Travel card and yearly organizing

I have a huge bin full of scrap papers.  I took several papers out of the bin that looked good together to make this card.  I needed to make a swap card on the theme of Travel.  I used the die cut figure with the umbrella as the traveler.  I really need to get into my scrap bin more often to use up the papers. 

I have been trying to simplify my life by going through all cabinets, drawers, and closets to declutter and organize.  I have totally reorganized my craft room so that it is easier to access all of my craft items when I am creating.  I also went through all of my books and have set aside a bunch to sell at a yard sale that my community does in the Spring.  I took 3 huge bags of clothes to Goodwill a few weeks ago.  Now I am working on my kitchen and already have 3 bins full of stuff that I will probably also sell at the yard sale.  I am only half way done.  I also did this to my jewelry a month ago and have a bunch of things to sell also.  I am working on better ways to organize the things that I am keeping.  I started this last year and went through everything.  It is amazing that as I do it again this year, I am finding so much more to get rid of.  I would have thought that I was done from last year when I got rid of a ton of stuff.  I am really looking forward to getting this all done.
