Well, I thought it was time to show some pics of where I do what I do! They likely speak for themselves. I'll be brief. To create, I need to have everything within hands reach (or stretched reach.) I also need to be able to see what I have - you know, out of site out of mind. I'm fortunate that what comes into my house goes straight onto a shelf, not under the bed, in the back of a cupboard, between the mattresses, and brought out one item at a time, so as to not give my respect 'other-half' irreversible shock! My puppies seem to take my over indulgence in art supplies with a graceful attitude as long as they also get a treat...bless their hearts. SQUISHY HUGS.
