Last holidays I tidied, filed and sorted – my desk was completely clear AND I could not create a thing! I’ve kept the categories and let the desk run wild, and my mojo has returned with a vengeance. So fasten your seatbelts and let the tour begin.
The desk tonight features the left overs from an ATC frenzy on the weekend and the beginning of my next assem’ – oh you noticed organ donor Nancy? Poor love she came in with a leg that could not be saved and a cracked chest, she’s going to contribute to at least three pieces of art that are in the pipeline. I went looking for more donors while op-shopping with a couple of girlfriends last week andlearnt a valuable lesson, announcing you are looking for dolls to cut up leads to 10 year old girls giving you horrified looks and hiding the dollies.
Hanging off the door are my ribbons – colour coded too (Unfortunately there’s a select group of one that understands the system for that – there are as many exceptions to the colour rule as grammar exceptions in the English language). Hamish loves to sleep on the floor with the ribbons dangling over him, they don’t seem to mind. Maggie minded tonight, she got up to go for a drink and Hamish had nicely settled into her pre-warmed spot.
To my left we have the Mounted Stamp trolley – my favourite categories “backgrounds” and “words” always seem to have the drawers open. Note the neatly filed ink pads and matching shaving brushes for stippling - YUM – just looking at the nine of them together in the box makes me smile.
To my right is the PUP trolley. Oh sorry, PUP = Partially Used Paper that’s sheets that have been cut into, all neatly sorted by colour. Hanging off one side is a bag of raffia and off the other a bag of mica. This tour was conducted entirely from my chair in front of the main desk (there are two and a half in the room - desks silly, half a chair could led to someone getting hurt!). Future tours may be conducted at random intervals.
