A big clean out day - Donating to my local high school art honor society

I walked into the studio today, with a full day of ideas planned....and then...I just couldn't take it any longer! Have you ever had a mess so big, that you had to clean it up just to make another mess even bigger?

I looked around and saw hundreds of things I hadn't used in a year, some weren't even out of the package and other things were just gently loved.

Being that Art programs in our high schools are on a tight budget...and really have no budget at all to work with, I called the local high school art department and talked to the director of the Art Honor Society for Ozark High School.

She was thrilled when I told her I was cleaning out my studio. I was thrilled that she wanted the donation! Im glad that the products are going to the school and I can't wait to see what the kids do with all of them.

It was kinda of a blast from the past today....found some classic molds from the early 80's that were made by AMACO. Kinda fun to dig out stuff you never knew you had...

Unfortunately only half the studio was the other side, including my workspace shall await my arrival tomorrow.....

I'm glad to see I am not the only creative person who needs to do a little Spring cleaning! I did the same thing when I expanded my own studio and it feels nice to donate craft supplies to new homes where the supplies will get used!
