Somehow dusting, vacuuming, and sorting boxes just didn't appeal to me. My biggest excuse for getting out of this was this big guy.
I salvaged "big guy" from an alley in my mom's neighborhood. It's got good bones but a few of the drawers needed a bit of repair. In stepped my personal handy man. He's so good. And
Most of the drawers have this decorative embellishment on the front but some of them are cracked, off-centered or have a portion of the resin-like swirl that surrounds the blue background, chipped. This will obviously take a little creativity. These drawers are big and deep and are going to hold a lot of my boxed items. Oh, did I mention that they've been airing outside for the past 5 weeks caused they reeked of perfume and cigarettes? Yes, BIG EWWW but this was such a great find I HAD to bring it home. The smells are gone according to those who don't have the horrible sinus problems as I do.
So what did I do instead of cleaning/organizing that room I call my art space? I made ATCs of course! These are the final four of the Twenty-Four ATC Summer Challenge between Joss and I. One of the themes she chose for me was Africa and it was my biggest challenge of the bunch. Once I put my visions on paper, I was DONE! On the way to London they go!
So what, I didn't get my art space cleaned and organized. I had a Sunday slumber party instead. And that was a lot more fun!
