Saving The Studio
Happy Friday, and the end of another week, this one seemed to fly by faster than usual. I know, for many of you, it has been a wild and weird weather week, hopefully the weekend will bring sunnier days for us all.
I will start this post off with a warning. For those of you who are super organized and have been so most of your life, perhaps even from birth, you may want to avoid this first photo...it may be too much of a shock to your well ordered self. You have now been warned.
This is the Studio/Junk room...I know what you are thinking...How does a room get this bad? Well, to be honest, this photo was just taken today and I have actually been working on the room for some time. I can only say in my defense, that it is not easy to keep all of the things that you think you 'need', in a 750 square ft. home. (Approx.) And for some reason, the mess seems to get worse the more I work on it.
Progress is being made and I am discovering things I forgot all about, like this bin of vintage patterns that I would like to put in my Etsy shop.
And this wild Asianish (is that a word?) fabric that I fell in love with and thought would make a great apron.
Speaking of aprons, I completely forgot about this book along with other sewing and craft books that were in a corner ready for those bookshelves yet to be purchased.
Oh, another interesting thing happens when you live in a small home with minimal kitchen storage. Sometimes, small appliances live in other rooms, like displaced relatives staying for 'just a short time'.
So my friends, now you know my messy little secret. I figure, if I show you the room, then I will have to keep up with the digging out and finally make it be the studio...my studio, that I have been dreaming about. It will be that much easier to accomplish when I know you are all cheering me on.
With that said, I will now wish you all a fun and sunny, first weekend of Spring.
