I was cleaning up my work space and had a good chuckle. I have three different mason jars with over 25 paint brushes in each jar. One jar for fine brushes, another with medium brushes and another with larger brushes. Then another jar with all kinds of fancy tools. The reality is these in the pictures are my most used and favorite tools.
Whatever industry we work in we always have that favorite tool. A favorite pen, a favorite briefcase. I even have a favorite leather folder I take to meetings when working with clients. It has blank paper and of course my favorite pens.
What is in your toolbox of favorites? What kind of business are you in that requires special favorite tools? Today I was looking at all the paint brushes and asking myself why I have so many. Every summer I teach a summer art camp for kids and all these extra brushes are used.
Mine, a paint brush from Home Depot, a dish scrubber from Dollar Tree, and all the others from the art store. All contributing to Art You Love. I Absolutely love painting. I love that my children grew up with the dining room table covered in crafts, paints, and all kinds of tools to create.
Dear parents, please have a space in your home that is always ready for your children to go and just create. I promise you that you will have a lifetime of little treasures just by providing the tools.
Be Well & Good, Elizabeth.
