MAGPIE'S MUMBLINGS

A blog about my interests, which include crazy quilting and various and assorted other artsy pursuits and sometimes known to contain mumblings of a random nature.

shovel, shovel, toil and trouble.....

Yeah, I suspect you have figured out already from that blog post title just what I've been doing!  My studio had reached the point of either having to move out, or shovel it out.  I opted for shoveling because I really like where we live.  Two and a half days of solid slugging and it now looks just about the same as it did before I started.  Yep....there's still piles of 'stuff' everywhere, but at least the piles have a purpose now and aren't just hodgepodges of mess.

No pictures today,
because you really don't want
to see the mess, either
before OR after!

So, I will send you off to have a look at THIS instead!  My friend Pam has a wonderful board on Pinterest with tons of ideas for color palettes.  For those of us who sometimes struggle with colour choices there are plenty of ideas here.  

And the quote for today, from J.C. F. von Schiller.....  "Happy is he who learns to bear what he cannot change"

I have been doing the same thing. But what I found to be helpful is to do an area at a time then stop for the day and move on to something else. I did those piles last - still have a couple- but at least everything else is in order so its easy to put each thing in each pile where it goes. I share my "studio" with my "office" so I have to admit that the studio and computer area look great. Those piles are over in the office area!

Excuse me...I beg to differ! I was in that self same room the other day and it was perfect. I didn't notice any mess and it certainly was more neat and organized than mine ever was on a good day! You are just too fussy! LOL

a shovel for your studio? That could be a new project?
