|Nice studio, eh:)|
Push has now come to shove for my upcoming show, The One of a Kind Show in Toronto. Booth Q-19. I have been a crammer all my life, and I instinctively know when the time has come that I must start. For this show, it's usually about 4-5 weeks out. I will now be working 24 hours/day....ok...exagerating a bit....but the oil will be burning into the wee hours.

With so many projects to complete, I have to be very organized in how I go about everything. I recently bot a filing drawer unit in order to hold components for each project. Usually, I have bits and pieces lying about my desk, and they end up getting nicked or misplaced. With this unit I have a safe place for each piece for every step of the way.
This is the drawer for the birdhouse pendants I'm in the middle of...
...and here's the dresses for a few vignettes...
Oh, how I love stickies:)
|This was the board for my summer shows.|
|My everyday stickies...these are in front on my face where I work.|
They have bits of info that I need at my fingertips.
My best friends in the studio are sticky notes. I use them for EVERYTHING! My board lists all vignettes that have to be made, in rows of Dresses, Birds, Flowers, Other. When I get the info out of my head and onto the board it allows me to feel calmer. When I complete a vignette, the sticky is taken down.
As I progress with some new vignettes, I'll post some pics. Currently, my chandelier idea is taking a break, I'm having a few issues. With the pieces safely in a drawer I can come back to it any time I have a brainwave.
