I NEED MORE SPACE!!
I have been diligently (ok, in between card making) working on purging out my studio/ office in order to meet that goal I set to be ready to WORK in there by the time Hannah goes to school. I have gotten rid of a lot of stuff either donating, trashing or packing into JUNQUE packs. On one hand I feel proud of what I have accomplished ( you can actually WALK in there) and on the other hand it seems like there is no end in sight. I guess I need to get even more ruthless and make another round through the boxes and things. I just feel frustrated because I want to work in there but if I am in there I feel like I should be cleaning and organizing. The other problem is that I have literally NO wall space in that room. Its a "dining room" with three walls of windows and one wall that has 2 doors (one is blocked off with shelves) and a built in china cabinet which we need for dishes. I have big shelving units over desks on two of the walls and shelves in the window seat nook too. How can that NOT be enough storage? Ugh. Some one come help!! I will pay you in art supplies. LOL
Ok, I needed to just get that rant out. I wanted to share this picture that I found when I was working out in the storage shed ( I think some fabric is destined for there.. boo). It was in an old suitcase filled with framed pix from my Grandmother. I do not know who many of the people are and I am hoping that my Dad might. This one was labeled but also recognizable to me.. it is my Great Grandmother dressed as a doll for a costume party given by William Randolph Hearst in the 30's. Wow! Isn't it cool? I have more pix of my Great Grandmother and my Great Aunt and Grandmother at Hearst Castle, etc. Its an interesting history that I wish I had had enough sense to ask about when I was younger and they were still alive.
