It was with a great deal of flourish that I hit the "confirm submission" button last night. The pictures were taken and edited and the artist statement written. Everything went smoothly and I still had HOURS to spare before the midnight deadline! AH - what a nice feeling!
I did have to finish an item for work that will be a free download and should be on the web site before the end of the week. But the pace was relaxed, the mood was joyous and I got to enjoy my little art piece while I was madly bustling around.
However you know that your studio is dire need of attention when this happens...............
|The scrap bucket overflowed|
I know - that's pretty anticlimactic! Just a few scraps spilled out of the basket onto the floor. It's tidy up time!
I swear, I could clear that cutting table often and I do and within hours (or so it seems) it's jammed up with stuff again.
BUT the good news - things are getting completed. NOTHING is getting set aside until later. I'm super happy about that. Well except maybe a label or two, but I love those little sew in labels that I'm using.
I was going to take more pictures, but I didn't have time so I'll do that tonight when I have NOTHING urgent to do. The next deadline is almost 12 days away! I do have loads to get done in the meantime, but nice to have a relaxed pace for a change.
And here's a picture of the messy cutting table. That will be the job for tonight.
|Stuff to put away|
I swear that I'm becoming positively domesticated! I had to cook dinner for myself last night and can you imagine that I vacuumed the floors before leaving for work this morning? I must be coming down with something! By the way - I did cook - I did NOT eat chocolate. And since there are ZERO snacks in the house, when I wanted just a little something sweet after dinner, I went without! My waistline thanks me!
On that note - have a super day!
