Letting Go 15 = 2015!

Happy New Year and as the Yorubas will say "Eku odun, eku iyedu o", . 
 It has been a great 2014 and I shared half of it with you with my blogging before I stopped cold mid year. I must confess, the trip to South Africa was awesome and so many things to share that I was rendered helpless as to the best way to blog about it. This helplessness led to inaction and the partial post never completed. I look forward to it completion and posting in the near future!

In the past I have made resolution with my key "one word" but this year, I am trying to face a weakness of mine. This is really big for me to be transparent about this problem ...that is letting go of things.   I must confess, I have a common artist disease of keeping items with intentions of incorporating into my art.  This condition has boiled over to other areas of my life and everything I have, I visualized artistic usage for it hence keeping it for future use.
one of the 15 items letting go- storage maybe!
one of the 15 items letting go-was planning on using for collages!
 God only knows when that will be so recently I was inspired by Tracy Verdugo purging of 10 items a day.  She was doing this for about a month and that go me thinking!  As part of my new year resolutions I will be letting go 15-items  and do it for 30 days and hopefully extend it further. 
one of the 15 items letting go..don't ask what i was keeping this for!

Thirty days will give me baby steps and let me take it one month at a time!
I challenged you in joining me in letting go. The item(s) could be 1 , 2, 5, 8, 10, 15, 20, 21,  25, using number combinations from 2015!  Chime in, would love to hear from you and let us be supportive of each other!

I think that is a wonderful idea! I would like to Join you in this project. Hmm where would I start? can we start in my cloths closet or the hall closet? Perhaps my husbands storage shed. LOL I would do it in my studio, it may be a little more challenging to start there though. I will start this weekend.

Thank you Adeola for your inspiration and your beautiful art. Veronica, Printmaker

Adeola! I saw Tracy Verdugo doing this as well. Great minds and hearts think alike, huh? Imagine my home...we have THREE artists under one roof. Aye~ I am going to consider this. Might be just what I need! Thanks for sharing and welcome back to your lovely blog!
