I'll never forget the first time a client introduced me to SoulCollage (R) cards. She showed me some of the intricate collages she had made, each about the size of a tissue box, and carefully encased in a cellophane cover. The images were mesmerizing, delicately cut out and layered. She explained how the cards represented parts of her life, and some of the insights she was gleaning from them. I was dumbstruck, and I knew I had to learn more about it.
If you're like me, you looooove getting more art supplies, or hold on to things that could be used someday! The problem is when you have too much stuff, it's hard to find, use, or enjoy what you have. I made this video to talk about some of the solutions for "hoarding" (or just having a lot) of craft supplies.
Like a lot of creative people, I enjoy Pinterest, but it’s a double edged sword. Those beautiful and compelling pictures of gorgeous playrooms, detailed party favors, and adorable cupcakes can quickly send me into the zone of “why bother?- mine will never look that good!” I even sometimes become resentful of people who have the time and resources to make the things I see on Pinterest.
