Studio progress report

Well, I had Bible Study today so I didn't get to do much work here in my studio but it's looking much better and I'm seeing light at the end of the tunnel. So, I thought I'd post a few progress report pictures. Just keep in mind that it still isn't finished! I have come a long way but still have a couple of baskets of paper items to sort through, purge, and file as well as the pile that is now at the end of the one table. These baskets are full of small embellishment type things that have to be sorted. You know, the kind of things that make you want to pull out your hair one strand at a time? There's also one large plastic bin with some assemblage things to sort. So far, I have given away two flat rate boxes of stuff, have two 12-gal. bins of stuff to pass on to the Unraveling room at Art Unraveled, have had 4 people dig through my toss out piles of paper and fabric stuff and take what they wanted, given away a garbage bag full of fabric through Freecycle, and thrown out 2 LARGE trash bags and am on the third... full of nothing but trash... and that doesn't cound over half a dumpster of recycle stuff!

Now, I swore I wasn't allowed to do any art until I was completely finished. But I'm having serious withdrawals from not getting to do any art. It's been weeks since I got to create anything and with my mom being in the hospital last week, I lost several days in my schedule for finishing my clean out so I could freely do art this week. So, now that the stuff left is somewhat managable, I HAVE to do some art! I'm waking up in the middle of the night wanting to crawl out of bed in the dark just to create something. I can't take it anymore. I won't be able to do much tomorrow because it's my boys short day at school and I have to go pick up a polaroid camera someone is giving me. Since the lady lives near Fran, I just CAN'T be that close to her and not stop to see her! Especially since she leaves on Thursday for Hawaii for 10 days with her sweet hubby, Dave. I may get to do something in the afternoon though. Maybe it calls for a trip to the library for a new movie (babysitter) for the boys! ;)

Angie, I can't believe you think this needs more work; it looks wonderful to me. I wish I could come over and play with you (although, I suspect that would involve making a temorary mess). You've really worked hard and accomplished a lot.

I think your studio space looks GREAT! I keep trying to dig out of mine - it's a s-l-o-w process for me because I keep getting distracted with all the stuff I FIND! lol

What a neat and organized studio--with kitty litter box and all. I think it's just perfect the way it is.

This looks fabulous, Angie! You've had quite a month and managed to get all this done too. The work space looks incredible, and, like everyone else, I wanted to come over and play! My room looks like your before photos. Great work!

WOW! Your room is looking great.
You go, GIRL!!! For me, a clean studio is stimulating to my "creative spirit".
