end of year reorganization

a place for paper images 
Pretty vintage accordian folder found at estate sale for $1

Working full time has found me in a state of disorganization. 
Wading through my   mess  has caused angst and inability to create.

a lot of good and some useless collage ephemera for art & inspiration 

My level of frustration reached it's limit. Today I have been in my art room doing major clean up.
Boy does it feel good. Going through my paper images include stamps I have saved from far away places, magazine words and pictures that made me "feel" something, pretty papers, sparkling things, vintage bits and quotes.

A quote I found today that really resonated:
"You are one of us said the tree to the axe handle"

All in all I feel pretty good nearing the end of 2011....
especialy looking back on it from a clean space.
