At the Auntie B’s Wax World Headquarters springtime poses a bit of a dilemma. On one hand I love to tackle the spring cleaning chores. Deep cleaning. Thorough cleaning. The kind of cleaning that takes a few weeks to accomplish. On the other hand a lot of my crafting projects clutter up the house.
Tidiness facilitates cleaning projects, crafting projects thwart tidiness.
I’m in a constant state of conflict trying deciding what should take priority.
For example, creating drink charms involves this…
Luckily the candle creations occur in Craftland, far away from the living spaces I want to deep clean. Craftland never gets a deep clean, but while wax is cooling in the molds I try to straighten up the area and keep things organized. Multi-tasking, man.
Creating, tidying and deep cleaning keeps me busy in the spring. Also kind of makes me mental. With my shoulder to the wheel those deep cleaning projects will be completed and I’ll feel so accomplished. Or maybe, as is the case many years, the ammonia, rags and mops will become forgotten before I’ve finished spring cleaning the entire house and my attention will focus on bottle caps, fragrance oils and wicks.
Either way, everything will get done in time. I hope.
