Then I moved onto my studio space where I store everything I love. For some reason, there’s never a spot to put my feet or a safe place to turn around. I have yet to be able to purge this creative haven.
Tidying by category is supposed to work like magic. But in her book she never addresses a craft studio space! What about yarns, beads, needles, fabric buttons, and accessories? She gives the advice to only hang onto those items that we love and that spark joy, and we love all these things, don't we?
Where our joy lives
I know one thing for sure, that gnawing, disorganized studio may not be really as important as the next exciting project. The one that gets our juices flowing, shakes us up and really gets us excited. The one that gets us out of bed in the morning!
Gratitude and appreciation
So another Spring back at the drawing board! I have an attitude of gratefulness and of appreciation for all that we "get to do" rather than "have to do".
I hope you have a chance this Spring to stop by, say “Hello,” and see the "Next Best Thing" we have to offer to you! Oh, and if you have any suggestions for tidying, please let me know. [wink]
