Ask for what want through your Artwork

Ask for what want through your Artwork

When placed with intention, artwork is an easy and powerful way to bring good energy into your home.  Word of caution - if you aren't paying attention, the subject matter can easily work against you.
 
Consider your artwork to be ‘an order form to the universe’ as my girlfriend says.  You display it and the universe does it’s best to provide.

Who is buried in YOUR basement?

Who is buried in YOUR basement?

When discussing cutter, I tell my clients all the time, just clean 1 drawer, 1 shelf, a junk-collecting bowl - anything.  Big or small.  And when you do, you will feel empowered, lighter, optimistic.  You will feel so good, the motivation and opportunities to continue magically appear and you will achieve de-cluttering greatness.  And that goes for me too.

Plastic cards, they breed like bunnies!

 Plastic cards, they breed like bunnies!

I cannot bring myself to throw away those very popular plastic cards; you know the ones – gift cards, reward cards, hotel keys, poker cut cards (maybe that one is just me).  I have a stack of expired, out-dated, no-longer-relevant plastic cards.   Most curbside recycling programs do not accept these little guys. And so, the stack just grows and grows, waiting for a new home.

  • one hour of organizing – with a professional organizer to use those organization tools we bought

 This Aunt's Journey in Gift Giving - It's GO time.

Ta da! I did it. I came up with the perfect Christmas gift for two of my nieces.  My hubby and I were going to solve the one bathroom-lack-of-storage-get-the-kids-out-of-their-parent’s-bathroom dilemma.  We decided to give them an hour of organizing with Eliza Cantlay of Simplicana plus a day of fun where we would shop together for the "Eliza-approved" storage items and then celebrate with dinner! I really feel like we nailed it!

This Aunt's journey in gift giving. Experiences vs. Stuff.

 This Aunt's journey in gift giving. Experiences vs. Stuff.

I spend so much time talking about clutter and the affect it has on our lives.  I know it, you know it, we all know it. Clutter is a big deal because clutter kills chi. As a parent, it's never too early to teach your children to keep things organized and clutter- free and to introduce the principles of feng shui.

Clutter Shows Up in the Darndest Places!

Clutter Shows Up in the Darndest Places!

Do you collect greeting cards so you can snag the perfect one at a moment’s notice?  I do too. Most of the time, it’s been a great system. Tonight, though, it struck me that I’ve got some really, really old clunkers. Clearly I must have thought they were great at the time (like 20 years ago!), but now they are clutter. That means they are also an energy drain, pure and simple.
