Out With the Old, In With the New

I've finally come to the conclusion that I have to clear out a lot of my old stuff. There is so much that accumulates over the years. I organize it and put it in boxes but then what? 
So it has to go.
And what a struggle that presents! 
I've always worked in very tiny spaces making do with just a little square surface space while things pile up around me. You'dthink I'd be claustrophobic; but not.
I wonder if I'm just one of those 
who needs the mess to inspire the work? 
See what I mean? I've been working on Summer Hats for Kids: a new project I'm quite excited about. This is just a prototype. But just look at the stuff all over my work space. And yet that seems to inspire me. 
 Nevertheless, wish me luck in my endeavors to "Out With the Old, And In With the New.


  1. Looking at your pictures I thought for a moment I was looking at my craft room. My mess inspires me. But I also know I'm going to have to do some de-cluttering. Good luck!

  2. I love the hats! So refreshing to see after so many dreary days. Happy 2012!
