OK... summer is over and our big fundraising event will be over soon too. It is time to get back into the studio and be creative. I have been collecting papers and wonderful materials all summer and I have already stocked up on bookboard and PVA...with no time to work out all the ideas in my head. I feel like I am all dressed up for the ball with no pumpkin to get me there. First things first... and I know I have been saying this... but I need to organize my studio. I have a new set up for paper storage and some new work spaces to install. I need to get the blades on my board shear sharpened and I need to take stock of all my tools.... I know for a fact that I desperately need a new pair of scissors, new brushes and a larger garbage bin. I would also love to paint my studio walls and floor. Starting very soon I will have a respite worker coming by to help with Sam. We will get 12 hours a month and I plan on using that time to get organized in my studio and my house so that I don't have to clean up and hunt for things before I even get started on a project. Lofty goals (considering things as they are presently) but a girl has to have aspirations ... right!
