Good and (ever so slightly) bad news...I'm getting a whole new work room! It's actually my own room, but I haven't been able to use it in eons since it was blocked up with...is there a nice way to put it? Ever live with packrats?
Anyhow that's the good news. It's a small room, but, so what? One of the virtues of making jewelry is that it's a compact hobby (unless of course you are fortunate enough to do metalworking). 100% of my materials fit into three of those plastic boxes made by Darice that you get at Michaels, an old cardboard box that once housed a Givenchy Organza perfume set, a paper lunch bag, and a couple of odd items like my block. That's it.
The ever so slightly bad news is that the room needs a lot of cleaning. I've already washed the curtain, done some Windexing/dusting, cleaned the little fridge (don't ask, but we own a small refrigerator), vacuumed one side of the rug... I still need to vacuum the other side*
* Why vacuum both sides of the rug? It's one of the best ways to prevent moths from making your rug their home. Moths like it quiet, and the bottom side of the rug is quieter than the top.
...do some mopping, finish the Windexing/dusting. I need to go through my computer books too but I might put that off for later; some of them are very old.
That's one of the places I feel my age the most. When I was young, I could go all day, cleaning. Just give me a cold beer, a fresh vacuum bag, Windex, Pledge, cheap paper towels...I added Swiffer cloths to this lineup... Now I did only half of it. And I'm trying to motivate myself now to do the other half, so I can start setting up my jewelry stuff there.
