The rain is tumbling down, the skies are gray, and I'm sitting here clipping words and images from magazines before they hit the recycle bin. These bit and pieces will find their way into journals, collages, and the like. An old Ikea catalog sits front and center on the stack of soon to be tossed periodicals, a catalog used mainly for backdrop for gluing purposes.
And, as the pile of snipped bits grew larger, it hit me that there seemed to be quite a bit of life wisdom here hiding in the advertising come on, you need this, pile of words. Just take a minute and study the photo...
All of it seems good advice to me; each bit could spark a blog post of its own, and I suspect they just might do so in the future.
But, it's rainy, and I'm feeling utterly lazy, so I'll pick just one.
Inspiration can strike at any time.
Yup - even in the pages of an old IKEA catalog.
P.S. I am working on the cluttering bit by the way. Goodwill and I are excellent friends, seeing each other frequently.
