may need it again one day. Then I’ll have to buy it all over again. I can’t help it, it’s just the way that I think. I don’t like to be wasteful if I can help it.
The fact that I like to dabble in all things crafty really puts a strain on my tiny studio space. My studio is busting at the seams, so I had to move my sewing table to our reading nook in our bedroom! Bad, I know. Now we definitly don’t have room for future littles, in this house. There’s just no way.
I’ve been doing really well though (that’s a relative statement haha) at going through my supplies and donating what I don’t use to a local art foundation that works with at risk youth. It feels good to share and to clear a bit of breathing room. One day I hope to spread out my creative space a bit more, but until then, I’ll keep making room as I go. ♥R
**Oh and today is our 4 year wedding anni, so I’ll share a sweet little story later…
