Edited Tues. evening – I’ve just realised it’s Wednesday tomorrow and another WOYWW day, and as this post is all about my creative space I thought I’d make it a WOYWW post – a day early, especially as tomorrow is a pretty busy day.
I had another session in the studio this morning, trying to tidy up. I’m doing pretty well. It’s too tiring to do more than a bit at a time but I reckon I’m over half way now, and the main work area is now looking so tidy that I can feel Mr. Dormant Mojo stirring his stumps at last!
First of all here’s my main work area. I even emptied the paint jar (I’m notorious for leaving dirty paint jars for weeks at a time…) – it was green! No, not with mould but because the last thing I used was green paint!
The little basket is new. We had it for Christmas with a “mini-hamper” of goodies from a friend and I thought it would be handy to put my scraps of card in for my Card Factory, which I shall be getting going on again soon, I hope.
It will be so nice to have it messy again but this time with art, not junk dumped there!
Here’s the display area, tidied up and rearranged. I like to ring the changes every now and then, and put out different things. Some of it is my own work but the rest is lovely gifts I have received from others. My dad made the wooden book rest and I love it.
Finally, here’s the other side of the room, opposite the window – this is officially my textile area, with a small drawing area on the right. At the moment it’s even worse because it’s the only dumping ground area left!
That’s the last bit to tidy. Eventually I shall go through the big shelves on the right (not visible in the picture) against the wall that divides the studio from the office section – there’s a lot of stuff in there that needs sorting and weeding out.
My energy levels are still very low. I can do short bursts of activity and then need to get back on the recliner again. While resting, I’ve been catching up with my online contacts – emails, forums, blogs etc. and that takes time – but it’s most enjoyable (thank you everyone for being so lovely and making me want to chat with you!). I get easily fatigued with the M.E. but I think this is also due to the chemo which leaves one very tired for quite a long time. Just got to go with the flow and enjoy all my activities and then crash out in between.
Out for lunch again tomorrow, and a grocery delivery early evening, then the dentist on Thursday (ugh) and another lunch out on Sunday. I’m really busy at the moment!
