Here is the studio in a rather deplorable state. The white curtain separated the display area from the work area.
I recognized that some bad habits had crept into my work schedule. The one that was really bothering me is one of the things that makes it so great to live the life that I do – being a carefree artist living out in the country with no close by neighbors.
My Momma told me things that you love most when taken to extreme are the things that will drive you the craziest.
I had developed the habit of spending all morning in my PJ’s schlepping around the house, in front of the TV and the computer and a tin of Christmas cookies. Next thing I knew it was noon and I hadn’t accomplished anything. At that point it was so easy to continue on that course.
I decided the other day that I would immediately get out of bed, take my shower and get dressed before I headed downstairs to the coffee and
cookies computer to check my messages.
I like to think it was divine intervention, ’cause when I checked my messages that morning, I had an order that for me to fill, I need to be dressed and out in the studio with the glass saw running at full speed. A wake up call so to speak.
I’ve put down the box of cookies and I am working on practicing a better work routine. Don’t get me wrong, I still wear my PJ’s out in public more than I should.
I am teaching a glass fusing class in two weeks here at the studio so I’ve been quite busy trying to clean up and make room for the students. This is going to really be fun.
Really, I’m making progress. The curtain has come down.
lots of supervision
And yes, there really is a work table under there somewhere…
I’ve got to get back to work, more later.
Until next time,
