Spring Cleaning: We straighten up our garden craft supplies!
True confession time! Where do you keep your junk, …. I mean “art supplies?”
This is a term coined by our own George Weaver, who once showed us his shed, and “art supplies” is now our own term for the junkola that we cobble together to make ART for our gardens.
Marie Niemann has volunteered to give you all a peek into her stash, shown, and we’re all wondering if you take the Double Dog Dare and show us yours?
How about it…(whining,) “Are we alone in this?“ Leave your confession in the comments and show us your stash on our Facebook… Dare ya!
Rita Smith says, “I have one big corner of ‘Arts and Crafts’ all in boxes and every room has something ‘stored.’ What makes it worse I have three categories, junk, upcycle, ‘for kids,’ no restrictions, (that’s four, Rita) just fun fun fun, (Five, but who’s counting) then my ‘Precious collection, secret, don’t touch finds’ (Six!) bought or collected for a purpose and kept because I’ll never find the same again! Nutty or what? You’ll get no pictures, because my Mother might see!”
Where creative people work…
Terminology is the key
They’re Craft rooms, ‘art pieces’ and ‘Precious finds’
Jeannie Rhodes I’ve always heard clutter and messiness is the sign of a creative person! Organized people just don’t understand!
Rationalization is good
Sue Gerdes: The thing is I need things at my fingertips when I get the urge to make something. We live a long way from a store…that’s my story and I am stickin to it!!!
