Your Cart is Empty

We all do it. We come to the end of the year, get through the holidays and then look around our homes and our lives, and reflect on we’d like to change.  Maybe even take on a thousand piece purge.
I travel over the half the year.  Can you imagine what my closet looks likes after coming and going a dozen times? How about my office?  Would you like to see what I’m looking at today?  Yep, that close up shows just one 24” square on my desk.

One Bite at a Time...the Thousand Piece Purge

Fortunately, I came up with a way to tackle both studio and home without the need to vomit or cry.  I call it Q’s 1,ooo Piece Purge.  You can begin on any day of any year.  The objective is to remove 1,000 pieces of unneeded detritus from your life.  Furthermore, keeping count on a piece of paper is extremely satisfying.
Almost empty shampoo bottles, clothes that have not been worn in a year, old jars of stale spices, the lonely sock that seems to come back from every ship trip….out, out, out with it.  It feels so good  -- which may be the attraction -- it’s almost like weight loss.

Thousand Piece Purge...a Yearlong Love Affair

Above all, it can be done over the course of the entire year.  Just chipping away with satisfaction.  I promise you will find it addicting, too.  (Give me a shout if you master and enjoy this.  Above all,  I can give you the next steps for purging more).

What is beauty? The most obvious phrase that comes to mind is “beauty is in the eye of the beholder.” Simple right? But the more I think about this, the more I’ve come to realize that “Beauty is in the mind of the beholder.”
