Once upon a time...I had a large studio apartment above a garage to use as my studio space. I felt free to collect all sorts of papers, do-dads, and every art material that was ever on sale.
Then we made the smart decision to down-size. We wanted a simpler life, knowing that with both of our daughters were about to fly the nest, a large home was not practical. So when the chance came to move into a smaller-family-owned home we jumped at the opportunity. After spending a great deal of time sorting, tossing and purging ourselves of excess, we were settled into our cozy home.
That was almost two years ago. This past month I began a very deep clean of our home and am still coming across many do-dads and materials that I have not used since the bid down-sizing. It is amazing how things accumulate and seems to 'stick'.
