There are more boxes upstairs which I've piled stuff into, either after a workshop I've run or just stuff off the dining room table. They can all stay there for now though... I need to get that table cleared and make space to MAKE ART (as Wendy Vecci would put it ;) ).
This is what I'd rather be doing, playing with these goodies. Those tube watercolour paints were my bargain of the century last week. WHSmith had them half price at 75p each so I got some for my son for school (he's just starting his GCSE Art course). When I got to the till they only came up at 1p each. I couldn't believe my eyes!!! So after checking my receipt I went back and got one of every colour and some extra ones for me. However, this time at the till a different girl served me and said she wasn't allowed to sell me them for a penny. To cut a long story short she did in the end as I'd already paid that price that day so I effectively got £45 worth of paint for 30p - how good is that!!!!
I've also got some ideas re mini tutorials on handwriting styles in your journal that I want to blog...just need to find the darn journals ;)
ps You know the magazine "Where women create"? I've never bought it, I know I could never attain such tidiness. I reckon it's a bit like supermodels, we'll never look like that so why torture ourselves. Anyway, I recently came across this on Ruth Rae's blog, it did make me laugh, especially her Mom's comment! I too work until there's an inch or two space left, but it's not on my table, it's on my lap! And I know there are many more out there like me ;) Come on, let's shout out for where women really create. If you dare, blog it and link back here, make us all feel better (And I might even find a nice bit of blog candy to send out if we get enough comments to randomize a winner)
NOTE: only comments with a picture of their workspace prior to tidying/blitzing.. will be entered in draw but feel free to comment about any of the above, I've had my own natter about it all as you see ;)
