Clutter Clutter Clutter...
I do realize how fortunate I am to have my very own dedicated studio. I think studio sounds so much better than craft room and since it is my room I shall call it studio. However, I seem to be a pack rat...forever! Not a hoarder but there are things I just hate to part with.
Every time I save cardboard boxes, egg cartons, and such silliness I wonder when, if ever, am I going to use them. So after a while even I get tired of seeing such a clutter mess and throw it all away. Then I miss something and need it and you know how it goes. Of course the today cardboard is never the same as the older cardboard...thinner and flimsy.
Clutter just seems to pile up around me. I try to keep it neatly stacked but then the piles fall all over the floor and I am picking them up and wondering why I save stuff!
My island worktop gets the same clutter disease. This is right after the Christmas holidays and the collision that happens when you are still gathering and wrapping gifts and at the same time putting away from receiving the early swaps and gifts.
Oh yes the clutter. I think I actually enjoy it most of the time. I always have a little treasure hunt to find things and then I have a trip done memory lane when putting things away. How could anyone ever get bored if they have a hobby...or several hobbies?!!
I really enjoyed reading all the comments I got on my last post. I queried about having a plan or just feeling the creativity flow and your response was pretty much down the middle. Some begin with a plan and then let the creativity take its course. I think that is how I roll.
Sunshine is still with us and yesterday was quite nice. The last of our snow and ice is finally melted and gone. It is still very cold but at least the days are getting just a hint of longer daylight time and that is what I love.
May your creativity flow as you enjoy whatever you are making or doing. Creative Hearts are Happy Hearts...
