Wow, I see that it's been a whole month since I last posted and that's just not right. But, when you're packing to move and things are displaced. . . well, that's my excuse and I'm sticking to it. Anyway, the update on the house is that the carpet will be installed on TUESDAY and I'm so excited. That's the only thing stopping me from getting in and setting up my studio.
We've gone from too much rain to record heat. The sprinklers are out, grass and weeds are growing, growing, growing, but so are my creative urges. When I'm finally in my new and really 1st studio, I have friends who have volunteered to come and help me take my 20some tubs of fabric stash and UFO's, and help me sort, fold, divide and conquer! This is the space I'm leaving:
Actually it rarely looked that clean and organized. . . see that pile to the right, that's more like it. I'll bet when I took this photo I had to move huge stacks of paper crap off the surfaces and they were probably hiding on the floor where you can't see in the picture. What I really need is 3 friends who will come weekly and sort, file, and put away all that stuff that I habitually pile on flat surfaces. Oh my. But I did recently find some articles that may help me in the future and maybe you too if you're a little bit ADD like me. Check this out: http://www.additudemag.com/adhd/article/6528.html
As of this date, everything is off the walls and about 1/3 of the light stuff has been moved down to the house. I'm storing it in the bathroom, even the tub and you can bet that as of Wed. there will be a flurry of activity and I promise to post photos as I move in.
Warm hugs and always a smile, chris
