She was agreeable - the funniest part of the day was that the man at my address decides that we all need to spend this day together. He sat in a chair in the lobby of the salon from 12:20 through 3:30 while I get foiled and heat treated.
What do you guys thinks about this????
Way back in September, I posted this sneak idea for repurposing an ammo box for the studio. Well that baby is now hanging on the wall in MaggieGrace world. I tend to procrastinate when I am overwhelmed with something or can't figure it out. I couldn't decide where to hang this with the front as a flip down desk. The decopage pages wouldn't stay where I wanted. And on and on and on. Well Friday night - it all settled in my brain - I took the damn lid off and off we went.
Line the box with scrapbook paper covered cardboard. (This was saved from my show booth at the beginning of March) I love the grunge look of these papers. And the new hair matches perfectly. A few of these were damaged in the salvage effort, but I just put them on the bottom and they will be out of sight when this box is fully filled.
I also had this gorgeous black lace ribbon that picked up on the colors of the paper perfectly. I hot glued it in place to cover the raw cardboard edges.
Close up of the first few ribbons I grabbed. Best I can tell this should hold about 80 - 100 spools. Sad story - thats only about 1/2 of the stash. The work in my studio continues. Carrie said she keeps waiting for the pictures. Sorry - I am only going to post this way - little peeks - until it is finished.
I will say the work I am producing for the space makes me happy and I am so satified to be in there working. The art and craft that is occuring in my world right now is some of my best and I am at a productive high despite the life intrusions. (Did you guys see the Rebecca Sower article in the new somerset life? - That is a woman after my own heart) Thank you all for your votes of encouragement and support. They mean everything to me.
BTW - I do believe the words recycle and repurpose need to be a part of my artistic statement.
Hope you all have a wonderful week.
