But, in order to make room for those crates on your shelves, you have to consolidate something else.
And, in order to make room for the new tools and supplies you never knew you needed before, then you have to purge something else. Before you know it, you've reworked every single shelf, drawer and cabinet in the room!
But that's a good thing, isn't it? Because it helps you to focus on what is truly useful and makes you really, really happy, and to eliminate that which is just taking up space.
When I took my very first art class on-line, I had an instructor who was mad for scrapbook paper and ephemera.
and my hand-carved stamps, which I hope to be doing a lot more of!
So, for those of you who were wondering just what I am planning to do with that rainbow of papers I painted, first on the list is this...
completing that toucan, the second project from my Paper Painting Collage workshop with Elizabeth St. Hilaire. I consider both this and the apple to be my practice projects, and probably the last ones I'll ever do on canvas, since, believe me, the last thing we need in this house is any more stuff to hang on the walls!

it would have to be Barcelona, would it not?
