I love looking at the places where neat, organized people create. Unfortunately, I am not one of those people, as much as I’d like to be.
Want to see my place? Once you’ve had a look at where I create, you will want to move in with me and use it yourself. Ready? Take a gander over to the left. It’s a beauty, ain’t it?
This, ladies and gentlemen, is my dining room. I live in a 3 bedroom split-level home that is a perfectly reasonable size for a family of four. That is, a family of four that doesn’t also have two businesses that require space for inventory, office work, and creativity. All of the extra *things* in this house have a way of turning into piles of clutter if we’re not careful and, as you can see from the picture, we haven’t been all that careful lately…
So, I’ve got at *least* 3 clay projects swimming around in my head right now, and there’s no room at the darn table for me to work! I can barely even pull the chair out to sit in it, and if I push anything out of the way on the table, something is undoubtedly going to fall off the other end. This is what is referred to as “my wit’s end.” And I am doing something about it.
At the right you can see what one hour in there can accomplish. I cleaned all of my stuff off of the floor and started in on the table, too. Anything that remains on the floor, and some of what is still on the table, is clarkesworld‘s, and he’s handling that end of the cleanup.
Keep an eye on this blog for my progress. And if you don’t hear of any more progress in a reasonable amount of time, hunt me down, shake a virtual fist at me and say “hey! get to work in the studio of yours!” I don’t want to lose my momentum. Ideally, I want to be sitting down at that table making my next masterpiece by the end of the weekend. Think I can do it?

Happy Memorial Day!
