I spent a lot of this week cleaning out the studio and boxing up things that could be useful to others. Every so often I feel the need to weed things out and restore a sense of calm in my creative space. As creative types we all "see the potential" in so many things others would pass by. We are collectors and experimenters, we are savers and inventors. I reached back into the far corner of the bottom cabinet and found Fimo and Sculpey that dated back to my daughter's teen obsession with the clay. I think it might still be ok because it was still flexible. Who knew? I got her permission (she's now almost 33 and has no real interest in making beads any more) to give it to anyone who would take it. I came across little paper treasures from my kids, pictures of my family and all in all these made the hot dirty work of cleaning up much more enjoyable. Have you mucked out your creative space recently? What treasures did you find?
PS: If you missed the "Bits & Pieces" post I did a while ago, it's not too late. Go back and read it and you can get in on the fun.
