This inland, New York girl is New England prep done sparingly. Except for one HUGE painting of my beloved outer banks.

Thanks for sharing! Those are some really fun projects. I have done a few varieties of Coastal myself. It is fun to see how different client expectations can be when the words Casual Coastal are tossed around....

Does anyone do things right like on the DIY that show "Rescue My Renovation"? Because I studied fashion, found out that making jewelry is not a hobby but what I am good at- and even the silliest turn of a piece of copper wire really makes things look cheap and forbid me to use GOLD- SILVER- are you contractors just in it for the 4'ugh clock hour? Watch that show and suck it. Do things right. It doesn't hurt.

Our local school holds an annual kids flea market in the gym. When my kids were little I would buy them a table each ($5) and they would go through their toys and decide what they no longer wanted and sell them. Because they took good care of their toys they often sold out before the end of the day. Out of their earnings they would pay me back for the table and they got to keep the rest. It made it much easier for them to let go of things and taught them some good skills - arranging the items, figuring out how much to charge, when to discount the non-selling items, making change, etc. Good times.

Thanks for all the great ideas. My clutter is visual, namely paper. I invested in the Neat Desk and portable Neat Receipts scanner and firmly committed to digitizing my life (with Cloud back up). One way to prevent clutter is to avoid bringing it into the house. Therefore, I dump junk mail in the recycling bin outside as soon as I get my mail. And, I take the portable scanner with me on trips (or use the mobile app), scan or snap brochures, receipts, etc. instead of bringing the paper home. I also scan articles, rather than keep a pile of magazines in the house. A continual work in progress.
