Thought I'd give "ewe" a peek into where I spend most of my time when my kids are either at school or sleeping. Wanted to do this while the room is actually straightened up because it's a lot like my kitchen— it's only clean until the next meal, or in this case, my next project. I need to give a special shout out to my parents, Chandler and Jessica for finally hanging my cork board that was propped up on crates for months and also the picture shelves that were a garage sale find from my own Mother's garage! Priceless.
A couple of years ago, I decided it would be best to move my make-shift art studio (that some might refer to as a cluttered mess) from the dining room table to our detached garage out back. Once a dilapidated storage room, this previously unused space is now my studio/laundry room. You'll notice the windows on the left give me a bird's-eye view of our tiny backyard and the ever-popular trampoline. This afternoon while I was taking these pictures, Jackson (my 5 year old) was jumping on the trampoline while constantly talking to me on our walkie-talkies. It's amazing that I got any pictures taken between transmissions of, "What are you doing Mommy?, "Come jump with me Mommy!" and "Mommy watch this!".
About the laundry thing, I like having clean clothes, but I can't stand doing laundry. So I figured if we put the washer and dryer in the same room where I create, it might be less painful for me to do the dreaded laundry. Conclusion? Still a painstaking task.What's with all the corks? Well, I didn't drink all that wine, just some of it. The rest of the corks were given to me by friends and family. I was collecting them pretty heavily for years with the anticipation of making a huge cork board, but I got bored with that idea. I'll find something to do with them one of these days. Same goes for my button collection... and my bucket of sticks. Don't ask.
Happy Monday everybody!
