Organizing Inspiration

I recently received an e-mail from a client requesting suggestions in figuring out what to do with items that are passed down through families and how to preserve that connection without having to keep everything from Aunt Mabel etc.

My suggestion is if you don’t love it and you are not using it, or it is just taking up too much valuable space then it’s time to let go of it. To preserve the connection, take pictures of the items and place the pictures in a journal where you can write about where and who it came from and how it came to you. That way, the memory will be preserved for future generations and you can regain some valuable space for the items you do use and love.
