Today I felt a strong urge to clean. Not just wipe the surface of countertops and put things away but something deeper. I feel like sorting thru my clothes, books, drawers, art supplies and toiletries to weed out what I haven't used in a while and savor the ones I do.
I've spent a lot of time in quiet this past week and I've realized I am feeling a bit closed in by clutter. Not only surrounding me in my home but also within my mind, on my website, in my studio etc. I am craving simplicity and Zen (hence the new look to my blog).
My husband and I are also working on a new and refreshing look to my website. You will see it when my store opens in November.
I know most people experience these type of decluttering urges when Spring approaches. We call it "Spring cleaning". But for me, it usually comes in Fall. When the air smells of the promise of rain I feel an essence of peace and crave a simpler life.
So I call it "Fall cleaning".
