It’s 99 days until Christmas, so if I plan to crochet or make anything as gifts for people I probably should start like…now.
(welp looks like I’m not crafting anything because I am lazy)
I used to love crocheting, but between work and arthritis my stupid hands aren’t up to it really anymore. Which sucks, because of course I have a shit ton of partially used yarn in the stash. Oh well.
I’ve also been working on decluttering myself from crap I don’t need. This has been a slow process and embarrassing honestly. This week’s goal was to figure out the makeup situation. Years ago I worked in a makeup store, and I love makeup. I also had an Ipsy box subscription for a long time. And then about 2 years ago I started dealing with rosacea and contact dermatitis issues on my eyelids, so I really drastically was cutting back on wearing makeup and then PANDEMIC so like … most of my makeup I hadn’t worn in about 2 years. Anyways. I made a command decision and threw away basically everything that wasn’t a powder formula unless it was in unopened packaging. A lot of the eyeshadow palettes younger me *had to have* but haven’t been used in years? Also thrown away. Fuck, y’all, I threw away a couple thousand dollars’ worth of old/expired/partially used product. That’s embarrassing. Next week’s topic might be *old clothes I would wear except I’m too fat for them and won’t be able to fit in them any time soon yet I struggle to get rid of them.*
Anyways, any of y’all have fall or winter projects you’re getting started on?
