Well...I finally did it.
I just took over my entire house.
It is now a studio.
Instead of being just in the back...
It is now all, "creative work space."
I guess since I am in Anacortes
during the week and spend my weekends in Kirkland
I thought I'll just do it.
So now..... when I come home from
work...I just collage and paint and solder right along with
cooking dinner and watching John Stewart....
I feel like I live out of a suitcase.
Which I do.
David and I have been
....boyfriend and girlfriend...for 11 years
Every weekend I pack a bag.
And since I have been in a creative
whirlwind lately, I take all my crafty supplies with me...
When we unload my car...he says, I look like a homeless person...
I have been making jewelry
Here is my mess in the main part of the house.
Which was formally known as...
the kitchen, dining, living room.
Now it is all of the above and a studio.
It is just 600 square feet.
no time to clean..
when you are feeling creative.
nothing is sacred...I am getting scrappy here with paper...
This is a piece I did for an auction at the open door gallery
on Whidbey Island.
The theme is...hearts, home and hammer,
to benefit those who need home repairs, but can't afford it.
This is a small collage. On the lower right is a pin.
this comes off and you can wear it...then store it
on the collage.
this one holds a necklace.
