I painted another dresser for the studio. I am making some progress with the organization. It was a crazy around here this past week. One of my little puppies(Belle)was out in the yard playing and for some unknown reason just started yelping like I've never heard before. This happened in the evening so we had to wait until morning to get her to the vet. That was one long night! The poor little thing was in so much pain. Her leg was broken and she would need to have surgery. My vet does not do that kind of surgery, so we had to take her to another town about seventy miles away. She had the surgery, they put a pin and some screws in her little leg. She has some stitches and is not walking on the leg yet, but is starting to use it to hold her toys. The vet that did the surgery said this is common. She just came down on it wrong. I am just so glad she is doing better. It is very challenging trying to keep the two puppies apart. They have to be separate for 4 weeks. I painted this dresser with Belle's supervision. She loves to go to the studio.

I gathered some upholstery fabric and started tearing 2 inch strips. Today I am sewing the strips together to make a skirt for the table. This is the kind of thing that happens and takes me off my track of organizing. It's like the creative bug never stops and I just have to give in! I love it!

If you are new to my blog these pictures will be new and if your are a regular blogger friend you know that I lost my blog a few months ago. I am going to be adding some old pictures. I will be getting rid of the other blogs because with this new layout you have a way of searching for say: Art dolls and every post I have ever made will come up with that search, but not yet because I have to put my dolls back up on this blog This is a dresser that was painted for my sewing room. All the furniture painted for the studio is just freehand. I make it up as I go along. Don't think just paint!
A little wacky, but I like it!
I just thought I would give a quick update of whats going on in the studio. This week was spent painting one of my main work tables. I have been wanting to do this for a long time. I painted the top of the table to go with some material that I purchased a while back. I am going to skirt the table so I can hide things like canvas and stuff waiting to be painted. It will be nice to have a painting area. I will share more pictures when it's finished. I have also been moving shelves and have started filling them with stuff. They look empty right now, but that will soon change. There is a chandelier over the table just waiting to be altered.

Wow! The week went by so fast! I am still here, but I wanted to let you know I will not be posting again until August 1. I am re-doing my studio. Things get to be so messy I can't work. I know you all have the same issue (stuff). It seems to be an on going battle for us all. I have an upstairs and downstairs, so I am going to switch and work where I am now living. It is a little bit bigger. I hope this will help me to get more organized and if this does not work, I will pull out my hair! Talking about hair, I am thinking of doing dreadlocks. Most of my family thinks it will look great, but the DH does not want me to do it. I wonder? Take care and I hope to see you all soon.
