My studio is a mess! I blog in this room and create in this room and
I often just walk away from the mess and shut the door.
Now I have to start putting things away and tidy up. Fortunately
it's a good day to do this because it is cloudy and we have already
had one downpour and are expected (hopefully) to have more
rain later. We really need the rain and it will be a blessing for us
all to receive some more.
So … I think I will make myself a cup of tea with a big slice of lemon, roll up
my sleeves, and get to work. This is where you cheer me on :-)
I have a bookcase in one corner of the room that is a mish mash of fabric,
paints in a vintage tool box, dollhouse wallpaper, sewing notions. Wow,
this is going to take some grit to stick with the organization of this spot.
I really need my practical side to make this space more efficient. I think I
will set a timer and see how much I can finish in an hour. Who am I
kidding? It's going to take more than an hour to whip this space into shape.
I need to use the left side of my brain, however the right side of my brain
is shouting ~ "make it pretty, forget about organization!"
The right side of my brain often wins out. It's the side that is coddled and
catered to. The left side (the practical side) is always hoping that today
will be the day. It's the side that shouts "You need coffee, not tea to get
this job done!"
Maybe I should sit back and enjoy my tea and let the two sides of my brain
battle it out. Just kidding. I really do want to get this room organized so
that it is functional as well as pretty.
But if I keep chatting with you ~ which I really love to do, I won't finish
anything. So let me just wish y'all a great weekend!
Bentley is taking a nap in his favorite chair in the studio.
He does not feel the least bit guilty about it either ;-)
Big Texas Hugs,
Susan and Bentley
