Cleaning out?


Sometimes we just have to laugh at our selves! 

This week I spent, maybe, four hours cleaning out drawers and shelves in my craft room…..sorting, reorganizing, straightening, dusting….and I thought destashing!

Really, this is what I removed…by removed I mean, stuff I can live without!

IMG_1996 Yep! Enough to fill a cigar box!

IMG_1997 I really did have to laugh when I realized that this and one wastepaper basket full of trash were all I got rid of……but, what’s left is very organized!

IMG_1992 I know you can tell, just by looking, that everything on these shelves is very, very necessary for art making and MUST be kept because someday I’ll NEED it!IMG_1994

This, by the way, is my “spray paint booth”!  Just a cardboard box with one side removed, I’ve actually seen something similar for sale at an art store.  It comes in very handy for spraying indoors, however, if you’re using oil based spray paint….I’d take it outdoors.  But for water based sprays, it keeps the spray under control and off of your work table, works pretty slick I think.

Next week, I’ll go through a few more drawers and shelves to see if I have another cigar box load of materials I can unload!

I really like your encaustic pictures, the colors, the shapes.

Sounds like what I've been doing lately. It always hits me after Christmas to start cleaning, organizing etc. This years word for myself is 'order' and I feel better when there is some. LOL Have a good day.

Your shelves look both organized and practically empty. I guess I have a ton more stuff, because it looks like you have next to nothing on your shelves. That could be why I'm using up what I have, I guess!

BTW, speaking of getting organized and getting rid of things, I am getting rid of the AB 101 class, since it will now be on my blog. Thought you would like to know.
