How To KonMari Your Fabric Stash

Have you read The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up? Are you part of the converted or a skeptical bystander? As a recovering hoarder who has been truly changed by the KonMari method, I’m going to share with you how I purged and organized my stash to help keep my sanity in my small apartment. The specific tips and ideas may not fit for everyone, but my fabric stash has been my biggest mountain to climb when trying to simplify my life and my possessions.

Welcome To The New Site!

I have been working so hard to revamp The Morose Bee and if you're reading this post that means it's finally happened! I started The Morose Bee in my college dorm room in 2008 as a creative outlet between working and studying.

DIY Guest Spot

Have you set any resolutions or goals for 2019? I love having specific goals and writing them down to help with making it a reality. This year I decided to pick a word of the year. If you’re unfamiliar, a word of the year is when you pick a single word to set an intention to ground yourself in as opposed to making a list of a bunch of things to check off. When you’re trying to make decisions or plans, you can refer back to your word of the year as a guide for how to move forward. I have chosen the...
