Studio Before and After

Today I tackled perhaps my largest project to date.  I cleaned my basement studio.  I thought this deserved some before and after shots.

 All right, so here we have it.  No, there wasn't an earthquake, or a tornado.  Or a little family of Tasmanian devils living in there.  And before you start counting all the safety hazards... just give me a chance.

Yay!  Time to be inspired and put those blank canvases to good use.  Yes, there is still paint on the floor, and sawdust in the corners.  But that's what I love! There is not much I enjoy more than creating something in all it's grand messiness, and taking it out of that messy environment, into a beautiful setting.  It's magic.  But I do need floor space to do it.

This canvas is ready to go

I found some great things I had forgotten about during this clean up.  

Like this fork.

I also found some strange things.

Like this... thing.

What in the world is this?  Better hang on to it,
you never know when one of these will come in handy.
I hadn't realized I have horded so many frames, now they are all nice and tidy in a box of their own:

Here's a peek at two other hoards I have in my studio, my buttons and vintage lace.

So much to be created- so let's get to it.

Last, but not least, while I was doing all this, look where I found this nosey little bugger!
