Busy unpacking boxes

Trying to get my new studio~office in order. It might take forever.

I do appreciate those of you who have written to say just put one foot in front of the other and do it. Or, pick up an object and put it where it belongs; pick up another object and put it where it belongs. It sounds so simple. And it is truly helpful advice. The only problem is, I didn't move two well- organized rooms to this new room. I moved two messy, disorganized, crazy rooms. So, most of the time I don't know where things belong. Back in piles on the floor, like they were in their former rooms? Sigh.

The good news is, I am forcing myself to throw things away - or give them away. If I haven't managed to use an item yet, after "x" years, then I'll probably never use it, right? Since I make things out of recycled and found objects, it is very difficult to get rid of anything! Another benefit of the move is finding all kinds of wonderful items I had forgotten about - scraps of interesting fabric, old textiles I've been saving for something special, half-done projects that were put aside when I lost steam. I'll try to post pictures of some of these "finds" soon.

At the moment, the best thing about this new room is that Doug installed an air conditioner in here a couple of days ago, so I am really not suffering through this hideous heat wave - and I hope you aren't either.
