A Little Blue Grass and Studio Cleaning



Something about Blue Grass Music keeps up the pace in my studio while creating or cleaning. 
Love Pandora!



Now to the fancy footwork...yes you are allowed to dance.  You know we jewelry artists sit often working at the jewelry desk so a little fancy footwork across the room might burn off ONE salt water taffy.  NOT.  But I can dream right.

So Flint says "I am out of here, Mom is a better jewelry artist than dancer" 

Everyone is a critic!

I would never of dreamed that I would spark people to want to clean up.  So my friend Sharyl of Sharyls Jewelry decided to do a blog hop on just that.  So even though my studio was clean at the time you all know how that goes.  Creative people are always getting their hands into it so here are some of my before and after pictures. I set my timer and this cleaning took me 1 hour and 5 minutes.  So if you set your mind to it.  It can be done.  Play your favorite music to motivate you.




My shipping area.  Not to messy really but enough that It would be hard to pretty up a package.

Flint cleans up to.  Pick up your toys doodle!

(I tried to fix his eyes but now he looks crazed! Must of been moms dancing!)

I did want to show you one area of my studio I forgot to in my previous blog.  I have some under desk storage.  Pack it in I say.  This is where I keep all my stones binned by color or if multicolor by their geology like Jasper.



In the meantime........jiggety jig. Off to mess it up!!!!

  1. I'm still hearing that jig and the video ended a while ago! Who knew we would get a talent show included here! I should have given you credit again in the blog this time for inspiring this entire event, Kristin! It is absolutely true that your post about setting up your new work area did just that! Thanks so much for TWO great posts! I'm so glad you took part! Very entertaining as well as informative! ~Sharyl

    1. It was fun to time it and really see how long it took if I put my mind to it. I get so distracted otherwise.

  6. Ahhh I see it was the spring in my step I was missing to get moving and get cleaning. You're doing an excellent job with your beautiful space, I can see why Flint would enjoy being there too. I'm excited for the day when there is a spot for everything to go back to. Thank you for the inspiration!

  8. I like bluegrass music a old rock... waving hot glass rods around to keep time to the music is occasionally dangerous... Your workspace looks lovely mine is almost as bad as when I started some of it is worse! I had good intentions.... now time to shovel piles so I have room to do my income tax!

    1. It really keeps you on task and you can really accomplish a lot if you don't get side tracked.
