Massage, O Bear, and KonMari

This morning I headed down to Japantown to the Kabuki Spa to enjoy my Christmas present from my husband, a gift certificate for massages. It was my first time there, which is hard to believe! It’s a lovely place, and the massage and baths were very nice.

While I waited for my ride home, I squeezed in some bear knitting time.

Bear knitting is great for on-the-go!

By the end of soccer practice this afternoon, I had a finished bear!

Her shiny pal Norbert is happy that she’s finished and they can play


I’ve been working slowly, and not so steadily on the KonMari method of decluttering. Today I attacked some books, photos, and the knitting/spinning magazines that somehow escaped my attention the first time around. (I know, you’re supposed to do all of one type of item at once, but it doesn’t always work like that with my lifestyle. I just do my best.)
I decided to purge this pile of knitting and spinning magazines, and keep only what’s in the file box.

With what I culled last time, this is my pile of knitting and spinning magazines to discard.

More space! Less clutter and stress! Doing the small bits and pieces of decluttering feels really good, and I definitely think a lot harder about purchasing new things.  I’ve hardly knitted any patterns from these, and while I enjoyed reading the spinning magazines, I don’t actually use them for reference or anything other than eye candy.  Hopefully someone else can find them useful!
