SOME WOMEN DREAM OF BEAUTIFUL HOMES AND PERFECTION. SOME DREAM OF THE DIAMOND IN THE ROUGH, OUTCAST ITEMS, THE TATTERED, THE CRAZED, THE RUSTED AND SOMETIMES DISCARDED TREASURES. IM A MEMBER OF THE SECOND GROUP. I'M A JUNKER FOR LIFE!

This is the reason.
In case you wonder where have I been I have an answer. HERE!
I have been dreaming of a working space for a while, just dreaming since I spend all my money last year building my retail shop and moving my home to a new place. So, the studio money went bye-bye. I organized a space in my shop (8x8) thinking that was going to sufficed...Ja! I could not even move. So I kept brainstorming. My husband suggested I turn my formal living into my studio since we never sit there. NO WAY!. So that was the end of it until two weeks ago. I have a guest room which we refer to as the "princess room". It looks like the room belonging to a little girl, all pink and girlie. It was full of massive furniture that made the space look so little. It is not a huge room but is an ok size 14x16. Well, I decided to give up my guest room/princess room. Nobody had stay there since we moved and i realized that is such a waste of space when I needed the square footage. So we took the furniture to the shop for sale and I kept the armoire that came with it for storage. In came a new secretary, a small sideboard and an awesome locker with 72 little drawers that my husband got for me. I have been moving, finding, sorting, labeling, organizing, going up and down a stool, etc, etc. It is not done since I have to interrupt my work for real life matters. I can't wait to get all done, I have been writing down projects, bookmarking, dreaming of sitting there and start creating. I better crank it up since I am planning a lot of pretties for Christmas. Let me leave you with some pictures of the mess, lots of pretties buried there though.
