The Pain of Throwing Things Out

Topics: giant messes, potential, throwing stuff out

Lately, I have been working on several projects at once--a doll for a friend, rose beads to make a necklace with, books, photography, discovering collage, and whatnot.

If the craft books are to be believed, each and every one of these crafts requires a room of its own.

They don't have one. (Who here really does have the space "needed" for their work?)

Normally, they share space happily enough, but then, normally, I stick to one project at a time.

I didn't this time, and the result was a predictable mess--nay, a catastrophe.

I finally finished a couple of the projects and decided to do some cleaning up.

The results were satisfactory, but it did involve actually throwing some things out.

Does anyone else have any idea how hard that is? It's not scraps of paper and bits of cloth--it's potential collage and homemade paper! It's not an old jam jar, it's a brush holder, a bead container, a paste-paint holder...

It was all I could do not to chase after the garbage truck when it came by.
