Just Painting Cards, Bookmarks & Decluttering

Valentines Day is just around the corner, so it's time for a few hearts.
Bookmarks are a nice little gift.

I am finally able to start with the word I picked for 2015.
I am being brutal this time around, especially with my clothes.
I have so many jackets I don't wear and I know there
 are people who would love them and need them.
My life style has changed and no use for business
clothes. So out they go to women looking for jobs.
Once I get through the clothes the kitchen is next.
I figure when I get through those  I shall be ready to conquer 
my sewing room and finally my studio. (that one will be hard)
But declutter I will.
Wish me luck.....

I've been at the de-cluttering for a year now - it does feel good to get things more organized and down sized.

Cute cute hearts!!!!

Love the book marks, So cute.
I still need to declutter, especially the kitchen. The cupboards are full but I do not use half of it. Good luck with your decluttering...

Lovely HeArt bookmarks. Ahh...the declutter factor! How thoughtful to gift your business clothes to women searching for or working with little or no clothing funds. I have been donating lots of clothes, shoes, purses and such to Women of Worth right here locally. I still have tons to clear out of my dressing is not easy for me either. Blessings Dear...

good luck! I need to declutter and clean and organize and purge and all that but I keep putting it off. So many more fun things I want to do. :) The bookmarks are very sweet. Best wishes, Tammy

I DO wish you luck!
Out of the de-cluttering must come joy, at giving your clothes and other stuff a new lease of life with other people, joy in the celebration of giving and of space.
Enjoy too! xxx

Love your heart bookmarks, Sharon.

I have been painting some LOVE as well, and listed them in my Etsy shop.

I have also been cleaning out closets, and cabinets too. I have several boxes ready for the thrift store. I know I have something someone has been looking for!! :)

Thanks for sharing your beautiful watercolor art.

Your hearts are adorable! I think everyone I know is in the declutter mood, including me. I took truckload of clothes to Salvation Army and need to do at least that much again. Now that I'm retired, not many clothes needed. I also have tons of jewelry I love but don't wear, but they are not going to charity.

I leave next Sunday for a week-long art retreat in Tucson! The website is I've been to the same group in Houston area twice but this one is lots larger with about 200 students. Can't wait!!

I also ordered the cutest Queen doll from an artist in Australia. The postage is ridiculous but it is so unique for my collection of queens.

Is your leg healing well? Are the boys sweet as ever? My friend just got a Havanese puppy that is brown and white. He's adorable but not as cute as yours.

Have a good week.
Loves from The Queen

Good luck Sharon with your Declutter. Hard work while you are doing it but so refreshing when you are finished. :-)

Those bookmarks are too cute.

Love those bookmarks, Sharon! Decluttering is on my agenda also although I'm not very good at it.
