One of the reasons I bought my house was the garden shed in the backyard. It was built by the architect and his wife that previously owned the house. (He didn't build the house.) They would have the in-laws stay out in the shed when they came to visit. I have used it in a half- assed way as a studio/storage but really want to get my creative groove back so have been attempting a re-organizing blitz. "Trying" being the operative word. I am having a hard time finding the time and the energy to make much of a difference.
Somehow, someway my brother got the lone organizational gene floating around the DNA pool in my family. It is ironic to me that the times I have been most creative are the times when I had the least amount of space and materials. I now have more space then ever and a veritable craft supply store of my own to choose materials from: beads, paper clay, paints, paper, wood, glass, wax, fabric, wool, anyone?
You'd think I would be busy as the proverbial bee buzzing away contentedly. YOU WOULD BE WRONG. I can't entirely blame the mess in the studio. I am lacking a focus. I had originally intended on selling some craft items at the Christmas Craft sale that the lab where I work has each year. I have sold various things in the past, herb wreaths, cards, ornaments etc. with great success, I just am having a really hard time getting it together. I think once the election is over and Barack gets in (please, oh please!) I will be able to breathe a sigh of relief. I don't even want to think about the alternative. These photos were taken this summer and I have made some progress since then. I will try to post more soon.
