Keep the Memories but Release the Stuff - Creative ways to honor and display our precious memorabilia and collections without the bulk and clutter.
Over the years we gather so many pieces of memorabilia -- photographs, t-shirts, letters, school papers, artwork, and so on. Add in the things our spouse saves and what we save from our children and it gets extensive. Then come the things we keep from our parents and other loved ones and it turns overwhelming. And if you are a collector (intentionally or accidentally) the situation is compounded even further. Lots of stuff with lots of emotional attachment. What should we do with it all?
On Sunday, September 18 from 3:30 - 5:00 pm, our monthly Simpler Life Conversations workshop will address the topic of memorabilia and collections. I'll delve into some of the reasons we hold on, and share creative ideas that allow for the release of some of the bulk. Then we'll open it up to conversation.
Join with others to share your successes and failures with letting go, decluttering, staying organized and simplifying. We offer support and discover we aren't alone with these issues. Learn some things you can try out for yourself at home! There is so much power in this group setting.
As women, we inhabit many roles and often lose ourselves as we do so much for others. Our possessions and our calendars may take control. At this monthly workshop for women, we meet with others looking to simplify and take back the management of their lives.
All women are invited to join us in conversation and activities. There is a small investment of $15 per session. Please register and pay by credit card through this Eventbrite link, or pay by cash/check at the event.
Each monthly session is led by Donna Dettling, Simplicity Coach, Professional Organizer, Artist, Speaker, and owner of Simpler Life Solutions. We begin with a time of reflection and the introduction of a topic. Donna then opens the conversation to participants and leads a discussion where everyone has opportunity for input. Suggestions are made for things to work on individually at home, and we close with positive intentions for the month ahead.
INTERESTED BUT NOT LOCAL or AVAILABLE ON SUNDAY? I also offer a Simpler Life Conversations teleseminar by phone on the third Monday evening of each month, from 7:30 - 8:30pm.
