Oh, for the love of Scissors!
I couldn’t have imagined that this Challenge would bring me so much joy! As I’m sure most people did, I started by looking around our home to see how many pairs of scissors we own and discovered that we have rather an abundance! Interestingly, almost every pair of scissors we own are made by Fiskars which seems to have become a household name in our home, even without intentionally making it so.

Artists can do better
There's something hugely exciting about a newly purchased sketchbook. It seems to offer unlimited hope and potential, opportunities and exploration. But all too often the pristine white pages of a new sketchbook stay exactly that way, often for months and even years, as the unused sketchbook gets added to the ever-increasing pile of other unused art supplies. As an emerging artist, I understand the deep need for my art supplies to become my closest companion and to be employed regularly to record, interact with, and document the world around me. I know undeniably that they are my best friend and faithful ally in providing the self care, mind distraction and creative expression my heart yearns for; but more often than I would care to mention, my stacks of unused art supplies have become elements of excessive clutter and unnecessary consumerism.
So many new paths, Too many to choose. What colour is waiting? Which one will I use? . The options are endless, Each choice brings delight,
On the spectrum, in a spectrum. A collision of colours. Curiously I watch from the outside. It's hard to find a way in.
