As much as I want to be working on new art in my studio, I feel that I have unpacking looming large in the garage. About 90% of my stuff has been moved here, and as I go through boxes it is evident that much of this stuff hasn't been looked at in six years or more. Shocking what we brought here, like three boxes of magazines that I didn't even know we were saving. Seriously. I have loaded my car with stuff for recycling at Staples, and to donate to Goodwill, and that is just a teeny bit of what is left.
Here is a box of my quilt ribbons. I never even think about these, so why am I saving them? I am NOT sentimental. So I put them on the wall and took a good photo of the group and then I am putting them in the trash.
I also found a bunch of frames that I bought before we moved away from our nearest IKEA. Most of the glass got broken on the way here. The matting is not acid-free, so what will I do with them? I guess, tossing those is next. It is grueling to make these decisions, based on my past bad decisions, but I will feel much better when it is out of the garage and out of my storage space.
What I have learned again, for the umpteenth time is that I have everything already, but just can't remember where I put it.
