Narrow my focus

How much “stuff” do I need anyway? During this transition period I have begun to take the advice of several people who make their living helping people get organized. Today I am taking some things to the PAQA meeting in the hopes they will find new homes and be an inspiration to other mixed-media artists. I certainly will never use them all myself !!!.

samples I think I’ve had them at least 20 years. I used to work for a decorating firm selling franchises and willingly accepted these treasured gifts from the decorators when the vendors replaced them with new sample books. One summer I painstakingly ironed & folded them all to fit sweater size storage boxes to sit on my shelves. Over the years I have used some of them, but now recognize it’s time to share the wealth with others.

I completely understand your desire to keep these treasures over the years. but you are right, time to pass them on to others. Makes me think I need to do some purging too!
