I wanted to tackle a little project in the art studio, so I decided to go through these three shelves. I picked them because they’re the only ones I can reach.  I was able to pack up 2 boxes of books to donate. There were some craft books on making jewelry with seed beads (too tedious), calligraphy (my BFF “T” is an excellent calligrapher if I ever need some lettering done) and some new age psychic yahoo books that are so low on my reading list that they’ve been wasting shelf space for years. The other books I got rid of were organizing books. They haven’t helped yet, in fact I find their presence damn annoying, so it’s time for them to go.

Before.

Before.

After.

After.

I kept most of my drawing and painting books, most of my jewelry making books, and a few tarot books. Not bad for about 15 minutes of work.

Stay tuned…
