Greetings from what seems to be my other studio – at least for the moment. The kitchen table holds the dollhouse and my current project/obsession. I love magazines. Now, we all know that many of our favorite magazines have left us in the last year. Some, like Home Companion, I will never recycle. I have every issue. Country Home is another favorite. I am a magazine hoarder.
It has to stop. MHC is simply too small for all the stacks of magazines shoved into every available corner. Lately, I have been inspired by the posts of two blogging friends, Susan of The T-Cozy and Brenda of Cozy Little House. Both make inspiration books that are full of photos from favorite magazine articles. Susan graciously let me know the kind of sketch book she uses and I am in the midst of turning the sketch book into an inspiration book. I have been tearing sheets from my magazines – for hours. The stack of magazines to recycle is growing and there are many more to go through.
It’s all very satisfying. I’m getting rid of a lot of stuff and creating my inspiration book at the same time. There will also be a separate book for gardening.
I just found out that I have to drive to Providence, RI tomorrow to work on Beauty and the Beast. After working Friday and Saturday, I will drive back Sunday morning. Don has a performance in Manhattan on Sunday night and I have to be there! Elyse, will I be in your neck of the woods?
