Hoarder?  Me?  kinda, yeah

After 10 years on 44th & Tennyson it happened . . . I’d reached the time and space that a move was the right thing to do, I found a great new space, not far from the old one, great open floor plan, PARKING!  YES OUR OWN PARKING LOT!!!  Our new address is 3735 Ames St, Wheat Ridge, CO 80212.  Its an easy — one block west of Sheridan, on the south side of 38th!  

Of course, it is so exciting . . . then, the realization that all my STUFF, stuff that I’d been accumulating, collecting, filling my little creative nest with eclectic inspiration — all that stuff, had to get sifted through, and packed up, and many trips to the new location to once again create a cozy, crazy, inspirational nest of creative nurturing. This was gonna have to also include some hard decisions of keeping and letting go! Overwhelmed is an understatement, but with the help of many friends, students, family I got it done, and am thrilled to say lightened the load -- although you wouldn’t believe it if I told you just how much STUFF I let go of when you see how beautiflly full the new space is with wonderfully inspiring things and stuff and it feels just like home!

So, yes, I admit it, I am a hoarder, of beautifully odd, and inspiring, things.  Things that when I look at them start to write stories in my my mind, that my hands must then complete in clay.  Things that spark ideas for workshops and classes, or that simply just make me smile to be around.  These things are like the jumper cables you make sure you have in your car, 'cause you never know when you might need a jump start.  However, I have also learned I need to temper my collecting, not let things continually accumulate without occasional  review and yes, letting go . . . and I’ve laid down some new rules that I need to follow . . . wish me luck!
