A Spring Capsuling Update

It's snowing outside. Just flurries, but in the past couple of weeks we've had a semi-storm, a nor'easter and constant flurries. Not to mention the sub-zero temperatures more reminiscent of January than March. Despite daylight savings time making it lighter in the evenings, I am not feeling the 'spring' vibe. Needless to say, my wardrobe capsuling … Continue reading A Spring Capsuling Update

The Post Purge Office Organization

I am in the final stretches of turning my office into a library / craft room! But I ran into a bit of a hitch as I was decluttering and trying to re-organize the layout and how best to store things for optimum neatness. Because the room was previously used solely for my writing, it had two bookshelves … Continue reading The Post Purge Office Organization

When Plans Go Awry

For the shortest month of the year, February always seems to feel like the longest. Maybe it's the crappy weather, the inundation of snow that feels never ending as it piles higher and higher on the snowbanks framing my driveway. Or maybe it is simply that I'm now thisclose to Spring yet it feels so … Continue reading When Plans Go Awry

Ms. Go-Go, Gandalf & Sanity

Hard to believe we've reached the end of January already! This month has been a very busy month for me. I've worked hard to take on a more minimalistic lifestyle and mindset and feel much calmer than I did a few months ago. Because a few months ago, I felt anything but calm. Now, brace … Continue reading Ms. Go-Go, Gandalf & Sanity

The Pro & Con of Shiny and New

I have an iPhone 6. It's just over 2 years old and according to my cell phone provider I am ready for an upgrade! Do I want/need an upgrade? Yes to the want, but need? Well, let's review: In the Pro column: The iPhone 7 has a superior camera and my phone is what I … Continue reading The Pro & Con of Shiny and New

The Winter 10×10 Challenge

I didn't get too much work done on curating my closet and developing outfit styles, etc. thanks to a winter storm that hit us overnight and dumped a ton of snow in our driveway. After shovelling out, I sat down and was perusing Instagram when I came across some people doing the #winter10x10 challenge. What this is, … Continue reading The Winter 10×10 Challenge

Stripping Down

In early December, I ordered The Curated Closet by Anuschka Rees in the hopes this book would (1) assist me in cleaning out my closet, and (2) give my style a bit of a reboot. I have a pretty good idea of what my style is, but my current wardrobe isn't quite matching up with … Continue reading Stripping Down

Putting It Down on Paper

I find I work best when I track things. Not just the things that need to be done, but also the tasks that have been completed. Or haven't been, as sometimes is the case. My preferred method for this is my bullet journal, which I use for daily tasks, monthly planning, appointments, to dos, tracking habits, etc. I check … Continue reading Putting It Down on Paper

The Road Ahead

Here we are ~ January, 2017. This isn't just any other new year for me either. In a few short weeks I hit the big 5-0 (when did that happen??). The sudden realization that I'm entering the second half of my life puts an odd urgency to things that wasn't there before. I want to get things done, things I've … Continue reading The Road Ahead

My Addiction

My name is Kelly and I'm a knitter. That's only partly true. I am a knitter. I have an Etsy shop and everything. But in the past two years I haven't had much time to knit, so in truth what I have become is a yarn hoarder. Because while I haven't been knitting much, I have continued … Continue reading My Addiction
