End-of-the-Year School Papers & Artwork Got You Overwhelmed?

Here’s a tip to try – Pare down the duplicates, scratch papers, & practice pages as soon as you can & then collect the rest in one place. In late August, as you are preparing to start off the next year, take a minute to remember & wrap up the last one.

Offering a little time & space between when the work was created & the decisions, can make the letting go easier.
