Studio Makeover: I Can See The Floor!

For the last three weeks, I’ve been putting serious time into getting my studio re-organized. I’ve worked roughly every other day for 2-4 hours at a time. Yesterday, I hit a major milestone – I found the floor. At least, it seems like what I did. What actually happened is that everything I’d been sorting and piling finally had a container and/or home. All of a sudden, my studio was clean.

It feels like a complete and utter miracle. Not only do I have surfaces to work on, but I know where everything is. In the last 24 hours, I’ve done two projects (start to finish) in record time, without frustration. In both cases, I had an idea, could lay my hands on everything I needed to complete the project, and was working in no time. Clean up was easy because everything has a home. Every step of both projects was easy and fun! Wheee!
I’ve decided to spend this week blogging about the process involved in getting from studio hell to studio heaven. Tomorrow: The secret to my success!

Kit Dunsmore has believed in the magic underlying the muggle world since she was a child searching for the Shetland pony pooka she was sure was hiding in her back yard. She learned early on that books were magic doors into other worlds, and that she could revisit a beloved character or place by opening the right book. As she grew, she decided she wanted to make magic with words, too. Today Kit writes about things she loves: poodles and dragons, witches and artists, quirky underdogs and loyal friends. Whether her setting is 6th-century England, the imaginary Twelve Kingdoms, or an art-obsessed version of modern America, magic always finds its way into her story. She enjoys turning fairy tales inside out and watching characters sacrifice everything to reach their goal, but she also believes in happy endings. When she isn't writing, Kit experiences magic by making things with her hands. Over the years, she's made quilts, fabric sculptures, collages, sweaters, and blank books. Her newest interest is learning how to spin her own yarn, a skill guaranteed to strengthen one of her many delusions: that she is a self-sufficient pioneer woman. She also thinks she is a hobbit, a witch, an artist, and a good cook. Living in the foothills of Colorado, Kit enjoys the giant skies and prairie landscapes which suit her need for wide open spaces. In addition to hiking through glorious scenery with her husband or imagining herself living in the Middle Ages, Kit works as a pillow for her miniature poodle and polishes the next small piece of her handmade life.
