Love Birds

Right now I'm working on painting this birdhouse. Although I had a vision of what I wanted (applique/sewn look mixed with paint and decoupage) I'm sort of making it up as I go along.

I guess it's a "mixed media" experiment!

I'm also not sure what do with it once it done. Maybe place it on a bookshelf for the month. Or attach it onto a stand and place it on the porch.

Any suggestions?

Impossible Project Reveal

Well I started here...

With a messy studio that had fallen by the wayside. (You can read all about the beginning of my project here)

I hoped to get back to here...

The reality is, I landed somewhere in the middle...

But I'm really happy to say that I accomplished a mini impossible task within my impossible project- Magazine Organization.

I went through every single magazine I had stored. Tore out anything I wanted to keep and put that into an organized pile that's headed for a binder. There were just a few that I kept whole because they were Halloween magazines or "best of's" on other topics.

Each one of those bins was stuffed full. Plus I had a some stacks that couldn't fit inside the bins. So I'd say 99% of what I used to have made it to recycling!

I also went through all the paper sample books.

And gained some scrap paper and a whole bunch of shelf space.

Which I immediately put to use.

Even though I dreamed of having my pristine studio back by January 31st. Overall I'm really happy with how far I've gone.
  • I tackled the magazine project, which was something I'd wanted to do for a while but kept putting off because it seemed so daunting.
  • And I'm on my way to even better organization and use of the space than I had before.
This challenge was great motivation. I proved to myself that despite feeling dizzy I can modify the way I sort through stuff and eventually get the studio back in order. So I'll keep going with my impossible project until I get there!

Thanks to all the Impossible Challenge Hosts (especially Karah who invited me to play along). If you want to check out how other "Impossible Projects" turned out here's a link to the reveal party.
