Hard to believe it has taken 4 weeks but there is only a tiny bit of dimness at the end of the tunnel. Fabrics have been cut by 2/3, the rest donated. Trash sorted, 6 giant bags of recycled papers and scraps have gone away, other craft supplies taken to the studio to be used up there.
I finally have the most organized paper storage I have ever had. One big tub for rolled painted papers, 4 bins filled with vintage, tissue, scrap/printed and hand made papers.
I saved one bag of recycle just to use up for mail art and I feel a huge sense of lightness as the home studio begins to become functional again. Ruthlessness has replaced thrift in my realization that there is only so much you can save, only so much you can use and the rest just plain gets in your way and prevents you from feeding the hunger of creation.
I like that I know what is there and where it is and can easily put things away but have materials just at the tip of my fingers.
A bit more to go – putting the paints in better order and the like, but I am mostly done. Feeding my creative hunger, feeding my soul. It’s a good day.
