I really enjoy creating things, but I still haven’t figured out how to avoid being buried under the mountain of my creations. It used to be that I made useful things for specific purposes, like home dec projects and greeting cards. Then I branched out into mixed-media art, bookbinding, apparel sewing, and embroidery.
There’s no space left on the walls to hang art, I’ve given every one of my family and friends more books than they could use in a lifetime, and my closets are already full of clothing.
I have dozens of canvases in various sizes, stacked under beds and hidden in closets:
I tried selling the little books on Etsy, with zero success:
And I have many of the covered notebooks left, even after bestowing them on everyone I could think of:
The obvious answer is to STOP making so much stuff, but it’s the main thing I like to do!
What do you do with your “excess” projects? Rotate them through different rooms? Spring them on friends as “just because” gifts? Sell them at craft fairs? Rent a storage facility?
I would love to know!
