Coming Together...

The studio is in that impossible transitional stage right now. Everything is poured out and in small piles. It's hard to step anywhere without tiptoeing. It would be easy to lose faith at this point – to see all the mountains of things and just give up, sweeping everything in boxes to be sorted "later". I know though that if I were to do that, "later" would never come. Treasures would sit with trash, waiting for some an unnamed day. So, today I throw myself into this impossible task and hopefully will finish. When I sit still, moving pieces around in my mind, like a puzzle... discarding the extra and simplifying the mass... I can see it coming together. I'm going to turn my phone off. I'm going to unplug the computer. I'm going to turn on some music and brew some tar-black coffee. Because today I'm going to do more than just visualize it coming together and actually get it done!

So how's it coming Andrew? I'm still trying to figure WTH I'm going to do with mine! Unfortunately, I need to knock down a wall and build another to get more much needed room. Good luck with the Reno!!

You go! Have a great day organizing. You will be so happy when it is finished!

BTW: Did you post a winner for the last Thursday's giveaway? Just checking.

Have a productive day.

I swear that beading is 1/2 creativity + 1/2 organizing and the organizing part is never as much fun.
