**********sPriNg cLeaNinG*********

I love collecting bits and pieces for making art and because I like working with lots of different media and techniques my 'stash' has got a little bit out of control. Over the next few months I'm going to sort it all out and hopefully use a lot of it up and I'm hoping that this blog ritual will help discipline myself a bit more and stick to what I have said I am going to do. This will be especially difficult as the car boot season will start again soon and there are so many irresistable things to buy for tiny prices. I'd love to hear from anyone who has any top tips for a tidy workspace :o)

As I do lots of mixed media I also have a lot of different kinds of stuff. My system isn't very fancy but it does help me find things. What I do is put like with like. SO all the papers are sorted by colour/texture, I have a folder for specialised papers/surfaces, I have a box for buttons, another for beads, another for ribbons, one for ink pads, one for paints, one for stamps etc etc. The thing I struggle with is that this only really works if you put things away once you've finished with them!
