My Crafts Box
Back when I sorted out the bottom half of my linen cupboard, I shoved all my crafting crap into a massive plastic storage box. I attempted to put my sewing machine in with it all, but it didn’t fit. In fact, even without the sewing machine, it was a struggle to get the lid on.
I was happy enough with this set up at the time, but now that I’m the sh*t sorting queen I know better. I could do better. This box of crafting crap needed to be sorted.
I haven’t mentioned it before now because it’s kind of embarrassing, but sorting out sh*t like this stresses me out. When I start going through all the crap I own and find that I don’t actually know what the hell I should do with any of it I start getting hot. Really hot. Like sweaty forehead and armpits kinda hot. And then I start to feel irritated. And then, if I don’t manage to stop and think and acknowledge the fact that I am feeling stressed, I end up going a little bit mental.
Thankfully I didn’t actually go mental today. But I came close. I felt myself get hot and irritated and then I thought, Screw it, just throw this sh*t away.
The sewing machine is inside that box now. And so is my gigantic sewing machine caddy type thing. And so is a good five inches of empty space, that could be filled but that I’m planning not to fill. Less sh*t, less stress. It’s funny cos it’s true.
