Ann-Marie L. - Part 2

I have also been cleaning up my studio: my biggest issue is the growing binder and folders related to my mom’s care and finances that live on my floor, causing me stress and distraction.  I reorganized those, tucked them under one easel and it feels better.  Hopefully when I do my book shelves they can live there.  In the fall someone recommended reading “The Life Changing Magic of Tidying up” by Marie Kondo.  It is a sweet and very helpful book that goes along quite well with Lesson 4.  Here is a quote: “I am convinced that putting your house in order will help you find the mission that speaks to your heart”. WOW!

I am posting one of my collage sketches that inspired me and the small piece I have been working on.  I was thinking of impermanence and then worked with limitations in terms of materials.  Trying not to be too judgmental- but I think I it needs more work, maybe more stitch not sure.  I am often conflicted between very minimalist and more detailed work.  I work mostly small but usually think big. Hmm.  I can’t wait to sit down later and see what everyone has posted.  I wish we were having show and tell in person and drinking tea!
