My life is an unwritten To Do List.
As I move around my home there are little vignettes of clutter; reminders of things I should be attending to:
- A pile of drawing and painting books I’ve borrowed from the library – on watercolour and drawing buildings
- The open sketchbook, watercolour paints and brushes, and basil plant on my desk – I’m trying to paint a basil leaf in various consistencies of Sap Green watercolour for an Anna Mason Art School tutorial
- Images for Colette Wardrobe Architect Week 2 – for a vision board of my five defining words
Sift through a few shelves and drawers in my studio and you will find:
- New and half-finished sketchbooks – and diaries and brochures that will also become sketchbooks
- Pencils, paints and collage materials
- Knitting yarn, fabric remnants, knitting and sewing patterns
- Plus loads of inspiration
I’m excited just thinking about the possibilities! But, I have to be realistic, I have way more than I need and some of these things don’t seem so relevant to me anymore. But before I embark on another decluttering spree, I want to try something else. I’d like to start again. I’d like to craft a new life that reflects the person I want to be, and then see if everything fits. I have a few ‘roadmaps’ to try, so we’ll see where they take me.
