I broke most of my “rules” at one point or another but I’m ok with that. They’re just guidelines anyway 😉

Rules/Guidelines

  • I will do half an hour of something clay or art related at least 5 days a week.
  • At least 3 of those days need to be creative and making art. The other 2 can go to cleaning the studio, art business, training, etc. As long as it’s constructive.
  • No books or tv on those nights until after I get my art done.
  • I will post my progress regularly – at least 3 times a week.
  • I will have fun.

I spent more time on pulling apart the studio and organizing than I did on clay, but I’m ok with that too. It will help most in the long run, I think. I just have to finish this round.

Here’s the current state of the back half of the studio with the file cabinets moved out, the large bookcase moved across the room, and three new wooden drawer units in place.

HUGE thank you to my husband for all his help, since he did all the furniture moves and assembly.

Studio organization is never done, but I think it will be much better in a few days. And having a clean workspace always gets me inspired.

It never STAYS clean (I end up with only 6″ square workspace at a clay day – even when I have a table to myself) but that’s what it’s for. Creating and making and having fun.

And I did have fun this month, even though I did so much work. So it was worth it.

Will I do it again? Probably.

But I have a lot of things going on at the end of June (a class, RiverFire in Wakefield, a show I want to enter), so this month will be a bit less formal – getting the studio back in order, finishing the existing pieces in my Wonderland series, making a piece I’ve been wanting to work on, etc.

And I have a Clay Day tomorrow to look forward to. 🙂
