Tidy House Tidy Mind

That's the theory right?

We've been having a real good clear out over the last two days. It started with my craft room when I decided to have a real good sort through all my stash. It's ended up with a pizza box full of scraps and a HUGE stack of paper to give away to my MIL. I never use those scraps, I don't know what I'm saving them for. I always think one day I'll use them but I don't, infact I can't remember ever sitting down, starting a project and thinking "right lets look in those scraps and find something". Pretty bad huh? But I know my MIL will appreciate them, she's just getting going and so both the scraps and papers will be much appreciated!

After my craft room though it's kinda spread to the rest of the house. I've been sorting through my clothes today. How have I got so many? I don't feel like I have a huge range of clothes that I wear yet somehow I have a huge number. There's a pile ready and waiting to go the charity shop now though. I could still do with getting rid of some more, I don't wear them but atleast it's a start.

We connected by brand new ink system as well tonight, it's a CIS (Continuous Ink System) and it's fab. I honestly cannot tell the difference between the prints we did tonight and those from original Epson ink cartridges. Yet the difference in price is amazing. This ink system works out at the equivalent of 40p per ink cartridge, just a small difference when you think that the Epson ink cartridges for mine are £7 each and it takes 6 seperate cartridges! Even if you buy them as multi packs it still costs £35 for a set of 6! I just wish I'd done it sooner now. I got mine from City Ink Express if you want to check it out, they do the system for just about every printer on the market. Great service too and really quick delivery.

Anyway, I will be back again soon and this time I promise to share some more of my recent work!
