It is official!

I am seriously running out of room in my studio! Between the finished work for sale, the finished work not for sale, the unfinished messes, the tools, the computer, the scanner, the printer, the paintings...........I am piling things on top of each other. It isn't good....

It isn't like I can throw anything out. I need it all I tell you! All of it! Right down to the last piece of already popped bubble wrap. I keep buying plastic boxes at The Container Store, but hey, guess what? You need room for them too!

Anyway, I have to figure out something soon. Sigh.............double sigh.

I also thought I would share some experiments I did this weekend with inverting my stamp designs. They look so different. I was pretty surprised. They seem to have so much more substance. I am going to try doing some of this technique on my beads. Although you really can't do too much sanding on them or you will sand away the raised designs. But it is an interesting new direction to take. And I am all about new directions.

Hence, the reason there is no room left in my studio..........

 I was very excited this morning to wake up to the sale of my sugar skull beads. They have been getting lots of hearts ever since I listed them on Etsy. It is funny, I did it as a bit of a lark but everyone really liked them! I'll have to make some more!

Don't you love it when you get recognition or validation for the things you think might just be a lark? Then sugar skull beads are cool! I can so relate to not having enough room and wanting to keep everything because it just might be the next new direction to go in.....
I like the inverted stamp designs. Does it make you want to get out your metal clay?!

I can see why the sugar skulls are getting so much attention -- they're wonderful! :)

I can relate to having a huge collection of stuff, including bubble wrap. And to buying containers but realizing there's not much room for those!
