Just a few pages from my little book.
January is almost gone and I have to admit, I’m a little worried for the upcoming Thing-a-day starting February 1st. I haven’t been spending much time in my art studio lately. It’s a combination of it just being cluttered and needing rearrangement. I get really inspired to do something, walk in to the studio, then turn back around and leave. What I need to do is a HUGE clean sweep and go through all of my art stuff and decide if it something I need, can throw away, donate, or giveaway. I think opening up some space and rearranging the furniture would give it a breath of fresh air and I desperately need that right now. The thing is, it’s sooo hard when you are a paper junkie like I am. Every single sliver of scrap paper can start to have potential. At some point it just becomes too much, and I’d probably be more productive with almost no materials in front of me.
Another thing, I know the Thing-a-Day will help me by just forcing me to be productive everyday. When I go through a dry period, finishing the tiniest of projects seems like such a huge task, but the more I have to do, the more I get done, and the more inspired I am to create.
