Before I share with you today’s Power Purge, I want everyone to see that THERE IS Quilt-Cam tonight at 9pm EST!
I made this decision this morning after realizing that my flight Wednesday morning has me leaving the house at 4:30 am to run to the airport….that means an EARLY bed time ((Isn’t it so much easier to do when it gets dark earlier at night?))
And when I get back on Saturday we’ll be smack in the middle of a weekend…Monday my dad comes from Arizona and Thanksgiving week will be upon us.
So tonight it is!
Grab a project, come back to the blog at 9pm EST tonight and watch for the Quilt-Cam post to publish. The feed will be embedded in that post, NOT on the Quilt-Cam tab. I can’t archive it until the video is published on Youtube…so it’s live on the page first, then I archive it after under the Quilt-Cam tab….get it? Got it!
Cute the spooky music!
I present to you….***duh duh duh!!*** The unassuming looking jewelry cabinet of horrors!
Though it may look all prim and proper on the outside, complete with it’s very Victorian necessary pot underneath, indeed….behind closed drawers you will find….
Oh. My. AWFUL!!
Today’s 5 minute Power Purge was tackling JUST ONE DRAWER of this mess…..to create some order. To find lost parts of pairs. To decide to keep or to donate or pitch ---
The contents of the top drawer….
I’m really not “that much” of a jewelry girl. I love fun stuff. Quilt related? All the better. But I tend to stick with basic earrings when I travel because I don’t want the added pain of multiple pieces of jewerly in my luggage, and I don’t want to have to take the time to change out earrings and necklaces on a trip when basics do just fine and look just as nice.
But I admit it…there are several pairs of 1980s or 1990s earrings in here, and I LIKE them still. Maybe I’ll go retro and start wearing those oldies but goodies?
These don’t belong in this drawer…being held over for another drawer purging.
These are also not going in this drawer…
There are earrings that are missing mates…could be in other drawers? Pins that don’t have a home…a TSA approved luggage lock? Shouldn't be with jewelry anyway!
Overflow box…until I sort the rest and find places for this stuff to go.
One drawer down….several to go!
How’s things going on your end? Are you taking up the challenge to spend 5 minutes Power Purging one area of your life that is bugging you?? Post in the comments below and inspire us all where to tackle next!
Carolina Chain is ON the machine!
It’s a rainy Monday in Quiltville, NC. I’ll be hiding in the basement working on this until Quilt-Cam time tonight, and then it will likely be some more 9 patch fun for the quilt for my nephew-to-be!
Catch you then!
