...my life, things always seems to end up like this for a few days....
(This picture is for those of you who think I could give Adrian Monk a run for his money...)
In the end, I wound up with a new, old little cabinet for my studio - it used to be a medicine cabinet in my bathroom with a mirror on front - now it's a cabinet for all my little art supplies with a bulletin board on the front. And now all of my little ink bottles and adhesives and other unattractive things are nicely hidden out of view, but still close at hand.
While I was at it, I redid my inspiration board for January,
and said goodbye to the last of the Christmas stuff.
I also decided to revamp my blog a little bit - have you noticed the changes?
Now it's time to...
...and start painting again!
Hope you've been having a lovely week!
Beth I would love to even have a room like that!! A room to keep all my stuff out. That is the frustrating thing is doing crafty things but having to put it all away at the end of the day because room is scarce!!!ReplyDelete
Yes, Miss Paula, it is nice to have a place to let crafts and projects "explode" - and still have a kitchen table to eat on at the end of the day! I'm thankful to have this room... probably won't always have the space for this, but for now it's very nice. :o)ReplyDelete
Cute idea with the medicine cabinet! I love your bulletin board. Perhaps if mine was thematic I would look at it more often. I'm guessing you wrote the Romans verse out... wishing my calligraphy was that beautiful!ReplyDelete
Thanks, Leah. I find that if I change my board out periodically (and stick with a theme), I look at it more often and it looks "neater."ReplyDelete
The calligraphy verse from Romans was actually a gift from my high school German teacher! It is beautiful, isn't it? I've had it for years... Thanks for visiting!
Thanks for becoming a follower of my blog. I enjoy seeing people posting real pics of their homes! I love your work. Do you print the hymns out, or do you collect old hymnals. I love to frame hymns. Have a wonderful day!ReplyDelete
Hi Jen, thanks so much for stopping by! Glad you're enjoying the hymn series - I have a couple of old hymnals, but as they have sentimental value to me (and I'm a bit of a bibliophile anyway), I don't want to cut them up. So I scan the page(s) I want, arrange them as needed in Adobe Photoshop, print them out, and do my collage & painting on top of them... I have always loved the old hymns, and am really enjoying the possibilities they have for collage - I plan to do more, so stay tuned! I have prints available of all of them I've done thus far in my shops. I look forward to getting to know you better through our blogs! God bless!ReplyDelete
I am always in such a hurry, I comment, but forget to wait for the code word and sub thing, and then I am gone. I did it again. LOLReplyDelete
Anyway, You are making such good use of the time we all have chilling out. It looks great over there!
HAHA! The code word was FROOZEN! HAHA!ReplyDelete
Thanks, Faith - I know, I think they make the "comment" process a little too long too... and "FROOZEN" describes just about everything today - my feet, the world outside, my computer...! Thanks for reading.ReplyDelete
Your blog and your studio look wonderful! I have that "Simplify" sign over my kitchen sink!ReplyDelete
Thanks, Katy! Great minds think alike... :o) Good luck with your new job, by the way!ReplyDelete
