embracing orange

The plant is surprisingly still alive, leggy limbs and all, but every once in a while something rips off a leaf?

Getting cooler, a window peek from the warm inside looking out, little orange plant you’re either going to die from exposure or by my hand, so come on inside, let’s give this a try.

Trimmed that wonky bit straight away, welcome to your new sunny window home in the warm peachy orange studio.

(which is still in a deep cleaning & organization stage)

So much is leaving, but these old wonky roll shades and my old wonky 1st grade picture are staying.

Not sure I can pull off a flesh tone double brimmed hat, but I need a simple mental getaway from the art room studio shambles. (This is some of my lovely peachy avocado dyed wool, Lex said I’ll probably look like a conehead in this.)

I managed to make pretty decent tiny twist pretzel & biscuit stitch marker one lazy afternoon (when I should have been studio cleaning!). Still need to perfect the faux salt and figure out how to make this into a “chicken in a biskit” cracker ..it’s been years since having one of those!

Always embracing our mostly black with patchy orange Kiki, (when allowed, which is mostly never) but, she too loves a warm sunny window in the peachy studio. 💕

I’m kind of a perfectionist, it’s mellowed as I’ve gotten older, but some of those deep traits are still there.

I work in my studio occasionally ..actually pretty infrequently for having a dedicated space and I really want that to change. I’m not entirely sure what the hang up is, but I’m starting with a deep clear out, some monochromatic reorganization (to lessen my visual over stimulation) and a light shift in how I use the space. Can you have too many art supplies?

One idea is to move my stash up there and have an always accessible place for my swift and winder.

The finished idea motivates me, but I really really f-ing hate the process, the mess and the overwhelm. Oh hey distraction, I made a ice cream charm! (p.s it’s not strawberry, it’s bubblegum)

And there was also realtime ice cream distraction ..they may have went to the parlor without me, but they brought me home a pint of half melted Superman!
