A few days ago, I felt adventurous and was able to take stairs. I went into my basement studio to see if there might be a tiny project I could start or finish. My stomach sank as I looked into a room that might be featured on Hoarders. I need an intervention.
|I promise all family pets are accounted for.|
The problem is trifold. 1) I accept other people's craft "donations," 2) I love to buy new supplies, and 3) I keep anything that could be collaged, painted, or sewn (roughly anything that will not rot or attract wildlife.) The problem: I feel trapped creatively.
|At least I've got some bin action!|
The only solution: Craft My Way Out (or CraMWO)
Here are the rules of CraMWO:
1) No new supplies. I am allowed to replenish the basics such as matte gel medium or black thread. But no new fabric or paper or gadgets!
2) No trip to JoAnn's, Michael's, or Blick without a list of specific items (see stipulations in Number 1.)
Stay tuned and wish me luck as I wade through years of "treasures."
