Being raised by depression era parents with phobias of never enough I am being hit with the cold slap of reality of a different nature. It is possible to have too many choices and materials causing the inability to make any decisions about using things. The clutter causes a sort of brain freeze. Had a great idea going in the studio to pull need supplies, instead seeing the mountain of clutter and turning around and leaving.
Finally I snapped and have been rearranging,giving way,throwing away,putting away and generally cleansing my studio of things that no longer reflect who I am now.
It has been a long and sometime scary project but I do see light at the end of the tunnel
Hurrah.... It has also been wonderful seeing my supplies in a new way.
I was lucky enough to find an old metal map cabinet painted it black lined the drawers in that new mesh rubber drawer liner so everything stays in place. I discovered those lovely tins with glass tops to put all of the wee bits and pieces in and I can view all of the goodies in each drawer. Still have a ways to go to finish but things are progressing. Any one else have ideas for organizing supplies?
Of course it would be much easier if I only had one or two interests. HA
I work in warm glass, mettlesome, metalclay artist & teacher, seed bead weaver, enamel artist.
whew also love knitting, sewing and fabric painter. The world is full of so many interesting things how can I choose just one.
tata more to come later
