Spring Cleaning My Little Art Corner

I guess I knew it was time to hog out My Little Art Corner when I caught LW on the patio trying to teach Rubi and Charli (the Chihuahuas) how to be search and rescue dogs :)

My Little Art Corner in reality comprises two inside corners and maybe 1/4th of the Sun room. This is the room we do 80% of our living in. It's a wonderful huge room on the second floor with the west wall being all windows. That allows us to get a bit of the ocean breeze and the windows are frosted so that cuts down on the heat a bit. Our computers, all our books and magazines, an amazingly comfy couch and chair to sit and read in, even a little table to eat at. What else? Oh yeah the ipod and a CD player what more could you want?? A TV you say, hmmmm sorry no TV didn't have room in the 5'/8' trailer for one when we moved down 3 years ago and have been way to busy to go buy a replacement :) LW has his computer set up in the opposite corner from me. This way we each have our own little space but still be able to spend time together.

LW's corner always looks like this, and the rest of the room remains picked up.

Then there is My Little Art Corner :) Bless LW he never ever says a word no matter how much visual noise there is over here. Not even when the visual noise morphs into visual chaos!!

In Feb.we bought a friend's cheap chip board cupboard to put art supplies and my ever growing stash piles in. It has a set of doors which on one hand is very nice but on the other you can't always see what's in it. But it does cut down on the continual assault of the BLACK dust that sticks to everything.

It took me a whole day but I got it cleaned and organized :) I'm feeling mighty good about it actually. In this little 6'/10' space I have my vintage ceder desk, computer desk (which has my lap top and sewing machine on it), copier sitting on a Rubbermaid storage tub, our old dresser, the cupboard, the chihuahuas' crate, a side table and the gooshy orange reading chair. Less I forget the most important piece of equipment the osculating fan!! Anyway I'm sure you would agree that's a whole lot of jun..mmm valuable equipment in one little corner. I do everything here except cut out patterns. For that I use the little dining room table on the other side of the room.

Well there you have it, my clean Little Art Corner. It's not ever going to make the pages of Where Women Create but that's okay. Now the next project is to have LW make a cork board so that I can quit putting holes in the wall with all those little pieces of inspiration you collect along the way :) Have a most audacious Sunday or Monday my Bloglandian friends depending on where in the world you are ;)

I'm sorry I didn't get this posted last evening as planned. I wasn't staying on task very well and time seems to have gotten away from me :( I'm sure you remember that yesterday was Saturday, and Saturday is always Date night for us :) Well we are still in the Spring Time of our love for each other!! Saturday, is our time to ourselves, we shut out the rest of the world and focus on us. :) Soooooo any way I ran out of time and had to put you on hold till today. But I'm back and will get a few pictures uploaded and get this puppy posted.
