I read a quote once by an artist that went "If I can't create something every day, I feel as if I'm going to burst!" I can understand that. I need that fix everyday. Moving meditation. *smile* Here's my card today. She was a precocious one. Required lots of fine motor work but the bakers twine cooperated with the glue pen and the dress fit and the wooden seat fit and the squirrel didn't throw nuts down on the little girl, so it all worked out. Deets can be found in my SCS Gallery. Now, for those of you here for this week's WOYWW, continue on.
When last you saw our heroine, she was hanging off a cliff wondering how her work space was going to be evacuated in the time dh alloted. Normally a procrastinator, she hoisted herself up and started carrying armfuls of craftiness to the basement. It was actually an eye opening experience because she found lots of goodies that have been buried under the "go-to" tools. In particular are the paper families that have taken up residence ever so stealthily in the narrowest of spaces and are now seeing the light of day. (She has to explain that they have come to live here by way of many 40% off coupons and discounts and mark-downs over the years, so don't think this crafter doesn't live up to the frugalista name... hee hee.) If she showed you what her workspace looks like now after a couple of days of clean up, you'd see a clean floor and neater closet. The desk is next and she will have it done by Monday when her parents arrive for the coming holiday. (If she can sneak a photo in pre-holiday next week, you'll see what the room looks like when there's no crafty evidence in it---except maybe the stray paper confetti that tends to bury itself in the carpet fibers....Oh, and to answer one lovely commenter's reflection on where the guests will put their clothes because everyone knows what that closet looks like....it isn't a guest room for sleeping in.... it's just a sitting room....lucky girl, the closet doesn't have to be cleared out but the door does have to close without complaining.....)
Anyway, the paper families are making a pit stop in the dining room (why does crafty girl think she hears snickering out there?) Pit stop because, again, they're not welcome to stay for long. Crafty girl has decided to sort them out and, get this, punch a circle out of every paper pack cover and then every paper in the stack, hole punch each, then put them on a large binder ring for easy reference. Then instead of going to the basement to be re-buried, they'll go on shelves for easy access. She loves this idea.
Tune in next week, same time, same channel and see if our heroine completed her task or completely lost her mind in the process.... *smile*
Happy WOYWW! (And if you don't know what I'm talking about, click on the WOYWW gadget on my sidebar and enter Wednesday's World of Wonderful Workspaces.....)
