Saturday I got some more accomplished on my task to declutter my studio.
Who am I kidding? Clutter sounds so trivial, like a paper here, a pencil there. No, I meant I was determined to completely go through everything in the studio and purge it of things that I am no longer using. For me, that takes some brain effort! I have to actually think about each object, or at least each group of objects, and realistically determine if I will actually ever use that item in the future. Some things are pretty easy, others are more difficult. Ideally, I’m the type of person who wants to use everything! Truthfully, I am at the point where I want to fine tune my interests, and therefore my supplies.
So Saturday afternoon I started working on the far corner of my studio which had gotten stacked up high with partially completed projects and all sorts of items that needed a home.
So, progress was made! At least I dealt with a lot of things that were under the tables and on the ironing board. But after a couple hours, my newly cleaned worktable (see proof above) was covered with more things to put away, and the two chairs that are theoretically meant for visitors (see below) were filled with more things to put away or get rid of. That made me tired! So, I stopped and watched a movie.
Today is a new day! I might have an hour or two today, so I’m going to put away some of that stuff. The first thing to do is carry out all the things I want to sell or give away or throw away. That should help!
Later this week, I need to purge all those little drawers in the card catalog units and, if I am really energetic, I really should address the boxes on top of the cupboards and bookshelves. Yikes! Maybe not…we’ll see.
