That feeling of starting something new, along with a change in the air, well I just love it.
Not that school is literally starting for me, but I have made plans for this Autumn so it does feel a little like that. Some of the plans are one off workshops, others slightly longer taking a couple of weeks.
In preparation for all of this learning I set to last night and started some jobs that have been bugging me for, well for months really. The hours I've sat thinking about sorting through paperwork, organising boxes and tins and trays, but just couldn't push myself to even start it all.
Last night was different; starting with random papers stuffed into a basket, moving on to filing and - even more satisfying - throwing away great piles of it!
Which has meant there is space to bring things together ready for those workshops.
Though I keep noticing more and more things to do - which is great this time around; feels as though I'm ready for all of this. Like the top and bottom pictures really - you start off with pretty pencils needing a good sharpening, and you end up with a photo you love!
