My Personal Challenge
Don't let the colorful and organized display of craft supplies fool you. My "studio" is far from being in the order that I desire.
Although I have two large work surfaces in my room, the actual size of my work area gets smaller by the day. I'll work on a project, leave my materials sitting out, start a new project, leave those items out and the vicious cycle starts. Every once in a while, I'll go up there and spend a few hours getting things back into place, but purging things doesn't really happen.
I have art supplies that I have purchased and never used. I have items that my generous art buddies have given me over the years. I even have somethings that I used to use with my children when they were little (they are now 23 and 24 years old).
Today I just worked on cleaning out a few drawers. I discovered that I had 13 shaped scissors. No wonder my top drawer would not open! I had several knitting needles of various sizes. Since I only know how to make scarves, I decided that I could stand to get rid of a few. I had a crochet hook and I don't even know how to crochet. I lost count of the punches that I had, but I know that I have not used these smaller ones in years. I will never miss this bright assortment of materials.
Maybe they will bring a little joy to someone who is just building their art supply.
