Keeping It Real--Studio Table

I took this week off for vacation. The plan was to work on my business ALL. WEEK. LONG.--make art, write some blog posts, get some stuff that's been lying around listed in my Etsy.  I probably should have cleaned my space before I got started.

But if I had done that, I wouldn't be able to give you a glimpse into what my space (and often my mind too) really looks like most of the time when I'm working.  This is exactly how it looked when I quit for the night.  I tried to get the whole scene for you--the pile of paper and stuff on the table along with my brushes that I just washed for the first time in a couple of months this morning, paint tubes on the floor so I can find them, piles of paper from all the snipping I've been doing.

I lost my scissors today...again. I have a running list of other stuff that's lost in the heaps right now. I'm sure it's all there somewhere.  So here goes.


Now I'll be forced to do an "after".  But don't hold your breath. I have three more days of my #LeissnerArtWeek.  If I can still see the floor by then, I'll consider it success.
