Making an effort!

I promised myself I would do several things differently this upcoming new year.
1. work on my blog more
2. concentrate on putting more work on Esty & Ebay maybe have a selling site.
3. take few classes to learn new techniques
4. Clean my studio, which is a total wreck, actually that should be number one!
5. and finally get rid of excess junk.

I am sure those of you who are artists, will understand number 5. The "I may be able to use that" attitude that keeps me from throwing away anything I think might have use for somewhere down the road. Since I am a cancer this is even worse for me as I can't seem to part with anything! I currently have broken pottery, thinking I might be inspired to do a mosaic of some sort one day. hmmmm yeah that ain't gonna happen!

I have been saving toilet issue rolls for some time now, and while I do haul them out and create some darling little 4Th of July pieces and Halloween candy tube thingies , let's be reasonable here , how likely is it that I would experiance a shortage of those?

I have tons of floral picks, I hate flower arranging, what was I thinking? I save boxes, tissue and packing wrap. I have patterns that I haven't even opened. I 'm thinking spring cleaning craft sale on EBAY.
My husband, who is a notorious neat freak, refuses to place one toe into my studio, he totally doesn't understand how I can work in such utter chaos and to top it off , I have been sorting through material so the guest bedroom is sort of disaster too. Now I am getting the LOOK. If I don't start getting the guest room in order I am sure I will soon get the Look and the complaints! Sigh! I have successfully put him off for now as I have told him that I gathering things for end of the year donations. oops! almost outta time on that one! Guess I really need to kick it into high gear tomorrow! Off for now! ~susan~

Oh my gosh Susan, I could have written that ... word for word! Right down to the bedroom overflow and the overly neat hubby who won't step into the studio. And the 'someday' collections. LoL It's an Art Thing.
Happy New Year & best of luck:)
