Art · downsizing

Remains of the Day…

 

Just a couple of my pendants from the show this past weekend. Sorry there weren’t more updates but between getting ready for the show, my husband getting sick, me fighting that off and being in the grips of a migraine last night this morning my computer time has been at an all time low.

Had a pretty good showing and I’m encouraged with the response to my work from the show this past Sat. I’ve signed up for a couple of shows this Fall in Sept. and Oct. I’m looking forward to those once the temperatures have cooled off a bit and it’s not so brutal outside.

On Monday I managed to get several more boxes packed up. I am having trouble making heads or tails of things in my studio so I started moving boxes out of the studio into a spare room. I also need to pick up some colored duck tape and start color coding things. A strip of red on any boxes that fragile and then pick a color for each room.  I’m far behind on going through things. sigh

Anyway, I’m also working on adding my jewelry to my Etsy shop so keep an eye out there if you are interested in buying any!

 

Moving

Spinning my wheels…

and getting no where fast – you know that feeling? Seems like the more I try to get things done the more pops up behind it that needs to get done or the more things get put on hold and I can’t move forward and it’s frustrating.

I think the most difficult part is not having a hard date or time frame on when we are going to be out of this house. The owner wants to move back in and it was to be by the end of the year, we were shooting for fall (Sept/Oct-ish) and now that’s kind of up in the air.

I went on a packing spree last month and packed up things in my studio that I’ll now have to go find the boxes and unpack parts of them if we’re going to be hanging out much longer because I’ll need some of that stuff. sigh

My goal was to just start packing up rooms, clean them up, close them off and not use them again. Then just go in and do spot cleaning when we leave to dust/clean up from non-use. We’ll see if that plan continues. I do know I will continue to downsize things and keep moving forward somehow. I swear it was easier to do a long distance move with the military than this move locally! I’m not used to long drawn out maybe we’ll do it this time, no maybe it will be this other month, no – give me a firm month please… I don’t think I’m asking for much.
