Studio Envy.

I DO try to clean all the spaces my creativty falls.. But it leaks out all over the place. The livingroom hasn't been lived in, in months. I keep TRYING to bring my crafty stuff all down to the basement, but it keeps migrating back up the stairs into the livingroom. I would so much like my livingroom back. However, I don't work on stuff when it's in the basement, and with Markets every weekend, I HAVE to be working on stuff.

Although I stocked well over spring, I'm only able to create about 1/2 of what I'm selling off my table every weekend. It makes me feel the pinch to always be making something. I take projects everywhere. My beautiful In-Laws gifted me with a travelling crafting case this winter, because I was always taking things in plastic bags to work on.

However, I'm having Studio Envy. Facebook has exposed me to other artists spaces, and although I'd LOVE to get more organized, I really feel like I don't have the TIME to make it pretty, because I'm very busy WORKING. Sigh.

I put some magic in place back in May, that won't come to fruition till July or possibly August. With it will come the time to clean and reorganize. This magic includes a studio space for the mess.

There's a pile of stuff in my basement that has been begging to be donated for a month, and more on it's heels, and I just haven't had the two days it will require to make it all right.

I hope my family (who I love and adore with all my being) can bear with my mess a little longer.

And on that note... 32 (or so) Cabbage Patch Kids are coming to live here tomorrow. (For fixing, re-dressing, re-naming, and re-adoption!)

Come on Universe. We're all being patient, being good, and loving each other in our little cocoon.

Strawberries :) Num.

Today has been a great day... and it's only 2pm.

I had coffee with a couple of friends, and read cards for one. And scarfed something sweet when I was done.

I came home and listened to some training CD's while stuffing and sewing some monkeys for market on Sunday.

I went with a girlfriend to a local farm and picked berries for half an hour. (Strawberries. So good. ) The picture are strawberries from my OWN yard. They are a heritage wild strawberry.. They are small and soft, and don't keep well... You have to use them or flash freeze them right away. So, it was nice to get some big red ones!

I also put a few Watkins orders together from friends, and my own homes needs, for my monthly order. It's a little after 2... and I've got SO much day left.

What a wonderful day it's been! Lazy Fridays are the bestest.
