I Gather...Slowly...

I'm 15 minutes away from failing at Blogalong with Effy on the second day...it's NOT happening!!!  I am in the process (so very close!!!) to finishing my spread from Inner Intentions for the third (?  ...no time to look...I'm pretty sure it's third...) chapter.  The "I Gather" chapter.  Should be good to go tomorrow barring random oddness like what happened tonight.  Nail in tire, trip to get it fixed, fixing takes FOREVER, very little time for anything but eating and bemoaning the lack of time...

BUT  I am managing to put up a post with a picture...so that's got to count for something, right?

So what do I gather?  Well, take a look:

Very informative picture, if you look closely...
I gather messes.  Fun messes.  I also gather art supplies.  I gather various creative hobbies (art journaling, working with polymer clay,  crochet, sewing, soft toy making, the list goes on and on and on).  I gather random weird things...why do I have a wooden meat cleaver in the basket on the left?  I don't know...but one day, I'll figure it out...  I gather Happy Thoughts, and you can see the next two almost done, just in need of a type out of the phrasing that I scribbled on the attached post it notes and an attachment of said phrase to the mini paintings.

And now, I'm going to gather myself together, post this post, eat a cold hamburger , and gather some zzz's. And vow to do better tomorrow come nail in tire or high water...

    1. My sister!!! It's true...I've been called a "craft acquiring junkie" because if I see something cool, I start fiending to try it out! If you love that side of the desk, you'd LOVE the rest of the studio! (and what has spilled over into other rooms...and the trunk of my car...) :)

  3. I wish I had an art station like this. I fear though it would be just too much temptation for my cat, she would be all over it like a rash. I used to have a tin with my brushes in and every morning I would find them all strewn about the floor with the bristles soggy with cat spit.

    1. I'm really lucky to have my big desk! My brother-in- law worked at a college and they were just going to throw it away, so I got it for free! Before I got it, I did a lot of lap work, all hunched over and uncomfortable...so I pet my desk lovingly every day! :)
      My cat won't get up on any other surface in the house except my art desk...it's her kitty conspiracy against me, I think. She never messes with anything (I was laughing so hard at cat spit on the bristles!!!), but she does occasionally throw up on my pages...I take it as constructive criticism... :)
