De-cluttering to Show and Tell

today I wanted to do this . . .

I had this wonderful Show and Tell planned. I even mentioned it on Saturday in my post. But the photo's that I wanted to post today I cannot find! It is driving me crazy! Below is a framed drawing that I talked about on Saturday.

I intended to share a photo that is the inspiration for the above. But I cannot find any of the photo's I had set aside!
So instead of showing the rest of this collection my Show and Tell will consist of this one lone drawing.
My mother bought it for us at a craft shop. The drawing looks a lot like my daughter and her donkeys.

And now for the rest of my day I'll be doing this . . .

My De-cluttering project for today is this. . .

I am going to organize all our photo's again. The rest of the house duties are going to be delayed.
No cooking, no cleaning, no t.v.,no blogging,no laundry. Get the idea!

Well all that probably won't happen but I can at least dream. We have to eat so I guess I will cook. And no one else is here to clean or do the laundry except Cowboy and he is still recuperating from surgery.

But I am going to attempt to get this project done if not today then over the weekend. That's three days devoted to organizing photo's and maybe scrapbooking a few and then joining Scrappin' Sunday.

Sounds like a good goal to me.
I hope everyone has a great Show and Tell. I'll be checking in on all of you.
Please leave me a comment. I so need the encouragement today!

The drawing is precious. Oh, I should have been in on this decluttering challenge! Sometimes I actually feel a semi backed up to the back door might be easier! I just have TOO MUCH!!

I need a de-cluttering day myself! I have years worth of photos that need to be organized. You just gave me a great project idea. BTW the drawing is beautiful.

I love how you marked out blogging for your not to do list! I'm having to set a timer today 15 min of 'work' 15 min of play-I'm a bad girl (actually bad middle aged woman:) Have fun sorting pictures-and only doing what is necessary!

That picture is sweet!

Cute, cute picture.
How many donkeys does your daughter have? I hope you got your projects done.

That is such a precious drawing! I hope you are having a successful time decluttering. We are going to work on my husband's office this morning.
