'WOYWW 12-4-13 - GIVEAWAY, The Mess, Spray Mini-Move and Eye Candy!'

by Mary Lou 'LuLu' Haynes

Howdy and Welcome,

Here's the mess...The table really was tidy a few days ago - didn't take a photo then. This was the state of things on my craft studio table after I had attended 2 back-to-back weekend retreats. And had moved on to play on another project. Now 'the mess' goblins attacked again...



When I went to upload 'the mess' pix, I found pix I had taken a while back and forgotten about. Months ago, I spent a few hours embellishing some acrylic tags by painting them with Copic markers and alcohol ink. Don't they look luscious? I call them eye candy. That was a really fun and easy project!

Hubby and I are in the process of moving portions of my craft studio to our basement - more space and shelf units down there. Yes, it is a long walk when inspiration hits, but the studio is just too crowded. I had to do some re-organizing. Spray painting in the basement made sense to me because this is where I will be closer to the water faucets.
He gave me an old table he had used for BBQing - it was just storing some old supplies. Below is the BEFORE photo of the sprays in my studio corner cabinet (under my owl collection and Granny White's bust). Next are the AFTER photos of the sprays in the basement plus the giant spray box my hubby had made for me.
This spray box was on the front porch. So now all the supplies I need for spray painting are consolidated into one area. The papers inside the box are ready and waiting to be spray painted... Yes, the basement IS ugly, but I don't care as long as I can spread out and work comfortably.

Happy WOYWW Lulu! That is my kind of mess, and lots of interesting things I would love to get my hands on there!
Great spray booth, and it looks like your spray collection expanded to fit the bigger space! This happens I find!

How clever, the tags look really dimensional, fab cheerful colours too. Back to back that's my kind of reason to make a mess!
