OK, sometimes it's hard to admit to your faults, but it is what it is so here
is one of mine.


I think I may have inherited it from my  Dad, he couldn't throw anything
away either., he even reused the wax paper packaging the cereal comes in..

 I'm sitting here in my little art studio/computer room looking around. 
So much stuff, so little room.  Being an artist helps add to the clutter, I
have so many cool things to work with and art involves lots of stuff ! 
Frames I have been saving for artwork yet to come, pieces of projects past but
you may never know when you might need that again , STUFF I keep

Then I think about the kitchen.

I have so many kitchen tool, real cool ones from all the years I worked as a
chef in fancy restaurants. I continue to keep them, but most of the stuff just
doesn't get used that often and some I am embarrassed to say, never.

Stuff I keep

 It just seem a waste to just get rid of it. What is one to do ?

How do you really de clutter ???

Looking for answers if you have them , PLEASE send them to me ASAP

Learning to Draw

My Granddaughter, Katy who is 5 1/2 years old, has been coloring since she
was about 12 months old.  Grandma, me, gave her crayons at a very early
age.  I am an artist and she always watched me drawing and painting and of
course she wanted to do it too .Now that she is getting older she wants to learn
more.  This week she asked me to teach her to draw a face.  So we both
got out our pencils and paper and we started with an oval. The pictures here are
our first attempt  on drawing a face.  I think she is doing pretty
well for the first time . I found this other drawing on my desk after she went
home, looks like she was practicing her shading.. I am very pleased that her
crayons, Crayola of course, and art set are her favorite toys. She got a big
beautiful art set for Christmas from her great grandmother, which of course was
her favorite  gift of the year ! She will play with art supplies over any
video game and what a great thing when a child learns to use their imagination 
which is a rare things in today's world. When my catalog arrives , we
both can't wait to sit and read it together. For those of you who don't know, it is an art supply house that has just about anything  you
could ever want in art supplies, our wish catalog ! Hope you all enjoy the
unspoiled art of a child as Katy progresses on her journey. - Online Art Supplies
