Coming Clean

Monday, December 3rd, 2012

I wish I was a tidier creative person, but I am not. I make giant messes that get so bad, I can’t continue until I get it cleaned up again. When I am working on 2 or more projects at the same time, it just doubles the detritus covering every surface.

Here is my cutting table – this mess was generated doing 3 x 3’s.

This is my print table which has an accumulation of stuff from fusing that was done on the table next to it plus paints and foil, and who knows what else.

I have another table next to my sewing area that has an accumulation of stuff, too.

And, the little pull out table on my sewing machine cabinet holds all the thread I have been working with for the last month or so.

All this stuff has a place, but I get so into the creativity, that I don’t take the time. I don’t think I can change so this week, I will spend time putting everything away so that I can start anew in an organized space. I made a bit of a dent tonight.

Here are the yellow orange 3 x 3s:

And look at what I have accomplished so far this year.

I have to figure out what to do with all of these, now.

I got some important errands done. Anita, the magazine is on its way to you in Florida. Sue Arnold, a felted nativity is on the way to you.

We have a square boxwood wreath on our front door. Mr C  lined the house with Christmas lights. We might go get a tree if we have a day without pouring rain.
