That's what I asked everyone as they walked through my ART Room last night LOL "Oh WOW!!! Do you feel that????" For a while now...I've not enjoyed being in my ART Room even when I do get a little time to get in there. Just blah ....lack of energy, no flow and just felt boxed in. So yesterday I was thinking how much I'd love to have a table and chairs in there where myself and others could sit and create...if someone wanted to stop by and ART or if one of the kids want to come in there and ART with me. Then I laugh at the thought....I have so much stuff crammed into the old framing table that is my work table. Not going to happen!!! So anyway talking to Sam yesterday I realize I've not felt good in there or churned out the happy ART since I started accumlating so many treasures and putting them on my work table so I could easily get to them. Here's a before picture... Ok actually it had gotten worse... a whole level on top of these containers...so was even higher...but can't find a photo of how it was before last night.
so last night started clearing my table. Got everything off except for one container of small papers on the end of the table. AHHHHHHHHHHHHHH Instantly I could feel an AMAZING ENERGY in the room. It was such a WONDERFUL open and free feeling!!So EXCITED!!!! So now all I need is to buy a stool or two for anyone that wants to ART with me (may even treat myself to a stool with a back LOL). and this AHHHHH feeling has inspired me to go through each drawer and container one by one and reduce the volume of what I have. There are so many things in my room that I don't use before I dare not open the crammed tight drawer or container!!! If I want to make a wood block....yipes...no way...that's at the bottom of that drawer stuffed full of wood....or I want the piece of vintage trim...I know exactly where it is...in the back of the drawer behind those trims...where it stays because I'm not going to dig for it :( Sad huh!! I've reached the point that I have to realize...I buy the things I buy because I want to create ART with them...if I have so many "treasures" stacked and crammed into things that I can't even get to the "treasure" anymore...then it's no longer a "treasure"!! I will try from now on to remember...buy the things I love and want to use...use the things I loved enough to gather!!! There is no joy in hoarding the things that inspired me enough to buy and create with them in the first place. :) There will always be new treasures to gather!!
So here you go...new pictures of my work table and ART space!! "OH WOW, Can you feel it???"
AHHHHH, I can. Hoping each container and drawer I clean out will make it feel even better!!!!! WOO HOO
