Earlier this summer I was able to find some time to organize and purge fourteen years worth of paperwork, art supplies, and well, junk– something I’d wanted to do for quite a while. We’ve moved so often the last few years that the ‘office’ continued to get packed up and trundled along, mess and all, never really getting straightened out. The next project is to do the same thing with my computer files. I have such a backlog…ewww…anyways. A re-arranged bedroom meant that this whole nook opened up, and with it, so many possibilities. What is in here now earns keep…and…it’s already messy. I think I just have to accept it. I usually clean up after a big creating session, if only to be able to find what I need the next go round, but yea, it pretty much stays this way. And I’m digging it. I love the light here too- I love that I have both high workspace and desk-level work space-I always was a standing scrapper but a sit-down painter but I never oriented my space for both possibilities until now. I haven’t gotten to slip in here as much as I would like, but I can honestly say this is the first space that has really worked for me, start to finish- that I can just walk into and get going on whatever I’m interested in. It is still a work in progress, but overall, I am very happy.
