Well, my sister came round, and we spent a happy afternoon going through my old art coursework. I created a huge pile of stuff to throw out - things I had done as course projects that were not visually pleasing! And a lot of bits of mount board. (Now these last are in the bin, I wonder if I could have passed them on - better luck next time!) As well as feeling cleaner and clearer about my room, I enjoyed seeing all the work I had put into the course.
This is what's left, which may not look tidy to anyone else, however it is a vast improvement on the previous state:
And this is Sue pointing to all the junk I got rid of! She is a declutter expert.
NB you may recognise this area - the art box is behind this, and the pile of unfinished self-help books featured in previous posts! I am aware I have some way to go to a decluttered house.
As a result of all this activity I feel much better about myself and have a lot more energy - it's amazing what a difference decluttering makes. Onwards and upwards!
