I've been working on rearranging and organizing the studios...a task that needs to be done, and that I enjoy, but feel guilty about the time it takes away from other things -- uh, like creating. My office went from being an office to becoming a fabric studio to being an office/design/illustration studio. I realized I needed much more room for the fabric studio so that went to the basement where my painting/junking studio is. The basement is so torn apart it's scary. Add to this that my kitchen has been in constant renovation for a year now (no thanks, in part, due to the poorly chosen contractors I hired, but that's a whole other story) and some of the kitchen stuff is boxed in the laundry part of the basement. ugh.

As I tinker in each area I am finding little spots of happiness. I focused on a part of the office yesterday. I acquired a dresser over the weekend that I thought I would maybe Freecycle, but since I like it's style I thought of 3 different places I could use it. The office won. I had to get this...

to be neater and cleaner visually to free up brain space. So I did this...

Oh happy day!! Much more visually appealing and I'm liking the vignette on top of the dresser.

Although, that may change because that's what seems to happen around here, as my friend's remind me all the time. 

I found this little guy a few years back and almost gave it away, but for some reason I couldn't. At the time, I really wasn't drawn to this type of cuteness, but apparently things have changed. I found him in a drawer and he's been moving around and finally has a perch. 

My goal later today is to get the fabric on the shelves and the sewing machine on the table so I can start stitching away. It's been a bear trying to figure out what fabric went into which box when I was looking for a specific one. I often feel like I'm running in circles. It's self-imposed I know. But HEY! the final results, which I see clearly in my head, will be wonderful.
