I continue to work an hour a day on my big studio clean out. It has been a long drawn out process but I am having some good results. I took 10 boxes of stuff this week and donated them to charity! My goal is to continue this one hour a day until October 9th when the Ikea Space Challenge ends with www.Instructables.com. On that day I am going to declare that I am finished except for getting the new furniture and setting it up. I will then have a general maintenance plan so that it never gets like this again.
I have learned from this experience that I have been living with the leftovers of my school teacher mentality. My years of using parts of my salary to provide supplies for my students taught me to live in a state of lacking. My mindset has been there will never be enough supplies so I should save and reuse. I have learned this past year that I prefer to live in a State of Abundance! So I am sharing my wealth with others who may need it and I am looking forward to winning the contest. I can finally have the studio I always wanted! I have cut out pictures for years of what I would like for my studio and it's very interesting, the look is always the same. I didn't even know Ikea existed yet!
Two days ago I had a visitor in my studio who startled me with his unannounced presence. I went to lift a box and there he was and moving fast! I thought I would add his photo to the updated photos of my space so you can see him. He 's a pretty good looking guy and it is fun to watch him change colors when he blends in with a new background! I prefer no more surprises though!
