Just a quick post today as I am in the frantic last days before the Vintage Home Market in Richmond. I am going to show you the dark side of crafting. Intrigued?
Anyone who knows me knows that I am a neat nick. I like things tidy, organized and generally uncluttered. Neatness helps me stay calm and think clearer. This past week I was not calm or lucid because I was working here….
I had about 12″ square of uncluttered surface to work on.
I literally had to make a path to negotiate around the floor.
In the kitchen I had my “helpers” who absolutely do not add to my calmness when I’m working! I have a few hanging wires to add to my altered bingo cards and some finishing touches to add to some of my larger pieces and I’ll be done for this weekend. Here are pictures of some of the items I finished yesterday.
So this is just a sampling of what I will have at the show this weekend. I hope these things make you smile and get you ready for a great Christmas season.
For now I have cleaned up my studio and have restored a little calm and order. I will enjoy it for as long as I can. Next week it will all be dragged out again as I get ready for a show I’m doing on December 4th. I’m not complaining, though, I love my job and I love seeing what comes out of the mess even more!
P.S. I was so verklempt by the mess I used the wrong setting on my camera when I took these pictures.
