I’ve been sorting through everything. My life!
Throwing away, saving, folding, browsing, sorting. For weeks now. I’ve realized I’m a horrible pack-rat and I shouldn’t buy anything for the next three years or so. I’ve given away books, sold papers at etsy and gone through piles of magazines and only saved the images that I want for collage. The rest went into the paper recycle bin! Off you go, paper trash!
I can’t belive this is my life, this messy, dirty, dusty life?
The entire apartment makes me dizzy right now. Boxes and stuff everywhere! I’m glad I got the chanse to sort through my papers before the piles grew over my head, but I can’t understand how it got this way? It’s like something (me?) exploded in here. And so you know; when you find rolls of wall paper don’t store them in the basement. Then they will never be used, only take up shelf space and collect dust. Take what you need and move on! And if you buy second hand books because you like the covers and want to turn them into notebooks, don’t put them in a paper bag behind the arm chair. Then you’ll forget you have them and go buy even more vintage books! Cut them up and make a book – then sell it! Books will be up at the shop soon too! Plus more collage packs of vintage book papers! Nag me if I don’t put it up for sale soon!
From this day forward I promise to only buy things I think I will use in the following couple of days. Books I will read now, or else not buy them.
And I found three collage prints that I’m putting up in my Etsy Shop now! Check them out, they are some of my favorite ones. There is Cat Owl, Extra glans and Tea Party! They will look great in a frame on your wall. Special price: If you get all three at the same time I’ll give you 5 dollar off! Just let me know you are a blog friend before you pay.
I found the most adorable girl/video/art at youtube. Go watch You Are Deeply Loved now!
Learn that “you might not have a lot going on in your life (which is sooo true about my life), but in your notebook/on canvas your life can be wild” or something like that. I don’t know about my canvas, but I like the message. And Suzi who made it has a whole set of cute stuff over there; suzieblue. I didn’t even know you could have “a page of your own” at YouTube! Cool stuff!
Watch the video, her style and art is so cute!
