Clutter Management

I will never get rid of clutter in my studio. I just have too much stuff with which I can’t part. For a couple of days, I have been slogging through the studio, cleaning  and sorting.

I once had my threads on the ledge of the wainscoting, but I think they get too much sun and dust. I have several of the small plastic organizers. One was under utilized, and it now holds my thread.



I cleaned off both my print table and ironing table which were piled with stuff from creating pieces for my show. I love the images that are left on my print table.




I just need to unpack stuff from the collage class and I will be back in business again. By the way, the painting and new shelves are in my office/grandchild play room. We have some dry wall work to do in the studio and then we will paint it. Today, Mr C painted his office/tv room. It is one of our favorite colors — Harley Rumble — sort of a dark taupe.

Tomorrow is crit group. I will be taking the chairs because I don’t have anything new that isn’t hanging in the show.

    Well, I’m tres tres late to the party, but I must agree that you use those wonderful print table pieces!


  2. You need WAY more thread! And the dropcloths are always the best pieces of fabric.

    Hi Gerrie,
    Yeah, sometimes that “blotting” paper or fabric is the best! I love making collages out of paper that was under fabric I painted and/or that I used to test stuff out. I love those fabrics.
    Have a good weekend.
