I spent 2 hours in the office yesterday, sorting paperwork and putting things away. It looks great, but I know I am only about 1/3 of the way done. The office needs decluttering more than any other room; it seems that craft items are the hardest thing to let go of.

We are going to list most of my rubber stamps on eBay this weekend. The tough thing is figuring out how to list them; do I go with one huge lot, or separate things so the lots are more affordable? Do I list Stampin' Up! sets as one lot? What about the various PSX (Personal Stamp Exchange) stamps that are worth quite a bit individually? I have to think about it and do more research.

Today's homekeeping goals:

Tidy and declutter in office
Pick up Rx
File paperwork
Mop floors (when boys are at BMX)
Keep clean rooms in house tidy!

Finally, I am going to pull out a few handwork projects to do in the evenings. The cream wool scarf is already started. I'm going to start Thomas' knit hat (loom) once he falls asleep tonight. I'm also going to create a little project bag with cotton yarn so I can whip up dish cloths whenever I have a few spare minutes. I need to go through the yarn and decided what it wants to be; I have a lovely green vintage French wool that should be put to use, as well as the softest cream alpaca. I've been saving that for when I learn to knit. In the box (I just took a peek) there is also a pound of organic cologrown cotton chenille yarn, and a variety of wools and wool-blends.

Oh yeah, a couple of years ago I picked up a vintage Loomette, and I would love to do a project with it!
