following some winter blues and feeling paralyzed to deal with all of the STUFF, i've begun to chip away at things, and everything i accomplish feeds me with new energy.
today i sorted out our major collection, the playmobil. i am superwoman. i have sorted it into bigger categories, like 'farm' 'fairytale/castle' 'store' 'emergency' and 'school/playground' which for the moment are living in bags. then i've got the 'bitty box' for the million tiny bits, 'creature' boxes, and one large basket with plantlife and a few larger pieces. i've rotated out (can you believe there was anything left to rotate out?!!) the station, train tracks, and anything spring/summery like the pool and greenhouse, a couple of buildings, so i can rotate again in a few months. i have some ikea wooden boxes to build, little pull-out box drawers, so when i've assembled them i can label accordingly.
finally i have decided to let go of all kinds of (sweet, wooden) toys that just don't get used around here, even though we have a two year old, she wants to play with the big child toys. so, i'm lending them out or giving them away, and so we have just a bit more room to move.
next up, art supplies, books, and dress-up.
