Art Room Cleanup and WOYWW #217

Ok there is NOT a before photo cause it was such a mess I could not even find my camera! So, many hours later, here is the cleaned up art side of the room. The other side is clean too although filled with storage boxes with things to put away! At least there is a wide expanse of floor for a change! My old cat Pandora still lives over on the other side of the room and the wall container shelves continue to the end of the wall. The rest of the other walls are book shelves and then my desk/computer, printers, etc.

Here is part of the room:

my room 7-30

Then here is my table for WOYWW, nothing on it to show except for a clean surface!

And here are some postcards I made at Leslie's on Sunday. Got the ATCs done and mailed off. These are just backgrounds for one of the future post card swaps. I was in a "brights" mood on Sunday!


It's a slow start getting back to doing art after letting it go over the last month of summer. But now that I am home from my travels and with the prospect of work (school) approaching, I find I want to spend time doing some art. This is good. It gives balance to the work day for me.

  1. YAY! You did it! It looks great even without knowing how bad it was before. Good for you, I knew you could do it once you got fired up. Now you've got lots of room and a bit of summer left to make art!

  2. Such a tidy space you've created I honestly think camera should come with clappers on them so when you clap your hands they beep lol your atc look wild hugs Nikki I'm posted Here

  3. Well done! I'm still at it with cleaning up my art-space! It takes so much time, but it's nice to see things getting better :-)
    I also had a look at your recent posts and congratulate you on your harvest, so nice to have fresh fruit to pick from the trees. Does the owl help with cherries also? We hardly ever get any because of the birds...
