I have now culled more than 8,000 pieces of paper from my home. Photocopied books and partial books and notes from books have been scanned into PDFs and the paper delivered for recycling. There is still more of that to go, but 8,000 seems like a good start.
After a very chilly day yesterday, today's weather was almost perfect for being in the studio. I spent more than five hours cleaning, organizing, and working on small sewing projects that went into suspended animation when hot weather arrived in early May. These sewing projects are craft items that will be added to my inventory for art shows or listed on my Etsy store. www.etsy.com/shop/AZAngelFeathers
Though my scanner is still being contrary, I've managed to scan the covers, TOCs, and some sample pages of old craft books and magazines to be destashed via the Etsy store. Some go back to the 1970s. I don't need them and they are just taking up room. Though I've only listed a few today, I will continue to add more over the next week or so. Any profits will go toward my Big Decision fund. If they don't sell, I'll probably just donate them to the library.
Tomorrow I have to take Moby down to the vet for a check-up on his arthritis or whatever it is. He loves getting into the car -- and then refuses to get out once we're there. I have to get the techs to help me haul him out when we arrive and lift him back in when we leave, then let him make up his mind when we return home. Last time I think he sat curled in the back seat for half an hour or so before he finally climbed out.
He is twelve and a half -- and 85 pounds -- so I don't force him.
