A reader made a great suggestion to me via email. I've always just replied personally to emailed questions and comments about blog posts and it never occurred to me that I should answer the emails on the blog so that others would get the benefit of the info. Which proves that I at least do learn something new every day.
I was asked about this mug in one of yesterday's photos. It was in the photo because I wanted to show you my new mugs I ordered from Overstock...but then I forgot to write about them. Duh! Anyway, these are made by German merchandisers Konitz and they are really well made -- dishwasher and microwave safe -- and Overstock packs them beautifully so they arrive in perfect shape. We also ordered a set of Konitz Coffee Bar white mugs that are a little smaller but are equally as awesome. Recommended!
Speaking of mini projects, another time-consuming one was getting all of my dry adhesives corralled into as small a storage area as possible. It took me no less than 3 tries in different containers to get it down to these 2 drawers. Uh, yes, I do have that many gluesticks. Once I'd made up my mind that I preferred Scotch's Wrinkle-free stick best, I had a very hard time finding it so when I saw them at dickblick.com I kinda went nuts. Oh well, at like $1.20 a stick, I could afford to...
Okay, so...on to the rest of the Playroom Work in Progress Tour, such as it is.
1. my paints, inks glues and mediums in the built-in side wall shelves;
2. the very top shelf along the ceiling is for my special stuff I've bought to alter;
3. and the lower top shelf below that is for my journals, altered books, watercolor papers, canvases, and my glass and vinyl cutting mats
And up above that shelf is this top shelf where I've stashed some pet wood pieces I want to make something special with each one.
Well, enough for now. Thanks again for sticking with me and all these photos, and I hope you enjoyed seeing a bit of what I've been doing...
