Messy Workshop Blog Hop 04/27/2012 Hosted By BsueBoutiques.com

Bsue Boutiques Bbsueboutiques Supplies Messy Workshop Blog Hop Party! See all participants here:    Blog Hop

I am, by nature, an organized lady. Not by DNA but by the fact that I was born in a single-wide mobile home and then spent many years of my adult life living in same. Anyone who has lived in a single-wide mobile home knows that you learn very quickly how to maximize the use of that 10 foot by 50 foot space, least you feel like a human sardine.

Well, I organized my art studio and then left my very capable assistant, Copper, in charge while I was gone. What I returned to was a disaster of epic proportions as my dear employee decided to have a party while I was gone. THIS is what I returned home to:
Copper hung over from the night before


Crazy insane amounts of unorganized bins that have taken over our guest bed.


Copper and her mannikin friends must have had a real good time at my expense as the liquor cabinet was left bone dry.....and my art studio resembled a war zone.
Dining Room Table/Steampunk Heaven







Copper's idea of making her own art
Copper's organizational skills



Dr Brassy on Etsy







Delilah Cat Age 15
Farallon Fur Missile Von Shtubby Butt Age 6 mos

Every work area should have a cat. It's a law or something.
I just about cried when I viewed the disaster in what was, my beautiful studio....But there is hope! See next blog update for Dr Brassy to the rescue!

  2. Thanks for the laugh! Ah, but isn't it when you're sorting out piles of stuff like this that you suddenly see *this* next to *that* and an amazing new creation is born?!

  3. Too neat! My workshop is REALLY messy. I have to keep it in one room or it reproduces and crawls out the door! In response to your question and comment Dr. Brassy, I agree, it is the messiest! :) and yes Eliot has glue on caps on his front claws. He hates having me put them on him, but he keeps snagging my pants for work and I don't need that any more. Thanks for looking!

  8. Gotta love that drunken Copper. I need me a drunken mannequin head, I always say, what makes your workspace are your mascots and your memorabilia. Copper reminds me of that song, Brandy, you're a fine girl! LOL Can't wait to see you in California on the 16th of June! Wish I could come to your house and work on a project together. Maybe someday! ;-)

  14. So THAT is where my skeleton went......to Copper's drunken bash! I was wondering. Love your mascot! Cool studio. Admire your work tremendously. I've loved steampunk for the past couple of years, but never dared to attempt any steampunk jewelry until last week. You are in inspiration.

  26. I was worried by that first photo. Way too clean!! But the guest bedroom, now that is our style! And your two cats. Senior cat hidden away behine a panel, young rival lording it on the sofa! I love it. It reminds me of my lovely old grandma kitty who ruled our roost till she passed. I still miss her and I have a tear in my eye as I type!!
