I'm finishing projects left undone- like this hand stamped organic pillow from years ago. I finally stuffed it with wool and lavender and hand stitched it with an invisible seam this morning. DONE! Ready to be mailed off to someone I love so much... especially since she was the one who always told me to finish a task and move on.
As I'm going through my studio, I'm coming across many projects that need completing. I've made some rules for myself... perhaps they will help you if and when you do some clearing of your creative spaces.
-If I want to finish it, I must do so by the month's end. Get it done!
-If I am on the fence... it's "outa" here!
-If any part of a project weighs me down- it's definitely "outa" here!
This process eliminates so much that I've tucked aways for a rainy day. Holding onto OLD ideas with such a crazy grip is tiring and takes up valuable real estate in my mind and my studio.
I will admit- this is by far the hardest room to practice letting go. It tests me constantly. But I'm now so familiar with being challenged, that I'm handling it with a bit more grace than I used to. At the very least, it keeps me on my toes! Hope you have a BEAUTIFUL weekend!
