i've been having long naps in the evening when i come home from the studio. i'd rather get the house vacuumed. and the floors washed. i'd like to get our bedroom cozy and inviting again instead of messy with clothes and books that need to be put away. i'd like to finish re-organizing the blue room. and ultimately paint the blue room so it could be the gray room.....but i'm sure even when it is painted, it will still be known as the blue room. 13 years of referring to it as the blue room can't be erased with a paint job. but instead, i keep falling asleep on the sofa. i guess january is wintry and sleepy even when it's not cold and snowy.
i had a lovely day at the studio today. i have so many ideas and projects that i can jump between. it keeps my energy high to work on ideas as i have them. paper. painting. collage. combining all of it at times. but sewing is my meditation. i sew while my mind races with other ideas. today i kept popping up to tracy's bright little room to plan collaborative ventures. organizing our ideas for the month. for the year. our sales this month will be upon us soon. wednesday january 18th we'll be open from 3 p.m. until 8 p.m. for you to drop by and see all the new stuff we've been working on this new year. and then sunday, january 29th from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m. we'll have new surprises for you.


  1. It is no wonder you keep falling asleep, you work so hard. I have a Spring cleaning list as long as my arm, but have decided to tackle it by doing just one room at a time.

  2. January is indeed a long and ( i think) a tiring month.
    i `m glad you bubble with creativity...
    and sleeping is propably what you need more.
    more than a clean and tidy house, right now...

    good luck on the open day : )

  3. I once had a "blue" room. It was such a horrible shade of blue and I love the color blue in almost any shade but this shade was simply awful!

    I lived with it by keeping the door shut until I was pregnant with my daughter. Back in the day, you didn't know what the sex of your baby was...you had to wait. So we painted over the horrid blue with plain white...a bright white. It took 3 coats of paint and that was before they actually had primers! LOL

    Sounds like you have been bizee!
