So for this week, the word will be "green" So have fun with it, and we'll see your "green" pictures on Sunday 1st May 2016.

Take Care

So sign up with Mr LInky below, and good luck everyone!
Welcome back everybody! Good to see you all again!
So, we have all had 2 weeeks to find our "unclutter" photo, how did you all go?
I had a bad fortnight, what with all the coming and going, and the rant! By the way, thank you for all your comments, I really appreciated everyone taking the time to talk me through that. I have emailed everyone that I could email, and I have taken on board some wisdom. Thank you.
So anyhows, as I was saying, I have such clutter around me most of the time, I couldn't decide where to start! So i started with our home "office " area. We have had to rearrange some furniture, so a lot of "stuff" got thrown into the "office" and left. So I have taken these pictures:
Just imagine how this room would look, if I actually got in there and UNCLUTTERED it!
This is through the doorway - it is only a small room and we keep a bed in here in case we need it - well, it used to be a futon, but that's out and those big long boxes contain a sindle metal bed frame, that will go along under the window.
Look at it!!!! It's the biggest mess!! I will begin to work on it tomorrow -- looks like a few days of shredding happening here! I might even show you a picture tomorrow night, of this same roon UNCLUTTERED! Would you like that?
Bear in mind that my sewing room is in even a worse mess!
So, join in now by filling in my Mr Linky below, and then we can all see your photo of Uncluttered!!
If you are just passing through, join in below and we can all visit your blog as well!
I'm really sorry, but I need to have a bit of a rant here.
WARNING Parts of this rant may offend some people, so please do not take anything personally.
I jsut need to get something off my chest!
I have spent years making and gifting many items - be they quilts, knitted baby wear, crocheted or knitted blankets, shawls - the list could go on. I spend a lot of time, money, energy making these items, because I love to make things. I don't want kudos, I just want to make something for someone, it gives me great pleasure and I pour a lot of love into everything I make.I often don't mention things on this blog because they are personal and I don't want to mention them!!
Over the past two years, probably, I have noticed that often, when I gift an item, I don't even know if the person has received it, yet alone anything else.
People appear to believe that the item I have made is worth no more than the same item from a department store that they can buy for $5. That item will fall apart before 12 months passes, but they can easily go and buy another!
They appear to place no value on the work and love that has gone into what I have gifted.
They don't appreciate it.
I have, at times, sent items interstate and never been told that they have arrived, let alone received a "thank you".
Am I being rude here? Can anyone relate to what I am saying? Am I stupid to expect that my gift would be appreciated? or am I being silly?
Please, can someone tell me how to get over this unappreciated feeling? Am I placing too much onto people, to expect a small response, or am I just plain old stupid.
Even though I am upset about this, I know I will continue to make things for others and continue to be upset by their lack of understanding, but can anyone give me some idea of how to live with this? Please let me know your ideas, I really do need some other viewpoints here. Thanks
