Myself, I create in the eye of a hurricane and it shows. When the rubble gets so bad I cannot carve out a square foot of clear space, I stop working and start putting things away. However, what usually happens is that in handling my bits & pieces something will spark an idea and I'm off and running, and once again 'making' instead of 'cleaning'. My workshop is rarely ever really 'clean'.
|The house was built in 1912; we're throwing it a birthday party this summer.|
Those upper front windows are my workroom.
|Dining Room BEFORE|
|Yes, it really morphed into THIS.|
Time to head upstairs. Now before we enter my workroom, I have to warn you to prepare your eyes for extreme ugliness. The wallpaper was old and decrepit when I bought the house 22 years ago, and it has been the domicile for two teenage boys (stepson and my son, in turn). Both picked at the wallpaper. The house is 100 years old and the walls are the original lathe & plaster - both boys tried to hang pictures by hammering nails into the walls... which broke the plaster. As a result, this room looks like a French bordello that has been bombed by the Nazis. Don't say I didn't I warn you.
|This lovely wallpaper is flocked... as if the red & gold weren't bad enough.|
|The door leads to a walk-in closet; that just a bunch of random crap on the old daybed.|
|Chain hangs on the back and end of these little shelves.|
Yes, that is a clamp-on shop light at the top of a 2x4. The ceiling fixture is broken.
|There's always at least one coffee cup. Hmmm... I see I was working on this!|
|L to R: Wire & Chain, stones & beads, shipping envelopes & gift boxes in the dresser, metal beads, filigrees, etc. and door into photo room|
|My small photo tent; there's a larger on on a big metal desk to the right.|
I see I was photographing an ArachneMachina 'Pectus' spider pin.
Here's a few of my latest creations!
