So I am an upcycling artist.
What ? Explain please …
That means that I create artworks and beautiful artistic objects using a lot f things YOU would have trashed, binned or discarded … (at least I choose to think so! Go and have a look on my shop page or here for the artworks and shoot me a comment if you agree … or not)
I am also on a path to more abundance in my life, to manifesting more love, health and success in my life…
More about that some other time, suffice it to say … I love you Denise Duffield-Thomas … I love you too Gay Hendricks … Seriously, more about that later (oh my Goddess I realize I have a humongous load of things I want to write about … Feeling so abundant!!)
Anyway … I have a problem … In order to upcycle, I have to actually KEEP trash… And everyone agrees that in order to manifest more abundance (more money to put it bluntly!) one has to DECLUTTER !
See the problem ?
I decided on a way to handle this problem… I AM decluttering anything in my life that is NEVER going to be used in any kind of art (old clothes, my kids toys, useless papers, etc) and, considering I have a house that is 1000m² (yes, I know, bu it is also a B&B !) there is a pretty giganormous mountain of decluttering going on!
BUT I keep, sort and organize (I looooove organizing, I know … It can be considered an mental illness!) anything that rings an arty bell, that gives me an idea of a creation …
As you can imagine … that mountain is also quite ginormous …
And it has to live quite close to where I create because it is inspiration …
Thus my creative space is … full. Crowded ? Messy ? Ugly ? Trashy ?
This is a photo taken from my chair.
That is what I’m looking at when I work.
Sure , as you can see, there is a lot. But the “trash into art” stuff is … BEHIND me!
I choose VERY CAREFULLY what I look at every second of my working hour …
Beauty, inspiration, healing stuff, crystals, artworks I love, rainbow colors, flowers, candles … my lucky gold coin, plus my BEAUTIFUL “informed water chakras colored water bottle” i9 (please ask about that, I’ll tell you all about it, I loooooove it!).
What are YOU looking at ?
It’s so little work and care to create a view of beauty” for yourself … and it changes EVERYTHING!
I keep saying that, I know, broken record but Beauty will change the world. It changed mine, it can change yours.
Sending love, light and gratitude,
