This has been a crazy month. My kid turned 18, I went and spent a long weekend with some of my favorite girls in Savannah, came back just in time to have a lovely week-long visit from my mom for my kid's graduation, then went to Cape May, New Jersey for a week. In the midst of all of this, I decided it would be a good idea to rearrange and reorganize my mad scientist's lab. I AM SO SMART.

Check out the before:

So messy. The tables are movable, which is awesome for my short attention span when it comes to furniture arrangements, but having them all spread around like that was irritating the crap out of me. Now, though... lovely.

I bought some new shelves and a cabinet for my fabric...

My daughter promptly covered it with handprints, which makes it even more awesome. Now I have three individual areas with all of the appropriate supplies - one for painting...

One for sewing...

And one for sculpting...


I even have this awesome pegboard on a lazy susan that I got from the owner of the local convenience store that I'm using to corral my ridiculous stencil collection.

Now maybe I'll go paint something.


I'm going to give away some stencils!

Artistcellar recently had a giveaway, and I won Mini Steampunk Pocket Stencils, which I already have thanks to my tenure on their design team! Leave a comment on this post (if for some reason it doesn't work, comment on or share this Facebook post), and I'll pick a winner on July 23rd!

Okay NOW maybe I'll go paint something.
