It's a glorious day here in northern Illinois. I have the windows open and the doors open. The birds are chirping loudly, the flowers are blooming and the trees are trying to sprout their little leaves. The forecast for today is 85 degrees!!!
I cannot believe it. My only hope is that this wonderful sunshine and warmth will hang around and not give way to cold, gray skies anytime soon.
With this warm weather comes a fervent desire to spring clean. Not in the same way my dear old mom used to, but spring clean my studio. Clear out, clean up.
I've got my finger in so many pots so to speak that I've got an abudance of artwork
as well as art supplies. In the next few weeks I hope to go through my supplies
and figure out just what I REALLY need to keep and what I can toss.
There may be some giveaways posted or some items put on etsy.
In the meantime, I have started a new etsy shop, Flamingo Studio
to try and sell a few of the ceramics I've made over the years. They are piling up and cluttering my house. I've got vases and bowls in every nook & cranny
plus an entire cabinet full in my basement.
So if you're in the need for small litte vases right now, I just added some to my shop. Photo below shows them grouped together.
I'm going to use this etsy shop for my ceramics and assemblages and keep my other pinkbirdgirl etsy shop for fabric creations and collage/mixed media pieces.
We'll see how it goes...
Have a glorious weekend my friends! I hope you're experiencing weather as great as I am!
